Why take a trip with AFO?

Our guided escorted tours are epic and hard to beat when it comes to adding a wonderful memory and experience to your life story and choir experience.

We have been running choir tours since 2012 and have added many locations to our portfolio including: London, Dublin, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Glasgow, Belgium and many more. 

You are in safe hands! Helen (our choir founder) is also an experienced time served ABTA qualified travel agent and rep . We use trusted third parties to put together all of our bespoke travel packages, cutting out the middleman and keeping costs down.

We offer musical packages and the trip cost includes all of the activities we organise for you along with your transport, rooming arrangements and in most cases, a half board package. We offer great hotels with fab reviews, most with twin bed accommodation. 

Make new life friends, come with us and remember... what goes on on tour, stays on tour!

Your Hotel and Location

Scenic waterfront location near a vibrant city centre.

Overlooking the cobbled quayside in a former industrial heartland of the city, Best Western Plus The Quays Hotel Sheffield is a prominent venue on the historic Victoria Quays. The city centre is a 10-minute walk away, with its eclectic shops and attractions like the Crucible Theatre, Winter Garden and Millennium Gallery. From the hotel you can also enjoy a stroll along the River Don to Kelham Island, one of Sheffield's most interesting museums. Set on a manmade island more than 900 years old, its interactive galleries bring the city's industrial past to life. Fancy a spot of retail therapy while you're here? Meadowhall shopping centre is only 3 miles away, while spectacular scenery beckons on a trip to the Peak District, just 8 miles from the hotel. During your stay at Best Western Plus The Quays Hotel Sheffield you can relax with a drink on the waterside terrace and make use of our Quays Leisure Club, complete with swimming pool, sauna and gym. Our 128 bright and airy bedrooms all have a work desk if you need to catch up with emails, as well as a large flat-screen TV with on-demand movies and a contemporary bathroom with refreshing power shower to wake you up in the morning. Some rooms also have a balcony and lovely views of the quayside.
