A cricket tour to Barbados is a must for any cricket enthusiast! The Caribbean is renowned for it's passion for cricket, which is more like a way of life then a sport. The island itself is paradise with golden sandy beaches and clear blue seas. There are some unforgettable activities to try during your tour such as swimming with turtles, an island safari, rum tours and catamaran trips!
"The tour was excellent and the service from Burleigh Travel throughout was exceptional. The cricket was great and the Bajan's look to beat you on both the field and in the bar! The Catamaran cruise was the highlight of the tour and everyone who goes to Barbados should experience this, it is the most relaxing experience one could ask for with good music, food and drink. I genuinely believe the Catamaran makes the tour. Harbour lights and Oistins fish market on Friday nights are also excursions that are a must." - Liverpool University cricket tour to Barbados
