"What a wonderful experience we had in Prague and Budapest. It was truly the trip of a lifetime! Without doubt, for the Rossmoyne staff and kids, our time in Europe will be the highlight of their high school years. Neil Coy - who has been on many music trips - said it was the best music trip he has ever been on!!"
"Many thanks for all you did to arrange the European leg of our tour and for looking after us so well. All tour participants thoroughly enjoyed the experiences and I’m sure the memories will live on for many years. One of my students said to me that the tour was the best thing he has ever done with school and I’ve had lovely letters of thanks from parents who have said that their boys had a wonderful time.
On a personal note, I really appreciated your helpfulness and your friendly manner both with the staff and with the students. We felt that we were in very good hands and that helped us to relax and to fully enjoy the experiences with the students. I hope that we will have the opportunity to meet again in the future.
With thanks and kind regards
PS Thanks again for the lovely personalised bottle of wine. I wrapped it very carefully in the middle of my suitcase and I was relieved that it travelled safely all the way back to Adelaide!"
"The positive cultural, musical and educational outcomes of the tour have been innumerable.The performance opportunities and the musical and and personal growth achieved by the students has been unique. The week of holidays sacrificed by staff was well rewarded by the great working and personal relationships forged with students in a common musical goal."
"I am only sorry that I cant come to Budapest every year "
"I miss Budapest, I miss Hungary"
"Hungary. Stunning place! Had a whole day of sightseeing and took heaps of shots but no time to publish them. Off to the Kodaly institute in Kecskemet for music workshops and first performance! Saw La Troubador at the State Opera House last night. Old 'Joe Green' (Giuseppe Verdi) can bang out a good tune!"
"Good morning from Budapest, most Beautiful city i have ever visited, visited the castle district yesterday, the beautiful old Gothic parliament house, and saw La Troubadour the opera. Today is my first concert in Keckscmet, hopefully should be fun!"
"river cruise in Budapest was AMAZING!!!! i liked it more than the Perth river cruises, yes that's right! Europe all the way!!!
and holy shit in 5 days i've taken 1130+ photos. IN FIVE DAYS!!!"
"Immediately after the concert we got transported straight to our amazing river cruise. The night scenery in Hungary is 1000000000000 times better than Perth. All the buildings are sparkling with night light, and everyone looked so pretty! <3"
Music Tour Journal
"Dear Endre and Olivér
On behalf of the parents, staff and students of Perth Modern School involved with the recent music tour to Hungary, I would like to sincerely thank you for the magnificent planning of all aspects of our visit to your wonderful country.
I have been involved with music tours and visits for over thirty years, and I can honestly say that the array of activities, the quality of the accommodation and meals, the coaches and guides and the attention to every little detail by you at Budaventura Travel was at the very highest level.
Our visit was a real highlight of a truly outstanding music tour and all of the touring party was totally overwhelmed at the level of support and activities undertaken by the students.
In this our school’s Centenary Year, this music tour will rank as the most memorable activity for the students, and I know that memories of the tour will remain with us all for ever.
With kind regards, and a great deal of anticipation for 2014."
