“The best way to see the beautiful country of south africa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

I recently took the 3 day western cape tour and the 4 day garden route tour. Both trips were impeccably well organised and ran smoothly. The busses are comfortable and the guides are flexible with stop-offs and are even happy to alter the itinerary if needed. Our guides marlyon (western cape) and Issac (garden route) were friendly, knowledgable and easy going and in both cases really made the trip! Issac even bought us all an ice cream! The tours are very reasonably priced considering how much is on offer and include all accommodation. We opted for the budget accommodation and stayed in dorms in hostels. All the hostels were clean and comfortable although sometimes a little busy! I would probably opt for the pricier option of private rooms in future. We saw so much of the beautiful countryside and never felt rushed or "herded" around. The guides let you enjoy every stop and never hurry you on. We met wonderful people on the trips...some who I will keep up with forever! Hotspots tours would be ideal for first time travellers, students or those travelling alone x

Nice! Thanks for this massive compliment and for promoting our tours. We love our guides too and hope that the little extra's they do on tour will make you remember the tour experience even longer.

Great to know you liked the accommodation and itinerary of the tours. So, when are you heading back here? We'll be ready to make sure you (or your family or friends) have a good time on tour, to explore even more of exceptional South Africa!
Kind Regards, Johan du Toit

“One Day Wine Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

This was an AMAZING trip! Our guide was SPECTACULAR. We got to see all the major sights along the route as well as some extra stops that just made our adventure complete. Morrie, our guide, really added to the enjoyment of our tour. Cape Point, seals, penguins, wine, what else can you ask for? The trip was memorable! :) :)

Hi Bridget.

Our Cape Point & Wine tour is very popular tour indeed - and we also love the combination of Cape Point, nature, scenic drives, good wine, penguins and other wildlife!

Hope you'll always remember your scenic drive along the Cape Peninsula when you think back of your time in South Africa. I will let your guide ( Maudi ) know about your excellent review.
Thank you.

Regards;
Johan

“Fabulous weekend!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

I went on the 2 day safari trip while on a recent trip to south africa. It was definitely my most memorable weekend packed full of exciting things. We did a game drive on the first day before spending the night in a fab hostel where we had the tastiest braii (big BBQ) and played pool in the hostel bar all evening where we mad plenty of friends. The following day was crammed full of unforgettable experiences. We got to spend the morning with 3 elephants where we hand fed them and got to have photos while sitting on their knees or backs. It was incredible to get up so close to these majestic animals. From there we went to an ostrich farm which is definitely an experience you won't forget as you see people ride them and attempt to kiss them. Finally we stopped at cango animal ranch where you ge to see lots of different animals in a zoo like setting but get taken round by a guide which is very informative. Here we were abl to pay a little extra to get up close with some of the animals including white tiger cubs, lemurs, snakes or cheetahs. I spent time cuddling the cheetahs which was unbelievable they were so tame and purred away while you stroked them.

Fabulous company to do a safari with as you get to do so many more things with them.
