JJZ Sports started…

…..as The Hanlon Tour Company, by founder James Hanlon who had little or no background in the travel industry but with a love of sports & travel.  With a tonne of practical knowledge & passion for Europe, we started planning overseas sports tours for our clients in 2002 under the name “Team Tours International”.

Since then, we have built tours for over 5000 clients from around the world.   We have planned tours for clients from Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Russia, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Germany, Latvia and China.  We have planned tours for North American clients to travel to Finland, Sweden, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, UK, and Italy.

Tours require special planning, expertise and on-site service that many regular travel agents cannot provide.

We pride ourselves in looking after every detail and creating… “Creative, Customized & Complete Tours”.

Why book a JJZ Sports group tour?

Creative–We can organize add-on tours, specialized sightseeing tours, traditional dinners or anything else to make your tour standout. We can also be creative with itineraries and make suggestions in creating the perfect flow for your trip.

Customized-We don’t just “sell” 3rd party tours but rather we customize every tour to our clients’ needs and wishes.  Every tour is different and we are flexible on the inclusions, length of stay, quality of hotels and more.

Complete-Anybody can book hotels or ground transportation, however, building a “complete” tour requires specialized and professional help.   You will receive pre-tour planning tips, post tour follow up and quality customer service in between.   With groups, there are flight contracts, hotel contracts, luggage issues, logistical considerations and more.

Leave it with us to handle all of it for you.
