Great service! - Tyrone was a great tour guide. Knowledgeable and personable. It rained the whole time but his enthusiasm was not dampened!

Dwayne is an encyclopedia! - Dwayne was our tour guide. Was very patient when the other people were late and they still did not show up. Great public speaker. I have hearing issues but could hear him great even without him having to shout to be respectful of the venue. I am in my 50s and did not know the Vietnam tomb was empty until Dwayne dropped the knowledge on me! Highly recommend him and tip generously!
