Touring through the Cape Town region with Helen was a wonderful pleasure. We enjoyed so much together and shared so much that our journey together became a great experience to both of us. Helen picked up on all that we did so quickly and she really loved the great scenery that the Cape Town region offers.  On  its own simply gearing her say "wow" every time we saw a big visual scene made the ride worthwhile for me. If you ask me I think Cape Town knocked Helen over and took her breath away. JJ

Overall this was a wonderful tour for me to do and I hope that Helen enjoyed herself as much as I did.

A HUGE THANK YOU HELEN

and

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU FOR YOUR VERY GENEROUS HELP FOR THE PEOPLE OF KAYAMANDI.
