What some of our clients had to say...
Finally getting around to sending you some feedback on the Red Dragon tour to Japan.
In one word....Brilliant....your team of Angharad and local reps did you proud. "Boobies" has become a folk legend in her own right and will forever be part of Strachan touring history.
The warmth of the welcome wherever we went was very touching and sincere. Japan ,its people its countryside its players were the stars of the show. I am still in awe of their litter free culture . I did not see a single piece of discarded paper/gum. Remarkable!
Having promised to keep in touch with many new friends , in the mad rush at the airport I mislaid and missed getting e mail details.
Do you have contact details that we could follow up on the promises made to "keep in touch"?
Thanks once again for organising the tour with such professionalism. Sadly we missed out on the silverware. Next time!
Here's hoping that we remain fit enough to join Strachan tours in the near future.

Dear Jim and team, As you know I’ve been on at least 5 tours with you and all been great. However, the Japan RWC was fantastic. Thanks to all of you especially Angharad, Lowri and Ito, and of course my fellow tourists who all made it a great experience. I’ll be joining you for the Lions and probably before.
Good Afternoon Angharad
I trust you have now recovered from your marathon trip to Japan and hopefully your back has also improved Rather belatedly I am writing to congratulate you on being the best tour guide I have experienced!! Well done and please let Jim know and also for the organisation of the trip as a whole .
One of the highlights was your fantastic whistle when you wanted our attention .Whistling has never been my forte but I do have other attributes.
Hi Jim and Angharad
Just a brief note to thank you for organising a near perfect trip. All transfers , flights and hotels went to plan
On behalf of Ken and I
Well done and sincere thanks
Just as the dust settles after the World Cup in Japan I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for an absolutely magnificent trip. You are aware that I was on the Red Dragon Trip 1 for the first three group games following Wales and had a fabulous time from start to finish. The trip included everything and more that one would expect from a visit to Japan viz Hiroshima, Bullet train, Sumo wrestling, Geisha , Tokyo etc. Whilst I have come to expect a great trip ( after Argentina last. Year) with the attention to detail that always seems to be included , this trip was something special.
I can appreciate that a lot of research goes into every trip but the finer detail included in this trip was outstanding. The order of the trip was extremely well thought out to provide a superb traveller experience from start to finish. Looking back I fully appreciate the effort you and your staff put into organising and delivering such a magnificent experience for us . I feel I must pay tribute to Angharad who was totally outstanding in every way. She tended to our needs from day to day, anticipated events and made sure our experiences were always excellent. She was very proactive from day one and was on call 24/7 showing remarkable resilience, patience and empathy with all travellers not just on Red Dragon 1 tour. She worked ever so hard throughout and deserves a medal !! Even if it was just for putting up with me!!!
Sincerely, many thanks to you all from a very appreciative tourist.
All the best,
Now that the dust has finally settled and the events of the Rugby World Cup are over we feel it is high time to write to you to thank you for such an amazing experience in Japan. Angharad and the team really pulled out all the stops to make the tour such an enjoyable adventure. We met so many like minded people who travelled with Strachan, now friends who we regularly keep in contact with. Three fantastic weeks of fun and laughter in an amazing country. As a result so many of us have signed up together to go to South Africa in 2021.
Looking forward to travelling with you again.

Just sat in Bangkok departures. Slight delay.
I can’t express how enjoyable the whole tour was. Even the delay turned out to be fun.
Your professionalism is exemplary. Both you and Princes Lowry are a great double act.
Thank you very much

Please pass on our thanks to the whole Strachan team did a great trip to RWC in Japan.
Just arrived back in Heathrow so short trip home.
Hotel, the tailor made itinerary, the flights and of course the support of Angharad and Lowri was fantastic.
Thanks again, look forward to seeing what you can offer for the Lions now.

Italy v Wales - Rome 2019
Dear Strachan Sports Travel,
I hope you had a safe flight home, and all was well. This is just a short message of thanks & appreciation for everything we had on the 20 wonderful days we had together (even if you missed some of it).
I knew I would have a good time but never in my wildest dreams I would have such a fantastic time. The team you have put together is so professional and friendly that everything was great. Angharad was wonderful, dealt with all problems given to her, always smiling unless an hotel upset her! It so wonderful in these days that a successful company can manage to have a team so friendly and people orientated such as Strachan, and I have always said that is not by accident, but by choosing the right people and good management, well done Jim. Thanks again, and I will be with you again, God willing in the future.
Thanks so much,
David (Dai) Phelps
Wales Summer Tour to Argentina - June 2018

Many thanks again,

Wales Summer Tour to Argentina - June 2018
We would like to say a big thank you to you and all at Strachan travel for organising our lion's tour to New Zealand in June/July 2017 we had a wonderful time. The travel and site seeing trips which were included exceeded our expectations, from the hot geysers in Rotorua to the deep snow and Fiord at Mount Cook. We covered so many miles in the time we were there but the organisation was great and made the travelling easy.
We would like to say a big thank you to Angharad who took control of any situation that arose efficiently and was an excellent courier and travelling companion keeping us on track, nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to travel with Strachan Travel again and would recommend you to anyone thinking of booking this type of tour in the future. This is our 3rd Lion's tour with Strachan Travel and each one has exceeded our expectations.
Looking forward to the next adventure.

British and Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand - August 2017
"We've just arrived back home after our short extension to the Kiwi Classic Tour.
We just want to say a big thank you for a brilliant trip. Everything was so well organised and planned. Even the window seats for my wife on the flights! A special mention of Paul our guide, he was excellent and great company too. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and his presence enhanced the enjoyment of the trip. Thanks again

"Just returned from The AMAZING Silver Fern tour to New Zealand to watch the British Lions. Had an excellent time with Angharad looking after us. The trips in between the matches were fantastic. Strachan Sports travel arranged plenty of things included in the price which made this an amazing holiday. All we had to find was the beer money!!!! This really was a VFM tour, roll on the next one.

"Dear Jim, the high level of organisation and quality of accommodation on your Pacific Islands tour were complemented by the excellent rugby experience provided. It was obvious that you are held in high regard by the regular tourers and I certainly agree with their opinions. You dealt with everything thrown at you with an assured calmness and efficiency! I certainly hope to join you on next year’s trip to Argentina. Thanks again for a wonderful tour."
"Dear Jim, it was good to meet you and may I take this opportunity to thank you for a very enjoyable 20-day tour to the Pacific Islands. I will have many lasting memories to cherish."
