    Lieze was a lovely, knowledgeable guide for the all day tour. Having a guide who is also an experienced wine maker created an extra special wine tasting at each stop, to further cater to our taste. Lieze is very knowledgeable about wine, the region and South Africa. It was evident she has strong relationships at each winery stop, proven by our incredible experience and best seating for views of the winery.

    We had a family suite which was very nice. Though it was cold when we went & unless you wanted to brave the outdoor shower your only other option we to have a bath, which we felt bad about due to water shortages.

    We got to see loads of animals and they provided you with loads of blankets to stay warm in the trucks. The animals were absolutely amazing.

    The food was also great, my partner was pregnant but everything looked so fresh and tasted amazing with loads of choice.

    The only thing I would say is that there wasn’t really a ‘waiting’ area once you had to book out of your accomodation but wait for the transport back. The bar area wasn’t open at the time we were there, but I guess this would be the best option.

    We saw everything except for lions and leopards. Our driver and guide, Mike was absolutely great. He was knowledgeable and was always putting us first. He knew all the best routes to ensure you get to see the beauty of Cape Town.

    We booked this tour looking forward to going to Robben Island and taking the cable car at Table Mountain, but unfortunately the beautiful windy weather did not cooperate, lol.

    Our tour guide Alex picked us up at 8:00 and took us around the town, riding up the coast toward Table Mountain. Once we got to the top of Table Mountain to purchase tickets for the cable car, we were informed that it was closed all day due to the wind. Alex improvised and took us to another area that gave the same panoramic views, if not better. To be honest, we were a bit relieved, because the windy weather had us nervous about taking a cable car. The views were beautiful and breathtaking.

    We then drove through the city of Cape Town and Alex educated us on some of the historical buildings and areas in the city. When we got to the station to board for Robben Island we learned that no boat was going because of the wind :( no worries though, Alex improvised and made sure that we still enjoyed ourselves. I would have to completely thank Alex, otherwise the day would have been a complete disappointment and bust.

    We had a fine day. Danson was early, and was prepared for everything. He is quite knowledgeable, and a good listener. We finished at an alternate site for a concert, and he ensured we returned to our original destination after it.

    We did miss the duiker ferry, but we saw seals at Hout Bay, anyway. One attacked my wife—never would’ve happened on a ferry. Unforgettable. And, oh, she’s fine.

    For an American, a guide such as Danson is far superior to a manual transmission, British car rental, and driving on the left, with all that hassle, to all these different venues. We thought about doing this, but are glad we didn’t.

    We left for Robben Island from V&A in beautiful weather and calm see. The island itself was idyllic with a beautiful view to the mainland and the mountains around Cape Town. The history was every thing else but idyllic and a former inmate gave us a good insight about the history - and the daily life at the prison. Good that it is history now !
    The trip to Table mountain was amazing - the state of the art (turning around) cable car brought us to the top in seconds and the plateau was beautiful and with stunning views in all directions. We spent 1.5 hours just walking around.
    The trip was well organized and the guide was very nice and skilled !

    We had a nice day with Raegan as our tour guide. He picked us up and gave us an extensive history lesson as we drove to our points of interest. The company we snorkeled with were professional and very friendly! We had the boat to ourselves and enjoyed snorkeling with seals, in a kelp forest and a whale sighting as we motored to the snorkel sight. The water was quite chilly - but the guide was accommodating to us ending a bit earlier and had hot chocolate to warm us up! Raegan then took us to the other points of interest and was ready to pick us up after a short hike around Cape Penninsula. We were unprepared for the charge to drive a winding road on the way home (we wish we had been told about this one ahead of time—or offered the choice) and the necessity of cash at each point given the South African power shortages. Overall, a very fun day!

    This is a great tour to see the sights, especially if you only have a day or 2 in Cape Town. Our driver, Ordain, was very informative & friendly. We highly recommend him & this tour.

    Due to bad weather conditions boat trip was cancelled, but we decided to continue the tour trying to watch whales form the coast. Local tour operator refunded the cost of the boat trip. We could not see any whale but our guide Gavin gave us very good times at Hermanus and at Creation Winery. He was a gentleman, and gave my family and be a complete explanation about everything. We also saw penguins even though the colony was closing when we arrived.

    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.

    Great experience. Our boat guide and whale enthusiast did a great job. We saw three different types of whales and some seals. Our private guide was professional, provided great conversation, and a little rescue treat for oncoming seasickness. Dress warm.
