“Being faced with the task of taking and organizing a group of 40 young athletes to go on a sports tour is a large undertaking.
Right from the start it was Nicole’s goal to get inside our heads to try and figure out what type of tour we had in mind so that we could get the most out of our experience. After a few back-and-fourth discussions Making Trax went to work on the tour logistics only to come back with some of the best sports packages around the globe. The combination of creativity and professionalism was exactly what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Making Trax, a big thank you for all your efforts.”
Lynsey Allan, Dollar Academy
“We were looking for a tour operator that could provide us with the best, most cost-effective quote and that is exactly what Nicole at Making Trax was able to give us.
We have been very impressed with the attention to detail that Making Trax were able to provide on our recent sports tour to Italy. We really appreciated Nicole’s flexibility and efficiency. Itineraries always need changed, amended or tweaked in some way, and Making trax were able to provide flexible itineraries with a willingness to please and help in any way possible! The seniors had an absolutely fantastic time on tour and we will definitely be organizing a tour with MakingTrax in the future. Thank you!”
David Barrett, High School of Glasgow
“Awesome to work with.
Incredibly organized, easy to communicate with, very responsive to emails and calls. Really great tour! Well done!”
Scott Weston, Morrisons Academy
“Making Trax were brought in to organise and arrange our sports tour to the USA. We were extremely happy with the whole package and Nicole did a fantastic job.
Making Trax were fast to deliver, offer new ideas and solutions and were always helpful with any questions/requests. Nicole has been fantastic to work with from first contact to after the tour was finished. I will not hesitate to use Making Trax again and I can without hesitation recommend them!”
Laurie Allan, George Watson’s College
“I have organised Rugby Tours for the last 25 years and this was without a doubt the best. The boys had a brilliant time and the only complaint that I have had is that it was not long enough!
They all had a brilliant time, and enjoyed the off-field activities – but the beach training and matches were very much the highlight. It was not so much the winning that was important to them – it was the overall experience, and the boys were saying that they have learned so much from playing against the French. A fantastic ‘experience’. The success of the Tour is a credit to your company – your organisation is meticulous. Thank you again for such a brilliant Tour.”
Mr McNaught, The Glasgow Academy, Rugby, Montpellier, April 2014
“I would like to thank you and your team for our Newcastle experience. The trip was extremely well organised, but allowed for flexibility depending on how the pupils felt and what they wanted to do.
The tour reps were absolutely superb! They were excellent at getting to know the pupils quickly and built up an excellent relationship with all of our pupils throughout the trip. They were both happy to wake up the pupils before games with fun exercises and games and it was great for us being able to coach with them umpiring. They were both really good fun and made our weekend stress free. The only real negative of the trip which you can’t predict was the weather, which was dull, grey, misty, wet and cold all weekend! I will definitely be recommending Making Trax to any of my friends who are teachers and thinking about running trips. Thank you so much again for organising an excellent weekend!”
Mr Baxter, St Leonard’s School, Hockey, Newcastle, March 2014
“I just wanted to say thanks very much for all your work and organisation on our trip.
The itinerary all worked out superbly well on and off the pitch and I’m sure our boys will have wonderful memories. Our tour rep did a fantastic job as tour rep/coach – he was brilliant with the boys and also helped everything run so smoothly. We all had a great time.”
Mr Walker, Lenzie Academy, Football, Italy 2013
“All arrangements were great from your side and I was very impressed with everything. Our tour reps were a great help and took a lot of pressure off us.
Obviously the weather was memorable but you can’t control everything! Rugby was pitched well, we were very well hosted and looked after, and refereeing was excellent. I would happily recommend Making Trax as I felt you went that extra mile – a few things included that I wasn’t necessarily expecting.”
Mr Barrett, The High School of Glasgow, Rugby/Hockey, Lake Garda, April 2013
