If you want a trip that is completely hassle free, fun and memorable, go with Carlos. I first met Carlos at his tennis club in 2002 where I was the teaching pro. We - my tennis students and I – have gone with him to several U.S. Open. Carlos is a wonderful host , he's a good friend, and an adversary the other side of the net! Travelling to NYC with Carlos to the U.S. Open was fantastic and many of my students have booked other Grand Slams trips with him. Carlos has excellent leadership skills, his personal attention to us and covering all the details left us nothing to do but enjoy the wonderful fun-filled experience of The Open and NYC!
