Lovely Experience and knowledgeable guides - Sandra

A truly remarkable adventure! From start to finish, our tour was nothing short of fantastic. Our guide was exceptional, blending informative commentary with genuine passion for the environment, making the hike both educational and enjoyable. The hike itself was a feast for the senses, with breathtaking views around every corner. The perfect length of the tour ensured that we could fully immerse ourselves in the beauty of the surroundings without feeling rushed. Overall, Featherbed Eco Experience exceeded our expectations, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as a must-do activity in Knysna. - Mr.

What a great morning we had from the moment we left the waterfront in Knysna until we returned. So much information shared with us but in such a welcoming and open way. The waterways and history along with the actual eco area of course. The boat trip and the walk with our guide through the forests and along the coast back to the shore was such fun and he pointed out so many things to us. I would definitely recommends it to anywhere but would take the first boat out in the morning if you can due to the heat. A great and memorable day. - Caroline

Intersting tour and walk, very good guide. - Peter

The bookings team was super helpful when I was having issues online. The outing itself was very well organised, the staff were professional and friendly. The boat trip across was lovely and the walk down was excellent we also had a very nice lunch at the Cruise Cafe on our return. Would highly recommend. - Melanie
