          Terrible tour guide, great tour route
          The places we visited in this tour were fantastic. However our tour guide, Roland, was absolutely terrible. First after we had picked everyone up and started the tour he got a call that other customers were still waiting. This was a combination of him not confirming everyone by name at each pick up and the agency didn’t send him the full list. So we went back for two more people and started the tour over an hour late. Second, his commentary was often inappropriate and inaccurate to the point where several of us agreed to ask him if we could just listen to the radio instead and enjoy the sites. (He said we could not and we didn’t want to push). Third, he got too close to a cyclist on a tight road against a cliff who screamed profanities at us as we passed. And finally, and in my opinion worst of all, he did not communicate effectively about how to adapt the tour given the initial delay and instead declared that we could not have lunch and could try to get food at another stop later on. When I said that’s not acceptable and that we needed food he said something to the effect that he was also hungry but we’re all making sacrifices so that we could make it to Table Mountain. Finally he did agree to pull over so we could get sandwiches. And he took us to a place that had no sandwiches only potato chips. I did get to Table Mountain and felt dizzy from being hungry so we just went straight to eat. I’ve never written such a strong review before, but this man should not be a tour guide.

          First trip to S Africa
          This is an experience of a lifetime. Our guide Djiby Mbaye is knowledgeable and very patience with us. Cape Peninsula has so much to offer and we exceeded the time allowed on all our stops. He is understanding and accommodative. We spent 2.5 hours at Cape of Good Hope alone. I would highly recommend private tour if you want to go at your own pace, like we do. Djiby even gave us a bonus stop at ostrich farm.

          Great day with Gordon!!
          Gordon was our guide and arrived with a great attitude, despite Trip Advisor not forwarding the updated pick-up address. He touched base the evening before, and since we had done a couple of the suggested itinerary items, we were able to substitute in a couple other fun things instead. He knew exactly where to go, and had reasonable time suggestions at each stop so we could fit in everything we wanted to see and do. He did a super job getting to know each member of our 6-person group, and was VERY understanding with my mom, who is 80 and has some mobility issues. By the end of the day he felt like part of the family! I’d definitely recommend this tour option, and highly recommend Gordon as your guide!!

          Perfect introduction to Cape Town!
          Great tour! Jean was a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable, and excellent at adjusting the schedule due to weather changes. We had a really good overview of the peninsula. Highly recommended!

          Overall great experience at Cape Town during this Tour! You’ll cover so many things in 1 day
          Gordon, my tour guide, was extremely good during the whole trip. Very Knowledgeable, friendly, and fun person to go on this tour with. My respect to people like him that are passionate for what they do on a daily basis, it brings more fun & joy into the trip. Highly recommend this, if you’d like to cover most of the highlights in Cape Town. Gordon definitely made my trip memorable.

          Excellent Tour
          Excellent tour and very informative. Comfortable transport and our guid was very knowledgeable and some of the views were stunning. As it was a private tore the pace was relaxed and chilled and the options were there for extra excursions like to seal island. Highly recommended.

          Easy, fuss free and comfortable private tour
          Christian was our driver and guide, he was very knowledgeable and shared with us many stories and facts about the locations that we visited. My wife and I were driven around in a very comfortable SUV. I would recommend this tour especially for couples who want to cover a few key attractions in a day without having to squeeze with others. Started the day at 8am and we were done around 5 :)

          Good introduction tour.
          Tommy, our guide was wonderful. We were 8 total in the van on our tour. It was a day filled with great visiting sites. This is a great tour if you are short in time or like to have good introduction of Cape town. Didn't care for the restaurant we stopped for a lunch.

          Peninsula tour with extras!
          A fantastic day out. Booked at group tour but got a private one as we were the only bookers. Djiby was a perfect guide, arrived right on time, very knowledgeable, was completely adaptable to our requests and made a few extra stops. Our final day in Cape Town was one of the best, superb.

          Well worthwhile if a little challenging at times
          It’s a sobering and entirely worthwhile experience visiting Robben Island. We know that Nelson Mandela and so many other political activists were cruelly imprisoned on Robben Island and other prisons during the Apartheid era, but to see the actual prison conditions brought me up short. The deliberate oppression is startling to see a glimpse of. South Africa has come a very long way since those days, which is wonderful.

        Everybody goes with the expectative to see the great white shark (as they advertised) but I’m pretty sure that this is almost impossible due to the continuous trips they make on a daily basis to the same spot area ; sharks must be already bored ! ; but….this is something the crew/staff never will tell you, because if they tell you that the white one’s can be seen once in a life time….they won’t have the huge demand they already have for the tour ; business marketing at the end, but what is for sure is that the white shark experience is over advertised by them and this is not completely true…
        The staff, the crew, the installations, the equipment, the attention, etc ; is quite friendly & professional ; this is what really makes the experience unforgettable ! ; otherwise you can see common sharks at many aquariums for quite less money.

        Had a fab experience. Very friendly and professional team. Welcoming and ethical. Only thing that could be improved is using snorkels? instead of having to hold breath to dive but really amazing all the same! Thanks
