Testimonial Cardinal Heenan

Cardinal Heenan Testimonial

After running numerous football and rugby trips, myself and another member of staff decided to offer a trip to our students around different types of fitness training and the reasons for why athletes use training camps abroad. We decided that Lanzarote would be an excellent place to base this due to the climate, altitude available and the reputation for being safe and friendly.

While organising the trip we were put in contact with Jack Talbot, SETTO Sports Events and Touring Team Organisers. We had various email conversations regarding the itinerary and possible activities that would be available for our students. This proved incredibly helpful as Jack was able to give us a better insight into what would and would not be possible or worthwhile. Jack was also able to offer us airport transfers at a much more competitive rate for our small group of 17 students and 4 staff.

On arrival at Lanzarote airport, Jack met us with a number of other drivers who were all very welcoming and friendly. At this point we arranged a meeting time for later that day to set a day by day itinerary of activities. During the meeting Jack was able to contact a number of different activity providers such as The Wave Rider Experience, Rancho Texas, Go Karting San Bartholome, Aqua Pary Costa Teguise and indoor, outdoor and beach football facilities. With all the activities jack was able to organise discounted rates for us as a school group.

Throughout the whole week Jack was on hand to help with any issues or queries that we had. He also arranged to meet us most evenings to make sure that the day’s events had gone well and that we knew exactly what we are doing the next day. This was invaluable to the success of the trip and took a huge pressure off us as teaching staff.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Jack and Steve, who made our trip such a success and have given our pupils so many amazing memories. We will definitely be using Jack and SETTO when we arrnage out next trip to Lanzarote in 2015
