"Our family enjoyed last night's tour of Vail Headquarters. It was very informative, entertaining, and a bit spooky listening to the ghostly tales you shared with us. Even though this was my second time taking this tour, I learned so much new information about this unique and historic location. We look forward to attending tours you plan to offer in the future. Once again, Thank You for this memorable experience! I highly recommend this tour to all."
