Just returned - fantastic holiday that went like clockwork. The Views was a great choice and they did include one spa treatment everyday as part of their opening offer.. Drove on first day to Knysa and Plett but much preferred Wilderness to stay in.
Good directions to Franshoek and Klein Genot Hotel and restaurant lived up to our friends recommendation.
V+A Hotel a good choice in the heart of things and we used their sister Dock House pool on the last day - much better than location of the Vineyard where friends were staying as nice as it is. Drove right round peninsula and sunset ride up Table Mountain in perfect weather.
Security certainly not an issue, driving or walking round The Waterfront - we didn't need to go into town in the evening. Felt safer than in London! Found all the South Africans the most friendly we've met anywhere.
Thank you and Erika for all your help and advice etc. including our last minute changes. We would definitely use you again to visit other areas and recommend Cape Tours to our friends. Please feel free to use us as a reference.
