Great final photo on this tour of Donna and Buzz with False bay in the back ground while we ere on our way to Hermanus
After arriving in Hermanus I took Donna and Buzz to the Birkenhead Hotel where we unfortunately had to bid each other farewell.
Donna and Buzz were great people to tour with. We had much fun together and had lots of wonderful experiences on the Cape Peninsula, Cape Winelands and on the way to Hermanus. One of the highlights of our journey was our visit to Kayamandi which I think will remain with the Rukins for quite a while. All in all this was a wonderful tour with excellent weather and great company to enjoy the best that the Western Cape has to offer.
THANKS FOR A GREAT 4 DAYS
