Our second trip to Capetown and this time was down the Garden Route... We are really glad that we had Gary with us and it made such a difference to our experience. We went along the coastal region and Knysna and Tsitsikamma were the highlights for us... Gary's recommendations on places to see and stay were spot on and somewhere down the long stretches of a wonderful drive he figured that we travelled with our tummies.. the restaurant recommendations that followed for Capetown and Garden route blew us away.... Travel to the Cape with Gary and you travel with a friend.... Great destination and Great company... we could not have asked for more.

We had the pleasure of Gary Flynn as a Tour Guide on our recent trip around S.Africa and we were extremely impressed. He managed to get the balance so right, between being informative and interesting but allowing you some "quiet" time too, hence you did not feel that you had to keep talking all day long. We saw so much and he dealt with everything so efficiently, ensuring that we maximised our time and experienced as much as possible. Always punctual and polite, friendly and so genuine, we would recommend him to anyone who wants to be taken care of and make the most of their time. Thanks for a great trip Gary.

I picked Gary as a guide for Capetown based on the highly positive reviews of other travellers of his trips posted on this site. We were a party of three sisters and our respective families with a range of ages from a one year old to a 55 year old. Everyone had different interests which we needed to accommodate. Also, our tour was due to start before Christmas and end after the New Year and most accommodation in Capetown and Knysna only took bookings for ten days. I contacted Gary back in February and immediately got a response and suggestion for our tours and he helped us locate suitable accomodation. He even went to certain places and listened for noise from each room before recommending it to us. Even when he was on tour he would respond promptly to e-mails. He did all this for free and never even asked us for a deposit, unlike every other place we booked with in SA. He hired a bigger van for our party, made sure there was a baby seat, and was very in tune to the various family members little quirks and likes and dislikes. He even took some of the more active family members hiking up Table Mountain and has offered to scout for real estate opportunities in Capetown. We had a fantastic time. Every day held a new adventure from checking out the penguins on Boulder Beach; to touring the Cape Peninsula and the wine estates; riding ostriches; scuba diving at Knysna; a township tour of Capetown and even diving with the crocodiles at the Cangu Wildlife Park. A lifetime of memories in ten days. We had a ball and canīt recommend Gary enough. Gary works for the love of it rather than the money (he is officially retired-- at a very young age!) and only takes on a few tours every few weeks which he leads with passion. Consider yourself very fortunate to go on a tour with him. His rates are reasonable too.

We had a truly wonderful trip with Gary. He was very knowledgable and was prepared to take us to quite special "off the beaten track" places. We enjoyed our time with him and could thoroughly recommend him. We will be repeat customers.
