Music Tours - The Grand Ole Opry


A few comments by satisfied Music Tour clients

"Wow....I hoped it would be and it was my 'Blues Tour of a lifetime' !!! But it was also a great overview of the US and we covered a lot of ground and saw lots.
It gave me an insight into the country, it's culture & it's friendly people. Not just for blues fans, a fantastic trip for music fans wanting a snapshot of a vast & diverse country."
