6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
My recent trip with M16511 was superb, exceeding all expectations I had. The organisation was excellent - although we were camping rough, it was actually a pretty luxurious trip. The guide (Nerbol), cook (Natasha) and driver (Akbuzz) were outstanding and seemed to (I hope) genuinely enjoy the trip. Many thanks and I hope to see you again sometime in the future. As discussed, I will post photos later this week of Touerkill and his family and I would be very grateful if you could forward them on by behalf (apologies on the errors in name spelling).
