My husband and I have used ToursByLocals as our go-to site for years, very successfully. We recently took two tours led by Lyn out of Port Elizabeth, SA. The Addo elephant tour should have been the highlight of our vacation. Lyn showed up in a van she had rented for the day...with no speaker system. Despite repeated requests, she refused to raise her voice to be heard. Of the four of us, only the person next to her could hear.....

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Dwiggins and group I must apologise regarding the rented vehicle without the PA system which I had to hire as my vehicle was in for repairs. The reason that at SANCCOB their is a volunteer guide to take the visitors around is that they have more information and up to date knowledge that what we as visiting guides have. I can of course do the tour but feel the visitors would get more information this way. The guide at Kragga Kamma Game Reserve is a specialist guide and they only have one.

We enjoyed the great amounts of elephants up close.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi Thank you for the feedback. It is always wonderful to be privileged to see lots of elephants in one place when visiting the park. Thanks Lyn

Lyn is a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and relaxed. She responded to my interest in plants and history, going out of her way to show me additional places that were not strictly part of the tour. We had wonderful viewing of African wildlife, elephants, zebra and many many more, but I particularly enjoyed getting to understand the local context and heritage values around Port Elizabeth. Patting a tame cheetah was a wondrous added extra that was immediately posted on Facebook to amaze my famil

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ro Thank you for your review. I thoroughly enjoyed the day too. Always a pleasure to discuss and admire nature with visitors with the same passion. Go well and thank you for your booking. Best wishes Lyn
