“Excellent Guide”
Reviewed 21 February 2017

Our guide, Jeremy, was excellent. We spent two days with him and he was very polite, kind and patient with us throughout. Our party didn't have a lot of hiking experience, but he got us through it with smiles intact!

Dear aroth210, Thank you for your review of your 2 day overnight Table Mountain hiking tour. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the company of your AWOL Guide Jeremy, he really is an excellent guide and a very experienced Table Mountain Hiking guide and his cooking skills are excellent. Thank you again for the recommendation, we look very much forward to welcoming you back to South Africa for more hiking adventures, possibly in the beautiful Cederberg mountain region to explore the San art, rock pools and the Wolfberg Cracks. Kind regards, Helen AWOL Tours.

Reviewed 21 February 2017

Great half-day tour with family. Great guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. Beautiful experience. Would recommend to others. Definitely not cheap and half-day is long enough.

“Great city cycle tour”
Reviewed 5 February 2017

We were 4 people who booked a private city cycle tour. It turned out to be a great way to see some of the city. Our guide Niels made sure we never felt unsafe driving among the other traffic, and he did give os a lot of information along the way. Except from the little climb to Bo-Kaap it was a very easy stroll through the city and Green Point Park. The staff at Awol Tours were extremely accomodating and helpful. Highly recommendable.
