Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Exceeded expectations. Everything went v smoothy, was on time and all staff, drivers, guides we encountered were v friendly, helpful."

Trevoyan Guest House
Manager v helpful in giving local advice and organising extras. Had great colonial style. A long walk into town, across busy interchanges; we took taxis back in the evening from waterfront
