‘Incredible honeymoon, incredible service’ Back to top

‘We first had the pleasure of interacting with Here’s My Card back in 2009 when I had the amazing luck of winning a trip away organised by them which set the bar for all subsequent holidays. 7 years later when it came to arrange our honeymoon it was the simplest choice of our wedding planning to use them again.

Kerry was fantastic in listening to our wants and generating a tailored holiday that covered everything we had hoped for. They work with so many amazing properties but the small touches such as booking awesome dinner options and providing tons of suggestions for where to go and what to see are what really make the difference.

The service even covered her alerting us to an impending storm that may have impacted our flight to Kruger. Whist we chilled out in the wine-lands oblivious to things Kerry had already booked us 2 hotel options just in case the flights were cancelled.

Incredible honeymoon, incredible service. Thanks so much again.’

‘Epic trip’ Back to top

‘Thank you to Here's My Card for organizing an epic trip to South Africa.

This was our family's first safari, and with two small children we were a bit nervous. We had specific requests as far as activities to keep our kids occupied including archery and a special birthday surprise for our daughter, who had just turned 11. Kerry went to great measures to be sure all of our requests were met, and even surprised our daughter with a special birthday gift upon our arrival in Johannesburg!

The staff at Singita's Pamashana Lodge was spectacular - always attentive to our needs and very kid-friendly.’

‘Amazing trip’ Back to top

‘An incredible experience, difficult to imagine how it could’ve been better.

Kerry, thank you so much for helping arrange such an amazing trip. Everything worked out incredibly well and exceeded even our lofty expectations. The advice ahead of the trip, the ongoing dialogue and follow-up to make sure everything was ok was truly appreciated. From our time at Victoria Falls and then driving through Kruger and staying at Ngala, to finishing with golf (extreme 19!) at Legends, the whole trip couldn’t have been planned and executed any better.

What was particularly impressive is that we didn’t make it straight-forward for you. We’re difficult to arrange for, difficult to please and generally painful to interact with but you showed unwavering patience and professionalism helping at every step of the way, tailoring the holiday to meet our various (and sometime unique!) needs. We will be recommending your services and definitely using them again on our next adventure! Finally, thank you for birthday messages and surprises during the trip, completely unexpected but made the trip especially memorable.’

‘Honeymoon for the history books’ Back to top

‘When we set out to plan our honeymoon, my husband and I wanted to go on the trip of a lifetime. We have gone on some truly amazing trips in our lives so this was no small task.

Here’s My Card totally delivered. Kerry worked with us to craft a trip that was truly ours. We originally really wanted to go to Mauritius are so happy she convinced us to start our trip in Mozambique instead. Benguerra was exactly the unique experience we wanted to kick things off. Every decision we made based on Kerry’s suggestions were validated at every turn. We went to the best restaurants and stayed in amazing hotels that were full of surprises and personal touches. Even the itinerary was a surprise!

I have already been asked by several people how we booked our trip so they should be prepared for some referrals! This was a honeymoon for the history books.’

‘Best trip ever’ Back to top

‘Just a quick note to thank you for organising a fantastic week for us. It was the best trip we ever had together. Everything worked so well. The Cape Grace is still excellent and Kwandwe was amazing. I think Uplands Homestead was the most beautiful place I have ever been to. Not sure why but it really hit a spot for me. We hardly saw a cloud for the week and the trip to Robben Island, Table Mountain and all out transfers and flights worked like clockwork. We will carry the memories with us for a long time.’

‘Planned to perfection’ Back to top

‘We were back in South Africa for our fourth trip in seven years and all of them have been planned to perfection for us by Clare. This trip was a bit of a ‘hybrid’ – we started out with two good friends, this became four in the middle of the week for a few days and then we finished the second weekend all on our own in the beautiful Leeu Estate as our friends headed off for more fun on safari in Kruger, and back in Cape Town respectively.

As we’ve done on our other trips we always try and stay in different places and visit different wine estates and restaurants. Our day in the middle of the week on the Wine Tram in Franschhoek with a picnic at Grand Provence and then finishing the day with dinner at La Residence was a truly memorable experience for all of us.

It was also lovely to meet Clare again at our hotel in Camps Bay when we arrived. Thank you once again Clare – a truly wonderful trip (again) and we’ll be back so watch this space......’

‘Out of this world’ Back to top

‘We had the most magical holiday thanks to Clare and the team.

Everything was organised perfectly and importantly Clare listened and understood our budget and found the most wonderful experiences. From restaurants to hotels we couldn’t have asked for more and we loved each location and property we stayed at. Everything as totally perfect! The holiday was finished with the a trip to Kwandwe Safari Lodge which was out of this world!’

‘Flawless arranging & professional service’ Back to top

‘It’s an interesting thing getting married… a thousand things to consider, especially the venue. We asked Kerry for a suggestion of a Bush Lodge that could cater for us, and pretty quickly she came back with Lion Sands. What a suggestion that turned out to be! As you will know anything and everything with Here’s my Card is easy! But to find that, that ease continued all the way to the lodge, its managers and staff is a prime example of why we love to use Here’s My card. Their recommendations are top notch, never wrong, and the service is superb. Of Lion sands I can say this:

Everything was flawless, service was superb, food delicious, drinks refreshing, and just smiles all round.

And even though we planned everything and took measure for that which we couldn’t, when it rained on the Friday night, the team took it in their stride as easily as a spilt drink needs replacing. To see guides, butlers, managers, cleaning staff, from 3 lodges coming together, some without knowing each other’s names, and putting together a 5 star dinner for 70 people, in 30 minutes was something to behold. All while keeping the festivities going at the bar. Truly that was the special moment for me from Lion Sands on the weekend. Such ease. Such class.

So to Kerry and Clare, from Renee and I, all we can say is thank you, thank you, for your flawless arranging, professional service, and a truly once in a lifetime suggestion!’

‘Thoughtful & thorough’ Back to top

‘Thanks to Clare and team for helping us get setup with one of our best vacations ever! Clare was very thoughtful and thorough in researching lodges to meet our needs… and she introduced us to Kwandwe resort which turned out to be the perfect option for my wife and I to bring our 5 year old daughter. We loved Kwandwe so much - the game drives were brilliant, our ranger and guide (Ivan and Ernie) were very skilled and attentive, and we had so many terrific animal experiences.

The food and lodging was top notch (I’m still stuffed thinking about all the food we ate) and we really felt cared for by the staff. Kerala had a great time too – she got to go on a ‘Poo safari’ (a lot more fun than it may sound) and she made cookies one of the afternoons while Ann got an in-room massage. The amenities were great. Thanks again for a great trip!’

‘Another great trip’ Back to top

‘This was yet another great trip organised by Here's My Card. I think it's our 7th or 8th with them. Their knowledge of the best places to visit and to stay at in South Africa is second to none. Our trip was organised in great detail, with nothing left to chance and I liked the way they kept on file details of all our preferences from previous trips and automatically provided them to the various hotels we stayed at. On this trip we branched out and went on safari and Singita Boulders didn’t disappoint – it was the highlight of the whole holiday. While Here’s My Card doesn't usually book flights, they provided us with lots of very helpful advice about the pros and cons of different methods of domestic travel, particularly to/from the Kruger which was terribly helpful and also recommended and booked all our restaurant reservations. We wouldn't think of travelling to South Africa with out them. Thanks again for all your tremendous help. We couldn't have done it without you.’

‘Here’s My Card did us proud’ Back to top

‘Clear your diary we’re going to South Africa. So….how do you find out where to go and what to see and do and moreover make all the bookings at short notice? Thank you, Clare for giving us the total solution, arranged so professionally with no fuss that was tailored exactly to our needs in shortorder and gave us such value-added time in South Africa. Too many highlights to detail but it is clear one trip will not be enough….we will be back and we will definitely be using your services again. From arranging Robben Island tickets the day before, to eclectic bookings at carnivore restaurants, and The Mother’s Ruin gin joint tip, we so enjoyed each day and every excursion. Here’s My Card did us proud. Lovely to meet you also and looking forward to the next trip already.’

‘Unforgettable holiday’ Back to top

‘Thank you so much for all your help in organising our holiday to South Africa. We had an amazing holiday! We didn't want to leave…We experienced the delights of Cape Town, the treats of the winelands and then had a really fantastic safari experience at Ngala Tented Camp. We scored everything a 10 and saw an amazing range of animals and now have wonderful photos to look back on. All in all we had an unforgettable holiday. Thanks so much Clare and Here’s My Card.’

‘Excellent knowledge’ Back to top

‘Kerry did a fabulous job of finding lovely hotels for our 10 day trip along the Garden Route and ending in Cape Town for 9 days. We were thrilled with her additional touch of booking restaurants for us to enjoy and giving us lots of tips for vineyards, restaurants and excursions we would not want to miss.

It’s clear she has excellent knowledge of the area and relationships with lovely places to ensure that our trip was as perfect as possible. We didn’t make it very easy on her as we decided start our trip around the world in South Africa at the last minute (we had originally planned to start in New Zealand) and gave her with less than 2 weeks to book everything! I’m sure that was no small feat, but she handled it smoothly and kept us in the loop at all times.

Her communication was impeccable. We were incredibly thankful to have found Kerry and would highly recommend her to find special places (hotels, restaurants and much more) to make your travel plans as spectacular as possible. Thanks so much Kerry! We hope to be back again!’

‘Time of our lives’ Back to top

‘We honestly have no words to describe how much we appreciate and thank what you put together for us. It was in all terms (and we´re not exaggerating) PERFECT. We had the most incredible time on all the hotels, places, restaurants and activities in general.

We totally felt the effort and love you put in crafting this perfect moment for us, Kerry. La Residence + all Franschhoek activities were the most romantic scenario to kick-off our honeymoon. Then experiencing the magic of Cape Town....what a city!! Every plan, every restaurant, every experience made us totally fell in love with the city, and then, as the most perfect cherry on top, Safari was amazing and Dulini was totally beyond our expectations.

The managers and staff at every hotel had a great contribution in making this a very special trip.

We will totally recommend, encourage & foster all of friends to not only visit South Africa but to do it through Here’s My Card.

On behalf of the Pardo Gonzalez family THANK YOU!! We had the time of our lives and you made it possible.’

‘Amazing & 4th flawless trip with Here’s My Card’ Back to top

‘We recently returned to our favourite holiday destination and once again used the excellent services of Here¹s My Card Travel.

We have been on many safaris so we are always looking for something new. On this occasion after Clare & Kerry¹s advice, we flew to the Kalahari Desert for a very different experience, which also included horseback riding amongst the wild animals, a truly amazing experience.

Back in Cape Town and Franschhoek our itinerary was laid out for us with numerous restaurant reservations and daily activity ideas - a must for relaxed travellers who don't tend to be so organised! This gave us a great programme and plenty of ideas that we wouldn't have considered without their help. I particularly recommend the cycle ride from Camps Bay to Cape Town and the market at the Biscuit Mill on a Saturday. Staying in the apartment in Clifton Bay offered a completely different feel to this trip, outstanding views and more unforgettable memories.

To sum up, we had another amazing, flawless trip with Clare and Kerry¹s help. It truly is a beautiful country to explore again and again and we can¹t wait to book our FIFTH time with Here¹s My Card very soon!’

‘Professional & approachable’ Back to top

‘Thank you for your yet again wonderful suggestions of where Stefano, Umberta, Frank and Evie should stay and wine and dine in Franschhoek. Marigold served Indian specialties to fine dining standards as did the incomparable Delaire Graff. The Library gave us the opportunity to relax and enjoy being within a very short walk of all the delightful shops, restaurants and bars on the Main Street through Franschhoek but at the same time was extremely quiet and with wonderful views of the mountain from the upstairs terrace, sitting sipping champagne and watching the sunset is a must.

Every minute of our stay was perfection, your attention to detail in organising our trip was amazing and we will be in touch for more travel advice in Southern Africa when we head south again from London.

Here's My Card is quiet simply the most professional and approachable 'Trip Advisor' & we have no hesitation in highly recommending you to everyone we know and meet.’

‘Trip organised to perfection’ Back to top

‘How much did we love our holiday? A LOT. From the time we set foot at Cape Town airport the whole experience ran like clockwork. I don't think I have ever been on a holiday, where drivers collected and delivered their cargo (us) to the minute.

Clare organised the trip to perfection, we loved every restaurant and all our locations were heavenly. Of course, the food in South Africa is delicious, but our picnic lunch at Grande Provence was particularly memorable - and I don't even like picnics. Clare was very enthusiastic about our self-catering 'cottage' Lily Pond situated on the borders with Franschhoek, but even she didn't mention the enchanted garden nestling at the border. My daughter had recommended Babylonstoren, so I knew it would be on trend and gorgeous - which it was. We climbed Babel hill, canoed on the dam and my partner fished for bass (and caught some).

Thank you, Clare for all your efforts, and your patience when we kept changing our arrangements. Yes, I know it is part of the remit, but you never made me feel a problem to you. We will be back!!’

‘4th Amazing Trip with Here’s My Card’ Back to top

‘We had just returned from our 3rd trip with Here’s My Card in December. Kerry organised our annual family trip in to magical South Africa for us & our four children so when I approached her again to find something special for just me & Georg, I knew she would find somewhere special for us.

It was the most romantic holiday ever!

Mnemba Island is mix of naturel beauty and luxury service. Everything was very well organized and Kerry was taking care of every detail along the way to ensure it was perfect.

We had a cancelled flight and the girls were online with us helping us with new flights and all the arrangements to make this as seamless as possible. In the end, we opted for an extra night on Mnemba Island, which was wonderful.

Thank you for making our trip so special! Here’s to our next Here’s My Card Adventure & can’t wait to see what ideas you have for our next African Adventure!!…’

‘Amazingly hassle-free’ Back to top

‘This was truly the trip of a lifetime. We¹re returning to DC with so many fond and special memories ­ of fantastic food, wine, incredibly beautiful scenery, romantic evenings, game drives etc.

Thank you so much for setting all of this up for us. Cape Town exceeded our expectations in so many ways. And also, the trip was so well coordinated that we didn’t have to think about where we were going next, where we should go to dinner, or whether we needed to arrange transportation ­ you did all that for us, which made for an amazingly hassle-free vacation!

We had such a fantastic experience. Thank you, Clare, for pulling together such a memorable vacation for us! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends.’
