          Interesting and informative trip. Excellent guide
          I thoroughly enjoyed the day I spent visiting Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope with my excellent guide Ivan. Not only did he show me the stunning scenery he shared his experience of post apartheid South Africa in a very personal way. I probably learned more from him than I did during the rest of my holiday. I managed to fall down some steps and bump my head whilst on this trip. Ivan could not have been more solicitous. He looked after me well.

          Personalised and interesting
          Our guide Bailey (Ne Ne) was brilliant. She really knew how to tailor the visit to our requests and her knowledge of Cape Town was informative, personal and really Interesting. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

        Tour included a Friendly hotel pick up and drop off at the ferry by Ivan to Robben Island and Return. Ounce there we boarded a bus for a tour of the Island and the tour of the prison was by a former inmate. I learned so much with first hand knowledge

        Ivan was great! Got us to the pier to get on the ferry and back..as well as show us around the area. One thing that impressed me is that he waited for us for when the tour was over!
        Contact him when you're in Cape Town...he is on time, prompt and courteous. You won't be disappointed!

        I booked the Robben Island Tour & was saddened when it was cancelled because of the sea waves & turbulence. Ivan quickly made other arrangements and provided a City & Table Mountain Tour instead. It was a wonderful day. I highly recommend this company.

        We had Ivan as our driver for the Robben Island Tour taking us from our accommodation to and from the V&A. Ivan is a fantastic, warm guy and was really interesting to talk to. He arrived on time and was waiting for us on departure, highly recommend. Thank you Ivan.

        A must-do tour while in Cape Town. The experience was very educational and moving, as well as efficiently run. I enjoyed the scenic boat ride also. It was a lovely sunny day. Thanks Ivan and team!

        Yves was an excellent tour guide and was punctual, with great knowledge of the Cape and Robben Island. I spent several days in Cape Town and called Yves for historical, garden and shopping tours.

        The driver picked us up early in the morning and dropped us to the ferry. The tour and transport was very well organized. The experience is a must in Cape Town for history and politics enthusiasts.

        Good morning ,

        I took the excursion for my solo trip in September 2023. Nothing to say, it was perfect. You can buy the excursion with your eyes closed. I recommend.

        Sincerely.
