Had a wonderful day of quality time with my family during the Panorama tour! The comfort of not having to drive or search to find the best sights was great, and just to be able to enjoy the tour with my girls was priceless. Our guide Edward was fantastic! He knew exactly which sites to visit at which times in order to miss the rush, was extremely knowledgeable re the area, the sites and the history of the area (will never look at plantations the same again), friendly, efficient, professional, kind - and made us feel at ease from the moment he fetched us. Will definately book another tour through this company again! They really go the extra mile! Thank you for such a wonderful experience overall!

A combined birthday present for our children and grandchildren, ten persons in all. Their day went from saying ten hours would be too long to it should have been much longer. Their guide, Muzi was a star of the day with his extensive knowledge of all things bush, animal, bird was shared with the party keeping them enthralled. They were fortunate to see the big 5 as an added bonus. A huge plus to Dirk Tours for the exceptional service
