We visited Hermanus with the hope that we might spot a whale - and we did. Okay, it may only have been the fins and the blow-spout but it was a real privilege to see these creatures in the wild. Hermanus itself was a very pretty little place, with eateries abounding and a lovely little coastline.

Whales breach 5 times when they do. Get your camera ready! This little town is adorable. Easy walking, great whale watching, boutique shops and spotlessly charming. An excellent town to visit.

We went as a group to Hermanus with the sole intention of whale watching from the shores of Walker beach. That was towards the end of November. Sadly, we did not manage to catch a glimpse of those gentle giants of the deep. We were told November is the end of the season for whale watching, unless you want to... More

Can't thank Neels enough for the tours he took us on during our stay in the Cape. On so many levels it was a fabulous experience. Both of us agreed that we really got to know the Cape more so than if we had gone on “ordinary” sightseeing tours. Neels' depth of knowledge and the interesting places we were taken... More

Following a recommendation we first booked Hermanus Day Tours 2 years ago for all our touring and travel arrangements in the Garden Route, Winelands and Cape Town area. Neels made this such a special trip that we have since returned for 2 successive Xmas holidays in the Western Cape. Helpful, courteous and incredibly knowledgable about all aspects of his country's... More

When I was visiting South Africa in February 2011 I was so lucky to go on a trip to Aquila Game Reserve with Neels - he's been the best guide ever!!!! He can tell you so much about the wildlife, history, culture etc. I absolutely enjoyed the excursion and immediately decided to go on another tour to Capetown the next... More

We were keen to visit Fernkloof Nature Reserve just outside Hermanus, and when a guest where we were staying told us about her visit with Bill Robertson and gave us his phone number, we contacted him the next day. Fortunately Bill was able to fit us in during the afternoon. If we had tried to do this on our own... More
