Comments from people we have worked with and provided tours for
” Having played football and worked with James in the past, I find him to be a confident, outgoing and reliable person. I have known James for over 10 years now and whatever line of work he is involved with, I find him to be dedicated and professional.”
– John Francis (Burnley FC)
” I have known James for 10 years and have the utmost faith in his character and honesty. He is very enthusiastic and committed to everything he does in football. I have always found him fun to work with and very dedicated to whatever he is involved with.”
– Daniel Phillpott (Everton FC)
“Hi James, The weekend was a massive success all round. Both parents and players were very impressed with every part of the weekend activities and the attention to detail given. Paolo and Cristina could not have done more and the days ran like clockwork. A special mention must be given to the facilities, coaches, president and kids of FC Mountjuic as they put the “cherry on the cake” as far as the training session and game are concerned. We are getting together to write a testimonial over the weekend for yourself, Paolo and everyone we met while in Barcelona, I remember setting out a few years ago to make this happen. And, i did take 5 minutes out over the weekend to realise i did not think it would have been possible to give the kids such a once in a lifetime experience – and i must thank yourself and Paolo for this – Thank You from everyone at Byers Green Haze Under 10′s (Players, Parents and Coaches).
I will of course be highly recommending yourself and Paolo in the future but as i said i will forward an official tesimonial in the next week or so. Thanks again, keep up the good work.
– Gareth Jackson Manager Byers Green Haze
” From the word ‘go’ I had the upmost confidence in James and his company. Taking 40+ 12 & 13 year olds to a foreign country is stressful so to know he had the skills and confidence to deal with different scenarios was great. On our sports tour to Holland James did not take a back seat, instead choosing to establish relationships with parents, coaches and the children. This meant there was a mutual respect which even had a positive affect on our performances on the pitch. I would not hesitate to use James’ company again in the future.
– Matthew Keddie (Leeds City Boys U13 manager)
” As the PE teacher at Carr Manor High School, we were delighted with how things were organised and run by FTI for our tour to Wales in May 2011. All our needs were catered for allowing the staff and pupils to enjoy the experience. The FTI representative was a great lad who got on brilliantly with staff and students alike.”
– David Currie (PE teacher Carr Manor High School)

– Sharon Wright (Secretary, Garforth Villa FC)
“My favorite part of the trip was Paris.It was really cool to eat lunch on the steps infront of the Eiffel Tower with everyone. I really enjoyed the live Premier League Match, it was so much different to watching it on TV. Thanks James and FTI”

“The best part of our tour was the open top bus round Lonodn, seeing all the famous sites I have read about and seen on the TV and in films, The Windsor Castle tour was an eye opener as well, in all it was a great trip, Thanks”
– Tim McNaughton parent/coach MV USA
“I enjoyed going to all of our planned events. The Stoke Vs Manchester City game was very exciting, eating lunch by the Eiffel Tower was really fun and the trip to Bath was amazing, a once in a lifetime experience. I cant even choose my favorite thing because we all had such a great trip and one that I will never forget”
– Megan – Player MV USA
The under 15’s team from Wrenthorpe Rangers booked a five day Football Tour Barcelona and Salou. The organisation of the tour from start to finish was extremely professional, James the Director was in regular contact to make sure all needs were catered for. The boys and coaches had a fantastic time, we have no hesitation in recommending Football Tours International to others, in fact we have already suggested next years under 15’s use the same company.
Jane Bragg, Club Welfare Officer, Wrenthorpe Rangers Football Club
