Bob and Marion were a pleasure to tour with. They shared many of their own travel experiences with me while enjoying my city and this in its own right made this journey a very enjoyable one. All in all we had much fun together and I think that they left my country pleasantly surprised in terms of where the new South Africa was heading.  In summary this was a really pleasant tour.
