Why we love music tours
If you’re anything like us, music has shaped your life.
Our favorite artists have provided the soundtrack to our whole lives, and we have a fascination in their stories and the places that made them famous.
But our tours aren’t only for passionate music fans. They provide a slice of social and cultural history and a very different way to explore the city you’re visiting to unearth more of its secrets.
Never salacious, our music tours respect our featured artists and their privacy.
Our music tours are made with love by a couple of music-loving chicks united across the Atlantic Ocean by their passion for the sounds that have shaped their lives. Find out more about our founders and how music has changed their lives.
Why take a city tour with SoundAround?
The beauty of a SoundAround tour is it allows you to move to your own beat – there is no schedule, no waiting around for the rest of your tour group to arrive.
Unlike other group tours, you will never find it cancelled at the last minute if not enough people book. This is because SoundAround music tours run to your schedule and are as long or as short as you would like to them to be.
With in-depth stories – some shared by the people who were actually there – it immerses you in a city like no other tour can.
