As an Aussie, I have a great love of all things sport. Cricket, Rugby, Formula 1, AFL, Football, Golf – if it’s on the box I’ll watch it – beer in hand of course! But if I had to choose one, Rugby League would take top billing – despite being involved in Union for around 40 years…
It was this passion for sport and my background in tourism which led me into the Sports Travel industry when I uprooted
to the UK in 2004. In that time I’ve been fortunate enough to “work” on the odd Ashes, Rugby World Cup and British and Irish Lions tours, Six Nations matches, and even a weekend in southern France for the Monaco Grand Prix.
I join Venatour with my flight experience and expertise, in particular co-ordinating group travel, and look forward to contributing to many a successful tour in the future.
Barbara and I had a wonderful weekend in Dublin with Venatour. We have been to Dublin many times for Six Nations matches but never with Venatour. The hotel was ideal because of it's nearness to the ground and numerous restaurants. We found our tour guides very friendly and helpful. Our fellow supporters were also very friendly and pleasant. A thoroughly enjoyable trip despite the result! We hope to travel with Venatour to future matches.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for organising our Rugby tour this year. Everything worked as planned and we all had a fantastic time. The hotel was just at the level required, bar below was enjoyed by all. Breakfast at the hotel followed by pasta at both the clubs and Pizza on Saturday night all delicious. Your associates on the ground in Italy where very nice and helpful and on time. Our hosts at both clubs welcomed us and the boys played some great rugby at a very competitive level. As you know the success of a tour is really the bonding experience that happens in all directions and I have to say this tour achieved it. Smiley tired happy faces left Gatwick on our return with a great appreciation for Rugby and its Family. Well done and thankyou from all of us at Chobham RFC Colts for helping to make this tour a success.
