What Our Amazing Customers Have Said
“Thanks For The Memories!”
We have enjoyed quite a few native cultural performances on many Caribbean islands as well as Tahiti over the past number of years. We believe the Highland Paradise presentation is the best we have been to – specifically the excellent integration of the local tribes’ history so enthusiastically and realistically presented to us throughout the evening.
Your facilitator/leader was stellar – a great knowledge of his history combined with quick humour we sure enjoyed. The entire show was magnificent and only wish we could have found a CD or download of the singing of the young performers along with the drums. For us it was a wonderful evening and as one famous singer/actor once sang
