5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

We had an incredible day, seeing the whales, penguins and wine tasting. But what really made the day was our driver/guide, Samson who was incredibly knowledgeable and kept us entertained all day and couldn't do enough for us. I would highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky you might just get Samson as your guide. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Just by chance we had the same driver both days for our privately booked tours. Let me start by saying how great it was to get to know Barnabas M. He is a South Africa Specialist so besides taking us to the most beautiful coastal places he also gave us detailed history behind what we were seeing. Beautiful vistas, penguins, seals, whales and don't let me forget beautiful wineries! It was two days of pure fun, lots of laughter and he's flexible to change up things last minute should you desire a longer stay at any one destination. He wasn't watching his watch to be done with his day he went out of his way to make sure we saw what we wanted and had a good time, no matter what time that meant he clocked out. I highly recommend both these tours and asking for Barnabas.

I thought I should copy and paste my reply from previous review and add in that we saw Southern Right Whales on our excursion. We actually watched a pod of about 4. Off in the distance we could see a whale showing off his tail as ours never did that. We did not witness any breaching but I enjoyed the tour.

Ask Barnabas to take you to Creation Winery. Do the 7 course small plate/wine tasting, the food is outstanding! A beautiful day that was.
