Katie "Wes is an absolute gem of a human, an absolute legend and absolutely the super star of the trip. His abilities to make everyone feel comfortable and keep everyone entertained and educated was amazing. Super whitty and funny and so educated on history and the Balkans area. Also to have such high energy and keep everyone energised is a hard task at the best of times but Wes made it seem effortless. ..."
