....no other tour company is going to cut it. From the first part of the process, the service here has been nothing short of amazing...... Suffice it to say, it all worked out thanks to some ingenuity by Roy, we were able to go on our tours, PITA issues and all. Not a single hitch, when a billion different things could have gone wrong because of our nutty requirements.

Tom was very knowledgable, kind and patient. I liked his laid back manner. He is a good storyteller and he even sang for us.
