Traveller Reviews

  • Our stay in Hermanus, at Schulphoek was beyond our expectations. Our host and hostess were most helpful and we will not forget the trips into their private wine cellar and the delicious meals prepared by their talented chef. We will never forget the delight of returning to our room each night to find lavender sprigs arranged on our pillows.

  • Thank you for such a fantastic opportunity to spend time In South Africa. This was my first visit and everthing was perfect. The accomodations were excellent and your attention to detail was superb. Our decision to hire a car allowed us to tour the counrty at our leisure and not feel rushed or under time constraints - a true vacation. The mapped itinerary was our lifeline to our planning. You did an amazing job for us.
