We took our U11 football team on their first tour with Sports Tours and it was brilliant. Ours was a long bank holiday weekend, Fri-Mon staying at PGL Osmington Bay. The organisation pre tour was great, the site was perfect, and the tournament was well organised. Kids (an adults) had a blast!

Peter Sansom

Fantastically organised tournament. Sports Tours covered every area really well and everything ran really smoothly.
