    Excellent Tour-excellent tour guide-Bianca. We had lots of fun & the best experiences were first in Capetown, then the ostrich farm, the penguin colony, and an animal refuge centre. The meals were very good-breakfast was provided every morning and we... Show more

    Hello Janet. Thank you for your review on the South Africa Garden Route Tour. Whilst I am pleased to see you had a great experience on the trip, it is disappointing that the meals and transportation was not up to your expectations. We’ll continue to... Show more

    A minor point - the visit to Cango caves was clearly included in the itinerary, but we had to pay entrance fees (a small amount but slightly irritating). The Victoria Falls add-on was well worth doing and was the most memorable part of the whole... Show more
