I would wholeheartedly recommend Alan Tours to anyone looking for a professional and truly knowledgeable guide. Alan's knowledge of the wildlife was especially informative, because this was my first visit to Africa.
More John. 26 May 2018
Both Alan and Andrew are very passionate about their job and were more than happy to answer any questions we asked. We had indeed enjoyed a fantastic day and most of it was down to Alan Tours. I can honestly say that if anyone is thinking of the day experience at Addo then Alan's tour company is the one to go with.
More Willem. 25 May 2018
Thank you for the link and the photos. We had a great time, Tiina loved it to bits!!!!!!
More Lander. 25 May 2018
To be honest we couldn’t have had a better tourguide. Andrew could answer on every question we shot at him and stopped when someone shouted when we saw something. A great guide to have. The experience was one to remember! I would strongly recomment someone that experienced and adventures as him!! As WE strongly recomment Andrew and Addo park to everyone who would visit SouthAfrica or a national park in that mather.
More Garth. 14 May 2018
Iain and Rachel came home with great reports and photos to document the fun and animal adventures they had with Alan.
From start to finish I was very pleased with your responsiveness and effective communication throughout the booking process. Bottom line is that I am sure we all will recommend Alan Tours to any friends or relations who plan to visit Africa.
Iain and Rachel said the would love to see Kruger with Alan sometime in the future.
More Carol. 13 May 2018
I feel awful now as I intended writing immediately on my return to thank Alan for the amazing tour - we enjoyed it thoroughly and he was absolutely amazing. But, one gets home to a backlog and the normal routine and before long, its pushed right out of the way. I know I would have remembered the next time I plan a PE visit - sorry.
Sending you both best regards and look forward to the next trip.
More Amira. 7 May 2018
Ich schwelge immer noch in Erinnerungen und bin immer wieder davon begeistert wie super es mit euch alles ablief.
Ihr seid ein traumhaftes Team, mit dem Ich liebend gerne nochmal auf Tour gehen würde. Ein großes Lob geht an Alan und Malcom die die Reise unvergesslich gemacht haben. Immer ein Lächeln im Gesicht und stets einen Witzigen Spruch auf den Lippen
More Ina. 18 April 2018
Die Elefanten haben mich am meisten beeindruckt! Habt vielen Dank für den schönen, unvergesslichen Tag! Ganz liebe Grüße von uns 4 und falls wir mal wieder in der Gegend sind werden wir uns melden und auch unseren Freunden weiterempfehlen!
More Tina, Pamela, Kevin. 13 April 2018
It was a totally unforgettable day-magical. Alan is so knowledgable and gave us history & insights along the way.
We had a fabulous day in the Addo Park spotting buffalo, kudu, zebra, elephants in abundance & even lions. Very exciting!
The drive through the mountain pass to the elephant ride in the afternoon was also an adventure in itself. Spending time with these gentle giants was awesome.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day-totally recommended.
More Jana. 4 April 2018
Von der ersten Anfrage bis zum Ende der Tour war alles super organisiert. Alle Fragen zuvor wurden immer schnell und ausführlich von Angelika beantwortet.
Die Tour selbst wurde von Alan und seinem Kollegen aus Namibia geleitet. Es war einfach unglaublich, Alan hat sich unglaublich bemüht, dass wir so viele Tiere wie möglich sehen und man hat sofort gemerkt mit welcher Leidenschaft er dabei ist.
More Kim. 28 March 2018
No, I didn't see any lions on the day of my tour with Alan Tours, despite our little group's chant in an effort to make them appear, but a tremendous day was had nevertheless. The trip to Addo did not take too long and Alan provides informative, yet informal, commentary enroute. Once at Addo, there was a quick comfort break first up and then into the Park to view some amazing animals and scenery.
A scrumptious light lunch at the Park's cafe finished off the morning's adventure nicely and then it was off again in search of more wildlife and those elusive lions. In fact, our search for those lions meant that by the time we left the Park, the sun was setting over it's beautiful landscape with a wonderful gathering of the many animals we had seen that day.
Thanks for such an amazing experience.
More Angela. 25 March 2018
Alan picked us up from our hotel, drove us to the park, and gave us a fantastic tour. He knows the park inside and out and is extremely knowledgeable about all of the animals.
We saw elephants, lions, zebras, and all kinds of animals -- up close and personal!
His van is clean and well-maintained, and we really enjoyed our time with him.
Also, his prices are very reasonable.
I give Alan Tours my highest recommendation.
More Colm. 21 March 2018
Alan is, simply put, a phenomenal tour guide: he deeply and intuitively understands and cares about nature and, in particular, the amazing herbivores and carnivores which call Addo home. We learnt so much from him, got some amazing photos, and had a very close-up experience with many of the animals
More Angela. 19 March 2018
It was a phenomenal tour and I plan to give him a great review on Trip Advisor. The photos are just terrific. Please give my best to Alan.
More Heather. 18 March 2018
Our tour guide,Malcom picked us from our accommodation right on time :-))He is an incredible wealth of knowledge and as my husband has a love for all living creatures,big and small:-))Malcom took the time to stop every time,
my husband or Malcom spotted anything that moved:-)) In closing,we would highly recommend Alan Tours,we spent a most memorable day,that we will never forget!!
The whole experience from booking,the Adventure into the park,the pictures we received that Malcom himself had taken,shortly after our Tour,makes "Alan Tours" stand above and beyond our other Safari experiences!!!
More Alexandra. 17 March 2018
Wir haben den Tag sehr genossen, trotz dem Regen.
Es war schön zu sehen wie sich die Tiere über den Regen freuen. Der Tag war super und sollten wir jemals nochmal nach Südafrika kommen, werden wir auf jedenfall nochmal eine Tour buchen.
More John. 16 March 2018
As for Alan, if Diane and myself would have wished for the perfect guide on Safari then it is him. His passion for his job (although I very much doubt he sees it as work) is staggering. His knowledge, warmth, dedication, eye for detail is exemplary. It was an absolute pleasure to be in his company for the whole day.
A word about Andrew as well, we felt so comfortable to have him with us in the vehicle, it was almost like having a friend coming with us for the day. Just a note to say thank you very much for everything you have done.
Since my first contact with you many months ago to the actual day of the Safari your professionalism and attention to detail has been perfect.
More Menno. 15 March 2018
I had such a great day with Alan today.
Was really the best! If you are looking for a Addo guide; please don’t look any further and book your tot with Alan Tours. His knowledge about the parc, the animals, the wildlife etc is enormous! He is a enthusiastic guide who will go the extra mile. The communication with Angelika (who takes care of the whole back office) is very fast, friendly and smooth.
I definately wish everyone this unforgettable experience. My advise; Don’t go yourself or with another guide.
It was a day I will never forget!
More Markus. 8 March 2018
Ich freue mich immer noch über unseren Tag, der war wirklich unglaublich. Noch mehr wurde er geadelt, da mein Kollege der auch schon im Addo war, bisher nur 2 Elefanten zu gesicht bekommen hat. Trotz Wasserloch 22 usw.
Was wir alles erleben durften ...... einfach Klasse.
More Alicia. 6 March 2018
I would like to thank you for the very informative and enjoyable outing to the lighthouse yesterday afternoon.
The learners and staff gained a great deal of knowledge while having a bit of an adventure.
Thank you for your willingness to accommodate our many requests and for your patience on the tour itself.
You have given us all an experience which we will treasure.
More Heinz-Juergen. 05 March 2018
Von der Anfrage bis zur Durchführung in kleiner Gruppe (4 Personen) war alles Perfekt geplant und es wurde ein herrlicher Tag mit Angelika. Abgesehen von den vielen Elefanten haben wir eine große Anzahl weiterer Tiere gesehen.Es war ein wunderschöner Tag mit Dir im Addopark. Insbesondere die vielen Elefanten haben uns beeindruckt. Z.Zt. sind wir auf der Rückreise nach Deutschland und müssen alle Eindrücke erst einmal verarbeiten.
More Neil. 1 March 2018
What can I say? we had a fantastic day!!
We saw so much in one day it was amazing.
A big thank you to Alan Tours (I can't recommend you enough) and especially to Malcolm.
Such a gentlemen and a fountain of knowledge. Also being the only ones booked on the tour for that day made it seem like our own personal tour.
More Nick. 27 February 2018
Alan met us off the boat and we had a good filling lunch at the yacht club (included), then it was off to Addo, where we stayed until minutes before park closure.
Alan was friendly and informative throughout and took great care to ensure that everyone had a good view and took whatever photos they wanted, repositioning his vehicle as necessary.
Alan clearly has a great knowledge and experience of the animals in the park, as a result of which we were able to experience some extraordinarily close encounters, especially with elephants, without distressing the animals.
More Timo. 26 February 2018
Bitte nochmals ein großes Dankeschön an Alan für die tolle Tour gestern !!!
Haben wir sehr genossen.
More Nic. 22 February 2018
Malcom has been such a lovely tour guide and we’ve enjoyed the trip.
Will definitely be adding our comments to Trip Advisor when we return to the UK.
Thank you for your great service from the time we contacted you via email and including Malcolm’s friendly and informative service.
More Bill. 18 February 2018
Thank you for the photos...they are great.
And thank you for the care and attention, pre and post safari, you have provided us.
Many Many thanks
More Elana. 18 February 2018
We had the most fantastic day – loved it. Malcolm was wonderful !
I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends should they/when they visit South Africa.
Was really a pleasure dealing with you and your company.
More Jonas. 18 February 2018
Vielen Dank für deine top Organisation! :)
Wir hatten viel Spaß gestern und Christo war ein super Guide!
More Patricia. 18 February 2018
From our first contact with Angelika of Alan Tours to our goodby at the pier we felt that we could not have had a better experience. Everything was perfect from our pick up to drop off.
Alan was perhaps the best guide we may have ever been with. All of the city tour stops he planned for us were terrific, his knowledge of the history, culture and current political and economic situations was excellent. His manner of imparting the information was concise and engaging; Alan knows how to tell an interesting story.
More Keith. 17 February 2018
With Alan Tours once booked you just don't have to worry. They will be there as they are an extremely professional organization.
We were fortunate and were picked up by Alan himself and had his van to ourselves. This man is a walking encyclopedia of everything in nature.
Alan explains the various features along the coastline. His knowledge of everything around him is quite extraordinary and he was able to answer every (probably stupid) question we asked!
If you are coming to PE and want a guaranteed excellent tour then Alan Tours are a huge recommendation
More Markus. 16 February 2018
Vielen Dank an euch und speziell dich. Es war absolute Klasse !!
Wir haben es sehr genossen. Wir haben auch sehr viel tagsüber gesehen. Die Infos mit den Löwen usw. waren absolut Klasse.
More Sally. 7 February 2018
Another wonderful day out with Alan, he covers everything from the animals, to bushes flora/butterflies/birds and dung beetles.
Saw many different animals, hundreds of elephants with their babies, wart hogs and babies.
No lions this year but a rhino and my husbands favourite animal, kudus.
More Anke. 3 February 2018
Von der ersten Anfrage bis zur Buchung hat uns Angelika sehr prompt mit ihren freundlichen Mails begleitet.Alan war sehr professionell, mit den anderen Guides in Kontakt und immer darauf bedacht, uns den besten Blick auf die Tiere zu ermöglichen.
Wir haben von ihm viel über die Tiere, die kleinen und großen, ihr Verhalten und über die Bäume und Pflanzen im Addo gelernt. Er kennt sich sehr gut aus und vermittelt eine große Ruhe bei der Beobachtung und seine Liebe zur Natur ist spürbar.Diese Tour kann man nur empfehlen!
More Margriet. 28 January 2018
The whole day was a great success and everything went smoothly. The commentary by Malcolm and Alan on the way was very informative and interesting and gave us further insights on the history and situation in S. Africa. Thank you very much for organizing it and please thank Malcolm and Alan as well for their excellent company and guidance.
More Patti. 27 January 2018
Malcolm was the guide I hoped to have...professional, attentive, knowledgeable and very pleasant to be with. He was intent on giving us the best tour with comments on the animals, answers to all our questions and dedication to finding the animals.
We had a very fortunate day and saw many of the “big five”.
I would highly recommend Alan Tours and especially Malcolm!
More Mary. 26 January 2018
Our cruise ship, Boudicca, was in port for two days, so we booked a tour through Alan Tours. Our guide was Christo, who was excellent.
More Uschi. 20 January 2018
Die Tour mit Euch zu Anfang unseres Urlaubs war ein Highlight und bleibt für uns unvergessen.
Wenn wir wieder in Südafrika sind und eine Tour buchen möchten werden wir uns mit Sicherheit an Euch wenden.Paul sagt gerade „man sieht sich immer 2mal“.
More Elena. 20 January 2018
Alan really knows his business very well-oriented knowledge of local characteristics and main talks to the other guides! of course you can take the car and to come to the park, but I'm sure you will not see lions
More Carol. 18 January 2018
We took the big 7 tour which started with an amazing marine experience, when we were lucky enough to witness a bait ball which attracted hundreds of Gannets, Dolphin and some Bryde whales!
Then on to Addo elephant park where we saw elephant close up as well as families gathering around water holes, lions shortly after a kill, lots of Zebra, Kudo, Bat eared fox and more.
We really enjoyed our stay in the camp listening to the animals during the night, the tour made all the better because of Alans knowledge of the animals and ability to spot them.
More Ron. 15 January 2018
You provided Gill and me with an excellent day’s outing in Addo Elephant Park, then you top it off with a slide show that contains a range of photographs that are excellent in composition, sharpness and colour.
More Leo. 13 January 2018
We both, Eva & Leo, were amazed by this outstanding tour, and we congratulate all staff, and first of all - you and Alan who made this trip so memorable.

More Alessandro. January 2018
I was picked up by Alan at 8:30 a.m.. He made me really enjoy the tour at the park.
He was very professional and helpful, looking for the animals, giving me interesting explanations and doing his best to let me shoot good pictures.
More Mick. 18.12.2017
Alan himself is a very knowledgeable guide who will keep you interested throughout the day,on various subjects about the park. Knowing where to go ,and driving in and around the parks many tracks ,he seemed to find all the animals we needed to see ....
More Priscilla. 1 December 2017
We only returned home three days ago so that accounts for the delay in getting back to you to say what a wonderful guide and excellent company Malcolm was!
Thanks to his extensive experience, knowledge and passion for wild animals, we saw and learned so much in one day. We couldn’t have started our South African trip in better hands.
Do please convey our feedback and thanks to Malcolm.
We will certainly recommend your company to any friends travelling to SA.
More Ralf. 28 November 2017
Although we had a rainy day, it was an amazing tour with many sightings.
It was particularly pleasant that we had a closed vehicle and thus were protected from the bad weather.
Malcom, our guide, was just great. Nice, friendly, with a lot of knowledge about the wildlife and great stories. Overall, a really successful day.
More Anja. 19 November 2017
Alan ist ein sehr warmherziger, lustiger und aufmerksamer Mensch, die Safari im Addo habe ich sehr genossen und richtig viele tolle Eindrücke gesammelt.

We did enjoyed it very much . Thank you for Malcolm who realy had an eye for a lot of wild animals and is very kindly
More Richard. 19 November 2017
All 3 tours were expertly guided by Alan ... were incredibly interesting, primarily because of Alan's vast knowledge of the area and entertaining commentary. I would highly recommend these tours to anyone interested in the scenery, wildlife, culture and history of the Eastern Cape and South Africa in general.
More Yvonne. 12 November 2017
Angefangen von der Buchung, die lieben E-Mails und dann endlich der Ausflug... einfach alles: super.
Wir wurden früh von Angelika und Alan in unserem Hotel abgeholt. Sind dann zum ADDO gefahren und hatten dort einen traumhaften Tag. Vielen Dank das Ihr dazu beigetragen habt das es unser Traumurlaub geworden ist.
