    This is an excellent trip to start a Cape Town vacation!! Thomas was EXCELLENT!!!!! You get a great overview of the history, see the beautiful landscape and key spots. For us the fact that we had the vehicle to ourselves (given the pandemic) was a big plus! This tour is a must and if you can ask for Thomas ;) !

    It was an amazing and beautiful experience. Our guide Mawande was really accommodating and informative throughout the tour. The stay at the lodge was lovely with such friendly and helpful staff. To top it all the safari was really wonderful.

    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.

    The 4-day Garden Route tour was one of the best and memorable experiences in my trip to South Africa. Our guide Dylan made sure everyone in the group experienced the tour to its fullest. He is informative, caring, reflective, and generally a cool and fun guy to hang out with. The tour covers a lot and my group got to see many exciting and interesting spots. The highlight of the tour was of course the safari which exceeded my expectations. Everyone in the group including our guide Dylan, bonded well and we all had a wonderful time together. Everything from the scenery, accommodation, activities, and food was superb. I highly recommend Dylan as a tour guide as well as this tour if you are planning to see the most out of this beautiful country that is South Africa

    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.

    The sunset and views from Lion's Head after reaching the top are exactly as amazing and spectacular as other people have posted before. I had a great and fun time with our guide Tauriq as well as with my company of fellow hikers. Tauriq is an experienced, caring, an easy to talk with guide. Furthermore, he takes your personal safety serious by informing you about potential hazards on the route such as slippery and even rocks.

    I really recomend this trip for anybody, but especially for solo travellers if you would like to have nice and interesting conversations along the hike to Lion's Head.

    Charles was amazing! I expected a quiet drive to each location but instead we were wonderfully educated for the whole journey there and back! This trip would have been no good without Charles in my opinion! Charles' own personal story was touching and has made me think differently about life, so thank you very much for sharing this! I appreciated the hard work you put into this and will highly recommend to others because of you Charles.

    The whole experience was pretty amazing! The car was at the hotel punctually. The guide, Isaac, was extremely kind and explained a lot about the culture and the places to us, we love him!! In the way we had the opportunity to stop at an incredible shop. The day was rainy, but we could still had the Elephant experience. We stayed at "Guest House", the room is huge and the hosts were very pleasant with us! The next day, we had the big safari and it was amazing!!!

    We had a fantastic time with Ian who provided a unique experience using his many years of tour guiding knowledge He went above and beyond with information and recommendations on places to go, picking us up and dropping us off exactly where we were staying.

    It was unique because we had wildlife safari drives, an olive tasting experience (with wine!), a beer experience and also a vineyard wine tasting - you won’t find any tour like this in the Western Cape!

    Ian was friendly and very helpful but never too much in his guiding style - highly recommended for any of your touring needs while visiting Cape Town and the area. His 8 seater van was immaculate and chilled water was provided - the mic and speakers made it easy to hear his comments on the move. USB points and power bank if you need them.
