  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Well, as per usual, tripadvisor did not fail us! We booked this tour last-minute on a whim after a long drive, and what a great break it was - beautiful weather, beautiful boat, great guide (Peter) - very knowledgeable as he lives here, plus he recommended a seaside grill type of place for lunch that proved to be just what we needed. A perfect break!

    Was an amazing experience! Very well organised. Friendly, helpful guides giving us information about restaurants and activities in the area. I would highly recommend this activity for some outdoor fun, lots of dust and stunning views.

    Great trip. It was great to see Knysna Head through the storied Knysna Heads and see the seals playing swimming in the ocean.

    What a pleasant experience, beautiful sunset and the skipper, Simon was very kind and skillful. Due to bad weather, we were upgraded to a bigger boat and appreciated it tremendously.

    We had a great experience, well worth it!

    Note however that the company was not aware of my booking via TripAdvisor so I arrived at the designated meeting point at 9am, with no one available.

    I managed to reach the owner directly and fortunately managed to arrange a flight later during the day.

    Conditions were OK for us to get in a flight but for those that are new to this sport, please note that flying is 100% weather dependant, so best to liaise with the flight instructors directly.

    Joined Knysna charters for a relaxing boat trip lead by Justin. He was extremely informative about the Estuary and my family and I left with a lot of new information! It was educational, comfortable, peaceful and entertaining. Highly recommend 👏

    Really good fun, something different if you ride a bike you can ride a monster scooter. A different way to see the forest. Good guides and safety

    Lovely oyster tour with Knysna charters, the wine and oysters tasted good but more important the crew was very friendly and enthusiastic, they had answers to all our questions.

    Certainly a must do while being in Knysna!

    A fun experience to explore a different side of Knysna - kayaking! We booked for an hour and it was the perfect amount of time to leisurely kayak around through the lagoon. If you're looking for an outdoor activity, that's not too strenuous, this is it. We even had some time to stop over for some pics 🤪

    This trip was well worthwhile.
    The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There were 5 couples on the boat, and although the sea was rough we felt safe.
    We were very lucky to spot a humpback whale with calf who breached several times for us.
    Also saw 2 different dolphin pods

    Was a beautiful experience. The team onboard were so helpful and considerate. Really went out of their way to may us feel comfortable and enjoy! Was the perfect day ant sea and were lucky to see some dolphins! The “lunch” was more of a snack but it was delicious and we had a great time.

    My friend and signed up for this tour relatively last minute and went in with no expectations. We left both with unbelievable memories that will last us a lifetime! Our guide, Stafford, was incredible-- professional, knowledgeable, and most of all, very personable. The small group atmosphere made for a memorable journey down the Garden Route that was able to be catered to our likes and interests along the way. The only complaint I have about this trip was that we only stayed for one night in each place! I am now dying to come back and do it again. This is a great intro trip for those who are new to South Africa (and those who are like me and are afraid to drive "on the wrong side of the road". We signed up for the four star accommodations and they were all great and places I would happily stay again.
