I met Dan and Brenda at the quayside of the Cape Town harbour where their cruiseliner had moored. After becoming acquainted we took their baggage to the Raddison Hotel and set off on a Cape Peninsula tour.

We travelled on to Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Fishhoek and Simonstown where we stopped in at the Seaforth Restaurant for a great fish lunch.


After lunch we spent time at the penguin colony on Boulders Beach

After our visit to Chapmans Peak we travelled back to the Raddisson via Hout bay, Llandadudno, Camps Bay and Sea Point

It was a great experience to tour with these two wonderful folk from Dallas. With Dan and Brenda as company I most certainly had great fun on this Cape peninsula tour as they were great travelling companions with their wonderfully polite style of accomplishing all. We had a wonderful day together where we all gained a lot from one another but most importantly I believe that Dan and Brenda truly got to see what the real beautiful Cape Town was about. Great ride with two great people.

Now that the dreaded "jet lag" is over and we accomplished Xmas in under seven days....I felt compelled to let you know how you made an indelible impression on two first-time travelers to South Africa. We haven't stopped talking about you - or South Africa - since returning to Dallas. Your former clients are far better wordsmiths than myself, and they have sung your praises for years.....we just feel extraordinarily lucky to have spent time with you. It was, indeed, like being shown Cape Town by a friend.....albeit a very, very entertaining friend!

You were, of course, right about spending a wonderful time at Londolozi. We consider it a lifetime experience and consider ourselves extremely fortunate people.

Many thanks for your kind note. Now if I could only remember how to "scope" my teenage grandson and tell him why he's thinking about kangaroos eating oranges in Denmark!!! Lunch with you at Seaforth's was fun.

Being "all things to all people" is indeed quite a gift that you have. And....after watching "21" we just found ourselves with more questions that we would have asked you. Nice to leave the client always wanting more.

We couldn't have had a better time. Thank you.
