Knysna was a great town that we regret not spending more time in, but while we were there we thoroughly enjoyed our oyster tour. It was just the two of us on the boat and we went out to the heads while our guide explained oyster cultivation while providing good oysters and great wine. If you've got an hour to... More

When we got back, we were in absolute AWE. As a bottle of champagne were awaiting us with a note congratulating us on our... More

We went out for the sunset tour and while it was nice to be on a boat for a bit, we didn't really get much else out of it. We didn't learn anything at all about oysters or the oyster business in South Africa. Based on our experience, this definitely wasn't worth the money for a few oysters and a... More

Hi there, We are sorry that you did not enjoy your sunset cruise with us. It may also be a case of cross-communication. Although our TripAdvisor activity is listed as the Oyster Tour (something we are trying to work out), the cruise you joined us on was the Sunset Cruise, which is not the same activity as the Oyster Tour....

Our sunset cruise around the lagoon in Knysna was one we will remember forever. The family that run this are simply gorgeous and were very knowledgable about the area and what we were looking at. The oysters and the wine they provided were delicious and the whole experience was relaxing and enjoying. You have to see Knysna from this view... More

We did the sunset cruise on a beautiful day. It was very relaxing with wine and oysters provided to ensure it was so. The family who run the cruise were very hospitable and ensured that we were well looked after.

My wife and I did the sunset cruise and it was beautiful. The fresh oysters and wine were fantastic and the little fun facts we found very entertaining. I wouldn't recommend this for children but something romantic for couples, definitely.
