Excellent guide with good knowledge and passion! Great educator and moves with you at your pase! He also has wider knowledge of the country, nature and relate matters! Experience matters here! Let down by his bad choices of accommodation!

I went on the 4 day backpacking hike through the Groot Winterhoek mountain. I did not know Andreas nor the group and this was my first time backpacking and doing a multi day hike. Andreas is the most patient and positive person I’ve come across, he is so passionate about nature, knowledge about the fynbos and ensured that everyone is comfortable yet had their own space. He walked at the back with me the whole time to make sure I could manage okay and encouraged me along the way. I would definitely recommend Gantouw tours to anyone looking to be immersed in nature and new to the back packing experience!

Visiting the Quaver tree forest in Nieuwoudsville with Andreas Groenewald was one of the best experiences ever! He is so knowledgeable on all the History and Geology around the whole of the area. He went out of his way to show us interesting things. He is an outstanding guide and a walking encyclopedia! It was a privilege having Andreas as a guide. I can highly recommend Andreas.

Our hiking group booked Andreas for our weekend in Franschhoek and just as he was on our Green and Blue mountain hikes, a wealth of information, most patient of guides and carrier of coffee and sweet treats plus photographer of note( attached ones are mine though) . I'm sure whatever your needs in a guide Andreas will deliver. Highly recommend!
