I've been coming to Knysna for over 50 years and decided to take my family on a "tourist experience" - wow, we were not disappointed. From our experience on the boat, to our very friendly and informative guide, we had a wonderful day out. However, the most enjoyable part of it all was the world-class buffet lunch. Every single dish was mouthwatering! Thank you to every staff member involved - you make Knysna proud and we will certainly be recommending the Featherbed Eco Experience to all out friends. The Robinson Family. - Simon

What a phenomenal experience! This was our first time in Knysna and making the decision to go on one of Featherbed Eco Experience's was probably the highlight of our trip. The entire experience, including the lunch was absolutely worth every cent and I will definitely be recommending it to anyone looking to travel to Knysna in the future. - Dilaksha

The experience was very beautiful,Starting from the boat cruise until the lunch which was very delicious,Definitely coming back again - Nkhume

Excellent trip! We visited in April, the weather was wet but that made it all the more interesting. Our host Marius was fantastic, taking us on a historical and nature tour. The views are breath taking. The power of the sea is a sight to behold. Overall, money really well spent and will return when in SA next! Thanks, The Collins Family. - Mike

Nice relaxing walk with great views. Great meal at the end of the walk - Roelof
