Review

I chose to go to South Africa with PMGY and have not regretted it for one minute. I'm staying in Cape Town in the volunteer house at the moment with 30 other people from all over the world - even just living in the house is such an interesting experience, so much fun and so great meeting so many different people. I also lived with a host family at the start of my stay which was a good experience, it's much quieter with a host family but gives you a chance to really get stuck in with the volunteer work. Cape Town is a great place to live in and work in - so much to do yet volunteering here as well really opens your eyes and proves how much help is needed here.
PMGY have been brilliant, even just as I showed interest they were immediately engaged in what I was asking them. They put a lot of effort and time into answering my questions completely and would check up on my planning progress if we weren't in touch for too long. They really put me at ease about the whole trip and made it much easier than many other companies that I got in contact with. Plus I've just chosen to extend my volunteering experience here for 6 more weeks which speaks for itself about how enjoyable this experience is! You won't regret it :)

Would you recommend this program?
