What an amazing trip. We were so well looked after from the moment we were picked up at Johannesburg Airport until we were dropped back there 3 days later. Accomodation provided was excellent and the meals and entertainment first rate. The open vehicle game drives were superb, got to see the "Big Five" as our driver/guide knew exactly where to... More

Preparing for a visit to Cape Town, I booked a half-day Winelands tour with Viatour, who used Thompsons Africa as their local provider. Was told I was the only person signed up and the tour would be canceled if no one else registered. A few days later, got an email from Thompsons via Viatour saying I could take the trip... More

Gaston was our guide for both our half day tour of the city and our full day pennisula tour. We were lucky to have Gaston all to ourselves for our half day tour. Gaston shared his wealth of information about the sites as well as life in South Africa with us. He kept us smiling and laughing throughout! No question... More

Zade, a remarkable guide, entertained us the entire day, going beyond his original itinerary to make this experience very special. He responded to our wishes, let us into his world, and showed us the interior of this area, including his experience in the transition of South Africa. He let us wander in a lovely, famous garden at one of the... More

We did the full day Peninsula tour in Cape Town. Our driver Derek Lines arrived early for our pickup and was very knowledgeable as he pointed out specific sites that we passed. We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour so Derek was happy to modify the tour at our request and include a couple of the... More

My wife and I joined a group of fellow Americans for a Thompson's all-day tour of the Stellenbosch wine area, including stops at 4 wineries. We enjoyed wine, cheese and biltong. Ray was a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. We especially liked the stop in town of Franschhoek founded by French Huguenots. A day very well spent:)

We've just got home from South Africa, having had a wonderful holiday. We booked our holiday through Virgin but Thomson's Africa were the company who took over on our arrival in Capetown. We did the 10 day Grande Garden Route which was absolutely wonderful and our guide was Irshaad Gaffoor (Ish to us). Honestly you couldn't meet a nicer guy,... More

We participated in an all day safari at Kruger National Park. Start was before sunrise (6:00 am) and ended after 4:00 pm. Our guide, Elvis, was very knowledgeable on the area and animals. Working with his team of three vehicles he position us into the perfect viewing location. While watching a few sedentary lions for a bit he noticed an... More

Brian was our tour guide for the day and was great. We went around the area of Cape Town to the south and eastern side. We got to learn from his experiences about the city and where they have been as a country. We got to see many different animals such as the baboons, ostriches, penguins (at the penguin colony),...
