“I was extremely pleased with the level of service Lynn Low and Southern Star Tour and Travel provided us on our trip.  Lynn is experienced, thorough, professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and has an eye for detail that is impressive.  He knows how to communicate not only with directors, but with parents, administrators, and all of the businesses and coordinators one will encounter on any band, choir, or orchestra trip.  We will definitely use his services again on our next major trip.”

I have worked exclusively with Penny and Lynn Low for the past 15 years because of their quality and organization, but more so the personal service and care they give.  I have never had a serious problem on our trips because of Penny's meticulous planning and I know I can speak to her personally at any time if there were a situation.  It is this personal touch and attention to every detail that will keep me as a customer for life.

The tour Penny set up for us in April to Branson, Missouri for 'Branson Live on Stage' was outstanding. We had first class accomodations and the students were really excited about performing as the opening acts in two different theaters for the Liverpool Legends and the Chinese Acrobatic Troupe. In addition, the Dixie Stampede was outstanding and all of it went very smoothly due to your hard work in setting up all the venues, tickets, etc. Thanks for a terrific tour to Branson!"

I have worked with Lynn and Penny off and on for 20 years. I have tried other tour agents but I always end up coming back to them for advice and always get great service and the best price around. I took my band to Hawaii in 2006 with Penny and could not have asked for a better trip. The level of organization and professionalism on that trip could never be matched. I will always look to Penny and Lynn for future trips. And would recommend them to anyone.

Penny and Lynn  Low and I have done business together for the past 10 years.  They  are caring, competent, Christian and trustworthy friends.  They have been there for my choir in every way possible.  When starting as a clueless new director,  they were always at my side to make our competition trip the best possible event.  I will never do business with anyone else.  I am thrilled that they are now the directors of their own company.  I know they will bring integrity and many years of knowledge  to any tour that is designed for any choir, band or orchestra.

I have known Lynn Low for about thirty-five years and I have found him to be a man of his word.  He is fair, honest, and an exceptional businessman.  He knows how people like to be treated and he does a marvelous job at giving the best service to his clients that is humanly possible.  I have known his wife Penny for several years also, and I have found her to be just as fair and honest as Lynn.  Although I no longer have my own band, due to my retirement about twelve years ago, I would encourage current directors to contact Lynn and Penny at to book their next trip.

I have nothing but the absolute best to say about working with Southern Star Tour and Travel and Lynn Low. Lynn has an amazing understanding not only of finding high quality musical experiences and planning every aspect of trips, but also of what directors need.  His experience as a band director in Texas gives him insight far stronger than most tour companies can offer.  Above and beyond, Lynn Low is one of the highest quality individuals I am blessed to work with.  I absolutely recommend Southern Star Tour and Travel for its heartfelt service and incredible dependability.

Lynn and Penny Low have been my trip gurus since I started teaching and traveling with high school students over 7 years ago.  They have been invaluable to Tahlequah High School Choirs and other ensembles at Tahlequah Public Schools for many, many years.  They have always gone above and beyond to make every trip perfect!  Their professionalism, knowledgeable advice and planning for every destination makes hectic travel with 60+ high school students a pleasure. They have always held my hand with assurance as we have developed a personal friendship that has seen me through the planning stages to the smiling faces of my students as we complete “the best trip ever” every year. I entrust them with the most important part of my professional life: my students.
