We (a family of four including two children aged 9 and 6) have just returned from a 15 day trip to Cape Town South Africa with South Surf Tours. Our main reason for the trip was a 40th birthday celebration and so we really wanted something special with a chance to see and do new things. As such we spent a lot of time researching different destinations including California, Australia and Indonesia to name but a few hoping to make the right decision and have a very memorable holiday. South Africa had also always been on our bucket list and South Africa Surf Tours fantastic website instantly appealed with their pictures of beautiful scenery and promise of uncrowded quality surf which ultimately proved too hard to resist. Fast, detailed and very friendly responses to our emails from Tracey really impressed us as she expertly put together a bespoke day by day itinerary from a very long and varied list of available activities ranging from staple Cape Town epics such as visits to Table Mountain, Robben Island, the V&A Waterfront, a safari and shark cave diving to more sedate wine tasting, picnics and down days at the local beaches. South Africa Surf Tours large guesthouse accommodation in the heart of the quiet beach town of Kleinmond was fantastic both inside and out with very clean and tidy rooms and an excellent garden which saw multiple braiis (Ruan is an expert!!) and even the odd cricket match during our stay. Surfing needed to play a large part of our trip and South Africa and South Africa Surf Tours both delivered on all fronts due to the numerous breaks and Ruan’s obvious love of the ocean and enthusiasm coupled with his knowledge of the local area and conditions. We surfed every day often alone in some of the best waves and at some of the most pristine beaches we have ever seen. Ruan and Tracey went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations and ensuring we had the holiday we had wished for. Nothing was too much much trouble for them and they do genuinely seemed stoked to be showing people around a place that they so clearly love. We cannot rate South Africa Surf Tours highly enough and are already planning to return. James, Nicola, Joel and Rosie
