"I just returned from your 5-star Ultimate Canyonlands tour with Chuck Denny. What a wonderful experience I had. The tour was so well managed by Chuck....what I really want to convey to you is the performance of Chuck. He was constantly at work to see that all ran smoothly and that we were entertained on those long coach rides between the parks. Because of his constant communications with hotels, restaurants, and local guides along the way, all events came off with no delay or disruption. The man is a dedicated professional who represents your company well. With Chuck Denny and your excellent office staff, I know I have found the best company in the business." - Joseph Commette 

“We have been on many tours, many with good guides. Chuck was the best we ever had.” (SE Asia Maupintour)

"I wanted to expand upon the usual end of tour survey. I signed up for the North Dakota trip, because I had not visited this state. I did not know what to expect. This trip far exceeded my expectations, because of the Tour Manager, Chuck Denny. Chuck is a FIRST Class Tour Manager. It started with the smiling face when we arrived to the time he dropped us off. For him, it is all about US and not advertising about himself. Chuck wanted to make this the best experience for all of us and he accomplished this. He puts positive circles around my previous tour experiences. He was well informed about the area we were visiting. The trip was easy going and changes were seamless to us. Chuck made sincere efforts to get to know all of us. He was there for us and any needs we had. He made sure we had fun and have the best trip. The trip was very well organized and everything fell into place to make this trip one of my favorites in recent years. I would not hesitate to travel with Chuck again in the future, especially if state side." - Paula Brewer

"This is a brief note to tell you how pleased we were with your Travel Director on our recent trip through the Panama Canal on Cunard Lines from Ft. Lauderdale to Acapulco. Chuck Denny was especially helpful when we ran into a problem where we had to change our plans. He handled the matter thoroughly and we did not have to worry about a thing. In addition, he helped the Johns Hopkins group with meeting and video and video set-ups that went beyond the usual requirements. He helped make the lectures more enjoyable and was always there if needed. We hope to go on more trips through Johns Hopkins and have the opportunity of seeing Chuck Denny again."– Sincerely, Mr. & Mrs. Richard P. Baks
