What a way to end a tour!


It was absolutely fabulous to tour in Cape Town with Rob and Kim. They were a wonderful couple who wanted to learn as much as possible about my city. 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 expereince of being with such a wonderful young couple made the whole experience a very, very memorable journey.

This couple are going to go very far in life - Mark my words!


THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL
ROB and KIM
