TestimonialsA small sample of recent feedback from a few of the many happy customers we have serviced over the past 15 years.
As a university professor in the States, I used African Angel Tours to organize a three week trip to South African for 10 of my students. The broad itinerary was perfectly balanced, with impeccable transfers.
Meanwhile, our trip was complex.
During the days, our group conducted multiple days of field research in Alexandra Township, Johannesburg, with multiple research teams wandering the townshipwith community members. Luke and Lutendo managed our chaos with the perfect balance of flexibility and caution. The experience would have failed without their skill, patience and expertise.
At night, Luke arranged a perfect housing option that fit our budget and location far better than I could have imagined, let alone planned on my own. He also arranged genuinely authentic experiences, from unique lunch and dinner venues, to great nightlife that made us feel a genuine part of the city.
It could not have gone better. I’ve recommended African Angel Tours to multiple other groups traveling to South Africa, and they’ve all loved the experience.
Luke Angel and African Angel Tours have been pivotal in our development of a 3 ½ month Study Abroad Programme in South Africa for students at Eastern Illinois University.
Luke’s extensive contacts with volunteer programmes focusing on sustainable community support has been perfect in developing opportunities for human services experiences for our student. Luke has a keen understanding of the needs and requirements of an academic programme (as opposed to tourist oriented). He is resourceful, responsive, and ethical in every interaction.
I highly and completely recommend African Angel Tours to my colleagues and anyone needing assistance in programme planning in Africa.
It has been a pleasure working with African Angel Tours for the past 2 years. My first contact was with Luke Angel via phone. He was very friendly and said that I would meet his (ASSOCIATE) to let me know what Angel Tours could offer my organization. I met Andiswa Miza, and it was an instant connection. While professional, she was very warm and engaging. She took me and my husband on quite a few venue locations and each were impressive and to our liking based on the information I had given to her for our needs.
Andiswa located the ideal conference location for my needs for 60 individuals. From the airport pick up, touring the City of Johannesburg, to meals location, everything was superb! The drivers and tour guides have always been well-qualified and safe for our group, punctual and courteous when we weren’t! LOL!!
Since our first contract with Angel Tours, we have booked 3 other tours and are in the process of our 4th – all in just 2 years!
We would highly recommend Angel Tours to anyone who would like excellent personal service, safety and security! Thank you, Luke and Andiswa! You have a loyal customer in DREAM Girls for Life!!
Thank you for two wonderful tours on the beautiful continent of Africa! Both of my trips have been experiences of a lifetime. After I visited in December 2016, I knew that I wanted to come back! I just had no clue that the six of us would grow to 11 family members and close family friends, but a great time can’t be faked so others joined in!
As one of family members put it, we had a family reunion in our ancestral homeland. I appreciate the wonderful time that I’ve had from not just an entertainment perspective, but I was also enriched from an educational, cultural, political, and spiritual point of view.
I feel like I come back to the United States of America as more of a whole person, a better version of myself enriched by a deep cultural experience that will never leave you the same each time Ileave Africa.
Your staff is top-notch. I see them not as hired tour guides but more as friends. Thank you so much for the wonderful tour! As you guys say in South Africa, cheers!
We would like to thank you for the amazing vacation you and your team facilitated in planning for our family. Being accustomed to working at a Forbes Five Star Resort in Las Vegas we are familiar with delivering a Five Star experience as well as working with guests who expect this experience.
We can not be more grateful for your attentiveness, detailed planning and recommendations on where to stay and what to do. You and your guides, KG and Ebs we extremely friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating throughout the trip. You and your team gave our family a memory of a lifetime
We will recommend you and African Angel Tours to our friends and anyone else who may be interested in planning a trip to Africa. Truly Five Stars!!
From the moment I was picked up at the Cape Town airport until the minute I left, my time spent with Luke was as enjoyable and educational as possible. I couldn’t think of a better way to experience South Africa than in Luke’s conscious, gracious and easy company. He truly lives up to his last name.
Luke is one of those unique individuals: flawless in his professionalism, genuine to the core, interested and interesting. Anyone who is fortunate enough to know him would agree.
Let me start by offering a big thank you for all you and your team did to put our African trip together for us. Everything fell into place flawlessly and we had the most amazing time. I believe that we learned more during this trip than on any other travel experience we’ve had. From the gripping passionate feelings in Soweto and Robben Island to the majestic safari experiences and the powerful Victoria Falls, we were on an emotional roller coaster!
All along the way, the people in Africa were delightful; happy, courteous, helpful and well informed. Every driver, every tour guide, even the people in the immigration offices taught us something. And Ebriham, what a wealth of first-hand knowledge and a fantastic travel companion. We couldn’t have asked for more – our expectations were definitely exceeded.
Laura and I will be telling stories about this trip for years to come. I’ve already shared our itinerary with friends who are interested in a similar trip.
Without question this was one of our best vacations. We were a group of 16 and from the moment we arrived in Johanesburg, Luke and his team at African Angel Tours made us feel welcome. During our 15 day tour we explored Johanesburg, Cape Town, Zambia and Botswana. A few highlights included visits to the Apartheid Museum, Soweto, Table Mountain and Robben Island.
We saw the Big 5 at Kruger National Park. Hiked Victoria Falls and sailed down the Chobe River.
The team was incredible and their love of country, nature, and the animals is evident. Everyone at African Angel Tours is proud of what they do and it shows. Special mention to our guides Tefo and Arlene and to our drivers. This was a trip of lifetime. We are definitely doing future tours with Luke and his team.
