Dirk’s knowledge of South Africa, his expertise, his attention to the smallest detail and his personal attention to us, at every stage of the journey, ensured that our experience of South Africa was one of extreme pleasure and depth leaving us feeling that we understood a little of this vast and wonderful country.
My name is Peggy Chen. I am from Taiwan. I came to Stellenbosch to attend my doctoral graduation ceremony in late March 2017.After my graduation ceremony, I had a tour around the Cape Town area. Dirk took me on the Full Day peninsula Tour He is a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide.Being an ex-Teacher of History and Geography himself, he provides detailed knowledge of the sites he took people to. After I went back to Taiwan, my country, at times I still think of the tour Dirk did for me.
We greatly enjoyed our tour with Dirk. He took great care to understand our interests, and as a result, we got to visit some beautiful and fascinating places which otherwise we could not have discovered or reached. Dirk is a friendly guide, who was very happy to share with us his personal experiences.Hope that hits the spot! Very cold in the UK at the moment, so nice to remember the warmth of Stellenbosch!
We were really happy to have him as a guide, because he gave us a lot of information about the history and the social changes of South Africa. His knowledge about the animals was also outstanding. As a former geography teacher he also could tell us a lot about the geological and historical development of the landscape.
On January 2015, my wife and I decided to spend two weeks in South Africa. We flew from Paris to Cape Town and stayed for the a couple of nights at Green Point in the Bluegum Hill Guesthouse.We had no special plans for our stay.Talking with the owner of our guesthouse, she recommended us to take Mr Dirk Joubert as a guide.Mr Joubert immediately organised a tour for us on the south coast : Hermanus, Mossel Bay, Jeffreys Bay , Kirstenbosch garden, the vineyard road with wine tasting and many other places. Very pleased with our first visit in South Africa, we came back on November 2016 and once more asked Mr Joubert to organised our stay this time on the west coast of Cape Town area . We had a room at the Wintown Lagoon Hotel in Langebaan.Mr Joubert showed us the Koeberk Science Centre (a nuclear power plant and its exhibition of the various electrical energy productions) Then we visited the West Coast National Park, Paternoster (picture attached) and many other places. His availability, his knowledge of geography and history , his sense of humour and intelligence make of Mr Joubert a precious guide that we recommend to our friends who want to travel to South Africa. We think to call on his services once more for our next trip planned the Kruger National Park.
Hoyce and I had the opportunity of enjoying the tourist and driving service of Dirk in two occasions in 2014 and 2016.He took us around in Cape Town region to visit different touristic sites, including unknown ones.Dirk is very knowledgeable of the region and can satisfy all kind of curiosity, from classical sight-touring, to shopping, to food and “ordinary life” places. On our request he even took us to 2nd-hand-car showrooms or to specialised clinics.Dirk is reliable and of very pleasant company; he is supported by his family, to the point that his son or his wife are available to take you around with or without Dirk, always in a very welcoming and friendly attitude.We come from distant places (Italy and Tanzania) but can truly acknowledge the professional and friendly service provided by Dirk.I would not hesitate to recommend his service to friends and companies.
We were a party of 4 from UK, & asked DJ Tours & Safaris to provide a bespoke tour for 3 days at the end of a trip to South Africa. Dirk went to a lot of trouble to ascertain exactly what we had seen & what we would like to do, settling on a scenic drive to Stellenbosch, a lovely wine tour, and finishing with a trip to Paarl rocks & a braai. Unfortunately the weather curtailed the last day, but Dirk had a plan B, with Hermanus. Nothing was too much trouble for Dirk, who has extensive knowledge of his home country, particularly the fascinating geography.
Dirk, please accept our sincerest heartfelt thanks for the recent AAESS trip.Just by following the day-2-day post and photos on facebook was more thanenough to make us jealous, yet also thankful that our kids had this once ina lifetime opportunity to experience beautiful South Africa.Now that they are back, they haven’t stopped talking about their trip,evidence that they truly had an awesome time.The excursions, accommodation, travel arrangements and of course the SouthAfrican food was organized in a manner that touches perfection.I don’t think you realize what a huge impact this trip had on our kids andthis is in principle due to your company’s planning and effort.Once again, thank you and we wish you and DJ Tours & Safaris all the bestwith future projects and tour groups.
Dirk was recommended to us. We were with a group in Cape town and had seen the popular sights already twice. So, we wanted something different. We wanted to see the West Coast. Dirk was very accommodated and showed us around. Not only his knowledge of the flora and fauna was amazing, but he also knew to find the animals. Besides that, he knew a lot about the villages and its history we passed and visited. We had a beautiful and memorable day. So, if you are looking for someone who knows SA on his thumb then Dirk is the one you need to contact.
Dirk certainly was a fantastic host, tourguide, minder, even mediator! We became good friends and our last night in Cape Town Dirk and his lovely wife invited us for a fab meal, and B/B and then drove us to the airport the next day! All a very memorable experience and a wonderful stay in South Africa.
