We enjoyed a really great day out with Turnstone Tours, recommended to us by Audley Travel. We were picked up on time in the well used Landrover by Burga,our driver and guide. There was just one other couple with us. We drove from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay, seeing the birding sites on the way. Passing the interesting salt works we... More

We enjoyed the most incredible full-day tour of Sandwich Harbour with Bruno and Schteimie (spelled?). Bruno, the owner of the company, is one of the most interesting people you will ever meet. Any topic of conversation that comes up you will find such a wealth of knowledge and interesting view points. He is an admirable conservationist and a professional photographer.... More

We did the full-day tour out of Swakopmund, with Bruno and Burger. What a day! Driving on the beach, trapped on one side by the waves, and the other by the dunes. Burger's expert driving was a marvel to watch. We drove over the dunes - wow! We had a simple and lovely home cooked meal on the beach, complete... More

Full day tour of the Namibian Sand Dunes. Very knowledgeable guides, took time to explain the wonders of the area and stopped often to point out the uniqueness of the Namibian Coast. Viewed birds, springbok, and all sort of local wildlife. Served a good lunch and paid attention to our needs to have a wonderful day's experience.

We did 2 tours with Turnstone - one out into the Dezz, the other along the high dunes at Oyster Bay. Both Bruno and Burgher (our Guides) were just fabulous - they understood quickly what we were interested in and then just laid it on! Great guys, to boot!

My wife and I are enthusiastic, 'opportunist' bird watchers and really wanted to do some birding whilst in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. We read in a number of Guide Books that, for this area, the Turnstone Tours organisation provides the definitive combination of Birding and Expeditions to view the amazing sand dunes, bay areas, Kuiseb Delta and Sandwich Harbour. Well,... More

Sandwich harbor is one of the places in Namibia which is quite elusive and you need to know what you are doing to get in and out safely! Bruno, of Turnstone tours, has done this trip about 3000 times and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this area. The tour is definitely worth doing... even again and again!

We had an incredible day today with Bruno, the owner of Turnstone Tours. Sandwich Harbour took our breath away, and although we have been told Bruno doesn't care much for Trip Advisor reviews - he just does what he does, and does it well- we have to review for others to see and go ahead with this fantastic day tour....

A full day trip from Swakopmund to Sandwich Harbour with Sunstone Tours was first class. Our guide Burger was friendly, informative and knows how to drive on the tricky coast and dune surfaces. The scenery is very varied with surprising patches of vegetation where you would not expect to find in this desert environment. There are opportunities to climb up... More

This tour was one of the highlights of of 9 day trip! Without doing any research I was expecting this to be a boat tour. Fortunately I discover the evening before that it was in fact a dune tour! Wear layers and don't forget sunscreen and a hat! An amazing day of incredible sights. Burger was an amazing guide and... More
