    A great way to visit South Africa with more places visited and more flexibility than the regular crowded tours.

    Hi John. My son and I enjoyed your company and your sense of humour on your solo tour. You are right in saying solo travel is not ideal. Normally we require a min of 2 guests to run a tour but I did not want to cancel your tour so we opted to do it anyway. I just wanted to touch on your score of 2 for meals. During your tour 3 dinners were included and 4 were for your own account. The meals you had with us you were more than satisfied. Your described the ostrich dish as excellent and the barbeque, you said, was of the best you have ever had. I do know you had problems and disappointments with the meals you had on your own account and I think it a tad unfair to use those meals to review and score a 2. We had no say on where you chose to dine or what you ordered off the menu. I trust you are safely back in the UK and I wish England every success in the 6 Nations Rugby.

    It was a really nice experience and the guide had a lot of background knowledge that he could share.

    He showed us the most beautiful things in the garden route. And searched always for the cheapest things for us (we're students). He explained us a lot and gave …
