“I would just like to thank you so much on the opportunity that I am working in the UAE, I know that this would not have been possible if it was not for what Marcus and Carol have done!

I’m loving every minute out here and I am making the best of this opportunity to build a greater life outside South Africa.

You guys are really doing an amazing job with helping people like me by giving us hope and a chance in life to be great and make the most of our lives.

So once again thank you so much!”

Odette on Viking

“Waitre d’ held interviews in Cape Town in 2016 for Viking Ocean Cruises, and within 4 months I was back at sea where my heart will always belong. It has been amazing having Waitre d’ as my agent. No hidden agendas, no surprise and unnecessary costs, always ready to assist, even if its just keeping contact and making sure I am still happy. There are very few agents out there that care for your personal well being as sincerely as Carol and Marcus and their team. Waitre d’ – I give you all a standing ovation for all the effort and personal attention you pay to us, Proud to be part of the Waitre D’ family” Loving my life of travel and adventure” Thank you!
