Seven of us booked Gecko Tours for our two week trip to SA. We all had the most amazing holiday ever thanks to Eugene who was our tour guide and driver. He went above and beyond for us and we will never forget him. We left SA with wonderful memories and a desire to someday return. Thank you Sharon for all your help in creating such an exciting itinerary for us. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

Eugene was the perfect ambassador for South Africa. He offered to wait for us to drive us about two blocks down the pier after our boat cruise was done, and was fine to do that even if it was waiting an hour and a half. We didn’t ask him to do that, as it was very very close for us to walk. He also adjusted our trip to accommodate the late arrival of our plane and the weather. Then he worked with the company to make up for the activities we didn’t do the day before. Not his fault! Completely out of anyones control and the Gecko company did their best to make this trip work! Eigegne’s knowledge of the area history, culture, languages, and I even some local stories areas educational and entertaining. He was patient, he was kind, and very helpful. I would absolutely recommend this group to anyone coming to this part of the world, and I think Eugene for being a part of our memorable trip.

Had a private tour along the Garden Route with Cornelius. Enjoyed lots of different activities and sights. Everything went like clockwork and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation was superb, mainly in top of the range guesthouses (better than most hotels) and views from the rooms were magnificent. Meerkat watching at dawn will be an abiding memory.
