I met this young honeymoon couple at the Westin Hotel in Cape Town. After meeting up we soon became acquainted and even though there was a slight amount of rain we set out on a Cape Peninsula Tour

After our visit to the penguin colony we went back to Simonstown and bought some pies from Gogo's which we enjoyed at Rumbly Bay before moving on to Cape Point.

We ended off our evening and tour with a great pasta dinner at Il Leone restaurant


It was wonderful to tour in Cape Town, the winelands and Kayamandi with Paul and Anna. They were a fabulous couple who wanted to learn as much as possible about my city and country. At the same time while being on honeymoon they wanted to make their stay in Cape Town a very special one and I think that they definitely achieved this. We saw and enjoyed much together and for me the experience of being with such a wonderful young couple made the whole experience a very, very memorable tour.


THANKS A TON FOR A GREAT TOUR
PAUL and ANNA


Received 15 June 2009

 

Selwyn,

We are finally back in NYC and we just wanted to truly thank you for such a wonderful 2 days touring with you in Cape Town.  We really enjoyed ourselves and absolutely loved the Kayamandi township experience.  I hope that my friends will choose to take that tour with you in August.

We really had a great time on safari at Kirkmans and Indigo Bay in Mozambique was truly paradise.  Long 30 hour trip home yesterday but well worth it.  We really did enjoy South Africa and it was great to experience it with someone as knowledgeable about both the past and present South Africa.

Kindest regards,

Anna and Paul Armsby.
