- It was a great tour made excellent by the brilliant tour leader (Thanks Andre!). Quite a few things in the itinerary were not as listed and indeed different families on the tour had different itineraries. For example, the water park wasn't open and the hot springs weren't available. However, through massive amounts of hard work by the leader, better alternatives were provided - the Puzzle Park (should be added to itinerary in our opinion) was great for all of the group, for example.
Some of the hotel arrangements weren't perfect for some of the group, with a lack of accurate room allocations to ensure that groups were accommodated appropriately (occasions where parent and child were in double bed, or family of 5 had three rooms).
I agree with the previous reviewer about Featherbed - it wasn't worth it - local guide was really poor. The caves were good and the whale watching was great (we were unlucky at Hermanus, but lucky on the optional trip). The climb and descent of Table Mountain (due to planned cable car maintenance) was awesome, but challenging, although every member of our superb group made it. The safari too exceeded our expectations.
There were so many highlights to the trip that I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a family adventure.
