"This was my second time with your company and just like the first it was most enjoyable. So many places out there get you in the first time then after that they forget why you returned...Not so with your guides and service. Keep the course that you have been going. I will be spreading the word that AMG is the place to go to meet great people, have a great experience, and memories to last a life time." -Rick 2015
