Cricket Testimonials

 
3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2They are real team. We received emails from a number of the staff and they are all on the ball. We have been on cricket tours with them before and will use them again. We always tell our friends and family about the fantastic times we have on the tours and recommend LWTL if they are considering a sports watching tour.

Barbara Evans‎

 

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2I would like to thank Mike and Patrick for a trouble free visit to the West Indies all the arrangements went to plan. Apart from trying to convince the seating manager that the seats at the Sir Vivian Richards stadium in Antigua did not exist. This was not an inconvenience more a funny diversion(the seats are on the plan they must exist). But no not your fault and thank you very much I can recommend you firm to anyone and by the way already have. Hope Mike and Patrick get home save as we did.

‎Phil Hairsine‎

 

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Traveled to SA for Cricket, very well organised, everything as we expected, from initial contact until our host seeing us off to the airport at the end of the tour. Brett our host was excellent in organisation, dealing with issues a genuine great guy! will be using LWL again!

Colin Hutchinson

 

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Another memorable tour and we even manage to win a T20 game. Everything was fine and would like to thank Patrick for his attentiveness and help during the tour.

Roger

 

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Jon & I had a fantastic time in Antigua. Thanks to your efforts we could not have been happier with things – as a ‘return client’ I would not have booked with you again if my previous tour with you to south Africa had not also been a success! All the best

Regards, Neil & Jon

 
3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2James, Matthew and myself thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Antigua with LWTL’s and only wish we had been able to continue to Barbados for the T20’s!

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Firstly, I just wanted to thank you personally for our recent holiday with your company. Denise and I had a real blast and will definitely be doing something else with you in the future, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole break, especially the Cricket. We met some great people and have special fond memories of meeting you and your lovely wife and children. Well done to you and your team for organising a wonderful holiday.

Paul and Denise

 
3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2I loved everything about the tour, had a fantastic time that exceeded my expectations. Will definitely use “Living with the Lions” again.

Simon

 
3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Just a note to say what a superb tour Brett Lingley hosted for Living With The Lions in Durban and Cape Town. An absolute pleasure and, by chance, two great Test matches which will rank among the all-time classics. Durban’s Hilton Hotel was fabulous, Cape Town’s City Lodge served its purpose… transport and internal flights excellent thanks to LWTL! Evening meals in Durban (Moyo in Ushaka, Butcher Boys in Florida Road) and Cape Town (Quay Four on the Waterfront) were excellent, showing great local knowledge. So too the Christmas lunch in Ballito and New Year do at the Five Flies in Cape Town were brilliant too. Please pass on my compliments and make sure everyone at Living With The Lions gives themselves a pat on the back. I’ll be back for the Ashes.”

Neal Collins – Evening Standard Sports Editor (tour to South Africa 2009/10)

 

3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2Phil & I had a truly fantastic and memorable time in South Africa. The whole experience was brilliant from start to finish – the location, the hotel, the cricket and finally the safari at Pilansberg were all tremendous. It was a real pleasure meeting you and we would like to thank you for your excellent hosting of the events whilst we were in Cape Town. I hope you receive similar mails of support and congratulation from other clients as you deserve it – I know from experience that events like this don’t just simply happen as if by magic; they take a great deal of organisation from start to end. So, it is all credit to you and all the other people involved at LWTL for putting a package together that was so enjoyable. From the moment I enquired about the tour through the booking process and onto the tour itself I have always felt fully confident that you would all deliver consistently high levels of service and my initial thoughts that this would be the case turned out to be spot on. So, thank-you to all of you at LWTL from both of us for making this a trip that will live in the memory forever.”

Neil

 
3rd & 4th Test Tour quotemarks2I have been really impressed with your company and to be honest using a new company is always a little worrying but you have just exceeded all expectations. They are all still talking about the trip it has been a very memorable event.”
