James = brilliant
bethbell100, 22-12-2022
James was a fantastic guide - drove great, very knowledgeable and adapted the day to ensure we fit everything in. We stopped at various places for photos and a small walk and toilet breaks if needed. James took the scenic route when driving which was beautiful. It was amazing to see baboons and ostriches in the wild. Favourite bit - the penguins were amazing to see in their natural environment! Thank you James!

Yvonne_P, 20-12-2022
Absolutely fabulous trip.
We were unable to go to table Mountain in the morning due to high winds but our guide Ruben kept an eye on the trip and we went at the end of the day even though it added 2hrs to the tour and a long day for him.
Ruben told us the history of the cape and introduced us to some of the wildlife. He was more than hapoy to take photos for us and very enthusiastic.
If you do one trip in Cape Town, do this It was amazing.
One recomendation for Viator... Price the ticket with the entrance fees to Table mountain etc, much easier than making payment during the tour.
I have been fortunate to travel extensively, this one one of the best I have taken.

Great trip and plenty to see
Laura_B, 20-12-2022

It was great from the beginning up to the end. Enjoyed everything. The guide and driver, Mr. Armand, is top, providing us with all the required information and many more. Learned a lot, not only about the Table Mountain, Cape of Good Hope and Penguins. Indeed I’ve learned about the history of South Africa. I’d strongly recommend to those thinking in a nice tour in Cape Town

Jean K, 07-01-2023
The care, patience and attention to detail shown to me in planning this tour in Capetown will i know translate into another trip of a lifetime. Price is as per itinerary, but the knowledge of knowing my guests will enjoy this trip was praramount and with minimal fuss.
Thank you James
I didnt have to look further than your company., Prices were just as comparable, but service was beyond expectation.
Excellent tour
Dean G, 07-01-2023
We had a delightful day with our guide Sylvia. She ordered the trip during the day to avoid serious crowds and ensured any waits were very short. You don't get a lot of time at Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point but you get photo stops. Time with the penguins was sufficient. Lunch was at a sit-down restaurant which took away from time spent elsewhere and I would prefer less lunch time but the restaurant was good. Table Mountain cable car was excellent. Don't be discouraged by clouds as above the clouds is a warm, sunny day and Sylvia ensured that we didn't stand in any long lines to come down the mountain. Overall, the trip makes an easy business of getting to the highlights easily with a knowledgeable guide and a good driver. Don't hesitate to book.
It was an awesome experience.

Organized and Amazing!
leshtx, 13-01-2023
Francis is a FABULOUS tour guide. He's fun, patient, accommodating, and runs a highly organized and professional operation. My group and I particularly appreciate that he spoke with a microphone connected to the speakers so that even in the back of the van, we could hear the information he shared about the various sites. Would absolutely tour with this company again!
Great daytrip!
Victor_C, 12-01-2023
