    It was an amazing and beautiful experience. Our guide Mawande was really accommodating and informative throughout the tour. The stay at the lodge was lovely with such friendly and helpful staff. To top it all the safari was really wonderful.

    Due to bad weather conditions boat trip was cancelled, but we decided to continue the tour trying to watch whales form the coast. Local tour operator refunded the cost of the boat trip. We could not see any whale but our guide Gavin gave us very good times at Hermanus and at Creation Winery. He was a gentleman, and gave my family and be a complete explanation about everything. We also saw penguins even though the colony was closing when we arrived.

    Great experience. Our boat guide and whale enthusiast did a great job. We saw three different types of whales and some seals. Our private guide was professional, provided great conversation, and a little rescue treat for oncoming seasickness. Dress warm.

    Had a great day with Mike as our tour guide. From as soon as I booked the tour, Dave was in touch with information and even rescheduled due to weather conditions on the water. Mike showed up early and drove us to Gansbaai because Hermanus was fully booked up. He stopped at a beautiful winery along the way. The boat tour was fabulous and we saw whales, sharks, penguins and seals. Mike was very accommodating to be sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive and informative along the way. Highly recommend!!

    We had an excellent day with Bosch Travel and Tours. Our driver, Orion, arrived early, explained the day, and was a great host. Prior to our trip, we were contacted through Viator to make sure we understood what was included in our booking. Orion drove us to Hermanus, gave us some history of the area and answered all of our questions. When we got to the dock, it was clear the boat owners knew him and he received a warm greeting. It was agreed that we paid for the whale watching separately, since it is dependent on weather (part of the communication before our trip). The boat company even gave us a discount when they saw our tour guide.

    The ship (yacht) was fantastic and after seeing the other options, we clearly were with the best. We saw all 3 varieties of whales and stayed on the water longer than the other boats.

    It was lunchtime when we finished the Whale watching, and Orion made reservations for us at a local restaurant.
    Our next stop was to see the Penguins, followed by a scenic drive along the coast. He answered all of our questions along the way--even making useful suggestions of things to do on the remaining days in our trip.

    We concluded the day at a gift shop (we requested this!) and he took us to a shop that offered 60% off their prices. We never would have found it without him.

    We highly recommend Orion and Bosch Travel and Tours. I don't usually write reviews, but we thought this deserved one!

    He is wine expert and whale wizard, able to attract dozens of them to perform before you in the bay.

    Amazing experience to see the sharks swim up to you in the cage. We had 3 or 4 sharks swimming at our cage. Unfortunately, it was a bit difficult to see underwater as the water was a bit murky, not to mention COLD. But the guides were great and the wet suits they give do a fairly decent job of keeping you warm. It was a really exciting experience all around

    A team of 8 of us were amazed at this experience. Godfrey and Gareth were the most awesome guides and prepped us so well for the 90min ride. They made sure to take pictures of us while we stopped to take in the breath taking views of the Overberg.
