Bait and switch

We are 3 weeks into a trip with Wayfairer. So far they have greatly disappointed us. We requested, had confirmed and paid for 5 star lodgings. The average price we paid is $3,500 per day. They have put us in primarily $200-300 a night hotels.

We have multiple times asked them to correct hotels. They have corrected 2 hotels after we pointed out the big discrepancy. They have done nothing proactively.

Today we are checking into a $200 a night hotel by the airport. We are staying over night in Johannesburg for no reason. Their lack of planning has us here needlessly. We are taking a shuttle to a distant hotel when there is a hotel at the airport.

I am with my pregnant wife and our two children. I could not even have imagined such a bad experience for our family.

We feel ripped off. They claim to be a luxury travel company and they demand full payment up front. Then they book you in cheap hotels.

We believe that we have been scammed. Be warned.

Very helpful before, during and after our tour. Excellent choices of where to go and the lodges.

The people with the agency were all helpful and kept us informed and were able to answer any and all questions. I feel it was a good value for the money. We saw so many different animals we got to see all of the big five except for rhinoceros because due to poaching there isn’t any except for a few that are being protected. There’s also many beautiful birds to be seen. I especially enjoyed the baby elephants, we saw one that our guide said probably wasn’t more than a week old. The whole experience was wonderful.

South Africa Garden Route Trip with a toddler!

Absolutely amazing trip, the level of planning, attention to details and taking care of us from Wayfairer was absolutely AMAZING! Veron - THANK YOU - did amazing job customizing our trip to our needs, making sure it all fits our needs especially that we were travelling with a toddler (<2 years old), but all plan, stops, recommendations were truely thought through and made us all very happy. We were checked upon during the trip, if all was good and even chased the moment we dfid not arrive on time to one of the destinations (because we had to make some more stops with a baby) which just shows the care of the team. Online information provided, constant updates, what else you can ask for. All accomodation, food, car rental was perfectly fine.

Thank you again for organizing for us outstanding time and we will definitely come back to SA and use your services!

Pretty flawless organisation of our trip. Fantastic knowledge and learning experience of wildlife

Wayfairer did a thorough job in meeting our objectives for the trip. Good planning and comms throughout with knowledgeable team members. No hiccups in the execution with all the transfers lined up properly. They use a good operator on the ground in Botswana. One improvement would be a strong recommendation to guests to bring enough cash for tips for the game lodge staff which is expected. This may have been embedded somewhere but it was not obvious enough.

The team organised a memorable experience for us and supported us with every step of the process.

The team has been fabulous at suggesting a great itinerary for our family, booking exceptional accomodation solutions and friendly and efficient internal transport. They were also very responsive when we experienced visa issues and offered solutions and support. The trip was an amazing experience!
