I have been very lucky to have been part of the sports travel industry for many years – too many to mention! This has given me the opportunity to live in South Africa and Australia and work on some of the greatest sporting events in the world.
My highlights would have to be my first Rugby World Cup in 1991 (I was very, very young!), the Rugby World Cup in Australia in 2003 and surviving the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in 2018. To be honest, there are too many to mention!
Travel is my passion and although I am not a particularly sporty person – more of a watcher than a doer – I’m fortunate that this industry allows me to enjoy both!
It’s great to be working with Venatour in their Schools and Clubs department creating amazing tours and memories for others.
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.
