Client Comments

“We started out as a group of strangers but by the end were a tight-knit group rooting each other on and willing each other to succeed.  I believe this was laid out long before our trip began.  Mike and Laura took 9 different people, with 9 different personalities, and 9 different skill sets and were able to make the group work and play as one. ”
