We arrived back into Heathrow at 05.15 on Sunday which was the conclusion to an absolutely fabulous holiday. We can not thank you enough for your assistance and advice surrounding our trip. All the accommodation was enjoyed and everything went smoothly. Floreal House is just lovely, so well situated and with great staff. The same can be said of La Fontaine, so glad we took in Franschhoek as you suggested. Had a great drive along the R62 and even took in Ronnie's Sex Shop. De Zeekoe at Oudtshoorn was beautiful, Meerkats and Caves went well, but probably our favourite visit of the lot was Magic Moments. If you are not aware of this then try it and consider directing travellers their way as they deserve the support. Such a lovely evening. St James in Knysna was brilliant as was The Robberg at Plettenberg Bay. The Boardwalk gave us a nice days rest before flying out. Sorry to go on but we were buzzing about the trip and throughout we reflected on the advice and help you gave us. It was greatly appreciated with a quality very much in keeping with our expectations.
