Ivan is brilliant. His local knowledge of the history of the region is invaluable because I assure you that this information is not available in a mainstream history book. Everything from the building architecture to the local flora and fauna of the region. This made the tour enjoyable and interesting. Thank you!

It was absolutely unforgettable experience. The drive was slow enough, so we had time to see and enjoy the surrounding and we stopped at the most picturesque sites. We had lunch at beautiful restaurant and was watching penguins while eating. On the way back we stopped at botanical gardens and had time to walk around (I would like to go there again) and we fall in love with Shona sculptures so much that we even purchased one when we came back to US. We’ve been great admires of Shona sculptures since that time. Ivan told us many stories and a lot of information about the land. We enjoyed his company so much that we still maintain contact. His driving is also awesome, you can rarely experience such smooth and comfortable ride. We with we are able to come again. It is just so far.

My boyfriend and I loved every minute of this tour. We went amazing wine farms learnt so much about wine and saw some of the most beautiful parts of Cape Town. We also had a second trip booked to the city and we had booked again to do another wine tour unfortunately, due to COVID we had to cancel. The next time we visit Cape Town I will definitely book another tour with these amazing, professional and kind people.

I visit Cape Town from the UK at least once a year, and every time i visit I do at least one tour with Ivan. He is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable guide so we always have an enjoyable and informative trip. The vehicles used are high quality, well maintained and really comfortable. I can not speak highly enough about the company.
