ToursbyLocals customers, make sure you go on a trip with Elastol! He is kind, knowledgeable and makes sure that you maximise time in the beautiful country of Zambia. After coming to Zambia for work, he was able to design a trip that fit in amazing adventures in only 30 hours or so, including sourcing great accommodation, a game drive (even walking through a river to see where we could cross) and a river safari in the Lower Zambezi. Completely overwhelmed by the experience, I would easily come back!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wooo, you (Shawna and Nicolas) were truly adventurous, engaging and mostly flexible that you had to utilize the little time you had after your long consultancy workshop you held in Lusaka. But you found time to spare for this tour. I loved every moment. I look forward to your return to Zambia no matter how long it will take.

Date: Oct 24/19

Elastol was a great guide. He came to pick us up at our hotel which is 17k outside of Livingstone and off the beaten path. He even came to the hotel the day before to make sure he could find it. He knew all the customs details and drove us out on a very hot day. Providing lots of water too to ensure our safety Great experience

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was awesome touring the Victoria falls with Roxanne and her daughter. This will remain memorable forever and I am hoping to see them come back even on a different tour with me soon.

David Hampshire

United Kingdom

Tour: #435912, Half Day Private Tour of Lusaka City, Lusaka, Zambia    view tour
Date: Aug 25/19

Elastol is a knowledgeable and empathetic guide who was able to adapt his tour to meet our requirements, finding the places we used to frequent 40 years ago and providing us with a good introduction to the present day Lusaka. He knows his way around, is good on his history, drives a comfortable car and was an excellent guide. He did this despite being up all night, he came straight from the hospital where his wife had just given birth. Happy ro recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Being with David and Patricia on this tour was another awesome experience. They were so engaging that i had an opportunity to share more with them about present day Lusaka compared to 3 decades ago. I was also able to recall through history about places they used to frequent 40 years ago and it was impressive how much they remembered. I networked with them and i hope they will make more referrals to other travelers, or hopefully to host them again in their next trip to Zambia.

Elastol took us on a day your of Lusaka National Park. We had an enjoyable and informative visit under his guidance. He has received some training as a naturalist guide and was able to supplement our own knowledge of what we were observing. We also had very interesting discussions with him to and from the park about life and politics in Zambia. Thanks, Elastol, for a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was nice having Jerry and Stefan on this day tour of Lusaka National Park. I enjoyed every conversation we had and I liked their friendliness and were open to ask questions about the Lusaka National Park.

Elastol was a great tour guide! We had an enjoyable day together touring Victoria Falls from both the Zambian and Zimbabwean sides. He also did a great job of telling me about local Zambian culture. I would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was awesome being with Michael on tour of Victoria Falls. He was so patient with every movement we made in the Victoria Falls. I hope he will be able to come back to Zambia soon.

Elastol was very professional, polite and flexible. He arrived on time to meet us at the airport. He answered all of our questions and was very knowledgeable on Zambia. He made sure we were safe and felt comfortable in an unknown city. We had a great lunch at a place he recommended. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks for a nice day! Christy and Stella.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting Christy and Stella in Lusaka. They were very understanding through out the tour. I enjoyed every moment of the tour.

Kathleen Donovan

United States

Tour: #288715, Tour of Victoria Falls on Zambia Side, Livingstone, Zambia    view tour
Date: May 4/18

I enjoyed my wonderful day in Zambia with Elastol. I loved that the day was customized to meet my expectations and that Elastol offered valuable suggestions. The best part was being able to share experiences, knowledge and laughs with someone from a different country and culture. This day will always have a special place in my heart.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was an honour to have Kathleen on this tour, especially getting socked up in the rains of the Victoria Falls when it isn't rain season in Zambia and crossing together on the knife bridge 200 mtrs above the Zambezi river bed which is a symbol of having done a full tour of Victoria Falls. I believe she enjoyed.
