Short Description

South Africa is filled with one breathtaking sight after another. Get to see some of the prettiest landscapes, cities, and wildlife on this 9-night vacation with guided tours. You will begin in vibrant Cape Town, journey to the famous Kruger National Park then end in Johannesburg's urban jungle. Enjoy delicious food and wine as you discover what makes this country so special.

Land in Cape Town and kickstart your South African journey. Enjoy three guided tours in the city, known for its melting pot of culture and scenery. Drive along the peninsula, sip a glass of red in the Winelands, and climb to the top of Table Mountain. See why Cape Town is beloved by both tourists and locals. 

Then make your way to South Africa's can't-miss Kruger National Park. Enjoy a stay at an authentic lodge while you embark on twice-daily safari drives on one of Africa's largest game reserves! Get up close with lions lounging in the sun, watch an elephant bathe in the water, and maybe even catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard if you're lucky! 

End your trip in Johannesburg, or "Joburg", as it's commonly known. In South Africa's economic capital, get a deeper understanding of the country's intricate and complicated past on a full-day tour. Visit the Apartheid Museum and much more as you gain a greater appreciation of South Africa.

Car & hotels were not booked until I called one week before The trip & I already was planning restaurant near the hotel posted on the website. All three hotels were different then listed in the description. First hotel was not good. (Definitely not the Benson) in Portland. Very small & had to put our suitcase on the bedside table. Very limited outlets for electronic devices. Also Portland is no longer a gem. Crazy amount of homeless with tents, garbage, feces & drug use in the sidewalk. Downtown business boarded up. Did not feel safe walking to & from the hotels!!!

Disappointed with GVV's trip planning. GVV cancelled our trip several times due to COVID, then increased our costs and fees with each rebooking despite the cancellation being due to a world wide pandamic and despite purchasing travel insurance. We chose their package Irish Castles and Countryside. Two stays were hotels, not castles. Hotel Woodstock was disgusting and full of children running up and down the halls well past midnight. At Lough Rynn Castle, our room was in an out building, not in the castle. The service however was impeccable. I could have planned this trip better myself.

The trip was as advertised. The Check My Trip worked well for storing and receiving information. The Hotel was as advertised except we reserved double beds and received a family room with three beds. We did receive a partial ocean view room and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend the Cartagena Plaza Hotel as the hotel is in a great location and the beach is just across the street. I did rent a car and traveled across Cartagena. I had a great time and would recommend your company. Keep up the good work.
