“I can’t say enough good things about David Smith and African Blue Tours. My friends and I had had a wonderful 3-day safari in Kruger through them in 2006, so I reached out to them again when I knew that I’d be going to Cape Town for a conference, and I wanted to add a week’s holiday for my husband (who’d never been to Africa before). We signed up for four of the trips offered on the website:
1) the day trip to the Cape Town townships and Robben Island
2) the day trip to the Cape of Good Hope
3) the 3-day trip to greater Kruger National Park
4) the day trip to the Cradle of Humankind and Lesedi, outside of Johannesburg (the day of our night flight home).
David and company took care of all of the arrangements, including transfers and the hotel in Joburg. Each of the trips was well-planned, very interesting, and led by exceptional guides; the entire week became the trip of a lifetime. When we go back to South Africa again (and we will!), we will rely on the travel acumen of African Blue Tours, since we know whatever trips we choose will be well-run, exceptional and affordable.

Thank you so much African Blue tours and congratulations to David, Valentine , Duncan and Matthew !
A few day trips with this team made me addict to SA.
With Matthew we spent a fabulous day exploring the West Coast National Park and the Cape Peninsula. Thanks to him we discovered the beautiful landscapes of SA.
And then with Duncan who was so patient, caring, passionate , we discovered the Tsitsikamma region, had a fun day kayaking , walking on the suspension bridge at Storms River Mouth and then on the garden route where he showed us such a beautiful route.
And at last but not least thanks to David and Valentine for their impecable organization of our stay in SA !

“I must say that African Blue and David Smith made my recent trip to South Africa an experience I will remember for years to come. David made recommendations based on my agenda and interests. He was accurate and very professional.
He even recommended where to stay! and YES! was he right!! I enjoyed every second of my stay in South Africa.”
Whenever I go back I will look for you guys again!
Thanks, A very satisfied costumer”

My friend and I found African Blue Tours on line and we could not have been more pleased. They provided great support and flexibility throughout our planning. We did 3 day tours including Winelands, Cape Point, Robben Island and Township tours. On two of the days we were “outsourced” to other companies. At first I was skeptical but the tours were great. We had one day with a tour guide from African Blue. On all three days the guides were excellent, vans comfortable and sights and experiences amazing. I have already recommended this company to friends and will continue to do so for anyone lucky enough to travel to Cape Town and South Africa.

I brought a group of 20 senior cricket fans to Cape Town for the Newlands Test on 03/01/2010.
I was in contact with David Smith of African Blue Tours by email to arrange trips for the group on New Years Day and on the 2nd of January. On both days he was our guide and gave us the benefit of his local knowledge having been brought up in Camps Bay. The bus provided was a 25 seater comforable with Aircon and a personable driver.
The Cape Peninsula tour was everything I asked you for, taking in Camps Bay, Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak and Cape Point. We returned via the Penguins at Boulders Beach and had a pleasant drink on the quay at Simonstown.
The Winelands tour highlight was the cellar tour and tasting at Seidelberg, which was David’s idea. They provided local cheeses and Italian meats with the tasting, at 11 am. Boschendal wine tasting and Le Picnic for Lunchwas also good in a wonderful setting under the trees. We returned via Stellenbosch and called in at Spier to see the Cheetah Outreach project, look in the shop and have a drink. Our two days out were enjoyed by all the group, and I have no hesitation in reccommending African Blue Tours as your trip organiser in Cape Town.

We would not hesitate at any time to give you excellent recommendations to anyone that might ask and will refer your services to all our friends and corporate associates.

Hello David, I really want to thank you for the fantastic 2 day Kruger tour! Everything was just perfect and all of the guys – Rufus, Jan, Sam and Aaron were so friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend this to all my friends!

I am so happy that I contacted David Smith and African Blue Tours!
I was looking for a moderately priced safari not foo far from Cape Town, and I exchanged numerous emails with David. His replies were always prompt, and full of useful information. David is a thorough professional, very organized, and extremely knowledgeable about the extraordinary array and diversity of safari choices available in South Africa. We followed all his recommendations, and he arranged a wonderful 3-day safari to Sanbona for my wife and myself in August 2015. The trip was absolutely perfect. I can’t recommend it highly enough. As an added benefit, we had private transportation to and from Sanbona with David and his wife Michelle. On the trip back from Sanbona, all I could think about was the next trip I wanted to do with African Blue. Thanks David for arranging such a dream vacation for my wife and me.

“Thank you for the safari! We really enjoyed ourselves and will definitely contact you if we decide to do any other safaris when we are next in SA.”
Michelle Pillay, South Africa
“We did this tour, and right from pick up I knew we were in for a good tour. Duncan was our guide and he amazing with all his knowledge, and he clearly enjoys what he does with nothing being too much trouble, at no time were we rushed so we able to spend as little or as much time as we wanted at each stop, he went far beyond what we expected stopping for us to get out and take pictures of the wildlife. Thank you Duncan for a truly wonderful experience.”
Sally Crewe, England
“We had a great time in Kruger. Our group would especially like to thank and commend Sam – who was our guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and professional. A great guy who we all enjoyed getting to know. Thanks for all of your help David.”
David Chudnovsky, England
“My wife and went to South Africa in August of 2011 and hired David and his company Africa Blue to assist us. It turned out to be one of the best things that happened to us on our trip. David was very professional, all his recommendations were excellent, he has an excellent knowledge of the country and was very easy to work with.
Our time in South Africa was made better by meeting David and sharing some time with him.
I highly recommend African Blue Tours and would tell anyone arranging a personal or professional tour to South Africa to use his services.”
