Thank you so much for all your efforts putting together a great trip to South Africa for us. We were all struck by the natural beauty, cleanliness and great amenities throughout the regions we visited. As well, the people of South Africa were warm, hospitable and proudly showed off their country whenever the opportunity arose. The students had a fantastic trip, filled with powerful positive memories that will last a life time.
(etr tour leader) Craig proved to be an exceptional tour guide; he is an articulate communicator, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. Craig had a great sense of timing, creating a full itinerary each day that flowed from one event to another, while leaving the students and teachers excited and exhausted at the close of each day. Craig developed positive relationships with the students; he could have a career in teaching.
The itinerary was ideal for our group; it was just the right mix of walking, swimming, boating (more than once), hiking, safari, museums, caving and bussing. Our students enjoyed each site and eagerly anticipated each new engagement. The bus drivers Harold and Simon were personable and professional.
We would consider doing this excursion again in a couple of years. If we do, we would increase the trip by one day to have a down day to watch the Cape Town bike race.
On behalf of our students, I would like to thank you once again for a great trip!
D.H. and his students travelled with etr to South Africa in March, 2012
