She is incredibly knowledgeable

We’ve been on four OARS trips now, and Mindy Gleason has done an incredible job organizing all of them. When I book an OARS trip, I know that I don’t have to worry about a thing, and that my family (our two girls are now 11 and 13 , city slickers who can pitch tents and deal with groovers with the best of them) will have an amazing, best-in-a lifetime experience. Mindy answers questions about weather, insurance, flight info, hotel accommodation. She is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, never pushy, and always has time for us. We are trying to figure out a Galapagos trip now, and she is showing the patience of a saint. I’d never do a rafting trip with anyone else. She’s the best.

We had a great family adventure

Booked an adventure through the O.A.R.S. company. I have dealt with them before and had great results. This time worked with Mindy Gleason who spent a lot of time describing the trip and telling me the precise details necessary to arrange the trip successfully. She was patient even when I was indecisive. She did a great job and we had a great family adventure to Chilko Lake, British Columbia.
