Edwin Doran Sports Tours

What will students see and do?

Edwin Doran Sports Tours is a leading school sports tour operator, with offices in London, Manchester, Cape Town and Pretoria, and partners in Australia, Canada, Argentina, Chile, the Middle East and the Far East. The company specialises in international sports tours for schools.

Wherever you’d like to train or play, and no matter where you are, with Edwin Doran Sports Tours the world is your oyster. The company has taken Australians to Argentina, Chileans to New Zealand and Kiwis to the USA!

Using the website, you can plan your school trip ideas by location or preferred sport. If it’s an England cricket tour you’re after, then students will be able to test their skills in the birthplace of cricket and soak up its rich history with a Lords Cricket ground tour. If you’d like to book a UK school trip or school trips to London, you’ll be able to find suitable sports tours all over the country.

Would you like to book school trips abroad? Take your England cricket tour to South Africa. Most games with your well-matched hosts are followed by a ‘braai’, a traditional barbeque. Your trip can be tailored with exciting excursions set against breathtaking, rugged scenery. You’ll discover netball, football, hockey, rugby and water polo sports tours to South Africa.

Thinking of heading to Spain? Edwin Doran hosts incredible football trips and unmissable Barcelona football stadium tours. If a tennis world tour is perfect for your school, then Spain’s wonderful climate – particularly towards the south in Estepona – is an ideal year-round destination for your school tennis tour. Rugby school tours are also available, with a variety of destinations including Asia, Africa, Europe and more.

Edwin Doran Sports Tours was launched as one of the first operators of its kind back in 1974, and quickly became a leading brand in sports travel around the world. The man himself, Edwin Doran, founded the company after escaping the bureaucratic working conditions of an insurance firm for the free and expansive travel business. He injected a passion for sport that’s a defining feature of the organisation to this day.
