The tour guide (named "Super") was outstanding. He was very informative on the entire history of Cape Town and did his best to get us to Table Mountain after the fog lifted. Outstanding.

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide "Super" was a 'Super Guide". He provided alot of information and made the tour very personal.

Very good introduction to Cape Town. Good guide. Spectacular views from Table Mountain. Unexpectedly interesting visit to the diamond polishing business.

Great trip & very informative guide in Cape Town. No where near enough time at top of Table Mountain. Only given 45mins when in fact 2-3 hrs would be better, certainly for me.

This was a superb trip. The mountain was initially closed, but the guide kept in phone contact and took us straight to the cable car as soon as it opened. It really was a breathtaking experience! The guide was very knowledgeable about his city and was keen and enthusiastic to share it with us.

Well worth taking this trip. We were in Cape Town for our shortest short break ever so no time to spare if we got arrangements wrong. Our driver - Super- was brilliant with his knowledge and information. As a family we wholly recommend this half day trip.

Great tour Guide Elaine. She kept us updated on Table Mountain opening the day of our tour and had an alternate plan if the mountain was going to remain closed.

We could not take the Table Mountain Tour because of wind - but the City tour was very good.

I took this tour on the day of my arrival, and it was wonderful giving me a great overview of the city and ideas on where to spend more of my time. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and the cable car to the top of Table Mountain was closed, but the views from as far as our tour guide could take us were absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Viator!

The tour guide seemed quite knowledgeable about the history of the city and was able to show us quite a lot. The weather prevented us from going up to Table Mountain, but everything else was great!

Unfortunately it was too windy for us to go up Table Mountain as there were gale force winds on the day of our tour but out tour guide Super was excellent and it was a very good city tour.

The experience was good. I have two comments. First, we definitely should spend more time in Table Mountain as the title of this tour also focusing on that subject. 40 minutes is not enough. Second with that price, I think all admission tickets should be counted in.

Excellent all-around tour of the city. Unfortunately Table Mountain was closed due to gail force winds, but we did end up going to Lion's Head instead which was still very cool with an amazing view. Definitely worth the money, especially if you don't have a lot of time or do not have a car.

Our guide, Iggy, was very personable and knowledgeable. We had a very pleasant day, especially up on Table Mountain given ample time to walk around on the top and visit the gift shop, then touring through Cape Town, the Cape Malay neighbourhood, Camp's Bay and the market downtown. We met lovely people from other parts of the world, also on the tour. Well worth it for the general orientation to Cape Town, and especially, for the spectacular views atop Table Mountain.

Couldn't do the table mountain because of clouds. The driver/guide was excellent.

Elaine was a very pleasant guide and, together with our very patient driver, showed us a lot of the city in a very short time. Table Mountain is beautiful but the weather up top can change in an instant and the advice to avoid a long wait for a ride to the fog-covered summit saved us time and disappointment (the view from the base of the gondola was terrific, tho'). The Castle was a great education and the Malay Quarter was great fun ! If you are pressed for time, or if you just want an orientation to the city, this is a great choice.

Good tour but guide was a bit flustered and there wasn't enough time to go to the Museum as it takes so long to get up and down the mountain, so I felt we could have done the mountain from the hop on and hop off bus and not wasted so much time out of our tour, otherwise the tour was good. The tour guide showed patience and he actually gave us more time than was allotted due to the amount of time spent queuing for the mountain.

Gorgeous view of Cape Town and Table Bay. Quaint cafe atop the mountain. Cable car rotates and offers stunning 360 views of everything. If your tour starts early enough, you can visit and go inside the Castle of Good Hope (do this tour on a weekday to see the changing of the guards and noon gun).

This trip was great because it shows you all the highlights and hotspots of cape town. Then you get to go back if your real interested and explore more leisurely. I felt I got all I needed in the time spent at each destination. I was grateful for the tour because I got to realize how close my hotel was to a good amount of the attractions of cape town. the only disappointing thing was I didn't get to go up to table mountain due to yearly maintenance.
