Tony T was the best. We really lucked out. We did it the night before the tour, thinking we would get somebody who wasn't very good, because it was the last minute. Tony Exceeded every expectation. He was Knowledgeable, friendly, upbeat, and from the Mekong Delta, so we were lucky enough to meet some of his relatives. This tour couldn't be any better. It was the real thing. Diane
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so lucky to have your group for my Mekong tour from cruise port. And I am very happy to see you like the tour very much. Wish to welcome you again and again! Tony
Pamela HagedornUnited States
this was one of the best tours we have taken...… thanks so much for a wonderful day. By all means , take the opportunity to lunch with the locals. "Tony" was fabulous.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very very very happy to see you like this tour and it's lunch style. It was a really interesting and wonderful time with two of you. Special Thanks and Best Wishes! Tony
Merlina TanUnited States
I am giving Tony T a five-star rating for his gracious mannerisms and his ability to share Saigon with us for a short time instead of the usual 7 hours. The port is far from Saigon but this tour was made possible depending on one's needs. We were a group of seniors and adults so the tour went at a slower pace though it was manageable. Most of the highlights were shown to us while we walk and others stayed in the bus. Nothing missed, enjoyed all and shopping as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so lucky to have your group for this city tour from cruise port. And I am very happy to see you like the tour very much. All your group members were so nice and kind. Wish to welcome you and your groups again with long time or more days! Best wishes to all. Tony from Vietnam.
Tony was an incredible guide! He is very knowledgeable and anxious to share with his clients. Tony's English is very good and he loves to talk and learn new English words and phrases to his vocabulary. He is very accommodating and flexible insetting the itinerary for the day. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to tour with the best guide we've found in our 3 weeks in Vietnam!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a super nice review! It is so great to hear that you did enjoy everything from the tour so far. Special THANKS! Best Wishes! Tony
Pauline P.United Kingdom
Tony was prompt and the ship pick up perfect. Tony and his driver took excellent care of us as we are now seniors and not as stable as we were. The insights into life in Vietnam were first class and the actual tour perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend Tony.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for booking tour with pick up INSIDE THE CRUISE DOOR!!! I was sooo happy to see you enjoy the local life and secret stops in this tour. :) Best wishes from Saigon! Tony
Steven AustinScottsdale, AZ, United States
Tony picked us up right on time. Throughout the tour of Cu Chi Tunnels and HCMC Tony told us about our points of interest and answered any questions we asked of him - all conversation was in English and Tony is good at this. Tony's attitude and nature comfortable and enjoyable to spend a day with. The highlight of our day together was taking my wife and I to a local lunch place with no foreigners, both my wife and I asked for this. I loved the place - my wife did not like frog though... ��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: To welcome two of you as the FIRST TOUR of the local New Year is my big lucky thing to me. Sure, after the tour, I got many new more information from you. Thank you very much! I am so happy to see you enjoyed the tour and lunch. P/S: A special thanks to your private comment. :) Best wishes! Tony from Vietnam.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir and Madam, I am so happy to see your review! It is a big motivation for me to try more and more everyday. Such a lovely and interesting day traveled together with two of you! Have a nice day! Tony
Tony was a wonderful guide. It's a long day but doing both tours together. But Tony's knowledge and wit made the day extra special. The visit to the art factory and pagoda was a special bonus which we weren't expecting. I would definitely recommend Tony as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy to see you like the extra stops. It was an interesting and wonderful time with two of you. Special Thanks and Best Wishes! Tony
We had a great time in Saigon, we did learn a lot from Tony and would book him again. Amazed with Saigon!

Tony was a great guide and put together a very nice tour Mekong Delta/Ben Tre tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was an interesting and wonderful time with all of you. Special Thanks and Best Wishes! Tony
Two wonderful days (Vung Tau & Saigon) with our Guide Tony. Our pick-up and drop offs at Phu Me Port went seamlessly. We visited all the places on our Itinerary, plus other points of Interest chosen by our Guide, including delightful lunch venues. He was extremely helpful and informative and made our visit to Vietnam a truly memorable experience. The comfortable air-conditioned car was also much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tony T as a Guide Thank you Tony Paul & Maria

Gerald KlapperUnited States
Tony T. was the most enthusiastic guide we have ever hired. You could actually see how much he loves his job and is thrilled to show, as he would say, "My City". Tony T. took us to the Cu Chi tunnels and was very informative. After spending time at the Cu Chi Tunnels, Tony T. took us back to Ho Chi Minh City and give us a tour of the City. We would highly recommend hiring Tony T. to those wanting to see The City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kindness! I am very happy and interesting to be your local tour guide in "My City". Saigon and I miss you now! All the best! Tony
Patrick HarrisonSeattle, WA, United States

Dianne SpeakeUnited States
Tony gave us a fabulous tour of Saigon, explaining the history of Vietnam and the progress and challenges faced by the Vietnamese people over the past 50 years. He was friendly and accommodated our request for chases to our itinerary. I highly recommend Tony as a guide for a one visiting Saigon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Kathleen, We’ve got such a nice day together! I really really really like your family - all so kind! Thanks and Best Wishes! Tony
Christine HoburgUnited States
Tony is very knowledgeable, and just plain fun to be around. It's hard to find someone who is both! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Tony, and learned so much about the language, the history, the economics - you name it, Tony knew it. The kids (13 and 11) also enjoyed Tony's approachable demeanor and interesting facts and stories. And (drumroll please) he found my husband fresh durian! No one else on our trip could find it since apparently it's not the right season, but Tony did!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Christine, Such a super nice review! It is sooo great to hear that your family did enjoy everything from the tour so far. I am very happy to have your family as the first group of the local new year with lots of laughing... A special THANKS to your family! Best Wishes! Tony
Alison KinanyUnited Kingdom
Our recent trip to Vietnam was one we will remember forever. Tony was a fantastic guide. My Dad loved his history lesson on the way to Saigon. He was very understanding of our group he planned the day perfectly and made changes when the kids tired of site seeing. The lunch provided was one of our highlights. Carved foods were amazing the chicken made of a pineapple was the best. Tony helped us barter and get a great deal on souvenirs. We were his 99 tour I hope everyone gets a chance to meet Tony. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a super nice review! It's so great to hear that all your family members did enjoy the tour so far. SPECIAL THANKS for your words! I will always try my best to find better and the best places and suggest my customers on the tour way if I think it is suitable for my group. Love all. Best wishes! Tony
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Margaret Wong, I am so happy to hear from you. It's so nice to be the local guide of your group in Saigon. P/s: Hope to recieve your group again when coming back Vietnam in the future. I'll try more and more in every service. Best Wishes! Tony
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Darrell S.Saratoga, CA, United States
We would give Tony 6 stars if we could, as he exceeded our expectations! He was informative, gracious and accommodating. He was flexible and provided additional options to the tours that he sensed would be of interest to us. Although we had been in Saigon 9 years ago, he showed us the progress and development of the current Saigon. He was one of the BEST and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr&Mrs Darrell and Nee Ling Sniffen, Thanks so much for your kindness! It is a big motivation for me to try more and more everyday. P/s: Through the trip, all members in your group made me feel I am a youngest member in your family, not only a tour guide… When the trip was finished. The happiness has been conquered my mind till now. Love all!!! Thanks again and best wishes! Tony
Robert GourleyUnited States
Tony was a great tour guide with so much knowledge on the history and cultural beliefs of the people in Ho Chi Min city. We felt very safe with him and he made our day special. He was very flexible with what we wanted to see and the few changes we made to our itinerary.

Great days!

Michael ScottUnited States
Tony did an excellent job providing a varied and insightful day in Saigon. The included lunch was most enjoyable as was our afternoon coffee. Tony is intelligent, kind and warm. After spending the day with him we really felt a connection with him and his country. Over the years we have never been disappointed by Tours by Locals, but Tony may be the best guide we have had the pleasure to work with! We recommend him without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Michael! Such a super nice review with a special 5 star rating! It is so great to hear that you did enjoy everything from the tour so far. A special THANKS from Tours by Locals and me to two of you! Best Wishes! Tony
We enjoyed our tour and found Tony to be informative and chatty. We took our 4 teenage children who especially enjoyed the visit to the coconut factory. During the visit to the farm we enjoyed the fresh fruit and the opportunity to make fresh sugar cane juice. There was also some local entertainment but unfortunately as it was in Vietnamese it was a bit lost on us. Overall and long but enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr and Mrs Sonya Anson, Very very happy with the word 'ENJOY' appears four times in your nice review. Really like your family and best wishes! Tony
Elaine GraysonUnited Kingdom
Unfortunately we found it difficult to understand the tour guides English. The tour of the Cu chi tunnels was very disappointing didnt really feel that we had been given enough time or information. Second day tour of Ho Chi Min was very much better
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir and Madam, Thanks for your rating! I am glad to hear you like the city tour very much. Yes, I accepted we maybe did not get enough time in the tunnels (1 hour 47 minutes totally - GPS checked) because of the tunnels closing time. We returned and reached the cruise around 8:00pm on the heavy traffic jam day as well. Best Wishes! Tony
Amir Muzhafar Bin Abdul HamidSingapore
Extensive knowledge on the history of Vietnam, and very exceptional itinerary which includes boat rides, candy factory and fruit picking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Amir, Thanks so much for visiting my hometown! Yeah, we got the full day with a lot of laughing together... Hope to welcome you to Vietnam again. Best wishes! Tony
Robert HughesUnited Kingdom
Tony was an excellent guide with good local knowledge and very helpful and friendly.

David K.United States
Instead of travelling to Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City on our cruise ship excursion, we chose to skip the streets clogged with motorcycles and set off for the Mekong delta. Picked up at the port, we road 2.5 hrs to the delta for a delightful day learning about life in the delta, travelling on motorized and paddled boats, seeing a private folkloric show, picking and tasting tropical fruits at the orchard of the guide's uncle. Gourmet lunch-vegetarian specially for us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a nice review with a special 5 star rating! It's so great to hear that you did enjoy the tour so far. A special " THANKS " and best wishes! Tony
Kelvin Dik Hin TamSingapore
Tony is such a very informative and entertaining tour guide totally no dull moment! From the time we boarded our very own personal private car we felt like a VIP as he definitely takes good care of us and made us try majority of the local delicacies and street foods made by local housewives. I fell in love with the country so much and having Tony by our side was incredible. We weren't very familiar will all their customs and Tony was there to let us experience how it's like living in Vietnam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yeah! We've got the great time in a long day trip together. Will miss two of you so much because of some special things...!!! Best Wishes! Tony T.
Sue MenkesUnited States
FABULOUS!!! In the 70 countries we have visited & countless tour guides,Tony ranks as one of our top 3 guides! A wealth of knowledge, Tony also shared his unforgettable personal stories about his family, growing up during the Vietnam war as a little boy, & more. The Cu Chi Tunnels & Mekong Delta is one of the most interesting & exciting tours we have ever experienced! A long day, but a MUST for those who have seen the basic Ho Chi Min City tour, & want incredible adventure & insight to Mekong village life
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So great to see your review! It is a big motivation for me to try more and more everyday. Such a lovely and interesting day travelled together with two of you! Have a nice day! Tony
Tony was great, really interesting and had really good historic knowledge. Very easy to deal with and was great for pushing the start back after we had flown in late the night before. Would use him again when we return to explore more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Peter, So happy to see your review! Love all! Warmly Welcome again and explore the real local life with my family and Mekong villages! Best Wishes! Tony
Christina AustinNew Zealand
We had a fantastic tour by with Tony in the Mekong Delta. Everything worked well despite having to have some flexibility due to the weather. He took us to some great family run enterprises where we got to see the rice paper making etc. All the food we had was great in particular both of the lunches. The tour was just for two of us so we felt well looked after and not herded around. The wet market is a must. Definitely recommend doing this tour especially if you need to maximize your time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much for visiting my hometown and give me a chance to introduce the villages @ Mekong Delta! Do you remember the two ladies who sell the fried rice cakes where we'd stopped then made and fried some cakes by ourselves? They did talk to me about you (so clever, friendly... you did make the perfect cakes, better than me a lot....) That is my sweet memory as well! Best Wishes! Tony
Armando AlcazarUnited States
Tony is very accommodating to his customers' needs. He guided a group of us (23) for two days in Saigon. Every one in the group was most complimentary of Tony's knowledge and pleasant disposition. I recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Armando, About me, I really like your group at the first time we met at the airport. All of you are so polite, very friendly... I did feel so warm to be your group local tour guide. This is one of my sweet memories of the year! Love all! Best Wishes! Tony
Will SchwarzUnited States
We just spent one of the greatest days of our lives thanks to our guide Tony, who took us for an action-packed one-day tour of the Mekong Delta, or as Tony calls it, "my hometown." Certainly, having someone with local knowledge is a big advantage. But Tony's warmth, humor, preparation and attention to detail made our day even more enjoyable. We did so much in a single day! Tony is a gracious, kind, considerate and genuinely funny person. Being able to spend time with him was a privilege and a joy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A warmly and deeply THANKS for your kindness review! To be your tour local guide is one of my sweet working days. Hope to recieve your family again next time to explore more days in Mekong and Vietnam as well. Best Wishes! Tony
Anders NorlinUnited States
Our guide took us to many memorable locations. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and experienced. He shared his home town with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Such a quick and very nice review with a special 5 star rating! It is so great to hear that you did enjoy the tour. Deep in my heart, all best wishes to you! Tony
Andie DelgadoUnited States
Tony is the best !!! He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, funny and kind. We had a limited amount of time in Saigon, so this tour was perfect. We covered the Cu Chi Tunnels then went to Mekong Delta where we saw a local honey farm, rode in horse and carriage, heard local music and went down the river in local boats.. I would definitely recommend Tony as he really went above and beyond for us. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better guide! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms Andie and Remy, A very much THANKS for your kind review! Sure, we got the wonderful trip together. Hope to recieve you again when coming back Saigon and Mekong. Best Wishes! Tony
Deborah G.United States
Tony took us on tour of the Cuchi tunnels. What an AMAZING day! He was waiting & met us right as we exited the ship (their company is allowed inside the cruise port & some aren't). VERY EASY! It does take a while to drive to the city from this port but worth the trip. Tony had a driver (very nice van BTW!) & was able to share things on the drive. So informative. Loved all the stops and info. He spoke great English. Shared family history, knew shortest lines, food stops, + our wants. HIGHLY recommend TONY!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir and Maddam, How can I forget you and Mr. Mike! You did make me so surprised because of the very first tourists to get off the ship. Sure, we got the Very Very nice time together. Such a nice day to remember! Best Wishes! Tony
Roger FreidlineMidland, TX, United States
Tony gave us an excellent two days of tours! He is knowledgeable about the area, traditions and attractions. The van and driver were also very good. We toured the Cu Chi tunnels, toured the Palace and saw so much more! I definitely recommend Tony.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A special "thank" for your kind review! With two days, we did visit many attractions around the city, tunnels and more... Next time to come back Saigon, I really love to bring you to visit my hometown for a certain real local homestay with my family... All the best wishes to you! Tony
Katherine SposatoHOUSTON, TX, United States
Tony was great at showing me around Ho Chi Minh on a last minute reservation. I wish there had been more walking around and less riding in the car, but he did a great job with an 8 hr layover. I would recommend using him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind comment! I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour. Best Regards, Tony
Colin KempUnited Kingdom
Tony was informed, interesting and very knowledgeable about Vietnamese history and culture. His tour was superb and included a "local lunch" which was the tastiest food we have enjoyed in Vietnam. The organisation including the driver and the routes chosen was also superb. I would highly recommend Tony.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr & Mrs Colin, It was very happy to be your local tour guide in Ho Chi Minh City. Sure, I've got the wonderful day with you. A special thank and best wishes to you! Tony

Thomas MarminsUnited States
Tony always showed concern about our interests and never rushed us through any of the sites. He showed us absolutely everything that we could have wanted and we spent the entire day and way into the evening with him. He provided great transportation and made sure we tasted local foods for dinner. We would recommend him highly to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Tom, Yeah! I am so happy to be your local tour guide around this city through many parts as the crowded place, the green land and the modern - quiet places... Sure. We've got the nice afternoon/evening together. I've really appreciated for your review. Thanks and Best Wishes! Tony
Thomas MarminsUnited States
Tony was great, we still have a hard time understanding how he covered so much ground in one day. His pace and use of our van was just right. We highly recommend him of any one that wants to see the sights and sounds of the city in a day. We started around noon when our ship docked and didn't get back until after 10pm and never felt rushed. The car and driver were great as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good Morning Sir & Madam! I greatly appreciate your kindness! And sure we got the great time together visiting a lot of places in Saigon. A nice evening and a sweet memory for me as well. Best Wishes! Tony
Andres IzquietaUnited States
great tour guide, very friendly, punctual, insightful, and was able to show what's important and key to see all in a day. provided a very unique experience with the bike rides, something that entrenched you into the culture that was very memorable, way better than any typical 'tourist' type of tour and more local feeling.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Andres! Thank so much for your kind comment! I am so happy to see your feedback and will try more and more to give the better and better service to the customers in the future. Best Wishes! Tony T.
Hello Travelers We had an exceptional time in Ho Chih Minh with Tony, We travel on Diamond Princess on december to Ho Chi Minh, beautiful shore excursion. We were a family group with children of 14, he picked us up outside Phu My Port which highly decreased the cost of the tour, in a beautiful and comfortable 22 seater bus.He is an experienced guide, we all really enjoyed the tour. Do not hesitate on hiring him!! We highly recomend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Hernandez, Much appreciate your positive feedback about my tour services! Such a nice time to be your local tour guide in Saigon. Best Wishes to All! Tony
Fantastic tour !!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Tomasz Breitkopf, I'd like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for choosing me as the local tour guide and I am so happy to see your good feedback as well. A Very Nice Day to You! Tony T.
Jon W.Sun City, AZ, United States
Great tour and great food during the tour. The Mekong delta is a very interesting place. Tony wanted to show us the area where he was born. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating so that we had to stay with the more traditional tour. But that was still very good. Being able to set your own pace and not have to wait for the loading/unloading tour bus of the cruise line's shore excursion, makes a private tour worthwhile. And a friendly and knowledgeable guide as Tony makes it unforgettable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear MrJon Wagner, I am so happy to see your review in the morning. It's sweeter and better than a delicious breakfast a lot! I am so lucky to be your local tour guide in my home-town. Best wishes and thanks for all! Tony
Tony was a super guide! We have limited time for our shore excursion and he helped us to use it in the best way. Trip to Mekong Delta is really amazing! I highly recommend it. The place where we had lunch is such a nice restaurant and the food was delicious!! Tony is a very nice guy, who explained us about his culture and traditions, and definitely made we really enjoy our visit in Vietnam.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms Leticia Urrutia. Appreciated so much for your comment! It is a great thing for me to make my service better and better. Best Wishes! Tony
Bradford BurgeUnited States
Tony was very cheerful and pleasant. His driver and Tony were professional. The driver drove safely and helped us get in and out of his van. Tony gave us a tour that we wanted. We visited several sites that were not visited by many tourist. He recommended 3 shopping places that were great and met our interests. Tony was informative and increased our knowledge of his country. Tony and his driver were excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Brad, Thanks so much and very appreciated your kindness to give me a 5! I am so lucky enough to be the local guide of this tour. I would like to send "A SPECIAL THANK" to your family. Hope to welcome you again soon, when you come to Vietnam! Best wishes! Tony
Fook Weng NgMalaysia
Tony is a very good guide, unassuming and casually approachable to our sincere liking. We enjoyed his r edition of the recent history of Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City. He also shared with us local cuisine and attractions. We particularly like his humour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Just waked up in the early morning and saw a very good review. It is the most happiness thing in this life. A special THANK to Mr/Mrs. Fook and your sister as well! Tony
This was fantastic. Tony was an excellent guide giving us a great insight into the history and current culture of Vietnam and the region. We loved his conversation and would love to have him show us through the rest of Vietnam. He paced the trip according to our needs and we really felt it was tailored to our interests. The food was delicious. Plenty of bottled water was provided. Tony was punctual and the vehicle was immaculate. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Book him now!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dear Mr. Glen and Mrs. Amy, Thanks a lot for your very kind! I am so lucky enough to be the local guide of this tour. I would like to send "A SPECIAL THANK" to your family. Your comment is a big motivation for me to try more day by day to give the better trips in the future. Hope to welcome you again soon! Best Wishes!Tony
Ana RicciDesign Center, Guatemala
Tha excursión was very good and the tour guide excellent. The only problem was that he did not check the port we docked in and was waiting for us in another port at 70 miles distance. We called him and we met downtown 2 hours later. Everything worked out fine after that. He tried to make up for the mistake and he really did his best effort. Great Tony!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ms. Ana Quinonez, I am so happy to hear from you. I'd like to send A SPECIAL THANK to you and your group because of your kindly understanding. It's so nice to be the local guide of your group in Vietnam. P/s: Hope to recieve your group again when coming back Vietnam in the future. I'll try more and more in every service. Tony T.
Stacy BarthelUnited States
Tony and his driver were prompt and he was clear on where to met him. Tony's agenda for the tour was very informative and interesting. The driving in Viet Nam can be scary but we never felt in danger. Tony's has personal insight to the Mekong Delta and can speak about personal experiences. We stopped at local stands to see and experience local flavor and see how people live. Tony's English were very good and we had no difficulties understanding his detailed explanations.

Tony was able to show my husband parts of Saigon that he remembered from serving there during the Vietnam War. He rearranged the schedule to make sure that this happened and also so we could have a special lunch. My husband had waited 45 years for this experience and Tony made it possible! True meaning of an "individualized" tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Marylou Burngarner, Thanks a lot for your very kind! First, I am so lucky enough to be the local guide of this tour. Second, I feel look like a family's member while travelling with your husband and you. I would like to send "A SPECIAL THANK" to your husband about the real information of Saigon in the past. It would help me a lot for my job in the future. Best Wishes! Tony T.
