What our guests say
I can highly recommend Alan Tours. We took a custom tour from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town in February 2020, and with Alan's advice tailored the activities and route to our interests.
We spent the day with Andrew - who was the best tour guide I’ve had in over 80 countries of travel. His knowledge, expertise, professionalism, and wicked sense of humour made the day an absolutely fantastic experience. Alternately laughing til our stomachs hurt from his stories, and then learning from the rich depths of his understanding of the flora, fauna, and local culture, my husband and I had a great time.
To say that Alan is knowledgeable about wildlife is an understatement.
He's a walking encyclopaedia and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Alan has a respect and passion for nature which is infectious and we only wish we had more time to spend with him.
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 encyclopaedia of everything in nature. 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
My husband and I cannot fault this company. From the initial booking to the actual tours we were very impressed. Alan himself is a joy to be with. A font of knowledge, experience and wisdom and yet at the same time highly entertaining. We highly recommend this Company.
Alan's knowledge and sharp eye just blew my mind. He pointed out things that the rest of us would have missed and explained everything there was to know from plants and flowers to the inner workings of a termite mound.
His knowledge didn't stop with the fauna and flora as he explained the rock paintings in detail.
If you are looking for a great field guide to take you out on tour and you choose Alan, you are in for a treat.
