Thembelani kwaza is very attentive.
On the first day we did the kayak tour and we visited caves.
We stayed in great comfortable hostels, good food.
He took the group to the bungee jump on the second day and on the third the long-awaited safari
Super recommend !!!

I had an amazing experience with this company. We were picked up from our accommodation in cape Town and then we drove to the first place to stay. All the guides were very nice, especially Ulrich. The next day we were allowed to walk with and feed 3 rescued elephants, went kayaking and had the opportunity to bungeejump. The last day was the safari, we saw 4 out of 5 of the big 5. In short: this was an amazing tour with an excellent guide!

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time on this tour, and it was a great way to see and explore South Africa! Our tour guide was Yuriel, and I cannot say enough good things about him. He was extremely kind, helpful, and informative while we were on our trip. I would highly recommend to take your Garden Tour with Hotspot2c and request Yuriel!

Our tour was fantastic. My dad and I did a private three day garden route tour leaving from Cape Town. We had such a great time we hired our guide, Liezel, again for a fourth day to take us to cape point and simons beach to see the penguins.
1. Timeliness: Our guide was in the lobby waiting for us promptly at 8:30 am the first day. The next two mornings she was always on time or early and every time we set a time to meet back up she was waiting. She was always ready to go, no waiting or fussing with navigation or anything else.
2. Stops along the drive: all of our stops were excellent. From the distance they were spaced out to the stuff to do at each stop. Every stop included food, boutique type shopping and a little bit of meandering to stretch your legs. They were all stops you wouldn’t know to make if you were driving it on your own which was awesome. One of the stops was at a farmers market of sorts and it was completely amazing. I had homemade food and shopped for over an hour. There were artists there selling their goods that I later saw marked up for double the price at retailers along the waterfront in Knysna.
3. Information: Liezel was full of awesome information all four days. It was exactly the anecdotal info you want on a tour. Some facts and history but also cultural information and things about the people in the various areas. Also we could ask her things and she would actually have answers so she wasn’t just memorizing a few random things to tell us she really was a wealth of information.
4. Accommodations: we stayed at four star places both nights and both places were excellent. Cleanliness, location, breakfasts were all really great. The first place was Buffelsdrift Lodge which was like glamping in the most awesome way. Canvas rooms all situated around a lagoon where hippos were wading and pathways filled with deer. We requested to stay in Knysna instead of sedgefield (I think) and stayed on the water next to the V&A Waterfront the second night. Very worth it and would recommend. I don’t think there’s much else to do in Knysna besides the waterfront so it’s worth it to stay at it.
5. Activities: the first day we drove from Cape Town to Oudtshoorn and saw vineyards, stopped for a port tasting, saw the Congo Caves, and finished off with dinner at Buffelsdrift (the food was great and super inexpensive). The second day we stopped at the farmers market (I think it was in barrydale), then drove to see the bungee jumpers at the worlds highest bungee bridge then went to Tsitsikamma forest where we saw Dassies running around and then walked to the rope bridge over Storms Mouth which was super worth it and took about twenty to thirty minutes each way. The last day the tour is scheduled for a row/kayak but hotspots had organized a lagoon tour in Knysna for us instead at our request. But once we were there we decided we didn’t want to wait around the third day for the lagoon tour and Liezel quickly came up with an alternative. We left to return to Cape Town earlier and she did a walking and driving tour of Cape Town with us which was perfect.
Hotspots, specifically Benita, organized everything for us in advance in accordance with our requests. Since it was a private tour we could change things. At first when we were setting this up I was feeling like I was unsure what to expect. As soon as I voiced that to Benita she sent me a thorough itinerary so if you want details you have to ask for them. Having the private tour along the way made it so we could stay or go whenever we wanted. However, I know that a group tour would be great as well because the activities and stops would be similar or the same. On the group tours you have the option to actually bungee jump and do more thrill type things if you want. I think the group tour would be great for people in their 20s or older people who are relaxed and don’t care about waiting for other people (as with any group tour).
After we parted ways on the last day we were scheduled to kayak with a different tour the next day in Cape Town. It was cancelled last minute the morning of. I texted Liezel and asked advice on alternative activities and within thirty mins she had phoned hotspots with tour options for us and also advice for what to do if we didn’t book a tour. We loved her so much we paid to have her take us out for another day. We did the cape point tour into the national park (which is welllllll worth it) and saw the penguins and Simons Beach (also well worth it) and made some other stops along the way and drove Chapman’s Peak which was beautiful.
Liezel was amazing. It was like being on vacation with a super knowledgeable friend. We had such a great time. Especially for me being with my dad, it was so awesome to have another thirty-something to share the experiences with too. If you book with hotspots you should DEFINITELY ask for her.

We had a great time. The tour guide ( Liezel) was very friendly and took personal interest in taking care of us. She is informative and answered our questions. We would like to thank Liezel for making this tour very pleasant for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the amazing scenic points around Cape Town regional area. Breath taking scenic views along the garden route tour and stay in Knysa was our high light of our tour. We would highly recommend this company ‘ hotspot2c travel tours.

Thanks Rajah and Aathi for taking the time to let us know our loved your tour experience with Hotspots2c Tours and your local insider guide Liezel. She's just a wealth of knowledge! South Africa is a land of contrasts and nowhere is this more apparent than a meandering stretch of the south-eastern coastline that is known for its ecological diversity and jaw-dropping scenery – our aaah-so-beautiful Garden Route. Spliced by dramatic mountain ranges and epic road trip routes, it is no wonder this route has become THE must-do activity on any Western Cape holiday. Thanks for recommending our popular 5-day Garden Route + Addo tour too and if you ever think of coming back to South Africa; you know who to call -we'll make sure you see the rest and the best of our country again.

Our Garden Route Tour was my biggest highlight of my time in South Africa! From seeing the Stars on the beach, to bungee jumping off of a terrifying bridge, I would not take back any of it! Our Tour guide Neville was so much fun as well, and we wouldn't have had nearly as great of an experience without him. His knowledge of all the places we visited was unrivaled, and him being a fun loving person definitely helped. 11/10 recommend!
