“Julian did a wonderful job communicating throughout all aspects of planning our trip to Hawaii. He was always available and found out the answer quickly. Throughout the trip he was always available if something came up. Julian did a great job coordinating with us for practice and locker rooms. He met us at the gym to make sure we had everything we needed for practice. I can tell that Julian is a professional and hopefully this can be a great tournament for small college basketball teams in the future!”

“Linelle and Sports Travel Hawaii did a great job planning our trip. It seemed like we had to adjust our plans several times throughout the planning process and she was always ready and available to help us with that. Email responses were very quick and she always called me back the same day if I needed to talk to her on the phone. Submitting payment was very easy. We got the flights that we wanted and stayed in a great hotel. Linelle even got the families seated next to each other on the plane!”
