    Getting to Cape of good hope was the highlight of my experience.
    Seeing the beautiful scenery, seal Island, baboons and ostriches also made it a great experience.
    Our guide, Lucadel, was patient and knowledgeable stopping at various points on the tour to explain the history behind several landmarks on the way.

    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.

    This trip is worth every penny! Our guide, Jean Luc, was incredibly knowledgeable and really friendly. He knew absolutely everything I could think to ask and even had the best suggestions for photo angles! He really went above and beyond for us and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

    The trip itself was fantastic and the penguins were adorable. The views from Cape Point are definitely worth the extra few miles and the wildlife is just an added bonus.

    I've done two tours with Reveler -- Peguins/Cape of Good Hope & Garden Route Road trip.

    Both Blaine and Ryan are fantastic guides and both tours ran super smoothly! I couldn't have asked for a better time on both tours. I truly enjoyed my time and would definitely recommend booking with Reveler Tours!

    We were collected promptly by Terence who created a day that was the highlight of our trip to Cape Town. From the outset he listened carefully to what we were hoping to get from the day, and made sure that we did all of those things whilst adding so much more, drawing on his vast experience and huge knowledge of the region. Tiny details of the day were perfected by his advice, such as where the best places to get great shots of wildlife were, how to restructure the day to get the best out of every element, and even how to avoid waiting for lunch by pre-ordering before going down to see the penguins, so that it was ready when we returned. Not one moment of the day was wasted, and every aspect was enhanced. We so appreciated his thoughtfulness, consideration, humour and wisdom. He is a total credit to the company, and if we find ourselves in Cape Town again, we'll ask for him to be our guide like a shot.

    Great tour that covered a ton of the main sites. It was a full day tour where we saw Hout Bay, Seal Island, Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach/Penguins, Muizenberg Beach, Kirstenbosch Gardens. A lot of add on charges for tickets that we weren’t made aware of before the tour (boat to Seal Island, furnicular to Cape Point, entrance to Boulders Beach). I highly recommend the hike from Cape Point to Cape of Good Hope.

    Unclear how AE manages their staff but there are some tour guides that should not be drivers. Our driver/guide, was surly at best, filled of complaints about other drivers on the road while driving erratically.

    My travel agent had warned that the tour itself might feel rushed, but I was hopeful. Now, I think I would’ve had a better experience on a hop on hop off bus for the ‘limited’ time (10-15 min) we had at each location.

    As an example, I only had a 15-min window to walk down to the pier to check out the Penguins, and I never made it to the lighthouse. There were five other patrons and for whatever reason their entry fees were not pre-paid so the driver ended up waiting in the queue, and was very upset about it.

    The redeeming moment — when our driver handed us off to another driver, Abdul, who so kindly brought us to the ocean to dip our feet.

    Trip was cancelled at short notice with no explanation as to why, nor any alternative dates or times offered. Very disappointing. We copied the itinerary and did the trip ourselves.

    This was a fantastic tour and worth every penny! Barnabus was a fantastic guide and went the extra mile every time a request was made. The small group made it possible to get in and out without waiting for a bus full of people. The company was very responsive, letting us know when and where we would be picked up to start the day. Highly recommend this tour!!

    After the super experience with Denver our guide for the half day city tour we requested him again for the full day tour. Our guide was very informative. He could tell us about the history of Cape Town and the modern city, and the surrounding areas. We throughly enjoyed both tours
