    Such a great experience. A beautiful museum Wel looked after. Lots of fascinating details and a reminder why we must never forget crimes of the past. Helpful, insightful staff.

    We were pleasantly surprised by how much details and facts we learnt about on our tour to the museum. We took the guided tour and it was fantastic hearing from the guide who was very passionate about her job and the museum. This museum is part of history and is set in the location where the actual transplant occurred. The way it is set up you can almost imagine yourself being part of history and watching a miracle taking place right before your eyes. The museum had free parking in a secure part of the hospital.

    The museum is fascinating and a relatively quick tour that is very informative history of the diamond industry in South Africa. Tanya (our guide) was wonderful. The tour (predictably) ends in a showroom but there is no hard sell. These gems can sell themselves. Very worthwhile place to get out of the sun and spend some time.

    Epic day, just myself having a tour of the township with Don, he lives and knows the Township well and it is important to see this side of CT.

    He has an expert knowledge of the area, the history and has respect from everyone in the community. A must do experience in Cape Town!

    Only downside was I paid for a pick up, which was 50 minutes late, and the driver insisted he was outside the whole time, which was simply not true, and I would have appreciated him to just be honest. But I wouldn't let this detract from Dons tour, which was epic!

    This was a great bike tour of western Cape Town along the Atlantic coast. The fat bike tour was fun and good exercise. It was my first time on an E-bike. I did not use the electric assist other than to try it out, but this feature makes this tour possible for anyone to do. The guide was very informative and fun to bike with.

    The best part of my trip to SA was seeing these incredible projects and meeting the people behind them! Starting with a sustainably built school and ending with a chorus and so much love and fellowship from an elderly community, my heart was full by the end of our tour. A great reminder of the power we all have to impact our communities and come together. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town!

    We found places we’d have never found as mere tourists. This was fun, informative and delicious! Not only did we visit great neighborhood places, crazy-fun bars, but we learned about the history of Cape Town,, its neighborhoods, the food and landmarks. We loved every minute of it, and our hosts were fun and amazing. Can’t recommend it enough.

    Our family of 5 with 19, 15 and 8 year old, love this. The view on the dunes is spectacular. The surfing is so fun. I highly recommend paying extra for the truck to take you to top of dune each time. I walked up a couple times and man was I glad I paid extra for the lift. It a must do when in Cape Town

    A phenomenal experience from the moment I walked in to the moment I left. Every little detail was cared for. From the volume of music, relaxing ambience, therapist’s touch and oil selection, the quality and standards are worldclass.
    As an educator in the industry, I am especially aware of hygiene and attention to small details. I felt impressed by the the therapist’s knowledge & skill. The massage was specific to suit my needs, intuitively performed and left me feeling calm and relaxed. Clientcare was gentle, kind and discreet.
    I will definitely go back for more and remcommend them to anyone who needs a little self-love & me-time.
    Thank you Mai Thai
