So What’s Included in a We Love Rugby Tour?

While you'll be travelling with like-minded Rugby tragics, we recognise that everybody has a different idea of what makes up a great touring experience.

Some passengers like to be on the go all day, every day, while others prefer to take it easy - do things at their leisure, and even have a rest day every now and again.

We Love Rugby tours include match tickets, accommodation (including breakfast daily), coach transfers, as well as exclusive functions. Some Tours even include VIP access to attend an Australian training session!

But in terms of sightseeing we don’t want to overwhelm our passengers with a demanding daily schedule of additional tours and activities.

Typically, our itineraries include a selection of must see sightseeing experiences that we have identified from years of Rugby touring. We know what our passengers have really enjoyed in the past, and we know you’ll love it too – so we’ve included these as part of your Tour cost.

We wanted to give our passengers the chance to choose how they want to spend their days in between the Games. As such, there are a number of Mid Tour Options which are available with some of our escorted Tours.

Destinations on offer during the Mid Tour Options include Nagano & Kanazawa, Hiroshima & Hakone, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Beijing. However you want to spend your days, we have selected what we believe are some of the best destinations in Japan as well as an option to head to Beijing, China to see the Great Wall!
