“Excellent way to do a shore excursion”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

After searching for anyone to do a rental from Walvis bay on a Sunday Port call, I came accross Namibia Tours and Safaris. i contacted them and they quickly sent me a quote. As we were a large group of twelve, it worked out to be too expensive. When I told them this, they quickly sent me other options and alternate ways of doing the trip. We ended up with a single van instead of landrover 4X4's and skipped the lunch to do our own. They were very flexible on the adapting of the trip to suit us. We were met at the port by Augustinius who showed us around. We stopped at the dune 7 and were given time to climb the dune, we went to the "moonlandscape" as well as the reserve area to look at the plants etc. We went to the local wimpy in Swakopmund for lunch and were also able to stop at the beachfront to look around at the shells and have a walk on the beach. All in all, I think we did pretty much everything that there was time to do. Augustinius was a fantastic guide and his knowledge of the plants, animals and especially the geology of the area was outstnding. I would highly recommend booking this as a shore excursion if you are going to Walvis Bay - There isn't anything much to see in Walvis if you just walk around the town! (especially on a Sunday!!)

“Now THIS is service AND value for money for self-drives”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

For the n-th time we went to Namibia to enjoy it's beautiful spaces, animals, people, etc. The last few times, we've used NTS for our self-drives (not just for a day-tour), and they consistently delivered a fantastic service for the right price. The cars are always of good quality, are always equipped exactly as we want it, and the support on the road is fantastic (flat tyres, chipped windscreen) as they know exectly where you have to go to service the car. They also know the out-of-the-way places to go to, the more adventurous places where not many other tourists come, and they are always a phone call away if you are not sure. We never felt unsecure or left to our own device. Namibia is a magic place, and NTS really help us discover it a little bit more every time we go there. Keep going, guys!
