ESCAPE TO THE CAPE is an absolutely PHENOMENAL company! As you can imagine, traveling to an unknown country can build excitement and anxiety. From the moment Shaheed made his first contact to confirm my travel details, I knew I was in the right hands.

About one week before arrival and everyday we (mom and I) were in Cape Town, Shaheed maintained contact to assure we were having a pleasurable trip and to layout the following day's plans. Upon my return to the United States, I needed to be in touch with a South African company and he was willing to serve as a liaison and help with the communication process. Shaheed was patient, professional, thorough and very passionate about all things Cape Town, as well as delivering wonderful tours.

Similarly, our daily driver, Joe, was such a joy! Every morning he arrived early for pick-ups and always gave a big hug and bright smile. He was very knowledgeable and eager to share South African history and culture with me and mom. We truly adored him. He always made us feel like old friends and we really got a kick out of the many relationships he had with so many locals! Most importantly, we felt safe with him. I am still in awe at all of the sites we were able to visit - and Joe never made us feel rushed. He enjoyed us taking in all of the sites, sounds and culinary delights of Cape Town.

Whenever I return to South Africa, I will be sure to use ESCAPE TO THE CAPE to curate another beautiful experience. Thank you so much, Shaheed and Joe! Continued blessings on your business.

I had the pleasure of meeting Shaheed when I was in Cape Town for work. I instantly liked him, and was happy that I was able to meet him several times during my time there. Cape Town is a stunning location, and I was lucky enough to have Shaheed's company take me all over the Cape for three days while I was there for work. They were amazing! Each person that I met was kind, helpful, professional and just such a pleasure to be around. I hope to return to Cape Town and when I do, I will be engaging Escape to the Cape again, and will also be referring my clients to Shaheed. It was a really great experience, and I want to extend my personal thanks to Shaheed for making my time in Cape Town so amazing.

Just returned from a wonderful visit to South Africa. We spent 3 days in Cape Town, and booked a guide through Cape Sightseeing Tours. They provided us with their guide Joe, who provided all day service, including airport pickup and dropoff, a tour of the Cape Peninsula and the Cape of Good Hope Table Mountain National Park, incredible landscapes, a brief visit to an award-winning vineyard, two of Nelson Mandela's prisons, illuminating conversations regarding apartheid, its lasting impacts, its toll on the day-to-day life of the country's citizens. Cape Sightseeing organized meticulously and delivered flawlessly. I highly recommend working with them if your journeys take you to Cape Town.

Just returned from our first visit to South Africa, which included 3 days in Cape Town. We were lucky to have found Cape Sightseeing Tours; they were everything we had hoped for. We explored Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula, Stellenbosch and the wine country as well. I can't emphasize enough just how wonderful our guide Joe was during our stay. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable; his concern for our comfort was always foremost in his mind, and made us feel that we were very special. We did our exploration in the comfort of Lexus Sedan, which was lovely and more than comfortable. I would strongly recommend using Cape Sightseeing for your exploration of Cape Town and its environs; it would be hard to beat this experience.

Hi Alan,

Its an honour to have hosted yourself & your sister in Cape Town albeit very briefly. When we met there was an 'instant connection' which made me feel like this was going to be a long lasting relationship.

Feel free to contact me for any future requests
