    The tour left me with a heart of gratitude for the Creator God who made the heart of a human being that can forgive and move past all the inhumane things done to him in prison. Rest In Peace Mandela. My heart and prayers go out to families and everyone that are still alive to tell their story. We serve a might God that is sovereign over all living creatures,

    Very friendly informative guide Bhirdev, who incorporated into the tour a lot of information on the history of Cape Town.
    Was nice to visit places we wouldn't have done without local knowledge and guidance.

    What can I say about MJ Sultan and Fazeiela? I booked the tour, then cancelled the tour, then booked it again. Throughout my dithering, she was patient and kind. Then the tour began. From the moment she picked us up, she was smiling and friendly and came with water. She showed us around town and told us everything she knew about the city and gave us an intimate look at Cape Town that we would have missed. She is very detailed and thoughtful and took us to the best coffee house in town (or the world, perhaps). She dropped us off at Robben Island, and was there waiting when we got back. She took us to see some more interesting sights and gave us candy! It was not only informational and interesting, but she was a delightful tour guide. I would gladly spend another afternoon with her. She works hard to make sure you are happy and it works. Thanks, Faziela!

    Sebastián was on time and showed us around Cape Town on foot. He gave us a detailed history of District 6 and the effects of apartheid on the region. He openly answered questions about living in Cape Town and its history. He also tailored the trip to locations that interested us plus showed us some great places to eat.

    Words cannot describe what we saw during our tour to the townships. Very unique experience which can make some people uncomfortable but is a must do.

    Whenever you go on a tour you know within the first 5 mins whether your day is going to be good or not - it’s all about how good the guide is.

    Well I have to say out your guide Albert was 10*.

    He went above and beyond on so many occasions . We have two young girls so a tour with us is not the easiest, especially as one is travel sick, but Albert gave us a great day and we all came away from it feeling as though we had the best day! Albert worked around us with the timings and what we wanted to do, he made sure the girls saw all of the animals and we got great photos too!

    Xavier was extremely helpful with the bookings in getting everything organised and letting us confirm at last moment due to the change in flights!

    I can honestly say if you do not do a tour with these guys you will be disappointed, they were just fantastic and I cannot sing their praises enough.

    We made a couple of last minute transfer bookings and they just sorted it all straight away with no issues and also very competitive pricing.

    Thank you for a great day and also for the fantastic friend we have made in Albert!

    Cape Town is Waterfront, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, Green Point, Clifton, but it is also the townships which are also a huge part of the history of South Africa and Cape Town.
    The tour we did with Sam was one of the tours you won’t forget. You can ask him any question and he will tell you all about the history from the 1900’s till now. We had an impressive morning walking through Langa and driving through Gugulethu. A lot to process and think about…

    We had a really lovely tour guide who personalised our pre and post city sightings for things we had not yet seen on our last day. Would recommend this as it included a stop at a really lovely cafe

    Zak was lovely and we had a memorable morning/afternoon with him in his neighborhood. He not only shared about the history, culture, and religion of Bo-Kaap, but also provided personal anecdotes and stories about himself, his friends, and family that made it feel personable and relate-able. The Cape Malay meal was also incredible, as was the savory/spicy donut and rooibos tea at the end was enjoyable as well!

    This tour plus the District Six Museum should be part of every tourist's time in Cape Town. Our guide was very interesting. It was a very personal tour as there were only 4 of us. This was an eye-opening experience; I learned so much that I will never forget.

    Fabulous day trip. Brahm, the guide, was knowledgeable & humorous. Went to Cape Point, then hiked to the Cape of Good Hope - both great fun. Then to Boulders Beach to see the African Penguins - amazing opportunity. Throughout the day we also saw Baboon, Eland, Ostrich & even a Humpback Whale.

    We went with Mr. Shaheed, who picked us up from our accommodation in his car. We thought we were just booking a street art tour, but came away with a much more nuanced understanding of Cape Town's recent history. What touched us so much was our guide's sincerity - his profound sense of spirituality, community spirit and passion. Mr. Shaheed has a bit of a "youth guidance counsellor" vibe - he doesn't sugarcoat issues, but he also wants the best for his community. He has a view about almost everything, but was also interested in what we had to say - and he genuinely listened as well as sharing his take on issues. The trip is as much as you make of it, as he was extremely adaptable to whatever question we had, and we found ourselves talking about politics, the economy, immigration, and even at some point, NFTs... :D

    This is the second time we visited Cape Town, and in part thanks to him, we have a different understanding of the city. Definitely recommended.
