Opera, Ballet, Music & Art Tours from Ireland
Our opera, music and cultural holidays are designed to provide unique and memorable occasions for people enjoy and appreciate Opera, Ballet, Music, Art and History. Travel alone, with a friend or with family, get a group together, join an existing group. The majority of our tours run with between 10 and 20 participants. We limit numbers on our tours as we believe that the higher costs of smaller numbers are outweighed by the benefits of a smaller group on our specialised tours.
In addition to our programme of group tours, we offer the option of tailormade travel for those who wish to travel independently. Our tailormade programme includes the traditional favourites of Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Paris, Milan, Venice, Verona as well as the lesser visited destinations of Leipzig, Gdansk, Brezenz, Wroclaw and more.
All our holidays offer departures from Irish airports, however, we also offer land only packages on all group tours for those wishing to join our tours at the destination. Simply call us on +353 1 888 7840.
