Specialist sports travel operator Gullivers Sport Travel has announced a range of packages available for Rugby Union fans wanting to attend the 2019 Rugby Union World Cup in Japan, including supporters and weekend tours.

More than 20 separate itineraries are on offer for the Rugby World Cup that combine the thrill of watching the sporting code’s pinnacle event with a number of immersive elements.

One such adventure is a culinary tour hosted by celebrity chef Adam Liaw, who takes groups through his favourite markets and restaurants in Tokyo, as well as encouraging travellers to get their hands dirty in the kitchen under his expert tutelage during two locally inspired cooking classes.

For footy fans looking to add a touch of luxury to the trip, Gullivers also has a 10-day Silversea cruise sailing around Japan, preceding a seven-day tour on land and two Rugby World Cup Semi Final fixtures.

For the purists who simply want to be consumed by Rugby the entire trip, they can choose packages that boast their sporting idols as travel companions. A range of escorted tours are available that include a host of high-profile ex-Wallabies stars such as former captain Stirling Mortlock, Phil Waugh, Brett Papworth, Dan Crowley and Tony Shaw.

Trips provide a range of three- to five-star hotel accommodation in combination with a wide selection of matches including Pools, Quarters, Semis and Finals.

Next year will mark the ninth time Gullivers has been the official travel agent for the Rugby World Cup, which will run from 20 September to 2 November 2019.
