Trip was a great success. Found cool pieces of amber, and the leader did a great job. Would go to another adventure with Geology.

Jules is an amazing guide. She is so knowledgeable and she is great with the kids. She keeps them engaged and active. She is also so careful to make sure everyone is safe. I would love to do another trip with her in the future- the crystal trip in the spring sounds super fun. I would like to know if she's the guide.
