“Effortless”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

David is friendly, professional and keen for his clients to get a good experience during their travels in South Africa.

We went on the overnight Garden Route Safari with our two year old son and David was very understanding about the need for regular stops during our journeys to and from the resort. We had a great time and would recommend him and his tours.

“White Shark Tour - February 2013”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We went on the Shark Dive Tour on the 15th of February. We were picked up at our hotel, on time (at 5h in the morning), and had the best day ever. The tour guide was very knowledgable, and we learned quite alot about white sharks. David was very helpful, and we had no problems with our booking or the service provider thanks to African Blue. Will definately recommend them to anyone!

“Wine Tour”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

David provided us with a fantastic private wine tour. He picked us up right on time, and was able to accommodate our personal requests. He made sure we had a lunch reservation at the beautiful Cafe Bon Bon, and kept us on track to enjoy 3 wine tastings. I can't wait to come back and take more friends.

“David the Genie made magic of our adventure, a dream come true.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Having booked us on a luxury safari at Sabi Sands that more than met our expectations David rescued the remainder of our vacation with seamlessly orchestrated adventures to numerous historical and breathtakingly beautiful sites in his beloved country. Very professional, punctual and fun!

Hi Fay
Thank you for taking the time to rate and recommend my services.
Each review is valuable to African Blue Tours & Safaris and also helps other travelers to make educated choices with whom to trust with their African adventure.
It was an absolute pleasure to be able to show Lilian & Yourself around Cape Town and put together your luxury Kruger Safari in the Sabi Sands Reserve.
Please let me know if any of your friends & family ever need help to explore South Africa.
Regards
David

“Great time on the Garden Route”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

First, my disclaimer- while I booked my tour through African Blue, my tour ended up being operated by Tompson's Africa. The tour, however, was great, and David (of African Blue) was very helpful. So this review is mostly a review of David and African Blue.

We were on our honeymoon and while we were on our own on safari and in Cape Town, we were looking for a Garden route group tour for a few days in the middle of our trip. We booked a great 4 day tour with David, who also helped to arrange our hotel in Cape Town.

As i mentioned our tour was great, but David had it provided by a different operator. When we arrived in Cape Town after the tour, there was a problem with the room that the hotel wouldnt fix, so as a last resort, we called David to help us sort it out. He actually came over at 9pm and convinced the hotel to give us a new room for the night, and to fix the problem the next day. What a great advocate!

We also booked a private wine tour with David, but my wife was sick that morning so we ended up on a tour of a doctor's office instead. David helped us sort things out, and we booked a second day with him so we could ultimately do our wine tour as planned.

In sum, we can't really comment on the quality of the garden route tour, because ours ended up operated by another company. But it was a fantastic tour nonetheless! I can comment on how great David was with the booking process, and how great an advocate he was when we were in South Africa.

Hi Michael

Thank you for taking the time to rate and recommend my services, even though your Garden Route tour was operated by one of our trusted partner companies.

Wow, what a relief that I was able twist the night managers arm at that late stage for an upgrade from your apartment to a complimentary night in their 5 star hotel, especially as it was your honeymoon :-)

It was also an absolute pleasure to show you two around our tasty wine regions, especially after our unfortunate false start a day earlier.
Please let me know if any of your friends & family ever need help to explore South Africa.

Regards
David
