      Very full itinerary but saw so much. Starting in Johannesburg with Soweto, Nelson Mandela house and Apartheid museum, moving on to Kruger where wildlife was amazing. Garden route, Stellenbosch, Cape Town..... this really was Spectacular South Africa. Optional add-on trip to Victoria Falls well worth it.

      Better pre-trip communication, final documents not sent until last minutes.

      The trip was incredible but I feel there are a few areas that could benefit from changes: 1. Our tour manager for the South Africa portion needs to work on his communication style. There was lots of confusion on times to be places, causing us to be late and rushed sometimes. 2. We spent too much time on the bus that probably could have been avoided. For example, the driving component of the tour of Soweto could have been significantly reduced. Felt like we were driving in circles just to kill time. While I imagine it would have increased our cost, instead of driving from Kruger to Johannesburg to catch flight to Cape Town, we should have flown from Kruger area airport. Not sure why we stayed in Knysna, it's a pretty town, but if we had stayed in George instead, we could have done a day trip to Knysna and then not have had as much driving on other days. 3. Lunches on the road were an issue - on long bus days, lunch was at rest stops, where real food was not usually available, only junk food was. This needs improvement. 4. Hotel in Kynsna needs to be changed to something nicer. Highlights of the trip - there are so many but my favorites were the penguins on the Cape of Good Hope, Stellenbosch, and safari at Kruger

      I would have rated higher except for the location and quality of the accommodations at the Winkler Inn. Definitely lower standard of room and an hour away from Kruger. An hour after a long drive to get there, an hour to and from the park, and an hour added to the day of departure. At Speir Hotel, brochure advised we would get a wine pairing with dinner. We got one glass of wine. The wine tasting was supposed to include savories. Nothing was provided, in spite of Ian Pletzner's attempts. Ian's role on the whole trip kept the rating at 4 stars.

      The itinerary was comprehensive and included outstanding locations in South Africa. Cape Town was spectacular, including the Cape of Good Hope and Table Mountain. Tour Director was excellent with commentary and local knowledge. Was able to manage the group and weather very efficiently.
