  • Best tour I never took….

    Mark was a pleasure to work with. He adapted to changes in our tour group graciously. We were looking forward to a wonderful day. And I am sure it would have been. Unfortunately, although our guide was there waiting, our cruise ship was unable to dock due to fog. Mark was in top of the […]
