CricTours – it’s not just cricket
We are a family run specialist cricket tour operator owned and operated by caring, knowledgeable staff dedicated to good, old-fashioned service to ensure you have a wonderful holiday
We have been taking our clients on tours since 2001 and follow England year-in, year-out – not just for the Ashes. We are officially appointed for the 2017-18 Ashes series by Cricket Australia Travel Office – our 5th appointment on the trot! Our upcoming tours include trips to New Zealand, Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
Our tours are fully escorted by our own experienced, friendly Tour Directors and are limited to a maximum of 36 persons. Our office team have all escorted tours and can talk to you about the best way to enjoy our range of destinations.
On tour the atmosphere is very friendly and inclusive. We use mainly 5-star hotels and always include breakfast to get you off to a good start each day. We often include upgraded rooms, as standard, to give you better views and/or facilities. During most tours we host a Welcome Cocktail Party, a Cricket Forum and a Farewell Dinner. During the Melbourne Test we host a wonderful, festive Christmas lunch and prior to the Sydney Test we have a fabulous dinner/party overlooking the spectacular fireworks to welcome in the New Year.
Frequently asked questions
Are flights included?To ensure maximum flexibility we allow you to choose your own international flights – dates, departure point, airline, class of travel – rather than being corralled on to pre-determined group flights.
On arrival, how do I get from the airport to the hotel?For that personal touch we ensure that you and your travelling companions are met at the airport upon your arrival into Australia and privately transferred to your hotel. Naturally, we also transfer you back to the airport for your flight home.
Are match tickets included?
All tours include guaranteed official match tickets. We always strive for the best seats in the house. For the Ashes we have chosen Platinum tickets which are the highest category and will be in the shade, elevated and in the mid-on/mid-off arc ‘behind the bowler/wicketkeeper’.
What about sightseeing?
Our tours include guided sightseeing in each location we visit, to save you time and show you the best of the destination. We also include any entrance fees applicable and lunch on most sightseeing days. During the Ashes, we have a wide range of optional tours available including wine tasting in the Barossa Valley, exploring the Blue Mountains, discovering the awesome Red Centre (including Ayers Rock/Uluru), relaxing in Margaret River south of Perth and/or cruising to the Great Barrier Reef.
