AS STATED IN REVIEW FOR FULL DAY GAME DRIVE. Before we left Australia we had booked 1 full day safari, the Panorama day tour and the Moholoholo and Heodspruit endangered species tour. Our first tour was the full day safari. It was freezing cold and rained all day......but we had a wonderful day. The guide (Suzette) was wonderful. She gave us lots of information on the animals, their habitat, the other animals that interacted with each one. She answered every question we had. We were so impressed with her that we booked another full day safari and a night safari hoping she would be taking us again, which she did. She was also our guide for the full day panorama tour. Again we cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from Suzette. By comparison the tour to the endangered wildlife at Heodspruit was the opposite. Francis was our guide on that tour. She hardly spoke to us on the way to or from the centre, spending most of her time on the phone. She sat away from us at the centre and offered no information. In fact she looked bored the whole time. If we asked a question we were only given the briefest of answers, mostly just yes or no. We were so disappointed in her that had we had her for our first tour (the full day safari) we not only would not have booked extra tours with Echo Africa, we would also have cancelled the other pre-booked tours. Suzette understood that as tourists we were thirsty for information and she provided it. We had fun on every one of the tours we did with her. We would gladly recommend her to our friends and family travelling there. The day with Francis, we were happy to get back to our accommodation. It is difficult therefore to recommend Echo Tours as there is no certainty of the guide chosen by you for any given tour. We cannot recommend a tour with Francis.
