“A most enjoyable tour. Very good… package was very effectively ‘tailor made’ to our requests and time constraints. We appreciated Steve staying ‘on our case’ while we were on our tailor-made trip. Also, late (weather-related) changes to our return travel from Dharamshala to Delhi needed quick and decisive action by Howzat Travel, which was taken.”
    David & Mary Rance

    “Everything went very smoothly, and it was great to be able to rely on the flights, hotels and drivers.”
    Russell Fuller, BBC

    “First time I have travelled with Howzat Travel on a press trip, and they did a top job – from Kerala in the south to Dharamasala in the Himalayas, a top trip. Transfers on the ground worked efficiently. Many thanks.”
    Andy Wilson, The Guardian

    “Excellent! This was the first time we as a family had gone on an England tour and had never been to India. Ian and Steve were extremely helpful, answering my questions and putting my mind at ease. Both the hotel in Nagpur and the Kenilworth Beach Resort in Goa were fantastic, as were Des and Dave. They worked hard ensuring everything was organised and ensured everyone was included. They are both ‘best mates’ of my children now. They could not do enough for the group. The whole package was worth every penny. The whole experience cannot be put into words and we definitely want to repeat it. It was the best holiday we have ever had. The company at the cricket was brilliant and everyone took to Harry and Holly, it was a real family atmosphere. Christmas in Goa was excellent and a definite 5-star experience. All of us are looking forward to next year and hopefully a trip to the Ashes. Thank you from the Tyler family for providing us a fantastic holiday, with special thanks to Des and Dave. Holly and Harry are still talking about the experience.”
    Andy, Michelle, Holly & Harry Tyler

    “We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the outstanding England performance. An interesting group of travelling cricket aficionados – it all worked with the mix of people all at different stages of their India experience. The tour managers were excellent – well organised and good fun. We’re looking forward to joining another Howzat Travel tour before long.”
    Olivia Cooke and Dave Maddox

    “Thank you for letting my family come to India. We all had a great time especially me. I had the time of my life and hope to do it again. I met lots nice people – Des and Dave were amazing tour leaders. My favourite part was either the Dhoni run out when he was on 99, or Anderson bowling Sehwag.”
    Harrison Tyler, age 10

    “Excellent! Des was once again outstanding. My third tour with Howzat in 2012 (UAE, Sri Lanka & India) and what a tour – fantastic cricket, sightseeing and organisation. Very impressive, once again. Just keep doing what you are now – it is obviously working!!
    Steve Amos

    “The organisation – as ever – was first class, as were the hotels. Nothing was too much trouble both from the hotel staff and the tour managers. Des was an absolute gem to know and we look forward to meeting him in the near future. David was excellent, nothing too much trouble for him and very sociable. We look forward to bumping into friends old and new in New Zealand.”
    Mick & Josie Spencer

    “Excellent! Very good from start to finish, with good company throughout. This is my third tour with Howzat Travel this year (UAE, Sri Lanka & India). I’m very impressed with Ian and Steve’s hands-on approach, which makes Howzat stand out from other tour companies. Looking forward to Australia…”
    Colin Webb

    “This was a wonderful tour with many fantastic sites, plus two marvellous test matches to boot! Howzat Travel has a marvellous opportunity to grow its business and really cement its position as the leading cricket tour provider. I’m very satisfied with the value for money I got on this tour.”
    Rob Turton

    “Des was very professional and the tour was very enjoyable. I look forward to the next one. Excellent! “
    Vivien Carroll

    “A good, fun tour… David and Des were excellent tour managers. They worked hard to involve everyone and make sure we all knew where to be, and when. David was very attentive and organised without being overbearing, and Des’ enthusiasm and knowledge of cricket was great, particularly for our younger tour members! The tour was better as a result of both their efforts. At the cricket – a great position relative to play and we enjoyed the comfy seats at Nagpur! With respect to the sight-seeing holiday… we were very impressed – the guides were all very good too. Excellent value for money overall on both on the cricket tour and our tailor-made sightseeing holiday elements. We wanted a 5* experience and we got it. We paid what seemed a fair price. I think one of the unique elements of this holiday (the whole holiday) is how the Howzat Travel team added the personal touch. Excellent!”
    Karen Fitzgerald and Nick Jackson

    “We had a brilliant time, made even better by our tour manager Des Newton who was fantastic – excellent personality, always in control and made sure no-one was left out of anything. We felt a sense of independence as we had time to do our own thing and not just cricket. We were happy with every aspect of our holiday and we would not hesitate to travel with Howzat Travel again. We hope to meet everyone again in the not too distant future.”
    Joe & Anne Carr

    “What a holiday! Thank you very much indeed for an outstanding tour of India – it’s so much appreciated. Truly fabulous… I seriously loved it! Thank you for all your help ensuring that my time in Mumbai, Kolkata and Nagpur was magnificent. Des is a brilliant tour manager and it’s a pleasure to be in his company.”
    Andrew Tipple

    “Thank you for a wonderful experience. After 30 years of seeing England on tour, this was my first with a tour operator. Your tour managers were helpful, attentive, friendly, entertaining and thorough. I shall catch up with some new friends in New Zealand, especially Des, Helen and Laurence. I shall recommend you to those sports travellers who need that extra bit of reassurance when in foreign places. I hope your company goes from strength to strength…”
    Stanley Jacques

    “I had a great time. The best tour yet for cricket, weather, food, hotels and people on the tour…”
    Margaret Watton

    “Thanks for a fabulous trip!”
    Howard Jones

    “Thank you to everyone on my second Howzat Travel cricket tour to India – I had a wonderful time. Des and David were superb hosts throughout (and I know more about Ostriches than ever before)! The whole tour went smoothly and I met some wonderful new people in the process. I look forward to going on future tours””
    Colin Baty

    “Thanks for a brilliantly-organised tour. I had a great time and it goes without saying I met some lovely people.”
    Dave Holmes

    “Fantastic cricket and a good crowd of people One of the best tours I’ve ever been on! And Des was great…”
    Richard Crompton

    “I had a fantastic tour of India with the Howzat group and I’m looking forward to New Zealand in March 2013. Des is a top tour leader. I’ve been on five tours with Howzat Travel and had a great time on them all.”
    Nigel Boulter

    “Can I just take this opportunity to praise every single member of the team in India. Des, David, Laurence and especially Helen. I have had an absolute hoot, and the meal with Aggers was an amazing surprise. Thank you very much.”
    Martin Gamman
