We would like to thank Peter for the very informative tour and bring us down safely . He is so polite and patient. With tour guides like him we could definitely increase tourism here and be proud of people like him to fly our flag. He’s a gem take care of him. Kids also loved the ride with him. He was also glad and happy to receive info from my daughter whose an engineer and knew about the construction works at the pass. So was a good day for all 🙏💝Thank you Roof of Africa

This is something to savour as this famous Pass is being tarred.
Soon it will no longer be the same hair raising ride that so many like.
The whole tour is very professional and well worth doing.

The day was a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this tour operator. The tour guide/driver was knowledgable and a very good driver. We had confidence in his skills negotiating the exciting pass. The vehicle was comfortable and pleasantly spacious. Views were breath taking! The local village offers some pleasant refreshments, yum yum. Booking and payment was easy and hassle free- no endless paperwork but good efficient forms that covered all the relevant information needed. All in all a great experience!

Right from the start of the enquiry process, through to booking and on the day the customer service was BRILLIANT. Emile was super helpful - when we had an issue with our hotel the night before our trip he gave us local information that was really useful. This was the only tour we booked from the UK and so a lot was resting on it. We had a superb day.
Even though we had a 4 wheel vehicle we were so pleased that we didn't drive ourselves. Our driver guide was very knowledgeable, he spoke good English and was very conscientious.
The scenery is amazing and so different on either side of the pass. We chose to go on a horse ride from a village and it was great. Although the horses were "bomb proof" as they have to be, the route was interesting, up a hill, through a river etc. Wonderful.
Thank you Emile and Roof of Africa Tours for a memorable day

We were picked up for the tour at our lodge and made our way up Sani Pass. During the whole tour Aldo, our guide, never tired of giving us information and answering our endless questions about the people, the culture and the history of Lesotho. The knowledge he was willing to share with us was just amazing. On the way up Sani Pass he stopped whenever we wanted to, so that we could take pictures. In Lesotho we were picked up by a tour guide, who took us up to a village, where we had a chance to see how the villagers live. I loved the singing. The picknick lunch at the river was delicious. On our way back we took time to have a beer in the highest Pub in Africa, which by that time was surrounded by clouds. Aldo drove us safely and expertly around the twenty-one hairpin curves through the dense fog - Thank you. It was a great tour!!

We had a great day with our guide Aldo. While driving over the beautiful Sani Pass Aldo told us a lot about the environment, history of South-Africa and so on. He really did his very best, and succeeded, to give us a view into as many aspects of the life in South-Africa and Lesotho as possible. From many different viewpoints we definitely learned a lot during this day, which made it one of the greatest experiences of our holiday. We would recommend this tour to everybody, and don't forget to as your guide a lot of questions about the history of South-Africa and the life there nowadays.

My husband and I did the immersive day tour from underberg to lesotho with the guide "Peter", who picked us up at our cottage. He was absolutely fantastic, we couldn't have wished for a better guide, he knew so much about the nature, animals, history and culture around. We were absolutely impressed by his knowledge and how safe we felt travelling with him on this bumpy road. The communication with R.o.A.T. and their service was excellent. Even the vegan lunch I asked for was no problem and was good. Unfortunately the horse ride was a bit short but as it started raining, it was completely understandable and we got so wet that it was okay for us to return earlier. Also the basotho who came with us to the horse ride was a really open and friendly guy. We were lucky that we ended up alone doing the tour on that day, so we were a bit more flexible concerning spending more or less time here and there. We would definitely recommend this tour, even though it's a long, long day it was totally worth it!!!!! Thanks again to Peter for doing a great job :-)
