I wanted to thank all of you for combined efforts in making this trip to The World Cup a truly amazing experience for me and my sons! Even though the USA did not survive the Belgium onslaught, the trip was incredible due to all of you! All of you were fantastic to deal with, incredibly professional, responsive and resourceful. I have told all of my colleagues about Roadtrips and am seriously considering taking the entire family (including wife and daughter) to the Summer Games in 2016. I will be in touch!
