This was a really great trip. I was a little worried just looking at the intin that there was enough to do, but I was wrong. About a third of the guests had been on last years mystery trip and even the year before last. They are hooked and they were saying every year it seems to get better. We might be in trouble next year. They were a great bunch of people.
Last comment: The Stegmaier Mansion with Joe Matteo and his chef Jody were definitely the biggest hit. They were still talking about it on the way home. And the Barbershop Quartet was a hit also. They performed above and beyond what they had to. They hated to leave. Very personable. Whoever thought of that was a genius. We might want to incorporate it into another tour if possible.
Anyway thanks for giving me this trip. It was a winner.
