I took a 6 day Garden Route tour in September/October, and it was the highlight of my trip to South Africa. Charlene was such a knowledgeable and friendly guide, and went out of her way to make sure everyone had a fun, safe experience. As a solo traveller, I was slightly concerned about joining a group where I didn't know anyone, but as there were only 7 people in total we gelled instantly, and I made friends from a diverse selection of countries including Singapore, Switzerland and Germany.
The scenery on the Garden Route is spectacular, and the mix of activities Earthstompers include caters for everyone, from canoeing to bungee jumping and everything in between. All the backpackers we stayed in were clean and comfortable, and we had some delicious braai in the evenings.
There is a lot packed in to this tour, so the pace may not suit everyone, but it is great value for money, with attentive guides and some of the most breathtaking countryside you will ever witness. I highly recommend it.
And if you have the courage, do the bungee jump!More
