Amazing tour and great tour guide.
Sarah_B, Sep 2022
This was an amazing tour! We went in September, Reagan was our guide and he was great. Very knowledgeable about the area and the area's history. He was on time to pick us up at our hotel. The Chapman's peak drive was beautiful. We did a fun 45min boat tour at Seal Island. Cape of good hope was beautiful. One of the highlights was Reagan letting me and my sisters hike from the Cape of good hope to Cape point while he drove our mom to Cape point. It was about a 45 min hike and it would not have been possible without us knowing that our mom would be safe with out us. She said he always knew where she was and watched closely for us in the distance while we hiked. We ended the day with Boulders Penguin colony and he allowed us plenty of time. We got to do all the things we wanted and had a great day. I would highly recommend this tour.
Stunning once in a lifetime tour
Caroline_K, Sep 2022
Absolutely INCREDIBLE, once in a lifetime tour. The Cape of Good hope and the trip there through the seaside towns and mountains is stunning and pictures can’t do justice to how beautiful everything is. We also had the best tour guide, Ray. He was incredibly knowledgeable and shared such fun facts and stories with us. When we were all reminiscing about our favorite parts of the day, Ray was one of them for all of us. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Cape Peninsula in a day
CherylO, Sep 2022
This was such a fulfilling day and a great way to kickstart our Cape Town portion of our trip. Starting off at signal hill and then making our way along the coast to Chapmen’s peak. Gavin was amazing at what he does and we truly enjoyed seeing the Cape and the peninsula at his direction. During our tour of Cape Point we saw ostriches and baboons as well as toured the lighthouse.

Penguins and Wine
Oliver_W, Aug 2022
Our tour of the Cape was such a wonderful experience for our first real tour of the Cape Town Area! Charlton was such a wonderful guide who catered to all of our requests, and his recommendations for lunch and coffee spots were to die for. We stopped by Boulders Beach to get some photos with the penguins, and closed off a perfect day with a wine and chocolate tasting at Groot Constantia. We could not have asked for a better guide and experience.
Amazing Summary of the Cape
Trent_P, Aug 2022
There was sooo much beauty, so much to see. Our guide, Ruben, was awesome. He had more knowledge and history than most teachers!! So kind and friendly too. (He’s worth asking for by name!) Wild orangutans were my biggest surprise 😁

Not a good experience. Felt rushed.
Keith_B, Aug 2022
Rushed. Driver asked me to sit in front and not with my wife at the back - some excuse with police but I see other guides with their guests riding in the rear seat. Felt rushed, did not have enough time to enjoy Penguin colony (we ended up finishing the tour 40mins early so I don't see why we have to rush). Since we had time, I asked if we can have 1 small stop along the way. Driver said no because of some insurance reasons. Had to stop for petrol (don’t know why driver did not fill the tank before starting the tour. Driver ferrying passengers on a daily basis, so used to the routine and have probably grown tired and never bother to make experience more personalized. Just my honest to goodness feedback

Fun day around the peninsula
Nancy_W, Aug 2022
We had an incredible day seeing all the sites down from Cape Town to the Cape Point and then back, including seeing the penguins at Boulders Bay, the Cape Point, the Cape of Good Hope and a stop at Groot Constantia winery for a wine tasting. David, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and so nice. He kept us on time and was very helpful with suggestions for other things to do around town while we visited. I would highly recommend this tour, and especially our guide, David. He was fantastic.

This tour is a wonderfull experience ! We learnt a lot about history, geography, animals .... the beauty of the landscapes is breathtaking !!! Ruben is a fantastic guide who takes care of each person within the group and with energy and enthousiasm shares his love for his beautiful country.
Bad weather, great guide
Chris_M, Aug 2022
The weather was overcast, cool and drizzly the day we were booked. Leon was an excellent guide and saved the trip by sharing his love for his work and excitement about the area we were seeing. Although the vistas were disappointing, we were able to see it through his eyes. The trip out to see the seals and standing atop the Cape of Good Hope were highlights. I highly recommend Leon as a guide.
Fun and relaxing overview of Cape Town
Binu_G, Aug 2022
Very relaxing and enjoyable full day private tour. Our driver/guide Armand picked us in a nice Merc Benz on time. Armand is very knowledgeable about Cape Town, very polite and accommodating. I asked him to stop multiple times at random places as I wanted to take pictures. The tour covered the entire island and took about 8.5 hours. We hadn't purchased any tickets in advance as it was low season. We highly recommend this tour!
Reuben is the best
Douglas_V, Aug 2022
Reuben was terrific. Very engaging and incredibly knowledgeable. We would recommend him anytime for a tour and history of Cape Town and surrounding areas
Great Day
bthomson5173, Aug 2022
From the minute we got picked up by Rubén’s the service was first class. He had an amazing amount ok knowledge and I would recommend him to anyone.
Great experience, nice walk down memory lane
Melody_L, Aug 2022
Armand was our guide for the day. He was friendly and professional. He was also very kind and understanding towards our 3 year old who got upset when it rained and we couldn't see the penguins yet. He also made special effort to engage my 3 year old and would alow down in the Cape of Good Hope national park to point out animals. He was also very kind to accommodate a small detour to Klein Constantia so I could get a bottle of wine. It was a great walk down memory lane for my husband and I (we had our honeymoon 6 years ago and did similar attractions). We had a great time thanks to Armand.
Best Day Ever! Thanks Armand
Kimberly_C, Jul 2022
Armand was very flexible and catered to our schedule on the private tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and a great photographer. It was evident that he is very experienced and brought us his local expertise. He had strong relationships with people along each of the stops which enriched our trip experience. Would highly recommend
Luca_T, Jul 2022
Armand has been a very nice and professional guide. I suggest him. Very beautiful places and wonderful landscapes
