    Had a great day with Mike as our tour guide. From as soon as I booked the tour, Dave was in touch with information and even rescheduled due to weather conditions on the water. Mike showed up early and drove us to Gansbaai because Hermanus was fully booked up. He stopped at a beautiful winery along the way. The boat tour was fabulous and we saw whales, sharks, penguins and seals. Mike was very accommodating to be sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive and informative along the way. Highly recommend!!

    Wonderful big 5 Sea Safari experience. It was a lovely day on the ocean filled with education and sightings of dolphins and seals. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Will definitely make use of you guys again. Thank you for a great time!

    Firstly, the day out we had, bore no resemblance to the previous reviews. It does illustrate however, how much the weather and/ or guide can influence the enjoyment or otherwise of this trip. Pick up was on time, the only surprise being that there were 7 others in the mini bus on the same trip - but this did mean we then got charged the reduced fee for a 'group'.
    Our guide was personable and chatty and gave us a running commentary of what we could see and some of the history behind South Africa.
    The botanical gardens (£ included) were a bit of a dead loss purely because it was the wrong time of year, but served as useful 'stretch' stop en route.
    The boat based whale watching (optional - £ not included) was helped by the fact that it was wall to wall blue sky and mill pond like sea state. This was early Sept and during the 2 hrs or so, we saw probably 5 or 6 whales with calves close up and a pod of bottlenose dolphins.
    Lunch was in Hermanus (£ not included) and you could go to whichever restaurant/cafe that took your fancy.
    On the way back to Cape Town we stopped at a vineyard for a wine tasting session (£ included). All very nice.
    Overall a full day out 08:45 to 18:00 - no complaints at all.
