Testimonials from our Travelers

Sara,

Thank you for the great chocolate covered strawberries you arranged to be in our cabin on the tour March 14 - March 28.  They were wonderful!

We had a great trip!  The guides were very knowledgeable.  We always appreciated the times they had radios/earphones for us - it made it much easier to hear and keep up with what was going on.

Thank you for setting up an excellent tour with Steve and Vicki.
