Tour 1
Depart South Africa 14 June 2015 and return 19 June 2015 arriving 20 June 2015

Due to the extremely positive response from clients who travelled in 2011, we were asked by numerous clients to again book rooms at the Lindner Hotel Rheinresidenz. Although the hotel has been taken over by the InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG) and renamed the Indigo Hotel ( we are pleased to confirm that we are holding a substantial room allotment*.

The hotel is located a short walk from the banks of the River Rhine, and a 15 minute walk to the Alstadt and famous shopping at Konigsallee. The “U” Bahn station, “Nordstrasse” is located 350m from the hotel and then a seven minute journey direct to Messe Düsseldorf.

* Due to the extreme booking conditions placed on us by the Indigo Hotel, we are required to pay for all rooms sold by the 10th December 2014. For this reason we will invoice all clients for the accommodation before this date and all unsold rooms will be returned to the hotel. Bookings after this date will subject to availability.
