Last Wednesday Grant and I went on the Stargazing trip with Nate. We want you to know that the evening was extremely enjoyable, informative and memorable. The sights, all of them, were fantastic and made all the more so by Nate. He is an exceptionally knowledgeable guide. You are lucky to have such a person representing your company.
