“We get a lot of travel writers on our tours and none have had the follow up and deliver on promises that you guys have done. Very impressive!” -Lindsay Prime (Manager of Vallarta Food Tours)
I was so impressed with Nick’s work the first time we worked together, in 2015 I asked him to produce a professional marketing video for my company ‘Dive Grenada’. I set a very strict format for what I would like to see as an end result for the video, not only did fulfil those parameters but he exceeded my expectations in both content and production quality. – Phil Saye (Owner of Dive Grenada)
“Thank you Nick!!! I love the video you made for us!! really cool!!! ” – Andres (Manager of Squalo Adventures)
