Kathi Simon

After leaving school in Pretoria, she moved to Cape Town and spent some time in the hotel industry. She then joined a Life Insurance company selling life cover for the Group Schemes division. She was a most competent salesperson and qualified for (with other performing colleagues) an all expenses paid trip to Thailand.

She then met her husband to be at a Tourism evening at the Aquarium in Cape Town and joined forces with his newly launched Tourism business This lovely lady has the knack of listening carefully and then putting together trips that suit each client exactly.

You are in very good hands here and many friendships and repeat clients have come about through her work. Meticulous attention to detail and very efficient admin are great formulas she applies.

All done with vigour and enthusiasm!

Alex Simon

Alex was born in Cape Town although his parents had spent many years in the Belgian Congo. They then moved to South Africa. After finishing school in Cape Town, Alex studied for a Diploma in Sales and Marketing. He then took a gap year and travelled overseas.

On returning, Alex decided to put his French to use and qualified as a Driver - Guide for Luxury coaches. Alex then escorted Tour Groups throughout South Africa. After Ten years of Touring, and meeting many wonderful people, he started his own business in the then still fragile South African Tourism industry. Alex says his years on the road was lots of fun and always applied his sense of humour.

He enjoyed the studying of South African History and current affairs and being able to deliver entertaining and interesting commentaries to his passengers.

Today Alex has two lovely daughters and continues to apply his mind to creating and offering first class travel arrangements.
