Gecko Tours can be evaluated as a company that finalizes itineraries in a timely fashion. Sharon's suggestions proved to be quite helpful. My driver/guide, Xolani,was professional and knowledgable in the history of the area, the cultures, the flora and fauna, and answered every question I asked with a genuine smile! As a "backseat" driver, I appreciated his defensive driving. He... More

We were traveling in a large group of 11 people from Cape Town, with a lot of luggage, and I was impressed with how accommodating they were to us, providing transportation and a luggage trailer for the long...

Nelis the guide arrived on time. I made the reservation for private tour only the day before. I shared my interest in tree top tour but was apprehensive if I could take it up due to a back problem. Nelis immediately suggested a 1 hour zip line tour rather than tree top canopy tour. We then went to the suspension... More
