"I would recommend Gower to any group planning a music tour abroad. A small and very caring company, you are made to feel very much part of the planning. They will do everything to accommodate your wishes for excursions and concerts. I have worked with Gower every year since 2000, therefore combining on 19 European tours. Each one has been a success due to their attention to detail and willingness to communicate fully at all times via phone or email. We have also had a number of visits to the school over the years to discuss tours and therefore be able to really know who we are dealing with. The boss of the company actually acted as our van driver one year to transport our instruments. Overall an excellent company and many thanks in particular to Sonia, Anita and Eleanor!"
