Our guide, Robert, provided us with insight into the local area and was very informative. The ride was pleasant and not hard at all. His advice about locations to visit after the tour really helped us fill our experience. Thank you!

Pleasant ride, great stops, a nice thing to do in Knysna. For me, 3 hours got kind of long because I got tired, but overall, I’d recommend this activity while there.
