The Sani Pass was more impressive than we were led to believe. Twists and turns and sheer cliffs made me very grateful for our exceptionally competent guide. We were both amazed and delighted when we realized that we were on our own in the vehicle with lots of room for my legs as I am a tall person. The small touches were unexpected when the table was laid and the picnic basket opened at the view points. There was no other traffic which then made it worth getting up early and we had a guide all to ourselves. We did go to places that no-one else frequents and met with shepherds which my wife had always wanted to do. This cost us almost the same as all the other tours. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Rene Van Rooyen - Georgia USA
