    Wir sind noch immer beim Sortieren und Einordnen, die Gefühle und die Freude über das Erlebte schwingen nach. Wir hatten wirklich wunderbare Erlebnisse während dieser zwei Wochen und natürlich die Tour mit Euch, ein emotionaler Höhepunkt !

    Alan ... thanks for the most memorable day out at Addo. Your knowledge was a show of commitment to a love of nature and wildlife. My experience will not be forgotten.

    Bereits im Vorfeld unserer Reise haben wir einen Tagesausflug zum Addo Elephant National Park mit anschließendem Elefantenreiten bei Elephant Back Safaris über Alan Tours gebucht. Wir erhielten sehr viele Informationen vorab und wurden detailliert über den Tagesablauf informiert, was für ein Service! ...... Man merkte, dass es Alan mit uns genau so viel Spaß machte wie uns mit ihm und dass die Tiere und die Landschaft ihn nach wie vor begeistern. Aufgrund seiner Leidenschaft war es wohl auch die mit Abstand beste geführte Tour unseres dreiwöchigen Aufenthalts in Südafrika (und wir hatten sehr viele schöne Momente während unserer Reise).

    Alan has A LOT of experiences as à Guide in South Africa. He knows the Addo wild Life very well, which is good for travellers like us. We have booked a full day tour ta Addo. We were only the two of us with Alan, in a 4x4 jeep. We have asked thousands of questions, concerning the South African culture, wild life, habits, etc. Alan was pleased To answer To all of them! For us, it was lot more than just a bush day tour !!

    Many thanks for the brilliant day out at the Addo natl park yesterday. I greatly enjoyed and appreciated your expertise in guiding me through all the wonderful soil, plants and animals, from termites and turtles to the bigger beasts, zebras, buffalos, lions and elephants.. as well as our more philosophical discussions on ecosystems, habitats and diasporas of our global village.

    Welches Vergnügen, mit euch beiden auf Tour gegangen zu sein und euch kennenzulernen. Ihr habt mir wirklich einen tollen Tag beschert und ich bin immer noch ganz beseelt von den Elefanten. Meinem Liebsten habe ich so den Mund wässrig gemacht, dass es bestimmt nicht lange dauern wird, bis wir (dann zusammen) eine neue Tour bei euch buchen. Es gibt ja noch so viel zu sehen in Südafrika. Meine Elefantenvideos hat übrigens jetzt jeder aus meinem Umfeld anschauen müssen - ob er/sie wollte oder nicht ;)

    Wir konnten wirklich viele schöne Eindrücke von Südafrika und im speziellen von Port Elizabeth sammeln. Die Stadt-Tour war wirklich sehr interessant und Informativ und die „Big 7“ Tour mit dem Glück mehrere Wale zu sehen war einfach überragend. Macht weiter so und vielleicht sieht man sich ja mal wieder.

    I had a fab day with Alan at Addo Elephant Park. His genuine love for the wildlife and incredible knowledge (he was able to answer all of my questions, and I asked a lot of questions) made for an inspiring day in a beautiful part of the world. Well worth it!
  • m_img_4241_copyp.jpg More Ward Wilson. 23.06.2014
    Just a quick note to say thank you for a couple of great days in Port Elizabeth. We all enjoyed your good company, your knowledge and expert service! The Garden Route Tour was certainly made more interesting by the wild wind and rain! The history you described about the area and Port Elizabeth was very interesting
  • m_img_3941l.jpg More Alicia Jauffret. 7 and 8 June 2014
    I booked two tours with Alan. The first a costal tour of Cape Recife and Woody Cape Dune fields absolutely blew me away. Alan's knowledge of the area is superior to any other and he was very enthusiastic and entertaining. I was impressed at the speed at which emailed were replied to as I booked very last minute. Also perfect for solo travellers as unlike other companies Alan was prepared to take me out on my own ......

    Just wanted to say a big thanks again for such a great day in Addo. It was truly amazing. And your knowledge of the park and animals made the whole day even better. I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is going to South Africa. I also shared a link on Facebook of the photos from your site.
  • dsc_0231.jpg More Siddharth Shah 18.05.2014
    We booked a half day tour with Alan to Kragga Kamma. We were absolutely amazed at Alan's knowledge and friendly nature. He made it truly memorable for us...he stopped the car a few times along the way to help us capture some breath taking views and the icing on the cake was when he took us to St. Georges Park ! Everyone going to Port Elizabeth, and looking for guided tours -- Alan's your man !

    Alan and Angelika, ... we wish to thank you for such a special day. From our first email contact to you we felt total confidence with our booking. We appreciated your prompt, efficient and very personal attention to our enquiry. You were at Aurora with a warm greeting and from the start of the day, to the end of day, we simply relaxed and let the day ahead unfold. We were captivated with all that we saw in the Addo Elephant Park, - it truly surpassed our expectations.

    I had not previously met Alan but he immediately bonded with everyone in our party. He was knowledgeable, interesting, low key and most of all passionate about what he did. His love of nature, plants, birds, insects and land animals made us excited. We were awed with his knowledge about so many interesting subjects including the history of the area.
  • m_dscn0421z..jpg More Pamela Redman and Maureen Vitler. February 2014
    ...We had such a wonderful day on 28th January. Right from the start of the day Alan made it a trip to remember. Lots of thought had obviously gone into the planning. We shall forever remember the fantastic views and of course the close encounters with the animals....
  • dscf7924.jpg More Viola Grund-Bodenschatz. February 2014
    ...Am Krügerpark hatten wir auch eine sehr schöne Zeit, aber die Tour mit euch war auf alle Fälle ein Highlight unseres Urlaubs. Auf keiner anderen Safari, haben wir so viele verschiedene Tiere gesehen und hatten so nette, vor allem kompetente Begleitung wie mit Euch......

    We spent 2 excellent days with Alan during our recent Christmas holiday to Port Alfred, the first at Addo Elephant Park and the second at Schotia Private Game reserve. Alan collected us from our house and we had a full day driving around Addo. The homemade biscuits he bought along for our coffee break were delicious!!! Alan certainly knows his stuff and was very knowledegable about all of the animals we encountered at Addo
  • m_dscn0008q...jpg More Joelle Kolich and family. January 2014
    He was fantastic - quick to answer all of my emails during the planning (& there were a lot of emails). On site, he came to meet us at our house in Port Alfred - he was on time, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, patient (especially with the children), the vehicles were clean & in good shape...& the homemade biscuits were delicious! The 2 days with Alan were the highlights of our stay & I would strongly recommend his services for anyone wanting a great tour guide.

    As we enjoyed our 2009 visit with Alan so much we arranged 2 days this year. Again his excellent company, knowledge of all animals, birds, plants etc makes a day out memorable and left us with wonderful memories. He even found us lions this year! plus all our favorites - baby elephants, kudus, meerkats. We shall have to try and return soon. Many, many thanks Alan.

    On top of that, I have to say that we all had an instant "click" with you from the first moment, so the atmosphere was fun,..... I feel that we has been privileged to experience all of that with you, enjoy your wealth of knowledge, and your "knowing how" way of finding all this amazing animals in the wild. It was a breath taking experience!

    In Alan Fogarty we could not have asked for a more informed and personable guide on our tour of Port Elizabeth South Africa. His knowledge of the history and development of his beautiful city is encyclopedic.

If you could pass our thanks on to him again, that would be greatly appreciated. So, thanks for making our trip such a good one; hope to get the opportunity to do it again some time.

    We thank you so much for the days we could spend accompanied by both of you in Addo Elephant National Park , in its different sections. (Main camp, Kabouga, Darlington Lake, dunes on the coast of Indian Ocean. We spent beautiful 4, 5 days, we enjoyed the tour into the wild bushes as much as we enjoyed your accompany on the game drives. We never forget these holidays in the fascinating South Africa.

  • m_jar_183.jpg More Klara Pichova Dudkova. February 2013
    I have studied all offers I received in previous few days. Together with my mum, we have decided for taking your offer from below described reasons even though your offer is from the financial point of view the highest - offer itself which I find very nice, full of interesting activities - your and Angelika ' s positive and pro client oriented attitude towards us, regular communication and letting me know what you do, why and what are the next steps - you replied on my demand as the first one - you accommodated the program into my resp. mum's needs

    We indeed had the most wonderful time with Alan in Addo. Everybody of our group is still overwhelmed with the impressions and we are still talking a lot about the animals seen (especially of course the close up on the lions).
  • m_260.jpg More Tina and George Lovell. December 2012
    Alan, thank you so much for a memorable day at Addo. If you recall I told you we had located your name and company in a travel book. It was the Frommer's travel guide which I can confirm as after returning to Cape Town we met a couple from the US who happened to have a copy of the book.
  • m_dsc_92.jpg More Nina Toettermann. October 2012
    The highlight on our trip was going on the safari with Alan though. What a great day we had!! John and I were going to e-mail you to thank you both for everything you did for us. Alan was such a great guide and the whole booking experience with you was such a pleasure. We'll be recommending you guys to everyone we know who's going to Africa. We're also planning to write about our experience on Tripadvisor.
