Although my husband and I were a few minutes late, Parinita waited for us. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. The walk to the different venues/sites were very nice. It rained and we had to take cover a few times, but it was really enjoyable. Parinita filled us in on a lot of things about Cape Town and we would recommend her and this tour to anyone and everyone because it is really well worth every cent.

Gilbert was easy to find after giving us clear instructions about
where to meet and greeted us like friends. We were keen to see the
real Cape Town rather than all the touristy stuff and Gilbert didn't
disappoint. He told us a lot about the history of the city drawing on
his own family's experiences, showed us interesting places we wouldn't
have dreamed of going without him, and we sampled plenty of local
food. A varied and interesting morning, shame it couldn't have been
for longer as we really enjoyed his company. A lovely, genuine guy.
Thanks Gilbert!

We were a bit unsure about booking a culinary tour, but after reading Gilbert's reviews we decided to go for it.
The experience turned out to be more than just a culinary tour as Gilbert gave us an insight into his personal experience and life in South Africa alongside an extensive culinary tour of authentic Cape Town smaller restaurants and hidden gems.

Gilbert is highly recommended!!!

On the 14 th of march we had the great pleasure of meeting up with Caley for a dsicovery of Capetian foods. Well, we discovered way more , we truly discovered how beautifull the local people of Capetown are. Caley was polite, well versed in the subject of food and general info about her beloved city, and had a great sense of humor. We had the most memorable day and just fell in love with the Mother city...

We booked this tour on a whim after reading the reviews for it and I am THRILLED we did!!!! Paranita was our guide and she was phenomenal! She took us to places within Cape Town that we would’ve never seen otherwise and introduced us to a side of her town that was otherwise hidden. She was so knowledgeable about the history of everything and always concerned about our happiness and well being! It was incredible to partake in the food as well as the sites!!!! Since we took the last time slot listed on TripAdvisor it was late in the day and several places were closed already but Paranita substituted others to allow us an authentic Cape Town experience nonetheless! We got 2 desserts, some delectable tea, some mussels, a huge Gatsby sandwich (SOOOO good!), Cape Town beer, and Bunny Chow (basically a literal half loaf of bread with chicken curry in it) - all unique and very good! Come hungry since you won’t leave that way! I highly recommend this tour, not only to eat some delicious food, but to immerse yourself in the culture and environment of such a beautiful place!!!!!

Kaye was so awesome and made this experience even better! It's like a walking tour of the city but with the best food! We saw places we would have missed touring the city on our own and her knowledge and passion for the city's history and culture added to the tour. It's a lot of food but there is also walking in between so you get a little break between tastings and you get to move some. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a different way to see the city. Communication was excellent and she made sure we didn't have any food allergy/dislikes before we met.

Very friendly informative guide Bhirdev, who incorporated into the tour a lot of information on the history of Cape Town.
Was nice to visit places we wouldn't have done without local knowledge and guidance.
