Experience Travel Group has opened bookings for its Curious Travellers Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka
The â€˜tour' enables travellers to combine a stylish and tailor-made holiday to Sri Lanka with the opportunity to watch Joe Root's England team, who are playing Test Matches in the beautiful and enthralling locations of Galle and Colombo in March 2020.
Wanderlust cricket-loving travellers will be bowled over by the range of experiences offered by the sun-kissed island in addition to watching their England heroes, who won 3-0 on their last visit to Sri Lanka in November 2018.
Hotels and flights are expected to be snapped up quickly after the tour dates were confirmed last Thursday by the England Cricket Board, with Galle, home to one of the world's most picturesque cricket grounds, hosting the First Test between March 19-23.
Colombo, the capital and the heartbeat of the island, will stage the Second Test at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium between March 27-31.
Curious Travellers Cricket Tour packages arrange tickets for any number of days and for any of the travelling party that want to attend each Test. Lunches, refreshments and other extras are also arranged - including occasional close-of-play drinks because when the cricket stops the fun doesn't.
Aside from the cricket, intrepid travellers can design a bespoke personal guided holiday to immerse in Sri Lankan culture. Take the opportunity to see glorious UNESCO World Heritage sites (there are seven on the island), get up close with the local wildlife, visit the famous tea plantations or explore hidden gems drawing on the local knowledge of your guide.
Sam Clark, co-founder and managing director of Experience Travel Group, said: "The Curious Travellers Cricket Tour is a wonderful opportunity to mix seeing this beautiful island with some top-class international sport in style.
"We know there are cricket lovers who've always wanted to do an overseas tour but want to take the opportunity to see a new country and have a brilliant holiday at the same time. This is a great opportunity to do that in a location that offers so much.
"Our trips are designed for couples, families or small groups of friends that want to have a personalised holiday that is totally unique to them. Being able to go the cricket as well just heightens the experience."
Experience Travel Group, which has an unrivalled knowledge of the island and the best contacts, has reserved rooms at some of the best boutique hotels in Galle and Colombo for would-be travellers.
Flights to Sri Lanka from the UK, visas, personalised trips, accommodation and chauffeur-driven travel on the island will be arranged by Experience Travel Group to make this the best and most relaxed holiday of your lifetime.
