They say that what an Antiguan can’t tell you about cricket isn’t worth knowing and it’s certainly true that they live and breathe cricket here. This charming island, fringed with superb, white sand beaches and steeped with plantation-era history is quite rightly a fantastic destination even if *gasp* you’re not into cricket, but if you are you’re in for a real treat. With a cricketing heritage that boasts Sir Viv Richards, Sir Curtley Ambrose and Sir Richie Richardson at its heart your club or school team are guaranteed the best of times on tour in Antigua with ex West Indies player Kenny Benjamin at the helm.

You’ll experience playing at some of the Caribbean’s best grounds (New Winthorp, Sir Vivian Richards, Liberta and Urlings to name a few) and be hosted by some of the most spirited cricketers you’ll ever come across. On your off days there’s a huge variety of activities and excursions to enjoy from snorkelling with stingrays, to exploring the island’s colonial past, to relaxing on one of its spectacular 365 beaches.

Having brought cricket teams and fans to Antigua for over ten years the quality of our local relationships is second-to-none so there’ll usually be a superstar on hand to offer a masterclass or drop in on training. With a selection of accommodation options we’ve chosen personally you can be sure booking with us will give you just what you want with no hassle.

As a team with mixed ability we flew to the island not knowing what to expect. Our airport welcome was excellent with cold towels and water. The short transfer time to our South Coast hotel was a bonus. The matches and opponents left us reeling at times but the camaraderie is not to be forgotten. The Defence Force hosted us on Remembrance Sunday and were able to march with other ex service men and women through the streets of Bridgetown – amazing.  Sara’s pre trip visit to us was very worthwhile and her organisation from flight, to hotel to cricket matches to days out was just right. We had a wonderful, enlightening  time and would love to again. Help for Heroes November 2014 – Jason Davey.

Having known Sara for many years I was delighted when she started International Cricket Tours. Her island knowledge and cricket connections made for a super cricket tour enjoyed by all which included well chosen grounds, wonderful days out, with quality ground handling throughout. We have toured since the early 80’s and will continue to do so – Antigua and Sri Lanka next stop. Kent 50+ Barbados November 2014 – Len Morris

Barbados 2014

We arrived back in Switzerland via London on Sunday having spent a superb three weeks in Barbados. The holiday totally exceeded our expectations. Many thanks to you and your team for helping to make this possible.  Nic played cricket almost every day for the first two weeks at the Franklyn Stephenson Academy being coached by Franklyn (photo) and a couple of older and very experienced players. He loved it, got a lot out of it, worked hard training from 9am-3pm.     The main organiser of our tour, Winston Carter, introduced us to Sir Gary at the Oval (photo) and invited Switzerland to play at the tournament next year! It really was a wonderful experience and you meet so many local people who are very ready to talk and take the time of day to do it, as well as just be kind and helpful. It was definitely  one of the best holidays we have ever been on and once again we are most grateful to you for your excellent advice and help.

Barbados 2017

Gresham’s School (Norfolk) had an amazing week in Barbados for a pre-season Cricket tour. The organisation and administration was superb and our liaison officer was with us throughout the week to check arrangements and sorted out any small issues we had , instantly. The boys had a wonderful week, playing four matches, a catamaran cruise (Tiami) and enjoying the stunning beaches along the west coast of the Island. We are already looking forward to returning. Dealing with a small company which prides itself on detail and looking after the customer made the whole trip much easier than some of my previous sports tour handlers!
