Very Good

Review by Sandra Walker (Hamilton New Zealand)

General Review

The lodges recommended to us by Sheilagh were all excellent choices for our group of 4 adults.

She booked all of our internal African flights and various road transfers between places, and a day trip out of Jo'burg, along with those accommodations.
We did have some issues during the planning stages, but we managed to iron those out, and our African holiday went very well. All 4 of us enjoyed it immensely.

The payment process (international bank transfer) was excellent and we received very prompt receipts for those payments.

Sheilaghs' input and assistance ensured we had a fantastic holiday in Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Namakwa Flower Tour Aug-Sept only

I can full-heartedly recommmend Sheilagh! She was always quick with her answers, sorted out any queries I might have had and organised everything to my satisfaction! The whole tour - from transport from the airport until back to my hotel after the trip was flawless! Sheilagh would be my first address for a repeat visit!

Tailor Made Tour

Sheilagh - you are such an amazingly resourceful and easy to deal with person! I am still surprised with the way you had handled hundreds of my queries/suggestions/wishes pre tour and as well as during the time when we were in your rainbow country.
I am so glad that I had picked you as my SA travel advisor - everything was planned perfecetly and exceuted even better, completly flawless.
Thanks Sheilagh for making our family holiday to SA a truly memorable one. I will be delighted to provide further information/details to any of your prospective clients. They just can't get wrong with you.

I just wanted to thank you for how well this trip worked. Everything was arranged just as you had arranged. I would be honored if you used me as a reference.

Review by Geoff & Janet Plant (Canada)

Tailor Made Tour

Thanks for all the great work you did to help organize all of these adventures. Even the unexpected challenges - like the failure of a major airline the day before we left home - were resolved by you effectively and efficiently.

You were constantly helpful, and informed. We started out with a few uncertainties: like, what will it mean to travel to a completely different continent, and will things really happen as planned. You built confidence for us from far away, and of course, as things did really happen as planned (airline failure aside!), we were able to relax into the adventure.

Review by Jim Le Fevre & Family (Florida USA)

Tailor Made Tour

Both of our trips were planned and executed through Sheilagh and we have been pleased with the services she provides. I must say that we built our trip cooperatively, with suggestions from my research and suggestions on her part. She did not disappoint

Review by Carol Corvette (South Africa)

Namaqualand Flower Tour

Just a quick note to thank you ever so much for organising this tour for my parents. They got back a week ago and had such a fantastic time they cannot stop talking about it. Their guide (Gerald) seems to have made the trip really special for them.

Thanks again for all your help in organising this.

Review by Carolyn And Marie-Claude Erian (Canada)

Tailor Made Tour

You did a superb job in arranging our holiday itinerary! Trips like this are certainly influenced by the weather, the kinds of people you meet and just general good fortune but it was very evident to us that you put together a plan that was outstanding.

We quickly recognized that you had put a lot of thought into creating a very memorable experience for us.Just in terms of feedback on the itinerary, as I said, it was fantastic
