Having travelled with us twice before, Julia and Christian returned to Equatours for their honeymoon in Australia, and we were delighted to assist with a tailor-made tour.
They wanted to see as much as they could during their stay but, they didn’t want to spend their entire trip in transit. With this in mind, we coordinated a bespoke tour that included a stopover in Singapore, a trip to the vibrant hub of Sydney, a self-drive adventure from Melbourne to Apollo Bay along the Great Ocean Road, a lazy weekend in Perth in Western Australia, and a three-night stay at the magical Ningaloo Reef where they had the unique opportunity to swim with spotted whale sharks.
As a keen cyclist, I’d had the Cape Town Cycle Tour on my “to do list” for some years. Added to this, going to South Africa was a bucket list item for me, so I decided to research possibilities for myself and my eldest daughter Beth to accompany me. Google was my companion for a few weeks as I went down a few dead ends, trying to decide whether to do all the bookings/arrangements myself or to book via a tour operator. My biggest challenge was combining the cycle tour with seeing some of South Africa (what parts, where is it safe to go, etc.). Eventually, I found Equators, and started email dialogue with Wendy. My googling had ended!
"The stay in Livingstone was amazing. The falls certainly had enough water to be really impressive and the helicopter flight was a true highlight – absolutely stunning views, as the weather was perfect. The evening cruise was fantastic, too. The hotel grounds were amazing in themselves – we hadn’t expected all the close encounters with giraffe, zebra, baboon, monkeys, etc. Fantastic"
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing a truly fantastic and memorable holiday in South Africa. The sights and experiences will never be forgotten, all organised with perfect (almost military precision)"
"We had a wonderful holiday in Cape Town and would like to say thank you for your great support.
During our vacation planning with friends, we came across the destination Cape Town. We also received the recommendation to be supported by you"
"We can only repeat what we said to you during our last dinner together in Uyuni. Our trip was perfectly organised, extremely interesting, and very well-chosen"
"After Australia, Tanzania & Zanzibar, this tour was our third journey with Equatours. As usual, Wendy and Ingo organised a fantastic trip"
"Brimming with warmth and enthusiasm, they are brilliantly organised and wonderfully generous. I would not want to join any other group! Thank you both so very much"
"Hi Wendy, I’d just like to let you know, we all had an amazing time on the mountain with the team. We were very well looked after, plus they were great fun to hike with"
"We would like to thank you for the great trip and it was certainly not the last “Equatours booking”. The trip was tip-top organized, there were no complaints and your efforts before traveling and also on site were tremendous"
"Thank you for sorting out this wonderful holiday for us Wendy it was an absolute fantastic experience and we both loved every minute of it"
"From the initial preparations until the end of the trip, everything went smoothly. It was so perfectly organized! For this reason, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks = Asante Sana to Ingo and Wendy"
Especially a big THANK YOU for the top travel organization and for the contact with Bernard! We had very nice bike rides, Bernard takes great care and is beyond all measures recommended bike tour guide!
We will warmly recommend him and you to others, and are sad that the 3 days are already over"
"Hello Ingo, Hello Wendy!
We had a super great holiday in Namibia. We took a lot of great memories home with us. I still have to sort mountains of pictures, but I need a little time for that"
Thank you for organising our wonderful holiday for us. Everything was so well organised, and it all ran smoothly.
The Kilimanjaro trek was without doubt the hardest thing I have ever done! Unfortunately, a stomach bug from day 3 made it so much harder, but with a fantastic team around us we made it to the top"
"We thank you very much for your organization and help. Very good were the hotels, the car, the itinerary and destinations. The airline was also very good, including the lounge you booked in Singapore.
So, our conclusion: as my wife said, first class! We will come back to you for our next “big” trip"
"We had an incredible time in South Africa! In the run-up you have some ideas, think what to expect, etc. … you did not promise us too much … it was just awesome!
We can recommend the entire journey to everyone! The Spier and the Kuzuku Lodge were pure relaxation and relaxation for us! Great food, lovely people, nice rooms, just awesome! Overall, there is only one thing to say: THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING"
"Thanks again for everything! Very likely that we will be back next year – but then with better preparation, better wheels and above all, more ambition. But for our first time the “gentle tour” was really great. And even without victory, the victory celebration arranged by you was really great"
