the best cricket holidays and tours, just for you
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
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.
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!
Absolutely fantastic. The weather was great and Jolly beach was wonderful. We had a great time at the cricket and the hotels and great tour management made for an unforgettable holiday. In fact it was that good Rossina attended the 3rd day of the St Lucia test. Many thanks and look forward to going again for the cricket in 4 years time. In fact we can't wait to go back hence the enquiry for Blue Waters Resort.

Pulling the metaphorical flag down on the ICT WI extravaganza 2019. Thanks as always to Sara, Gary and Richard for such wonderful organisation. Great to meet friends old and new and looking forward to seeing some of you again in NZ & SA.
Andrew & Alyson
I have to say we both had the most amazing time ,in fact I'm struggling to get over it. We were really well looked after by International Cricket Tours and would certainly book with you again.
Claire and I had a wonderful time on our first tour, thanks to Richard and all the rest of the ICT guys for making it so enjoyable. Hope to see you on a future one

David and Michele Gray home safely. Thanks to Gary and Richard for a wonderful time. We met so many great people who made us feel so welcome on our first trip, thank you to everyone in particular Frank and Rossina. We shall return !
David and Michele Gray
Thank you, and the team, for all the excellent arrangements in Antigua. The hotel was very satisfactory and the various activites were extremely enjoyable. Dominic, who stayed at Ocean Point, was always available and helped in no small way to make the tour a great experience. This was the first tour with you and if we venture forth again it will certainly be with ICT. Meanwhile I will spread the word in the West Country and on the County Ground at Taunton and hope that more will come from this part of the world in future tours. Once again many thanks for a great tour.

Absolutely fantastic tour in Barbados. The little touches and the personalisation made it even better. The group that we were in were fantastic, we had so many laughs. Dom was brilliant and we honestly couldn't recommend you enough! Let's hope for a better result in st Lucia. 🏏
Thank you Sara Dom & Gary for making this a truly memorable experience for us as newbies. Superb organization. We hope to join you again one day.
We are going to be the last ones at time out today so feeling pretty sad. ☹️. We go home Monday after an amazing holiday experience. Thankyou so much for looking after us Sara, dom and Gary. We hope to see you again as we've got "the bug". It was very well organised. I'm going to leave the group now. Thanks again.

Sitting in the departure lounge at Barbados airport we are reluctantly leaving the island and the group. Thanks to Sara Gary and Dom for a truly memorable holiday. Relieved to see a mini revival in the second test after yet another batting collapse for all of you enjoying the delights of Antigua. Geoff & Janet PS see you in Capetown hopefully 👍
Geoff & Janet
It’s not every day you get meet and chat to Sir Richie Richardson Lady Richardson, Sir Viv Richards, Andy Roberts, Geoffrey Dijon, Mr Baptiste all on the same day - Ansolutely Brilliant.I also won a raffle prize and nearest the pin 👍👍👍😄

Thanks to all @ ICT, absolutely fantastic time in Barbados, first class attention from Gary @ Accra Beach. Wish we were off to Antigua, but work beckons. Sara, ICT are an amazing tour company to travel with, thanks for a wonderful time, Deana and Simon
Deanna & Simon
We have had a great time and have no regrets booking with ICT. As first timers one is always concerned about the company being used but we had no cause for concern. We will definitely do another tour and will have no hesitation in recommending you to others in our club Thanks Geoff & Janet
Geoff & Janet
Dom, thanks for all your assistance during this trip. It has been a pleasure to meet you and you really have gone the extra mile with all your knowledge/advice. Look forward to meeting up on another tour in the future. Have fun in Antigua. Cheers, Mark
Thanks for looking after us Dom. It's been a pleasure to get to know you! Enjoy the rest of your trip and maybe I'll see you in cape town in the winter all being well!
Superb, thanks guys and thanks for making our Barbados tour excellent. Dom, you looked after us Time Outers brilliantly.
Sara, Garry, Richard,Dom Thank you Sorry we missed the drinks A big thank you for the highlight of 2018! One of our best holidays ever in Sri Lanka - great cricket, fantastic organisation and Garry and Richard were wonderful company. We would have come to WIndies but I am ‘retiring’ and need to finish off work - But - definitely coming to South Africa - and then Sri Lanka again and have recruited others who want to come with us (with you). Have a great Christmas and a wonderful new year

2nd timer and this time on my own. What was I worried about? WE had a ball a great group of people on the ODI trip. Thanks ICT for organising so professionally and looking after us. Excellent team in country. See you in the Caribbean 2019 for another Jolly Up.
You could not wish for a better organised tour than those from ICT. The small group size makes for fantastic interaction between group members. The team in Sr Lanka were just fantastic. It's a brilliant mix of cricket, tourism, fun and banter from start to finish. As with most things, the more you commit yourself to have fun, the more fun you will have. A lot of the group were 'serial tourists' and have used ICT before but if it's your first time or your umpteenth time. you join as strangers but leave as friends. And as for Gary...!!!!
Our trip to Sri Lanka was fabulous. The hotels were great with the highlight being the Tea Trails. We wanted to pass on how wonderful our driver/guide Niruth Fernando was throughout our trip. He was knowledgeable, punctual and able to to explain the culture and current affairs. He became a friend and we even went to his house to meet his family and drink tea. He is a credit to Butterlflys and we would recommend him without question. We absolutely loved Sri Lanka and the cricket was brilliant.
Andrew & Trudy
Six am and back home on a dark, frosty Worcestershire morning. Was it all a dream? Thanks everyone for your company over the past couple of weeks. Gary, Richard and Sara - I really appreciate all your thoughtful planning, organisation and leadership. Another brilliant tour, always great fun. ICT seems to reach the parts that others miss! The cricket and the results were pretty memorable too. Enjoy Colombo and safe travels all.
The sun sets on our final night in Sri Lanka. Gary & Richard, thanks for all the banter, amusement and efficiently herding us around!! We’ve had a great time, met some lovely people and a series win in the bag! Enjoy the final test whilst we’ll be shivering in England. Hopefully South Africa next.
Don & Christine
Big Thanks to Sara, Gary and Richard plus everyone at Butterflies. Had a great time and great to catch up with all the ‘regulars’ again and great to meet some new folks along the way too. See you all in WI, NZ, SA or beyond

Now we’ve landed safely back in England we wanted to say a big thank you to the ICT team for organising such a fantastic trip for us. In particular thanks to Gary for his marvellous hospitality at the Calamander.

Overall a great time in a lovely country - many thanks to everyone for their part in such a successful trip.

Gary, I think I can finally express my appreciation for all you have done for me over the last week. You have been a fabulous host and great company. My thanks to you, Richard, Sara and everyone for making this my inaugural cricket tour such a hoot. Your hosting skills are superb and its really not your fault that you are not female and sport hot pants! Really great fun all round and I fear you might see me on future tours!
Bye bye Galle! It’s been a blast! A win and four straight days of cricket with no stops for rain! Enjoy the rest of the tour all of you and thanks for your company 👍🏻🏏

Looking at Sri Lanka but deffo up for West Indies in March next year once the dates come out. Speak soon and safe journey.
