Press Release   •   Oct 05, 2010 13:46 BST

With just one year until Rugby World Cup 2011, New Zealand (9th September – 23rd October 2011), there is still time for fans to experience rugby’s flagship event in its spiritual home.

Gullivers Sports Travel has a range of 2011 Rugby World Cup Tours with something to suit everyone.

Rugby World Cup returns to New Zealand for the first time since the inaugural event in Australia and New Zealand in 1987, and the New Zealand national team, The All Blacks, will be keen to mark the event with some exciting matches. Arguably the most passionate Rugby country in the world, for New Zealand, or Aotearoa (Maori for ‘the land of the long white cloud’), rugby is the national religion making the experience unforgettable.

Former Bath, England and British Lions player Gareth ‘Cooch’ Chilcott says, “The All Blacks are again setting the standards leading up to Rugby World Cup, 2011, but this has happened before and can they afford to blow another Rugby World Cup especially on home soil? It will be a fantastic tournament that I for one cannot wait to be part of.”

There is still the chance for fans to book their packages to experience what promises to be the best Rugby World Cup ever

As well as the action on the pitch, there is plenty to discover off the pitch from the stunning scenery of the south to the Maori folklore, hot springs and volcanoes of the north – and the vibrant cities in between.

Gullivers Sports Travel, official provider of Rugby World Cup 2011 supporter tours and packages, is offering exclusive cruise tours during the latter stages of the tournament, onboard luxury cruise liner Pacific Dawn. Fans can easily access the Christchurch quarter-finals, the semi-finals and the all important Rugby World Cup 2011 Final with docking of the ship at local seaports.

Cruise tour prices start from £5,008 per person and include full board accommodation onboard Pacific Dawn, return international flights, the guarantee of official match tickets (charged separately at face value) a programme of entertainment, a Rugby debate evening with former Rugby international including Gareth Chilcott, airport transfers, the services of a dedicated tour manager and tour merchandise.
