" We are a 2008 boys football team from the USA and went on a 1 week Thanksgiving England tour with DB Sports November 2019. We had 33 people in our group including 10 little football players. Thanks to Darren and his team, the tour was a mayor hit and extremely well planned from start to finish. Everybody had a really fantastic time and we were able to create priceless memories for eternity. Darren and his team were very attentive and accessible prior and during our trip and took care of every single detail. We made some changes to our itinerary on the fly and the Darren’s flexibility was much appreciated. 5 star experience for everybody. Highly recommended! "
