They answered all of my questions. Everything went smoothly with the booking of my trip - Cape Town to Victoria Falls.
We have been in contact with Nicky at African Overland Tours for a few months. Nicky has been absolutely fantastic in helping us plan our first ever group tour! Super quick responses and super detailed with lots of information. I feel the service was above and beyond what is usually expected. Nicky not only gave us some great information on tours but also gave lots of advice on our independent section of travel in Africa.

It took us a while to decide on which tour is best for us, due to timing and flights and other travel before and after the Africa tour but we finally managed to nail down the perfect tour for us with the help of Nicky. Overall, we are very pleased with the customer service at African Overland Tours. We will update a review after our tour from Cape Town to Victoria Falls in June.

10/10 for customer service!
Thanks very much Katie! I'm so pleased Nicky was able to help you on the journey to find an amazing experience!

Thanks so much for the kind words, we deeply appreciate it.

Kindest regards

Our communication with African Overland tours has been nothing short of outstanding. Tammy who we have dealt with has been extremely helpful catering for our needs and ensuring we got the trip that suited us. She was both extremely polite and very professional I would not hesitate to recommend your group to other travelers thinking of using your company.
Wonderful Jennifer!! I'm over the moon from your comments. Thanks so much for them, I'm so pleased you found Tammy extremely helpful :)

What can I say about Huntley Cronje? He gives personalized service and conveys his genuine interest in offering the best travel options to suit the client. Hie is charming and helpful and I appreciate the patient and tactful way in which he put up with some delays from my side.
Wow Joan, thank you so much for the extremely kind words.

Huntley is truly amazing and takes such pride in helping everyone. We deeply appreciate what you have said and thank you so so much.

We were very happy to connect with African Overland Tours as we began our search for a trip to Namibia. We knew a few things we wanted and a few we did not. While it took a bit longer than expected to get our trip organized, Tammy found a perfect compromise with our desires and pocketbooks. The on line process was simple and we received prompt information about this. We can’t wait to finally experience Namibia.
Thanks so much, Jacqui! I'm over the moon we could help you and you found us extremely helpful :) You are going to love Namibia in October, it is a beautiful place to explore.

The SA garden route and the the Namibia camping tour.
We hav3 just completed the garden route tour which was superb, and hope the Namibian tour will be just as good.
Elroy answered all our questions really well and very promptly.He was a joy to deal with even those kept changing our minds about the tour we wanted as we had to fit them within our strict dates.
Massive Thanks for the kindest review. I'm am so pleased you loved both the trips! I'm so happy you found Elroy amazing to deal with.

We are first time travellers to southern Africa. We consulted AOT who were able to offer us a variety of tours to choose from within our budget and time parameters. There was no hard selling whatsoever and they were excellent at answering all our questions promptly. This helped us to make our decision. The support has continued throughout, with nothing being too much trouble.

Our tour commences on 30/01/2019. Based on our experience we are very happy to recommend AOT.
Hi John,

I'm so pleased Chemone was able to help you both find a wonderful SA trip :)

Your words were incredibly kind and we deeply appreciate what you said. This is exactly what we try to do for everyone.

Kindest regards

All staff have been very helpfull, answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect tour for me. Even though they were very busy, they always kept me informed of the proces.

The only down side was that the tour I picked turned out to be more expensive because the additional costs were written in really small letters so I did not see it. I was dissappointed but they told me they are working on showing this in a different way on the website and helped me find a tour that would fit my budget.

Very satisfied!
Thanks so much Lotti! Thanks so much for the feedback. The designers have redesigned the layout usability. We deeply appreciate it.
