      Thank you for a fantastic experience. The accommodations were excellent, the communication was outstanding! I was truly impressed by how organized everything was and how easy and enjoyable the entire trip was. A vacation planned by someone else, but with enough free time to book some of my own activities was a perfect balance! We will be looking forward to booking our next trip with Travel & Play.

      The trip was very well planned and executed. The staff was fantastic across the board and the experience for my son was amazing.

      Daughter had a great time! The Hotel was nice & the food there was very good. She enjoyed the athletics center set-up as well if not more so due to more time for camaraderie with various teams. Although the food was not too good there. I understood the players were not as excited having the parents/siblings around as much on this trip, especially on the buses where the players wanted to play their music to get into game mode but they didn’t feel comfortable with the parents & siblings to be themselves singing along to music. Prior trips my daughter was aware that the team & coaches stayed together w/ minimal interaction f/ parents w/ the teams. The highlight for her was indeed Iceland! Thank you to Barry & team for taking care of the kids. My daughter had a fabulous time & did not want to return home. The extra time to bond w/ her teammates and coach was invaluable. The kids are constantly going from game to game but some extra downtime at the end should be considered for the kids on future trips. We understand this was a different circumstance due to a missed flight, but extra bonding & downtime w/ teammates was priceless for her. And, another highlight in Iceland was the geyser and waterfall- Thank you! We are appreciate Barry & team for everything! And of course Brian Wright!! Thank you

      The flight with SAS was great! The service was great. Our stay in Copenhagen was awesome. They provided us with opportunities to visit landmarks and the tours were great. Our guide was great. He was easy to talk to and was able to answer all of my questions. At Herning, the shuttle service back and forth to Vildjberg was awesome and essential. The hotel at Herning was close to lots of food options which made dinners great. The last day we went to Aarhus for several hours. We were left to explore and I just sort of wondered around not really knowing what to do. I wish we went to see the World War 2 fortifications which was an option. I am not sure why Aarhus was chosen. The only disappointment was the players missing their connected flight with Play Airlines and my daughter being stuck in Iceland for 5 days waiting for the connecting flight out. Her being stuck while others went home was frustrating. I appreciate all that was done by the staff for the players to enjoy this "extra" time. She also watched her luggage damaged by airline workers and relied on the staff to help her navigate that situation. The staff did not have the time to help with this situation. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, that situation has not resolved itself as now I am trying to navigate this which seems like an uphill battle. Thank you for your time Kenny Yowell
