Once again my wife and I returned to the Western Cape for a holiday which simply wouldn't have been complete without a day out with Julie. This was the third time Julie had been our Tour Guide and driver and we enjoyed every minute. We wanted to visit a number of Wine Estates and Julie, as always, was very helpful in suggesting an itinerary. With a friend from Johannesburg we enjoyed the 'Duck Parade' at Vergenoegd, moved on to Blaauwklippen, had lunch and a tasting at Boschendal and finished our day at Backsberg. Throughout Julie was professional, knowledgeable, interesting, an excellent driver and great company. Whatever you want to see in Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula or taste in the Winelands, don't hesitate to book Julie's Cape Splendour Day Tours. As returning clients we've never been disappointed.

Having just returned from a memorable holiday in Cape Town with my wife, my son and daughter and their partners we will never forget and will always be indebted to the service and experiences given to us by Julie at Cape Splendour Tours and Safaris.

Our first experience was a trip to the Cape of Good Hope taking in the spectacular coastal route through Camps Bay and Houts Bay, taking lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant before travelling up to the amazing penguin colony at Boulders Beach. The spacious and immaculately clean minibus provided ample space and comfort throughout our journey.

The second tour to the wine regions of Stellenbosch, coincidentally on my sixtieth birthday completely exceeded our expectations as Julie had prearranged for me to take the cork out of a sparkling wine at Simonsig with a sabre!

This attention to detail was not expected and sets Julie apart from any other tour operator we have come across. We cannot recommend her highly enough. What a professional and thank you so much for making it such a memorable holiday.

Cape Town exceeded my expectations and my many thanks and appreciation to Julie for accommodating and enhancing my travels! From my initial communications, Julie answered my questions on a timely basis and took the initiative to provided suggestions and recommendations based upon my interests. Our tour days were well planned and Julie provided excellent knowledge and tips. I hope that I will sometime have the opportunity to return to Cape Town and would look forward to more "Cape Splendour" tours!

Dear L, Thank you so much for the lovely review! I enjoyed doing the research on your special interest and discovered a few spots, that I had not previously encountered, which made our days together lots of fun. It is always good to learn about things out of one's comfort zone. I am so glad that I could facilitate an action packed few days for you, whether I was with you the whole time or not. Warm Regards Julie

I can only give 5 stars and Julie deserves 10+. This was our 4th visit to Cape Town and the 4th time we engaged Julie to show us around the surrounding area. As always, she turned up trumps. She is an excellent tour guide, she adapts the day to whatever you want to do without fuss and with great efficiency. The fact that on every visit to the beautiful city we have used Julie shows how much we appreciate her tours. We would never use anyone else. She is so knowledgeable and adaptable. On our first day, the rain set in but this didn't stop her finding us things to do in wet weather circumstances.
My sister became hospitalised during our stay and although Julie was then on a well-earned holiday she kept in touch with Christine by email and phone during her hospital stay - well above her role as a tour guide.
Please use Julie when you visit Cape Town. We know you won't be disappointed, both in terms of the tour and Julie herself.

In the beginning of March 2020, just before the Coronapandemic toke over the world and South Africa went in to total lockdown, our group of 10 friends went on a week tour with Cape Splendour Tours. Well let me tell you, actually Cape Splendour Tours is just one lady, the lovely Mrs. Julie Clarke. She arranged a week tour including winetasting and a day tour around the Cape Peninsula. For 3 days we went on a winetasting tour in the wine areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek. We already made a list of which wineries we wanted to visit and Julie just filled in the blanks. That’s the good thing about Julie, she doesn’t always do a standard program, but she listens to what her customers want and makes a program according to your wishes. She has lots of contacts and a great knowledge of the area. This knowledge especially came out when we did the tour around the Cape Peninsula, including a visit to Cape of Good Hope and the penguins at Boulder’s Point.
A special mention has to go to our driver during this week, Mr. Clarence Prince, the most positive and cheerful man you will ever meet! Always on time, driving carefully and a great sense of humour. Me and him got on like a house on fire.
So when all this Corona madness is over and your going to beautiful South Africa, make sure to contact Julie Clarke at Cape Splendour Tours!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I had a great time putting your itinerary together and visiting all the farms you and your travel mates wanted to visit. I am so glad that I managed to arrange it for you to see one of your old favourites that had been closed right up to the day we visited. I had a lot of fun with Clarence too, it was the first time we had worked together. I sincerely hope you and your friends do return and choose Cape Splendour to assist you with your holiday and share the Splendours of the Cape with you again.

Our experience with Julie was very positve, starting from the first contacts by email several months before our trip to Cape Town. Julie is a very friendly and knowledgeable person. She helped us to plan two day tours and booked for us whale watching boat trip and safari in Aquila game park. The boat trip was unfortunately cancelled at the very last moment due to bad weather. Julie helped us to reschedule the whale watching to another day and arranged her colleague as a guide, as she was not available that day. The day tour to Aquila was perfectly organized, with wine tasting and shopping for local food specialties on the way, and very enjoyable conversations. Julie also helped us sorting out some problems in our hotel, going beyond her service as a guide. Thanks Julie for the great time we had in Africa!

Prior to our Safari, we spent 3 days in Cape Town. Julie was instrumental in arranging everything from airport pickup to showing us sites and arranging drop off again at Cape Town airport. For these first time visitors, she was wonderful. She was very flexible. We spent the first day in the city. The District Six Museum was very enlightening. The second day we spent traveling the coastline from Cape Town all the way down to the southwestern most point in Africa, the Cape of Good Hope, we climbed the old lighthouse, stopped along the way to visit the small rural village. We enjoyed a lovely lunch with a beautiful view. The sole was delicious. We saw Penguins, seals, ostriches, Bo Kaap houses, and beautiful nature! The day was full, but not stressed. Julie’s roomy van made the trip pleasant and comfortable. I can definitely recommend Julie . She is a native and has over 20 years of knowledge and stories to share.

We went on a honeymoon trip and one of out stops was at Cape Town! Julie was an amaizing tour guide always super alert with our flights, recomending us what places to visit and always on time. The first day we did a tour around the peninsula which was beautiful, we had a great lunch, a small hike with great views and made a visit to see the penguins.
On out second day we did a wine tasting tour and a visit to the Botanical gardens which were beautiful!
Thank you very much!

We must give the highest possible recommendation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our full-day tour with Jeffrey in his comfortable Mercedes. Not only did Jeffrey accompany us to all the places we had asked to see but he also gave us enlightening insights throughout our leisurely journey, whilst driving with great care, attention and patience. Nevertheless, he pointed out wildlife and fauna as we went along!
Based on our dialogue during the day, Jeffrey incorporated a few additional stops, which made our tour truly personal.

Our tour with Julie was a highlight of our visit to South Africa. Along with the major scenic stops we were able to spend some time at some areas we had specific interest such a local weekend market.

Additionally, Julie was very helpful with helping sort out some other areas of our trip with transportation & running down something we'd left at the hotel - going above & beyond.

We'll recommend her for our friends or family visiting the Cape Town area in the future - thank you!
