Luckily, I was welcomed by Mrs. Fanny Led Kay, who, besides being an exceptional guide, was a great traveling companion. She was accurate in the comments and helped me make the most of my time. I surely recommend her and I&F... More

LOVED our private Cape tour with Fanny. She is an incredibly warm and knowledgeable lady who offered genuine insight and information round every new corner. The tour involved encountering penguins at Boulders Beach, journeying to the edge of the continent at the Cape of Good Hope and seal-watching at Hout Bay. Lunch was enjoyed at Black Marlin restaurant, and was... More

We had a superb day trip while on our honeymoon touring the winelands with Elegant Country tours. Our guide, Fanny, was superb- we were blown away by her warmth, knowledge, and kindness, and she spent the day driving us to some absolutely gorgeous vineyards. A beautiful day with excellent company and wine- what more could you ask for?!
