I met My and Phil at the Peninsula Hotel and we decided to dodge the bad weather on the day and travel to Hermanus via the Stellenebosch and Franschhoek region.

Fabulous tour with a fabulous couple. Phil amn My were an absolute pleasure to take around the Western Cape over 2 days. They were always interested in all around us and enjoyed the magnificent visuals that were always surrounding us.I know that I had a great time with them while I am on tour and can only hope they felt similarly. Great 2 day tour with 2 wonderful Aussies.
