We are a registered, small brand located in Johannesburg South Africa. The founder of the company is Jane (Jani) Davids. My love-affair with travel started at school with lots of reading, a love of history and trips to Kwa-Zulu Natal (with my dad who was an ex-boxer turned trainer) for boxing tournaments and a hockey tournament (I played hockey); after school I lived in the Western Cape for two years to attend the University of the Western Cape. I chucked my Librarianship studies after two years and started a career in the banking industry.
These trips, including a trip that my mom took to Israel and Europe created a desire in me to travel and see the world. However, this just never seemed to peter out, so I decided that the only way I’ll ever get to see the world was to start my own tour operator business … and PhenixII Tour Group was born. I have never looked back since, and my passion for travel has grown exponentially; to the point that I now have the opportunity help others explore their great passion for travel by offering them high quality tours that they would love

We offer 14 and 18-day luxury, personalized authentic cultural vacation packages to select destinations in Europe, and still to come, South Africa.
We believe that travel is transformational. Our cultural vacations to select destinations in Europe and South Africa relate very well to the ‘legend of the Phoenix’ – you will be truly ‘reborn’ after having visited one of our destinations.

We strive to make the cultural experience for each individual in our groups educational, informative, enlightening, interesting, and, most of all, great fun.
We know that ‘luxury travel’ means different things to different people. Since we don’t have a “one glove fits all” mentality, our activities are aimed at both the young and the young at heart.
