Great Opportunity to get an overview of the Cape Region

Our tour guide Gerhard Pretorius gave us lots of interesting information about the areas we travelled through. He was very carefully planning our days, arranging restaurant visits, tour activities and re-confirming accommodation. He kept everyone well informed about the schedule. Our group was getting along very well with each other so all of us had dinner together with the tour guide every night. The restaurants proposed by the tour guide were all excellent and very special. Most likely, someone travelling individually on the Garden Route would not find these nice places. Since this was a combination of Garden Route and Wine Tour, we changed bus and tour guide in Stellenbosch. Our new tour guide Moudi and the new group were also very pleasant and again we all had a good time having dinner together. All the activities were exactly as advertised and we enjoyed them very much.
