I met the Cavallo family at their place of stay in Camps Bay (1st Crescent). After becoming acquainted we set off on our planned winelands tour.

After visiting the winefarms of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek we went on a short tour of Stellenbosch whereafter we made our way back to Camps Bay.
What an awesome family the Cavallo's were to tour with. It was a fun a minute ride for all on board and in the process much was learnt about the Cape Winelands region. Together we shared so much and did this all in the most enjoyable manner. This was a great ride for me and it is going to be very, very hard to forget the participants board. Martyn and Julie were the perfect parents while Clay, Davis and Cooper-Mae just stood out as children who knew how to have good, clean fun wherever they went. To top this all Nancy was an absolute riot who just did not know what it meant to stop having a good time. What a great ride this was for me and I hope for all on board. JJ
THANKS FOR THE WONDERFUL TIME WE SPENT TOGETHER
