The folks at Global Team Travel were great to work with and very flexible when it came to accommodating our group’s needs. I really appreciated the way they devised an itinerary that was very balanced in terms of soccer, sightseeing and cultural experiences. For many of the players and adults in our group, it was the trip of a lifetime.
