In 1997, we were introduced to Patrick Hinchy
as our tour director.
The tour went well and everyone on the tour was very pleased with the tour in general, with special praise going to our tour director.
We found that Patrick Hinchy
is extremely knowledgeable on WWII history, as well as European history.
In addition, he
has a pleasing personality; he
is especially adept at handling any adverse or challenging situation that comes along; he
really does his
homework on the pre-tour arrangements; and he
is flexible, accommodating as many requests as possible.
In 1999 Patrick Hinchy
was not available to direct the tour.
Although the tour went quite well, it was lacking the personal touch that Patrick
would have provided.
In planning the last three tours 2001, 2003, and 2004 we have used MilSpec Tours
, operated by Butch Sincock in the Philadelphia area.
In each case, it was with the understanding that our tour director would be Patrick Hinchy.
These three tours have been the best, and the participants have been most complimentary.
Due to the "older" age of most participants, the pace has slowed somewhat.
About the only complaints I have received pertain to the length of the days' activities.
has taken this into account and now plans earlier returns to the hotel and earlier dinners, so that there is more time for resting and sleeping.
In addition, the problem has also been alleviated by scheduling the tour so that, in general, we stay in each hotel for at least two nights and sometime three or four.
with Patrick Hinchy take immense care in making arrangements for lodging, food, receptions, etc.
The results are obvious, as the hotels and the many people involved in receiving us have been well prepared and remarkably hospitable.
My work with both Butch and Patrick
has been a distinct pleasure and a highlight in my service as Secretary-Treasurer and CEO of the National Timberwolf Association
over the past 13 years.
Butch and Patrick
, I thank you for your great help and support!
