    Our first day in South Africa. Our guide, Danson, made the day entertaining, enjoyable, and educational. He is a professional in every way. Downtown tour, history, beautiful Cape of Good Hope, boat trip to Seal Colony, Penguins.....it was a memorable day. As a private tour, Danson was able to customize the day to fit our interests. Worth the money.

    Great tour that allowed us to see a lot of Cape Town in just one day. The guide was very patient and was very knowledgeable. Saw a bunch animals…penguins, seals, ostriches, baboons, and more.

    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.

    I had an amazing tour today with my guide Tresor. He was very knowledgeable and told us the history of Cape Town and the cape of good hope. We got to pack a lot in and it was worth every penny. Would definitely do this tour again and recommend to anyone who comes to Cape Town!

    Thank you so much to our guide Reagan for making the day very informative, fun and relaxing. Reagan took us through some history as well as 3 incredibly gorgeous wineries. The views were absolutely breathtaking, not even a camera could capture the beauty it was a must see in real life! The day was a wonderful experience, thank you again!

    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.

    Pleasant and professional service. Dave was a lovely driver and made the journey comfortable. He drove me to Aquila Safari Park. I also hired him for another excursion for the helicopter ride and the cheetah sanctuary. For that trip, it was Mike, another wonderful driver. Wonderful service.

    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.

    The tour was a wonderful experience! The bus was on time and the tour guide, Charles, was extremely accommodating. As the tour bus exited the city bowl and moved through Muizenberg, Charles entertained and educated us with his beautifully told stories and games. Seeing penguins free and in their natural habitat was a sight to behold and the restaurant at Boulders Beach served amazing food. The drive through Simon's Town was scenic and seeing the Cape of Good Hope was a life-changing experience. The entire park is covered in Fynbos which is a sight in itself but the expanse of ocean visible from the highest point is immense. The drive back was through Kommetjie, so much of the Cape can actually be seen on this trip. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see and learn an incredible amount in one day.

    I had an incredible experience on this tour. In the end it was long, but worth every minute, especially if it's your first time in Cape Town like it was mine. Our tour guide Reagan, did a great job during the entire tour. He was patient, kind, and passionate about Cape Town and South Africa. He did a good job of accommodating and catering to the diverse needs of each guest on our tour. I highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking an adventure and an in-depth view of Cape Town.

    Brilliant experience and well worth it . The best tour guide we have ever encountered was a gent named Charles Fourie, his knowledge of the local area, history and other interesting facts really gave us such an all encompasing experience. His knowlege of the area is second to none. He was friendly, polite and went the extra mile to ensure that everyone was comfortable and happy.
    What a lovely day. Definately a box to tick on your bucket list, well over double the price we paid
