“I would like to thank you for putting together the program – our schedule was very busy from 6:30 am till 10 pm. And that was great – we didn’t spend any time waiting for something, everything was just on time. Entertainment was very different – more relaxing like Space Needle visit, winery tour and waterfall visits, and more active – fishing and boat ride.”
