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.

Punta Cana was beautiful but we did encounter a few set backs. First our hotel was not as clean as we expected, we actually had to have them remove the mattresses because there was bed bugs. The food was also extremely disappointing. Overall our experience wasn’t ideal but we made the best of it.

I booked my trip with a Great Value vacations agent because of some changes that I needed. He was very helpful, patient, and fun. I have traveled with GVV a few times and every time I receive what I was promised. Very satisfied!

My Great Value vacation to Paris France was great, meaning the classy hotel, hotel location, hotel staff, excellent breakfast foods & choices! The hotel rooms were small yet, comfortable. It has a beautiful restaurant terrace lined with foliage plants & flowers coupled off with a giant chess board on deck!
The hotel is located directly across the street from a busy public park close to clothing shops, restaurants, bakery and even the post office!
I really enjoyed the 2 day passes and used them wisely to the guided Eiffel Tower, Hop-on-Hop off Bus and Sein night Cruise. (I did the Louve on my own). The passes were a very useful addition to our trip.
Taxis were quick when called to hotel. Fares can vary depending either on distance and or driver's attitude at the time. Ubers are cheaper.
FYI: Download the Google Translator and a currency exchange app!
BTW, this is my fourth (4th) trip with GVV!

Experiencing all those fabulous places in one vacation! Great Value put together historical, beautiful locations to explore both on your own and with tour guides. Since this was my first time using Great Value, I wasn't aware that a separate tour company would be used so maybe providing more information about that before a week or two before travel would be nice.
