Scenic Tours announces sponsorship of the Ashes

As the official sponsor of the 2013 Ashes broadcast, 15 stories highlighting Scenic Tours’ Majestic Britain & Ireland journey will be aired during the Ashes coverage and presented by UK cricket commentator Mark Nicholas.

The sponsorship follows the recent launch of their 2014 Europe River Cruises and Tours program, which showcases a number of fantastic itineraries to the UK. On the 22 Day Majestic Britain & Ireland tour, guests will enjoy sampling whiskey at the Glenfiddich Distillery, a private visit to the Queen’s Scottish residence, a Hooley show of traditional Irish music and a 'flight' on the London Eye. They will discover Stonehenge, Bath’s Roman baths, the Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool, Loch Ness, Oxford University, Edinburgh Castle and the Guinness storehouse in Dublin. They will also experience local Irish pub atmosphere in Killarney, the River Thames cruise to Greenwich for a pub dinner and the world of Beatrix Potter on a Lake Windermere cruise.

Prices on the 22 day tour start from $9,695 per person twin share. Price includes an Earybird discount of $600 per couple for bookings made by 15 October 2013; and all accommodation, all activities, events and dining highlights, airport transfers and all tipping and gratuities.
