    Our Guide Andrew picked us up at the morning and we had a wonderful trip to the Indian Ocean, where we could luckily see 6 whales (bryde whale, humpback whale) and other marine animals, like seals, penguins and dolphins. The whole time Andrew and the boat crew provided us a lot of information. After this exciting time at the ocean we went up to Addo. We saw so many animals and of course a lot of elephants. This day was so incredible and amazing! So if we come back to SA we will book any of these tours again! Definitely worth it

    Vielen Dank noch einmal, es war ein phantastischer Tag. Wir haben auf Eurer Website gesehen, dass Ihr auch noch andere interessante Touren anbietet. Darauf werden wir bestimmt zurückkommen, wenn wir das nächste Mal nach Südafrika kommen

    Die Eindrücke waren aber echt super. Besonders die Tierreservate waren echt super und haben es uns angetan. Auch der Einstieg mit Euch hat uns sehr gut gefallen und war die beste Entscheidung, die wir treffen konnten. Es hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht, hat uns sehr viel Informationen gegeben, viele Eindrücke, haben viel gesehen.Das Gesamtpaket war einfach super.

    Wir hatten einen perfekten und wunderschönen Tag mit Andrew unserem Guide. Andrew hat uns eine Menge über die Pflanzen und die Tierwelt wie auch über das Land erzählt. Obwohl ich schon einige Male in Afrika unterwegs war konnte ich viel Neues lernen. Wir Können Andrew und Alan Tours nur weiterempfehlen. Von der Planung über die Organisation bis zur Safari war alles super.

    Ein herrlicher Tag mit einer Vielzahl unvergesslicher Eindrücke bei St. Croix und im Addo Elephant Park. Wir haben viele Tiere gesehen und haben viel gelernt. Von der Kontaktaufnahme über Buchung, Abholung und Begleitung alles war perfekt. Dieses Erlebnis kann und muss man uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen LIEBE ANGELIKA, LIEBER ALAN, VIELEN DANK FÜR DIESEN TAG, DEN WIR NIE VERGESSEN UND IMMER GERNE ERINNERN WERDEN. Wenn eine Reise wieder in diese "Ecke" führen sollte, wir melden uns wieder.

    Vorweg möchte ich sagen, dass Andew der beste Tourguide überhaupt ist und wir ihn wirklich toll fanden. Leider hat es mit der Bootstour nicht geklappt, weil das Wetter nicht geeignet war. Wir haben im Vorfeld eine E-Mail erhalten mit dem Hinweis , dass es ausfallen kann. Am Tag der Tour haben wir unser Geld für die Bootstour sofort zu Beginn wieder bekommen- super! Richtig nett. Dann startete die Tour zum Addo Park. Andrew hat uns alles bis ins Detail erklärt. Über Port Elizabeth, den Park, die Tiere und die Geschichte. Es war wirklich einfach nur klasse. Andrew weiß bestens über alles Bescheid und man fühlt sich sofort wohl bei ihm. Liebe Grüße an Andrew, Go Bokke!

    We’ve spent 2.5 days in a private tour with our guide Andrew of Alan Tours and we can highly recommend it – it was just amazing! After having a half day boat trip where we’ve seen dolphins, penguins and seals we’ve spent 1 day at Addo Elephant National Park. Andrew showed us at any time that our experiences & perceptions are very important and so we’ve seen so many animals very close & in special moments (dozens of elephants & lions directly next to our vehicle, an eating hyena, zebras etc etc)

    We have travelled extensively throughout the world, often taking similar tours, but I have to say, yesterday was probably the best ever tour we have ever taken.

    Das unvergessliche Erlebnis mit euch während der Safari wird so immer in Erinnerung bleiben. Es hat sehr viel Spass gemacht und wir haben es als sehr lehrreich empfunden.

    Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, mit Andrew (unserem Giude) und Angelika einen ganzen Tag im Addo-Park zu verbringen. Wir haben eine Fülle von Tieren gesehen, von Zebras über Antilopen, Schildkröten, Warzenschweinen, ganz vielen Elefanten, Schakalen mit ihren Jungen bis zu einer Gruppe von Löwen. Andrew hat ein sehr umfangreiches Wissen über die verschiedensten Tiere und wir konnten sehr viel von ihm lernen.

    Unser Tag im Addo war super ;-) Malcolm war ein toller Guide. Wir haben wirklich viele Tiere gesehen. Die Full day tour war auf jeden Fall eine gute Empfehlung, wir werden das als einzigartiges Erlebnis immer in Erinnerung bewahren. Danke Dir für die Tips und orga. Auch mit dem kingfisher guesthouse, wir fühlen uns sehr wohl hier.

    Words fail me! Andrew is an amazing ambassador for Alan Tours. We had a fabulous day and will, on our return to the UK, write a full review. I can and will unreservedly recommend Alan Tours. Thanks for playing your part. Great customer service is so important. Well done.
  • m_img_41627183.jpg More John. 6 September 2019
    Fantastic from start to finish. Alan is a wonderful guide, full of great information about all of the animals encountered throughout the day on top of great local insights. The trip itself felt well planned, not rushed, and flowed pleasantly from start to finish.

    I’m still at awe from my previous visit in Port Elizabeth, seeing most of the Big 7 and more! We were able to see Humpback whales, Dolphins, Penguins, Ostriches, Zebras, Buffaloes, Kudu, Eland, Bushbuck, Duiker, Warthogs, Vervet Monkeys & a dose of Elephant sightings.
  • m_img_568696.jpg More Carsten. 6 August 2019
    Wir hatten eine Ganztagestour im Addo. Unser Guide Andrew war Mega. Er hat alles erklärt und war mega Freundlich. Würden wir sofort wieder machen.
  • m_img_451690.jpg More Leslie.4 August 2019
    I only had the weekend to spend roaming around Port Elizabeth and I am super happy to have chosen to book Alan Tours! They have truly made my first visit to South Africa memorable as Andrew (guide) came to fetch me on time from my hotel at 8am. He navigated along the sea coast showing fabulous sites including the Nelson Mandela University, Plettenberg Bay and small towns until we reached the Wild Flower Reserve ......
  • m_img_3514r46.jpg More Riel. 16 July 2019
    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. Thanks you!
  • m_img_3361g37.jpg 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.
  • m_img_437336.jpg 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.
  • img_2922c.jpg 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.
  • m_img_274825.jpg 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.
  • m_img_180551.jpg 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.
  • m_img_388022.jpg 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
  • m_img_958633.jpg 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,
  • m_a_189.jpg 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.
  • m_img_349013.jpg 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.
  • m_img_374529.jpg 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.
  • m_img_871642.jpg 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.
  • m_img_371836.jpg 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

    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.

    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.
  • m_dscn522872.jpg 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. Unvergessliche Eindrücke…
  • m_s_655.jpg 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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
  • m_img_971027.jpg 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.
