"The Inspiresport trip to Valencia was everything I could have hoped for and more. The facilities, organisation and professionalism of the staff exceeded the very high expectations I had from the information I received when we were planning the trip.
The Valencia facilities have to be seen to be fully appreciated. The quality and number of pitches together with the opportunity to take part in training sessions with Valencia coaches can only be of huge benefit to players of all levels and ability.
A short walk from the Valencia training facility comfortable, safe and convenient the hotel was excellent.
As I reflected upon the first two days of the trip I didn't think it would be possible to take it to a higher level. However I had not been to the Mestalla stadium, home to Valencia before. An incredible stadium steeped in history with an access all areas tour with an excellent and knowledgeable guide.
If you want to take your school or club on a trip of a lifetime that will develop skills no matter their current level or ability and give them an experience they will never forget I cannot recommend an inspiresport trip highly enough."

"The Valencia trip in April was a fantastic success both on and off the pitch. Inspiresport really catered for our every need to make sure everything went to plan. I've been on a few trips abroad with team as a player and coach but I have to say this was the best organised I've been on. If you are thinking about any trips within your region including club level give INSPIRESPORT
consideration - You won't be disappointed!"
