“A big thank you for a most wonderful holiday in South Africa. Clare said for her it was the holiday of a lifetime. The itinerary you put together suited the hedonistic amongst us perfectly and met our aspirations to the letter ... the guest houses we stayed at, the scenery, the wine estates and above all the excellent food and wine will linger fondly in our memories for ever. We wont hesitate in recommending you to make a dream come true. Again, thank you so very much. With best wishes from a very satisfied and happy couple.”
Ian & Clare Munro (travelled South Africa, 2016)

“Thank you for the amazing trip which you organized for us. Everything went so perfectly. Our every need was catered for. We felt almost like two celebrities! We were always amazed by the beauty of the architecture, all our guides were good company and well-informed, and we would like to give a special thanks to our driver who was always on time, always smiling and a very good and patient driver. We really loved India and would like to go again in the future and will definitely ask your company to assist us with another tour. Thank you again. We had a magical time!
Trish and Philippe Tellier (travelled India, 2016)

“You arranged a simply fabulous itinerary for our short week’s stay and I feel that I have had such a great flavour of South Africa now. All of your choices surpassed our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend your services. Keith and I had a great time discovering some of the fabulous places and restaurants that your itinerary sent us to. Our wine tour was really worthwhile doing and our peninsular tour was a really lovely day out. The scenery to Hermanus was stunning. I hadn't imagined South Africa to be so scenic. Thank you so much. Truly memorable.”
Tina & Keith Darlington (travelled South Africa 2016)

“Pippa De Bruyn read my mind. She new exactly what I wanted. And then she delivered it. Perfectly; on a platter. We had a wonderfully interesting and entertaining week in the Karoo and on the South Coast of South Africa – even with a three month old baby. She anticipated our every need and her attention to detail is extraordinary – picking not just the right guest houses but the right rooms. I doubt that one can get this sort of bespoke service, at this price, anywhere else. Best Kept Secret it really is, and a marvel to boot!”
Prof Richard Calland & Rebecka Michel (travelled South Africa 2016)

‘From the time we met you to our return home, I found the itinerary, service, organization, agents, guides and drivers absolutely phenomenal. The itinerary you arranged was with the greatest of care, thoughtfulness and to our absolute dreams and wishes and as you promised us, we were royally taken care of. You 'got us' perfectly. Pippa, I can never thank you enough for organising such a wonderful trip. It was beyond my wildest dreams. We really didn't have to worry about a single aspect of the trip. You are wonderful and if I ever go to India again you will be THE one to organise it for me.
Sharon Markovitz (travelled India, 2015)

A spectacular trip, thank you thank you for making a mom and daughter’s visit to incredible India so special. We were constantly enveloped in kindness and organisation. From the outset you really understood what our needs and desires were for this trip. We saw an amazing piece of India! Our guides and driver were insightful and made travelling from one place to another almost seamless which is quite a feat with all the people, cars and cows! They were accommodating and flexible in doing what we wanted to do. We stayed in places beyond anything we could have imagined, with extra special touches thrown in – we are still adapting to life beyond a palace! Thank you thank you for putting together our incredible journey.

‘Having the best best best best time!!! Thank you! Just arrived at our next stop and my heart nearly stopped. Still catching my breath. Thank for everything
We could NOT have done this without you! Our feedback form brimming with ‘excellents’. Such a blessing to have you on board. —Lindy Cohen Lindy Cohen (travelled North India, 2015)

‘What can I say??? This is incredible. Thank you for all your incredible planning. A real stress free bespoke India experience. We couldn’t’ wish for more. Loved Mumbai – hotel choice perfect; guide was great. After a few days in beautiful Pondicherry the Tanjore stop – with its dark tranquil room and blue bathroom – was perfect place to zone out; en route to Chettinad the horse temple was memorable and beautiful. Visalam was exquisite. Rooms and service throughout impeccable and gracious. We can’t wait for tomorrow. Thank you Pippa for such perfect planning and choices.’
Debby C (travelled South India, 2015)

‘Pippa has helped us with two fabulous trips—one to South Africa and another to India. We were so fortunate to have found her and have many thanks to give her.
She is very knowledgeable about South Africa and had many helpful suggestions and insider tips that we never would have considered. Her enthusiasm for our travel destinations was contagious and her sense of humor as we worked out the details was delightful.
From our tours in Cape Town, the Stellenbosch wine country, and Cape Point, to snorkeling with cape fur seals in Hout Bay, a side trip to Zimbabwe/Zambia to take a microlight flight over Victoria Falls, and a safari in Sabi Sands—it was all perfectly organized and executed. Given our very positive experience in South Africa, when we decided to go to India, our first thought was to contact Pippa again as we knew that she had also written an India travel book. Once again, she came through splendidly. All of our arrangements were perfectly coordinated and her partners in India were amazing. We were met as arranged at each destination and transported in comfort. All of our drivers were very skilled and we felt safe, in spite of the truly chaotic traffic in India. The guides were incredible and we learned so much about India--it is a beautiful country with much to offer. Accommodations were nearly always superb. Pippa gave us options with enough information to make informed choices that fit our own needs and preferences. We stayed in small villages and large cities and felt at home in each place. Thank you Pippa, for two truly memorable trips.’
Karen McArthur (travelled India and South Africa)

‘I have to say that our journey was one of the best ever, I enjoyed every day! SA has really very much to offer and is different from Europe in a good sense.
I am very grateful to you as your suggestions helped us a lot, in fact I myself could never have arranged such a successful trip. Not only did you order very good lodges for us, but also suggested itineraries and special things, so THANK YOU, well done!’
Ingegerd Walnum (travelled South Africa)

WOW. Back from our wonderful journey through Namibia.
It all went swimmingly. Too many highlights to list. Stunning scenery...as you know. A social and visual whirlwind. Damaraland was as wild as we could have hoped, with great sightings of Elephant and Giraffe. Thank you so much for your help in putting it all together.’ James Dobree (travelled Namibia)

‘Best Kept assist in so many countless ways. From domestic airline quotations to hotel bookings to restaurant reservations to guide referrals to currency exchange recommendations, to saving suggestions thus creating a great trip at a reasonable price. Thank you, Best Kept and keep up the good work!’
