We deal with a broad spectrum of clients, from business leaders and top executives at companies like Microsoft and Price Waterhouse, to families travelling with children, to retirees with the luxury of time to spend exploring the far reaches of the globe. And while most of our clients live in North America, we also take pleasure in providing tailor-made tours for clients from more than a dozen other countries from all corners of the world.
Almost all of the trips we organize are for our repeat clients and the friends that they have referred to us, or those who have heard about us by word-of-mouth. Take a moment and see what they have had to say…
"The itinerary that you put together suited our objectives perfectly. It was organized with such thoroughness that we're hard pressed to think of a single detail that was not attended to. Moreover, the personal care, attentiveness, and generosity that we received from you and from all of the agents, guides, drivers, and hotel staff was simply extraordinary."

"Tov, please think on it, and work on it! I know it is something of a fanciful flight of ideas, but that is how our trip to India also began. Indeed, even finding you way back when was, if you will, a kind of fanciful idea come true. So, let me tell you how much I believe in you, trust your judgement and in my heart know you will try your best to have these dreams in some way work true!!!!"

Hi Footprints! We're back home now and doing great. The trip was an absolute dream. Can't wait to tell you all about it. Thank you again for everything. We were thrilled.

What a great trip - it's impossible to say what I liked best! All the staff were so friendly, considerate and helpful. The organization was flawless, the food was superb and beautifully presented."
TM – Vietnam
My tear ducts should be renamed 'joy ducts' and rarely a day passed that they didn't activate. This trip was such a special experience, and as my last journal entry says, 'The journey will never end.'
GB - Nepal & Tibet
Just got back from India, and I wanted to make sure to thank you for an extraordinary trip. I know it was not easy putting it together at the last minute, but it was truly wonderful. Everyone along the way were lovely and extremely helpful. So thank you very, very much. I really appreciate your taking on this rushed trip and making it incredibly special (and relaxed!) It will give me great pleasure to give you the highest recommendation to whomever asks.

TP – Java & Bali
"I'm writing while the memories of my experience in Turkey are fresh and alive – the entire trip was unique with thousands of moments forever impressed in my mind. Our guide's unique blend of humor and knowledge of history and myths were priceless – I loved it."
EW - Turkey
"The trip was great and I loved our guide. She went out of her way to make us feel like we were getting the trip we dreamed of. Thanks to her wonderful sense of humor, her facility with the English language, her infectious love for her country and her enthusiasm for teaching us about the Thai/Lao culture and food, we experienced a trip that exceeded the written itinerary we signed up for and we gained a life-long friend in Bua."
ST - Thailand & Laos
ALMOST over the jet lag, but the trip was amazing and we knew we were in good hands throughout. Borneo is a special place - beautiful country and great wildlife - lots of birds (over 70 new species), monkeys and orang-utans. The food was great, the people were nice – a really great experience and I'd love to go back. Thanks, Tov. You out did yourself again.

Here's our take... first and foremost, Rhys was a fabulous guide. He was informative, not only about the planned trips, but about all things South African. He was tireless, never looking at his watch(literally or figuratively) to say we're running out of time. Most planned ½ day trips lasted much longer to assure that we were not rushed and that we saw everything possible. The hotels exceeded expectations from the Cape Grace all the way through the rest of the trip… La Residence is almost indescribable. One can only say that it is an experience never forgotten. The Plettenberg cannot be topped in the Garden Route. Everything was tops-the room, its view, the breakfast, the dinner, the service.
Staying 2 nights in the wine country as opposed to a day trip from Cape Town was a good decision. We were not rushed and best of all, we got to stay at La Residence. Rattrays was everything we expected. We don't know how any reserve could be better. Rattrays has the largest acreage(hectares) and thus the most sighting opportunities. I just don't see how any game reserve in the area could be better.
Tswalu is a once in a lifetime experience. Expensive, but well worth the cost. Having been there, I must say that seeing South Africa, without going to Tswalu, would have been a mistake. The drivers are unlike any game reserve drivers we've experienced…Christo was truly a naturalist, with a detailed explanation for every sight and every animal. He was a true tracker as well, carefully reading paw prints as we tracked (not looked for) animals.
One last comment. The people who picked us up from and delivered us to our flights were first rate. I can only close by thanking you and Tov abundantly for planning and more importantly executing a most marvelous trip.
