Myself, and 3 other ladies have just had the pleasure of not only visiting a beautiful country , but also meeting a wonderful, polite and very knowledgeable tour guide, i.e. Percy of Percy Tours.

This was our first trip to SA and Percy knew everything , he is a credit to his profession. We did 3 trips with Percy, Whale Watching in Hermanus, The Cape of Good Hope and also Inverdoorn Game Reserve and all of them were excellent, brilliant infact ! he knew exactly where to go to , what places would suit us best and he made this holiday a holiday of a lifetime for all 4 of us.

And not only did he do all this , but he also went shopping for us and delivered our goods to us whilst we were in Camps Bay ( he was in Hermanus !) now that does go above and beyond the call of duty !

Thanks Percy , it was great !

Percy booked our walking township tour. Our guide, Peter, put us in the very capable hands of "Mr Willie"' a very stately and charming gentleman. I admit as a city person, I was a bit nervous walking the township but it became quite obvious that Mr Willie was well respected and well known in this community of 90,000 plus. If you have an opportunity to do this township walk, please do it. You will learn first hand the daily lives and struggles of the people as well as history. The children are excited to see tourist and pose for pictures, not for rand, but because their kids. I promised Mr Willie that I would send the pictures to him to share with the kids. The people were gracious and one couple allowed us to visit inside their small but very tidy home.

It's off the typical beaten track for tourist but I am very happy and enriched to have spent a morning with Mr Willie.

What a guy Percy is!!!
Very knowledgeable, with all the right contacts.
He likes to get involved and interact with his customers in the Hermanus area.
He is the epitome of a friendly tourist guide...and we'll use his services when we return.
He arranged the whale watching from a Cessna plane ( a holiday high-spot), and all our return restaurant visits.
I recommend him to all.

This was our first trip to Hermanus and we booked Percy Tours to take us on the wine tour in the Hermanus area. Best decision we ever made - we spent an awesome day sampling what the area has to offer. Percy is very knowledgeable and entertaining - thanks to him, our tastings and lunch was very well organised and best of all, we could enjoy all this without having to worry about drinking and driving. Definitely recommended if you want to truly enjoy this experience!! Thanks Percy - you were a great tour host, very professional, and an interesting and fun person to be around. We will certainly be back!!

Fantastic day out. Wasn't sure about a wine tour as i'm more of a beer drinker but found it a pleasant experience and enjoyed learning about the area and wines. Percy very knowledgable and made sure that all our needs were met. Nothing too much trouble. A must do tour if you visit Hermanus. Glen and Cora Somerset England
