As always is the case when working with you on the pre-sale portion of the process, both you and your entire IGS team were extremely professional, responsive, flexible, and a pleasure to work with. I have also reached out to the AE who worked with the client contacts closely as well as was on-site to execute the program operation and following is his feedback: “It was wonderful! Can’t wait to book another trip!”
It is always a pleasure to work with IGS! Your response time is amazing and you know the true meaning of customer service.
