      Wonderful introduction to cape town
      Our guide, Armando, was very knowledgeable on all the sights and history of Cape Town. He’s very kind too and has a good sense of humor. I’d recommend this tour to anyone visiting for the first time!

      Interesting and informative
      Great tour. Robben Island was fascinating, and guide Luther made all of the arrangements. The same for the trip to the top of Table Mountain, including some history and natural context regarding the Mountain and nearby geographical formations. Had only one spare day in Cape Town; glad I took this tour.

      Can't tell you about the tour, operator cancelled without any notice...
      Can't say much about the tour, the operator cancelled my booking at 10h00 a.m. after spending 90-minutes waiting for the driver in front of my city centre hotel. No response to WhatsApp messages requesting an update. Voice calls ghosted. Received a template email apology stating they were overbooked (for a private tour???) and didn't have my contact details to provide the proper cancellation notice, despite corresponding by email that night before. Still waiting for a refund. What a joke. Had a great experience with 𝗨𝗽 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗗𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝗧𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀, go to them for your excursion planning. https://www.tripadvisor.co.za/Attraction_Review-g312659-d19426051-Reviews-Up_and_Down_Travel_Tours-Cape_Town_Central_Western_Cape.html

      No bookings made at the venues
      Our driver was nice, prompt and friendly. He picked us up at 7am at the hotel in Cape Town. When we got to the park we were supposed to be there at 7am and there was no booking for us. I managed to talk my way around the receptionist who did not want to let us go on the safari because we missed it. Terrible communication from the tour operator. We missed most of the breakfast because we were late arriving- not our fault or the drivers- it was the tour operators instruction. There was very little left on the buffet. They did not want to let us have lunch. Went to the winery and they had no booking for us there- had to talk them around as well. For the price you pay for this tour, you should not have to be negotiating with people for entry.

      Fab trip to Cape Town
      Luther was an excellent guide. He worked hard to make my day work for me. Luther was kind and considerate and I appreciated him being my guide. I found Robben Island to be a thought provoking visit and, for me, it was sad but it’s something that we should go to when visiting Cape Town, if only out of respect.l Table Mountain was outstanding and the views were amazing. Luther also took me on a tour of Bo Kaap, which was very interesting.

      1 Day in Cape Tow
      How was my 1 day layover in Cape Town? It was amazing. I was little nervous going to Cape Town, South Africa 🇿🇦 , because this was the first international trip by myself. I booked my ticket, researched Cape Town areas and reserved a hotel in Sea Pointe. I found a lot of tour options on Trip Advisor and Viator. I chose Zion Escape Tours because they offered private tours at a good price and had great customer ratings. Zion Tours communicated with me before my arrival. They confirmed my pick up location (Cape Town Airport) & gave me information about my tour guide. Upon my arrival in Cape Town, my tour guide Mazenga was on time to pick me up. He carried my luggage to our comfortable new suv tour vehicle, and off we went for a very fun day! I was tired, Mazenga walked me through a coffee shop and helped me with my first transaction in Cape Town, a coffee ☕️! Cape Town accepts USD and credit cards. While we drove to our first destination to see the penguins, we stopped along the way and saw beautiful beaches and colorful boat docks. Boulders Beach was great 👍 Mazenga and I entered immediately, we didn't wait in long line to get in. 😀 The penguins were so cute!! Next stop was Cape of good Hope. A beautiful drive and we saw baboons and ostriches along the way! Mazenga took great photos of me at Cape of good Hope. We had some extra time so we also stopped by Cape Point which was a very short drive and trolley ride up the mountain. You can see the Indian ocean and Atlantic ocean meet in the water. We had lunch on top of Cape Point - tasty grilled prawns! After our visit to Cape of good Hope and. Cape Point, we took Chapman's drive to our next destination. There were so many beautiful views of white sand beaches, a mix of red Sedona and heavy green foliage in the mountains. We took some pit stops for photos too! I took a little nap and by the time I woke up we were at Table Mountain. There was a large cloud on top of the mountain, when we were up top we couldn't see much but it was still very magical. Mazenga found some Dissis, a very cute little animal family on the side of the mountain. What an eventful day! Mazenga completed my tour by dropping me off at my hotel in Sea Pointe. Mazenga has a lot of good friends, we were waving and saying hello to a lot of other guides. Mazenga is a professionally trained and certified tour guide. He has lived in Cape Town for at least 10 years and is a father of 3 daughters. I had such a wonderful time. I plan to come back with my husband so we can experience the tour together with Mazenga again.

    An incredible & unforgettable tour of CT especially Bo Kaap where my 90 year old dad was born. Thank you for driving him to see the actual house where he was born, then onto the family home for 36 years (1955 - 1991) & also his old school. You made a 90 year old man very happy.
    Thank you Fiston, you are the BEST & I would recommend 100%!

    On arrival I was told that there were no ferries or cable cars operating so I would be refunded in full. I paid the tour guide for morning tour of part of Cape Town. No refund has been received and no response to my email.

    Our personal rep Armando was just great from the moment he picked us up until we were dropped off back at our hotel. Robben Island was very interesting and worth a visit. Armando took to a super spot for lunch and we had a luxury chauffeur driven tour of Cape Town before going up Table Mountain. No queues. Fabulous day and a great guide. Well done.

    We had an amazing day on our tour of Robben Island and Table Mountain. Everything went extremely smoothly, our tour guide messaged me the day before so we knew what to expect and was at our hotel at 8am to pick us up as agreed. Our guide, Mazenga, was very welcoming and friendly and took us to the Quay side for the boat to Robbin Island. All the tickets had been organised and sent directly to my phone so we were straight on the boat, Robben Island itself is fascinating and the tour is split into two parts, the first is on a bus where you driven around the Island and given the history, The second part is in the prison itself and led by an ex political prisoner who gives you personal insight to what life was like there. When the boat got back to the Quay Mazenga was there to meet us and took us to Cable Mountain via Bokaab, which is the Muslim area with brightly coloured houses. Once again Mazenga sent the tickets for the cable car to Table Mountain directly to me so we didn't have to queue for tickets and we were quickly on the cable car. The views from Table Mountain are spectacular and the floor of the cable car rotates so it doesn't matter where you stand as you'll still get an amazing view. Mazenga escorted us up on the cable car and then went down to meet us when we came down. We didn't feel rushed or hurried and could spend as much time as we wanted up there. All in all a really enjoyable day and everything ran really smoothly.

    We had a fantastic day touring Robben Island and then Table Mountain. A little mixup with the timing for the tickets to Robben’s Island made us readjust our schedule a bit but no issues with that. We just had breakfast before we went rather than lunch when we got back. Ellie was full of knowledge and accompanied us around the top of Table Mountain. At the end of the tour, despite it being over the allotted time, Ellie drove us through the city providing commentary to the different areas and suggestions for great food.
