Eon, our tour guide with Explore Sideways, literally made our honeymoon trip to Cape Town. He was a gracious, accommodating, informative, attentive, funny and entertaining guide. His comforting, approachable and good natured manner made us feel like we were visiting a friend from out of town. Further, his deep knowledge of wine and winemaking was unique and helpful on our trip to Stellenbosch. He was always punctual and organized a well thought out tour that maximized our short time (3 days) in Cape Town. We can't recommend Eon & Explore Sideways enough.

Wow did we have an awesome experience with our guide Ryan, who took us all over Cape Town with unrivaled expertise over 3 full days! He showed us what we wanted to see, helped us understand what we should see that wasn't on our list, while also loading us up with answers to our many questions and recommendations from end to end.

Because of COVID, our anniversary trip to South Africa was delayed. The trip, however, was definitely worth the wait! We spent several days touring Cape Town with our wonderful guide, Ryan. He took us to every single spot we were hoping to see while still incorporating smaller, more local spots. Ryan was able to change our schedule around to fit the most into our days, while never making anything feel rushed. He also changed around our schedule based on the weather forecast, which worked out perfectly! It was obvious how much Ryan loves South Africa (specifically Cape Town) and his enthusiasm was infectious. We are already looking forward to planning a trip back!

This is a very nice, comfortable and tasty experience in Cape Town! Thanks a lot Explore Sideways who helped us to develop the itinerary (taking into account our preferences) for lunch reservation, wine tasting and cellar visit. Thank you for your patience (when we were asking much questions and proposing many different options) and thank you for reactivity to do final bookings! A separate thanks to Tim, our guide, who gave us enormous quantity of information, who replied all our questions concerning wine in SA and in France, and plenty other questions about South Africa everyday life.

Booked a private tour through Sideways with white shark projects. Early pick up by Ryan van Reenen in his Jeep and had wonderful far ranging conversation from politics to surfing,wine to geology and many other topics on the 2.5 hour trip to Gansbaai. Beautiful calm day on arrival,lovely friendly crowd in Whitesharkprojects group, especially Tom our expert for the trip. Boat was ready,high speed to the cage and then fun of squeezing into wet suit-. We saw 3 big bronze whalers up close and enjoyed the magic of being in their space. No whites but are becoming increasingly unpredictable,that's nature. Lots of good info on shark protection and how endangered some of the species are,especially whites. Probably 40 mins in the water which was enough for this old fella. Happy ride home with Ryan and sure slept well that night. A definite must do if you love nature and the sea
