Skaris is extremely witty, knowledgeable, organised and entertaining.. he delivers what he sets out to achieve. He does more than required and always goes the extra mile, no questions.... there is no clock watching with him. he knows how to read people so not to interfere with their personal space and time.. (this take years of experience to achieve) He is friendly and very likable so guests are treated like Rock Stars in all venues he uses for meals etc... George makes a real effort to give guests their value for money and more. Because its his business and he is the man doing the guiding, driving, marketing, sales, delivery, he makes sure its 100% as its pride at stake.. i guess that is his success..
