Welcome to Melody Tours
Welcome to Melody Tours, an account of my journey on this planet through my experiences with many different groups along with a site that sells odd ball tours to unusual places.
I am a travel professional with 30 years experience in the business, trained by P&O in the eighties, and have worked for many travel companies as an employee but nowadays I am simply “hands on” freelance. And I love it! I love the challenge of the unusual events and arrangements and I love the company that I enjoy when I travel with the groups.
Over the years I have worked with all sorts of groups (many I now consider family) who ride carousels and listen to mechanical music all round Europe, some huge groups who have visited private collections of antique toys or vintage puzzles, or some smaller ones who fancied sheduled trips on lakes, steamers and museums along with spiritual events and garden tours. To quote the words of Hans Christian Andersen, “to travel is to live” and I couldn’t agree more!
Over the years we’ve become visitors to events in Europe that you wouldn’t know about if you hadn’t been there privately with a group, like the Model Engineering Exhibition in Freidrichshafen which will be a first trip this November, so if you want to bring a group to this beautiful lakeside setting in the heart of Europe then this is the place to find the help you need. Some are already flying but for a group we can put on a coach to the event with overnight stops on the way…..
There is also a new tour for the Music Box Society UK to the Netherlands and I am just beginning the plans for Dordrecht in 2018.
