    Our Bowls Club spent 5 days / 4 nights on a Tour to Worcester in September. All the arrangements were made by Bowling Tours....who were friendly, helpful and very efficient, taking great care to support me as this was the first Tour I had been responsible for. Answering all my questions and providing excellent advice. Our hotel in Worcester (The Whitehouse) was welcoming and comfortable.....excellent food and friendly staff. A great location to use as a base to play matches against local Clubs. Our group, of just 24 members, had a great time - and the amazing weather enabled us to enjoy some of the sights of Worcester in our free time.... Thank You !

    Thank you Bowling Tours for arranging our hotel in Cornwall. 40 of us stayed at the Esplanade Hotel in Newquay for 5 nights. The staff were extremely helpful, all the rooms were excellent, the food was of a very high quality and the entertainment first rate. Well done Bowling Tours this is the second year you have catered for us admirably.

    We have just returned from a four-day tour organised by Bowling Tours. We stayed at the Queen's Hotel in Paignton which was an excellent hotel - great food and entertainment and the staff couldn't do enough to help - we highly recommend it. The coach and driver were very good. There was good communication with Kahing and the team at Bowling Tours which helped make the whole weekend go very smoothly.
