What our guests say about this trip
Our trip to South Africa with Enchanting Travels was absolutely wonderful! The itinerary that our planner set up for us was perfect; we traveled to three different cities on 3 cross country flights during our stay, and she was able to coordinate all of that seamlessly. From a transfer meeting us at each airport to drive us to the hotel, to an all-day private guide, all details were taken care of by Enchanting Travels, making the trip a breeze to plan, and completely wonderful to experience. It was our honeymoon, and Enchanting Travels had even set up little gifts – champagne and chocolates – at each hotel for our enjoyment. We felt truly special, and I cannot wait to plan my next trip with Enchanting Travels soon!
