I met Steve and Sue at Davids Guesthouse and after becoming acquainted we decided to do a Cape Peninsula tour as the weather seemed to be in our favour for this experience.

On arrival in Cape Town I dropped Sue and Steve off at the Africa Cafe off for dinner before saying goodbye to them.


It was a fabulous experience to tour with these two wonderful folk from Yorkshire, whose peoples still remain one of my all time favourites in terms of those travelling with me. Steve and Sue most certainly only enhanced the position of Yorkshire and its people as travelling companions with their wonderfully polite style of accomplishing all. We had three wonderful days together where we all gained a lot from one another but most importantly I believe the Lanes truly got to see what the real South Africa was about. Great ride with two great people.

THANKS A TON
