Majestic Mid Wales

Mid Wales is home to rich, rolling green landscapes, the unspoilt Ceredigion coastline, the stunning Cambrian Mountains and glorious castles, gardens and railways. An idyllic rural destination with plenty to see and do.

Powis Castle, began life as a medieval fortress and is one of the country’s finest examples towering high on a rock above the garden terraces. Spend time exploring the magnificent collections contained in the castle and its world-famous garden, with spectacular yew hedges and lavish herbaceous borders, as well as a superb collection of treasures from India displayed in the Clive Museum.

Part of the rugged Cambrian Mountains, Elan Valley Visitor Centre in the beautiful Elan valley, is a beautiful and unspoilt area made even more compelling by the dams and reservoirs which together create a wonderful, living landscape. The views are stunning and you are never far away from points of interest. The visitor centre, set in a fantastic location against a backdrop of a Victorian stone dam, tells the story of how the dams were built.

Take in the captivating scenery on the award-winning Vale of Rheidol Railway for a nostalgic journey through some of Wales’ most spectacular scenery or embark on a 6 mile return vintage steam train journey through the breathtaking rugged beauty of the Brecon Beacons from Pant to Torpantau.

As a Chorister, and eventually Head Chorister in our local church choir for eleven years, Jo was talented, dedicated and could always be relied on to work to the utmost of her undoubted abilities. I would expect that she would apply the same attributes to her professional life

From cathedrals and abbeys, churches and stately homes, all steeped in centuries of history, some in Roman Towns others in quintessential English ‘picture postcard’ villages, every choir and musical ensemble should spend a tour exploring the United Kingdom and Ireland. Whatever part of the country you to choose to visit, by working with a knowledgeable team of people who know the regions inside out from both a tourism and musical perspective, you will be guaranteed the richest of touring experiences
Tim KnightBritish composer and Choral Director
Jo and her team came up with a fantastic itinerary for our choir and planned everything to the last detail. We always felt we were in safe hands and that they were on the end of a phone to help us with anything we needed. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

In May 2020 we were due to tour the Stirling area in Scotland and due to the current coronavirus pandemic we took the difficult decision to call off the tour. I’d like to give our thanks and praise to Jo and her team for all the planning and preparation she had done to put the itinerary together – she was able to provide us with an excellent range of stunning concert venues, plus some great suggestions for our leisure time, and we look forward to working with her again soon.

Care and attention to detail of the highest degree. The planning with Jo Porter was detailed and meticulous, with nothing being missed, and although she was not involved in the accommodation arrangements, she nevertheless checked it out and acted as an intermediary.
