“I will say that the trip to Italy certainly helped our team chemistry and helped us to win our first ever conference tournament championship!”
“Our trip with Premier International Tours was a once in a lifetime experience for the entire team. A tremendous trip from start to finish!"
“The Regis University women's soccer program has traveled with Loek van Zijl and Premier International Tours since 2000. He and his staff are knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and very well connected throughout Europe and South America. Premier International Tours creates lifetime memories for players, coaches, and families!”
“I've traveled to Europe with 3 different Lake Hills BU16 teams coordinated through Premier International Tours over the past 7 years. Each one has been the trip of a lifetime for the boys.”
“I have traveled with Premier on two occasions already and am looking forward to traveling with them again this next year as our IUPUI Women's Soccer team goes to Spain in May of 2011. They are always well organized and utilize guides who are very knowledgeable about the local area. I would gladly recommend them to anyone thinking about taking a team to Europe.”
“I've used PIT for my past 3 trips and the experiences were truly out of this world! Loek and his staff do a great job.”
"It is amazing to be traveling with fellow "futbol" teams and the local people. We are playing at the "Heden Center" which is located by where the Opening Ceremonies were located. This is where everything happens and all the thousands of teams come to congregate and interact. The game themselves are being televised in 12 different countries! Along the way we have picked up many fans that are now traveling to watch my girls play. One fan from England told me people are talking about us, and made my stomach go into knots. He said 'but don't tell your girls' and I said 'I would never, I am having a hard time from keeping them talking to all the boys who are now showing up at our games!”
“My United GU17 team from Bellevue, Washington had an epic trip to Italy combining sightseeing, soccer, beaches and shopping. Pisa, Lucca, Florence, San Marino and Venice provided great cultural and shopping destinations for the girls and the Adriatic coast around Cesenatico was perfect for soccer and beaches. Everyone at the tournament was extremely friendly and welcoming. The recently remodeled Aris Hotel in Bellaria was perfect with a great staff catering to our every request. They made arrangements to have a cake at dinner one night complete with sparklers for one of the girls 16th birthday and didn’t charge us! I really liked the fact that little English was spoken on the Adriatic coast which made for a richer cultural experience for the players and the locals in Bellaria who do not see many Americans and always had huge welcoming smiles for us Americans. The only complaint from the female staff at the hotel was that I didn’t bring my American boys U18 team as well. Great job Premier International Tours!”
“I wanted to take a minute to extend my thanks on behalf of our players, coaches and families for your work in helping to make our team tour of England a reality. The tour went off without a hitch and we all had a wonderful experience.”
“Thanks to you my U15 boys and U15 girls teams made very successful trips to Europe! The parents felt secure and were very pleased to provide their teenager a trip of a life-time! We will never forget!!”
“Our team took an amazing trip to England. Premier International Tours developed a great itinerary for us which included trips to Chester, Watford and London.I have done tours like this on my own but using Premier International Tours took all of that responsibility off my shoulders.Everything else was taken care of.The trip was also an excellent bonding experience that I know helped our team come together to win our first Conference Championship Title in program history. It was an excellent experience for our student-athletes and I look forward to our next trip with Premier International Tours.”
