A personalized gift for Lloyd:
Note: Lloyd and I communicated by email for several months prior to his arrival. He sent me detailed recollections, facts, figures, war-related and cultural triva of that time in American life, and even photos of his early life and his time on the battleship, USS North Carolina. Using all of that fascinating info--and unbeknownst to Lloyd while I was doing it--I compiled his 1945 war experience, and chronicled his hero's return in 2014 and, once he landed on Guam, I presented him with a personalized surprise: a paperback book I rush printed entitled From Bugle Boy to Battleship! | Read more about the hero's welcome on Saipan, and the special treat I arranged on Guam (See Saipan Tribune tribute: pdf | jpg)
(Now, I can't promise you that I'll write a book about your life when you come to Saipan, but we can discuss it when I see you!)
Every customer is unique. Some have unusual requests for their visits to Saipan, Tinian, Pagan and Guam--everything from simply fiding unique accommodations and transportation to locating specific individuals for genealogical research, or historical/cultural artifacts for study, to visiting "off limits" areas, and doing unique activities!
Whatever your unique request, my mission is to "make it happen" for you. In the process, I do everything I can --leveraging professional as well as personal contacts, calling in favors, harnessing my experience in unrelated industries and backgrounds--to make your request come true.
As a result, you may end up enjoying a tour experience that doesn't currently exist, and that likely will not be offered to anyone else in the future in quite the same way!
That's my Discover Saipan advantage, and that's what you pay for!
The best part of my trip was interacting with other people on Saipan, whether they be hoteliers at Mango Resort, Walt (guide extraordinaire), or the staff at American Memorial Park. Of course, this is set in a amazing island atmosphere with gorgeous Pacific sunrises and sunsets. From the flame trees to the mango trees, fromthe World War II bunkers to ancient Chamorro stones, Saipan has it all. Even though I am an experienced solo traveller, it was fun to spend a day without having to be completely immersed in the decision making. I would definitely recommend Walt's guide services.
"Wolfgang and Gloria in the woods!"
"Kay and Barbara at Bird Island !"
"Globetrekkers, Patricia, Neil, Del, Linda and Marcia (front) on Saipan!"
"Native tour guide, Laila, describes daily life (and where to find the island's world famous hot peppers) on Tinian to Marcia, Patricia, Linda and Del!"
(ask about our Tinian tours, as well as the remote, pristine island of Pagan!)

"I was surprised at the amount of history, both World War II and island history that Walt was able to orally pass on as well as show me. Saipan and Tinian are different from Guam, Walt was able to explain the different backgrounds and how they play out in today's society. Reading about the history and then daily life of a location like Saipan doesn't have the same impact as being there, touching history and putting ones self in the place where that history happened. That's why I went, and that's what Walt was able to deliver for me. Thanks for a fascinating and fun two days!"--D.D.
