What Our Clients Say...

Glynis van Rooyen has managed several trips of mine throughout South Africa displaying uncommon knowledge of the wineries in the Western Cape, the city glories of Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg and the safari treks in both public and private game parks. My clients have ranged from family groups to Chief Executive Officers, from first-timers to seasoned travelers. Both young and old have benefited from her efficient planning and her affable in-person tour management.

I wanted to write you and thank you again for everything, I had such a wonderful time and I cannot say thank you enough for everything you did for us. I know I can speak for the whole group when I say that we had just a fantastic time and cannot wait to tell everyone we meet all about it! Thank you again and I hope we meet again very soon!!
— Jessica Powell, Bay/Tempo Travel (ASTA visitor. Group included four other ASTA tour operators)
From a purely professional, touring point of view Glynis’ most valuable asset is her ability to handle any travel contingency that may arise with positive results and a calm demeanor. Because Glynis went to school in the United States and has traveled in our country, she knows how to ease the American psyche into the sometimes mysterious African environment.
— Rozelle Vanda Putnam and Richard Lindwall, Georgia, USA
Thanks for a great couple of days. I so enjoyed my time with you, travelling around the area, seeing the sites, and learning so much about South Africans and their country. You made me feel special, and I really liked how you arranged for excursions and adventures that were just right for me. I loved the sights, the food, the conversation.., I loved it all!
— Peggy Sharp (retired professor at Portland State University), Portland, Oregon
