"I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our kayak trip with you a couple of weeks ago. We really appreciated our guide's knowledge of the local geology and wildlife as well as some of the history of the homesteaders in the region. Please tell him that Mike and Karena from San Diego really had a great time and look forward to our next Alaska trip! Thanks again."
