South African Airways Tours

I am looking at a tour through South African Airways Vacataions that appears to be reasonable and includes meals. Has anyone used South African Airways Vacations Tours? I am looking for a tour of Cape Town, the Wine Lands and Krueger, the Bachelor SA Getaway appears to be great. Let me know if anyone has been on this tour or if you have other suggestions. The price for this tour is $4,599.

Take a look at Lion World Tours. I think they partner with SAA. My wife and I used them last August and had a fantastic experience. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Just returned from booking a tour through SAA Vacations. SAA bumped us off a flight from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls. Because of the time difference we could not call SAA Vacations in Arizona for help, the help number given to us by SAA Vacation prior to our departure, in CapeTown, informed us it does not help with flight problems. We wound up spending an extra night in Johannesburg at the airport, wasting a pre-paid night at the fancy Victoria Falls Hotel and paying exorbintant airfare (from another vendor) to get us back on the scheduled tour track. The SAA agent in Johannesburg said the next flight was filled (it was not)and perhaps, if we returned on the next day she would put us on stand-by.

Upon our returnto the USA , SAA Vacations washed their hands of this problem by telling us we had to deal with the airline directly in South Africa. I would not recomend or use them again, no matter how cheap they pretend to be.!

Wow, why were you bumped in the first place? Don't they have local reps there to handle any problems?
