For anyone new to the tour I should stress that you and your families can dip in and out of the 2 weeks to suit your circumstances. There is no requirement or expectation to stay with the tour party - simply come along to play or watch at any of the games.
Those of you who have been before know what a fabulous tour it is. The venues are iconic, in beautiful surroundings, and the cricket appeals to a wide range of talents.
