plus - Safety Tips for travelling in South Africa
South Africa airports are open for International flights from 1st OCTOBER
Covid–19 – your safety & our Codes of Practice
Hermanus has (since the 1850’s) been prescribed by Harley Street doctors of London, for offering visitors delightful “Champagne Air” – with clean, refreshing, un–polluted seaside air and crystal clear coastal atmospheres – with huge sandy beaches, 100s of hiking trails and massive mountain ranges to explore.
Below are the safety measures that you can expect from us when you arrive on holiday to Hermanus and Cape Town.
Upon meeting your Chauffeur / Tour Guide at your collection point (Airport or hotel) – we will offer you the following hygiene and health protection items –
ALL groups will be isolated – we will NEVER mix’n’match groups – – in other words you (and your family) will have a vehicle exclusively – we will never bolt another person or group to your transfer or tour – you will have your own exclusive space

NB. These protocols may change according to Govt guidelines and international practices
We wish you an amazing holiday to incredible Hermanus (and beyond….)
Very many thanks – from your travel and tours company – highest regards, the Percy Tours team 😃👍
If you were holidaying or even living in, New York or Sydney or London or any place really, would you go to the shops to buy a newspaper with an expensive camera around your neck, with a pile of cash in your pockets, while wearing expensive jewellery? NO, should be your immediate answer.
When travelling anywhere, it is very wise to take a small rucksack with you that contains the barest of essentials. Hide your cameras in there, your wallet, money and mobile phone; never take with you your passport, airline tickets or such like. If you look like a million dollars then you are sending signs to everyone that you are worth mugging, so basically don’t do it unless you want unwanted attention.
The simple answer to it all is – always go out with what you can afford to lose.
After all we all know what a meal and a few drinks will cost, so why go out with 10 times more than that in your pockets? Credit cards are taken everywhere in South Africa.
Anyone standing on a street with a large map flapping in the wind is also sign-posting that they are a tourist and a lost tourist too! Just simply go into the nearest shop and ask the shop-keeper for directions.
It is Percy Tours company policy to always accompany clients, who are on tour with us in South Africa, around all the cities and towns that we go to. We also orientate clients within those locations before we drop them off, so that they are always well aware of their surroundings and where to go safely.
As you will be in Percy Tours constant care while on holiday you will not be driving, but if you ever have to drive on the roads, please be aware of a few things.
And remember – a Smile goes a million miles. Especially when you can’t understand or speak the local languages - thankfully ALL South Africans speak the international travelling language of English.
