Another excellent tour. Organisationally superb, the team coped amazingly well with all the various challenges a tour of India can create. We felt so well supported regarding transportation, medical needs and accommodation logistics – nothing was too much for the company and their excellent tour managers. The sightseeing opportunities were varied and stunning. Despite the company’s growth, it still feels very personal and it’s great to meet up again with so many old friends and make new ones too!

Brian Maclean

Yet another tour completed with Not Out Travel, brilliant as always, like travelling with family! Great staff who go above and beyond to make the tour memorable. Thank you for a great trip.

Liz & Dave Lynch

We had a fantastic tour, visiting India for the first time. Charlie and his Not Out Travel team are to be congratulated on the first-class arrangements made, working through complex local logistical challenges. At both Ranchi and Dharamshala we had great tickets, comfortable hotels, and efficient transfers. And between tests, an impressive range of sightseeing options were available. We went for the Golden Triangle and Amritsar option, and this was superb.

Not Out Travel really care about their customers, and adopt a hands-on, bespoke approach which differentiates them in this marketplace. This was clearly reflected by the large numbers who were on their tour. Not long to the next away series in the Autumn and it will definitely be with Not Out Travel!

Nigel & Hazel Maxfield

I’ve never been on an organised cricket tour with other people before as I usually book tickets/flights/hotels myself in the past.  So, this was a new experience for me. Charlie came highly recommended by a customer who I met last year, so I decided to take the plunge. I can honestly say I was not disappointed!

The whole process of booking was made very easy by being able to ring and discuss options and tailor my flights to suit me. The sightseeing was organised very well and led fantastically by the amazing tour leaders Andy and Maggi. The seats at the cricket were great. Des the tour leader at the cricket was very helpful in sorting anything that was needed, including extra sightseeing options when the cricket ended early.

As a solo traveller on this occasion, I was a bit apprehensive prior to the trip. However, it was great to meet and bond with everyone in the group. By the end, it was sad to say goodbye to my fellow travellers. I would have no reservations in travelling alone with Not Out Travel again.

Overall, I’d highly recommend travelling with Not Out Travel. It’s been one of the best trips I’ve ever been on!

Pravin Gorajala

Brilliant Tour Managers. 10/10.

David Felton

Booking and arrangements all good, very useful and I really like the pre-travel pack – lots of useful information. An enjoyable tour – everything was so well organised.  Great cricket, and good tour companions.

Alexandra Morley

From leaving Heathrow to returning three weeks later, it went as smoothly as could be expected. Bob, Des, Nick & Carol made sure that everything went smoothly. It was our first time in India was a very enjoyable experience.

Mark & Donna Stevens

Very well organised, personalised trip and a very friendly group – we would definitely recommend Not Out Travel.

Caroline Harrison-Croft & Alan Harrison

We’ve had a superb trip to India and were impressed by the personal level of service throughout. For a relatively young company, Not Out Travel has a very loyal following and it is easy to see why. If you’re wondering whether to go for it or not, just do it!

Siobhan & Matthew Dudding

This was a brilliant tour from the moment that I phoned Charlie and told him the sort of things that I wanted to do. Communication pre-tour was very good & clear. Once we arrived Georgina & James did a fantastic job of ensuring that everyone was included and communicating what was going on, in a relaxed style. I can’t speak highly enough of either of them and they appeared to take everything in their stride which included sorting out trips at short notice when the cricket finished early. Fantastic tour. Probably the best organised tour that I have been on, really enjoyed it.

I would happily recommend Not Out and will use them again as they made me feel like I was a valued customer and took into account my initial requests for sightseeing, rather than offering one option, with a take it or leave it approach. Well done Charlie & the team!

David Payne

Not Out Travel is now the clear cricket tour company of choice.  Their flexibility and willingness to cater for individual needs is incredible and their team of tour managers is easily the most professional in the business, always thinking ahead and anticipating their customers’ needs and wishes.  Nothing is too much trouble, whether you want to fly from a different airport, leave the tour and travel on your own for a while or simply upgrade to a different hotel. This was by far the most enjoyable of our ten England cricket tours to date, with a great sense of camaraderie supported by brilliant organisation.  Dhanyavaad!

Ross & Alison Midgley

Everyone on the tour thought Not Out Travel to be exceptional. I have toured many times since 2004 and have never been with a better organised, highly motivated tour. Bob and Des were simply the best! We were looked after meticulously throughout the tour. I spoke with various other cricket fans who were with other operators, and I have absolutely no doubt that we were fortunate enough to be with the best on tour.

Roy Rosenthal

What a grand tour – shame about the cricket. A huge thanks and congratulations to Not Out Travel for organising the whole event. Not Out have the best team of tour managers bar none. Dharamsala was a particular challenge, but it all seemed to go very smoothly. 10/10!

Richard Brazier

Maybe a young company but has great expertise in satisfying what a cricket enthusiast with an interest in sight-seeing wants.

Mike Turner

My fourth trip with Not Out Travel and I will certainly book again. Also, very flexible with bookings and have the best tour managers around. They always take care of clients and certainly make you feel appreciated. Cricket tours number one choice in my view.

Ray Hutchings

We greatly appreciate the personal touch of Not Out Travel & long may it continue. Watching Test cricket at Dharamshala in the company of fellow enthusiasts is something we will always remember. Thank you.

David & Julia Wilson

Thank you to the Not Out Travel team, a good tour and some good laughs.

Jim Nixon

You know what you are going to get with Not Out.  Prior to booking, choice of departure airports, choice of flights and choice of sightseeing options (including ones not on the itinerary) and ability to talk to the MD about requirements.  Once there, first class tour managers who are very experienced and keen to ensure the punters have a good time.

Geoff Marshall

10/10! I hope that Not Out Travel continues to succeed.

Neil Kerrison

Des & Bob were fantastic, and the event arranged with Marcus Trescothick was superb, we enjoyed the tour a lot!

Shamita Das & John Woodhouse

Thank you Charlie and the team for an excellent tour of India, although the result was not as expected, there’s not a lot you can do about that! We met some lovely people and there was a great atmosphere on the tour, greatly helped by the enthusiasm and hard work of the tour leaders, who were fabulous and made it friendly and fun. Appreciate the flexibility of the Not Out Travel service to adapt the itinerary to our needs and book our own flights on different dates.

Claire & Gary Alderson

The whole (booking) experience is personal letting me choose the flights and accommodation that I want at a reasonable price. This one of the main reasons why I choose Not Out Travel. It’s a long old tour but a fantastic experience and well worth the money.

Andy Briggs

This was my first overseas cricket trip with Not Out Travel. I have been on 5 tours in total and this was by far the best.  Charlie and the team were great throughout and made the trip truly memorable. The entire experience was first class. I would definitely come on future trips with Not Out Travel.

Mohamed Mohamed

10/10. I was very happy with my first visit to India. I would certainly look to use Not Out Travel on future trips.


As first-time travellers with Not Out Travel we were blown away with the efficiency, organisation and friendliness of everyone involved – it felt like family. Looking forward to the next trip!

Annie & Ian Kyzer

We had superb seats, with plenty of space in the stand, the accommodation  in all 4 hotels was very good, the Delhi Shimla and Amritsar sightseeing we all excellent and Nick, Carole and Georgina were all excellent Tour Managers! Very good value for money and overall a very good tour.

Edward MacFetridge

We were very happy with the flexibility in allowing us to design our own arrangements for the first part of the trip, rather than joining in with one of the standard packages. I have been following the England cricket team around the world for more than 30 years, and you have managed to secure the services of the 3 best tour managers I have met in all that time – Nick, Maggie and Bob. Absolutely first class.

Louise Scull

10/10. Kerala was the highlight, I also enjoyed Shimla and the Golden Temple.

Peter Alexander

Not Out Travel provide a personal service setting the standards for the industry which others fail to match.

Bryan Tomalin

Clear new website with individual portal. Maggie is outstanding. One of the best Tour Managers I have come across. Not Out Travel were terrific sorting out missing luggage problems near the end of the trip.

David Bell

The Tour Managers were – as usual – excellent. Although not personally affected, the way they dealt with the lost luggage issues at Delhi was exemplary. The numbers travelling with Not Out Travel speak for themselves… 10/10!

Simon Craig

It was a very well organised tour, the accommodation was good, there were fantastic sightseeing options, and all with excellent tour managers, who went beyond the call of duty to resolve any problems. I would recommend anyone considering a cricket tour to contact Not Out Travel.

Chris Gambrell

We had such a good time, disappointing results didn’t make any difference. We travelled with existing cricket friends and made new ones along the way and got as good a feel for the varied culture of India as we could in just 3 weeks. Thank you all!

Richard & Jenny Packer

An excellent tour over 4 weeks which was a luxury – especially new locations to us in the north of Shimla & Dharamshala.

Sue & Rob Carkett

The tour was well organised and well planned. Whilst disappointing that the 5th Test finished after 3 days a day of sight-seeing was organised for those who wished to take advantage. Our second tour with Not Out Travel and once again we enjoyed meeting new people and catching up with ‘old’ friends from previous tours.

Clive & Ann Parrish

It was great to see so many old friends and to meet a lot of new ones.


Another great tour by Not Out Travel with all the logistical nightmares covered. The flexibility and personal touch is what makes Not Out Travel stand out from other companies. Well done Charlie and his team.

Ian Stone

Charlie was incredibly responsive to email queries and Nick and Carole were incredibly impressive Tour Managers.

Andrew Ryder

A great first trip with Not Out Travel and the service was exactly as I was told it would be by previous travellers. I will be back!

Julian Sampson

Thanks to the Not Out Travel team for putting together a great trip. We have had a fantastic time.

Paul Thompson & Janet Fellows

We had brilliant positions in both matches – possibly the best I’ve experienced anywhere!

Ken Storey

We have always wanted to watch cricket in India. The schedule was exactly what we wanted, with great sightseeing between matches.  It fully lived up to our expectations. Excellent seats and facilities. Much better  seats than I have had going on previous tours with some of your competitors.

Bob Mitchell & Caroline Pegg

Pre-departure arrangements included more help from Not Out Travel than I expected, and in the event everything went perfectly according to plan.

Christopher Dean

I was very happy with all aspects of the tour and the arrangements beforehand.


All information after the inspection visit was well communicated. Useful dashboard and easy to pay. India is a very difficult place for tour organisers, all inevitable issues were dealt with amazingly. Nobody does it better. Fabulous tour.

Richard Winter

Good seats with unexpected hospitality.

Rosemary & Malcolm Taylor

Considering we were at 3 tests, 6 hotels, the golden triangle sightseeing tour and relied on many arrangements over the 4 weeks, I think the organisation and logistics of the Not Out Travel team were first class! Overall, very happy.

Richard Bent

A well organised tour in difficult conditions. Flexibility in adapting advertised tour itineraries a definite plus for Not Out Travel. Thank you Not Out Travel team!

John & Jackie Yeomans

Very enjoyable tour.
