Traveller Reviews

  • The Grootbos experience was a great way to cap off the trip with the most amazing food! I only wish we had another night there. There was just too much to cram in to two nights, but we did the best we could!

  • We are back to Italy and had a wonderful trip. We really would like to thank you for the perfect choices you did and the perfect organization.we enjoyed everything and could have stayed much longer. Looks like we need to come back!!!

  • Groot Bos was equally impressive - we had a great time hiking through the milkwood forest. No luck seeing the whales (again, the weather) but we did get to see the limestone caves, which were fascinating. This was a great addition to the trip - I'm so glad we worked it in.
