I collected this fabulous quartet from Bromley at the President Hotel and we immediately set off on a cultural tour in the winelands.
Our first stop was at the Afrikaans language monument in Paarl where we visited the monument and also went through the history of South Africa

After our journey we travelled home to Cape Town and the President Hotel
We travelled to Simonstown where the foursome did the Watertaxi ride back to Kalk Bay. We purposely did the journey back to front so as to accommodate the windy weather.
On arrival in Kalk Bay we stopped in at Kalkies for some fish and chips which we enjoyed with the many locals in the restaurant

Bubbly all round so as to celebrate two great days of touring
This tour was hot hot hot because the foursome of travellers were such a great fun group to travel with . We had a wonderful time together and I enjoyed touring Lin, Andy, Barry and Pauline immensely. This Bromley quartet were so easy going and full of fun that it would have been very hard to have failed in making their tour a a success. We had much fun ranging from touring to playing many number games and all in all our tour was in my opinion a top class success. I think that the foursome enjoyed our tour as much as I did and at the same time attained some great insights into what Cape Town, Kayamandi and its inhabitants were all about.
THANK YOU THANK YOU
Andy, Lin, Barry and Pauline
So now the poser who is better to tour with folk from Yorkshire of Bromley? - I guess its a draw. JJ

Thank you so much for the wonderful experiences you shared with us, we
have not stopped talking with each other and our families about your
wealth of knowledge. The photos you put on your gallery were fantastic
and will stay in our memories forever. Please can you confirm the
film,(I think it was 21?) and the book that inspired the film,as we
are all interested in knowing more about you Selwyn! We hope one day
to return to Cape Town, and trust that you will still be doing the
best tours that anyone would be lucky to experience.
We really enjoyed the remainder of our holiday, the panorama route, a
very rainy safari, where we did see two leopards, lions with a kill,
elephants, buffalo, zebra etc; Zambia was awesome, we went everyday to
the falls and have some amazing photos, we did an elephant back safari
and a sunset cruise on the African Queen?
We are all home safe and sound, recalling some incredible memories.
Thank you once again.
