Rachael & David Long, California
We had an extraordinary trip to South Africa, thanks to the amazing organizational skills of Marion Ellis of Cape Insights.
The purpose of my visit was for both work and travel. I was in a quandary in the planning process; how was I going to make all my professional contacts and at the same time experience the South African culture?
A search on the internet brought me to Marion’s website and she’s been a remarkable contact; my husband and I feel so lucky to have worked with her!
She went above and beyond to organize the most incredible 2 week visit to South Africa that was both highly productive and interesting.
I gave her a list of work contacts, and she lined up all my meetings, enabling me to meet with people in the agricultural industry across South Africa. I could never have done this on my own from here in California and owe her a big debt of gratitude for her attention to detail.
She also organized our tour guides and drivers that made all the difference in the world for us; we felt safe and comfortable, which enabled us to experience the extraordinary South African culture from fantastic wine and food, to wildlife, rock art, and the origins of man.
Our tour guides were exceptional and we learned so much about the history, culture, natural history, and beauty of South Africa, including Cape Town.
Our hotels were above and beyond our expectations with beautiful rooms and fabulous food and wine.
Marion has a remarkable ability to network and plan any trip of one’s interests and dreams. She has a wealth of contacts and is so knowledge about South Africa! It was just so easy to work with her from setting up the trip (she called right away to find out more about what we were looking for), to payment (so easy and safe on line), to a post trip follow up to see how everything went.
We look forward to going back to Africa and will definitely work with Marion at Cape Insights. We had a fabulous trip!
