Hi Nancy,

I could not thank you enough! I'm in tears while writing this email...

The reason i could not add on the show was the added expense. Please say a big thanks to your Manager and thank you for blessing my family.

Hi Nancy,

The trip was fantastic, thank you so much for all of you help. Guides and drivers were all very nice and accommodation was in excellent locations. It would have been helpful to have had flight information prior to travel as the guides never seemed aware of flight details, only pick up times. Some days I was unsure whether it would be a morning or evening flight. Thanks again

Warm regards
