What people are saying about Stellenbosch

This tour was amazing and absolutely worth the price! Our guide, Paul, was amazing and balanced the tour with information about the places we were visiting and fun. The accommodations for both nights exceeded our expectations, as well as all of the activities. Paul was extremely attentive to our needs on the trip and made the long car rides were enjoyable. Every activity was enjoyable and there were always alternate activities during the optional activities. If you are looking for a packed weekend trip so that you can see some of the garden route, encounter a lot of animals, and have many adventures, this tour is for you!

Absolutely amazing!!! Exceeded every expectation I had for this trip. I don’t want to spoil too much but I’m a student studying abroad here from the US and I couldn’t recommend this trip more. Paul was our tour guide and if you’re lucky enough to get him, your trip will be even better!
