Cricket: South Africa v England Series
It seems no time at all since we were arranging trips to the last England cricket tour to South Africa in 2015. Nearly 4 years on and here we are already in the planning stages for the eagerly anticipated return to the Rainbow Nation and the untamed wilds of the South African bush!

We know South Africa very well, in particular the various safari options as Nathan, Alan, Oliver and most recently Sam have all visited themselves. This is a great opportunity to take in the cricket and explore this great country, from the winelands to Cape Town to the safari regions of Kruger and Sabi Sands for example.

The cricket tours include carefully selected accommodation, match hospitality that is second to none and once in a lifetime excursions beyond the boundaries.

South Africa is one of the finest destinations you could wish for, offering dramatic scenery, beaches, golf, safari, the magnificent city of Cape Town and excellent food and wine. South Africa is also fantastic for touring, so if you prefer to venture off the beaten track between the test matches rather than following our proposed itineraries, our travel specialists will be delighted to personalise your holiday with the best in luxurious accommodation and experiences that will amaze.

Historic Monaco Grand Prix 2020
Monte Carlo is synonymous with motor racing and the Automobile Club de Monaco undertakes the job of putting on the Monaco Historic race with the same grace and passion as they did in 1929. Nowhere else do Grand Prix cars, historic or modern, look as good as they do around the narrow streets of the Principality, nor match the sights and sounds of F1 engines – Grand Prix racing was created to take place in Monaco. Held every 2 years, now is a good time to pre-register for 2020 and ensure you are not disappointed. Packages usually start from around £849pp

Vietnamese F1 Grand Prix 2020
Confirmed for 2020, this will be the first F1 event in Indochina, and one which will most certainly be on the wish list for many. The city of Hanoi will play host, which is in close proximity to the circuit. Nicola and Oliver have both visited themselves and can put together a tailor-made trip for you to make the most of your time away. Vietnam combines well with Cambodia, the home of many ancient temples including Angkor Wat. You could also take in China or Thailand if you wanted to extend your stay. If you  would like to start reading more about Vietnam and the places to see, visit our new Indochina menu at the following page where you can read about Nicola & Oliver’s trips too.

USA Golf 2020
Two key golf tournaments take place in 2020; the US Masters in April and the Ryder Cup in Wisconsin in September. Both events provide the opportunity to build an itinerary around the tournaments to make the most of the trip. Whether this is a twin centre with one of the nearby cities, or a longer driving tour to take in other areas of the US, we offer a flexible service so to do contact us do discuss ideas.

Other events worth noting: Euro 2020, Tokyo Olympic Games and the Ashes. Contact us to register your interest on 01543 258631.
