Absolutely fantastic. That's the only way to describe what it was like to travel with the Merril's. There has got to be be something about New Yorkers that just makes them wonderful travelers as this was my second tour in a row with New Yorkers who just were amazing to travel with. We had a great two days together and I felt that just one more day with the Merrills would have really made our Cape Town journey a complete one but alas they only had two days in our city. What more can I say other than they just will have to come back one day.

JONATHAN , SANDY AND EVE,

A BIG THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR TIME TOGETHER IN CAPE TOWN SO MEMORABLE. 


Received 5 August 2007

Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful 2 days
in Capetown. You made the city and country come alive,
you were exceptionally knowledgeable about so many
subjects, and you really enriched our brief stay here
in your beautiful city. Thanks again!

Also wanted to let you know that when we were at the V
& A Waterfront, we passed the movie theatre and one of
the movies that was now playing was "Amazing Grace",
the movie about Wilber Wilburforce and the abolition
of slavery in England that we mentioned to you. So you
can see it sooner rather than later, since it's
playing here right now. Hope you find it as
interesting as we did.

Take care and thanks again.
Sandy, Jonathan, and Eve
