"Thank you very much for a magnificent evening. The entire experience that you so masterfully put together was really quite amazing. The sights, the sounds, the solitude were all stunning. However, it was your "extra" touches that made the evening incredibly unique. Well done! We are so glad that our staff treated us to the Starlight Tour treat."  Dave McLean, McLean Group, Kelowna, B.C.


"The hike was so much more than any of us anticipated and we just loved the history lessons and fun little touches you added along the way. You took great care to ensure each and every guest enjoyed their evening and your dedication and attention to detail was much appreciated by all of us. It is apparent that you take great care in the planning and execution of your expeditions. Congratulations on all your hard work, it was a great experience!
