FAQs

    • If I'd like to have a private room, can I request on the day of the tour or I need to have it when I do the booking?

      You're much better off requesting your single room at the time of booking to avoid missing out. There is no guarantee there will be a single room available, if you ask for it upon arrival.

      The accommodation preference must be indicated at the time of booking as the base price indicated is only for backpacker dorm and the booking would have to be adjusted.

    • Is there a single supplement available on this tour?

      Yes. Please take note that there will be an extra charge for a single supplement room. Please contact us to arrange this.

    • Can the optional activities be paid before the tour?

      The optional extra activities can only be decided and paid for while on tour, directly to the activity provider either via card or cash.

    • What is the 10 day Coast2Coast tour is made up of?

      The 10 day Coast2Coast tour is made up of a combination of 3 tours, the 3day Western Cape Wild, the 5day Garden Route + Addo and the 2day West Coast Wild. Please note the 2day West Coast Wild option does not have a 4star option.

    • Can you tell me more about how the pick up works?

      You will be pick up from your accommodation but this must be within +-10km from Cape Town Central.
      Here are a few areas which we pick up from:

      •Green Point
      •Observatory
      •Bo-KaapCity
      •Cape Town City Centre
      •Sea Point
