    Our tour guide Gerhard Pretorius gave us lots of interesting information about the areas we travelled through. He was very carefully planning our days, arranging restaurant visits, tour activities and re-confirming accommodation. He kept everyone well informed about the schedule. Our group was getting along very well with each other so all of us had dinner together with the tour guide every night. The restaurants proposed by the tour guide were all excellent and very special. Most likely, someone travelling individually on the Garden Route would not find these nice places. Since this was a combination of Garden Route and Wine Tour, we changed bus and tour guide in Stellenbosch. Our new tour guide Moudi and the new group were also very pleasant and again we all had a good time having dinner together. All the activities were exactly as advertised and we enjoyed them very much.

What people are saying about Eastern Cape

The tour really helps you to make the most out of your time if you have about at least a week in South Africa and are starting your journey in Cape Town. Our guide Christine was simply the best, telling us all details about every single thing during the whole tour and always caring to accommodate everyone's specific preferences and needs. She helped us in planning our onward trip and was always making sure we got the best pictures at every stop. This trip has a lot of flexibility in terms of accommodation type and optional activities, which makes it a great option for different kinds of travelers. However, it also offers great opportunities for everyone to bond together, like trying local food at special dinners especially prepared for the group. We definitely recommend this tour and Earthstompers, as it is a really professional agency.

This tour is particularly suitable for solo travelers who don't want to rent a car on their own and don't have as much time. In six days, a lot of time on the bus, a tight schedule, a lot of activities and a great guide, you can see the highlights of the Garden Route. And at a great price - the accommodations and the food were incredibly good! The organization pays attention to sustainable tourism and accompanies you in the form of a very competent and local guide. I had a great time!

If you have the time and opportunity, go on this tour! Perfect program, both the activities included and the optional ones. Backpackers hostels had a good standard, their own rooms on them worked great. We were lucky enough to get Cindy, who rarely goes on the tours nowadays, as a guide, she was absolutely outstanding.

To say in in one word „lekker!“. This was an extraordinary trip with a really nice group. Our guide Cindy made it unforgetable. We visited amazing places and met wonderful people. Take the chance to be part of it!!! DOUBLE THUMBS UP!

It was an amazing once in a life time experience. The group was so lovely and we have had fun from the first day. Our Tourguide Christine has made the tour something special. Thanks
