Warm hospitality
High standard opposition
Incredible sightseeing and excursions


For sheer diversity India is hard to beat. As a destination it will both move and enthral you. The fascinating culture, cuisine, colourful hosts and spectacular sights make a tour to India an experience you will never forget. Where else can you visit magnificent temples & monuments, ride elephants, go on a tiger safari and still have a chance to relax on a golden beach at the end of the tour?

India is truly a destination of contrast. Poverty lives alongside incredible wealth and it is not unusual to see a camel pulling a cart down the street, cows roaming wild along the streets and a family of pigs making themselves comfortable on a street corner. In amongst this chaos beautifully dressed women in colourful saris lead their impeccably dressed children to school and on every spare piece of parkland you will see a cricket match.

The warmth and hospitality of the people is second to none and coupled with the culture, sights, sounds and smells of this amazing places – you truly could not find a more interesting and enthralling destination.

Cricket is the most popular sport in India and the best time to tour is between October & April. The traditional winter sports of netball, football and hockey are also played to a high standard all over the country between April & September.

We had a wonderful time and will be recommending the tour and LWTL to other schools on our circuit. The LWTL representatives in Sri Lanka were outstanding and could not have been more helpful they made the tour for us! The Indian fixtures were wonderful and the hosts couldn’t have done more to make the fixtures run smoothly or help us in any way. They were so pleased to be playing us and are desperate for more school rugby tours. For a school on our circuit and level (mid range ability) the matches were competitive and very worthwhile.
