TERESA, PHILADELPHIA

It would be fine for you to include us. We are still thinking about how wonderful the trip was and we often look at each other and say that we wish we were back at Mala Mala or the wine country. Please send us a copy of the newsletter.

By the way, we had a visit with the our friends over the weekend and their children were visiting from California so we had a lot to talk about. They also were thrilled with their trip. 

AL, PHILADELPHIA

Good to hear from you. We truly enjoyed it also–it was one of the most memorable and enlightening trips we’ve ever taken.
Thanks for the picture. After we were on our way and up in the air Teresa realized we had never taken a picture of you. That’s a real oversight.

Yes, the statuettes arrived–we haven’t unpacked them yet but they seem to be OK.

 

ROBERT, CINCINNATI

I have been traveling extensively during the past month so I hope you will forgive my delayed response to your e-mail. You can be certain that if we return to South Africa in the future, we will definitely use your company since we were completely satisfied. Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.Thanks for the picture. After we were on our way and up in the air Teresa realized we had never taken a picture of you. That’s a real oversight. 

MIKE, UK

Many thanks for sending us this Newsletter. The comments and photos brought back wonderful memories of the splendid guided tour that we enjoyed so much. In retrospect we came to realise that we did just the right thing in having a fully escorted tour as it gave us the unique opportunity see your beautiful country with a maximum focus of direction and a minimum of risk.
We are advising friends to do likewise when they come to South Africa.
I hope all goes well with you.

 

DAVID AND DOROTHY, NORTH CAROLINA

We had a wonderful time both on the whale watching tour and in our 3-day stay in Sanbona. We very much appreciate the work of Signature Tours in putting together well-organized packages, both for our conference group and for us personally.

 

FELICITY AND MIKE, UK

We arrived back safely in the UK earlier this week. We are missing the light and warm South African sun as it is now freezing and with snow lying in many parts of the UK. However the memory of the South African spring light and beautiful scenery is still imprinted on our minds and helps banish the cold.

Thank you so much for looking after us so well and being such an interesting tour guide. We enjoyed all our discussions and learnt much more about your beautiful country than we would without your insight.

Some wonderful memories are the views from table mountain, standing in the wind at Cape Point, whale watching, the garden in the Little Karoo, the passes in the Karoo, lunch at Prince Albert, the fynbos, the peace at De Zeekoe, Knysna in the storm, Storms River mouth, seeing elephants, rhinos, cheetahs and lions almost close enough to touch and a leopard playing with her cub in the early morning light.Kirstenbosch totally lived up to expectations.

We were very impressed with all our accommodation and the warm welcome we received everywhere.

So all in all thank you for putting together such an excellent package for us and for taking us on our adventure yourself.

We loved your country and hope that with all the determination we saw to succeed that the country will have peaceful and prosperous future. We do hope to return one day. In the meantime I will recommend you to any of our friends visiting South Africa.

 

DOREEN AND JOSPHAT, KENYA

We had a wonderful stay in Cape Town. You selected the best hotel for us and each morning we sat outside for breakfast and sometimes enjoyed just watching people walk along!
We visited beautiful places and truly we will come back, God willing.

 

RAY, IRELAND

Altogether the best holiday ever. Again thanks and your name will be given to anyone I know who is going in the direction of South Africa.

 

MICHELLE, UK

I wanted to say thank you so very much for the wonderful time that you gave the Management Team. Everyone was absolutely overwhelmed with the hospitality and how well organised the trips were. There was great admiration for Esther, the tour guide – everyone told me that she was fantastic and they were amazed at the fantastic service that Signature Tours offered.
I really appreciate everything that you did to help me Jannie and to make this trip effortless.

 

ROBERT, USA.

John was an excellent tour guide. Personable, knowledgeable, willing to talk about and give us insight into South African politics, his life and his feelings. The fee paid was competitive and fair and well worth the money spent.

 

LYNNE, AUSTRALIA

What a great holiday we had. South Africa is a beautiful country. We loved Cape Town. All the tours were wonderful but I particularly enjoyed going to the top of Table Mountain, (the day was lovely and clear and the ocean was so calm), and going to Hermanus. What a lovely town and the drive there was spectacular… We had seafood and it was very, very good…. One thing I liked was that there was music everywhere with people singing or playing instruments in the street. It was very nice. I bought a couple of CDs of African music home with me. Anyway, thanks again for organising the tours for us. We loved our stay in your country.

 

GEORGE AND NADINE, USA

We are just about at the end of our marvelous trip to beautiful S. Africa. Nadine and I both want to thank you for all that you have done to make it an unforgettable, memorable experience…… Our goals were to understand a bit of history, culture, and to gain an appreciation of the scenery. Our goals were squarely met……. Our appreciation of the trip could not have been met without the dedication, knowledge, and care of our two guides Pieter and Francois…… Both are extremely well educated and informed on issues at all levels…. They are both excellent drivers as well which we greatly appreciated.

Thanks for calling us at the Glen home. We appreciated your follow-up. We are pleased with Signature Tours and will certainly recommend your services to our American friends who may wish to come to South Africa.

 

ALEX AND JOSE ANTONIO, PORTUGAL

I told everyone in the meeting and especially Nelda that you should be awarded the best touristic agent of 2008! I will definitely recommend you to any friends that are willing to visit South Africa.

I sincerely thank you for providing us with such a delightful trip! I will definitely contact you if I ever have the chance to visit South Africa again…. A warmful thanks!

 

ALEX AND JOSE ANTONIO, PORTUGAL

We have managed to visit all the places you suggested. In the winelands we went to Springfield and Bon Courage (where we had a delightful lunch), we have visited a small town called Montagu and stopped also in Boplaas although the place was closed and we did not have the chance to compare their port wine with the real one (from my own country!). Then we went to Outshoorn and the day after we visited the cangoo caves and an ostrish farm “the safari farm” were I actually had the chance to ride and ostrish! The trip to George was absolutely marvelous with a beatifull landscape. We stoped at a place called Wilderness for a drink and then went to Knysna. We briefly saw the views there and went to Plettenberg bay. Next day we visited the Nature’s valley, the Tsitsikama park, went to Storms river mouth and did the cannopy trip which was a lot of fun. Then we drove to Francis bay…. The game reserve was also fantastic. Our safari group was multi-cultural and a lot of fun so even there we were lucky! ….

 

ALEX AND JOSE ANTONIO, PORTUGAL

…feedback on my wonderful trip to South Africa! I had to let you know that never in my life did I have such a well organised trip. Your details were absolutely perfect, I didn’t even need the GPS as your info was so complete that you were actually better then the GPS itself! Therefore everything went so well that I do not think it could have been better. We found all places to stay with no problems, the places were absolutely marvellous and they were all expecting us upon arrival….

 

ALICE AND PAT WILKINSON

We have returned to the States from South Africa. I want to thank you so much for all your efforts in organizing our wonderful visit to Jo’burg and for matching us up with Johan. He was the best guide/driver/friend that we could have imagined. He was always on time, cheerful, full of interesting information and so nice about answering my many questions. He took terrific care of us “above and beyond” and for that we thank you! We will not hesitate to contact you when once again we come to South Africa and we will recommend both you and Johan to all.

 

TALMAGE, SALT LAKE CITY

The trip you arranged was really “over-the-top.” Everything went perfectly. We had a truly unforgettable experience.

Thank you so much. You were so patient with all of my questions and changes. I’ll be sending you some of my siblings who are keen to make a similar trip.

 

ALEX, UK

As you say, we are now safely back after a wonderful nearly 3 weeks in southern Africa. All your arrangements went perfectly. Avis had got us a Corolla (I had called in to check the booking/car type on our way through Jo’burg to Durban the previous week). Hippo Hollow Lodge was excellent, and again everything fell into place as planned. We did your Panoramic Route recommendation the first day Sunday, after a long Saturday flying and driving – then 2 early mornings in the park, and a more leisurely breakfast and return on Wednesday.

So everything was great, and we did appreciate all your trouble in making the arrangements for us. And we shall certainly be happy to recommend you to our friends with similar requirements in that area. I am sending Pierre a copy of this, with our thanks Pierre for passing us on to someone so helpful and efficient!

Many thanks.

 

SUSAN, MEXICO

My trip was wonderful, I especially appreciated the pacing of the tour you planned; you gave me plenty of time to rest so that I had all the energy I needed to do sightseeing. The hotels you planned were the best. I loved the service, attention to detail and beauty of the surroundings. The Royal Livingston was an amazing experience. Thank you for suggesting it! Andre van Niekerk was an amazing guide; I really enjoyed the time I spent with him, he was very knowledgeable about South Africa and I really appreciated his insights and the information he provided.

I loved everything about the tour and I really appreciate the personal attention you gave me. I will be sure to recommend you to those I know who are going to SA.

 

SUSAN, WALES.

I was going to email you anyway, to thank you for all your help and for booking such a wonderful trip for us. We were all really pleased with how it worked out. The travel went very smoothly and all 4 internal flights went well. Madikwe was wonderful and more than met our expectations! The ranger guide was highly informed and we saw more big animals that we had hoped for: each of us had named two that we REALLY wanted to see! All three of us had our wishes granted, including Niamh, who wanted to see 3 male cheetahs! We really enjoyed out trip. I have passed your details on to three other people already! All the best and [hopefully] until the next time.

TUMINAH, MALAYSIA

Thank you for organizing a wonderful tour for us and special thanks to Ince for being such a good guide. Hope to come to Cape again in future.

 

YVES, FRANCE

Let me congratulate you again for the excellent organisation and also for your personal flexibility … and sense of humour. We will certainly recommend “Signature” to anyone who would like to stay in South Africa. Marie-Hélène is joining me for congratulations.

 

KATE, UK

We cannot wait to come back to South Africa and have been spreading the word with our friends and contacts.

 

WILL & ROBIN, UK

Signature Tours – Lastly but not least, your input to our trip. Like so much of this trip the service & execution has just been first class. We have really appreciated all the advice, help & support you have provided since we first approached you with our requirements. This has been our third visit to SA & it just gets better every time.
Your advice to take the services of a guide in Springbok & use the Dyer Island Whale Cruise was typical of the thought & professionalism that went into planning our trip. It did not go unrecorded that Jannie had visited Naries Namakwa Retreat before our visit, ensuring that we got the best possible accommodation.
To Jannie & his team for all their efforts a big thank you.

 

LILLIS, FINLAND

On behalf of the whole group I’d like to thank you so much for all the arrangements made for us on our trip! We had an incredible experience and enjoyed the trip a great deal. Signature tours was an excellent choice as well; both our guide and the driver were superb. And the best thing of course, our customers enjoyed it a great deal as well. Best regards and once more, thank you

 

FIDELIA, SOUTH AFRICA

I would also personally like to thank you for all your efforts and for all the arrangements. General feedback was that the group had an amazing time in South Africa. Thank you once again.

 

ROBERT, CINCINNATI

Thank you for your prompt response and for the good news about a refund. Our visit to South Africa was truly the trip of a lifetime! We would love to return and when we do, we will depend again upon your agency for outstanding assistance.

 

MR YACINE, ALGERIA

It was a real pleasure to meet you in Cape Town.
I want to congratulate you for the post congress tour in Bayethe. Everything was delightful and people and lodge were excellent.
In addition of that you give me a refund! Thank you very much.

Best wishes

 

CLAUDIO, ITALY

Honestly the comment received by our customer is simply one: EXCELLENT. I can easily add also mine: PERFECT. The guy was really friendly and very available to satisfy all his questions and curiosities. Moreover please note that customer told me that if he should come again in SA he will contact for sure the guy to organize a trip. Of course the weather has helped us in the trip, we have visited Table Mountain, Cape Point, Cape Good Hope, penguins, monkeys, whales … Thanks for your patience and cooperation,

Best Regards

 

KIM, DENMARK

I tell everybody of your wonderful country – and I have already reserved flight for Sunneva and me to friends in Jo’burg next year!

 

JUDY, USA

One thing I noticed about all the folks we met in SA – all are extremely proud – at all levels! Very nice to see. I’m now one of your best advertisements for going there!
All the best to Signature Tours – and may we meet again.
