“This was our first tour with Howzat Travel and we will have no hesitation with booking again. The organisation and communication were first class from start to finish and our tour managers took a genuine interest in our enjoyment of the tour. Steve, Karen and Bob, with the support of the excellent local agents, did a magnificent job and were very adaptable to everyone’s preferences, especially given the level of weather-related disruption. As well as seeing our boys win the series, they arranged some fascinating tours which greatly enhanced our experience of Sri Lanka and gave lots of useful tips such as negotiating use of tuk tuks which was brilliant fun. Thinking about it? Just do it, you won’t regret it!”
    Penny & James Huggard

    ‘A really good trip. As a single female travelling alone, I felt very welcomed and looked after.’
    Elaine Roberts

    ‘Overall a brilliant tour. Excellent Tour Managers and I came away believing that Howzat Travel did everything possible to make me feel as an individual and as part of a group that we were valued tour members.’
    Chris Hardaker

    “Thank you for organising a fantastic three weeks in Sri Lanka. We enjoyed every minute. All the hotels were fantastic and, as you can imagine, we made full use of the ‘facilities’…even the gym (once)!! The food was excellent, the country is beautiful, and I thoroughly enjoyed the site seeing, even the drives between locations. The elephant orphanage was awesome, and the spice garden was educationally enlightening. Steve, Karen and Bob were great company and all over their jobs. Their organisation of match transfers and hotel moves was spot on. I felt for them when it rained at the cricket because some wanted to leave and others (me) wanted to hang on. They accommodated everyone really well. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. The evening with Darren Gough was a highlight, with good food and drink, coupled with an excellent and funny talk. Once again you have provided us with memories we will never forget. Thank you all.”
    Andy & Michelle Tyler

    ‘Best one yet – I’ve recommended Howzat Travel to several independent travellers.’
    Gillie Fisher

    ‘Our first international cricket tour. Howzat ensured it was a resounding success and we really cannot think how anything could have been done better. The England team also played their part! Can’t wait for the next tour with Howzat: and many more after that hopefully. Thank you.’
    Karen & Phil Wood

    ‘I shop around and know what value for money Howzat Travel offer. The pre-tour information was faultless, clear, precise and accurate and if anything, the hotels on the ‘Red tour’ were undersold! Both were excellent. A brilliant, memorable tour with so many highlights. So many smiling people, charming and thoughtful. Thank you for organising such a wonderful tour.’
    Clive Pickles

    ‘I have just returned from a fantastic two tests in Sri Lanka organised by yourselves and I have has an incredibly enjoyable  experience-probably my favourite tour so far. Aside from the cricket itself ( for which I cant give you credit!) I found the quality of the hotels that you chose to be exemplary and all the transport worked like clockwork. I thought that David Stewart was an exemplary Tour Manager. He took time to establish our needs ,and checked in on us on a regular basis without being intrusive in any way. Anyway thanks again for organising such a great trip to such a lovely country populated by such universally friendly people!’
    Ian Mintram

    “Good quality, comprehensive pre-tour information. Very enjoyable and well organised itinerary – good tour group, well led by the managers. First ever police escort to a match was a bonus and a unique experience …. especially the first attempt!”
    Adrian & Jane Mitchell

    ‘Rolls Royce of an organisation, well done!’
    Richard Winter

    ‘Tour Managers had some tricky situations to deal with and from what I saw they handled it with great empathy, patience and professionalism. A really enjoyable trip, very well organised. The whole group were very convivial.’
    Nigel Lord

    ‘Great from start to finish! Everything was very well organised. You didn’t have to worry about a thing. Office staff and Tour Managers on the ground were fantastic. Looking forward to my next trip already. What can I say, two weeks in the sun watching cricket for a great price. Excellent.’
    Phil Lambert

    ‘A most enjoyable trip – very impressed with Howzat Travel.’
    Cliff Richards

    ‘This was our fourth Howzat tour and a great opportunity to meet up with old friends and to make some new ones. Sri Lanka is a fabulous country and we were lucky enough to have ten days to explore between the ODIs and the Tests. We told Howzat Travel what we wanted to see and they worked with their excellent local partners to put together a brilliant itinerary. Everything worked flawlessly and our driver was a delight. We were very impressed with the accommodation and the Tour Managers, not to mention our first overseas series win! We will certainly travel again with Howzat and will encourage friends to join us.’
    Ross & Alison Midgley

    “Thanks guys for another wonderful tour. Without the amazing logistical talents at Howzat, this rain affected ODI series would have been a disaster. It is credit to your organisation that we all still had a fantastic time despite the constant uncertainty and Monsoon conditions.”
    Anne Gifford

    ‘We had the most wonderful time. Howzat are a highly organised company who obviously only employ the very best tour managers. It’s was our second trip with Howzat – can’t wait for the third!’
    Lindsay & Chris Thorne

    ‘Fabulous trip, very well organised as usual and great hotels.’
    Terry & Margaret Bigby

    ‘All the tour information was very well explained and I found the staff extremely helpful. I felt very well looked after throughout the tour.’
    Paul Krendel

    “Always well researched tours, very professional and efficient. Howzat Travel always manage to accommodate our bespoke requests when we cannot make the set itinerary which we appreciate very much. We can guarantee you will be well looked after and you will meet some lovely fellow cricket fans. Looking forward to travelling with you again soon.”
    Nick & Julie Abbott

    ‘It was an exceptionally enjoyable tour. Sri Lanka is a magnificent country to visit, the people are friendly and hospitable, the hotels were fabulous, the cricket was wonderful and Howzat organised everything in splendid fashion.’
    Andrew Wright

    ‘A great tour, well organised with attentive and personal Tour Managers and a lovely group of people.’
    Malcolm & Rosemary Welborne

    ‘So looking forward to the West Indies tour we have already booked and seeing Howzat people again. We would now not even look at another cricket tour operator, we are so delighted with what we have got!’
    Terry & Sue Cunningham

    ‘I don’t think anything could be done better from our point of view. The end of tour farewell dinner with a cricketing celebrity is the icing on a very enjoyable cake! We would like to thank everyone at Howzat for a wonderful holiday especially Nick & Carole for their excellent hosting. Also thanks to the England team for breaking our ‘away’ test duck at the fifth attempt!’
    Gary Speight

    ‘All the Tour Managers were helpful, friendly and available. Overall the tour was brilliant. Will sign up again when timing and circumstances permit.’
    Norman Smyth

    “The staff in the office were brilliant. Answered emails promptly – don’t know when they got time to sleep!! Nothing too much trouble and gave sound advice when needed. This was continued on the ground by the fantastic Tour Managers. Friendly, helpful, good knowledge of the local area e.g. where to eat, how much to pay for Tuk Tuk ride, things to be aware of. Nothing was too much trouble, they organised a birthday cake for my husband’s birthday, which fell on the quiz night they had arranged. He was overwhelmed by it! They organised a 20% discount at the Columbo hotel, which was great. They were always available to help with any problems or just to have a chat. They all had a good sense of humour and made the whole trip a pleasure. This is the first time we have used Howzat travel but hopefully it won’t be the last. From initial contact regarding the tour to when we arrived home it was excellent, and excellent value for money! We have made so many new friends whom we hope to visit during the cricket season. Thank you Howzat travel for a wonderful holiday.”
    Kathryn & Geoff Hall

    ‘One of the reasons I chose Howzat over other companies were the speed of response to queries. Immediate responses made me feel you really wanted my custom. A tremendous tour with a group of very diverse people drawn together by the love of cricket and welded as a friendly group by the efforts of the Howzat team.’
    Ken Storey

    ‘I feel Howzat Travel have a winning recipe for cricket tours. It’s the second tour I have been on with Howzat Travel and would be more than willing to go on another!’
    Mike Williams

    ‘We enjoyed the whole experience and all aspects of our tour which went very smoothly.’

    ‘We had such a good time! Great to catch up with friends from previous tours. Great cricket. Food was good. Q & A sessions good. End of tour dinner was good. Such a lovely country to see. Logistics great – really well organised. Brilliant Tour Managers.’
    Nick & Liz Morton

    ‘Another tour with Howzat and another amazing experience! As always, Howzat provided an excellent service starting with helpful planning to craft the schedule that we wanted. A driver and min-van were arranged for our sight-seeing, and we loved seeing most of the iconic parts of Sri Lanka, including the Cultural Triangle, the train journey to Nuwara Eliya along with a safari and whale watching. And on this occasion the England cricket team delivered, and both games were memorable in their own right – an entertaining T20 win in front of a partisan home crowd and a wonderful test match victory at the unique venue offered in Galle. Throughout the cricket part of our trip all the Howzat team were really helpful, with Bob and Helen a great partnership at our hotel. And a really enjoyable dinner was arranged with Matt Prior speaking, to conclude the trip. Thanks to all concerned and needless to say we are already debating which will be our next Howzat tour!’
    Nigel, Hazel, Laura & Graham Maxfield

    ‘Absolutely fantastic, my first experience of both Howzat Travel and overseas sports tours. Would highly recommend.’

    “We had a blast, even though we were unlucky with the weather when it came to the cricket. Karen and Steve couldn’t be more helpful and professional, everything went like clockwork! Very enjoyable tour.”
    Liz & Dave Lynch

    ‘Howzat Travel has built its reputation on excellent customer care and flexibility. It continues to impress. We were incredibly lucky with the weather especially at Galle where the forecasts on arrival made us wonder if we would see any cricket there at all. Fortunately the forecasts were very wrong. When the team you support wins that is always a help. There were a good set of people who got on well together.’
    Geoff Marshall

    ‘Our first visit to Sri Lanka, but not our last. So looking forward to the next tour.’
    Ernest & Yvonne Taylor

    David Oudot

    “Our Tour Managers were very good, they did a great job and were very nice to talk to. I liked the consideration of those wishing to stay at the cricket matches while it rained and those wishing to go back to the hotel and organizing the coaches accordingly. Great police escort to the matches at Dambulla!”
