The 9 days we spent with Mr. Werner Lombard and Kontours became one of the biggest highlights of our 2-week trip to South Africa. He is not only a very professional driver (always on time to pick up the group, always driving a clean car and knowing his way to all locations) but also a super qualified and knowledgeable guide. He told us tons of information about the places we visited and gave invaluable advice on points of interest, places to eat, etc. It seems Werner can explain each and every toponym and knows the name of every plant or animal between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town (I am sure his knowledge goes way beyond this region but we only travelled so far together). Thanks to his advice and connections with most of the tour operators along the coast, we were able to change our schedule and go on whale watching and shark diving tours (both very successful!). Besides, he is a great travel companion (you don't expect your average driver/guide to join you on most of activities!), and every ride or activity we did together was fun and enjoyable.
I know you, the reader, might be cautious and hesitate whether you should book Kontours or not -- after all, they don't have that many reviews on tripadvisor yet (I hope this will change soon). I felt the same before booking, but now I am sooo glad I chose them over other companies to do the Garden Route. I would give them 10 stars out of 5 and will definitely go on tour with Kontours again.

We travelled the Garden Route from PA to CT  for 6 days with Werner Lombard, the owner of Kontours as our guide and driver. Werner is the perfect guide you wish for when you travel: smart, knowledgeable, intelligent, well experienced and funny! Werner knows literally every animal and plant that exists in the area, knows everything about the history of SA, and this is what made the difference between just driving, to actually learning about the area.
Werner also helped us with the booking of the activities we have made which had to be changed due to the weather. He knows all the right places to eat,  and all the right people at all the tourist attractions. He was always on time, clean car, smile on his face and very good with our 3 kids ages 17,14 and 7.
Do not hesitate at all - book him and you will have great & meaningful trip! we are positive we will back in SA and definitely do it again with Werner.

We're two families visiting Nature's Valley near Plettenberg Bay from Johannesburg. I booked a transfer with Werner from Port Elizabeth Airport to Nature's Valley and then back a week later.
Werner was on time and ready to assist us with our luggage. His local knowledge about traveling times set us at ease and had us on schedule.
At was a pleasure to be driven to and from the airport in comfort without the added worry of being on time.
I'll recommend Werner to anyone needing a transfer on the Garden Route.

We visited south Africa for 9 days trip and we were with Kontours for 2 days, for transfer from Cape-town to Knysna via En-Garden route along with sight seeing and Outdshorn full day tour also. Our Guide-FRIEND Mr Werner is an amazing person who has knowledge about the country, places to visit and food to eat and try. Even if you are vegetarian he knows the places. In simple words - Want to visit Knysna/Cape town contact them and relax.
Thanks Werner for the memories we made.

We had booked our holiday through M K Holidays after going through some of their earlier reviews. They have arranged it very well and particularly I would like to mention our Knysna-Garden Route Tour (conducted by Kontours), which was the best part of our entire trip. No doubt, Knysna is a very attractive place for tourist but a good guide always gives the finishing touch to a memorable experience. Our guide, 'Werner Lombard', who picked us from the George Airport (on 31.03.2019) and left us at Cape Town after four days (on 03.04.2019) is an extremely knowledgeable, energetic. punctual and reliable guide. He knows everything about everything which makes things easy for first-time visitors. He made sure that we enjoy each and every moment during these four days. The itinerary was well structured and we covered most of the places comfortably. Overall, we are absolutely satisfied and looking forward for our next interaction with Kontours during our next visit to South Africa.

We went to knysna for a family friend's wedding they booked Kontours for us and Werner was our driver for the weekend and on Saturday Bongani took us to the accommodation and he was good too.
Werner showed us the best sites in Knysna told us the best times to visit knysna and the greatest things about knysna.
I'll consider Kontours the next time I need to go to knysna or Cape Town

We have just returned from a two week holiday to the Cape Region. Werner organised all our transfers around Cape Town, Franschhoek, Gansbaai and Knysna and everything went like clockwork. Whilst we were staying near Knysna he also organised a day tour for us, showing us the best of the area. He was great company, very knowledgeable and added greatly to the enjoyment of our holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending Werner if you want transfers or tours organised. Thank you Werner.

Wonderful trip with Kontours: Cape Town and the Garden Route.
Itinerary:
Day One: full day tour of the Cape Peninsula, including a scenic drive along Chapman’s Peak drive, Boulders beach, lunch at Bertha's restaurant, Cape of Good Hope National Park.
Day Two: Table Mountain and Camps Bay.
Day Three: wine lands of the Cape. City of Stellenbosch; Tokara wine tasting, lunch at Dalaire Graff, and a visit to the Eagle Encounters at Spier Farm.
Day Four: travel from Cape Town to Knysna with a stop to visit the Cango Wild Life Ranch, in Oudtshoorn.
Day Five: boat cruise to the Heads on the Knysna lagoon (Featherbed Experience) and an amazing flight with the FlyTime Pararagliding at the Wilderness Beach Hotel.
Day Six: The Knysna Elephant Park and a visit to the TsiTsikamma National Park where we did the "storms river mouth trail".
Through those 6 days we had a wonderful support of Werner Lombard as our guide. He is very knowledgeable about the history, culture and nature of the places we visited. He is also good-tempered, easy going and very professional.
I definitely recommend his services.

We had booked Kontours for our journey on the Garden route from Cape TOwn till Knysna and for a day trip to Outsdhoorn and final drop to Port Elizabeth.

Werner who owns this company personally guided us through this tour. He is an amazing personality and was quite entertaining and friendly through the trip. He was a big reason we loved this part of our leg of the South Africa journey.

I used Kontours to pick me up at George airport, take me to Knysna and then back to the airport a couple of weeks later.
Basil was there to meet me and was great company on the way to Knysna.
On the way back to the airport, Werner drove me and it was also a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
Both were excellent drivers and great people. I will definitely use Kontours again.
