Sand boarding in the dunes was a fun afternoon activity. It was hot and sunny but felt cool as the sand is cooled underneath by water, so you could even go barefoot. The boards that you just velcro to your feet are better than the ones with snowboarding bindings. It is a little bit hard to turn, but it was... More

We can't imagine a better way to spend our week in South Africa. You get to see so much with this tour company. And unlike the other tour companies a lot of the excursions are fairly active. So you don't feel like a fat slob after a week of sitting on the bus. I highly recommend Cape to Addo.

Great tour at a great value. Lori was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area. He gave us plenty of time at all the stops to walk around and take pictures. He stopped at one of the local markets and bought us a variety of local snack which were very tasty. The Fish and Chip lunch was... More

Great time on the sand dunes despite it really raining. The guide was mindful of going an appropriate pace for the group but only stopped once to get pictures. Really good fun and value for money, the only thing that could have made it better (apart from the sun!) would have been letting us free at the end to go... More

Fun tour all around. The sandboarding was a unique thing to check out, particularly since none of us have snowboarded before. Got sand just about everywhere but it was a fun time. The quadbikes were also fun to ride around on. Got a great tour of the dunes and got to pick up some speed. Unfortunately the bikes weren't in... More

My sister and I (both seniors) joined a wonderful group of young travelers for a fantastic week of culture, adventure and lots of laughs along The Garden Route. Lourens was a fantastic guide and excellent driver, with a great sense of humor. We hiked in beautiful national parks, met lots of ostriches which some tried to ride, we partied and... More

We traveled all over the Cape, and crammed in loads: Cape Point, coastal drive, Township visit, wine tasting, penguin spotting, and fish and chips in one of the harbors! What made it more enjoyable were the other folk. Very welcoming, and tour guide Lourens and his mate had a good vibe about them too.
