An excellent tour with lots of stops. We didn't have much time at the Botanical gardens at the end, but overall it was a great trip. Watch out for the baboons though, don't carry any food on you at the Cape area.

Had an amazing time. Our tour guide was very informative. The little busses are great as there are not too many people and the tour gets on quicker and you can enjoy more attractions in a shorter time.

Amazing trip. Small van pickup was a little bit behind but not due to the fault of the company, but a passenger. Guide was good, got a ton of great pics, and saw some amazing places.
Highly recommend.
