“Nancy is thoughtful and puts alot of prep into preparing for trips. I was able to experience and see things I would never have on my own. I trust that Nancy has the capabilities to adjust and solve any problems that came up. Very understanding that we all have different levels of skill and offers a variety of adventures.

This outing allowed me to focus and find inner peace."
