This trio from London were amongst the most sociable and fun loving people I have had on tour with me. They were wonderful to have in the vehicle as company while enjoying our township visit and Cape Peninsula sojourn. What more can I say other than "a BIG HUGE THANK YOU from me to Adam, Alan and Sarah for simply being such fun company while we explored the wonders of the Western Cape

What a wonderful pleasure this whole tour was!
