Our group really enjoyed the tour with you. It was an eye opener and the discussions about the history of our country, lighthouses and such like continue around the table at Remos until they locked the place.
More Gideon. 16 July 2019
We are privileged to have spent the day with Alan, with his vast experience and kindness, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The memories will last, and the photos are great to share them.
More Kesi. 11 July 2019
The Big 7 was amazing, such a once in a lifetime experience. My whole family absolutely enjoyed every minute of the day. It is so worth the money.
Tanya and Andrew were fantastic. Tanya was such a great help with the booking process and Andrew was a fabulous tour guide, he really knew his stuff.
More Jake. 24 June 2019
Great tour. Alan was excellent.
We learnt so much about the lighthouse and surrounding area.
Spectacular views from the top of the lighthouse, even got to see humpback whales breaching in the distance.
More Andrea. 24 June 2019
We are grateful to you for arranging a second tour of the lighthouse for us and taking the time to share with us your knowledge of its interesting history and details of its construction and workings.
The participants in our second sea-to-source pilgrimage, again benefitted greatly from your on-site presentation at the Cape Recife Lighthouse, and for our musicologist, in particular, the foghorn holds interesting possibilities for the pilgrimage composition he is hoping to contribute to our end of year exhibition.
More Valerie. 7 June 2019
Courtesy and consideration from Alan, Angelika and Tanya during the booking process and throughout the Cape Recife Tour left a lasting impression after a memorable value for money experience which extended for two hours beyond its typical three hour duration.
Alan’s relaxed informative style made for easy interaction which enhanced the knowledge transfer.
For us the lighthouse tour with its 101 steep steps leading up to the spectacular view was undoubtedly the star attraction however that did not detract from our enjoyment and appreciation of SANCCOB also the Grysbok Nature Reserve, both of which possess unique areas of interest.
The plant life and historical sites in the nature reserve were particularly absorbing.
All in all a definite recommendation.
More Maree. 2 June 2019
We had a wonderful time and wish to let you know that Andrew was the best tour guide.
He made our two tours very enjoyable.
You have a treasure in him and hope he is with you a long time. We will certainly use your services again.
More Tim. 29 May 2019
We definitely enjoyed our tour with Andrew and it was one of the top tours on our world cruise.
Thank Andrew for a wonderful time.
More Suzanne. 29 May 2019
Thank you for sending the photos. They bring back wonderful memories of the day.
We enjoyed the tour so much, and will recommend your tour company to others, including our travel agent.
More Peter and Linda. 27 May 2019
We were so lucky to have chosen Alan as our guide, as his knowledge of the ecology and wildlife at Addo was second to none.
Good luck with your business.
More Mikael. 24 May 2019
We had a really pleasant time and all of us enjoyed the tour and Andrews passionate guide of the park!

Thanks also to Alan Tours and our guide, Malcolm, for what my friends and I agreed was one of the best touring days of our four-month trip.
It couldn’t have been better or happier!
More Richard. 13 May 2019
Thank you so much for the photos recently received.
It was nice to be reminded of the two special days we spent with Alan.
We have lots of photos detailing our amazing trip to South Africa and I will add your great enclosures to them.
All the best for your future tours,
More Duncan. 11 May 2019
Shene was really helpful at pointing out animals with some background on the park.
We’re nearly back home now with one last hop up to Edinburgh.
So glad we chose Alantours for our day trip and would be very happy to recommend.
More Marit. 11 May 2019
We had a wonderful day-safari with Andrew as our guide in the park.
We saw a lot of animals om close hold.
Andrews knowledge about the animals made the day to a great experience.
More Katherine and Francesco. 10 May 2019
This is our fifth visit to South Africa and our third return visit to Port Elizabeth.
On both previous visits we booked excursions with Alan Tours and naturally we booked with them again on this occasion.
They are the best , simply put.
More Janelle. 9 May 2019
Graeme was wonderful. PIcked us up at the cruise dock shortly after the ship arrived.
His van was roomy and the windows were clean, offering great views.
Graeme was very personable and extremely knowledgeable.
Wonderful views of elephants, cape buffalo, kudu, and more.
Got us back to the dock in plenty of time before ship departure.
If you have limited time in Port Elizabeth, Alan Tours and guide Graeme offer a great experience at Addo Park.
More Elsa. 8 May 2019
We were really happy about everything we saw during the ride. Andrew was really knowledgeable about the animals and all the plants around the park so we learned quite a lot. Andrew told us we were not that lucky with the elephant sightings for what is normal for this park but we were completely happy for everything we saw.
We did this tour with our 3 year old daughter and she loved it too.
On the way back he even showed us a bit around the city which was unexpected but we really appreciated it.
We really recommend planning your tours in and around PE with Alan tours
More Maria. 7 May 2019
Ich denke sehr oft an die Reise und ganz besonders an die Safari.
Hab euch schon weiter empfohlen ;)
More Dave. 7 May 2019

Vor allem die Elefanten Babys haben ihnen sehr gefallen.
More Janine. 22 April 2019
Wir hatten eine ganz tolle und unvergessliche Zeit mit euch. Wir hätten es uns nicht besser vorstellen können.
Eure herzliche Art fühlte sich sofort wie „Familie“ an und ihr habt den Tag zu etwas Besonderem gemacht. Luise schmiert heute noch Butterbrote :-)
Wir werden euch auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und sollten wir noch einmal den Weg nach Südafrika finden, werden wir uns auf jeden Fall melden und hoffen, dann vielleicht ein paar mehr Tage mit euch verbringen zu können.
More Henrik. 20 April 2019
Quite last minute we booked the Big 7 tour with Alan tours in Addo Elephant Park and were happy, that they could accommodate us....After lunch we then drove to Addo and there we had the greatest day! We saw so many animals....The perfect day! Would definitevly recommed if you have only 1 day in PE or Addo and want to see much. Didn't feel rushed.
More Stefan. 19 April 2019
Helene hatte Anfang Woche Geburtstag und ich habe ihr ein Fotoalbum von unserer Südafrika Reise geschenkt, wo natürlich auch die tollen Fotos von der Safari mit euch im Addo Elephant Park mitdabei waren.
More Samantha. 14 April 2019
We saw lions, many many elephants, zebras, buffalos, warthogs, ostriches, birds and beetles. Especially beautiful was how close we came to a big elephant family - they crossed the street right in front of us and we followed them for a while. Afterwards Andrew drove us to our Lodge.
The perfect day! Would definitevly recommed if you have only 1 day in PE or Addo and want to see much. Didn't feel rushed.
More Oona. 7 April 2019
Me and my family we had the best tour with Alan that day and it will definitely be something to remember by for the rest of our lives. Alan's expertise and passion towards animals and the job was amazing and we learnt a lot during the day with him. Also, everything was arranged with you with care and the information and details you provided us beforehand was very much appreciated and useful. Thank you very much for everything!
Please convey mine and my family's warmest regards to Alan and to the rest of your team! Keep up the good work and maybe we'll see again when we come back to visit South Africa!
More Amanda. 3 April 2019
It was indeed a memorable day and a lovely birthday for my fiance.
It was so special :-)
More Andrea. 26 March 2019
I would like to extend thanks to you on behalf of the staff and students who were part of the multi-disciplinary group from NMU that participated in the sea-to-source pilgrimage from March 22-24. We are grateful to you for arranging a tour of the lighthouse for us and taking the time to share with us your knowledge of its interesting history and details of its construction and workings.
More Jeff. 23 March 2019
We arranged this tour from our cruise ship with 7 guests and loved it.
We saw a hyena kill of a zebra, 2 brother lions, mongoose, red Hartebeest locking horns, a wonderful lunch included, and large elephant family including many baby elephants.
All well organized with great commentary by guide Shene.
More Thomas. 26 Maerz 2019
Danke erstmal für deine ausführliche und ganz tolle Ausflugsbeschreibung.
Es hört sich alles ganz toll an. Habe selten so eine ausführliche Ausflugsbeschreibung bekommen.
Sehr gerne würden wir dann die Tour bei ihnen buchen
More Robert. 19 March 2019
A lovely way to experience PE and Addo.
Allan has a broad and deep knowledge of both historical interests and the beautiful wildlife of the eastern cape.
More Peter. 15 March 2019
The pick up at the port was organised to coincide with the time of our cruise ship’s arrival and Alan himself was our guide for the day. What a knowledgeable and affable man, he really could not do enough for us. On arrival at the park we passed through an area of scrub where the first ‘wild life encounter’ was a dung beetle spotted by the eagle eyed Alan. I was worried!! Needlessly, Alan then proceeded to wend his way through the park visiting various water holes we saw an amazing variety of wild life, made possible by Alan’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the habitat and habits of the park residents.......and there we were, just in the right spot to see three adolescent lion cubs try their luck with four grumpy old Cape Buffalo to be King of the water hole.
More Jutta. 11 March 2019
zurück in Deutschland möchten wir uns hiermit ganz ganz herzlich für die tolle Safari durch den Addo-Park bedanken. Es war ein toller Tag, hat richtig Spaß gemacht.
Wir sind froh Alan-Tours gebucht zu haben, top. Und als Guide hätten wir keinen besseren kriegen können, Andrew ist absolut klasse.
More Pam. 11 March 2019
An overdue thank you for these pictures.
They bring back great memories. We arrived home a few days ago and are still struggling with having to get our own meals!!!
We will sing your praises to all we know who are heading your way.
More Miriam. 10 March 2019
Barry and I had a great time at Addo.
Some ladies from the Oceania Feb 3, 2020 cruise have been following my daily diary and asked who we used and which guide we had.
I definitely recommended your company.
More Keith. 10 March 2019
My wife and I had a wonderful experience with a tour of Addo Elephant Park booked with Alan Tours.
The positive experience began when I inquired about the tour and received a comprehensive and timely response. This continued with answers to my e-mail questions and additional details leading up to the tour.
Our tour guide Andrew was outstanding. Andrew made the day very special for us. He provided terrific information as we drove from the port to the National Park and this continued throughout the tour. He organized a terrific day for us and new precisely where to go within the park to find a nice range of animals and birds for us to see. His respect for wildlife and for others is very clear.
I highly recommend Alan Tours and look forward to using them again in the future.
More Ruth. 6 March 2019
From pick up to drop off, Andrew was the ultimate guide for us from his knowledge of Africa, the park, the animals through to his great sense of humour.
A superb day not to be missed if you are in Port Elizabeth.
We've already recommended Alans Tours (and Andrew) to fellow travellers.
The day completely surpassed our expectations!
More Maria Isabel. 6 March 2019
It was my first safari and I must say that everything run very well.
The previous contacts for booking with Angelika were very efficient and easy.
The guide, Andrew, explained everything with full knowledge and provided very good assistance during the 12 hours of our tour.
More Debra. 6 March 2019
We went to Addo with Alan Tours from a cruise ship and had quite limited time. But no worries, everything was extremely well planned and ran like clockwork.
Paul was waiting for us at the pier and off we went. He is a super nice guy, very knowledgeable, and non-intrusive. An excellent driver.
When we arrived at the park, he really knew where to look to find animals and we saw far more than other people on the ship (that we talked to when we returned). Got lots of amazing pics and even managed to spot a couple lions (taking a nap in the shade) before our tour ended.
Had a nice, quickly served and tasty lunch in the park and then resumed game viewing. And saw even more (incl. above mentioned lions).
All in all, definitely worth the money.
More Sally. 2 March 2019
You always have a great day as Alan knows this park inside out and can find the animals whatever the weather.
I also love the fact he mentions the birds, trees and flowers.
Provides refreshments and is excellent company.
Whenever we are in Port Elizabeth we make sure we have a day out with him. hopefully we shall be able to return for another visit.
More Karen. 1 March 2019
Alan Tours was terrific.
We were picked up by Alan himself, from the cruise port and taken to Addo Elephant Park after a brief city tour of Port Elizabeth.
What a day! He is a true bushman, an animal whisper.
Alan was professional, attentive and respectful of the environment. His enthusiasm for the animals was evident in everything he did.
The lunch Angelika prepared for us for the day (to meet our specific timelines/goals for the day) was exceptional!
We were very exhilarated by the various animal sightings & cannot recommend Alan Tours enough. An outstanding guide.
More Susanna. 26 February 2019
We had previously arranged a safari package with Alan Tours and it was the very best decision we made.
All the arrangements were made before we arrived and went off without a hitch.
To say that Alan is knowledgeable about wildlife is an understatement. He's a walking encyclopedia and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He knew exactly where to find the animals and spent as much time as we wanted at each site.
Alan has a respect and passion for nature which is infectious and we only wish we had more time to spend with him.
Pam. 25 February 2019
Met by Andrew at Port Elizabeth's dock at 8:am and had a wonderful 11 hours exploring Addo Elephant N.P..
Saw lots of wildlife and learned lots from Andrew, who was so knowledgeable about the indigenous flora and fauna.
The trip included a stop for morning tea and a light restaurant lunch.
The time passed all too quickly.
More Ken. 19. February 2019
Many thanks, we of course have hundreds of photos including several of Malcolm. Can you please pass on our thanks for the enthusiasm and interest he showed during a day when the tempuratures reached 45.5 in his experience near to a record.
Although it was too hot for the Lions we saw every other animal possible thanks to his hard work tracking then down.
He is an outstanding guy and we hope as he gradually retires he maintains his interest in life and wildlife. Many thanks for a very full and facinating day.
More Stefan. 19 February 2019
Our guide Andrew was excellent and told us a lot about the wildlife.
A few days after the safari we event got some pictures which were taken during the day by Andrew.
The booking procedure with Angelika was also very efficient and friendly.
We can highly recommend this company!
More Michelle. 17 February 2019
We had an absolutely wonderful day and truly enjoyed spending the day with Malcolm.
He was a great guide.
More Geoff. 12 February 2019
We were amazed at the variety of different animals in the reserve and how close we were to them. Alan exploded that expectation into something fabulous.
More Eric. 31 January 2019
Wir hatten einen tollen Tag im Addo Elephant National Park.
Unser Tourguide (Andrew) war sehr professionell und sympathisch.
Die Tiere bekommt man in solch einem natürlichen Lebensraum nicht oft und vor allem nicht so nah zu sehen.
Vielen, vielen Dank dafür!
More Carsten. 15 January 2019
Wurden in der Unterkunft abgeholt und den ganzen Tag wurde sich toll um uns gekümmert.
Unser Guide war sehr erfahren und unter anderem mit anderen Guides vernetzt, so dass bei Neuigkeiten wir sofort wußten, wo was passiert ist.
Die anschließende Tour zum Elefantenreiten war einmalig!!
