    Our Driver Peter was amazing. He was very attentive and personable. He gave us very great details about the city and did not leave our side. We felt safe and enjoyed his company. The cable car was shut down because of winds so we were not able to go to the top of the mountain but Peter was accommodating.

    Started with Robben island. An ok experience because of its history. Couldn’t go to table Mountain because of weather. So our guide took us around CT, Signal hill and told a lot of history. We got the tickets for Table Mountain and did it on our own a couple of days later. Amazing up there.

    Loved it but we could have spent two hours on table mountain instead of 30 mins. Large crowds meant we had to queue and we had a ferry booked for 11am to Robben island. Excellent tour of the prison with an ex prisoner that was originally sentenced to 25 years for treason but was released after 7 years. Peter our guide for the day was also excellent

    We had a wonderful guide named Joseph who escorted us around for the day. He went above and beyond to ensure all our needs were met when we changed the schedule around.

    Joseph is very professional, polite and friendly. He spoke knowledgeable about all the sites we visited and answered all our questions. We loved every moment of the tour!

    We would, without a doubt, recommend
