What people have been saying about Africa4Real

Sandy Edmonds (USA) – sje8@earthlink.net

"Mark arranged and conducted a Garden Route tour for our party of 12. I felt for him as we were a party of 12 girls and ladies only! He was a thorough gentleman and a very knowledgeable tour guide. We will use him again"

"Dear Mark, A colleague at my school who lived in Zimbabwe years ago, is anxious to return there and visit South Africa with her family. I told her all about you. Do you still do small, individualized tours? They would like to do the Garden Route from Cape Town.

Hope all is well with you. I do miss going to PE in the summer.

Best, Sandy"

Hi Mark-

Sandy and I are finally back at home in the states after about 24 hours of flying. Luckily, no new snow and relatively warm (40 degrees F ) temperature! Looks like we might be getting another storm this Tuesday and Wednesday, though. Thanks again for everything. I'll eventually post photos of the trip on Facebook. Hope you had a great weekend with your sons!


Thanks very much in advance for any help.

Best regards to your family, hope all is well. Marcia 

Do you have any suggestions?

Dear Mark – We can't thank you enough for all you have done for to make this week amazing for us.

We bought a property in South Africa 8 years ago, and have become very good friends with Mark from Africa4real Tourism Services. We met originally when we used his company for touring when we first came to South Africa. Now we meet as friends.

Mark – The township tour my mother and I did with you really opened our eyes to things in my own country that I was not aware of. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day for us.

I was politely requested by Africa4real to offer a testimonial, and I agreed with pleasure. If anyone wishes to tour in SA, please use Africa4real Tourism. 

Our Garden Route tour was exceptional, and good value, considering it was only my family of 4 on the tour.

We arranged an-add on stay in Port Elizabeth after our Garden Route tour, which was booked through our travel agent in Manchester. Africa4real Tourism Services was recommended to us by our tour guide in Cape Town, and fairly so.

During our extra 2 days in P.E., we visited the Addo Elephant Park, took in a city tour and did some shopping, all under the care of Peter, who certainly didn't lack any enthusiasm and knowledge as a guide.

Hi Mark, I had such a good time with you on our trip. Thanks so much for all your thoughtful planning.

Speaking of, my family is thinking of a trip to the Western Cape in mid March, when Jack has a school holiday. We would fly to George, rent a car, maybe stay in one place and take trips from there. With two young children we aren't thinking of a lot of driving.

Ideal would be a self-catering inn with restaurant option and room for three adults and two kids (with pool!). I think from 3 star to 41/2 star place.

Thanks for the note Mark. It was a long trip home. Yesterday I was a jet lagged mess, but today I feel fine again. I hope you got the photo that I sent. It was a lovely trip, we were so glad to have you as our guide. We learned so much from you. :)

Dear Mark I really appreciate that you did the city tour over for my benefit, thank you very much. We all had an amazing tour, which was made better by your cheerful demeanour and great sense of humour!

 You made this tour extra special. Not only the part where we were with you, but the whole tour. It was fantastic! I hope to return one day to your beautiful country.
