I cannot say more about the professionalism, the responsiveness, and the vacation planning abilities of Anya! Our family of 8 reached out to her to plan our trip to Cape Town and with VERY little direction from us beyond our desire to see as much as possible in 8 days, Anya anticipated our needs and executed a perfect itinerary that made everyone from the youngest (5) to the oldest (40 something!).
It was so easy and such a treat to just relax and enjoy vacation. The apartments were beautiful and well situated for city exploration (side note, we both had washer and dryers). Spier was a great way to end our trip, it was beautiful and the food was incredible.We cannot thank you enough for all you did to make this a fabulous, stress-free trip!
I would recommend Pembury to anyone looking for a full-service travel planning agency that provides for all the big (and little) things one may need on vacation. We literally worried about nothing and just enjoyed the ride!

Tour Consultant's Overview
I received Jamie's first email in April 2017, she was referred to me by close family friend who had worked with her in New York. They had discussed activities in Cape Town and where they should stay while in Cape Town. Jamie and her family had booked a few nights at Madikwe Safari Lodge directly and wanted to visit Cape Town after the safari in Madikwe but as it was their first time in Southern Africa, they had no idea what to do or where to stay. The family group included Jamie, her husband and their two sons as well as Jamie's sister in law, her husband and their two sons. In total a family of 8.
Jamie let me know they would prefer having the flexibility of a rental car in Cape Town and exploring the surrounding area on their own due to the ages of the children, they felt this would suit them better. With some additional information on the families’ interests and preferences, I put together a 8 Day itinerary for them which included a few nights stay at a self-catering apartment along the V&A Waterfront and two nights in the Cape Winelands at the Spier Hotel and Wine Farm. I suggested this itinerary as the self-catering apartment would give the family the space and "homely" feel while in Cape Town without comprising the location of the accommodation. The Waterfront Apartment is in the perfect location for exploring the V&A Waterfront, within walking distance from restaurants and a short drive from the major attractions in Cape Town.
After the stay in Cape Town, they took a slow drive through the Cape Winelands for the perfect way to end their tour in Southern Africa. Approximately an hour away from the city, the Cape Winelands would provide a relaxing and quite end to the holiday.
I chose Spier Hotel and Wine Farm as this hotel and wine farm not only caters for adults but for the kids as well. While the parents enjoyed wine tasting, the kids could join in on the fun with various grape juice tastings. After reviewing the proposed itinerary, Jamie and the rest of the family were very happy with the proposal and the tour was booked!
I provided the family with directions, extra information and a detailed itinerary (even for the kids) upon their arrival in Cape Town. The trip was a success and the family had a great time exploring the Mother City and the Cape Winelands.
