My husband and I had planned to take a cruise from Miami To Cape Town in January, 2015. We originally had also planned to take a large-group land tour once we arrived in Cape Town. In late November of 2014 the tour company called to say that they had to cancel our tour. At that point, with about 6 weeks to go before we sailed, I had to find a new land tour. I went online and did a lot of research and found that the tours that seemed to be both the most interesting and best value for the money were on the Zicasso website. After some further looking, I settled on this travel company to book our tour. The president of the travel company worked closely with me to find what I wanted, but even better than what we had first planned, she came up with a private tour for us for not that much more money than the large-group tour. The tour she planned for us had exactly what we wanted in the way of lodges, transportation, locations in South Africa, etc.. She also advised me on what to skip based on our timeframe and budget, which was extremely helpful. We were very excited about the trip. However, in early December, before I could finalize plans, confirm the booking and makeour deposit, we received a call from the travel agent for the ship that we were supposed to take to Cape Town saying that there had been a fire on the ship and that all of its cruises were cancelled till mid-March. March did not fit with our plans to be away for the winter, so we had to scrap our whole trip to Souh Africa. We were terribly disappointed. If we do decide to go to SA another time, I will definitely work with this agent again to plan the ideal trip.
We were not able to take to trip.
We would go.
