Our guide on this tour was Andrew and apart from the beautiful places we went and the exciting things we did, it was really his personality that made this tour so enjoyable. Andrew did whatever he could to make the tour as pleasant as possible for everyone and put a lot of time and energy into it to make it happen. He also knew all kinds of interesting stories and trivia around the places we passed by and they were not the superficial, boring kind that you might expect from such a tour. As for the trip itself, it's worth sacrificing a little comfort and staying at the backpackers because that's apparently where most of the tour guests stay.
We had a wonderful time on this tour! Zaahid was our tour guide and went above and beyond to make sure we all had a good time and were taken care of! I also like that there was some flexibility with the activities. We were able to add zip lining and we wanted to go to the Cango ranch instead of the caves and he made that happen for us! The places we stayed were wonderful and a great value for the price!
The highlight of our trip to South Africa was this 4-Day Garden Route tour. Our guide was friendly, funny and helpful. This trip is loaded with activities like Canoeing, Hiking, Ostrich Riding and so on. The Big Game Drive was amazing and a must do. Bungy is not for the faint-hearted but is a phenomenal experience. The awesome part of the tour is the places the tour company had picked to stay. One night was in a lodge with Ostriches in the backyard, One night was in a beautiful room with a sea view and the third night was on the banks of a lake. The drive itself is extremely scenic and the price for the entire package is well worth it. Me and my wife had a wonderful time on this tour and would highly recommend this to anyone who wishes to have a fun-filled 4 days. Cheers!
This was an excellent tour with an top quality guide, interesting excursions, beautiful scenery, and very good accommodations. The tour was advertised as 3-star but the guest houses were all top notice with friendly staff and delicious breakfasts. The tour was a very good value compared with other similar tours along the Garden Route.
Great trip! Excellent enthusiastic guide, 4-full days of seeing the beautiful Garden Route and experiencing everything from canoeing and caving (included activities) to riding elephants, game drives and watching the keen / crazy ones bungy jump!
The scenery is stunning, accommodation good and it was overall a fab time. Definitely recommended as good value for money and a memorable trip.
Tour guide Gerrard from Hotspots was amazing i couldn't have faulted his effort, he was really helpful and knowledgeable. The route was a little odd and wouldn't have considered it part of a coast route. The accommodation was nice but it would have been nice to be able to stay in cheaper accommodation - realizing that if i went with hotspots directly i had more choice rather than staying in guest houses and being split from the rest of the group. It might be worth putting a note when booking that the activities aren't always guaranteed due to many of them being based on good weather, we had two cancelled activities due to rain so that was frustrating.
