We were collected on time from the port and did the half day city tour with Alex who was a mine of information. He had a very open mind and talked freely about the problems and positive aspects of life. Unfortunately, my wife was unwell but he returned her to the ship without fuss and we continued the tour visiting all the scheduled itinerary and more. I was then returned to the ship in good time. It was a real pleasure to travel with Alex

We booked a 5 day tour from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town along the Garden Route with Uzmanti. We loved the tour. We stayed at lovely properties in various locations along the route and really enjoyed the experiences especially in the smaller B&B locations. Our driver was fun, flexible and very helpful. Lyn and Tanielle who worked the arrangements for us were great to deal with and it was lovely to meet Tanielle when we first started our tour in Port Elizabeth, I would highly recommend this small local tour company for booking garden route tours or shore excursions while visiting SA on cruises. They also set up some excellent tours for us in Johannesburg. I will certainly utilize their services again if we return to South Africa.

Wonderful!!!

Flexible, customizable, and comfortable.

Guide was knowledgeable, supportive, and easy to be with. Took care of all logistics, which allowed us to fully relax and take in our experiences without worrying about logistics. Booked us amazing accommodations, had great restaurant recommendations locally, and was able to incorporate all our desired highlights and some unexpected treats along the way! Highly recommend Umzantsi.

Tldr: book this trip already!!🤩

I would 100% recommend this experience. We did our 3 day garden route tour from CPT to Port Elizabeth. Everything about my experience with Umzantsi was great.

The trip was arranged on short notice and they were able to organize and deliver the most memorable experience ever. The communication and the logistics by Umzantsi were very well done.

Peter Haller, our Tour guide was awesome. He knows a lot about the landscape as well as both the current and historical information about the towns/places along the route. It was just so much fun having him as our tour guide and getting all the interesting information from him. He made sure that we saw and experienced all the amazing places along the way. It is really a very rewarding and memorable tour.

What a stunning time with a wonderdul guide. Port Elizabeth is beautiful and Umzansti really have alot of knowledge of the history and some really lovely spots from restaurants, to penguin sanctuary, Addo Elephant Park where we saw close up elephants and zebras and some other wonderdul wild life, to the beautiful beaches fit for beautiful sunsets. Highly recommended.

A well organized tour though a higher car ( 4WD ) would have been better for seeing the game. Nice Driver/guide who did a very good job.

Dear Gunther Thank you for the review. Thrilled that you saw lots of our elephants. They have been good to the tourists and coming out in the hundreds to the waterholes to socialise and play which is wonderful to sit and watch. I tried desperately to get a SUV for you but there were none available unfortunately been peak season and to hire a 7 seater for 2 people just was not cost effective. Apologies about that. Thanks and go well. Lyn

Very good tour. Lyn picked us up promptly right at the ship and drove us around PE, including a couple of special stops we asked for. Unfortunately, most things were closed on Sunday. Then her husband drove us out to the townships, which was very interesting. Well organized!

Dear Richard Thank you for the review. Yes we decided to do the City and Township Heritage Tour in this way as I specialise in the city heritage and Peter has done more township heritage tours than I have so you really did get the best of both. Wishing you all the best Thanking You Lyn

Dear Jim and Kim Well we did have a couple of hitches which were ironed out and all was well in the end. I am thrilled that you both had a fabulous African Dream Tour with a wedding thrown in. We certainly hope that you "Realised your African Dream". Wishing you everything of the best for the future and thanks for the review. Do go well Thanks Lyn
