David communicated with me the day before the get to let me know where to meet him and even gave me his phone number so I could call if I had any questions. The game we went to was out of the city roughly 15 minutes so being able to go to it on my own wouldn't of been likely. David is very nice and tries very hard to make sure you have a great experience on this tour. If you want to go to a futbol match and experience it with a local you can't do better then taking a tour with David.

David was about as good a host as you could have. Really lovely lad and couldn’t wish to meet a nicer human being. Knowledgeable, pleasant and really easy going. His communication was first class. Informative as well; making sure everything was sorted from the start to the finish. Would highly recommend to any football enthusiast.

It was amazing. Good and great organization by David. Hey what an amazing guide. We had an stopober in a local cafe, where the fans met before the match. It was there all a good and friendly atmosphere and the fans were singing and going crazy before the match. It was great. Thanks for that experience.
