Valencia Sports Tours launched in September 2016. Created by Barry Eaton, director, the company focusses on offering the finest sports tours possible to the city.
Barry Eaton has a business background in Events, Marketing and PR and has lived in Valencia since 2008. In 2012, he founded Levante Cricket Club in the heart of Valencia and since its inception, began hosting clubs from the UK to Spain where cricket teams played a series of matches against Levante CC while also having the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful break in Valencia.
This experience of hosting tours plus further development led to the idea of Valencia Sports Tours, a business that now offers the same exceptional tours that Cricket teams have already experienced in recent years, but for a multitude of other sports.
Why Valencia Sports Tours?
Three reasons, the city, the sport and our attention to detail. Valencia itself is simply a stunning location. The third largest city in Spain, it has everything a city should have, the life, culture, history and an added bonus, it is set on the Mediterranean with beautiful golden beaches. On the east coast, the climate is fantastic with around 300 days of sunshine and fair winters set between perfect spring and autumn months and of course glorious summers.
Being a city of stature, sport plays an important part of the locals lives. Every sport you would expect and more is played in the city from social to high levels of ability. In addition, the surrounding region is also picturesque mountains and gorgeous coastline, breeding adventure sports, water sports and much more.
As a company we live and love Valencia. We have made the city our home and we do not service any other area of Spain. We work closely with local clubs to make sure when you book a tour, the sports side of your visit is pitched at the level you require, allowing you to get the results and experience you want. While the sport is of course a priority, our local knowledge allow those visiting to enjoy the city we love in all its glory. We can offer an insight into Valencia like no other sports tour company can, that is a statement we will stand by!
