          Great tour with good value for money and time
          I did the 4-5 hour penguin viewing and Cape of Good Hope tour. It was a short but efficient tour. Our tour guide, Gordon, was very entertaining and explained the sights along the way. If you don't want to hike the Cape of Good Hope, I highly recommend this tour.

          Holy moly what an amazing experience! Hermanus is known for their whale sightings and this tour did not disappoint! Jean-Nepo was our guide and he was so thoughtful and so considerate. I actually had an issue trying contact another tour company and he tried to get in touch with them using his own phone bc mine only worked on wifi! We were picked up and dropped off from our hotel! We had waters and got to see whales and experience two amazing wineries!

          A wonderful enjoyable wine tasting experience.
          The tour guide Gordon was on time, very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. The wine facilities visited were a good choice with a wide variety of products, and the personnel were all extremely knowledgeable of their wines. I would strongly recommend Gordon to anyone visiting Cape Town South Africa.

          Excellent despite the weather
          Our holiday was overshadowed by a spell of wintery, wet weather. This tour however lifted our spirits and enabled us to see a good amount of the cape peninsula. Sylvie (the tour guide) and Zeno,the driver (sorry if this is wrong) were both excellent. They were very attentive. Sylvi's knowledge of the area was great and she was able to give us many stories and information in a humorous way.When we could go up Table Mountain (because of the weather) she offered an alternative. Thank you to both of you and we would definitely recommend this tour.

          It was an incredible experience!
          It was an incredible experience! Our driver/ guide, Djiby aka Gabriel, collected us on time from our hotel and we spent a lively 2 hour+ drive to the Aquila Game Reserve. He walked us through the entry process and ensured that we had our sumptuous lunch. Additionally he oversaw our boarding the safari vechild and was waiting for us when ee returned. It was a wonderful and awe inspiring day. Seeing the animals in their natural habitat was exhilarating! The wide open savannah with the free roaming animals against the majestic mountain back drop was a highlight in our life that we will never forget. EVERYTHING WAS WELL DONE!

          Excellent way to cover a number of iconic sites in the greater Cape Town region if you are short on time. Would highly recommend. Buy the cable car ticket online as per pre-tour confirmation email to save time.

          Great tour!
          We had a great time on our private tour with Djiby! We visited many interesting and beautiful locations around Cape Town, including the cape of good hope and the Africa penguins at boulders beach. The penguins were adorable! Djiby is a great guide: smart, easy to talk to, engaging, and full of useful information. We would highly recommend!

          Made the best of bad weather
          The weather was really crummy and a few parts of the experience were partially or fully closed. But that aside, a shout out to Kagabo for doing what he could to show me around and make the best of it. And the sun poked through for a few minutes right at the penguins, which was what I wanted to see most :). I'm sure during better conditions, this will be even better, and I definitely recommend.

        A great day was had by my travelling companion and I. It was well worth the extra money we paid for such a personalised tour that was adapted for our needs. Our guide, who was very knowledgeable provided us with informative, as well as, anecdotal stories related to the picturesque coastline and the Cape itself. He was extremely organised and took care of everything associated with the tour. All we had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy. The glorious weather on the day also enhanced the experienced. Wonderful sightseeing and one of our best days in South Africa. Would certainly recommend this tour to others.

        We had a great time with our guide Marshall and our group! He made sure we were on time to places and efficient! The Chapman Peak drive closed at 10am so our driver made sure we made it! Very glad! We had a few people that were not present and I would highly recommend you cancel if you cannot make it but check your email the day before to see the time and the guides name so you know when the pick up will be. The tour starts at 9am but all pickups are earlier! Also, have cash for the boulders beach and the Cape Point. Although there was an ATM in Simontown just across from the Parking lot. I had a desire to see Kalk bay or a view of muizenburg beach colorful huts and our guide would have done that for a photo stop but it was out of the way and more traffic so we instead got to see Bo-kaap and walk around at the conclusion. And time to buy spices there too. They give you one bottled water also.

        The penguin colony was as good as anticipated and the Cape tour a must see.

        Trip was exactly as advertised. All stops including pick ups went like clockwork. Thoroughly enjoyed the itinerary but what made the trip extra special was our guide Tresor. He gave lots of historical,local and anecdotal information which for us what brings the people and cultural of South Africa to life. Would thoroughly recommend this trip especially with Tresor as your guide.

        James was a fantastic guide who went above and beyond to make sure everyone on the tour was happy and cared for. He is smart, funny and knowledgeable about the places we visited and just put the entire group at ease from the start of the day.

        Doubling as driver and tour guide, James still doesn't miss a beat in telling you all about the places you are passing as well as the places officially on the route. He makes sure to stop at wonderful lookouts along the way giving you beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding areas.

        The tour is extremely well paced and I never felt like we spent too much - or too little - time at each place. I've been on many day tours in my life and that is no easy feat. Yet James makes it feel effortless despite having to wrangle different people, with different wants and needs and of all different ages.

        If you are in Cape Town there is no doubt in my mind that you should absolutely book this tour.

        Everything about this tour was fabulous. The pickup, the guide, the other people, the drive, the lunch, the scenery, the wildlife, the attractions and even the rainy weather were outstanding. Gordon our guide was the perfect host and chief information officer providing knowledgeable stories and interesting facts throughout the tour. We had to exclude Table Mountain from the itinerary due to cloudy conditions but Gordon filled in with other memoranle destinations and sights. We encountered penguins, a whale, ostriches, gazelles and baboons on our travels. We ate at Black Marlin restaurant where we dined like celebrities. The vistas and viewpoints were breathtaking alonh the coastal drive. Gordon made us feel welcome the whole time and we left energized and enthused about this beautiful slice of Africa, Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope. We even got to enjoy the splendor of a magnificent full rainbow across from the lighthouse.

        My young adult daughter and I were part of a group guided by Sylvia, and driven by a gentleman whose name we don’t remember unfortunately. We thought the trip was very interesting with several highlights, such as a boat trip to Seal Island, Cape of Good Hope, the lighthouse nearby, Boulders Penguins Beach, and Bo-Kaap in Cape Town. Sylvia is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable on Cape Town and the Peninsula, she has provided a lot of interesting anecdotes about the places we visited and others we saw on the way. Sylvia is a caring person, always thinking about the needs and expectations of the guests, she has a positive and outgoing personality, and a lot of sense of humor :-) We had a fantastic time and strongly recommend the trip, the guide, Sylvia, and the driver to other groups!

        Wonderful tour guide and driver Treasure gave us a fantastic experience- he was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of interesting historical and cultural information as we travelled. He was also like our personal photographer :) which is especially nice when travelling as a couple!

        The tour itself was great- the most beautiful scenery along the way with lots of great photo stops, many things to see, enough time at each stop (although I could have spent much longer at Cape Point nature reserve) and comfortable transportation with not too many people so it still felt intimate.

        We stopped for a very pleasant lunch at the end and this was a perfect way to round off the busy day.

        I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see a lot of Cape Town in just one day, especially if you love nature and beautiful coastal views.

        This tour was an absolute wonderful experience! Braiiden (driver) and Reagan (guide) even made the drive around Cape Town collecting (and dropping off) the clients loads of fun. Reagan learned everyone’s names immediately which made the entire tour much more personable. We had some challenging weather at first, and his positive attitude and sense of humor. allowed us all to enjoy the trip to the maximum. From history lessons to wildlife discussions, it really couldn’t have been better day. And lunch was AWESOME!! So many hot tips for places to eat and fun things to do in the area. We were collected very early and dropped off late in the afternoon which made for a long, very fun day. The value is off the charts with this one so highly recommended!

        My Family and I had a wonderful day tour with Shafiek, the Tour Guide/Driver.
        We learnt so many interesting facts of Cape Town and on the smaller cities on the drive to and from Cape of Good Hope/ Cape Point.

        Wished we had used Sharfiek prior on other city tours we did during our weeks vacation in Cape Town. We recommend this company as well as Sharfiek as he was very patient and went out of his way to assist someone on the group tour that was not feeling well.
