Tim has an impressive encyclopaedic knowledge of Cape Town, and provided so many interesting facts as he took me and my five-year-old daughter around the peninsula. Tim tailored our trip to meet both my interests and that of my daughter. Tim added extra ‘treats’ Into our trip, so that it was not all focused on entertaining my daughter. Tim carefully curated the trip, so that we created memories that will last for a lifetime. I cannot more highly recommend Tim and his wonderful caring service.

We are a group of two sets of partners so four adults and we booked Tim for a full day in the winelands visiting Stellenbosch and then Tokara for lunch and then back. The van was comfortable and the experience really thoroughly enjoyable. Tim was clever and witty and enabled us to change the tour as we went according to what we fancied. Very much recommend this. He also shared insights and routes that we could explore on our own, which we did.

We had 2 tours booked, the Tin Man's Four Passes Tour and the Yellow Brick Road Tour of the Cape Winelands, and Tim managed to provide us with an amazing experience for both days. Tim is definitely one of the top guides I have ever met. He was able to share a wide variety of fun facts while on the drive to our destinations and always has a great way of delivering the information. He was also very pleasant and flexible with the tours and he makes a point to check what your interests are, or what you would like to see. On the tours, we were able to see the picturesque landscapes of Cape Town and were brought to vineyards with amazing views. We had lots of fun and always were wondering how the day passed so quickly. The Friends of Dorothy Day Tours is highly recommended for anyone who would like to learn more about Cape Town and have a great time doing it!

Our group had 2 tours with Tim both of which were excellent. The reataurants were an excellent choice by Tim. He Taylor made our 2nd day as one of our party had expressed an interest in visiting a cheetah sanctuary. I would thoroughly recommend Tim as a tour guide, - I agree with another review which says he is the Wikipedia of Cape Town .

Best tour guide ever! We travel frequently and have used many tour guides n our varied trips. Tim Freeman@friends for Dorothy was absolutely the best. He was outstanding and I would recommend him to anyone who is going to Cape Town. We were a group of 4 adults and hired Tim to take us through Cape Town and surrounding areas. We corresponded with him prior to our trip and he was unbelievably helpful in setting up our time. On the first day we went wine tasting in the Stellenbosch region as it was Sunday and Tim advised us that much in the city would be closed. We had an unbelievable day touring wineries. Tim was so knowledgeable about the region and wines we sampled. We soon learned his breadth of knowledge was vast. He could give us history as well as colorful information about South Africa which made it interesting and entertaining. We visited places I could not have imagined existed in Cape Town. As beautiful as anything I’ve seen in Tuscany. The next day we had a city walking tour. Again Tim’s knowledge was amazing. He knows where to stop and let us explore. He is acquainted with people in different sectors of the city who helped us understand Cape Town and the variety of people who live there. We took a tour of a township which was truly eye opening. On our last day with Tim we drove to The Cape of Good Hope. We stopped at Kristenbosch Gardens and were just blown away by his knowledge of plants. On our travels we saw baboons, ostrich, seals and a variety of other wild animals. The trip was so beautiful and interesting. Plus Tim timed it perfectly so we could make our dinner reservation at one of Cape Town’s finest restaurants. The one thing I may not have mentioned is Tim’s quick wit which makes touring with him so enjoyable. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a guide in Cape Town
