Such an awesome trip! I loved exploring Stockholm and Tallin, and singing in the 5,000 person choir was life changing! Maury was great!

I have been leading musical tours for over 25 years - and I would not use anyone else but TRC. Tour Resource Consultants have been the absolute best in every aspect of musical ensemble travel. Their attention to "detail" is what makes them great. We have used them exclusively at PHS since 1999. Maury and his staff and beyond helpful, and are the best in the industry.
