    We never really thought about going to South Africa. At least not until we were in the Azores and met Martijn and Mona.
    For us, it is really difficult to find good diving guides arounf the world, but Martijn is really a professionist.
    So we booked this trip and this is one of the best thing we did.
    We really enjoyed the time we spent in Simonstown.
    The staff of Shark Explores is really nice, kind, friendly and professional. They did everything they can to grant you amazing experience both under and outside the water.
    The boats are really confortable.
    We highly recommend them both to divers and non divers.

    The crew and everybody involved was very friendly and professional. On the way to the Anker place our skipper stopped a few times so that we could see dolphins, seals and even a whale! While diving everybody was being helpful and I Feld save at any given point. There were up to 15 sharks at our cage. It was truly an amazing time!

    Our group of 8 family and friends thoroughly enjoyed this tour through Cape Town and the surrounding area. Our guide Ted Danson was fantastic and very accommodating. He kept us on track but we were not rushed. We stopped at many points of interest, some really good coffee at Noordhoek Farm village and a delicious lunch at Seaforth restaurant in Simons Town taking amazing photos along the way. From the Bokaap neighborhood and all points in between to the rugged beauty of Table Mountain National Park. Thanks to Ted this is an experience our group will not soon forget. Do not hesitate to book a tour with Beyond Africa Safaris & Tours, ask for Ted. You will not be disappointed. 5 Stars.

    Charles, Wendy, and Songs have been such wonderful and helpful guides for our trip. We enjoyed the delightful anecdotes and history lessons from Charles. The 8hour excursion didn’t feel too rushed to cover the key destinations of Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, and Boulders Beach. We recommend joining this tour especially if you don’t have a car.

    We had an excellent trip with our guide Kelvin! He was very friendly and knowledgeable and the trip was everything we expected and more. Very safe and we saw some beautiful scenery and Kelvin explained all sorts of interesting facts about the places we went to. We also got to stop for a lovely lunch at Simon’s town. Seeing the penguins was a particular highlight. Would highly recommend and Kelvin in particular was great and made the trip for us.

    A brilliant tour with Xavier - a knowledgeable, friendly guide. We were given as much time as we needed in each place and had a thoroughly excellent day. Highly recommended!

    Kelvin was by far the best tour guide we have ever had. He was so knowledgeable, friendly and patient with us. If you are coming to Cape Town on holidays looking for a trip full of multiple places with top service this is the company to go with. My wife and I could recommend the company any higher. It’s a must book if you are looking to check off a lot in half a day. I would also consider the private package as it really felt special for us. Thanks again to Kelvin for the unbelievable experience.

    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!

    Our tour was ace. Our guide Ross was so knowledgable and made us really ready for our day. He even fitted in Table Mountain as there were only 4 of us on the excursion. Nothing too much trouble and he took our photos and we had the best time of our lives. He explained the atrocities of the appartide and joined in with our discussions. We liked our insight into Robben Island and he made sure we got our ferry.

    My wife and I did the discover scuba dive experience with Kobus in Long beach in Simon’s Town. He made us feel at ease with the gear and what we were doing, we went 6 meters deep and practised the basic skills needed for this experience. He was very patient with us as it is really really hard work to deal with to inexperience people under water and he did it the best i could imagine. I will definitively recomment him to any scuba divers or anybody who wants to try the experience coming to Cape Town! Thank you so much!
