I contacted Roger with a special tour request.I was in need of a tour guide for my high school trip.Roger accepted the challenge and went above and beyond. In a very short amount of time,he was able to collect historical information appropriate for your field trip,devoted three hours of his own time on a Saturday to review the bus route. Roger was well versed and able to weave World,American,and African history into one.Kept students attention over 3 hrs. His debt of historical knowledge is superior!
