Tripadvisor review 12 October 2016


“Highly recommended”


We did a full day trip to Port Elizabeth with Alan Tours during our stay at Shamwari game reserve.

Alan and Luke drove the minibuses for the group and were friendly and very knowledgeable guides. We were taken to a site overlooking the harbour and given an interesting introduction to the history of the area, then visited Fort Fredrick, the cultural centre, Mandela park, St George’s Park cricket ground, the lighthouse and Cape Recife dunes, SAMREC bird rescue / rehabilitation centre, and finally drove through the Donkin reserve. At each point we were given short talks which were informative and interesting.

Chilled, bottled water was freely available and we stopped at a nice restaurant for lunch. The minibuses were clean and comfortable.

If you’re looking for any sort of trip while you’re in this area, then give them a ring as they are happy to put bespoke trips to suit your needs.
