JOIN NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPEDITIONS AND NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AUTHOR, PHOTOGRAPHER, TOUR LEADER, AND COSTA RICA EXPERT CHRISTOPHER P BAKER FOR AN EXCITING 9-DAY 'COSTA RICA: WILDLIFE & CONSERVATION' TOUR
“If clients had traveled with you before, they came to Cuba to experience it with you. If they hadn’t met you before, they’ll go out of their way to travel with you again in the future… We’re very much in need of a Christopher Baker!”
FORD COCHRAN, DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMMING, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPEDITIONS
“Donna and I traveled with you to Cuba with National Geographic. It was the best trip I have ever had – and being in the travel and tour agency business I think that says something! Donna and I just returned from a week at Necker Island with Richard Branson (I am a Virgin Galactic future astronaut.) That place is heaven on earth! While Cuba with you was the best trip ever, Necker Island was the best vacation ever.”
CRAIG C., NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPEDITIONS TOUR PARTICIPANT
“I have learned so much from you over the years, and I have so enjoyed our trips together. Particularly as I work with others and hold you as the benchmark for what ‘experts’ should be and do!”
