    We have had a lot of luck that we have chosen the service of your company. We have had a comfortable car and a great opportunity to be very close to wild animals which were in abundance around us (I suppose Alan noticed that one of the elephants had tried to put his long trunk into the open window of the car – it was really exciting).

    I cannot express enough what a wonderful time we had at Addo and South Africa for that matter. The whole experience was life changing and we cannot wait to return. Alan was so knowledgable about the park, the animals, the birds, the plants…it was such an amazing experience. When we come back we will plan on another tour, this time with our kids and one of the overnight tours you offer.

    I’ve really had a great time with Alan and I also did enjoy his company! He is a gifted man that he can give people that kind of experiences by doing his job!

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! Will surely come back with my family, the little ones would flip! Alan, not enough words to express my gratitude for all your enthusiasm and wealth of information. It is really what made the whole trip soooo fascinating. Your a star! Excellent you two! I am telling everyone how great your trip is. Will also post on trip advisor when I get home.

    What an incredible day it was in Addo. It was a privilege to have spent a day in such a beautiful place and seen some awesome animals including Jessie the lioness. Alan's knowledge and passion for the place and the animals made it a truly mind blowing experience for me.

    Thanks again for the great day. No matter that large whales and sharks were missing the tour itself was really great. St Croix island and Addo - that is a unique combination. Coming back to South Africa is already planned, but will take some time...

    I had a beautiful day with Alan. Eventhough we were bit unlucky in finding sharks and whales in the morning, the time spent in Addo was fabulous. Alan is a fantastic tour guide with six sense! I recommend Alan tour with 5 stars :)

    My partner and I had a brilliant day with Luke today. He was incredibly knowledgable, enthusiastic and easy to get on with. We spent the day at Addo and really enjoyed it. Would really recommend booking your trip with these guys. Do it now!

    I had only a day to spare on this business trip from Australia and I reckon I am the luckiest person to enjoyed Alan's company, knowledge and enthusiasm from dawn to dusk. Today I feel slightly transformed with new eyes for this incredible world we live in.Thanks Alan! Who would have thought a dung beetle could be as interesting as a cheetah or elephant?

    We highly recommend the Big 7 tour. We had the privilege of spending the day with Alan as he guided us on the cruise out to St Croix island taking time to share his extensive knowledge of the marine Eco system of the island, penguins and the bay. After a quick lunch on the dock we were off to Addo national park. Alan was an expert of not only finding amazing game to view in a beautiful natural setting, but also explaining the behaviors of the animals as well as the importance of the vegetation to the survival of the entire system

    Alan's knowledge and sharp eye just blew my mind. He pointed out things that the rest of us would have missed and explained everything there was to know from plants and flowers to the inner workings of a termite mound. He even pointed out that there was a small heard of kudu on the path in front of us. Not because you could see them but because every time we crossed the stream there we tracks on the other side and the soil around it was still wet. His knowledge didn't stop with the fauna and flora as he explained the rock paintings in detail. If you are looking for a great field guide to take you out on tour and you choose Alan, you are in for a treat.
  • m_27_3.jpg More Jan from Norway. 21.05.2015
    My best recommendations! The awsomest tourguide ever! Not only professional. Alan takes care of each tour member as if they were family.
  • m_img_6685ssq.jpg More Stephen Yarr. 23.05.2015
    Fantastic, friendly tour guide with a sixth sense for where the animals will be and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the wildlife! It will change your safari experience entirely! We went on tour with him to Addo
  • m_dscf2866b.jpg More Mara und Marion. 18,05.2015
    Aufgrund eines gestrichenen Fluges konnten wir nicht wie geplant den Addo-Park mit unserer Rundreisegruppe besuchen, sodass der Reiseanbieter nach vielen Absprachen eine private Tour mit Angelika von Alan Tours organisierte... uns hätte nichts Besseres passieren können!
  • m_img_6685ss.jpg More Stephen Yarr, 13.05.2015
    Thanks for a wonderful day, we came back refreshed and deeply satisfied with a true safari experience! We would never have had the confidence to get up so close to the animals, let alone find them! It was all enhanced by being able to see and identify all of the smaller wildlife and your opening up our eyes to understand what we were seeing.
  • m_img_5787..jpg More Margaret and Brian Mcintyre. 30.04.2015
    .....As we had never been on a tour like that we were apprehensive as to what to expect and were completely blown away by the Addo and your knowledge. I am sure that if we had driven around on our own we would not have experience half of what you showed us....
  • img_4985_copy.jpg More Donne. 14 April 2015
    The best part about being part of an 'Alan Tour' is that his knowledge of fauna and flora is makes the experience so much richer and he is also extremely professional. I highly recommend Alan Tours to anyone who is looking for a professional tour guide with the experience to back it!
  • m_img_2736j.jpg More Marilyn Gaus. 24.03.2015
    ...For the evening we booked Best Beaches Sundowner Tour. It was amazing and we highly recommend this to anyone who loves watching the sun go down on the beach and walking on sand dunes. Alan took us along the coast chasing the sunset visiting several beaches places of interest along the coast especially stopping at the Lighthouse which we would never have got to on our own. Truly amazing and unforgettable experience which we would gladly pay to do all over again.

    My husband and I had the incredible experience of spending a day with Alan Fogarty of Alan Tours in Addo Elephant Park. Alan is incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect, the animals, birds, snakes, insects, plants, and the park. His knowledge and familiarity with the park is extraordinary. He is also really easy to be with! We learned so much and had such an incredible time. We saw so many different kinds of animals in their natural habitat. And because Alan has such a great understanding of the the animals and what they are doing he is great at finding them, and then when found knowing if something unusual or special might happen.

    I booked Alan Tours reading the reviews on the web...and I surely did the right thing. Couldn't have asked for a better start for my holidays. From the word go Alan made me feel comfortable...collected right on time from the hotel..we proceeded for the St Crois island tour first...wonderful viewing of dolphins around if they were playing with us...then the penguins...lots of seabirds.Lunch was wonderful and we went off for the Addo Elephant park. Again he took a special effort for all of us..there were three of us...that all of us get a good view of all the animals..we sat for half an hour watching the lions make their was a really wonderful experience and i strongly recommend this to all. Like the commitment and professionalism and the passion of Alan with which he conducts the tour. A big thank you ALAN...keep it up.

    Zunächst möchten wir uns bei Euch bedanken für die schönen Rundfahrten,die Ihr mit uns unternommen habt. Wir werden euch weiter empfehlen, und das mit gutem Gewissen. Ansonsten sind wir wieder gut in Deutschland gelandet. Die nächsten Wochen müssen wir bestimmt unsere Bilder im Bekanntenkreis zeigen und werden auch die Touren mit Euch bestens erwähnen.

    This morning I met Angelika at my hotel do go to Addo Elephant park. I read a bit about it and I had great expectations about this excursion. I must say that it has been way more beautiful than I expected. Angelika is so informative, nice and cool, she makes you feel as you have always been friend. So relaxed and such a beautiful driver….the best!
  • m_img_0762.jpg More Paul Blake. 11.02.2015
    I booked the tour after reviewing the comments on Trip Advisor. If you have a day or even half a day to spare whilst you are in the Port Elizabeth area then take a tour with Alan - you will not be disappointed. Our tour exceeded all expectations mainly due to Alan's passion and knowledge and his commitment to ensure you get the best out of your tour. However the whole experience from enquiry to completion of the tour can only be described as exceptional.

    My very first safari! Complete with a very close encounter! Could not have asked for a better guide or group of people to share it with! Addo Park is mostly elephants, but we were all very lucky to see so many other animals - just no giraffes!
  • m_dscn9107p.jpg More Bob Entwisle. 9.1.2015
    From start to finish the tour exceeded our expectations. Alan has 30 years experience in the 'game' industry and he had no problem answering our numerous questions about the flora, fauna and history of the park and South Africa in general.

    Since the city tour to PE I was impressed with Alan's accuracy, enthusiasm and attentiveness which continued during the 2 visits I made to Addo Elephant National (the Kabouga section is also very interesting), the Kragga Game8, the Sunset Party so close to the city and plenty of animals, the amazing 6 day Garden Route and finally the tours in and around Cape Town. What an incredible professional Alan is, fun to be with, I had really the best holidays ever!

    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.

    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. 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.

    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.
