"Our group just wanted to say thank you for such an enjoyable outing. Everything was just great and you planned it just perfectly. There were so many positive comments. We enjoyed wandering through the shops downtown and the lunch at the Cafe Fredonia was just delicious and the staff was very courteous. Dick Voigtel, our guide, showed us some of the old homes around town. We enjoyed seeing the different architecture. Millard's Crossing Historic Village was really more than we expected and Roz warmed our hearts with the history and facts about the village. Many comments were made on the way home. Everyone agreed that this was, by far, one of the best trips we had taken. And you made it possible. Thanks again for a job well done." - Young Energetic Seniors, White Oak, Texas
"I can't thank you enough for the lovely trip you helped me put together. Ken Wood, our guide, was great and everyone enjoyed his time with us. I hope to plan this trip again next March - everything from lunch at the Cafe Fredonia, the tour guide, the guide at the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden to the stop off at the Visitors' Center. Thank you for your help." - City of Bellaire, Texas
"On behalf of the Prime Time group, I would like to express our appreciation for all the work you and many others did to help make our trip a very pleasant experience. We were overwhelmed by everything you provided for us, from setting up the schedule to having guides to meet us. I would also like to say that all of the tour guides were friendly and very helpful. Barb Stump at the Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden had so much knowledge about the plants that our trip through the garden was not only enjoyable but educational as well. I would certainly recommend Nacogdoches to any group that was looking for an interesting place to visit. Thank you again for all your wonderful help!" - First Baptist Church, Franklin, Texas
"Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate your effort and help that made our field trip to Nacogdoches a most successful and enjoyable affair. I especially want to thank you for arranging the driving tour, the tours of the houses and the Old Stone Fort, as well as the Old University Building. As always, the ladies out at Millard's Crossing Historic Village provided an entertaining and memorable tour. The arrangements at the Fredonia Hotel were superb. The lunch was wonderful. Our group could not believe the buffet they served. And finally, a special thank you to Dick Voigtel. He truly conducted a memorable and informative tour. His taking time to show us through the Old University Building was beyond the call of duty. Again, thank you to all. You folks have 'got it all together.'" - Heritage Association of Frisco, Texas
