"I rec'd a gift certif. for my experience, changed the venue & added people. All went very smoothly both in working on the phone with Cust Svc Reps & through the Internet. The experience itself was terrific in the delivery & knowledge content of our guide, Brian. The places we visited, the different foods, the establishments & their employees, the amount of time, & the walk through Santa Cruz. All of the above were able to satisfy both my partner & I (both close to 60) & our 25 year old kids. We will definitely use Cloud 9 to book similar experiences in other Cities we plan to visit in our Retirement!!! Thanks for a Terrific Father's Day!!!"
