We finally booked our South Africa experience with Sofie at PG Tops. What a fantastic experience. The brief was very simple - we wanted to experience the sights and scenes of South Africa for 2 weeks, the first period around the Cape Town and coastal area and then move on to a few days safari in Kruger.

Sofie was very professional and attentive and asked us what we liked, what level of comfort we were looking for, what food we enjoyed eating, where we liked to stay, what in particular we would like to see and so on.

Nothing seemed to be an issue and Sofie e mailed us on numerous occasions and even spoke to us on the phone to try to understand our requirements more specifically.

The result was a fantastic vacation staying in sumptuous accommodation, eating some lovely S African food, seeing great sights and having one of the best holidays we have ever had.

Credit should also be heaped upon our guide - Johan. Throughout the Cape leg of the holiday Johan drove us over 2000km. We struck a chord with many common views and hobbies and the places we stopped at were often revised following these conversations.

Vacation consisted of the following:
Day 1 Arrival at CapeTown, tour of table mountain and part of city accommodation More seasons.
Day 2 Penguins at Stormy point. Accommodation More Seasons
Day 3 Robben Island and Peninsula. Accommodation More Seasons
Day 4 Wine tasting in Franshoek, Motor Museum. Accommodation Le Quartier Francais
Day 5 Alloe Fera factory, Ostrich Farm Accommodation De Denne
Day 6 Knysna Featherbed visit. Accommodation Atlantic house
Day 7 Transport museum George, bird sanctuary Tsitsikama. Accommodation The Fernery
Day 8 Addo National Park, Port Elizabeth Accommodation Radisson Blu
Day 9-12 Fly to Kruger for Safari at Lion Sands Private Game reserve

Overall this offered a personalised private tour that was tailored to our requirements for a similar price to a good tour organised in the UK but with around 30 people. That personal touch and ability to modify at a moments notice was priceless and I have no hesitation to recommend the company.

thanks again to Sofie, Johan and Peter at PG Tops

My friend and I were to arrive in Cape Town on a cruise ship around 8 a.m. Our flights home were not until 6 p.m., so we were looking for a tour company that could introduce us to the sights of Cape Town and deliver us to the airport in time. I had spent quite some time in the city previously, but my friend had not. I found PG Tops Travel and Tours on Trip Advisor and made arrangements with Yolanda. Sarina was at the dock 10 minutes early ready to go. I had hoped to take the cable car to Table Mountain, but the fog prevented us from doing that. Sarina substituted Signal Mtn and a visit to Rhodes Monument where we were able to have great views of the city. We visited Hout Bay, walked through the central city, had lunch and shopped at the wharf area. It could not have been more perfect. I highly recommend this company.

If you appreciate the personal service that a private tour provides, then this is the company for you. We did a city tour on the first day and the cape tour on the second day. We were met at the hotel and at the end of the day they helped us move our luggage to the cruise ship. And then they picked us up at the cruise ship the next day. We had different guides each day. What we appreciate the most is being able to talk with the guides, ask questions and have meaningful conversations about the city and the country. It was like having a friend show you around. The highlight for me was Boulder beach and thousands of penguins. But the Cape was a bucket list item - it was just so very windy. Our visit to Cape Town was fun and informative. We highly recommend PG Tops for a private tour. Great VALUE!

We did 4 days of touring with PG Tops (2 Days of Winelands, 1 Day Shark Cage Diving, and 1 Day Peninsula Tour), and it was money well spent! Our guides, Bianca and Ryan, had a ton of local knowledge, so we ended up saving time (we started our Peninsula tour early to avoid having to queue) and visiting some places we never would have found on our own (we visited a couple of great wineries that we'd never heard of and Ryan also recommended the most delicious Fish and Chips shop in Simonstown). Both Ryan and Bianca were super friendly and flexible (my husband decided that there was one particular winery he wanted to visit, so Ryan rearranged our day's plans to make sure we had time to visit it), so all four days were relaxing and stress free.

One of the fun surprises for me was the Wine and Chocolate Pairing at Spier Winery. We live in Switzerland, so I was skeptical about how good the chocolate could be compared to Swiss chocolate ;), but it was super unique and delicious! The chocolates had different flavors that paired with different wines, but the real surprise was how the chocolate flavor changed the taste of the wine! Super interesting! Thanks, Bianca, for recommending that we try it!

I can't wait for another chance to visit South Africa and discover more with PG Tops!

We were an extended family of 05 Adults + 03 Senior Citizens (65 plus) + 02 Teenagers + 04 Children (between 05 - 09yrs) and were visiting Cape Town & The Garden Route for the first time, that too during the peak months of December. We approached PG Tops quite late in September to take care of our itinerary planning, ground arrangements & guide for a Personalized Experience. The first e-mail itself from Ms.Yolanda was a nerve soother and we knew we were in safe hands.

Complete professionalism in planning the itinerary, considering we were to complete the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth in 03 days flat, suggesting attractions, places to eat with due consideration for us vegetarians with kids and complete transparency in communication of the charges and the payment schedules. The icing on the cake (which we later discovered while on the tour) was their suggestion to pre-book reservations at restaurants considering the size of the group, cuisine preferences & the peak season (25th December to 30th December), that's a personal touch par excellence !!! Lots of blessings from all family members to Ms.Yolanda & the entire PG Tops team for this.

Arrival day, Christmas eve, we missed connecting flights and upset our arrival schedules. The PG Tops Private Guide Mr. Rod & driver Mr. David ensured they picked us up post midnight, informed the hotel about the delay, ensured rooms were allotted and a speedy check-in with sleepy kids.

The biggest satisfaction undoubtedly on the tour has been Mr. Rod (our guide), vast experience, very knowledgeable, soft spoken, a hit with the kids and the seniors of the family alike. He has ensured that all attractions as per our itinerary have been enjoyed by the family at Cape Town and along the Garden Route as well, reconfirming room reservations, restaurant reservations as well as flight timings. A personal Thank You Rod & David for your efforts, God Bless You

You can't get any better service than this!!! A dream vacation coming together !!!
