“Thank you once again for an absolutely fantastic tour. Other than losing at Barbados (but it was a great test) the tour was perfect! There are so many aspects that were first class. Ian was very helpful as our Tour Manager and always had time for all the guests staying at Sandals, despite having to deal with all the stresses associated with a Caribbean test series. What is also particularly impressive is the work of a number of the team, who were not directly responsible for us: Carl in coordinating the pre-travel arrangements; Katy taking the time out on the first night to ensure Graham had safely arrived, when he was the only traveller on the flight from Miami; Linda taking the trouble on the first day of the Grenada test to introduce herself after all of our previous email interchanges; Stephen’s friendly disposition following on from being our tour manager in Melbourne; Maggie’s helpful sourcing of a pub for Graham near the ground showing the football in Barbados; Des’s cheerful day-to-day interactions. And we were sorry not to see Steve again, who was left manning operations at HQ on this tour. This personal and attentive attention to detail is a key differentiating feature of Howzat Travel’s service. All the arrangements relating to flights, transfers, hotels and tickets were ‘spot on’ and very efficiently executed. And yet again, the end of tour dinners, which are not advertised in advance, are a lovely extra. Graeme Swann, effectively supported by Mike Selvey, was superb in Grenada. Then the Barbados evening with Sir Garfield Sobers, Gordon Greenidge and Jonathan Agnew was amazing and will take some beating! In conclusion, we loved all of our three weeks on tour and it will be a time that we will always fondly remember. Thank you for all your hard work that brought this to fruition. Needless to say we are hungry to do future cricket tours and would only ever use Howzat Travel. Our very best wishes to you all.”
    Nigel, Hazel, Laura and Graham Maxfield

    “Once again Howzat Travel organised a great tour for us. The organisation and all aspects were excellent and we were well looked after by Des. The farewell meal with Sir Garfield Sobers and Gordon Greenidge were particular highlights. All Howzat staff that we came in contact with were approachable, friendly and helpful.”
    Nigel & Jackie Crickmore

    “10/10 for everything! A great blend of beach and cricket (apart from the cricket itself!). I enjoyed the end of tour dinner very much � the setting, food and special guests were all very good indeed. Great memories. This, and my paragliding with you in NZ, are two of my best life experiences with Howzat Travel.”
    Kathy Taylor

    “The Howzat tour managers were first rate, they were always there to help and never forgetting any request that were made. This is not surprising following the pre-departure arrangements which were most helpful and courteous. Overall the tour was extremely well organised with excellent and friendly staff at all levels. I would certainly recommend Howzat Travel.”
    Margaret Jobling

    “An extremely good tour. All staff and participants were friendly and the end of tour party was brilliant!”
    Frank Jenkins

    “Having been a customer of another operator for ten years until now, I was very impressed how Howzat Travel has become the premier cricket tour operator. I was happy with the balance Howzat Travel achieves between assuring that everything works smoothly without being over-intrusive. Des and David were excellent and made a good double-act.”
    Mark Morison

    “Excellent value for money, excellent tour managers, very good seating at the cricket, very good hotels, and very good international and internal flights. I wouldn’t change anything. There is usually plenty of choice (inc. hotels) to suit everyone. The use of the facilities at the Antigua Athletics Club before our return flight was very welcome. A big thank you for that arrangement.”
    Colin Webb

    “10/10! All very good… and Maggi was excellent!”
    Daryl Griffin & Brian Boumphery

    “Very well organised and we saw an England win… what’s not to like?! Excellent, shaded seats at the cricket, good accommodation, excellent tour managers and very good value for money. Just keep the mix of good organisation plus enabling individual tastes.”

    “I couldn’t fault the tour – I did try, but failed miserably… congratulations! Brilliant value for money too. I had a great time and met some good people. It’s just a pity about the cricket result. All of the tour managers were fantastic as usual – always helpful and polite. Brilliant – no complaints at all. Keep it up and don’t change anything!”
    Barry Jenkins

    “We were very pleased with all aspects of the tour. We would like to thank the Howzat Travel team for your kind words, card and champagne on our engagement. When we look to tour again you will be at the top of our list.”
    Gary Marriner & Jillian Clarke

    “Brilliant! It was my 40th birthday present and entirely lived up to expectation. The organisation was first class, the hotel and resort were beautiful and there was a generally friendly and inclusive atmosphere to the whole holiday. There is an obvious passion amongst the tour managers to make sure that your holiday is perfect, but not such that it becomes too intrusive. First class from start to end. The team made the booking process easy for someone who had no experience of booking a cricket tour before; answering lots of questions and providing guidance and support on which options to choose to make it a special birthday present for my husband. We really liked the pre-tour inspection report as it made us confident that all bases had been covered. Great to see the seats we were sitting in and the view we would get. Excellent. A clear view straight down the ground with a fantastic view of the cricket. We liked fact that we were sat with all other Howzat Travel customers and not with more vocal elements of crowd. Accommodation – our room was everything we hoped it would be. Clean and recently re-furbished. Nice and cool with beautiful views of the beach. Transfers were perfect – on time and got us to the cricket and airport in plenty of time. Nice air con and good humoured drivers. Tour managers… a great combination of providing us with help and organisation when needed, but also leaving us to do our own thing when we wanted. Karen & Steve were always around and visible if we did need anything. The cricket days were organised very well making sure we were all present, but with the minimum of fuss. Linda was always good fun and made you feel part of the Howzat family. We enjoyed every aspect of the holiday and we would be definitely return on another Howzat Travel tour. We spoke to other people on the tour who had travelled with other companies in the past, but who now swear by Howzat Travel. It appears that keeping a personal touch remains really important, which at the moment, you do in spades.”

    “A truly fabulous tour to the West Indies which will stay in my memory forever. The attention to detail was second to none, with every hotel having tremendous facilities and being a stone’s throw from the beach. Meeting up with old friends was very special, and meeting many new friends was so special too. A big thank you to Linda, Steve and Karen for their hard work and making this tour so memorable.”
    Colin Charman

    “Excellent! We are most impressed and have already recommended Howzat Travel to several people. I thought the tour was good value. Tours and excursions booked by tour managers were very smooth. Very friendly tour managers, and other members of the group were friendly. Ross was very sociable, Jenni was efficient and Katy had super ‘people person’ skills. The fact that 25 days passed so quickly must mean you did most things correctly. Our little group had a brilliant time! Thank you all.”
    Brian Baker

    “A very good tour. Excellent communications and all requests were satisfactorily dealt with. We would recommend Howzat Travel to friends.”
    Elizabeth Dobson & Angela Place

    “Every aspect of the tour was well-organised and communicated to everyone. Tour managers… there was always someone on hand if required, and they were well informed on what was available when there was no cricket. Excellent value for money! I can only congratulate the company and team in the West Indies for everything they did. This was our second tour experience with Howzat Travel and we have now booked for South Africa too.”
    Bob Pinkney, Derek Hubbard, Trevor Northfield, Brian Thaxton

    “10/10’s across the board! Howzat Travel provided us with everything we needed prior to the tour and were effecient in responding. The tour managers were superb and made everyone in the group feel included. Keep up the good work and we look forward to travelling with you again to South Africa!”
    Des & Maggie Whitelock

    “Thanks for a well organised tour.”
    Norman Martin

    “I did all three test matches in the West Indies and Howzat Travel did their usual, excellent job. Every tour manager was always helpful, even if you were not in their group. See you again on the South Africa tour!”
    Neil Draper

    “Grenada was an excellent trip.  Many thanks for all your organisation.  If I ever do a trip like that again, I will bear you all in mind.”
    Chris Sutton-Mattocks

    “Another fabulous tour which was so well organised. Good hotels, good seats at the cricket, and a fantastic end of tour dinner in Barbados. Excellent value for money with everything included! Accommodation was excellent – clean, tidy, in a fab location  and with friendly staff. Graham was lovely – friendly, easy-going and helped the group to gel. Carl and Des were fantastic as always. Don’t change anything – please keeps things as they are with the personal and friendly service.”
    Fiona & Pete Cawsey

    “Thank you for a simply marvellous tour. Pre-tour arrangements were excellent – Carl arranged the flight specification we had requested. Superb seats at the cricket – they couldn’t be improved upon! The transfers to and from the cricket could not be faulted. Ian was our tour manager… what can we say? Nothing was too much trouble and Ian took care of every detail – we are very impressed and very grateful. Thank you Ian! Excellent value for money – and great to have peace of mind. You seem to have thought of everything! We really enjoyed the two dinners with Sir Viv Richards and Graeme Swann – do continue with that tradition. It was a privilege to be there and both occasions were memorable. This was our first cricket tour, recommended to us by friends who have travelled with Howzat Travel before. We enjoyed it so much that we’re now looking at future tours and recommending Howzat Travel to other friends. Thank you to all the lovely, friendly Howzat Travel team and to Ian in particular. We loved every aspect of the tour – even more than we expected. The combination of having the cricket arrangements made for you, company of the group if you wanted it and excellent accommodation in first-class resorts made for a winning formula – even if the cricket wasn’t always at its best!”
    John & Susan Brough

    “Excellently-organised yet again by all concerned. Graham and Carl made sure everyone in the group knew what was going on.”
    Alan Jones

    “Very well organised and professional, and very good value for money. Everything was as we were told. Thank you for a fantastic tour – we both really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were excellent – very friendly and helpful, and did everything they could to make things run smoothly. Thanks to Jenny, Kate and Ross for looking after us so well. We had a fantastic time, which was made special by Ian arranging for us to visit the Barbados hotel we got married in 26 years ago.”
    Karen & Kingsley Mortimore

    “Thanks for a great tour – the farewell dinner was a highlight. The tour managers were very friendly, social able and professional.”
    John Lord

    “Thanks for another great tour. As ever, Howzat Travel’s organisation and friendly, helpful tour managers made for a smooth, enjoyable experience. The leaving do had Gary Sobers and Gordon Greenidge in attendance… enough said!”
    David Lowe

    “10/10! Very good indeed. I would like to compliment your staff in the way in which one particular issue was dealt with, and the brilliant outcome. Thank you very much. From my point of view, there is nothing you should change. I had a great time and when I go on another sports tour, I will certainly use your company.”
    Graham Mortimer

    “Living the Dream!” (Dave Melling, April 2015). Once again, a great trip which exceeded my expectations. Fantastic seats at the cricket and top class tour managers. Thanks to Steve and Carl for their efforts in getting a shirt signed for my friend. I shook hands with Sir Viv Richards, Sir Ian Botham & Swanny. Michael Vaughan came over and talked to me for five minutes at the Radisson, where we were staying with the Windies team. I saw Jimmy take his 384th Test wicket. It doesn’t get any better! The first place I have been to where the reality is better than the brochure. Great hotels and food, wonderful company, top organisation, sun, sea, sand, cricket… and rum punch!”
    Steve Curzons

    “An excellent tour! Very good communications, hotel and tour managers. This was my first cricket tour, which I really enjoyed. I am very keen to go on future tours with Howzat Travel. Our tour manager Maggi was absolutely excellent throughout the whole trip. She was always there to help us, advise us, have fun with us, answer our questions, was very approachable and had an unobtrusive presence at all times. She was just amazing – and very knowledgeable! A very big thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of the trip.”
    Pauline Simpson

    “A thoroughly enjoyable tour. It’s a shame cricket finished early! A lovely group of people and tour managers. A lovely hotel – beautifully situated on the beach, excellent staff, breakfasts etc. Very good, well organised transfers, very good value for money. The tour managers… Graham was excellent – very friendly, knowledgeable, informative, available, sociable, and inclusive of the whole group… an excellent tour manager! Carl was also excellent – friendly, informative, sociable and always available. Both went out of their way to organise other events for the group. Howzat Travel should be very pleased with them both.”
    David & Marion Inglis

    “A very good tour… excellent communications and tour managers, very good accommodation and transfers, and good value for money. We had a lovely time and it was an absolute pleasure meeting you all.”
    Pauline & Geoff

    “A great tour! We had a room with a fabulous view of beach and sea. Good transfers – especially to cricket. The tour managers were excellent, and we thought the tour was good value for money. Graham kept us informed and he interacted well with everyone on tour. Carl kept the standard up when Graham left and made a point of seeking us out to say goodbye. Des was very amusing and knowledgeable. Karen recognised us from previous tour, which is amazing when you realise the numbers of people you deal with! We had a wonderful time despite the test result, and would most certainly go to Barbados again.”
    Bernard & Margaret Leahy

    ” We had a really great time! Everything was well organised and the transfers – on what was quite a complicated tour logistically speaking – went very well. All the staff were great (Linda even collected a prescription for me!) and went the extra mile in ensuring everything was running smoothly. Pity about the last Test, but we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”
    Rob & Marilyn Gould

    “Now that I have settled back in England I feel I can now reflect on what was a superb four weeks in the Caribbean. It was a very well run and professional tour with great cricket (apart from Barbados), great locations and great company. Great value for money for a four week holiday in the Caribbean. The tour managers were helpful and informative, and always on hand for any queries. The tour lived up to my expectations and more. Thank you for a brilliant holiday! I would definitely recommend Howzat Travel to friends.”
    Trevor Doleman

    “We can think of no way the Windies tour could have been improved. We were both delighted with the experience and have nothing but praise for the staff involved. The mixture of full and half-board was a good idea. We look forward to renewing friendships in 2016. Thanks again and congratulations to all concerned.”
    Roger & Anne Arnett

    “A good booking and payment process, and the full time staff are all brilliant!”
    Gillie Fisher

    “10/10 for our tour manager Des! We would recommend Howzat Travel to friends.”
    Colin & Christine Young

    “I really enjoyed the tour… it’s a shame cricket only lasted three days! Good accommodation in a lovely setting. Good transfers, good value for money, and your tour manager was excellent. I can’t think of anything to change on future tours.”
    Robert Stockwell

    “A very good tour! We were delighted with Howzat Travel when we went with them to Australia, and this trip has only served to reinforce this positive impression. We had a great time – all of the staff were very communicative, friendly, approachable, and had a good sense of humour. Thanks to you all for making it happen. We are looking forward to the next one already!”
    Nigel & Chris Lord

    “Everything worked. All the flights, connections, transports, arrangements, tickets and hotels happened exactly as advertised. Sufficient Howzat Travel staff were present at every hotel, at every ground and by every bus – to ensure everyone got where they needed to. They were always approachable, never looking hassled or directive, despite what may have been organisational issues they had to resolve. What really impressed me about Howzat Travel was in the run-up, where I (and presumably many others, given our demographic) had specific individual questions. Not only did I (always) get a personal, specific and intelligent response within 24 hours to every enquiry I submitted, but they even contacted the airline with one of my queries, and elicited a helpful response from them.  And when you rang up, a person answered – and one that seemed to know you.  So, I can’t fault their organisation, and can certainly recommend them should any of my friends be contemplating making a cricket-based overseas tour themselves.”
    John Waller

    “A well-run tour, no major hitches and lots of happy customers. The tour managers always ensure the messages get to all – a good service. They were attentive as usual, and helpful if the need arose.
    I wish to give Katy a plaudit for getting the Dover Beach to put a buffet up on match days, done on time and a wide selection. This was my second time with Howzat Travel… I came away having had a good holiday for the cost.”
    Mike Tyrer

    “I enjoyed the tour despite the result. The travel arrangements, accommodation and location were good. The dinner was fantastic. All of the tour managers were conscientious, and Maggi was a star!”
    Chris Simpson

    “As a leader of a party of 17, I got to know all of the tour managers and couldn’t fault any of them. You are simply miles ahead of your competitors! From the company directors to the tour managers, your communication was excellent. I would just like this opportunity to congratulate you all and all of your staff on a wonderfully organised trip – top marks from start to finish. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed it. The care and attention of all of your staff on tour was top notch, but I would like to say a special thank you for the service received from David Stewart especially for the way he handled the injury to one of our party – you must be very proud to have him on board. The whole trip was finished off by the fantastic end of tour party, which all my party keep going on about. What a night! Until next time, thank you all very much. We highly recommend Howzat Travel and will be back for more!”
    Terry Groves

    “A very enjoyable trip amongst a lot of old friends met on previous tours. I can only guess at the logistical problems which you had to overcome to get us there, around the islands, and back home. Incredibly well done! Des, as always, was excellent. One of Howzat’s most attractive and customer-friendly features is their flexibility… I would most certainly recommend Howzat Travel and have already done so on a number of occasions.”
    Geoff Marshall

    “10/10! A Fantastic Tour! Great organisation by the Howzat Travel team as usual. I made some new friends and also met some old friends from previous tours. I also enjoyed the farewell meal with the guest speakers. Keep up the good work!”
    Jeremy Majumdar

    It was all good. I had a fab time… lots of suggestions for trips, and as a single traveller there were lots of opportunities to meet others. Maggi was wonderful and made so much effort to engage with people. Nick was great too. Days 4 and 5 at the cricket would have been nice!”
    Simon Page

    “I enjoyed the tour very much. Good accommodation and transfers, and good value for money.”
    Eric Child

    “A very enjoyable tour and Karen was very good. The personal touch is  a great strength of the team.”
    Paul Badger

    “A very good tour. Travel, hotels, organisation, helpfulness, end of tour dinner, flexibility, etc. were all top notch. Excellent seating at the cricket, excellent tour managers and good value for money. We had a wonderful time and would like to thank you and your team for all your considerable efforts while we were in the West Indies – all much appreciated. More of the same please – with as much flexibility that you can provide.”
    Barry & Lorraine Johnson

    “Thank you for another excellent trip – well organised as usual. The tour managers were top class and the end of tour dinner was great. Up to the usual excellent standards!”
    Garry Clarke

    “I enjoyed the tour from start to finish. Your organisation was first class, the hotel excellent and most of all, your tour managers Maggi and Nick were of great assistance to me. I would have no qualms about travelling with you in the future and would recommend you to others.”
    Terry Hague

    “A great tour! Very well planned and executed. Accommodation was in a superb location, and Maggi and Nick were fantastic – they had so much knowledge. Well done!”
    Roger Knowlton

    “Good seating at the cricket, brilliantly-organised transfers, wonderful tour managers (as always) and good value for money. A really enjoyable tour!”
    Jo North

    “10/10 for Maggi! I would recommend Howzat Travel to friends.”
    David Fry

    “We had a great time – many thanks. Graham was excellent – he really got the group together and chatted to one and all making sure everyone felt involved … outstanding! In terms of value for money, you compared well with other organisations. The gala dinner was a triumph – well done to one and all. Carl also organised a final evening ‘do’ for our group – all attended, which was a credit to Graham and Carl. It was a great way to round off an excellent tour!”
    Graham & Carol Parker

    “I really enjoyed the tour and will watch for future tours as they are announced. The people on the tour were great, and once we got to know each other it was a great group. 10/10 for value for money, the tour managers, communications and my overall opinion of the tour.”
    Mike Quinn

    “Pre-departure information was good, as were the seating arrangements at the grounds. Jenny was very professional and a pleasure to be with. Good value for money – a great time had, and I would recommend Howzat Travel.”
    Tim Ansell

    “First timer and was well impressed. Faultless arrangements and the tour managers were brilliant – well done Steve and Karen, and others we met. I have already recommended you to friends!”
    Alan Thomas

    “A great holiday. Met some super people. Shook hands with Sir Viv Richards and had a photo with Sir Gary Sobers and Gordon Greenidge. Fantastic! I greatly enjoyed the tour – the organisation and arrangements were first class, and the fellow travellers were very friendly. Also, on non-cricket days, the available tours were excellent. All of the tour managers were very helpful, but our Ross Parry was great and one of the lads. I also want to Carl – I had a couple of questions before we left, and he was extremely helpful. I will definitely go on tour with Howzat Travel again, and am already looking at India 2016. Keep up the good work!”
    Lewis Bond

    “Excellent communications and accuracy of pre-departure information. Very good value for money. The tour managers were helpful, sociable and well-organised. All I all, excellent, although you did not arrange a win in the third test! I can’t think of anything to improve things.”
    Mike Williams

    “Once again, the booking and arrangements went smoothly without any problems. Everything was as stated in documentation provided. The seats were excellent, providing an excellent view of the cricket, as well as welcome shade. The hotel was very good and provided all the amenities that we could have wanted. The transfers to and from the cricket were excellent – our driver junior was very good. All members of the Howzat Travel team were very helpful and knowledgeable, as usual. The only down side of the tour was the result (which is outside everyone’s control!), but once again this was an excellent experience, with the Barbados farewell dinner being a highlight.”
    Mark Browning

    “Once again, a brilliantly-organised trip by Howzat Travel. I had a terrific time, and continue to recommend you as my preferred overseas cricket partner!”
    Jemima Bird

    “We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves – everything was well organised. Seats at the cricket were ideal – shaded and we were able to move about in both Antigua and Grenada. Excellent accommodation and no issues with the transfers. The tour managers were all good – Ian looked after us very well. It was smashing meeting Linda and seeing the other tour managers we’d previously met in Australia. Howzat Travel has once again facilitated a great holiday and we’d certainly travel with them again. A very professional company and certainly one that provides flexibility, and that looks to add that personal touch… and from the info I received from other tour operators pre-tour, Howzat Travel’s prices were very competitive.”
    Mark & Ann Bishop

    “Howzat Travel is a thoroughly professional organisation and this was a splendid trip! (We cannot hold Howzat responsible for the pitch!). We Yorkshire folk are reluctant to part with money, but I grudgingly admit this tour was 10/10 in terms of value for money. The Viv Richards evening was a real bonus. An excellent view and total shade at the cricket was really appreciated. The tour managers were all very good. Maggie was splendid – a real asset. She was always about and always helpful. This was my sixth cricket tour but my first with Howzat Travel. I am in a good position to say that Howzat Travel is clearly the market leader! ”
    Clive Pickles

    “Many thanks for another brilliant tour. As usual, the Howzat Travel team worked really hard to ensure that everyone had a great time. The seats in the stadiums were excellent and the food provided at the hospitality in Barbados was good too (especially the éclairs!). The two cricket evenings were really well done. We enjoyed the Mike Selvey/Graeme Swann one – it was fabulous! Great choice of venue… The evening in Barbados with Jonathan Agnew, Sir Garfield Sobers and Gordon Greenidge was also an excellent one. In terms of accommodation, the Sandals resort in Grenada was fabulous! Once again, thanks for a well organised trip. Probably see you in South Africa…”
    Julie Whitaker & Peter Oldham

    “We were all very impressed by the efficiency and organisation of Howzat Travel and we all had a great time. We even saw England win and not too many people can say that, especially the ones who went to Barbados only! The seats at the cricket were very good. in Antigua, they were excellent in a shaded stand with a very good view. In Grenada we were high up directly behind the bowler’s arm, so we had a great view particularly of Jimmy Anderson’s wickets on the final day of the test. Accommodation was brilliant… the Grand Pineapple in Antigua was lovely in a bit of a shabby/chic way. Our rooms were 10m from a lovely beach. The breakfasts were good as were the cocktails – especially if you asked for the bottle of rum to top up for added strength! The Radisson in Grenada was excellent also in a different way – more modern and sophisticated, and chosen by the West Indies team, TMS commentators and match umpires. A great beach, great swimming pools, great breakfast… almost a 5-star experience. Transfers were excellent and the tour managers were very good – helpful and efficient. Special thanks to Steve who was our main man throughout the tour. I would also have to say excellent value for money. The 10-day stay at the Radisson would have cost over half the total amount I would have thought if we had booked individually! We really enjoyed all aspects of the holiday. The farewell meal with speakers was a great idea and to be able to buy into the Viv Richards evening was great also. The choice of hotels was excellent and the seats in the grounds could not be faulted also. Many thanks for organising such a wonderful holiday for us.”
    Gary Aiston

    “Excellent all round. Although the cricket was poor, Barbados was a fabulous place and more than made up it. I must make a special mention of Maggi – she was brilliant throughout, always there but never intrusive. Maggi was really helpful, especially on trips and places to go, see, eat etc. Nick was also great fun, and again always around if you needed him. They sorted out any difficulties we had. Thanks to you guys for enhancing Barbados. Howzat Travel made the trip a great one. ”
    Tony Blakeburn

    “Thank you and all the Howzat Travel team for a wonderful cricketing experience. We had a great time and enjoyed mixing with all the other customers at the hotels, on the buses, at cricket and in the bars. Thanks to David for his assistance. For me personally, it was lovely – Jimmy breaking the wickets record and his one man show in one session in Grenada… and both test matches going into final session on the fifth day made it all worthwhile. I am sure Tony and myself will be on future tours. Best wishes…”
    Tony Brothers

    “Our fifth tour – second with Howzat Travel – and it was fantastic! I could not fault anything. Hassle-free booking arrangements, faultless and informative pre-departure information, great view at the cricket, the transfers ran smoothly, and all of the tour managers were very friendly and helpful. They all took their time to talk to and get to know us. Maggi was amazing – very well organised and on top of everything. Good advice was given by Nick on places to eat. Fantastic value for money – everything done for you, and hassle free! We will use Howzat Travel again. We have and will continue to recommend to others.”
    Peter & Tina Barker

    “It was well worth going and it was nice to see England win a match. We enjoyed the atmosphere in Grenada as the team were staying at the same hotel, which made it a bit special. Both the hotels in Grenada and Barbados were excellent. It all seemed to go very well and it’s difficult to see where any improvements could be made. We found all of the tour managers very helpful and informed. Our tour manager David was excellent in Barbados – so helpful in sorting out any problems we had with my wife damaging her ankle – he was a brick! He travelled with us to the hospital to sort out any potential problems we might have encountered, and altered our seating arrangements at the ground. He was very helpful in other ways too, so deserves a special mention. We would use Howzat Travel again.”
    Mr & Mrs R Warner

    “Jolly good fun! A well organised tour with decent quality hotels and facilities. Communications were excellent – we were in no doubt about everything both before and during the tour. Accommodation was excellent (absolutely no complaints), transfers were well-organised and efficient, and the tour managers were friendly and knowledgeable with a sense of fun. I would change very little – you have a winning formula so stick with it.”
    Jamie Stokoe

    “This was a very enjoyable tour with great company, and many cricketing and off-field highlights to enjoy. This was a complicated tour logistically, so it would have been easy to provide misleading information inadvertently. This did not happen. Accommodation and seating at the cricket were both excellent, as was our tour manager Des. Well done, keep up the good work!”
    Rob Turton

    “A very good tour and well organised. Pre-departure booking and arrangements could not have been better, brilliant seats at both matches – good position behind the wicket and under cover. Accommodation – the Halcyon Cove was very enjoyable and the Radisson was excellent. Staff service, food and drink were excellent at both hotels. Excellent communications, very good value for money. I hope to join you again in the future. Maggi was outstanding at the Halcyon Cove, well supported by Graham. Good value for money – I’m very impressed.”
    Colin Stock

    “A very good tour and lots of new contacts made. Excellent seats for viewing the cricket. The Grenada win was a fitting finale. Communications were excellent pre-tour and during. Excellent, prompt responses to queries, in particular our St. Kitts ‘add-on’. Thanks Carl (my personal travel agent!). Very good value for money too. Maggi was superb – responding to issues well beyond what we should expect. Linda was also very sociable!”
    Roger Ollier

    “The tour managers were excellent, as is only to be expected. Maggi was exemplary! Excellent seating at the cricket. A very good tour and I enjoyed everyone’s company. Spot-on communications too. I think you’ve got it right – we appreciate the personal touch.”
    Kate Ollier

    “Very good seats at the cricket, accommodation and transfers… and excellent tour managers!”
    Rose Baring

    “A very enjoyable tour – we met some friends old and new. Excellent seating at both matches and the transfers were well-organised. The tour managers were very good at everything. A special mention must go to Maggi, who was superb! I would do very little to change things – keep up the good work.”
    Barrie & Sandra Rose

    “A most enjoyable tour. I thoroughly enjoyed the farewell dinner with Graeme Swann. The tour managers were always helpful.”
    Roy Steele

    “I can’t think of anything to change – you have a good product. Well organised. Howzat Travel managed the large number of travellers in such a way that I still felt I was receiving personal service. As a tutor in customer service, I will be holding up to my students tour manager Jenni as an excellent example of how to deliver high quality customer service – her professionalism shone through.”
    Chris Phillips

    “An excellent tour and good value for money. I can’t suggest much to improve things… with the large amount of customers you had on tour you did well. Maggi was excellent!”
    Philip Sharratt

    “A massive thank you to everyone at Howzat Travel for making it such a great tour. Special thanks to Karen, for calming me down over the smoking ban at the Radisson, Karen and Steve for going far above and beyond to get me seats in which I could be comfortable, and for getting my room changed in Grenada, David for working miracles on a seat for me in Barbados, and last but by no means least to Linda for looking after us all so well.”
    Jo North

    “Thank you for what was a very enjoyable time for us in the West Indies. Given the result, perhaps it was wise of us to have skipped the Barbados test!”

    “Excellent! Very knowledgeable tour managers. Good seats with an excellent view of the wicket, and excellent value for money. We will definitely travel with you again, and will be recommending you to anyone who will listen!”
    Gillian & Richard Pasola

    “Overall good job. I would certainly recommend Howzat Travel, their communication prior and during the tour was excellent and Des was a fantastic tour manager.”
    Terence & Yvonne Mundy

    “Howzat Travel has many excellent qualities and is a totally professional company with a good ‘product’. Maggie was superb and Graham was a good support.”
    Trevor Crouch

    “An exciting and enjoyable tour full of new experiences. Communications were spot on and the tour managers were friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The trip was always good, usually very good, and often excellent!”
    John Burdett

    “A very good tour. The pre-departure booking and arrangements were all done with the usual efficiency. Seating at the cricket was in total shade all day, and a good view. Accommodation location, facilities and atmosphere were very good, and the tour managers lived up to the standard we have come to expect!”
    Malcolm & Rosemary Welborn

    “Excellent pre-tour communications. All questions/queries were answered promptly in the build-up to departure. I enjoyed the tour very much. Having a couple of days at the beginning to settle in and ‘do the tours’ was a good idea. Karen, Linda and Steve were always available and helpful when needed. Given the overall enjoyment of the trip/holiday, I believe that I had good value for my money.”
    Paul Hardie

    “A great tour – we made some great friends and had a really good time with everyone. Des and David were fab! Overall, you have winning formula – a great team and great customers! Thanks to Des, David and Carl, and to all the drivers. We really had a wonderful trip. I would definitely recommend Howzat Travel to anyone.”
    Dawn Dale

    “The tour was just about right. As usual, Graham and Des were outstanding company! The farewell dinner in Grenada was the best yet – Swanny was excellent, and the food and drinks were top form too. Well done!”
    Paul Stowell

    Hedley Jenkins

    “I wanted to repeat my sincere thanks for a wonderful time we had as a result of you and your staff’s diligence. Organizational skills top notch.”

    “A very good tour and I’m very happy with the value for money. Excellent seats at the cricket with a great view. The transfers to and from the cricket were very easy – no problems and well-organised. Our tour managers made an excellent team of three, all with a good sense of humour… Jenni was well-organised, especially on arrival, Ross was good at communicating with the customers, and Katy was good and enthusiastic. It was nice to have some free days to see Antigua before the Test started. I am definitely looking at coming to Cape Town!”
    Paul Williams

    “My first cricket tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The seating at the cricket was very good and we were able to move around to our heart’s content. We were also treated to a day in your hospitality box due to my travelling companion’s birthday, for which we are all very thankful. The tour managers were excellent – very helpful.”
    Don Smith

    “A good holiday. The Jolly Beach was clean and the food was good. Seating at the cricket was good, made better by being able to freely move around the ground.”

    “I had an excellent time and the tour was very good value for money. Jenni was great – clear communications and well-organised.”
    Graham Glynn

    “The tour managers were very efficient and smashing people as well! I can’t think of anything offhand that would improve the tour.””

    “A fabulous tour, well managed by our tour managers Jenni, Katy and Ross. I feel that this was a real value-for-money tour and would not hesitate to tour again with Howzat Travel. Jenni was always going the extra mile to ensure our enjoyment (at the cricket). She was a brilliant guide, sociable, very helpful and had the experience to cope with any situation. She had a good sense of humour and treated us all as valued individuals at all times. The farewell dinner with Sir Viv Richards was the best and the highlight of the holiday – well done David for your interviewing skills.”
    Elaine Chapman

    “Another excellent tour! Jenni, Katy & Ross were great tour managers – not only at the cricket, but socially in the evening too. No complaints… ”
