Favourite Sports Tour Destination
"The stand out destination for me still has to be Amsterdam. Aside from the usual pro’s associated with this liberal city such as the wide variety of lively nightlife for all ages and world famous Red Light District; you also will find excellent sporting facilities with a strong passion and history for sport in Holland. There is also a fantastically relaxed atmosphere and the locals are very friendly. The city can also be explored by boat along it’s charming network of canals and is a city which has something for everyone."
Most Memorable Sports Tour Experience
"Probably the time on the beach in Benidorm in my younger days where the combination of afternoon drinking games being played in the hot sun led to the call of ‘naked dying fly’ - we all obliged and 5 minutes later were ‘gently encouraged’ to vacate the beach!"
