  • I can not recommend Tourdust and the wonderful Lisa highly enough. I had been searching for a family holiday to South Africa and could never quite seem to find the right combination. I eventually found one that seemed to fit the bill on the Tourdust website and sent off an e-mail to make a general enquiry. Within a few days, following a Sunday 'phone conversation with Lisa, I ended up with a different itinerary that was even better, including things that I wanted to do that I thought the kids would hate (Gourmet Foodie day tour to South Africa's winelands anyone?) but that Lisa assured me wouldn't bore the kids (she was right). The service I received was knowledgeable, smooth, efficient and friendly. Looking forward to booking again with them. Thank you Lisa and Tourdust!

  • We had an absolutely fantastic time on our Garden Route trip and I would be more than happy to provide feedback for you and Tourdust. I also thought you might like to know directly some of our experiences.

    All the logistics worked smoothly from our meet and greet through to car pick up. Glad we picked the larger van as it meant we and our suitcases had lots of space. The vehicle was perfect for the longer drives.

    Pumba was a perfect introduction to safari for our kids. The dedicated ranger was ideal as it allowed us to modify our plans to suit the children and we managed to see elephants, giraffe and lots of other game up close. They even tailored one afternoon so the kids could try archery and fishing whilst we relaxed. The food and accommodation was lovely and well suited for a family of our size. Food was delicious and ample to keep us full of energy.

    We have been privileged to stay in many great hotels but we agreed Hunters country house is probably our favourite. The service was outstanding, food was great and they even proactively booked us into their restaurant Zinzi and. Leaned the car! Accommodation was again perfect for us with to adjoining rooms and the grouds are beautiful. We have already highly recommended to other friends. Being between knysna and plattenberg is a great location and we had lots of exciting adventures.

    Zeekoe at Oudtshoorn as you know was our next stop. It gave us a great chance to visit the caves and that was pretty much all there was so two nights was the ideal length. We ate both nights at the hotel as nothing was open as it was a Sunday in the town. The food was ok but the fact there was lots of space for the kids to run around and we met several other families made it another good location. We actually enjoyed driving over the mountains and heading in land for a while. The kids loved a small adventure park near the caves that had some water slides.

    The whale coast hotel at Hermanus was a different location being in the town. The accommodation was ideal again as we enjoyed being close to all the restaurants and shops whilst also having two floors and three bedrooms. The breakfast provided by the hotel was basic but with so many other nearby great restaurants it wasn't an issue. It was also close to shops and as it had a kitchen we got some extra items for those early mornings.

    Finally we made it the vineyard for Christmas. I can't thank you enough for the effort you undertook to find us suitable rooms as again this little appartment with three rooms, a living space and kitchen suited us really well. Especially as it gave Santa a place to put stockings. I was a little skeptical about the hotel in advance having stayed in many other great Cape Town locations but it was a lovely hotel. Great food, kids menus, and we managed to have Christmas lunch at Myoga which was outstanding. The kids loved searching out the giant tortoises that lived there and it provided a nice location for some running. The staff were very friendly, always willing to help and I would highly recommend it as it gives you a break from the hustle and bustle of the V&A whilst also being easy to drive to.

    I can't really explain well just how much fun we had and we all agreed that it was probably our best holiday yet and far exceeded our expectations.

  • I wanted to express my huge gratitude to you for our amazing holiday. From start to finish, I was particularly impressed by your organisation of everything.... the flights and all the transfers were smooth and on time. In fact the transfer drivers arrived early and were all very friendly and put me at ease immediately. South African Airways were excellent too - it was a very smooth journey all round.
    Our safari at Rhino River Lodge was utterly superb. Your choice of safari for my son and myself was excellent. As you know, feeling safe was particularly important for me as I was travelling on my own with my son, and I have to say that at Rhino River Lodge, I immediately felt safe and welcomed. We arrived just in time for the afternoon drive and although we were tired from our long journey, adrenaline immediately kicked in when we pulled up alongside two cheetahs resting after their feed. The days that followed were incredible - each game drive was a different, amazing adventure - memories which will remain with my son and I for ever. The staff at Rhino River Lodge are really great - our game driver, Alex was superb and very informative. The food was great too and the accommodation was lovely, really hot showers and spacious room.
    Our time at Lalaria lodge afterwards was very relaxing - again a good choice of place - the hosts, Linda and Tony, were extremely friendly and very helpful. On the evening we arrived, they laid on some homemade bread, dips and barbecued sausages out on the terrace for us and the other English family staying there - a lovely way for us all to get to know each other. To be honest, it felt like we were all friends sharing a BBQ rather than guests in a hotel. Linda and Tony were very helpful in organising taxis for us each day/evening and suggesting places to eat. The room we were given was great - a sea view room - very, very spacious.
    It was a holiday of a lifetime and I can’t thank you enough for all the amazing organisation. I felt very looked after from start to finish and it was very important for me to feel that way. I will certainly be using Tourdust again and will recommend you to others.
