South Africa Self-guided Tour Reviews

Exceeded expectations! South Africa.
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“The travel specialist was given a huge challenge to arrange a 5 week holiday for us in South Africa with some very specific places we wanted to visit. It was prepared to listen to our demands and also to advise on many things that we were unsure about. We stayed in 14 different places all together and the accommodation arranged for us was perfect. The car hire was also arranged for us and our itinerary planned in detail with maps and detailed driving instructions given. Essentially, for a long complicated holiday we did not experience any problems and the agency obviously played a key role in this with their prior arrangements. This allowed us to focus on enjoying the whole holiday, which is one of the best we have ever had! Thank you, travel expert!”
