Martin Randall Travel
Martin Randall Travel is a cultural tour operator in Britain. It specialises in small group tours and classical music festivals.
Martin Randall Travel was founded in 1988. Its primary focus is the organisation of small group tours, led by a lecturer who is an expert in their field. In 1994, the company expanded into producing music festivals to complement their small group tours. The company pioneered this concept, and has four festivals confirmed for 2014.
Martin Randall Travel focuses on a small clientele and has received favourable reviews. Ian Irvine in The Independent said, "All three... highlights from my life as a cultural tourist were part of the remarkable series of music festivals run by Martin Randall." Christine Headley praised Martin Randall Travel's handling of money - covering most costs and distributing local currency - on the festival she attended. Kenneth Asch wrote in the Travellers' Handbook, "Of all the travel services I have researched, Martin Randall Travel is perhaps the most comprehensive, culturally speaking."
