I met this great foursome at their place of stay in De Waterkant and after becoming acquainted we set off on a Cape Peninsula journey.

 

We stopped in for rooibos tea and cake at Cafe Matisse in Kalk Bay

The Whiteheads and the Driscolls were an absolute pleasure to tour with. They were decisive in what they wanted to do and as a foursome worked very well together. We had much fun along the way while seeing much of the Cape Town region as optimally as possible when it came to how much time we had together. Overall for me this was a lovely tour to guide and I had great fun doing so.

THANKS A TON

Selwyn,

Thank you for the kind note. As you noted, we all had a wonderful time in the Cape Town area and having you as our guide significantly enhanced our visit. You are very fortunate that you have such a beautiful city. 

Your involvement with the folks at Kayamandi is remarkable and they are lucky to have someone such as yourself helping them help themselves. Having said that, there obviously is much greater need and we will follow-up with you because Terry and I would like to find out more about what we can do. Once we get settled, we will send you a note.

Good luck with your all of your activities.

Regards,

Jeff
