I have a group of five that will be participating in this group trip. I would like to visit your venue and take the group on an excursion with your company. My plan is to include this excursion on Friday, September 25, 2015 during the day. Please give me a time and the cost per person to participate. I would like to have that info by Wednesday, July 15, 2015 so the promotional for the trip can be released to the group. Thanks.
