Happy Travellers

I can trust on you blindly.......

Excellent.... the word which can be used for your arrangements.
To be very frank, I haven't expected such a nice services from you at the time of booking the tour but your confidence to provide the best has led me to book this trip with you and you have really proved it. 
Not a single time we had to wait for anything, though the full trip has been shared by three different suppliers, all have performed the best work. Not a single minute waiting for a driver. They are always 10 minutes early then the scheduled time.
Talking about driver cum guides they always behaved as if we are their friends or relatives, they haven't looked at itinerary or timing. Just tried to provide best to the extend they can. Even small-small things has been taken care by them. Even purchasing of local sim, water, food etc was been taken care very nicely. All the guides are well experienced and they really know their work and duty. All of them posses a good amount of knowledge of their particular area. And the best part what we noticed is they are always updated and most of the time we saw them reading books to improve their services. April (Joburg) was reading the book of History, Chrish (Kruger) was reading nooks of wild life, Pierre (Garden rout) himself is a professor and always keep on enhancing his knowledge. I have always saw them passionate to give us best service and have never worked just to finish the itinerary.
The best guide we have ever met is Pierre. The way he has managed our trip, no one would have done it. He always had information for weather forecast and accordingly he planned our itinerary to cover all the attractions. The best part was Table mountain, if he has not planned it, we would have surely missed that. You really need such kind of guides in your contract. 
And the most important thing which I have never expected (sorry for this) is your messages on daily basis for schedule, places to cover, and guidance of the attractions and restaurants. If you would have not suggested, we would have missed out some of the important attractions in our tour which are must do things. A big Thanks for this..... 
I had just tried your services for this tour and now I would say, you would be our first preference for all the future trips. I can trust on you blindly....

Modern humans have resided at the Southern tip of Africa for than 100000 years and their ancestors were there for some 3.3 million years. South Africa history is divided into two phases based on broad patters of technology named Stone Age and Iron Age. In 1652, the Dutch East India Company landed the first European settlers on the Cape of Good Hope introducing a colony that by the end of the 18th century numbered about 15000. In 1795 the pilgrims attempted to set up an independent republic. In the wake of assuming control over the Cape Colony in that year, Britain took lasting belonging in 1815, toward the finish of Napoleonic Wars, bringing in 5000 pioneers.In 1867 the discovery of diamonds and gold brought a flood of “outlanders” nine years later into the republics. The discoveries led to new conflicts leading to an open warfare between Boer settlers and the British Empire, fought fundamentally for control over the nascent South African mining industry. As the Boer got defeated in South African war, the Union of South Africa was created as a self-governing dominion of the British Empire on 31st May 1910 in terms of the South Africa Act 1909, which united the four previously separate colonies named Cape Colony, Colony of Natal, Transvall Colony and Orange River Colony. South Africa became a completely sovereign country state within the British Empire. After decades of armed struggle, terrorism and international opposition, the African National Congress achieved victory in the country’s first democratic election.

South Africa is a famous tourism destination and the industry accounts for a considerable amount of the country’s revenue. It is a land of rich history and geographical diversity. South Africa tourism has the ideal mix of wildlife, adventure sports, coastlines, wineries and deserts. All of this is set against a bold cultural past that’s gone through up’s and down’s.
