The instructor also gave a lot of interesting information about other stuff which can be done in Cape Town and what you don’t find in the traditional travel advisor books. I can fully recommend Downhill Adventures for having a great time and fun and to learn surfing with success.Jan Dirk, reviewed September 2013
I want to take this opportunity to compliment you, your company but in particular two of your staff members. My granddaughter and I were treated to an absolutely fantastic and memorable occasion today (Sunday 3 June). I have often wanted to sandboard, both Gerry and Thys were the perfect hosts. These guys went out of their way to be friendly and efficient, to instruct, encourage and even help carry our boards up.Ian Tzamtzis, Cape Town – sandboarding
This was an unforgettable experience. I enjoyed this trip a lot. Matt is a fun guide and gave good explanation. Also, the views at Atlantis are magnificent!Kate, California USA – sandboarding
One cannot complain about experiencing the exhilaration of the ride in majestic waves of sand with a picturesque background of the beautiful Table Mountain! Definitely an incredible experience… The team was also efficient and friendly! – Thanks so much!Natasha, London U.K. – sandboarding

My name is Jeffrey Huang and I did the Full-day Surfing Adventure with Chris today. I’m just writing to say that I had an awesome time and Chris was a perfect guide.

We really enjoyed the outing.Benita Stramrood, Oracle HRMS Functional Support Parliament – Desert Experience
Yes I thoroughly enjoyed the course thanks, it was professionally run and conducted. I most enjoyed the hands on nature of the course in which we all got the opportunity to be physically involved with the outdoor activities. Mike was a first class guide and training instructor. He is very patient and always willing to go the extra mile for the trainees. Thank you, you guys have paved the way for my adventure guiding career.
Daniel Patrick – StudentGuide Training Academy
Our Team Building was a complete success!
The feedback received from our staff was phenomenal; our entire group had a wonderful time. We were collected on time, the activities was well organised, the energy and enthusiasm was high. Basically the whole day was a smooth process.
Everybody is still talking and laughing about it, as this was exactly what the Dr ordered.
So, thank you to the facilitators for accommodating us and we will definitely be keeping your information for future events.
