“As this was my first cricket tour and I travelled on my own from Australia, I was a little unsure what to expect. I needn’t have worried. I was impressed by all aspects, however the one factor that really stood out was the personal service. I exchanged numerous e-mails with Steve Eatherington in the pre-booking phase. All were replied to punctually and helpfully. I appreciated the meet and greet at The Cullinan on arrival from a 24 hour journey, and the following evening the welcome drinks, where Steve spent two hours introducing the company and in general being a very welcoming host. The tour managers in the Cullinan were very good, I enjoyed Des’ brief commentaries and humour each day (and am currently enjoying reading his book) and Charlie did a very good job of mixing with us in the evening. I met some lovely people whose company I enjoyed thoroughly, both at the cricket and in the evenings. The farewell dinner with Geoffrey Boycott was an excellent way to end the tour. And, of course, the highlights were witnessing the historic innings and partnership of Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow, Hashim Amla’s double-hundred and the first century for South Africa by a black African, Temba Bavuma. All in all it was a special trip, and I hope to have another in the near future with Howzat Travel.”
    Peter Catterson

    “We enjoyed all aspects of the tour. We were especially impressed by the inclusion of last minute tours to Soweto and the South African Golf Open to compensate for the loss of two days cricket in Johannesburg. Dean Allen, Paul Farbrace and Michael Vaughan gave excellent presentations and answered questions honestly.”
    Rod Thrippleton & Stella Whitehead

    “I am someone who rarely contributes to any reviews whatsoever. With my experience on the Howzat tour I am delighted to contribute my opinion. After going through our due diligence we decided to travel with Howzat to Australia two years ago. On this occasion, we did not consider any other tour operator. Our past experience with Howzat Travel was the sole reason for booking with them again for South Africa. Our decision proved to be an excellent one. From the moment that we confirmed our reservation to the moment we departed the tour we were in excellent hands. I am in no doubt that each tour manager works long hours to ensure that each and every customer receives the best possible service and experience. The tour managers are friendly and approachable, professional and responsive. At the same time, they are all sociable and help to make the whole tour fun and enjoyable. I met Karen, Steve, David and Des in Australia and knew that we were in the very best of care as soon as I saw they were all in attendance in South Africa. They are a credit to the organisation. The organisation of the tickets for the cricket matches, transfers to and from the ground and hotel as well as internal flights were all managed superbly. The mishaps on the part of the taxi company were addressed and resolved by Howzat Travel with minimal fuss and maximum efficiency. Thank you. It was a real pleasure to have travelled with Howzat for my South Africa tour which was hugely enjoyable and memorable in every respect. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Howzat Travel to anyone for their utmost care and quality of service to every customer in every respect.”
    Graham Ellinor

    “Because of some family issues I had to change travel plans considerably. Carl and the team were faultless in the way this was dealt with and in the results achieved. Excellent tour with Howzat Travel.”
    Rob Turton

    “The Howzat directors, direct employees and regular tour managers were excellent as usual. The ever increasing number of clients is testimony to the very good job Howzat Travel do. Job well done. Congratulations.”
    Geoff Marshall

    “In the office everyone was very helpful in ensuring we got the right package for us, which was really great and put us at ease. This was our first overseas cricket tour and it made both of eager to go again! I felt well looked after and well guided by Howzat Travel. Also the help when we made our enquiries was second to none, Howzat could not have been more helpful in making it all so easy.”
    Stuart & Dawn Draper

    “Our tour managers looked after us very well. Charlie was excellent as a young man, Des was entertaining as ever and Maggi and Carl made an effort to come and say goodbye – they weren’t even in our hotel! Howzat organised great seats – the best in the ground. We had a super holiday, made great friends, good cricket and the Victoria Falls were beautiful.”
    Jean & Alan Terry

    “A truly great tour – absolutely perfect – could not find fault with it at all. The tour leaders who we befriended during our stay and looked after us fantastically well. These were Des (aka Dynamite Des or the Archbishop), Charlie (Captain Darling), Dave (no nickname but a wonderful host) and last but by no means least Maggi. They could not do enough for us and lead us astray on more than one occasion, leading to thick heads but great memories. Howzat Travel have a great team and provide a top quality service. All the very best and I wish I had stayed on longer now! As regular independent cricket travellers, you may have persuaded myself and Adam to revise our tour strategy in the future!”
    Martin Sheppard

    “Our tour managers, Gordon and Garth, were very friendly and professional. Very good blokes. The tour provided what I expected, it was very enjoyable.”
    Tim Breislin

    “We have found that Howzat have the knack of flexing arrangements to suit individual needs. That personal touch is excellent as is the support and availability of tour managers. This is our third trip with Howzat and we will certainly use them again.”
    Mark & Ann Bishop

    “From the initial enquiry to the end of the tour the Howzat Travel team were magnificent and obviously value greatly their customers. We will not hesitate to use them again and will defiantly recommend them to friends. Their success is good to see and may they go from strength to strength.”
    Sue & Steve Knight

    “Everything was run like clockwork all I had to do was choose what to have for breakfast!”
    Phil Goddard

    “As first time ‘Howzat Travellers’ we had a fantastic time, a great group of people, brilliant guides, they all made us feel very welcome. We are waiting with great anticipation to the next tour!”
    Ian & Sally Warfield

    “Thanks very much for another great tour. Everything was incredibly smooth, good hotels, good transfers… all good!”
    Paul Newman, Daily Mail cricket correspondent

    “We appreciate how much hard work went on behind the scenes in booking hotels & arranging such a great choice of optional extra trips & using local tour guides. Much appreciated & thanks to all at Howzat Travel!”
    John & Deirdre Drelaud

    “Sitting here listening to the rain bounce off the window has reaffirmed to me (if I needed it) just how great a trip it was to South Africa in all aspects. This was in no small part due to the continual excellent service we got from all of the Howzat staff; Karen and Steve in Cape Town, Ian and Charlie in Victoria Falls, and the infamous Des and David in Jo’Burg. I’m really grateful to all of you; from arranging the tickets, transports etc to the smaller things like trips, excursions and invitations for a beer. It’s left us with great memories that are too many to list. Having travelled to the Ashes two years ago I really didn’t want to draw comparisons but both have been absolutely great. I didn’t look at any other company for this trip and have no reason to change that in the future. To establish brand loyalty so quickly is something the company should be really proud of; this was just my 2nd tour and talking to the other travellers I know that many come time and time again. I’ve got my eye on New Zealand and Sri Lanka in 2018 (may be the Ashes next year if I get the urge). I’ll definitely be back with Howzat Travel again in the near future. #TeamHowzat”
    Anthony Joy

    “We have used Howzat for three tours now and would not think about going to another company, it is testament to how good the company is when we meet up with travellers that we have met on previous tours with Howzat Travel.”
    Bob Pinkney, Derek Hubbard, Brian Thaxton & Trevor Northfield

    “Thank you Howzat Travel. Massive thank you to all the tour managers and members of the office team (and Harry, the junior tour manager), all did a great job, all great friends. This was our third tour and they just keep getting better (and the first tour got 10/10!). We had the time of our lives and we will not forget it. Excellent cricket in a beautiful country alongside great friends. See you again very soon.”
    Andy, Michelle, Holly & Harry Tyler

    “This was my first tour, and I cannot recommend Howzat Travel highly enough. From the moment I made my initial enquiry I was made to feel part of the Howzat ‘family’. Cape Town is a beautiful city, and the Test match was a great experience. All the Howzat Tour managers (especially Garth, Gordon and Maggi) were fantastic, and made everyone welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I’ve got tons of memories of great days and wonderful nights, met some brilliant people, and I’ve been flooding Facebook with photos since I’ve been back! Adjusting to reality back in England has been made much easier by being able to tell my friends about how amazing the tour was. So many highlights. Looking forward to going on another Howzat Travel tour in the future – no idea where or when but this tour has definitely given me a taste for it. Thanks so much for everything!”
    Robin Broster

    “We can un-reservedly advocate Howzat for service and quality. It was a trip of a lifetime, we had a wonderful time and will work hard to try to join them again in India, Australia or elsewhere!”
    John & Jane Wheeler

    “The pre-departure booking arrangements were very straightforward, we appreciated very much the honesty when Howzat Travel got a better flight discount and reduced our tour costs by £400 per person. The information received was very comprehensive and accurate, our match tickets were the best in the house with a very comfortable hotel. Our tour managers were fantastic. We were delighted with the value of the tour until the second last day, where the icing on the cake was the farewell dinner, super venue, super meal, a free bar and Geoff Boycott. Howzat really know how to add value. For all of our future tours we wouldn’t consider looking elsewhere, we were most impressed with all aspects of our package. Apart from all the practical elements of the tour which were totally fantastic. The side that I have not yet broached is the people side of your organisation, which is a family and friendly organisation, who really want to make a difference for their customers. This was very much evident in talking to members of your company and was very much appreciated. Thank you Howzat Travel.”
    Ian Wood

    “In a few words, I thank Howzat Travel for organising my trip so well. I appreciate the planning and management that went into it – also the care that the Howzat team took over all arrangements. I can’t think of one serious omission throughout the four weeks. Thank you to the Howzat Travel team.”
    Gordon Smart

    “The friendship with the Directors and tour managers, which began in Australia, grew in Melton Mowbray and was strengthened in SA, means we regard the Howzat team as part of our extended family. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done to make sure all have a comfortable and enjoyable time. My wife was ill in Durban, which necessitated calling a doctor to the hotel. David quickly contacted someone who was excellent in ensuring my wife received the treatment to enable her to make a swift recovery and enjoy the rest of the tour – Thanks David. Thank you Maggie for booking restaurants and Des …for just being Des! And well done Charlie. I cannot speak highly enough of the people in Howzat. Ian & Steve lead from the front and I consider them friends who I trust implicitly. This was my wife’s first tour and she is not a cricket fan but she was very impressed with everything on the tour. Howzat have an excellent team and we look forward to the next tour. Thank you!”
    Bryan Woodford

    “We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Not having done such a tour before, we were unsure what to expect. We need not have worried – in every aspect, you did your very best to make sure that we had a comfortable and enjoyable time. Excellent organisation, helpful tour managers, a generally very good itinerary – and you couldn’t do anything about the one day of boring cricket! We are very grateful for a special experience!”
    Simon & Heather Evers

    “In the space of two years we have been fortunate as a family, to complete three amazing tours with Howzat Travel – Australia, West Indies and now South Africa. We loved every minute in Cape Town, enjoying a great city, excellent trips, fantastic food and drink and being privileged to watch the historic Ben Stokes and Temba Bavuma innings at Newlands. Once again all the arrangements worked like clockwork. The genuine interest and enthusiasm of the staff and tour managers on the ground throughout is something that is really unique and made the tour so special. Thank you to all the team for a memorable 10 days!”
    Nigel, Hazel, Laura & Graham Maxfield

    “Howzat Travel organised such a marvellous trip. We returned safely early this morning after two fantastic weeks in Cape Town and Victoria Falls. I think it highly likely that we shall be coming with you again in future. Everything went very well and arrangements for the Falls were particularly enjoyable. We also enjoyed our trip round Johannesburg. Thanks again for your efforts.”
    Brigid Brooker

    “As I have now come to expect this was another excellent tour. All the required pre departure information was sent out in plenty of time, very clear and concise and trouble free. The shirt and bag were a nice touch. As normal the tour managers were great, with special mention as always to Des and Linda. Maggie was also good buzzing about trying to do a million jobs and I was very impressed with Charlie who did an amazing job. The seats at the cricket were great, and the transfers were faultless as always. Another successful tour with Howzat and would never go on a tour with another company #simplythebest #ifcarlsbergdidcrickettours”
    Paul Humphreys

    “We were always looked after and informed of changes from initial enquiry to flying back home. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Carl and Phil never seemed to stop working, Maggi and Des were of great help in local knowledge of Cape Town and are great assets to the team. Looking forward to more tours away in the future!”
    James Cherry

    “I had a wonderful holiday from beginning to end from all the staff at Howzat to the many people I spoke to whilst in South Africa. I will certainly be travelling with Howzat again!”
    Sheila McQueeney

    “If you ring the Howzat Travel office, a person answers; and you get a speedy and thoughtful personal response. I cannot stress enough how important this is. The tour managers accompanied this by being calm, organised and present throughout. The personal nature of the service, from booking to departure is really appreciated.”
    John Waller

    “Another fantastic tour with Howzat, brilliantly put together for such a large group in Cape Town. We had a wonderful time. The Tour Managers are such nice people and so helpful. The tour was excellent value for money and would we would not hesitate for a moment to repeat a tour with Howzat. ”
    Terry & Sue Cunningham

    “Out of 15 tours abroad watching England this rates as one of the best from all aspects. We look forward to carrying on our relationship with Howzat Travel in the future.”
    Richard & Annette Owen

    “From the start Howzat Travel offered very helpful customer service whenever we had a query, very prompt replies. When on the ground the hospitality arrangements exceeded expectations and the hotel was excellently located. The whole tour exceeded expectation. We have not considered doing a cricket tour in the past, but we certainly shall do in the future.”
    Mervyn Brooker

    “The tour was well planned and good value for money, many thanks Howzat. I will certainly travel with you again!”
    Jeff Moore

    “Cannot speak highly enough of Howzat Travel, they exceeded my expectations and we will travel with them again, most definitely!”
    Shirley Thomas

    “Exceptional service. Had a fabulous time thanks to Carl, Phil and Maggie. Would recommend Howzat Travel for future trips. Well done and thank you for a great tour!”
    Neil & Karon Grayson

    “The tour was well organised. We were impressed by the overall standard of the accommodation and the location of the seats at the grounds. We would certainly consider Howzat Travel for our next cricket tour.”

    “Excellent tour! Well organised, with lots of fun and laughter. A shame about the result in the ODIs!”
    Bill Wardrop

    “This was our first cricket tour abroad and therefore first trip with Howzat Travel. I selected Howzat because their enthusiasm for cricket and dedication to customer satisfaction came over loud and clear on their website. I wasn’t disappointed. Everything worked wonderfully well including the three day bespoke add-on to our trip which Howzat organised for us. The very helpful tour managers were always on hand and were always willing to go the extra mile to make our stay special. I think overall this is right up there alongside the best holidays we have ever had.”

    “The team in the office were very pro-active and helpful, even when an error was spotted (due to a change in what days we wanted to fly), it was dealt with very efficiently. Good communication and very good pre-tour info pack. We had very good seats at the cricket, and our tour manager, Carl, was very helpful in getting us an end of row seat to help my elderly father, even though such seats must have been in very high demand. Carl, Phil, Maggi and Des were visible, available and knowledgeable, unlike some other operators. Always happy to help or just chat – very nice to deal with. Whatever price you pay for something, you expect service to match – Carl and the team have certainly done that we’re very happy. A great experience from start to finish.”
    Chris Noakes

    “An excellent tour! Nothing was too much trouble for all the tour manages and staff. A series win with good group of fellow travellers.”
    Neil Draper

    “South Africa is the first time I have been with Howzat Travel and everything was really good. I will definitely travel with Howzat again.”
    Gary Brown

    “Another mind blowing tour. The accommodation and staff were again excellent. It was great to see so many familiar faces again. I would highly recommended Howzat Travel to anyone thinking about doing a cricket tour.”
    Mike Burke

    “We would both like to thank the Howzat Travel Team for a truly wonderful and memorable holiday. We have never undertaken a holiday like that before (always the odd 7-10 days in Europe) so South Africa was really different. We loved Cape Town and the surrounding area – it would be nice to return there one day to discover more! Now that we are committed England cricket fans, please keep us advised on future trips!”
    Stephen & Brigitta Rathbone

    “It certainly was a shock to the system arriving at Manchester airport on a cold, wet Saturday morning. Apart from an initial problem, which was professionally dealt with by Howzat Travel, it was a great trip and without doubt the best I have been on so far. Flights, accommodation, seating, transfers etc. were all good and the tour managers at both Durban and Cape Town provided an excellent service. Howzat have a good business which provides good service and value for money. I look forward to meeting up with the Howzat team on a future trip.”
    Roy Steele

    “We really enjoyed our first Howzat Travel experience. We had a wonderful time throughout – great people, great places, great accommodation and great cricket! Howzat have a fantastic team. Here’s to the next one!”
    Chris & Amanda Truby

    “This was my first trip with Howzat Travel. From booking to the tour itself everything was generally efficient and well-organised. We were looked after superbly by our tour guide, Des Newton. The hotels were of an excellent standard and the whole experience was most enjoyable. Having travelled independently to England test matches in the past, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of having everything organised within the one package and I would definitely travel with Howzat again.”

    “Our best tour yet, South Africa is a stunning country and such good value (so many steaks eaten!) Logistics worked brilliantly as usual and we had no worries at all in the 3 weeks we were there. A great holiday!”
    Liz & Dave Lynch

    “Quick and efficient responses to all emails – as usual! Provided the necessary information as well as useful data on the places we were visiting and the grounds and seating. As usual the tour managers were approachable and helpful and they always make every effort to ensure we all have a good time and no-one is left alone – unless they want to be! They are friends now – not just tour managers. Special mention for Nick who sorted out the issue with the coach to Hazyview and always ensured we had adequate comfort stops en-route. Once again we had a lovely time. Christmas lunch was excellent – great location – Maggi was great at ensuring no-one was left to sit on their own. We travel with Howat because we get personalised, prompt, friendly and efficient service – Howzat Travel – the travel company you can trust to deliver.”
    Des & Maggie Whitelock

    “Our tour managers were solid and approachable and the farewell dinner was really good, Mr Boycott was his usual entertaining self.”
    Graham Hillier

    “I wasn’t sure what to expect on my first England tour but our tour managers were exceptional. Everything was clearly explained and everyone was welcome on the nights out. Howzat travel sorted very good seats and freedom to swap seats with others on the tour party so those of us who wanted some sun could swap with someone who wanted shade. Having looked around beforehand, other tour operators charge twice as much for no added value. I couldn’t be happier with my first England tour!”
    Mark Goddard

    “The booking and arrangements for the trip were straight forward and easy to deal with. I enjoyed my tour.”
    Charles Hewitt

    “My 1st trip on cricket tour – Howzat were excellent, certainly convinced me to do it again and I am looking forward to going to India!”
    Phil Beaumont

    “Our tour of South Africa was exactly what we have come to expect, well organised, considerate and attentive staff and a chance to catch up with friends. A great five weeks where even the cricket did not let us down!”
    Malcolm & Rosemary Welborn

    “I had a fantastic tour with good friends – saw some fantastic sights and great cricket. Well done Howzat Travel!”
    Jim Nixon

    “The pre-tour information was hassle free. All info received was clear. Our tour manager, Bob, was very helpful when we had a problem with our room in Cape Town. Genrally all the other tour managers were all very friendly and sociable. We also enjoyed New Year at Kelvin Grove and the organised trip to the Winelands, Cape Point, Soweto. You may have secured our business for the future!”
    Nick & Liz Morton

    “Howzat Travel do an exceptionally good job, very professional, very enjoyable and achieve a personal touch at the same time.”
    Stuart Finney

    “All tour managers I had were very good. I loved the whole tour!”
    Linda Glover

    “A really well organised trip.”

    “Howzat always answered our emails promptly and the information provided was always clear and easy to understand. Our tour managers at the Protea Sea Point, Gordon and Garth were amazing – always on hand to answer questions and deal with any problems. It was great how the other reps would always stop to talk to you at the cricket as well. Overall the tour was very good value. The trips that were included were great – many thanks for organizing the shark diving for us. The farewell dinner was fantastic – so many great things included in the price! We would recommend Howzat to anyone wanting to go on a cricket tour. Not only are these trips well organised but if ours was anything to go by it is a friendly, fun experience. We loved our time in Cape Town.”
    Ross & Kathryn Blore

    “Already looking forward to my next trip with Howzat Travel!”
    Barry Jenkins

    “Another enjoyable tour with Howzat Travel. I met up with some ‘old’ acquaintances and hopefully made some new ones. The Battlefields tour was something totally different. We were well looked after by Dave Stewart, Maggi and Charlie. Also nice to meet up with Linda again. The hotels were great and the Christmas Day buffet lunch brilliant, with Mike Procter a splendid speaker. The food was good, costs unbelievable and cricket most exciting especially with England winning. I can thoroughly recommend Howzat travel again as I have done so often in the past.”
    Eric Lummis

    “I really enjoyed myself at both Tests and the scenery was magnificent. Please put my name down for the India trip l will definitely be going with Howzat!”
    Denis Maher

    “The whole trip was massively enjoyable and something I will also look back to with fond memories. The Howzat Travel team always did their best to make sure any issues were addressed promptly. In my case Des, Dave and Charlie were always helpful and approachable.”
    Phil Cork

    “Thank you for an excellent and very well organised trip. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both at the cricket and on the subsequent Garden Route and Lallibela tour (on which Maggi was outstanding) and have already registered to get details for India later in the year!”
    Ross Midgley

    “May I thank the Howzat Travel team for an unforgettable tour in Cape Town. Please send my special thanks to Gordon and Garth at Sea Point, without them I don’t think we would have had so much fun. The Red Tour made a small presentation to them as a special thanks for being such great ambassadors for Howzat Travel. Howzat definitely know how to choose great tour managers. I will recommend Howzat in the future and look forward to seeing you all at next test match.”
    Deb Heslington

    “Great seats at the cricket, Des, David and Steve couldn’t do enough to help, very impressive. The wine tasting was a great day out and the farewell dinner was an absolute treat. Great meal, free wine and Geoffrey Boycott, a cricket fans best guest!”
    Vince Curren

    “This was my first time with Howzat Travel, having used other companies and will definitely repeat with Howzat. Amazing fun!”
    Andy Gagen

    “This was my first tour and I can only say I had a wonderful trip. Every aspect was perfect and what really made it was the great people that I met and the experiences we shared. The whole package was excellent and my thanks to Howzat Travel. Fantastic Tour – fabulous weather and a wonderful group of tourists, well worth every penny. Looking forward to my next one.”
    Doug Johns

    “We are by nature independent travellers, even for cricket tours. However, having never visited South Africa before, we decided to go as part of a group for this particular trip. We are very likely to do so again – Howzat Travel were efficient without being intrusive. All the arrangements worked like clockwork and, surrounded as we were by cricket lovers, were able to make some new friends – but always at our own pace: we never felt ‘herded’ at any stage. An excellent holiday, thank you Howzat Travel!”
    Alison Midgley

    “Keep up the good work!”
    Barrie & Sandra Rose

    “Our tour managers, Gordon and Garth at SeaPoint were nothing short of fantastic, they fully embraced their roles, to such an extent that those of us with them at SeaPoint held a collection to show our appreciation for their efforts, much deserved. Then on the Garden Route tour, we had the lovely Maggie, who again, was excellent, so knowledgeable and so engaging with everyone, always available, never seemingly at rest! All were excellent, and represented Howzat as well as a company could wish for. Spent a fair amount of time with Linda at the cricket, again, such a lovely, warm, chatty lady, made us and everyone feel welcome, and part of the whole thing. All were great choices as Tour Managers. Having now been on six cricket tours of differing nature, some off our own back and some with other tour companies, we both feel that Howzat were the best tour company yet. Howzat Travel would be our tour company of choice if we are to use a cricket tour company again.”
    Darren & Susanna Auty

    “Another wonderful tour from Howzat, my third. The standard never slips.”
    Anne Hare-Brown

    “A truly wonderful tour that will live in my memory forever. Cape Town with the backdrop of Table Mountain was absolutely fantastic and the beaches were wonderful and picturesque. Victoria Falls was absolutely stunning and the surrounding scenery was superb. The game drives were brilliant and we managed to see the big five. Johannesburg was more built up but had a magnificent shopping mall opposite our hotel. It was also brilliant to meet old friends, make new friends and have a thoroughly great time with all. A big thank you to all the staff at Howzat Travel for making this tour so memorable and the icing on the cake was witnessing an England win on away soil with some exceptional performances. Taking everything into consideration, this tour like others before it, easily exceeded all my expectations.”
    Colin Charman

    “The three organised guest speaker evenings (Dean Allen, Paul Farbrace and Michael Vaughan) were all outstanding. Congratulations particularly to David for his compere duties. Also, many thanks to Ian on remembering to replace Di’s Howzat sack. How he remembered our request made during the initial mayhem of the Farewell Dinner is a mystery to us! As seasoned cricket followers, this was our first time with Howzat. The tour provided the right balance of freedom and choice in-between the cricket matches. The tour managers were very good, we had no problems and so did not have to tax their professionalism! However, David, Des and Allan were always on the ball and good company.”
    Peter & Di Whalley

    “We found the tour managers helpful and friendly and the team in the office were interested in us personally, which made the attention to detail excellent. The celebrity guest at the end of tour dinner was a bonus!”
    Roger & Vivienne Hawes

    “Everything was arranged to perfection! Our tour managers were outstanding, our location was brilliant and the all-round experience was superb. The tour, in my opinion, could be no better. It was my first with Howzat Travel and certainly won’t be my last! Thanks to all involved.”
    Paul Davies

    “Both of my tour managers were fantastic. As a single traveller I was grateful for their efforts to get everyone together each evening. As a result I was never alone and had a great time!”
    Susan Thistlethwaite

    “Fantastic trip, the staff are very personable, friendly and visible. Would definitely use the company again. Tribute to the quality of the tour that I can’t find anything to write in the changes to improve box!”
    Matty Waller

    “Our tour managers were very friendly and helpful throughout, always dealt with all requests without fuss. The farewell dinner was also a classy touch to be included in the cost of the tour, especially with the calibre of the guest speaker Mr Geoffrey Boycott no less! We would like to thank the Howzat Travel staff for all their helpfulness and ability to meet our requests both prior to and during the tour. Well Done!”
    Gary & Nicola Speight

    “First class value for money – an organisation that clearly knows how to organise trips of this kind. I would certainly consider booking with Howzat Travel again.”
    Stan Tucker

    “My fourth tour with Howzat Travel and as usual a great well organised trip, with excellent tour managers. The best value for money tours in cricket!”
    Garry Clarke

    “Our tour manager was excellent and one felt they would go to great lengths to deal with guests issues.”
    Peter Stefanini

    “This was our first trip with Howzat. From our first contact with them when enquiring about the trip they made us feel important. They did everything they could to ensure that we had a great holiday. We will definitely go with Howzat again.”
    Clive & Ann Parrish

    “I was very impressed with the attention and care given by the tour managers in both locations. Charlie and Maggi in Durban were very personable; Linda in Cape Town was excellent, making sure the whole group was looked after and focusing on details such as arranging for us to keep our rooms for longer on the last day. I was very impressed by Howzat Travel. Would certainly travel with them again.”

    “Howzat Travel are a very well organised customer focused organisation and their aim is to make sure everyone has a good time. Which I definitely did!”
    Michael Clapham

    “Having just done the Newlands New Year Tour, my first tour with Howzat Travel, it has to rank as one of my best. Everything about the trip was superb. I’ll definitely be booking again. Many thanks! ”
    Andy Heather

    “Both of our tour managers were excellent. They were always around to answer any questions we had and Carl was very good to help us check in for our return flight. Having everything arranged for us, including some great excursions, was worth every penny. It had a great balance between watching cricket and seeing the main attractions. My husband is the cricket fan but there was plenty to do for us not so dedicated cricket fans!”
    Elizabeth Cowlam

    “Best organised cricket tour we have ever been on. A very good farewell dinner.”
    Peter & Eileen Fisher

    “A second great trip with howzat. Very pleased! 10/10”

    “Overall, an excellent holiday where everyone got on with everyone else. Encouragement was made by the tour managers to make sure that people who travelled on their own weren’t left out of things. Particular praise should be given for the end of Cape Town tour dinner which was excellent with plenty of food and wine. A certain Mr Boycott was great entertainment and was in good form. Guest appearances like this make Howzat Travel tours that bit extra special.”
    Philip Sharratt

    “I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Howzat to any friends or family. The tour was conducted in a very personable manner which made one feel valued. The tour was very good value for money, along with a very good personal & customised approach from Howzat. The tour managers were very approachable, communicative and helpful in attending to any matters. The functions were most enjoyable ranging from the welcome drinks evening, Christmas lunch, Q&A with Paul Farbrace & the farewell dinner at the Kelvin Grove.”

    “Our first time with Howzat Travel and our first time in Cape Town – we had an amazing time. Everything was organised by Howzat Travel so efficiently we didn’t have to worry about a thing from the time we stepped off the plane in Cape Town. The trips we went on were excellent and we had great tickets at the test match. The memories we have of our time in Cape Town will stay with us forever.”
    Pauline & Duncan Russell

    “The set up was just about perfect. Arrive. Two days of organised tours, two days of doing my own thing, five days of cricket (at least one of which was outstanding). A beautiful city with an amazing favourable exchange rate. My best holiday ever! Thanks everyone at Howzat Travel.”

    Heather Wright

    “A thoroughly enjoyable 3 weeks. Everything seemed to go very smoothly, the tour was well organised and efficient and I felt safe and comfortable throughout. The “extra-curricular” activities must have taken a lot of organising but everyone seemed to have a great time. It was especially good to have the directors of the company with us.”
    Marjorie Fritz & Peter Whatling

    “Overall an excellent first trip with Howzat. Having travelled independently to Australia it was well worth the premium to have everything organised & tailored for us.”

    “Thanks to the Howzat Travel team for such a superbly organised tour.”

    “The Never@Home was suited to our tour manager, Ross who did a good job at bonding the group together. We did things as a group such as visiting a local cricket club. The farewell dinner was very good, excellent venue, lovely food and Geoff Boycott was a brilliant speaker. All the staff were very helpful and I had an excellent tour.”
    Paul Williams
