What our guests say...


Where do we start! Nath, Mel, Jamie Lynn and all the team at Soundmart Tour's you guys rock! The amount of effort and time they put into making sure that our trip was one of a kind was incredible. A big shout out to the tour hosts Damien, Blake, Sinead and Troy for sharing your love of country music with us along the way. This was our first time travelling to the USA and CMA Fest and have come home missing all of the new friends we have made. So If you are thinking about going to CMA, don't think about it just book a tour with these amazing people you won't regret it. See y'all next year

Justin and Jody McCarthy (The JJ's)

I have had an incredible holiday travelling to Nashville for CMA Fest and then onto Memphis,
Mississippi, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Los Angeles.
I am so grateful to have been able to travel with Soundmart Tours. The extensive work they put into
every detail creating this amazing trip and the special experiences that were included was nothing
but incredible and a credit to all involved.
The team are professional, knowledgeable and go out of their way to make your trip unforgettable
to the point of customising days to allow last minute ‘extra’ rare and amazing opportunities.
My highlights of this trip were our day trip out to Storytellers hideaway farm and museum in Bon
Aqua with our private performance from Mark Cash, this was such a precious and treasured
Tallahatchie Flats was a beautiful and tranquil place where we were lucky enough to be invited to a private event and entertained and enjoyed sharing a meal with a group of local folk from
Greenwood. This was one of my favourite evenings on the trip.
I have made some great friendships from the trip and fond memories to hold onto for a long time,
our guest hosts also made the trip fun and the numerous on the spot performances were very
If you enjoy music then I would highly recommend you book a tour with Soundmart Tours you will
not regret becoming a part of the Soundmart family. I can’t wait till my next trip! Thank you
Soundmart Tours you guys Rock!

"The Soundmart Team are amazing, they went above and beyond for the tour group every step of the way. Mel and Nath helped me to overcome difficulties to be able to attend the tour and the tour hosts made themselves available but also went out of their way to ensure everyone had anything they needed and were managing ok. The group felt like lifelong friends from the start. My first trip overseas could not have been in better hands. Just do it !!"
