What people say…



Plett is the Best. Been holidaying there for more than 30 years. AND ..AND… Your website is so beautiful and fresh.

Just a word of thanks and congrats on a great evening at the White House yesterday. Gill and I thought that the entire presentation and programming was inspired and excellently executed. Must be a feather in the cap of Plett Tourism or should I rather say:  Getting in touch with the Feeling in Plett!!

Dear Ms Butterwoth

I wish to express my sincere gratitude for making this journey come through. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the management of CemAir for their commitment in supporting local entrepreneurship and promoting tourism.

Lastly I wish to convey a word of appreciation to the Tourism VA and Cindy in particular for her continued support. I so wish that you and your team continue with the work that you doing. It is a matter of time when you will reap the fruits of your labour and when that day come and look back, that is when you’ll realize that changing lives is no overnight task and you will be proud of the inputs you’ve made in the lives of many in our beautiful town.

I got the ticket in good order and looking forward to my first flight with CemAir our own pride.

I just wanted to thank all 3 of you for all your efforts. I am greatly impressed with Plett Tourism and Municipality! You are all fantastic. You are honestly making me think about relocating from Knysna to Plett!!

I would like to compliment Plett Tourism on the splendid work they do. Plett has changed dramatically, for the better, in the past two to three years with many more social events taking place, mostly through the efforts of Plett Tourism. Well done everyone. Keep up the good work.

Well done on an absolutely sensational show. We were blown away and absolutely thrilled with the success of the show. To see how much it has grown since last year is quite amazing. Well done and thank you for all the hard work.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous evening last night at the Festival – a really great night out. The Whitehouse was packed with a hugely enthusiastic audience who revelled in the movie, the food and the entertainment. Reza was also a huge hit and he ‘worked’ the room all evening – when he wasn’t rolling his sleeves up and getting stuck in with the catering – amazing! All involved can be justifiably proud – a great success all round!

I’ve always been content with G-town National Arts Festival. It is time for change.

I absolutely applaud Plett Tourism and the way they have put Plett back on track. Knysna and Plett are indeed SA’s best playground (after Cape Town), offering a wonderful lifestyle, and not plagued by insecurities and other big city syndromes.

What a super newsletter. Thanks.

As an absentee homeowner with a gorgeous house that we get to quite a lot, can I just congratulate you all again on a really good ‘promotional newsletter’. Content and appearance is excellent.  I am sure you are succeeding wonderfully in getting the activity-minded tourists in and giving fresh ideas on what Plett has to offer. Hope it is getting huge circulation. All the best.

We were fortunate enough to spend three weeks over Christmas and New Year in Plett and not once in my 22 years in South Africa have I been so deeply impressed by a community as yours… that teamwork is taking place between residents and municipality, to make Plett a special place and to cherish and treasure what nature has given to this amazing part of South Africa.
