Gary created a wonderful, personalized day trip just for us! We saw a variety of rural and local areas, be sure to bring your camera. I have many great memories, and pictures of wild baboons, ostrich, seals and the wonderful penguin colony at Boulders Beach. He recommended a great restaurant overlooking the water for lunch. His fee is well worth... More

Gary's tour of the Garden Route is fabulous. He is totally flexible and accommodating. We had some ideas of where we wanted to go and he had suggestions which were brilliant. At the last minute we wanted to add in Hermanus for whale watching and it was no problem at all. He arranged excellent accommodation for us for 3 nights... More

Just returned from Gary's 4day/3night tour of South Africa's beautiful Garden Route. Three of us very much enjoyed the convenience of having a driver and guide whose knowledge and experience made the most of the best places to visit from Cape Town all the way down to the Tsitsikamma national park. We were picked up from our hotel and delivered... More

We booked Gary for four days to take us from Cape Town, up into the wine district, around the area generally, and back to Cape Town again. And Gary was amazing: very helpful and considerate, knowledgeable and therefore able to suggest where we should go and what we should see (and drink), and totally flexible. It was a real pleasure...
