University College London’s Hockey club took 61 players on a 5 night tour to Salou in Spain. This area of Spain is renowned for its nightlife so was the perfect destination to base a university sports tour. The team also enjoyed some day trips and a couple of fixtures. They were kind enough to write us a letter on their return and it sounds like a brilliant tour!
“We had an absolutely fantastic tour and there is very little to say beyond that. Salou was an ideal location for a group like ourselves and just what we were looking for and had requested.
Burleigh Travel were professional, courteous and communicative. Fortunately we had no major issues during the week we were away but I would have full faith in you helping us deal with any as appropriate. In particular I would like to thank the member of your team who sorted out fixtures for us at the very last minute when our original opposition had to cancel due to facility problems.
The club that hosted us were incredibly friendly and a truly high class outfit. We were incredibly sorry to have to cancel the women’s match last minute but fully appreciate them putting a side together last minute to play against us. The team played at a very high standard and I would fully endorse them as a club to contact again in the future.
The accommodation was in an ideal location, close to the beach and local nightlife. Check-in was very smooth and reception both friendly and helpful. Throughout our stay the staff were friendly and understanding. Breakfast was good and a nice provision and the pool bar was also relatively cheap, so both come recommended from our end. The standard of the rooms was reasonable and the pool was great.
The coaches used were high class (the presence of air conditioning a key factor) and perfect size for our group. I have only the highest praise for the drivers, as they were punctual, respective, friendly and relaxed.
Overall, I’d like to thank all those at Burleigh Travel who were involved in organising our trip. It would be a sizeable undertaking were I to take it on alone and you certainly helped to make the trip the great success that it was.”
