Very knowledge and helpful
This was the most phenomenal trip I have ever taken I was given all options of different safaris, prices and all the information on all of them I was very happy with the help I was given in choosing my trip. I felt the price was great considering the trip and all that was included. The accommodations were great, the food was great and the game drives were out of this world. I would recommend go travel and this trip to everyone and I would go again in a heartbeat!

The Go Touch Down team certainly know how to showcase South Africa.
The whole Touch Down team made our recent trip to South Africa so perfect.
Everything ran like clockwork, there were no hidden costs and the signature safari package proved to be great value for money.
When we booked the holiday at the Travel Show in London, the team assured us it would be the holiday of a lifetime and it certainly did not disappoint. We enjoyed every minute.

My husband and I took the 10 Day Signature Adventure Tour. We were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary. The Go Touch Down team acknowledge our special day at every accommodation. This company was so organized, I was really impressed with the level of detail and access to our trip itinerary. Everything went as planned and adjustments were communicated. Very reliable. The accommodations were great, and all of the activities planned maximized your visit.
The guides, drivers and other staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The food was also very good! The value for the money matched the tour expectations. I would highly recommend this tour and Go Touch Down.

Great to work with, I appreciate all she did.
We had a wonderful time. James was a great tour guide. Tyler made our Safari experiences really enjoyable. Chris was a wonderful guide in Cape Town. Rachel at Stillwater was such a joy. The meals were excellent. Our tour group was small but we were treated royally. I really enjoyed this trip.

Very knowledgeable, courtesy, personable and always on time following up on all activities.
Our tour to South Africa (10 day signature tour) was nothing but awesome. The accommodations for our safari at the private game lodge, Tshukudu were beautiful. The game drives were surreal and our game driver was so amazingly knowledgeable about the animals and their habitat. We were truly blown away and astonished. The food and service was great and the lodge personnel were so very polite and attentive.
The optional excursions were well worth the time and money. We especially enjoyed Robben Island and the Bo-Kaap Museum. I can't say
enough about how enjoyable this trip was. All of our tour guides ( Cape Town, Johannesburg and Victoria Falls) went out of their way to make our tour so meaningful and fun! Also providing us with an app to view our daily itinerary was a God-send. This is by far the best tour we've ever taken. It will be a cherished memory forever. I highly reccommend Go Touch Down.
Thank you "GO TOUCH DOWN.""

Thoughtful, well organized and very thorough.
Hi, Karen and I left for a Touch Down tour of South Africa on September 29 and arrived back in the USA on October 17th. We contracted with Touch Down to save us the time and effort to organize a trip. We have been to 35 other countries and usually arranged our own tours. This time I decided to spend some money and save the effort. It was money worth every penny spent. Touch Down was thoughtful and well organized and every part of our trip went off like clockwork. Guides arrived when they were scheduled. Accommodations were beyond our expectations. Food was great. The best part was the wonderful service that everyone gave us on all parts of the trip. We could not have received better service nor been better treated. I highly recommend the staff and services of Touch Down for any trip that you want take. My wife described it as our "Trip of a Lifetime." John

Outstanding service and personal warmth
This trip was one of high expectations as a once in a lifetime trip for myself and two lifetime friends. The trip was postponed from 2019 due to Covid and Go Touch Down was extremely accommodating and understanding of the need to make these changes. We were not disappointed!!
My interaction with Angie and Yolanda were very easy and consistently responsive to my questions and plans as I was the coordinator for my friends. Upon arrival in Johannesburg, and after a pleasant stay at the City Lodge Hotel,, we were met with the most engaging gentleman, James, our escort during the Safari part of this trip. James was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area giving us an air of confidence and comfort as we began this adventure.
Once at the Tshukudu
Bush Camp we enjoyed wonderful meals, including their catering to my special vegetarian request. Not only was the presentation lovely and food delicious, the service staff were just a delight.
As we ventured out on safari Tyler, our Safari guide at the camp, and at the Kruger National Park was incredibly knowledgeable, and clearly loved his work as he expressed enthusiasm for the conservation efforts, and the mission of the preservation and health of these majestic animals. We were able to see all of the big five animals as well as a wide variety of other wildlife.
As we traveled to Cape Town we met a new escort, Chris, In the same spirit as we had been enjoying, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He provided a wonderful escort throughout the city of Cape Town, and into the breathtaking wine country and coastal areas. Our stay at the Stillness Manor reminded me a little bit of the lushness of the beautiful stay we initially encountered at the equestrian center. The Manor is stately as it sits on a hill overlooking Cape Town, which was absolutely beautiful in the evenings with the moon shining over it.
Not to be disappointed, we found the food, exceptional and the service equivalent to any fine restaurant. The chef was very kind in greeting us and asking if he could make any special provisions and once again, my vegetarian request were wonderfully fulfilled.
The service staff were so very pleasant and attentive. We grew quite fond of them all, especially Rachel. As our time drew to a close, we all felt a little sad as we headed to the airport, but thrilled to have experienced the magic of this enchanting country with hopes that perhaps some day, once again, we may travel this path.

This trip has been my dream all my life. Everyone from Go Touch Down were outstanding. From start to finish the trip was so much more than we expected. From the beautiful accommodations, so much excellent food, very friendly staff thank you Backkies, Zandile, Johnson and Chris to mention just a few. Also a huge thank you to Shelley and Inge for organising our trip of a lifetime. Both of you always available for my many questions. This trip was so well organised that we didn’t have to think of anything. We will definitely be going back to South Africa and we highly recommend Go Touch Down Travels and Tours.

A very well run operation.
We would like to say how this trip exceeded all our expectations and more, from the communication lines always being open, receiving replies before we left, to the staff and tour operators once we arrived.
Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable and punctual.
The accommodation, food and transport were all excellent.
The amazing thing was seeing all the African wildlife, fauna and scenery, I don't think there was too much we missed.

Amazing South African Tour for my Daughter and I!
We booked our South African tour through Go Touch Down Travel at a travel convention my daughter and I attended about a year before we took the trip. We did the 10-day Signature Safari tour, and eventually added the 3-day additional for Victoria Falls. We worked with Lucia for all the planning, and she always made herself available when I called for questions. One of the things I liked about their tours is there is no more than 6 people on the tours and Safari's. On the Signature Tour, my understanding is they own the lodges which my daughter and I found quite charming and quiet. The food at these lodges was mostly included and was very good. The staff was always friendly and accommodating. The daily Tours, and Safaris were well planned out and all of our guides were amazing! They were very knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure our experiences were memorable (Thank-you to Thabo for tours in Mpumalanga and Hoedspruit, Tyler for Safari's in Tshukudu and Kruger, Johnathan for Western Cape, and Mthulisi at Victoria Falls!)
If you have never been to South Africa before, this is a very good trip to get an excellent overall experience of this beautiful country. We experienced the beautiful landscapes and geography in Mpumalunga and Hoedspruit, amazing Safaris in Tshukudu, Kruger and Chobe (Boswana), The seaside, Table Mountain and Gold's African performance in Cape Town and Victoria falls in Zimbabwe.
