Lastly but most importantly we pride ourselves in our ecotourism roots and have a "keep it natural" approach in both the sites we visit and our comfortable and non rushed tours we have designed

Our travel agent booked the tour in Cape Town during July28 to July 30 2019. We were received by a guide named Iggy (Ignasius) of Africa Embraced Tours. Iggy was an excellent guide we ever met! He was very polite, enthusiastic to show the city and suburbs. We also visited botanical garden and penguin Time!. Iggy is the most professional and well experienced in his guiding business. Iggy has very good personality with lots of sense of humor. I highly recommend him for guide since he is very patient with the visitors and having best communication skills. He picks up at the promised time for the tour. We were group of 4 people and had very good time with Iggy seeing Cape Town and surrounding area. I highily recommend Iggy to anyone for the tour guide! Regards Hari & Manju

Had a fantastic day with Iggy, who gave us a flavour of Cape Town for our first ever visit. With little known insights into the sights and culture, the tour was beautifully paced, segueing into some wine tasting and a lovely walk around the botanical gardens after lunch. What a great introduction to a wonderful city.

We took the penguin time private tour with Iggy. He was an excellent host and offered us all the possibilities to make the best out of day where the weather was not the best. He offered to us water, free WiFi on board, snacks, ... He gave us plenty of information and helped us to understand much better Cape Town and South Africa. Highly recommendable. We would certainly recommend him.

We had the pleasure of going on a Winelands tour and it was an amazing experience. My mother was visiting Cape Town for the first time and we really wanted to make the most of her trip! We decided to book a day tour to Stellenbosch and Franschoek. We had the best time! The experience allowed us to see the famous and, not so famous (yet delightfully charming) wine farms in two fabulous locations. One of the best things about our tour was that we had the opportunity to ask questions and learn as we went along! It felt more like a journey than a rushed trip to quickly tick off “wine tasting’ from our list of activities. We learnt a little of the vast history of South Africa and the Winelands, and also got the chance to experience 3 tastings - including a fourth at lunch, a tour and walk in Stellenbosch Town, a visit to one of South Africa’s fanciest wine estates and we even got to buy some wine! I have nothing but compliments! My only regret is not having enough time to have booked a longer tour.

Recently 6 adventurous Aussies visited Cape Town & Stellenbosch. We requested a driver and along came Iggie Potgieter. From the day Iggie picked us up from our hotel in Cape Town he was more like a friend than a driver Iggie was extremely knowledgable and provided us with heaps of interesting information relating to South Africa and it’s history. He was mindful of keeping us “safe”when there was talk of a protest in the area we needed to travel as we headed out of Cape Town to Stellenbosch. He was always punctual, very polite and eager to please us his customers. He had suggestions readily available when we had ideas of places of interest and researched options to bring back to the group if he did not immediately have answers. He waited patiently when we needed to sample another glass of wine! We really enjoyed his company and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any other travellers.
