“Chery and I wish to express our sincere thanks again for the time, knowledge, and enthusiasm you imparted upon us during our vacation in Africa. Our entire group came away very impressed and are sure to recommend your agency to all of our friends who look to experience what we enjoyed. Our best wishes to Sonia and you in all your endeavors. Take care and hope to see you again on our next visit to South Africa.”

- Joe Rosselet

“I’ve been meaning to write to thank you for taking such wonderful care of our group. It truly made the difference between an interesting trip and a fantastic one. We became all the more aware of your gifts when we encountered the guide who accompanied us from Johannesburg to Pilanesberg. He was not only ill-informed but also inarticulate — you truly spoiled us! It was such a pleasure to meet you! I am already scheming to find a way to return to South Africa, this time with Dean, who is eager to talk to you about Coetzee.”

- Darra Goldstein, Williamstown MA

“I just wanted to say hi and again thank you for the fantastic job you did for us during our 12 days in Cape Town. All my Norwegian customers were very happy with the tour and I think many of them will go back once again.”

- Tone Kristensen, Oslo

“We had a terrific time on our visit and enjoyed every moment with you. Of all the many guides we have encountered throughout the world, you are a rare and exceptional person – a true Renaissance man. Thank you for an exceptional tour.”

- Bob Knox, Boston

“Helen and I had a marvelous time! Both legs of the trip were great. We really enjoyed the beauty of Cape Town, the Peninsula and the Winelands (since we are all winos). John Lawrence gets an AAA+. He was the perfect guide: he knows a lot about everything, he listens to what we are saying and revises the schedule accordingly instead of sticking with his plan (like some guides). He couldn’t be more charming and he was so much fun (he even seemed to enjoy some of our humor). We have all invited him to come to the States for a visit! Thank you for finding him.”

- Tom Schoenenberger
