        Best tour guide Rodney
        My family were over visiting me in Cape Town and wanted to experience the real wine tour experience. We booked with cape archive tours and the service of booking and arranging transport was faultless! Our driver arrived on time for the tour in a lovely bus. Our tour guide Rodney was amazing. The whole way to the wine lands he told us history and facts about the city. He took us to different vineyards and we never felt rushed. We had the best day and Rodney made us laugh throughout it all and made sure to take plenty pictures of us!! Only 2 weeks later I done the same tour with my friends because I loved it so much and requested Rodney for the second time! As I had only done the same tour a couple weeks ago he made sure to switch up the vineyards to give me a different experience ! We also had a great time and met some lovely people!

        Kelvin was the star of our tour! He is an absolute gem! His knowledge and generosity gave us enormous insight to the Cape region and culture. His patience accommodated our mobility challenges! We had lovely deep philosophical discussions all while soaking in the awe-inspiring beauty of South Africa 🇿🇦 Top notch service from beginning to end!

        100% Recommended For a Great Day!
        We just finished our tour to the Cape of Good Hope with Xochitle from Cape Archives. What a great time we had! What initially caught our eye was a competitive price along with included admissions to the parks. The booking process was very easy with confirmation both via WhatsApp and email. Our guide, Xochitle arrived early to our hotel in a spotless van that was in excellent condition and very comfortable. The itinerary was just about perfect to make a loop of the Cape in an unhurried and relaxing manner. We saw all of the major western beach areas. We made a rest stop in at a small shopping center that consisted of small cafes, an organic food store and an incredible bakery. After our break, we went to the Cape of Good Hope both at the beach and up top at the lighthouse. We were given plenty of time to walk around and explore the area. We never felt rushed. Following the Cape, we stopped for lunch at a beach restaurant . Our reservation was prearranged and we were given a corner table overlooking the water. The food was good as was the service. This was really nice. Finally, we made our way into the penguin reserve and once again had enough time to explore and take photos at our leisure. Xochitle was incredibly hospitable and provided a great balance of information about the area without it being overwhelming. We would most definitely recommend Xóchitle and Cape Archives to anyone visiting the Cape Town area.

        Cape Town Tour
        Josie was an incredible tour guide and knew so much about Cape Town and the surrounding areas. She was extremely flexible with what we wanted to do and let us explore each attraction at our own pace. This is an amazing way to spend a day and see the coast line. We had a little extra time at the end of the day and Josie took us out of her way for one more attraction and even drove us to the airport to catch a flight! Thank you Josie you were the best!!!

        Our driver Peter was amazing, and we had a fantastic full day touring round the Cape peninsula, and managed to tick off all the important things to see and do. Many thanks.

        Highly recommended - best tour we have done
        Kelvin was by far the best tour guide we have ever had. He was so knowledgeable, friendly and patient with us. If you are coming to Cape Town on holidays looking for a trip full of multiple places with top service this is the company to go with. My wife and I could recommend the company any higher. It’s a must book if you are looking to check off a lot in half a day. I would also consider the private package as it really felt special for us. Thanks again to Kelvin for the unbelievable experience.

        We had an excellent trip with our guide Kelvin! He was very friendly and knowledgeable and the trip was everything we expected and more. Very safe and we saw some beautiful scenery and Kelvin explained all sorts of interesting facts about the places we went to. We also got to stop for a lovely lunch at Simon’s town. Seeing the penguins was a particular highlight. Would highly recommend and Kelvin in particular was great and made the trip for us.

        Excellent, Amazing, Fantastic!
        Booked Cape Archives for 2 day trips- Aquila Safari and Cape of Good Hope. We were accompanied by Rodney and he was simply AMAZING! Informative, detail oriented, kept our young children’s needs in mind with stops and entertainment. He was absolutely fantastic. I booked directly with Cape Archives and had such an excellent experience communicating with Xavier. The whole experience from booking to the end, was excellent and stress free. Definitely recommend Cape Archives for touring needs.

        Wine not try it with the chocolate!
        This was a lovely experience. Thank you to our tour guide Peter who really took the time to look after us and make sure we were well taken care of at each stop. My only advice is make sure you have a big breakfast in the morning and pack snacks, the restaurants are a little slow at getting food out and it wasn't possible to order a meal especially if you want to enjoy the full benefit of each wine stop! Lanzerac was a favourite and we would definitely recommend the chocolate pairing option!

        Great well organised and enjoyable day
        We had Mario as our driver for the day. Mario arrived early for our trip so he was ready and waiting when we were ready. Mario was throughout the day polite, friendly helpful and thoughtful. Unfortunately we were not able to drive chapnans peak due to winds closing the road. Mario did everything we asked and suggested some more eg ostrich farm. Maria was good company and chatty. cannot reccomend Mario highly enough.

        Boulders Beach
        An amazing half day tour to Boulders Beach. Thank you Kelvin, firstly for being such a lovely person and secondly for being such an informative guide, your knowledge on the history of Cape Town was superb, you are truly an asset to the Team. Bo-Kaap and the Penguins were my personal favourites. Most definitely a tour worth taking.

      Highly recommended! A must!

      Best time in Cape Town. The tour is well organized. Bus is a double decker most comfortable with wifi, USB chargers and toilet onboard.

      The hosts were fantastic Zuko and Justin just great. Keith the guide was absolutely wonderful. Highly professional, acculturated and funny. One of the best guides ever encountered.

      Cape Point is just breathtaking, the views are incredibile. Must do the walking trail from the lighthouse to the tip. It's slightly difficult on the way back if not so fit but it's plain beautiful.

      Boulders Beach is sweet. Need to pay 160rand per person to get in which on my behalf is too much. It's great to watch the penguins walk around though.

      This tour also passes by the towns of Muizenburg Simon's town and Fish Hoek.

      This trip was an amazing experience both candy and her driver pascal( spelling not sure) did an amazing job in ensuring we see as many places as possible and gave us enough time to enjoy each spot without being rushed. Candy went over and above to ensure our needs were met, and ensured that our safety was priority. Throughout the teip she gave us valuable information about sights that we visited and even those that were bit included in the itinerary
      She was really entertaining, friendly and supported throughout this long and eventful day. Thanks for making this Christmas eve special ;) would highly recommend to anyone who has limited time on CT and wants to experience the highlights of the city.

      We had an amazing, very full day exploring the Cape Peninsula on this tour and highly recommend. Our tour guide Kevin Basseko was incredibly knowledgeable and taught us so much about Cape Town and South Africa'a history along the way. You get to see the historic Bo-Kaap neighborhood, then the coastal suburbs with stunning views before entering the national park and reaching the Cape of Good Hope. Lots of flora and fauna along the way too. Finally the penguins in Simons Town were as cute as expected. We recommend buying the national park entrance fees online ahead of time, especially to skip the line at Boulders Beach to see the penguins.

      Very enjoyable day and very good guide. Only comment was that although the restaurant we visited, Les Saveurs, was very good we did spend rather a long time there as the service was not the fastest, half an hour for the coffee to arrive. Time could have been better spent on seeing things

      Excellent tour that takes you to the major tourist spots out of reach of the city center. The alternative I considered was taking City Sightseeing’s similar tour, but I’m so happy I went with Cape Archives Tours instead. Having a small group allowed us to adjust the schedule a bit to suit us best. Alain was fantastic! He pointed everything out as we passed by, was super patient and accommodating, and must have taken dozens of pictures for us everywhere. He also scheduled for making a stop at Muizenberg even though it wasn’t part of the itinerary, which I very much appreciated. Thank you so much Alain!

      Great day all around! Danson was a terrific guide, one of the best we’ve had for any tour! He was very informative, clearly very knowledgeable about all the different stops but also his wider experiences meant that on the drives inbetween he shared extra information and anecdotes, at the right level of detail. He knew all the tricks to ensure we got the best out of the tour and if that wasn’t enough, he became the entire tour’s, and anyone else who needed, personal photographer! Danson tailored elements of the tour to different members of the group, ensuring those of us who wanted to walk from cape point to the cape of good hope would have time to do so without impacting others on the tour. He was a safe driver and the vehicle was comfortable and had aircon. Danson is an invaluable tour guide and we would recommend any tour with him!

      This one day trip stops at all the sites of the peninsula - you will visit Hout Bay and the seals, Simon's town and the natural reserve with the penguins, all the beaches outside Cape Town (Clifton etc) The wonderful Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point and do the trekking in between (if you wish) which is amazing and spectacular. You will also visit Nordhoek a beautiful internal village. it is a little pricey if you do everything but I strongly recommend it. It takes the whole day starting early (before 8 am) and finishing after 6 pm with a visit at BoKaap within Cape Town. our driver and guide Rodney was wonderful! gave us a lot of everyday knowledge about CT and the region, about S. Africa, was punctual, professional, polite, just amazing!

      To be fair, the tour covers much more than the title. Thanks to Candice, you’ll know a lot about the history of Cape Town and its surroundings, including bgeography, history, biology and so on. Of course penguins are remarkable and great to see, especially when so close from your eyes, but there’s much more! I definitely recommend it, especially when traveling with Kalvin - such a great driver and one knows much about African people and their history - and Candice, who is officially the best guide I ever travelled with. One thing to note is that everyone in the spots know and like them as well, and they make a great effort to show you a lot of curiosities about the place as a whole.
      For the places we’ve visited, I would say you should do the hiking in the cape of good hope for astonishing views and take a time to see great stone art right before the cape national park entrance.
      For me, this tour is highly recommended specially when you don’t have much time to spend on the tourist attractions and wanted to see and know much more than the average

      We enjoyed the day we spent with Candice and Mabee (apologies if the spelling is incorrect).

      Candice was very clear with her communication from the moment we booked. They arrived to pick us up from our accommodation and were cheerful and informative.

      There were 3 other couples in the minibus and we were all asked to respect each other's timings so that the day ran smoothly. Candice interacted easily with everyone so that the group was soon chatting together, which is nice when you're in a confined space for the day!

      We were slightly unlucky with the weather so we didn't see the Cape peninsula at it's best and, the much awaited Chapmans Peak drive was, sadly, closed but, Candice kept us occupied for the whole day with interesting stories and facts.

      This was a full day, with just the right balance of stops to see the highlights and just the right amount of time spent at each.

      We enjoyed that we could choose whether we wanted to walk up to the Cape Point lighthouse or take the funicular.

      Candice is a mine of information, which she delivers very naturally and Mabee drove us around very comfortably.

      So far, our day trip has been the highlight of our holiday. We are happy to highly recommend Candice and Mabee and would definitely book them for some of the other trips they offer if we were staying longer.

      Thank you both for a lovely day 😊

      Being the first pick up at just after 7am made this a long day but we enjoyed it immensly and got to see a lot of stuff we'd have otherwise missed.
      Our driver/guide was Jeremy - very informative and always on hand to take photos.
      I can only echo what others have said about the scenery etc so will just add a couple of negatives - if any of your party do the 40 minute trip to Seal Island there's not a lot to do whilst you're waiting for them. We stayed too long in Simons Town, there wasn't a lot to do there once we'd browsed the shops.

      Those 2 negatives apart I'd highly recommend it
