Awesome tour guide

By: SLW


Reviewed on: 22 Jul 2016

We participated in the Winelands Tour and the Cape peninsula tour…both were perfect for our family and enjoyed tremendously by all. Andrew was so friendly and full of pertinent information about whatever activity we were doing or whatever location we were visiting. We asked him to join us for lunch on our last tour because his company was so pleasant and fun! Our flight back to the US was cancelled which created much stress for me, but one call to Trans Africa got everything handled smoothly in terms of rebooking our connecting flight and airport transportation, etc.

Trans Africa Safaris did a wonderful job. I met Cheryl and spoke with Sharon. All logistics fit together seamlessly. Sharon kept in touch by phone and provided excellent guides and accommodations. This type of trip could not have been arranged by me, or I think most other travelers, on my own.

Trans Africa was "there" tracking our trip progress from the moment we landed in Joburg. The seamless hand-off from one guide to the next made our travels so relaxing. We loved the hotels and reserves that they chose for us!

This was a VERY complex trip, with lots of places to go and stay. We can not say enough about how perfectly every aspect was handled. We were literally never without a private guide or assistant. We've visited all 7 continents and 93 countries and this was the best executed tour ever! Hats off to Trans Africa Safaris!

We followed the recommendation of our travel advisor, we were very satified with the service. The Tintswalo Safari Lodge and safari experience was five star, excellent staff and service. Prompt transfer from Hoedspruit Airport and very helpful pre-travel advise.
