I met Chris and Diana at Ezard House and it did not take me long to realise that this was going to be a wonderful tour with two wonderful people. We started out our day by doings a somewhat unusual route of first travelling to Hout Bay and Chapmans Peak whereafter we crossed over into Kirstenbosch and then returned to the city centre.

Chris and Diana were amazing people to travel with. There was not a minute of silence in the vehicle while we travelled for 3 days and they both had so much to add to our wonderful tour. We experienced some wonderful events with our journey in Kayamandi being a highlight for me and I suspect the Hart's too. This whole tour was really a fabulous experience for me and I can but only hope for Diana and Chris too. Fantastic experience that is always going to linger in my tourguide mind

A BIG, BIG THANK YOU

CHRIS and DIANA

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your most generous support for the children of Kayamandi as well as for offering to sponsor a child through the 2009 school year. A HUGE THANK YOU in this regard.
