When I started pursing an event with a private group of 180 on Alcatraz it seemed next to impossible, however working with John at Hornblower changed everything. John was very patient in taking All my calls and timely in answering all my concerned email. Alcatraz is a national park and is great to visit but their top priority is the park, not hospitality. John's relationship with Alcatraz made planning smoother than working one on one with them alone. John's experience in event planning and tenure with Hornblower is what made my event possible, I would gladly refer him to any of my colleges, friends and family to work with.
