Q: Will we have spare time in each city? There are things I want to see that aren't in the tour.

Q: Why are there no meals included with Escorted Sports Tours?
A: In our experience, one of the highlights of being on holidays is experiencing the small cafes and restaurants with great food and really diving into the culture of the city and country you're in. Just being a local! We also noticed that when breakfast is included on a tour, it's some dry toast which was made before you left Australia, with cereal we don't really like, served while you would rather be asleep. Let us point you in the right direction for some good local food, while you don't have to pay for breakfasts you don't eat.
Q: Do I have to participate in all the activities on an Escorted Sports Tour?
A: No, if you would rather not participate in an event, you are welcome to make your own arrangments. Again, we are more than happy to assist you with making arrangements and point out other activities available to you. Unfortunately, no discount or refund will be available for portions of any tour that are not utilised.
