    I booked Lesley for 2 days when our ship was docked in Cape Town. She was very prompt in answering my emails and gave great suggestions as to what we might see and do. Her van is very comfortable, clean and air conditioned. She has a PA system installed in the van so that the folk sitting in the back can still clearly hear her commentary. Bottled water was provided for us.
    She was waiting for us when we exited the cruise terminal on both days.

    The first day was a half day tour of Cape Town for 5 people. It was part walking and part driving. She saw to it that we got to the Castle of Good Hope in good time for the firing of the cannon. We visited the Company Gardens, Bo Kaap, Signal Hill and St George Cathedral. We also had a fantastic visit to a local beading/co-op shop called Streetwires. While doing all of this she also kept her eye on the website for the waiting times of the cable car up Table Mountain. On this first day it was stopped for some time due to high winds and later the queues were long so we did not make it up to the top on Day 1. We had booked a 4 hour tour for today but Lesley was very generous with her time and this tour went for longer than the hours scheduled.

    Day 2 was a full day tour again for 5 people to the Cape of Good Hope. This was a very scenic drive in her comfortable van and she stopped at several viewpoints for photos. We went to Cape Point, saw wild ostriches, took the funicular to the top and down again. We stopped off to visit the African penguins and Kirstenbosch Gardens on the way back to Cape Town. We were never hurried and her knowledge of places was extensive. In the afternoon Lesley again frequently checked online for info re the waiting time for the cable car up Table Mountain and as the times were good she dropped us off there in the last afternoon for our trip up on the cable car.

    You would not find a better tour guide than Lesley - a lovely person doing a great job. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a guide in or around Cape Town.

    We booked 3 trips with this Company and never regretted any of them.

    Kevin hired a larger car, as there was 4 of us, for our comfort and was extremely knowledgeable about all of the tours. He took us to the Stellenbosch vineyards, showing us the most amazing views, Cape point/ Boulders bay and Aquilla Safari Park. He went out of his way to show us the best parts of Cape Town and area. He didnt just take us there and back but went via the scenic routes or the more interesting places. Time was never a problem and he never "clock watched" His commentary was informative and interesting and he gave a great backgound history of South Africa. He is a lovely friendly guide and very obliging. Deffo recommend his tours.
    Thank you so much Kevin.

    I cannot say enough good things about Marion and Cape Insights! Marion was wonderful to work with, and coordinated a perfect bespoke tour of Africa for us. I live in Hawaii, and would never have guessed that planning an independent six-week trip could be done so easily with someone who was halfway around the world. We worked in tandem deciding what – where – when, etc. – and then she secured all of the reservations, had greeters meet us at airports, and – best of all – gave us never-to-be-forgotten tours of Cape Town and the Winelands in South Africa. Her knowledge of South African history and current affairs is encyclopedic. Her specialties are art and cuisine, and she introduced us to South Africa’s best of both. Marion’s attention to detail was impeccable and there was not a single snafu during the entire six weeks. The game lodges she recommended were perfect for us, and she had vetted all of them – so she knew they were excellent. Our trip was not confined to South Africa – she made reservations in Tanzania, Botswana, and Zimbabwe as well. I cannot recommend Marion and Cape Insights enough.

    Our time at the Hilton didn't start so well, check in was poor with a wait to check in, then the key card not working and bags taking a long time to be delivered to the room. In saying that the hotel went out of their way to make this up to us and ensured a very enjoyable stay after this.

    The location is great, very central and close to restaurants on loop and bree street which makes dining a very easy experience.
