Julie came highly recommended, so when we decided to head to Cape Town she was our first call. She took care of getting us picked up at the airport and even booked our hotel.

Her ideas for us were perfect.

Our tour size ranged from 6 people to 18 people, and she managed to arrange INCREDIBLE tours and meet the transportation needs of our group daily.
