John Howie's Music Tours have
been operating successfully since 1995. The tours
are high quality sightseeing tours with a focus
on music, especially in the evenings. The main
idea, with the music, is to see and hear the local
musicians. Performances range from major international
shows, such as the Edinburgh Tattoo and the Grand
Ole Opry, to performances in pubs and concert halls.
John also involves his tour groups in lots of informal,
fun-filled music making; i.e., singing on the coach,
bush poetry nights, informal evening sing-a-longs,
and dancing. However, you do not have to be a musician,
or be particularly interested in music, to enjoy
they are fabulous sightseeing tours....... the
music is a bonus!
Since 1998 John has been running the tours in partnership
with Travelrite International Pty Ltd, a Melbourne
based company with particular expertise in special
interest tours. Travelrite has been organising
special interest tours since 1995.
