Dinner at the Africa Cafe

This was a wonderful group of friendly Aussies. They were all full of great fun to tour with and before we knew it our tour was over. So short! L Wish we had more time together but the schedule of the group, who had a wedding to attend in Durban, just did not allow it. All in all a fab day spent with some awesome people.

Hello Selwyn

They are great photos of our trip and our tour of Cape Town.

We certainly wouldn't have seen anywhere near as much nor had the momentous experiences without your help and expertise. It was better than we ever expected and we all hope to come back to your beautiful part of the world 
one day. Your knowledge of the history and the people added another 
dimension to our trip. What wonderful memories we have of Cape Town and surrounds, thank you for  sharing with us.

Kind regards

Margaret and John Batson and friends
