For more than 35 years our family have endeavored to create memorable experiences for opera lovers to hear world's finest singers perform in opulent European national theaters and to see spectacular sights in India.
Travelling with the Aranis on European Opera Tours is always both a pleasure and an enlightening experience. Our trip to Scandinavia in May 2016 once again confirmed that these small, personalized tours are thoughtfully organized with first-class opera performances, outstanding accommodations and dining, great guides, ample free time, and well-informed travel companions. Scandinavia was our fourth trip with European Opera Tours, and we will definitely travel with them again in the spring of 2017. In all of the cities we visited (Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, and Stockholm), we saw the major sights, had ample time for exploring on our own or relaxing, and were able to acquire a real sense of the city and its history. Copenhagen was a particular pleasure because Grethe was our guide, and she not only knows the city like the native she is but also is extremely articulate in explaining the sights and giving advice on what to see when exploring on one’s own. All of our stops included wonderful opera performances with outstanding voices and exciting productions. The Aranis always select a range of operas - some standard repertory, some less frequently performed works, and a mix of composers and time periods. In addition, they provide clear, helpful synopses of each of the operas. We arrived home with our heads full of sights and music and ready to think about our next trip with European Opera Tours.
