We booked the Scenic Cape Town Peninsula day tour. We had a wonderful day with Daryl, he was amazing! We got a completely customized tour and instead of being back at the hotel by 4pm, he dropped us of at Camps Bay at 6pm for our last sundowner in CT. We enjoyed every minute with him and have fantastic memories of our day trip! Thank you so much, Daryl, and hope to see you again!

My boyfriend and I did the City Hidden Gems tour with Sebastian and we had a great day with him. He told us a lot about the history of Cape Town and South Africa and always added some fun facts in between. Sebastian knows tons about his city and there is no reason we would not recommend him and the tour. We also did the big peninsula tour and he showed us amazing places! Our stay in Cape Town would not have been as great without him. Thank you very much and see you soon!

We were a family of 6 adults visiting Cape Town for the first time. We did our tour with Rushdi on our first morning. We learned so much about the history of CT, living through and after apartheid and Nelson Mandela. Rushdi deviated from the tour route to allow us to buy a quick coffee from the wonderful Truths. We were all pretty exhausted after 4 hours walking on a hot day but all enjoyed the tour so much. The tour finishes at the V&A waterfront so plenty options there for lunch and drinks stop. Would highly recommend
