Edwin Doran started operating in 1974 with rugby tours, and it is still our number one sport. No other operator offers a wider range of school and rugby league tours. We have in-depth knowledge and understand the sport’s mindset.

Our rugby specialists have all been on tour at some stage and we have reliable contacts in a diverse choice of destinations, from the most popular to those off the beaten track.
