Awesome experiences every day!
Jan 2020 • Couples
This trip was amazing. We were spoiled by our guide, Maudi, who gave 200% to ensure our comfort. 10 stars for Maudi! There was a lot of driving, but we were able to experience places in South Africa that otherwise would have remained unknown to us. There were no disappointments so the driving was necessary, and therefore worth it! If possible, make sure to go on the elephant walk. It was a favorite, as was the safari, wine tasting at Simonsig in Stellenbosch and having breakfast with our marvelous hostess in Khayamandi who treated us to chakalaka, fry bread and rooibos tea. Everything was so much fun. We booked the luxury accomodations, and again we were not disappointed. The Agulhas Country Inn and Restaurant was my favorite. My spouse liked the safari tent accomodations at Buffelsdrift Lodge which had a wonderfully relaxing pool. We both enjoyed a wonderful dinner at De Viskijf where we dined on exquisitely prepared game meats, including ostrich, kadu and springbocke, and enjoyed a very tasty Bibotie. Try and visit via taxi and ask for waitstaffer Bianca. But in the end, the tour would not be complete without Maudi, who went above and beyond. Highly recommended Hotspots2C!

That made me so hungry now, thinking of all those delicious foods that you enjoyed! We just love hearing such wonderful feedback not only about our tours but about our incredible guides that are on the road with you 24/7. We thank you for taking the time to share your lovely experience with Hotspots2c on our 7-day Garden Route and Winelands combo tour. This is the best way to explore the Garden Route, safari, some vineyards, South African cuisine and yes even the southernmost tip of Africa, Cape Agulhas! There is lots of driving but we ensure the stops are worth it. Thank you for recommending us and giving our super guide Maudi such a great review. We hope to welcome you back on your next adventure.

Fantastic trip - amazing landscape
Oct 2019 • Solo
The trip was very well organized. Everything went smoothly. The accommodations were also well chosen. Our guide Maudie was always very friendly - he knew very well and explained everything. He also responded to our requests. Simply a successful trip, which I can only recommend. If you'll travel alone by car, you would not experience so much in such a short time.

Thank you very much and see you soon ZA :-)

Thanks for recommending our 7 day Garden Route combo tour. We appreciate the effort you took to inform us and other travellers how much you loved this tour. Exploring an unknown country with a local guide by your side is simply the best wat to make sure you don't waste any time, and keep your trip stress to the minimum. And out trips being so affordable makes this a definite no-brainer. As you said, it will be extremely challenging for any first-time visitor to travel to and experience as much as what our tour does. Thanks for trusting us to show you around. Keep'on adventuring, from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

Very well balanced program and excellent guides
Aug 2019
Both the guides we had during the tour were top-level. Isaac Matlakeng led us for 5 days and Maudi for the last two; they were both very friendly, efficient and delivered us an awful lot of interesting information about places, history ... The choice of the activities was well balanced between the needs of young and less young participants. We had the 4-star accomodations that were really satisfactory, both in terms of location and quality. We suggest to take warm clothes, especially for early morning safaris.

You highlighted an extremely important point there, our tours are so well suited for young and young-at-heart older guests because it offers so much flexibility; from choosing where to stay to selecting the optional activities that you want to do during daily free-time. We love it, and are always super stoked to read excellent reviews that also rave about this 'adventure-your-own-way' style of our trips. We've made sure your guides Isaac and Maudi received this well-deserved praise too, and thens again for recommending our tours. If you ever get back to South Africa; and I know you won't be able to stay away for long.. then you know exactly who to contact! We'll make sure you have another unforgettable experience on tour again. Keep'on adventuring - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

Great tour guides
Jan 2019 • Couples
My wife and I generally never take tours but decided to do it this once, having never been to South Africa before. And it's true that on tours you lose a little independence due to the need to coordinate with fellow travellers - some of whom may have different priorities than you do. But despite that, we really really enjoyed the 7 days spent with Hotspots2C, largely because of the tour guides. Our trip was divided into two (Winelands/Agulhas, then Garden Route/Karoo) so we had two guides. Both were great guys. The first, Uriel de Wee, absolutely deserves his 5*+ recommendation, not only for his helpfulness but also because of the deep and very human conversations we were privileged to have with him about South African history, society and politics. Not to mention the music! The second, Mordy, was also great, working incredibly hard to help everyone, often getting up pre-dawn to ensure a full experience. He must get really tired at the end of the trip! In short, even more than the convenience and the sites, it is the people who made the difference and justified our taking a tour just this once.

We’re super honoured that you picked us for your “just this once” tour experience and are thrilled it was a five star decision! We are aware that flexibility is a huge value for travellers and have designed our group tours with that in mind, allowing our guests time to choose their own activities and customise their experience while still benefitting from the convenience, ease and great company of a group tour. Thanks for your recommendations of Uriel and Maudi - both stellar guides who go out of their way to ensure every guest has the time of their life! We hope to see you again one day soon for another “just this once” tour ;) Always keep'on adventurin' - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

7 day tour covered top South Africa hotspots
Oct 2018 • Family
- Well paced tour, with regular comfort breaks, tea/coffee/snack options and clean bathroom facilities across the route
- Excellent 3 star guesthouse accommodation with good breakfast options. Very friendly staff
- Good restaurants with suitable vegetarian food options
- Isaac was our driver/tour guide and was well informed about each area and gave good safety advice and was very helpful and friendly
- A very well organised tour
Pick-ups were always on time

Only recommendation would be to provide guests with a copy of the full proposed itinerary at the start of the tour (which we understand is always subject to weather conditions and time), that includes:
- approx. pick-up times
- time allowed at each stop (or indicate the quicker we leave the better for the next stop)
- set lunch slot/times and inform guests that food orders take longer, so they can pre-order.
- details of activities/options for each day and approx. costs.
- what footwear, appropriate clothing to wear (i.e. extra layers around Cape Agulhas and in the evenings, trainers and swimwear for Tsitsikama National Park & Cape Agulhas)

Eating lunch/dinner as a group was great as it gave us time to get to know each other and share experiences. However, it would be helpful if the restaurants are able to issue individual bills to couples, groups, etc, rather than guests having to work out what they ordered and add tips on top.

Thanks Hina for taking the time to leave this 5-star review and comments. We've discussed all these points listed above in our recent weekly product meeting. We truly appreciate the effort taken to communicate your views in so much detail. It's always important for us to get constructive feedback and ensure negatives are turned into positives for the next adventure. A full description of the trip's itinerary guideline and packing list is available under the Booking Terms section online before the trip is sold and emailed with the paid booking confirmation. While our guides always offer as much info as possible for guests to be prepared for the day ahead, an individual written copy would definitely be of benefit, however, we are aiming to keep our operation as paperless as possible. Less paper = more trees and a happy planet :) It would also be difficult to ensure accuracy at all times as weather, traffic and external factors from the 3rd party activity suppliers we use can easily affect the timetable. Lunch and dinner are usually not included on scheduled tours to give you time to explore and eat where and what you prefer. Unfortunately, most restaurants here do not offer the option to split bills but they easily will take partial payments from group members. Simply remember to keep track of your own bill if you end up dining with some of the group members at the same table. Happy that you had such a brilliant tour with Isaac. Always keep adventuring, from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c
