We were very happy with the trip that you organized for us to South Africa. You went beyond your services to accommodate us even when our flights were delayed for a day and that threw our itinerary completely out of whack. You meticulously arranged everything so that we did not have any hiccups. We had a wonderful time in South Africa and the whole family often talks about how enjoyable and well planned the entire trip was. You were always there for us and we thank you for your service. Five out of five stars!!!

We found Samantha West to be an incredible travel agent; she suggested interesting places to visit on our trip to several countries in southern Africa and then followed up with detailed planning regarding connections, stays and excursions. Unbeknownst to us at the time, she was in contact with local agents who provided services while we were visiting, and made sure things went smoothly (they did). She arranged an evaluation after we returned home, to make sure everything went o safely as planned. We were extremely pleased with Ms. West’s services, and would highly recommend her. She knows the area and plans a wonderful, memorable trip.

My experience with South Africa Travel & Tours has been extremely satisfying. Samantha’s acute knowledge of South Africa and its many resources it offers a tourist is beyond reproach. The quality of service is impeccable and it made our trip to SA a very memorable one.

I would highly recommend Samantha West for your travel arrangements in South Africa. My husband and I had a fabulous experience when we visited Capetown, Kruger and Victoria Falls last summer. Samantha paid attention to every detail- she arranged all of our transportation- air and land and put us in lovely hotels. The trip was amazing and I would not hesitate to use Samantha again for any future trips to Africa.

On my most recent trip to South Africa, I had the fortune of working with Samantha West and South Africa Travel & Tours. Ms. West was a pleasure to work with. I say this not only for her competence in arranging my tour but also for her patience in working with me. My trip had various problems pre-departure and she worked with me continuously. She offered competent guidance and thoughtful insight while I was in the planning stages of my trip to her wonderful country.

Our two-week vacation in South Africa was absolutely memorable for the entire family and we were extremely happy with the service that received from Samantha and her company.
