        Excellent
        Excellent. Our guide, Mr. Stuart, was punctual, polite, and offered us options to stop for a small meal and shopping. The vehicle is comfortable and safe. We think the price is fair for the quality of the service provided.

        Fantastic half-day tour
        This was a wonder tour, and we really enjoyed our time with Stuart, who is a fantastic guide. The activities were well selected; it was fun and adventurous, but a nice pace. The views from the top of the mountain were amazing, and it was a great way to get a taste of ‘Cape Town’ without the need to travel too far. We definitely recommend this for a couple or adults-only trip.

        The best bush experience
        What a great experience on a hot summers day! We weren’t expecting to see much as it hasn’t been raining too much and assumed that the animals would be hiding in the shade where they could find it, but much to our surprise the animals were up and about enjoying the day just like we did! The tour operator, Stuart, was excellent in spotting animals, which added something extra special to the tour. He also took us to a hide where we got out of the vehicle and we saw an entire herd of elephants grazing! Would definitely recommend as a lovely family day out. What an amazing day.

        Fun
        Had a wonderful experience. First we visited Hartbeespoort and viewed the beautiful scenery from atop the mountain (we used the cableway to the summit). Then we had a relaxing & splendid wine tasting experience. Our 'tour guide' Stuart Crous was very pleasant and fun to be around.

        Amazing experience
        What an amazing experience this was! My fiancé and I love going on unique dates and this was definitely our cup of tea (or should I say, “our glass of wine”). Stuart picked us up from our home in such a neat vehicle with complimentary water and great conversation. We were taken to the cable way where he made sure we had our wrist bands and stayed with us until we were on our way up. We were met at the top with spectacular views, delicious food and ice cold drinks which is exactly what you need on a hot day. Once we were finished, Stuart met us at the bottom with an airconditioned car, waiting to take us to the wine tasting, where he organized everything, all we had to do was sit back and enjoy, in fact, we enjoyed it so much that we bought 3 wines to enjoy at home and reminisce on such a wonderful experience. There was nothing better than going on a date without having the hassle of all of the admin. If you are looking for a romantic, stress free date, this is the one to book! 5/5 would recommend!

      My experience was amazing. High winds caused the balloon trip to be canceled the night before. While we were disappointed not to be able to take the ride, Stuart offered to provide an alternative itinerary for us so that we were not stuck in our hotel for a day on short notice. The options he provided were awesome for our family and he gave us the highest quality tour of some of the Jo-berg highlights on the way to our destinations.

      I highly recommend his company and hope to get that balloon ride in the next time I am in town.

      Super nice balloon ride with sunrise and a nice view of the valley. The balloon skipper explained during the trip how to fly it. Afterwards there was a delicious breakfast with champagne. Stuart picked us up at the hotel and right from the time we booked the trip there was good contact and communication with him. We can only recommend the trip and the company.
