It was wonderful honour to travel with Steve and Roberta. We had lots in common and this factor on its own most certainly helped to make our journey together a fabulous experience. I gained much from both Steve and Roberta and I can but only hope that the same could be said for what they gained from me as their tourguide. Overall a fabulously enjoyable tour.

A BIG THANKS goes to Howie and Leslie Needleman for recommending that the Lasser's travel with me.
