David loves his guiding work and works regularly as a
Tour Guide and Coordinator for Destination Events on their
London New Year's Day Parade and Edinburgh Easter Parade events.

"We at Andover High School in Bloomfield Hills, MI were most fortunate to have had David Hall as our Resource Person and liason during our week long trip to Edinburgh and London in 2004. He is very bright, well spoken, and quite dedicated to the well being of the groups under his care. We were especially impressed with his "people skills" in handling demanding situations and soothing frayed nerves. We would be delighted to be associated with David in any capacity in the future.?

Robert H. Ambrose Director of Bands, Andover High School

"David is one in a million. His ability to communicate inter culturally is outstanding. It was our privilege to become acquainted with this remarkable man when our musical/comedy group traveled to London to perform in the New Year's Day Celebration. David was able to gracefully manage our performance group of enthusiastic American women while imparting valuable historic, logistic, and social information in an interesting and entertaining manner. We consider him to be a friend for life, and describe him as simply brilliant"!

Mikki Stevens, President, The Red Hot Mamas
