What Our Clients Say

Our highest good is the satisfaction of our customers. And they are also the ones who can give you the best picture of our service.

The founder and Angolan local, Joao, went above and beyond to make sure I had a great time in beautiful Angola — and man, what a time I had! It truly exceeded all the expectations I could have possible had, and his service was top notch. Just left and already hoping to come back again. Thank you for showing me the beauty and culture of your country!

ANDI - Destination Chaser

As a travel agent, we arranged a group of 16 different nationals to travel in Angola for 2 weeks with Joao and his miracle team. We have over 13 years’ experience in Africa and Pure & Authentic Tourism is THE best operator we have worked with in Africa. Joao is incredibly attentive, his attention to detail is always on point, and he does his absolute best to stay 2 steps ahead of the bureaucracy that you will no doubt experience in Angola. His knowledge and experience in his own country will make you feel that he is more of the President of the country, than just a brilliant man with a very well organised travel company. For an absolute unreal, down to Earth and authentic experience in Angola – you cannot go wrong with Joao and his team. Highly recommend.

We, six people, had booked an individual excursion in Luanda through Angola Tourism. The contact was super from the beginning. We were there with our cruise ship; the pickup went smoothly. We were on the road with two cars and three guides. Fernando, Felicio and Lando were very personable, always ready to answer our questions and give us lots of information. We felt safe and in good hands at all times. They showed us beautiful and authentic corners of Luanda, but also outside the city. It was a very nice day all around and definitely recommendable. I can't say anything negative about this day. It was a highlight on our trip.

Coming from Sao Tome to Portugal, I had to make a stopover in Luanda. Joe had packed up several day tours in one day at my request. I could visit Angola in one day with German travel quality. Unforgettable and beautiful. I will come again. Once again a very big thank you for this unforgettable day and great service.

We had a very great experience with Pure and Authentic Tourism. We traveled with them for a week around the country, we discovered very great places : Kalandula falls, Sassa cave, Kissama national park, ... The team had been fantastic with us, being very good hosts, beyond what we expected : providing lots of information about the different sites, adapting the trip to our needs, having water and snacks in the car,... Perfect! And they speak both English and French which was a big plus ! Joao, the owner, even made it for us to stay a extra day in Cabo ledo before our flight back, to relax at the beach. We highly recommend them if you plan on visiting Angola!

I was in Luanda for work and decided at the last minute to extend my stay for a week... I contacted Joao , the owner of Pure and Authentic Tourism, and in a couple of minutes he had a plan for the week set! Both the guides and Joao were very professional, flexible, knowledgeable and ready to answer my numerous questions ( ....). I arrived as a customer, but quickly they make me feel home and like a family member ....In 4 days we visited Kalandula falls ( staying at least a night at the Pusada overlooking the waterfall is a must do) , Pedras Negras, Quinca National park, had a boat ride up the Kwanza river, visited Sassa cave in Sumbe etc....Everything was well organized; food was great, the team flexible... Thanks to them My trip in Angola was simply great ( more than great in fact) , and I wish I had more time to visit more ! I hope to be back one day and will definitely contact Joao then! So many bad preconceived ideas about Angola are all over the Internet , but the reality is that Angola is a gem and I recommend every one to visit and to contact Joao and his team To really get the most out of it !

We had an exceptional experience exploring Angola with Pure and Authentic Tourism. Joao and his team are superb hosts, helpful and caring. He will work around your requirements and suggest an itinerary that will fit your needs. Be sure to pick up the phone (via WhatsApp) and speak with him when planning, he will address your concerns, and explain anything and everything. Joao's personality is a huge attribute - he has great social skills, which you can see when he's interacting with strangers (be it villagers or officials) and also with his clients. Simply put - we enjoyed his company. We received assistance and care before and after our trip. Joao will help if you have any questions with the eVisa process, and he continued to help when our luggage was lost and only found after our departure. We felt safe with him, he drove very well, and was caring but not overzealous. Be aware - Angola is expensive. Everything costs a lot, be it a simple hotel room or a meal, only fuel is inexpensive. Within that sphere, Pure and Authentic Tourism's prices are reasonable, but Angola is not a "budget" tourist destination. Thank you for the great memories!

Joao put forth maximum effort to make sure that we received both value and a quality experience. The country does not have a well-developed tourist infrastructure, but Joao did the utmost to deal with the inevitable hiccups. Angola is well-worth visiting, and I unhesitatingly recommend this tour company.

Ron Bergwerk

A truly 5 star experience. I highly recommend them. Wandy and Lando were absolutely amazing and we really enjoyed the tour of Kissama.

My company used Pure and Authentic Tourism in December for the first time. They were absolutely outstanding. Their company supported a 14 person operation for an entire week as we broke off into multiple elements throughout southern Angola. Their ability to maintain flexibility in the face of constant change, support us with translators when we needed it, and even assist us with financial concerns when our US bank stopped working proved to be invaluable part of our trip. The company is owned and managed by German-Angolan dual citizens who bring every bit of the famous German professionalism to bear. Their drivers showed up early every single day and were extremely professional around our client. Having locals that were able to negotiate military and police checkpoints prevented untold costs in both time and cash bribes. Having them around to assist with the day-to-day life in Angola prove to be critical to our success. When we were out of cell phone signal or operating at odd hours we were able to trust the P&A head office to maintain flawless communication with our corporate office in United States. The ability to place a request for a flight or hotel reservation and then disappear into the bush for several days at a time was incredible. We’ve conducted the similar mission in South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Africa, and the Congo, among others and this is by far the most capable transportation company I’ve ever use in Africa. All the managers speak perfect English, German, and Portuguese and they ensured that someone was always available to support us no matter the time of the day. I cannot speak more highly of their services. We will use their services for every future mission we have in Angola. It it my hope that they soon expand their form of services to surrounding nations soon!

Jose Huertas

We had the most amazing trip to angola! Joao and Ricardo were truly outstanding. In 3 days, we covered all of the highlights and this team made it happen. Hotels, food, sights, people - all beyond our wildest expectations.
