Percy took us to see the penguins at Betty’s Bay, followed by a wine tour in the afternoon . We had a fabulous time and Percy was brilliant- very knowledgeable ( especially the wine ) and accommodating. Definitely recommend!

We chose Percy Tours to handle transportation for all our wedding guests to and from our wedding venue in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The level of service provided by Percy Tours was nothing short of exceptional, leaving us thoroughly impressed. I recommend Percy Tours for any transfer or transportation needs, as their efficiency greatly contributed to the seamless experience.

We were a little too late to see the whales but Percy our guide was amazing. Such a laugh and full of stories and knowledge about the area. He drove us to the beach, along the cliff top path, to a nature reserve and all throughout the town. We had so much fun and learnt a lot too. Thank you for making our morning so brilliant.

We spent an absolutely wonderful morning with Percy. I had prepared myself not to see anything but we saw our first whale within a few minutes. We also went to the whale museum which was great and we learnt so much information which made the whale spotting even better. The cliff top was an exhilarating place for whale watching and so beautiful in its own right. Percy’s enthusiasm was infectious and he is extremely knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend going on this trip. Thanks so much Percy. This has been a highlight of our trip.

Everything that Percy and Tanya arranged for us was done promptly, professionally and with great care and attention to our specific requests. This included whale watching on a helicopter flight and the following day on a boat trip and the next day a complete tour of the Hermanus area and land based whale watching. Tanya was in touch throughout the year leading up to our holiday and all the time whilst we were in Hermanus due to the tricky weather conditions affecting the area. I would highly recommend Percy Tours to anyone seeking a great experience in Hermanus and the region. Percy’s knowledge is immense and he tells you about the whales, the history of Hermanus and the local wineries, in an amusing and informative way. We had great fun during our time with Percy Tours.

Percy organised a whale watching trip and a township tour for our family. Both the tours were excellent. We were very fortunate with the weather for the whale watching and saw loads of whales and the township tour with Willy was an experience we will not forget. However what stands out with Percy is the service he gives beyond the tours he is selling. Communication is excellent and he was happy to advise on all aspects of our trip beyond what he was booking for us - restaurants for lunch , driving routes, day trips .... If we had more time, we would definitely have booked more with him. Highly recommend. Thank you Percy

I never made the tour, but loved the proactivity of Percy in advising us that the pre-paid tour would probably not happen due to weather conditions and providing us with a full refund. He could have just told us nothing, picked us up, and blamed the weather (it was 50/50 chance). Still, he proactively contacted us and gave us his honest opinion, even though it was not the best financial option for him. Tourism is about leaving people happy and ensuring their time is spent the best possible way. Percy definitely made that for us.

We were unable to do the boat trip we had booked due to the weather.

We met Dave at the whale museum & he took us in his truck to some amazing spots along the bay to see the whales. As a result we not only saw the animals but also some of the beautiful coastline!

We thought we got some really great sightings but Dave was disappointed as he said the weather was hampering our trip & they usually come much closer! We were very happy with what we saw so on a good day it must be breathtaking.

Dave is a really great person with lots of knowledge, not only about the whales & the area but he also gave us some really great tips for the other places along the garden route that we were visiting. Thanks Dave & thanks Percy tours.
