Reviews

When Tom Edgerton sold his company, I heard he sought and found a family owned business (Legacy) committed to his standards of quality travel and superior customer service. After experiencing the National Parks tour, after meeting the new owners in Decorah, Iowa, after having that new owner deliver my luggage to my room at the Hotel Winneshiek, I am convinced Tom's legacy continues.
