“Mark – I have been so busy with the beginning of the season, that I have not had a chance to properly “thank you” for a wonderful trip to Portugal!  It would be hard to guess how many parents have expressed sincere gratitude for us taking the players on a trip this summer.  Even yesterday, I received another email from a parent thanking me for putting the trip together.  So I pass that thanks on to you!  Please pass along our thanks to everyone…and let them know, we will be back! 

About the beach climb…I am still being teased about it. Seems sympathy for a knee replacement is not enough to protect me.  Oh well, let me know if you need anything from me and we will be talking soon about the next trip.  All for soccer,”

Bob R., Head Coach of Women’s Soccer, SNC

“Mark – safely home – all of us – after a truly unbelievable experience in South Africa. I cannot thank you and your crew enough. Stanley was simply incredible. The entire travel party loved him. Far exceeded how I thought it would go. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Eric W., Swarthmore College, U-18 Boys, PA


“Having just completed our third international trip with SoccerTours.Net, we were reminded of why we always turn to them to assist in making our dreams a reality! Mark and crew always go above & beyond, and dealing with the challenges of Covid was like no other time. They are easy to work with and flexible, which makes adjusting as needed super easy. We appreciate always having an escort with the group to help us navigate the daily schedule and ensure everything goes smoothly. Their passion for soccer is key for us as we want the beautiful game to be at the center of every trip we run. We are already discussing plans for our next trip and know SoccerTours.Net will be our go-to operator to make it happen!”

Jeff F., La Grange Raiders, NY

“Everyone is home safely! Thank you again for an incredible trip, Mark. Your group does such a wonderful job of organizing complicated schedules behind the Scenes and provides everyone involved with such a positive experience!”

Mike R., Iron Valley Soccer, PA

“I just wanted to thank Mark and SoccerTours.net for an organized trip that helped me send off my team properly, as we just WON the Italy International Cup.  He bent over backwards to make sure my team had the little things like ice and towels.  My next trip will run through SoccerTours.net!”

Issy M., Red Star U18 Girls, WI

“We want to take this opportunity to thank you formally for the wonderful job you did in planning our 14-day European Tour….The players were challenged with teams of similar talent pools which was important to us….The match-ups you scheduled were great…without reservation, we would highly recommend SoccerTours.net to others.”

“I want to thank you for all you did for us on our recent trip to Pitea and Stockholm, Sweden to play in the soccer tournaments.  The arrangements, from the hotel, transportation, tournament registrations, and the game in the National Stadium were outstanding.  Your patience and flexibility were much appreciated and resulted in a wonderful and memorable experience for the players, coaches, and parents.  It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to meeting again in the future.”

Tim L., Seacoast United U-14 Girls

“Thanks again for the outstanding service and diligence you paid out to our trip. The parents and boys are all still talking about how great the trip was. I’ll be in touch about a trip for next summer. I hope all is well. Thanks again!”

Brian G., DGN, U-18 Boys, IL

“Sending 15 boys overseas for the first time quickly became a less daunting task than I had first expected.  All the arrangements, itineraries, expectations, and helpful tips were taken care of and forwarded to us regularly prior to departure.  Our tour in Iceland and then to Sweden was paced nicely and included as much culture as it did soccer.  Most importantly, each day was designed with an eye for the needs of the players.  We will certainly be back.”

Patrick C., Seacoast United U-15 Boys

“Thank you for the tremendous job you did putting together our trip to London and Liverpool.  It was a great combination of sightseeing, games we played, and professional games and practices we got to see.  It was awesome to have a tour guide who actually grew up in England, was knowledgeable of the history, and familiar with the local customs.  It was a soccer tour we’ll always remember.  Thanks again for a great time!”

Mike P., University of Rochester

“I just wish to once again thank you for all that you did to make our tour an absolute success.  Now 4 months removed from our 2 weeks together the memory just keeps getting richer.  I cannot imagine the amount of work the uniqueness of our group gave you, yet my high expectations were exceeded in every way.  For that I will be eternally grateful.”

Glen R., Coach, LA Liberty

“I wanted to congratulate you on a job well done.  Your planning provided the competition and accommodations necessary to make the trip for Region IV’s U15 ½ a memorable soccer learning experience….”

Mike F., Head Coach

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your stellar work in organizing our pre-season tour to Europe.  This season, we have witnessed a growth in team cohesion which was greatly enhanced by your trip.  Furthermore, our team’s early season success was, in large part, due to the match practice gained on our SoccerTours.net tour.”

Paul S., Stanford University Women’s Soccer

“The itinerary was packed…..but there was still time for sightseeing and socializing.  We enjoyed trips to Windsor and Chester and we concluded our sojourn with a day in London.  The feeling was unanimous – the tour had been the experience of a lifetime.  Our tour operator, Mark Franchi of SoccerTours.net, had done an outstanding job.  We look forward to our next tour!”

Ralph F., Former Head Coach, Tufts University

“If you love soccer you had to love our English Fling.  A more relaxed six days could not have been had!  Pure soccer fun could only describe it.  Chelsea Football Club one day, Tottenham the next, and all the pub stops and sports shops fitted in-between.  When I think back on this trip, all I can think of is the “F” words: Football, Friends, and Fantastic Fun.  A sincere thanks for everything.”

Bob R., Soccer International, Inc.

“Thank you for a wonderful trip to England.  The service and support provided by SoccerTours.net was fantastic.  You are exceptional at what you do.  It takes a certain skill set to be able to organize the amount of details required for a soccer tournament trip abroad for over 60 parents, players, and siblings, and remain pleasant, easy to work with and flexible.  Thank you again for the professional service provided by everyone during the preparations and throughout the trip.”

Maura R., ENYYSA North

“Thank you so much for the fantastic soccer coaches trip to Holland, Germany, and Belgium.  From every detail and situation that came up, your experience and knowledge of the travel industry, along with your knowledge of Europe, proved to be a very comforting factor for the entire group.  I also look forward to further the relationship with SoccerTours.net.  Thanks again for a great trip!”

Fred M., Director of Ticket Operations and Customer Service


Soccer Team Tour

“Your attention to every detail showed in how all our transportation, accommodations, food, and activities were coordinated and worked out as scheduled.  Your experience in dealing with large groups was evident throughout.  Our accommodation was excellent and I thought you did a wonderful job combining soccer and sightseeing so both the adults and the players were able to enjoy the trip equally.  Thanks again for all of your great efforts.”

Douglas S., Frederick Excel Soccer Club

“I really wish I was back in England….Really!  We have to go again.”

Danny R., Head Coach, Alaska ODP

“I wanted to take my son to the Eurocup and contacted SoccerTours.net. They took the hassle away of planning my own trip and put together a great tour that included 4 games and a package of things to do in Paris. Their representative met us at the airport and answered all our questions. I would definitely use SoccerTours.net again because of how well organized the trip was and the reasonable cost for the whole experience.”
