The Lundstrom family were a fantastic family to tour with. We had lots of fun along the way of our being together and it was a great experience for me to share so much with this family. I found that the Lundstroms and myself had lots in common and overall what was most important was the fact that all 5 of us had a wonderful time together. I sincerely hope that they will return to Cape Town in 2010 for the World Cup.

Thanks for a great journey

Mats, Maria, Elin and Erik

Many wishes from a Sweden , we have snow today and 1 minus.
We want to thank you for a most wonderful, educational, and memorable
experience! It was surely the highlight of our trip for family Lundstrom.

Selwyn - you are the best tour guide ever. You showed us Cape Town in a
way that we will never forget. 

We had a fantastic evening in Africa Café - the food is an experience
which we all enjoyed 

We look forward to meeting you again next time we are in Cape Town!

With lots of love, and best wishes for your work into the future of
South Africa.
