    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!

    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.

    .....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....

    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!

    ...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.

    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!

    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!

    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.
  • m_img_7699_copy..jpg More Florian und Julia. 13.09.2014
    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 ;)
  • m_dscf9645yz.jpg More Bjoern Greber. 15.08.2014
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
