Martin Randall Travel's music festivals feature world-class performers in the finest and most appropriate venues. These festivals are organised and operated solely by MRT and are exclusive to MRT clients. Although numbers are much larger than on small-group tours—from 150 to 300 people—the principles of care, detail and intimacy, far from being diluted, are simply applied on a grander scale.
MRT also operates small-group music tours, providing top-category tickets to public concerts, either pre-existing festivals or a seasonal opera programme. View small-group music tours.
