This was our 4th tour with Howzat and it gets better every time. The trip to Namibia between tests was completely different to anything we’ve ever done before and everyone who went thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it was a superbly organised tour we didn’t feel any obligation to do things we didn’t want to. The Tour Managers gave us plenty of space to do our own things but we knew they were there and very accessible and efficient if we did need anything. We will definitely be using Howzat Travel again.

I can’t speak highly enough of the organisation and efficiency of all the people in the office and on the trip. All the arrangements for the cricket were really good and all my individual activities were well catered for. I enjoyed the whole trip from start to finish. The full hospitality was really good, particularly in Cape Town. One of my transfers wasn’t quite right but this was soon rectified without any hassle. Can’t wait to go again! Thank you.
Good value. Much better value than the more expensive operators (can’t see what extra they provide for the extra money) and much better package and extras than some of the cheaper operators. You can’t really put a value on the personal touch. We had an absolutely fabulous trip, met some lovely people and enjoyed every minute. Howzat Travel and the Tour Managers (all fabulous) go the extra mile to make the trips really special.
Caroline & George Thompson
Thank you for making my tour to South Africa such a pleasure. I have travelled with Howzat Travel before (Sri Lanka) and find it so comforting to know that whatever I requested was fulfilled. Flights were organised, hotels, transfers, tickets, touring between matches all went as planned. I have already advised a number of friends that a) they should watch a Test Match abroad and b) travel with Howzat. Howzat has many virtues and the Tour Managers are a real strength.
However well you may organise a holiday, for me the Tour Managers are everything. And those on this trip were absolutely fantastic. From Maggie who ran around organising the Ubers in Jo’berg to David/Ross who always kept an eye out for me. But I must make particular reference to Andy who went way beyond the call of duty to help me on so many occasions. A special thank you to him. No one looks after me like Howzat Travel. I feel safe and secure on your tours and that means everything to me, considering my circumstances. A superb tour, simply couldn’t fault it.
Just wanted to say thanks to the Howzat Travel team for ensuring that the trip to SA for me, it was as smooth and efficient as it could possibly be.
Vic Marks – The Guardian
My trips to New Zealand and South Africa have shown Howzat Travel to be at their very best right from my telephone and email discussions in the UK, to face to face meetings. I do not believe that anyone could surpass my experiences – and yet you do on each occasion, for us all.
What an amazing 3 weeks over Christmas and the New Year in South Africa. As a family, we have had the real privilege over the last 6 years to travel to Australia, West Indies, Sri Lanka and South Africa with Howzat and we are often asked which was the best trip – the reality is that all have been fantastic with unique features and again this was no exception. Each of the five segments of this trip were exceptional: Christmas at the superb Tshukudu Bush Lodge with exciting game drives got the trip off to a great start; although ending in defeat the Centurion test was absorbing with a good atmosphere generated by the home crowd; New Year’s Eve in Cape Town and visiting the beautiful wine regions of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek set us up perfectly for the 2nd test; the Newlands test will live long in the memory with a great 5 days and securing the first win there in 63 years in that dramatic final session where taking 5 wickets looked unlikely at tea – celebrations continued with an excellent farewell dinner with Aggers and Boycott; our tour then concluded with a relaxing drive along the picturesque Garden Route interspersed with interesting stop-offs. As we have always found, Howzat input and assistance building the schedule was first class, with then pro-active on-the-ground support and advice available throughout the trip. The prospect of future Howzat tours watching a young, improving England cricket team is very exciting!
Nigel, Hazel, Laura and Hazel Maxfield
Congratulations on running such a successful tour for such large numbers. We requested shade, and that was provided, transfers were always on time and easy to find and with the quality of hotels provided Howzat Travel had obviously done well to negotiate such keen prices. There is a danger that attention to detail will slip with so many guests but so far no sign of that. I continue to recommend Howzat to all friends who want a cricket tour.
Lizzie was exceptional for her first tour, as were all the other Tour Managers. What can he said Howzat Travel are still simply the best in the business, often imitated never beaten!
This was our first organised cricket tour and we have never had a finer holiday. It felt like an initiation into a very special club, whose members share a passion for cricket. The atmosphere is caring without ever being overbearing and a glass very rarely falls empty! The heroics of day 5 in Cape Town were the perfect end to an unforgettable trip!
David & Susan Smith
Overall, just about perfect!
Steve & Sheena Bescoby
This was my 3rd tour with Howzat Travel and another one to remember. The booking process is excellent, everything is arranged with nothing to do but look forward to the tour! I particularly enjoyed the extra days free before the Cape Town test and the excellent tour to Hazyview and Kruger. As always the Tour Managers were great but I must mention Ross who was absolutely fantastic and great fun, he really makes our time with him enjoyable. I must say again that anyone who is thinking of doing a cricket tour need look no further than Howzat Travel, can’t wait for India next year! Thanks again for another great trip.
I would highly recommend Howzat Travel, all the stress is taken away! Great tour.
Another wonderful bespoke tour with Howzat Travel. A huge thanks from us to all the team and particularly Ian, Phil and Charlie. Nothing was too much trouble and it was the trip of a lifetime. Can’t wait to book our next tour with Howzat again.
Anne, Vanessa & Michelle Gifford
Maggi was brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us, she deserves a medal!
Another fantastic tour in a beautiful country, our 3 highlights:
1. Christmas Day at Irene, a chilled out lunch in fab surroundings.
2. New Year’s Eve at Bobo’s, a fantastic party with fellow Howzat Travellers.
3. The Kuzuko Lodge on the garden route, breath-taking.
The cricket was pretty good too!
Thank you again for a brilliant month, we look forward to our next tour!
Liz & Dave Lynch
This was my first tour. I was travelling on my own and was pleased to be made so welcome by your tour reps Karen and Steve. I also met some nice people and had many laughs.
South Africa 2019/20 was another fantastic cricket tour courtesy of Howzat Travel….thank you. From booking the holiday, throughout the trip, everything ran smoothly. The Tour Managers Carol, Nick, Des, Dave, Charlie, Bob, Maggie and Andy were excellent in their management role and fantastic company, the cricket very special and not even a spot of rain could dampen the spirits. We will be booking again soon…
Andy, Michelle & Holly Tyler
I had a great trip. The level of customer service and friendliness and approachability of the tour managers from Howzat Travel was so much better than that received on a previous trip booked with another company.
Value for money was very good and the added touches of the complimentary drinks on the first evening & the dinner with speaker Mark Butcher were very nice touches. The accommodation in both Cape Town & Johannesburg were excellent. There were enforced changes of the coach pickups at both Cape Town & Johannesburg which were dealt very efficiently by your team. While all information provided prior to the tour was very informative. I had a great time. All went smoothly.
Eight days in South Africa with six flights covering three one day internationals in three different cities takes some organising but the Howzat Travel team in UK and on tour managed it beautifully.
Absolutely loved the trip and cannot thank you all enough for everything you all done. Will definitely be booking again, hopefully the Windies tour in a couple of years’ time. I was concerned that travelling on my own I would feel Isolated but everyone on the trip was extremely friendly. We also had 2 speakers, Mark Butcher and David Boon. These were both very good!
Cannot thank Howzat enough for organizing an amazing tour, this will be our 3rd and we said we may not go another anytime soon. However we are now thinking Bangladesh, India and returning to the West Indies!!! Absolutely amazing tour from start to finish, particularly loved Cape Town and the location of the hotel was superb. We met some great people and watched some brilliant cricket, what more can you ask for?? You must be doing something right, keep up the great work!
Sarah & Gregg Matthews
Thank you for a magnificent South Africa tour. Undoubtedly one of the best I’ve been on. The tour to Vic Falls/Zim and Botswana was excellent and the accommodation at Vic Falls was first class. Two Test match wins helped, of course, but the hospitality at Cape Town and PE was also very good indeed.
Having now recovered from flitting around South Africa for six excellent weeks we thought we’d drop a line to say that we value Howzat Travel’s help very highly. We gave them plenty to do both during the booking process and, particularly, when we needed a short notice flight from Jo’burg to Cape Town following the cancellation of our booked Premier Classe train. Our experience is that all these tasks were carried out with aplomb – great customer relations! Thanks once more.
Chris & Di Wilkinson
This was our first cricket tour and our first with Howzat Travel. Can I say how much we enjoyed ourselves; the organisation behind the scenes, the quality of hotels and transfers, and the tour hosts were all first class, not to mention the enthusiasm of our fellow cricket fans. It was also a splendid idea to share the hotel in Durban with both the SA and England teams, and the match officials but I didn’t see anybody speak to the latter! It is always difficult to pick out individuals for praise because I know every team member is required to produce success. However, it would be remiss of me to fail to highlight the excellent support we received from David, Des and Carl back in the UK when a crisis arose at home that required my wife to return home on the evening of Saturday 8th February. With just a few hours notice the guys were able to find a flight back to the UK with BA; there is no finer phrase at such a time as “just leave it with me”. I am pleased to say that the crisis had a happy ending.
Robert & Jennifer Bruce
Very good at tickets at Newlands. Brilliant tour and it was so good to meet such nice people.
We just got back from South Africa and wanted to let you know what a fantastic time we had and to say thanks to you. I am sure we shall be in contact again but until then, thank you very much for all your hard work and arrangements.
We have used Howzat Travel on several occasions and once again they delivered. Would make Howzat my first choice for any future tours.
Colin & Christine Young
The evening speakers were all excellent and added to the overall experience. In particular I would name Mike Atherton, Scyld Berry and Dale Steyn.
Good advice throughout the tour was always on noticeboards and reinforced by spoken word. Despite the large numbers and therefore what must have a complicated tour to organize and run there were no noticeable problems. Any that did occur were dealt with quietly and only came to light by small talk. Throughout the tour even when numbers were very high the tour staff were always on the ball and would pass the time of day with everybody.
As always the Howzat team and organisation was top notch. This trip to South Africa was probably our best ever. Thank you for making it special.
Excellent SA Tour. Very helpful Howzat Team. Great value for money and very flexible booking so I got exactly the holiday I wanted. Well done Howzat and looking forward to Sri Lanka in March.
A brilliant tour excellently organised by Howzat! All of the arrangements including our special requests were handled with the brilliant customer service we have come to expect. All the Howzat staff were brilliant and extremely helpful. The Garden Route with Maggi was a particular highlight. Then to top it off with wins in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth was the icing on the cake.
Nigel & Jackie Crickmore
Our Tour Managers Don, David and Des were superb.
Mike & Joan Stevenson
This was our third tour with Howzat and we are never disappointed. Staff are on hand 24/7 including all add-on tours. Everybody is so friendly and we enjoy meeting old and making new friends. Roll on the next one!!
Kenny & Gay Allison
We thoroughly recommend Howzat Travel for providing personally tailored tours. The staff are highly competent, enjoy their work, are friendly and knowledgeable and will go out of their way to ensure that travellers have a great time.
Deb & Steve Castle
Maggi was her usual knowledgeable pleasant helpful self and managed the tour magnificently – once again a thoroughly enjoyable tour.
As I’ve found in the past the Tour Managers add enormously to the overall trip with their knowledge, experience and expertise. Plus a huge amount of good humour when things get challenging! I hope Howzat Travel keep up the high standard that they have set.
We had another excellent tour with Howzat – our fifth – and it was great to see some winter sunshine, catch up with old friends and see two stunning England wins over five days each. What we especially like about Howzat, as well as the friendly, experienced and efficient staff, is the flexibility to match our own personal travel plans with an organised tour. Many companies just offer you a range of ‘take it or leave it’ packages but Howzat will always go the extra mile to let you drop in and out of a tour and do your own thing, while still offering a full joined up travel agency service. Highly recommended.
Ross & Alison Midgley
We liked the flexibility offered.
Rob & Lesley Cairns
I have been with Howzat Travel many times but they just seem to get better. Cape Town was a great example of a well-run tour. Many thanks to my Tour Managers, Ross and Bob.
Thank you to Howzat Travel for giving me tickets in the shade because I burn so easily – I didn’t think they’d remember but they did!
The Tour Managers were always proactive, attentive and cheerful.
We thoroughly enjoyed it, we have enjoyed all the tours we have been on with Howzat Travel.
The hotels were both excellent, the Tour Managers were always available and the booking process was very well organised. The most enjoyable tour I have been on. Excellent. No problems.
Great way to see cricket as a single female traveller, as you are looked after without being ‘fussed over’ and made to feel very much part of the group. I have been on a number of tours now and will be booking up for next year’s Test. I have only been back three days and I have already had friends wanting Howzat Travel’s info to book up themselves!
A great time was had!
All of the Howzat Travel Tour Managers were good and pleasant and provided help and advice when asked.
A super trip! My wife didn’t go to the cricket but still loved the atmosphere in the hotel! We were very well looked after – Don Topley was first class at and around the hotel and Des was well appreciated on the match visits. The Bobo’s New Year’s Eve event and Robben Island outing were great add-ons, great result too!
This was my first tour, and certainly won’t be my last. Superb from start to finish.
We really value the flexibility to add a Howzat Travel element into a longer holiday and the bespoke nature of our arrangements. The Tour Managers are excellent.
The staff went above and beyond, the experience of getting back to the buses after the close of play was made incredibly simple by the staff directing us. The seats were brilliant, with great views and the rooms very clean and tidy.
It was a good choice by myself and my travelling partner, we would choose Howzat Travel again.
The Tour Managers are sensible, sensitive and caring, and never “in your face” – much valued!
As a first time tourist and a single traveller, I cannot recommend Howzat Travel strongly enough. Their organisation and value for money is outstanding compared to the competitors. Having spoken to other fans on alternative tours, I am delighted to have chosen Howzat for my adventure! Hope to be back on tour again soon!
Great seats and very friendly and helpful staff.
Liz Le Breuilly
Always a bit of trepidation as a solo traveller, but the Tour Managers made everything very inclusive and the entire tour group were a pleasure to be with.
Carole brilliant, always upbeat, helpful and up bright and early to see everybody, well done and Des always fun and enjoyable and likes a good laugh, Karen and Steve were great and very helpful on the Hazyview & Kruger tour.
Andrew & Lynne Turner
Enjoyed the whole thing.
We thought Australia 2017/18 was our holiday of a lifetime but South Africa and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe has just been amazing. We have got the travel bug and will continue to use Howzat Travel for future tours .Thank you so much we have had the best time.
Sue & Mick West
Fantastic Tour Managers, always available with great communication throughout.
The Howzat Travel Tour Managers were excellent throughout the trip.
Our first tour – and it was all we hoped it would be and more. The cricket first rate, the tickets and organisation excellent, Howzat Travel know exactly what they are doing and they are focussed on ensuring that the traveller’s needs are to the fore. It was relaxing, exciting, stimulating, and people-friendly – it was a quite exceptional and brilliant holiday. Surpassed our expectations – and we couldn’t recommend Howzat highly enough for all their work, organisation, efficiency and humour. Very professional with a strong empathetic human touch.
Richard & Jenny
It’s hard to comment on value for money as I have never spent so much on a holiday before nor had such an amazing time. However, it was worth it to have it all arranged for me. I could never have done all that myself and it was stress free when all I had to do was check the notice board to see what time I needed to be ready! All the Tour Managers worked really hard to make sure we had a good tour. I’m so glad I chose Howzat!
I had a great time, it was very well organised and I would definitely consider using Howzat Travel in the future.
Responses to all our email requests and telephone queries were quick and efficiently dealt with and all the information we were told was accurate, the advice we were given to any queries was good and proved to be correct. The transfers were prompt and efficient, the shaded seats were much appreciated and Tour Managers were extremely helpful and efficient. Thank you for everything you did to make this a wonderful experience which we hope to repeat. We will hopefully be travelling with Howzat Travel again soon!
John & Anne Cusworth
From initial booking to departure it is a smooth operation. I really enjoyed the holiday with Howzat Travel as usual. I’m looking forward to going with you again. Very good value for money.
My Wife and I enjoyed the break very much indeed – thanks to the planning, the company/companionship and, outstandingly, the Howzat planning and personnel. Very few aspects fell beneath Howzat’s desired standard. Of particular merit were – without exception – each and every one of the Howzat personnel.
Gordon & Margaret Smart
I was so pleased with all the arrangements that I opted to extend my tour by ten days! This also proved to be no problem.
Hope to go to the West Indies tour in 2022 and will definitely be going with Howzat Travel!
Tony & Sue Higgins
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and great to see England win finally abroad! Cricket arrangements were all excellent, the variety of day tours was good and it was good to meet up again with friends.
David & Julia Wilson
Perfect organisation, 2 Test wins at great grounds & interim stay at Vic Falls sensational. Very good accommodation & Tour Managers superb – Greatly enjoyable tour. I’m now personally 4-1 up in away wins & will hope to see you in Windies 2022 (avoiding India & Australia to keep record in place!)
All in all a very enjoyable tour.
Can’t think of anything offhand to enhance the tour, it was very well organised throughout, just a big thank you again to the three tour managers.
The office staff were very helpful with my requests for Business class travel and a 6 night stopover in Dubai.
We enjoyed the tour, and witnessed some good cricket. Our Tour Manager, Bob, was always available and helpful if you had any questions. His job was made more difficult by the abandoned match in Durban. He hastily made other plans for a City Tour. He kept us well informed.
The UK office offered a rapid response to my bespoke requirements requests and were very flexible. The Tour Managers worked very hard to deal with problems with the coaches and the weather. Well done!
Overall the tour was well organised and managed. All the arrangements worked well and none of my worries about possible mishaps materialised. Altogether we enjoyed it very much.
Our Tour Manager did everything they were asked of. Nothing was a problem. Great sense of humour too!
The hotels were all well chosen for their position. David and Des were the Tour Managers with whom we had most of our dealings and they were really excellent and hope they may do other tours in future. When the weather intervened they were on top of all the changes required.
Extremely well organised everything we wanted.
South Africa ODIs was our first cricket tour with Howzat Travel. Overall value and quality was very good. Having travelled previously before with another operator to enjoy ODIs in Australia, we were delighted with the better quality of service and attention we received from Howzat’s team in SA. Many thanks to David and Des. We will definitely book again with Howzat!
Tim & Fiona Hunt
The booking process was all good, with communication and responses very timely. I was also very pleased with the quality of the hotels on this trip – locations were first class too.
All three hotels were excellent.
Highlights were Xmas lunch at Irene, effortless elegance at Cape Grace, the Falls at VF, and modern chic at Da Vinci. All the food options were great. The entire organisation with flights, match day transfers, dinners was seamless.
Peter Loft & Marilyn Horne
Thank you Howzat Travel for putting together such a wonderful trip for us, it has been truly memorable, we are already looking forward to the next one!
Stephen & Brigitta Rathbone
We had a wonderful time enjoying the cricket and the experiences along the Garden Route. We cannot begin to comprehend the organisation that is required to sort out flights, hotels, excursions etc. and can only say a massive thank you to The Howzat Travel team for producing such a seamless product. We always knew what our next steps were and all the tour managers were helpful and available when you needed them. Special thanks must go to Don for his care and concern after my fall on Table Mountain and the extra dimension he brought to the tour with his cricketing background.
Anthony & Gill Reidy
Just back from a fantastic trip to South Africa for the 1 day series. My first trip to South Africa and the first time I have travelled with Howzat, I will be back! Thanks to all the team at Howzat Travel for organising so well a superb holiday and a big thanks to our tour Tour Managers David and Bob who looked after us really well throughout.
Thank you so much for putting on yet another great tour in South Africa and for sorting my tailored 3 day game park visit, which was superb and I would recommend to anyone interested in doing similar. Bob & Des, as usual, were excellent tour managers and nothing was too much trouble for them. A great tour, including bespoke arrangements, in an amazing country with decent cricket and like-minded fellow travellers and in the sun away from wintery England. What more can you want!
Just to let you know how much I appreciated being part of the Howzat touring party over the last two months. All the tour managers were brilliant but special praise is due to Des and Bob, who were ever present throughout the entire trip. They were fantastic tour managers and great ambassadors for Howzat. Nothing was too much trouble for them and their organisation of everything – and more – that was needed to ensure that the tour ran smoothly was seamless. They also went above and beyond what was expected of them. They were always available and quick to sort out any problems with the minimum of fuss.
Overall it was a great tour, hosted brilliantly by Des and Bob (and David). I met some old acquaintances and some new people who made the experience very enjoyable. The hotels were really nice both facility and staff wise. The talk by David Boon was brilliant and the evening with Mark Butcher was very good too.
Overall a very enjoyable tour meeting lots of familiar faces.
John & Jackie Yeomans
This tour we went to Victoria Falls and the Port Elizabeth test. Another excellent and professional tour provided by Howzat Travel, we loved every minute and will be back to see more of this beautiful country and Cape Town especially. It is hard to choose a highlight (apart from the cricket of course!) but Victoria Falls staying at the Safari Lodge was amazing and we would recommend the Amakhala Game Reserve trip. Our favourite tour so far, we loved every minute of it and England won the cricket!!
Julie & Nick Abbott
Great fun throughout.
Rob & Judy Naylor
Favourite tour so far!
We had another great tour. Helped by two wins at the cricket but also the social aspects. It’s always good to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Excellent tour organisation. We really enjoyed our trips to Victoria Falls and game parks.
Nick & Liz Morton
Great tour and nice to have the usual flexibility re flights dates etc.
First class tour to South Africa by Howzat Travel, everything and more than you would hope for.
There were many highlights and Howzat Travel again delivered well.
This was our fifth overseas tour with Howzat Travel, so that in itself tells you how much we enjoy the service they provide. The rapid response to email queries, plus the friendly and accommodating approach when on the phone gives you the impression of being a valued customer. The Tour Managers all go out of their way to ensure that everything is to your satisfaction, and they well and truly go beyond the call of duty on occasions. Our first visit to South Africa, what a beautiful country, and of course the results in the cricket helped to make it a truly memorable tour.
Kieron & Gill Weatherstone
We remain very impressed with all of the tour managers and how they work together as a team.
Ernest & Yvonne Taylor
My 16th tour with Howzat Travel I always have a great time roll on Sri Lanka.
I thought our Tour Managers, Charlie and Maggi, did an excellent job on the tour.
The tour managers at our hotel, Nick and Carole Joyce were very good hosts who got the tone just right. Well organised but amusing and relaxed which suited the situation perfectly. Gordon Bacon and some other managers chatted at the cricket and helped with information and buses etc. All the managers were helpful and good company. My wife and I enjoyed the tour and Howzat Travel would be our first choice for another cricket tour.
Thoroughly good and enjoyable holiday and thank you for overcoming the few unforeseen problems like wet weather.
Our first time with Howzat Travel… definitely not the last!
Barrie Duckett & Pat Harfield
The comprehensive information pack received a fortnight before departure was very helpful. I cannot speak to highly of the service provided by Des Newton (Cape tour and Newlands transfers) and Ross Parry (battlefields tour). Both were dependable, hardworking and very helpful guides. Perhaps most importantly, both were excellent company.
Excellent tour, good Tour Managers and staff on tour, lots friends from past tours as well as making new ones AND the match result made it a great trip!
Throughout the tour I posted pictures and updates on my f/book page and have had a lot of positive feedback from friends telling me how great it looked! The amount and quality of the excursions – especially Victoria Falls – was excellent and the Tour Managers were super. The quality of the tour was exceptional.
Second cricket tour both booked with Howzat Travel. Another fantastic tour that was well organised with excellent Tour Managers. Thank you Howzat!
John & Anne Porter
My first experience of such a tour, it was just what I needed.
Howzat Travel “deliver” what they promise and your Tour Managers are great ambassadors for the company. The sightseeing trip to Namibia exceeded our expectations in all aspects, and we appreciated the great amount of flexibility when it was needed during rain delays in PE taking people back to the hotels early if they wanted to go.
Des & Maggie Whitelock
All the staff were very helpful.
Keith Riddle & John Hutcherson
A great tour, finally seeing England win some Test Matches after 8 failures made it a real treat. Great weather, good company, excellent beer and new friends made.
Another great tour and already looking forward to the next one.
Don’t change a thing. You guys are great!
Personally I feel I got good value for money. Would I recommend Howzat Travel? Absolutely.
Our second trip with Howzat Travel. The attention to detail was appreciated and we were very grateful for the advice from Maggie & Des as “locals”.
Geoff & Sue Addy
Another great tour, good hotels and an England win.
My first tour – would tour again!
The tour was fantastic and of the standard that we expect from Howzat Travel.
We found our Tour Manager to be approachable, thorough and professional.
John & Janet Virr
This was our third tour with Howzat Travel which certainly lived up to our two previous superb experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed The Newlands Traveller Tour in Cape Town followed by the excellent Hazyview & Kruger Park experience. As with our previous tours the organisation by Howzat and the calibre and contribution of the Tour Managers were outstanding, all adding to our overall enjoyment. We also enjoyed meeting many like-minded fellow Howzat Travellers and sharing the fantastic atmosphere in Cape Town enhanced of course by England’s memorable win! Well done to all the Howzat staff – already looking forward to the next time!
Alan & Elaine Hume
This was our 6th trip overseas with Howzat Travel and our 2nd trip to Cape Town. This time we also did the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth Test. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip, South Africa is a beautiful country and once again we met old friends and made new friendships. Thanks to Howzat for their excellent and professional organisation, with sincere thanks to our tour reps, Phil, Maggi, Des and David.
David & Marion Inglis
A great tour of South Africa with excellent hotels, transfers, match tickets and Tour Managers. The only way to go and watch cricket abroad! Well done the Howzat Travel team.
Gerard & Anne McGrath
It was better than I expected, excellent over all (and we won!)
The seating arrangements were as good as they could have been, the Commodore and Victoria Falls Safari Lodge were fantastic and I liked the Fifth Avenue Beach house in Port Elizabeth. I have to say that the Victoria Falls sightseeing trip was the highlight of the whole tour! The accommodation was superb and the days at the Falls and Chobe game park will stay long in the memory.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Howzat Travel experience in Cape Town and felt very well looked after by the Tour Managers.
Mostly excellent. Weather, food, people very good. Even the result in CPT!
Des and Maggie were fantastic, always helpful and if they did not know the answer, even to a trivial question, they would by the next time you saw them. They took it from good to excellent.
We had a wonderful time.
We had a fabulous tour, two great Test matches, met old friends and made new friends – what more could you ask for?!
Jean & Alan Terry
Very good value for money. Well planned from the UK. We would definitely use Howzat Travel again.
It is easy to see a lot of research goes into your tours and everyone seems to be having a great time and enjoying the cricket, country and camaraderie.
We would have no hesitation recommending Howzat Travel, they sure are a very professional company!
