YOUNG & FRESH OUTLOOK
Your own Living With The Lions contact handles all aspects of your tour – initial meetings, quotations, presentations, operations and on-tour support. As a small team we can make quick decisions and pride ourselves on providing a fast & personalised response any queries you may have. We are willing to do things differently if you prefer and are happy to consider any new ideas.
Each of our team members has gained valuable experience at respected companies. Rachel with Gullivers Sports Travel for 13 years, Tom at Edwin Doran for 5 years, Joanna at Gullivers for 8 years, Carrie with Bundu Bashers in South Africa for 10 years and then Edwin Doran for 3 yrs and John has been organising music tours overseas for the last 22 years. As a keen sportsman himself, our MD Patrick Arnold is actively involved in the schools department and loves to get involved at all levels of organisation and implementation.
Over the years we have built up long lasting relationships with our hosts and ground agents overseas. Their ability to arrange access to top class venues and meet ex-internationals, arrange competitive fixtures, organise musical concerts and provide the all-important local knowledge, makes them invaluable to the touring process. Their support, when faced with the unexpected, also gives you peace of mind knowing that you will be well looked after throughout the tour.
With each tour that we create, new ideas and experiences are added. We can include anything you like – from a basic weekend away through to elephant polo in front of the Taj Mahal. The service you receive from Living With The Lions is bespoke and tailored to your team. You chose your own tour merchandise, sightseeing experiences, music repertoire and standard of opponent. We ensure it all gels together and that every detail has been thought through.
PERSONALISED WEBSITE AND BLOG
We have our own full-time graphic designer working in-house who will create a dedicated microsite and blog just for your tour. This is constantly updated with the latest tour information. The site is instantly accessible to staff, parents and pupils alike. The blog is a great way to stay in touch with the folks back home whilst on tour and let them know how you are doing.
