“I have enjoyed traveling with Premier International Tours over the past decade and participated at international tournaments such as the Dana Cup, Cup No. 1, Gothia Cup, Helsinki Cup and more. I really enjoy knowing that Premier International has taken care of all the little details. They make sure your group has a local guide who knows the city and who really cares about taking care of your group. The tour has set us up with buses, trams, trains, cruise ships, and of course airlines. It’s so nice that each member of the group has all the tickets, passes, accommodations, and everything is always set up perfectly when you get to your destination.  I’m so impressed with the company and feel like each trip is better than the last!"
