    Der sehr kompetente und liebenswürdige Führer. Es war ein wundervoller Tag mit viel Geschichte, Geologie und Biologie

    I did a full day Cape Peninsula tour. I picked the this tour because the itinerary showed 15 highlights. I assumed that we would be stopping at all 15 highlights, but mostly we just drove by most of the places. We did stop a few times for a view point, but mostly we were in car. We did stop at Hout Bay (optional seal tour), Cape Good Hope/Cape Point (for lunch, althought we could have used an extra half hour to enjoy this a bit more), Boulder Beach (optional Pengiun sighting), and Kirstenbosch (for a short visit, which for us was less than 45 mins). After the pick ups, the tour started at 9am. I would suggest to either start earlier, as the distances are quiet big or skip a few highlights. Looking back the entire day felt really rushed. I really wanted to stop at Muizenberg, which we did, but just for 5 mins. And in the end it was at the wrong color houses too. I felt a little bit misleaded, so changing the program will give visitors a better idea of what to expect. Our guide, Cheryl, was lovely and had good knowledge on the area. She did try to accommodate our wishes.

    Great tour that covered a ton of the main sites. It was a full day tour where we saw Hout Bay, Seal Island, Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach/Penguins, Muizenberg Beach, Kirstenbosch Gardens. A lot of add on charges for tickets that we weren’t made aware of before the tour (boat to Seal Island, furnicular to Cape Point, entrance to Boulders Beach). I highly recommend the hike from Cape Point to Cape of Good Hope.

    We were picked up from our hotel by Denver our guide for the day. He was so interesting and knowledgeable about the history of Cape Town - how he remembered so many dates of settlers and their names I'll never know! He drove carefully, gave us time at each stop to get a good look around and explained what to look for. On the way to the Cape we stopped at Hout Bay for an optional seal island boat trip which we didn't bother with as saw seals in the V & A docks. We then visited Cape Point, went up the Flying Dutchman funicular, went to the signs at Cape of Good Hope for a photo opportunity (nothing else there) and in the park saw baboons, ostrich and antelope. From there we travelled to Boulders Beach to see the amazing penguins. Before returning to our hotel we had a 30 minute walk around the tree top canopy in Kirstenbosch. Again Denver provided a running commentary on the plants and trees making our short visit informative. Can recommend this tour company

    We had a full day private tour for a group of 5 people. Our guide Farooq was amazing, funny, and very friendly. he explained everything on the way in details and tried his best to enjoy our time because of him, we also booked the safari tour as well the next day and he did all the arrangements and gave us a good prices as well highly recommend the tour. everything was really great and nice P.S. we should have a wifi on the tour, but it seems the company did not place it in the car before we leave. (that was the only comment we have)

    Great experience. Excellent service. The trip was all worth it. The driver/your guide was courteous, knowledgeable with excellent customer service.

    Já começou terrível porque esqueceram de me buscar de manhã. Entrei em contato e meia hora depois apareceram com um motorista pra me levar até o grupo que já estava na primeira parada há uns 30 minutos de distância. Depois o guia perdeu 100 rands e isso levou mais de 30 minutos esperando ele procurar o dinheiro. Ficamos sem almoço até as 3 da tarde, e quando finalmente paramos pra comer, o guia queria que pedíssemos a comida para viagem, sem nem poder sentar. Reclamamos e então ele deixou a gente almoçar tranquilo no restaurante. Faltou profissionalismo diversas vezes. Uma pena, porque os lugares são incríveis.

    The trip felt rush! So little time{like 5-10 min)on the good spots like cape of good hope and spent so much time at the garden which the tour guide ddnt let us explore the garden by ourselves and was reading the description on each stop at the garden, and then telling us what he read. We could just read it by ourselves! Such a waste of time.
