I was very impressed with how everything was so well organized. It seemed like every little detail was covered. I know you guys have tons of experience with guiding and expeditions and it shows! I've used other guide companies for my previous trips, and I will state emphatically that I will never use another outfit other than IMG. IMG is way better than the others. Way better! You guys are the best in the business...
