"Love the use of hands on materials - gives the customer a personal feel of the facts."
"I really do push the information out to our tourists ... they are shocked and have no idea of what is going on in Hawaii."
"The passion, importance of the mission and your knowledge of the material, both individually and collectively, showed!"
"All professional and a valuable tool for tour drivers."
