"Lovely venues, lovely audiences, comfortable accommodation. Alahree was very prompt and efficient with her responses and understood our needs well."

Gill Chapman, Ceceilia Singers

"It’s hard to think how anything could have improved on this trip – it was superb in every way! The response to the whole tour has been entirely positive. Alahree was first class as ever and it was a pleasure to work with Alberto. The inspection visit in November was hugely beneficial and made the whole process of planning the concerts and itinerary so much more straightforward."
