TESTIMONIALS


We have built our tours around our bowlers' feedback and without it we would not have the customer base we have today. Here's what they have to say...


HARPENDEN BOWLS CLUB
HOTEL VILA GALE AMPALIUS - VILAMOURA

Tony Redford (Group Leader)

"In 2012, I was a member of the 'Bowling Abroad Tour' organised St Albans & District touring party to the Algarve, based at Pedras da Rainha. Following an extremely successful tour, in 2013 I asked Ron Scott to arrange a Bowling holiday for my club. We have now enjoyed four years of tours at Dom Jose Hotel, Quarteira for two years and Pedras da Rainha for one year and last year Ampalius in Vilamoura. A fifth has tour has been arranged this year based again at the Ampalius Hotel in Vilamoura. My experience of Bowling Abroad has been one of first class service providing for our every need in producing a superb holiday for all! Tony Redford, Harpenden Bowling Club."

"Hi Ron, We all arrived home safe and sound after a superb Bowling Holiday in the Algarve thanks to your brilliant organization.

Would you please quote me for 20/24 Bowlers at the Jupiter Hotel"

However it is not just the games, it includes all transport, hotel accomodation, hire of woods (if required) presentation gifts on the last night and non bowling excursions; we don't have to worry about anything. a very carefree 8 days. We go away in April each year which is very good preparation for the beginning of the out-door season as all games are"

Witterings & District Bowls Club
Hotel Jupiter, Praia da Rocha, Algarve

Ros Hanbury (Vice-chairman)

"A big thank you to Ron Scott and his team - Tony and Gill Brimley for organising our bowls tour this year to Praia de Rocha. The Hotel Jupiter surprised us all in its high level of excellence, from the buffets, the rooms and most importantly the attentiveness of all its staff. The Bowling Abroad team looked after us from the minute we arrived at the airport until the minute we left. We enjoyed 3 games of bowling with 1 unfortunately cancelled due to the heavy rain but we were welcomed at their club for lunch, after spending the morning in the shopping mall! All the clubs we visited extended such a warm welcome and we look forward to returning at some point. We had a surprise visit from Sarah our rep from last year, when we visited Spain on our tour. The club enjoyed that tour so much that we requested one for this year, hence our visit to Portugal. So again many thanks to Bowling Abroad for arranging the two tours for us"

Dolphin Indoor Bowls Club
Hotel Jupiter, Praia da Rocha, Algarve

Brian Collins (Group Leader)

"Hi Ron, On behalf of all our Dolphin group can I thank you for organising such a comprehensive, well organised and enjoyable bowls holiday last week. From the coach driver to the fabulous Jupiter hotel, Antonio and his staff in the restaurant, I could eat for England there, the housemaids, the reception and bar staff to all the members of the clubs at which we played they were all top notch - thanks to them all. As for you, it has been a pleasure dealing with you for the past two trips, it won’t be long before I am in touch again, starting to organise next years. Well done Ron, but to top it all the way you directed the hurricane which hit the Algarve on Saturday and Sunday keeping it away from where we played and blew the clouds away to provide sun - that’s impressive !! Regards Brian Collins and all the Dolphin group."
