We’ve been hosting cricket tours to all the major cricketing nations for three decades. As far as we’re concerned, there are few finer things in life than heading to the most exciting destinations to watch world-class sport in the ultimate comfort on a luxury cricket holiday.
We consider ourselves the experts when it comes to luxury cricket travel; we first started chartering private tours to the West Indies to follow England thirty years ago, and we haven’t looked back since.
Spectate offers the ultimate personalised cricket holiday to every major destination on the cricket map.
Each Spectate tour includes a range of excursions, functions and at least one State of Play evening.
Guests are joined by a panel of former international cricket legends to hold court on everything cricket on the tour and off the tour (and quite a bit beyond the pitch!).
Previous guests and hosts on Spectate tours have included:
With so maybe expert hosts on your cricket tour, you’re guaranteed to be in safe hands. Jonathan Trott will be joining us on our cricket tour of South Africa.
Our cricket tours offer the ultimate sporting experience. Our team, who spend all year cultivating the best relationships with local partners and organisers, tailor-make every element of your international tour, from handpicking exciting excursions to choosing the perfect luxury hotels for our clients.
We’ll provide a sample itinerary for a snapshot of what your holiday could include – and from there it’s all about what you would like for your perfect break.
We can charter private flights, while our close partnerships with the top airlines and hotel groups ensure our guests experience only the best. Whether it’s a compact seven-night holiday or an indulgent six-week itinerary following a whole tour, we’ll put together the perfect holiday, and include a range of experiences, functions and adventures along the way.
What's more, every tour has a dedicated Tour Manager on hand to take care of every detail, so all you have to do is sit back and watch the action unfold in style.
In addition to guaranteed premium match tickets, luxury accommodation and all flights and transfers, your Spectate cricket tour will feature a dedicated tour manager and a Celebrity Host - some of our previous hosts have included Jonathan Trott, David Lloyd, Allan Lamb and David Gower.
Our cricket holidays are all about the experience. We’re not in the business of merely selling cricket trips: we specialise in expertly crafted luxury cricket experiences that take you beyond the boundaries of the top international cricket matches. Each of our cricket holidays is completely personalised, so we pack in sightseeing, experiences and excursions to form the ultimate holiday. All our holidays include guaranteed tickets.
Due to the nature of obtaining cricket tickets, we advise that you’ll receive your match tickets a minimum of two days before departure. If you haven’t received your tickets or if you have any queries or concerns ahead of departure, please contact our Sports Travel Specialists as soon as possible.
Yes - all of our cricket tours feature a dedicated manager and a former professional or international player as Tour Host. So, you'll be accompanied to and from the cricket, spend time with our celebrity guest at the match, and be escorted on all your excursions and experiences.
With 30 years (not out) of creating cricket holidays, we’ve learned a thing or two about the perfect spots at the top grounds around the world. From experience – both our own and that of our loyal repeat clients – we’ve learned where best to stand, sit and everything in between for getting the very best views. We always aim for seats behind the bowler’s arm, and we offer hospitality suites with air-conditioning and refreshments as standard on our cricket tours.
That's up to you! We can tailor your cricket holiday to include as much or as little of the cricket as you'd like - so perhaps one full Test Match, a handful of ODIs, or even just a day or two at the stadium. We also offer pre- and post-tour holiday extensions, so we can offer your dream getaway - enhanced by cricket! With access to the Inspiring Travel Company's luxury portfolio, we boast over 40 years of experience in destinations around the world, and first-hand insight into the very best luxury hotels. Whether it's a safari in South Africa or an extended trip to Mauritius or the Maldives, let us take care of everything.
