Excellent trip, driver was great. Views were spectacular, and we had flexibility on how long we stayed in the locations. Wonderful day.

Much more entertaining than a typical City Tour. We learned a lot about Apartitie - we had had a number of miconceptions. The markets we interesting. A visit to a crocodile reserve was interesting since in one area they had both crocs and dators and we could easily see the differences. The Zulu village and dance show was fantastic. But we felt sorry for the people. The three people in our party were the only ones there for their great performance. The stop at the Botanic Garden was also great. We recommend the optional "golf cart tour" for ZAR 100 pp. Amoung other plants we got to see the "World's Lonelyest Tree" (Only one male has ever been seen in the wild in 1895 and NO female has ever been found. We enjoyed this sight so much we went back the next day n our own.

Because of Tour Guides like Johnny Matthews, we will keep us using La Vacanza Travel as our go-to Tour Agency. Johnny was so friendly, informative, and accommodating for our small Group Tour. He knows the Durban history and it’s local peoples very well - and they know and respect him. He knows so many people on the Street, Vendors, Police, etc. that we suggested that he run for Mayor! Highlights were some behind-the-scene places that other Tours could not access. He provided pickup and transportation and even got two additional Security guys while walking the Sidewalks. Our Safety was his paramount concern, and we felt at ease throughout the day. Please extend our additional thanks to Johnny. We highly recommend this Tour.

Loved it!!! The Zulu dancing was fantastic, with 1000 hills in the background. I enjoyed the crocodile farm more than I thought I would. Our tour guide there was very informative and fun. I loved seeing Umhlanga rocks, such a nice area. And also the city halls… Beautiful architecture! And the botanical gardens was stunning. Definitely pay a little extra for the botanical gardens golf cart tour… Vishnu might be the most enthusiastic person I’ve ever met. The entire day was perfect. Thanks so much!!
