    Didn't look at all the details, but the 14 night one including hotels, flights, tickets, a few special events and babysitting was £4,000 per person.

    Looking at ticket prices in CT last time were around £7 pp pd.

    Canny profit like.

    Someone else on the trip advisor thread reckons that it might be a scam as can only be found on an obscure link and if it was true, then all the main tour companies would be all owa it by now.

    I can cancel my accommodation, so wait and see....

    all times are local

    QATAR Airways

    11:10 LGW - CPT via DOH

    Return
    Sat, 11 Jan 2020
    QATAR Airways

    12:35 CPT - LHR via DOH

    Got me eye on these. Long stop in Qatar but when I flew to Sri Lanka I only gave myself a two hour stopover in Bahrain, my flight from LHR was delayed and I got on my connection with minutes to spare. Would have had to wait another 24 hours if I'd missed it. You can knock a few hours off the return stopover if you're willing to pay another £70.

    Accommodation is at 106 on Adderley (next to CT train station). £322 for 11 nights.

    Thought about staying at the Happy Rhino but the reviews are dreadful.

    I think they would prefer any newbies to buy their travel off them tho rather than latching on to the regular lads that do it themselves and dish out the Gen

    Aye mate.

  5. Yep it was class for first timers. If it hadn't been for that and George we'd have done package tours for our first view.

    My ITKs still think it's Centurion Boxing Day and PE mid-Jan btw.

    Piece of piss . Just get the SA ticket website into your favourites and keep checking for when they are on sale.
    Purchase when they are and print at home.

    Flight booked, £520 return. Out 31st Dec via Zurich and 16 hours, back 10th Jan via Vienna and 20 hours coming back.

    Anyone ever stayed in a backpackers hostel in CT? Can get flight and accommodation for £600 if I stay in one of those places.

    Anyone want booking on the Newlands brewery tour at 10am on Saturday 4th (second days play). Lasts an hour so you'll miss the first half hours play. About a fiver a head with two complimentary beers and a few other tasters. Can't do it after a days play cos you have to be sober(ish).
     
  13. Anyone stayed at 106 On Adderley?

    Who you flying with Paddy?

  20. Match tickets will be a tenner day from memory. Digs obviously vary. Newlands train station drops you outside the ground so you can stay well out of town in theory.
