The best range of touring options yet for sport’s oldest international rivalry

July-August-September 2019

A cricket tour with Australian Sports Tours (AST) is about more than just organising your ticket and hotel. It’s about giving you the best cricket and touring holiday experience you could imagine - from start to finish. AST escorted tours feature everything you would expect from a first class international travel experience when it comes to tickets, accommodation, sightseeing and transport, but it is the added extras that sets AST apart from the rest. AST knows what makes a great cricket tour and what inclusions can be added to make this tour your bucket list trip of a lifetime.

Along with AST's experienced and dedicated staff that will be there to assist you every step of the way, you have the unique opportunity to travel with absolute legends of the game, as former Test cricket superstars Merv Hughes, Kerry O’Keeffe, Terry Alderman and Alan Border play host to you throughout your tour.

You'll find a choice of escorted small group tour options with inclusions such as knowledgable and entertaining hosts, transfers, match tickets, sightseeing, dinner engagements with famous cricketing guest speakers, 4-5 star hotel accommodation and Ashes merchandise. In between Tests see some of the UK and Europe’s best sights.

Then there are match packages, which are ideal for the traveller who wants to be more independent, with match tickets and hotel accommodation included.

Ashes Escorted Tours and Match Packages information:

  • Escorted Tours - accompanied by an AST staff member as a Tour Leader at all times and also by a former Test cricket legend as a Tour Host. Match transfers, pre-match briefings, sightseeing and dinner functions are all included.
  • Match Packages - inclusive of match tickets and hotel accommodation, suitable for more independent travellers.

Tour Hosts


Big Merv headlines AST's impressive team of Tour Hosts. As a spearhead of Australia’s back-to-back series wins in England in 1989 & 1993, Merv brings a wealth of knowledge in mastering English conditions - and with his finger still well & truly on Australian cricket’s pulse, his colourful contribution at daily briefings is every bit as insightful as it is entertaining. There are few larger characters in Australian Test Cricket folklore.


Geoff "Swampy" Marsh is one of Australia’s most respected opening batsmen and, more recently, one of its most famous cricketing fathers. A 50-Test veteran and fellow member of the infamous 1989 “worst team ever to tour England” (which won 4-0!), Geoff adds an enormous calibre of expertise to the team of Tour Hosts for 2019. Among many career highlights including his match-winning century in the 1987 World Cup Final, Geoff’s pedigree is etched in Ashes history courtesy of his still unbeaten 329-run opening partnership with Mark Taylor at Trent Bridge.

"Another great trip with AST. Kerry is an excellent host and the crew are all helpful. Richard and I have been on 3 tours with AST and they keep getting better. I can’t wait for the next one."
David Flanders, 2013 Ashes Tours

"What a wonderful experience, the mixture of sport, celebrities, tours and the environment to make friends, made for an exceptional experience."
Dave Maley, 2013 Ashes Tours
