Welcome to Melody Tours
Welcome to Melody Tours! I am a “hands on” travel professional with 30 years experience in the business, trained by P&O in the eighties, having worked for many travel companies and now simply freelance. I work with lots of ad hoc specialists in their own fields, to facilitate and handle groups of any size who wish to have a tour or event arrangements tailored to suit their requirements and with my hands on experience and normally me in attendance……
Since 1999 I have worked with groups (many I now consider family) who ride carousels around Europe along with many other subjects, from antique toys or puzzles to steamers on lakes and 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 like the Model Engineering Exhibition at Karlsruhe, which breaks up the winter nicely! It will also visit other museums while we are out there, and a take a trip into the Black Forest.
We also run trips to Mechanical Music events in the Netherlands and Belgium, indeed the MOOS November tour by now is legendary!
In 2017 we have tours to Waldkirch in the Black Forest, leaving on June 19th by coach and 22nd by rail for the Mechanical Organ festival there with an extension tour into Switzerland.
So have a look at the Tours page and keep up to date with what’s occurring on the Blog, which is about my personal tour of duty on this planet over the last twenty years or so and will be updated as I feel more clarity about the content.
