  • U15 and U17 rugby squads of the north-west province, SOUTH AFRICA

    The organisation was first class from the very beginning. Laurence met us at the airport, gave us our programme and immediately made us feel at home. Our accommodation and transport were perfectly planned to suit our needs. All the fixtures we asked for were organized and Laurence even managed to get us one extra fixture on short notice. The sport itself was very competitive, like the fixture against Racing Metro 92, but the organisation of the tour was even better. Throughout our stay Laurence was friendly and professional, and catered to our every need. We will definitely use her company again every time we travel to France and recommend her to all other teams.

  • U15 and U17 squads of LLANISHEN, WALES

    As a new coach hoping to make changes in attitude and commitment, I wanted the players to experience a true 'rugby' tour with hard fixtures, some travelling and a degree of responsibility. … Be assured that this was a special experience for all of us. I took training yesterday evening and the boys were still buzzing. The camera never lies and does show the enjoyment experienced by all. A huge thank you to you both. And for the rest, remember: what goes on tour stays on tour!!

  • French Tour for CRAWSHAYS « Barbarians Gallois »

    On behalf of Crawshay's Welsh RFC (Barbarians Gallois) I am very pleased to recommend Laurence Potier and Sport International Organisation as Sports Tour Operators. Laurence Potier's huge experience in this field enables her to organise our rugby tour to Cannes this year impeccably. The choice for hotel was ideal. All arrangements throughout the Tour went extremely smoothly.

  • Tour for Northampton Old Scouts RFC, ENGLAND

    Our visit to the South of France was a wonderful experience for our boys. We took three teams (U13s, U14s, and U15s) down to play in a tournament put on by the local club which attracted some top caliber teams including a 'Departmental' XV from the Hérault, Béziers, Rives d'Hérault and other local towns. There were over 300 kids involved in the tournament and the organisation was first class. The pitches were beautiful, the games were played in great spirit and were of high quality and the bar-b-que afterwards were spectacular. Our accommodations right on the beach in Mèze was fine and the boys enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the town. Meals were great, the weather was spectacular and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We hope to be invited back next year!

  • Irvine UCI rugby club tour - California, USA

    For the University of California Irvine, it was a 3-phase European tour. First, a few days in Italy with one match and a tour of Rome. Whilst in Rome we watched the Italy v France 6 Nations game. The second phase took us to France where we were based in Mèze. We visited Montpellier, Pézenas, Carcassonne and then Toulouse and experienced first hand the warm welcome of the South of France. Our visit was full of barbecues, lots of grilled meat, mussells and oysters, visits to wineries and amazing after match hospitality in Meze provided by 'Les Potes de Thau'! The team then flew on to Wales. It was a wonderful experience for our players and we are looking forward to returning to Europe again soon.

    From arrival until our departure, the team at SIO made sure that all our needs were met, so we could enjoy our tour to Paris, Biarritz, Toulouse and Béziers.
