The tour company you used was excellent. The guide was unbelievable and the home we visited and the dinner was outstanding. The host, a musician was very gracious. We visited two clubs and the music was wonderful. A great and exciting tour. Thumbs UP!
Fantastic evening of jazz and meeting and dining with local musician and his family. Sabelo was great in organizing and leading our tour. Highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and were so pleased to have been able to experience an authentic, believable, and interactive evening. The fact that the music was also to our taste was a bonus. We actually went to a shop selling musical instruments yesterday to buy tambourines, and maraccas!
In fact, I loved every ounce of the tour and did not mind the late night. You have a unique vision and I am raving about this tour to all travelling to CT. I hope I can return with my family soon. All the best, Brigette
This was interesting. We had a good time. For those getting to the meeting point, you need to do a better job getting directions on getting to the place.
Very interesting tour. Totally appreceiated the local perspective and hospitality of the jazz musician visited. Muscians were all wonderful artists.
It was amazing. The Jazz Safari was our favorite thing; it was so special
I don't know if Jazz safari is an apt name. Spent most time with South African pianists in the Townships of Cape flats and some neighbours coming and joining them in a jembe session. Nothing to do with your Jazz clubs, though we did go to a small gig played by some local university group! The food was OK. Do it but a bit steep for what one gets in return.
It was interesting, not what i expected but a good inside look at the local culture. i would recommend it. if you are looking for a 5 star experience, this tour is not for you.
I will never recommend this fake jazz tour. First off, we ended up in a very sketchy part of town at night to meet two "Jazz Artists". It was patheti and painful. We were polite and courteous. Viator needs to screen better. I was forced to pick a star rating before submitting, so I picked one - just so the message could be seen. Otherwise, I would have chosen zero stars.
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback! We received a reply from the tour operator concerning this review, we are including the reply below:
One of the musicians we are working with is Hilton Schilder, a Cape Town musician with an international reputation. Sometimes we have guests who are ill matched to the product, and who may be uncomfortable with the intimacy of the experience. On this particular night, they were the only guests, and for some, that can be too conspicuous, they can't just slink in the darkness and enjoy the jazz.
We hope this information helps you, and future guests in picking the most suitable tours for you. Thank you again for your feedback, and we wish you Happy Travels.
