What our guests say...
"We have no hesitation in recommending travel with Soundmart Tours.
From the moment my sister and I paid our deposit (18 months prior) for the CMA Fest 2019 Nashville & Memphis trip Nathan and Mel were in constant phone and email contact with both of us, regularly updating us on tour info.
They went above and beyond to ensure we knew what was going on and that we were comfortable.
The trip was so well organised and they had thought of every little detail.
Absolutely loved our trip to Nashville and couldn't have asked for a more seamless process.
Having guest hosts with knowledge of the city and festival to give us inside tips and tricks enhanced the trip even more.
Thank you Soundmart Tours for everything!"
Celeste & Cindy Newbery
"To my family & friends if any of you are thinking of going to Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans then I cannot recommend enough Nath & Mel from Soundmart Tours.
Their attention to detail was fabulous - so organised & kept us all very informed before & during the trip - what we have seen & done over the last week has been awesome - lots of special surprises that only came due to Nathan’s contacts over here.
If you want to know more ask me or just call them.
Thanks Nath & Mel I had the most fun, informative, exciting time of my life
Thanks to Troy Kemp & Damien Baguley (Alesha & Lori) friends for life."
