I think the tour was good and informational - we saw a good amount of the city but I think using central station as a point of reference rather than dam square I find more useful than where the tour started. While it makes sense and seeing dam square is important, I had a difficult time getting my bearings while I was there.
Cape Town, South Africa
I booked this tour after I read the reviews and it was not as good as the reviews had said. I was incredibly disappointed with the game drive part of it because it was very artificial instead of what a natural game drive is really supposed to be. The guide knew exactly where the animals would be and the lions were kept behind a gate in a different section of the park. While the land is big and the animals are roaming free, some of them are fed and it wasn't a game drive experience that seemed very authentic to me. If it was the only game drive I did on my trip, it would've been disappointing that this is the only way that I saw African animals.
Having said that, the pickup was on time and the driver was really nice. The game drive driver was very knowledgeable about animals and was really good. The food at the lodge is incredible as well, almost worth it just for the food - but not for that price.
