On our final Teddy and Any left for Durban so as to go on safari. The below picture was taken of the 3 of us in George airport


Teddy and Andy were great to travel with. They were very easy going and made a point of enjoying the wonderful scenery of the Garden Route and Cape Town. Andy's wit had me laughing most of the way while we were on tour and I even saw Teddy snigger every now and then at some of his funny quips. What amazed me about Andy was his ability with languages and his incredible facility of remembering lines form some of my favorite operas. All in all a very pleasant easy and enjoyable tour.

Dear Selwyn,

Many thanks for your last letter. 

The pictures on the website were fantastic! I cannot however can print it on my machine since it doesn't have enough capacity. We wonder whether we could impose on you again, and ask you to send us a copy of each of all the prints sent to us.

We truly experienced our trip to the greatest degree especially due to your expert handling of all the details. We didn't ever have to lift a finger! Many thanks once again from both of us.

Please convey our regards to your wife. We are unlikely ever to forget our
trip, mostly due to you.

All the best, Teddy and Andy
