How do we keep our rates so low? By giving up a homebase years ago we save you the additional travel expenses. Plus, we eliminated the middleman (a.k.a. booking agent) who mark up costs and make matters confusing. When you call to book or ask any questions, you deal directly with the creators/directors.
