This was an absolutely fabulous tour. The Halls and Walls were an absolute delight to travel with. We had so much fun together and the tour was a non stop enjoyable event. We experienced much together and shared much as to what was happening in South Africa today. The fun on tour was contagious to say the very least. This was truly a fun event per minute tour and the memory of this journey is going to stay with me for a long time.

THANKS FOR ALL
