Edwin and Adriaan are really terrific! Our trip was spectacular and everything ran like a Swiss train! We went to Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Point, Hermanus, Simonstown, wine estates in Stellenbosch and Table mountain. They are knowledgeable, fun to be around and the days flew by. We can’t thank them enough for making our trip so easy and so truly enjoyable!! We felt like we were part of a terrific family! Enjoy Cape town and enjoy Avatar tours. Thanks again Edwin and Adriaan for everything!!

The most beautiful place with the most talented tour guides. Avatar tours showed us the most fantastic places and sites in Cape Town. We only had 4 days but Adriaan and Edwin made the tour exciting, and efficient. I can highly recommend Avatar tours for your visit to Cape Town.

I HIGHLY recommend Avatar Tours. My wife and I were in South Africa for business and took a week vacation after work. Adriaan setup our entire stay and provided a personalized tour of Cape Town and our safari in Kruger National Park, as well as our cultural tour of Pretoria and Johannesburg. This was an amazing experience!

I had the best tour experience with Avatar Tours. I experienced the wine, safari & boulders bay/Penguin tours with Avatar. Apart from the fact that all the planning and costs were included in the price and the knowledge of the area was outstanding, the personal service was exceptional. I felt completely safe and very well looked after from the minute I was picked up to the time I was dropped off. The interest given to make sure I was having the best time ever was incredible. I highly recommend this tour company and I will be back for more tours in the future. Thank you Adriaan for helping me have the best time in the Western Cape Area! 🙂

It was my first time to visit South-Africa. Adriaan from Avatar Tours organize a 3-day private tour for me, and I really enjoyed this trip. Highly recommended!!

My husband and I just had the most amazing trip, mainly due to the fantastic job Avatar Tours (aka Adriaan and Edwin) did to plan each day we were in South Africa. They were extremely kind, flexible and fun. From climbing Table Mountain with us, to spending the day checking out penguins and touring the beautiful sites at cape point, to wine tasting and city tours these two made our trip a dream. Adriaan did a fantastic job finding and booking our safari experience. He called and checked with us to ensure everything was as expected. They went above and beyond to make sure our trip was what we’d imagined. Can’t say enough great things and recommend them enough. 5-star service all the way.

Without any prior booking, we called Adrian to ask if we still can have a guided tour via Cape Town, and only 1 hour later we got it! Thanks to Adrian and his colleagues we spend two perfect days in this magical city, and that was amazing. I would highly recommend a township tour and walking city tour for everyone who wants to feel the spirit of Cape Town and South Africa. Thank you, Adrian, we really enjoyed it!!
