Touring is paramount in the sport of cricket, with national teams almost constantly on tour or hosting a touring side; cricket tours are very much part of school touring cycles and very much part of what we do here at Living With The Lions.
We offer tours to all the main cricketing destinations from the Caribbean to the Indian sub-continent and from Australasia to parts of Europe; whatever the standard, time of year and touring budget we are here to help with a suitable destination. The most popular time to tour with a cricket side is either pre-season at Easter or post season during the summer holidays.
With Cricket heavily weather dependant, it is not surprising that the popular destinations are also popular holiday destinations. A cricket tour with Living With The Lions gives students the chance to combine a good level of competitive sport with some idyllic destinations and beaches.
DAVE HARDY – Colchester Royal Grammar School. Cricket to St Lucia, March/April 2018
I just wanted to thank you and LWTL’s team and to let you know that we had a brilliant time in St Lucia, the boys gained such a lot in terms of cultural and sporting experiences and thoroughly enjoyed themselves on and off the field.”.
BRUCE RUSSELL – Fettes College, Cricket tour to Sri Lanka, March 2018

SIMON SUTCLIFFE – Merchant Taylors Crosby, Cricket tour to Sri Lanka October 2017
Overall a very worthwhile trip. Grounds were excellent. Great for the boys to play on two test match venues and other nice venues. The boys really enjoyed it and the parents who came with us all gave me positive feedback. ” .
MARK RIDLEY – Beechwood Park Prep School, Barbados Cricket Tour July 2017
From the time we decided to tour, LWTL have been in constant and instant contact with us and we have thrown you quite a few curve balls which you have dealt with incredibly well enabling us to have everything we have asked for. In addition to the travel for the boys there and back you have also facilitated the several changes to flight returns without a problem. Providing two fixtures on each day amidst the other tournaments and league fixtures going on cannot have been easy and all fixtures worked really well, enabling all our cricketers to play the maximum amount of games, with only one half of one game cancelled due to rain, you even arranged the weather! Fortunately, none of our players were ill or injured and we were always able to field full sides due to your organisation of extra players for us from the opposition teams which made for a very friendly and integrated atmosphere in each game. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any schools who are in touch with us in the future.
JAMES GILCHRIEST – King Edward VI School Stratford Cricket tour to Barbados – April 2017
I found the experience of Barbados as fantastic. Everything rang smoothly whilst we were out there and the tour company were very accomodating in supporting us in any changes which were necessary. The people of Barbados are friendly, kind, and their hopsitality is outstanding. For anyone wishing to do a cricket tour it is a must. The people of Barbados are so passionate about cricket that it rubs off on any tour member whilst out there.
STEVE SCHOFIELD – Maidwell Hall cricket tour to Antigua – March 2017

MR J KENNEDY, Methodist College Belfast, Sri Lanka Tour April 2017.
Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for all your hard work in organising our tour. This was the school’s first overseas cricket tour and so it was very important that it ran smoothly. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you and the itinerary that you put in place for us was excellent. I have already done so and will have no hesitation again in the future recommending LWTL to anyone. If there is anything I can ever do for you please do not hesitate to ask (particularly if it includes a visit to Sri Lanka!!)
