This was a great 2 day tour for me as a tourist guide as I found Catherine to be a lady with a great sense of humour who was very easy to get on with.  She definitely was "my kind of travel person" and we clicked instantaneously after starting our travels on the Cape Peninsula as well as in the Winelands. We had much in common and shared lots together resulting in two wonderful days of touring through the fabulous Cape Town and surrounds region. Great, great tour

THANKS FOR ALL CATHERINE
