“Excellent all round! A brilliant tour – my first – and I found the whole experience inch-perfect and thoroughly enjoyable. It was a real pleasure to meet you Ian, and the rest of the team, and also to meet some well-travelled, very knowledgeable and extremely friendly supporters.”
    Carl Rollinson

    “A great tour with a great result. It doesn’t get any better than that! Good quality at a fair price.”
    John Davis

    “The whole experience more than exceeded my expectations and I would certainly advise any prospective customers to check with Howzat Travel before they look at any other provider as far as cricket tours are concerned. The organisation was effective and efficient without being too overbearing and the quality of the cricket was, of course, a real bonus. Howzat Travel are very competitive when compared to other providers and there were no ‘hidden’ additional costs, which is a rarity these days. Very impressive.”
    Andy Timpson

    “Extremely good value for money. The tour was well conducted from start to finish, with excellent transfers, tour leaders and communications.”
    Colin Wilkes

    “The first time we had been to watch England abroad and we thought the tour and organisation was absolutely fantastic. Excellent value for money too.”
    Stuart Coverley

    “We enjoyed our trip greatly. We have been visiting Australia since 1994 and have never seen a win, so to see two wins and see the Ashes retained was marvellous. Although you cannot claim responsibility for the results, you were responsible for the choice of hotels and having young children in the party, we found the apartment/hotel rooms excellent. Every one of the Howzat Travel staff were extremely pleasant and we will have no hesitation in using you again. Many thanks.”
    June & Peter Lloyd

    “Your organisation of the Opal Tour was excellent, with an excellent mix of fellow tourists and capped by great cricket and the result we wanted. My stopover in Singapore was organised perfectly for me. I would particularly like to thank Steve who was on hand to reassure me when there were delays with my flight and responded immediately to my texts. When I then flew on to Melbourne, Carl was waiting for me at the hotel. The personal service element was even there on my last morning when I had a 6.30am departure. Thank you Jenn who was around to say goodbye to me and to ensure my transfer car was on time so I caught my flight. I expect to be touring with you again in the near future as it is such a pleasurable experience.”
    Chris Phillips

    “I have just returned home from watching us win the Ashes. I went to the Brisbane and Adelaide tests with Howzat Travel on my own and such was the superb organisation (as it was when I did the ICC Twenty20 win in 2010) that I just had to go back. Howzat incredibly came up with six places for my family and friends to make the Melbourne and Sydney tests. The weather was a huge concern, but Steve kept me updated almost by the hour. On arrival we were treated like returning heroes by Ian and it was superb to again witness history with Howzat Travel. My family and two friends cannot speak highly enough of Howzat – with Steve and Ian singled out for special mention. It is hard to describe how well-organised and yet informal the trip was, yet they managed both. Thank you again for trips of a lifetime where history and memories were made.”
    Dave Millard

    “We both had a wonderful and memorable time in Australia. It was genuinely the ‘holiday of a lifetime’. The ability to combine our wishes to see Australia with the cricket tour was everything we could have wished for.”
    Diane & Bruce Ramsden

    “What a fantastic hat-trick over the last 12 months and all with Howzat Travel! South Africa, the ICC World Twenty20 and now the ultimate, the Ashes. I was apprehensive on the first trip to SA , but not anymore. I have gained new friends and can’t wait for the next trip! Organisation, hotels, etc were up to usual high standards – big thanks to Ian, Steve and their much better-looking other halves! Roll on Sri Lanka 2012.”
    John Crawshaw

    “Brilliant tour leaders, excellent transfers, excellent hotel and spot-on value for money. Fantastic!”
    Allan Martin

    “My first experience of Howzat Travel and I was very impressed. Thanks for a great tour, and to Steve & Jenn for their friendliness and good humour in Sydney. A great experience that I will remember forever.”
    Steve Davies

    “Thanks for a fantastic trip and for looking after us during our maiden voyage with Howzat Travel.”
    Frankie & Elaine Moore

    “Thank you and the Howzat Travel team for organising a superb tour. I wanted not only to get to see all the Ashes Tests (having suffered in 2005-6) but I also wanted to explore parts of Australia that I had not previously visited, and the itinerary and arrangements enabled me to achieve this. I really cannot think of anything you need to change or more that you could do.”
    Peter Hanford

    “Having just returned from a most memorable trip down under with Howzat Travel, we would like to thank you all for your part in making this tour exceed our expectations, as first-time organised tour travellers. Your experience and professionalism shone through from beginning to end, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you (indeed we already have) and look forward to another tour in the future. Many thanks and best wishes to you all.”
    Adrian & Debra Bucksey

    “We had a fantastic tour. Many thanks to Phil, Ian and Rob. Hotels were excellent, fellow tourists all good company, and one or two had remarkable stamina! We are already looking forward to the next tour… ”
    Tim Gorman

    “The tour was excellent – I had a wonderful time, probably helped by the fact that England dominated the cricket that I saw. I made new friends and I am looking forward to my next tour.”
    Mike Dodd

    “We both really enjoyed our first experience of following England abroad and already saving for the next! Thank you to Howzat Travel for making our trip of a lifetime so enjoyable, leaving us with memories that will last a lifetime. The atmosphere at the SCG throughout was fantastic, with hardly an Aussie to be heard! The only problem is how will they top that next time?”
    Ian & Angela Cox

    “A very enjoyable tour and good value for money – I would recommend Howzat Travel.”
    Kathy Taylor

    “First class all round – you have it all covered. Everyone seemed to have a great time. The accommodation was excellent and Rob was brilliant – can’t fault him in any way! I’ve already recommended Howzat Travel to friends. ”
    Tony Goff

    “Top dollar value for money – I’ll be back! Well worth it – a chance in a lifetime never to be forgotten.”
    Colin Baty

    “All the Howzat Travel team were excellent. I would definitely recommend.”
    Bill Brooks

    “Excellent tour – just the right balance between organised and easy going. People will always want changes to suite own personal needs, and for me you are just right – very flexible.”
    Robert Buckler

    “I’ve just arrived home… what a great tour it was. The New Years’ fireworks were spectacular and the cricket was awesome. Nice to meet up with Ian and Leanne again and also meet Steve, Jenn, Carl and the rest of the team. Also great to meet up with old friends and make new ones – I look forward to seeing you again on future tours. Thanks again and best regards to all. ”
    Eric Lummis

    “Most enjoyable – by far the best company I have travelled with. 10/10 all round. Very good value for money – well worth it. ”
    William Little & James Cresswell

    Michael Hopkinson

    “I thoroughly enjoyed the trip in Australia – it was an amazing time
    and I’d like to thank you for organising a fantastic holiday. The hotels, cricket tickets, flights and transfers were outstanding. Hopefully, I will see you in the future on a Howzat Travel tour.”

    Michael Joseph

    “A very good tour and to see England win a Test Match in Australia was brilliant. Thank you also for helping to arrange my tailor-made itinerary – a truly memorable journey that went like clockwork and one that I will always remember.”

    “Just wanted to say a personal thank you for the arrangements and organisation for our trip to Sydney for the final Ashes Test, follow by the extra week to see the sights of Sydney. We truly had the trip of a lifetime! The experience was exceptional; the Ashes victory, the city of Sydney with its climate, beaches, bars and restaurants were all fantastic. Our thanks go to you for your organisation and making it all go so smoothly.”
    Scott & Lynsey Wilson

    “I struggle to think of anything that I would change to make tours better in the future. Rob, Phil and Ian all brought knowledge and enthusiasm to the experience, which enhances the trip, and their own enjoyment of travel and cricket makes them a pleasure to be with.”
    John Moore

    “I had a super time and your hospitality was the very best. Thank you so much for making this trip a trip of a lifetime. I really appreciate all your efforts and hard work, so much so that I’d love to join you again in 2012!”
    Brian Newsham

    “I would like to thank the team at Howzat Travel for an enjoyable trip to Melbourne and Sydney. As a first-time traveller on a cricket tour, I wasn’t sure what to expect. With the pre-Christmas travel chaos due to inclement weather in the UK, I was decidedly concerned, but the staff in the UK kept us all informed as to what was happening and what would happen should the flight not take off. The accommodation was very good, at the Clarion Suites in Melbourne, and the Rydges World Square, both within 30 minutes walk of the respective grounds… I would travel with Howzat Travel again, maybe Sri Lanka in 2012.”
    Jason Lees

    “On behalf of myself and Josh, I would just like to say how thoroughly we enjoyed the trip and Howzat’s organisation of everything was brilliant. From the time we boarded the plane at Heathrow, we didn’t have to worry about a thing, which was just how we wanted it. Once again, thanks for everything.”
    David & Josh Long

    “To Ian, Rob and all staff who were in Australia for the tour – thank you all for looking after us through the seven weeks. You all did a great job I had a wonderful time. It’s just a pity it had to end. I am definitely interested in coming on future tours with you. Once again, many thanks.”
    Neil Draper

    “I had a great time – I’m not sure about my liver!”
    Richard Crompton

    “I had a fantastic trip thanks to you all at Howzat Travel!”
    Margaret Watton

    “I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful time we had in Australia. We are currently watching the Twenty20 and wishing we were still there. Enjoy the rest of the cricket and once again, thank you.”
    Valerie Bolton

    “Very good tour and result.”
    David Lumb

    “Thank you for the excellent Flinders Tour. From my point of view, everything went well – the staff of Howzat Travel were excellent and highly-professional. I think the trip was excellent value for money. I will definitely recommend Howzat Travel to friends and cricketing acquaintances. Thank you once again for a fantastic time.”
    David Donaldson

    “I just wanted to say thank you (Ian) to you and your colleagues for all your hard work. I very much enjoyed the tour and the organisation was excellent throughout.”
    Ian Sandles

    “We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the best four weeks ever! We feel we made the best choice of tour company as the whole tour was organised perfectly and the welcome dinner, Christmas Day and particularly the Great Ocean Road trip were brilliant. Also, just to say that Carl was excellent as our tour leader on the Ocean Road trip. We hope to see you again in the next Ashes tour and hopefully in Sri Lanka. Thanks again…”
    Mike Taylor & Emma Jones

    “Thanks for a brilliant, well-organised holiday.”
    Bob Thompson

    Peter Chalk

    “Just a note to thank you for a well planned, wonderful tour and many thanks to Ian, Rob and Phil – the tour leaders – for their laid back and friendly approach with nothing being too much trouble. The hotels chosen in Brisbane and Adelaide were excellent and in great locations. We were lucky to see fantastic cricket being played by England at the Gabba and the great win at Adelaide. Another highlight was the ‘Question and Answer’ session (arranged by Howzat) with Jonathan Agnew, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. This has been the trip of a lifetime – we could not have had a better time. Again many thanks.”
    Ralph & Mark Wylam

    “Excellent tour, no problems – we recommend Howzat Travel.”
    Emily Russon

    “I would just like to say a huge thank you to all at Howzat Travel for making my son’s recent 21st birthday trip to Australia so special. He has said the organisation on your Boomerang Tour was brilliant, the organisers and the other members of the group were really friendly, and the cricket was fantastic. As for the visit to the TMS radio commentary box, where he was lucky enough not only to meet some of his cricket heroes but also to watch KP reach his 200… well what can I say – what a superb surprise for you to organise for him. You managed to make his special birthday trip one he will always remember. The word Mike has used to sum up the whole experience is ‘AWESOME’!”
    Debbie Collinson

    “Extremely well-organised, but you are still able to do your own thing. All the advantages of a tour group, without being chaperoned everywhere.”
    Tony Wood

    “Enjoyable tour, excellent accommodation and value. The tour leaders were there if I needed them and were relaxed and sociable guys. I would certainly recommend Howzat Travel to friends.”
    Tom Wood

    Nigel Boulter

    “The tour was superb. I really enjoyed it, the atmosphere was first class. I heard from several people that once you travel with Howzat Travel, you would not go back to another company. I agree.”
