    Jean Luc was AMAZING. Even though we had our own vehicle and possibly could have made all these stops ourselves, having such a great tour guide made a huge difference learning the history, economy, nuances on social context, enjoying views rather than stressing over directions. My wife and I are thinking of trying to find a tour guide like Jean Luc for our home town to appreciate our own city more.

This tour was just amazing. The guide Ian, who is a local, was very friendly, respectful and told us a lot about south african history, tradition and culture. He fulfilled all our wished and stopped everywhere we wanted to. We definitely would book this tour again with him. Thanks a lot Ian!

Try and check the weather before the tour. It is amazing when it's sunny. Wear comfortable shoes, they came in handy at Cape Point. Overall it was an amazing experience!!

Due to Covid it was a much smaller group which made the experience more special. No long lines at any of the attractions but everything was functioning like normal.

Brahms was the best, funniest Guide ever! We are going to do the wine tasting with him on Friday. He made the whole journey special for us. Thank you Brahms☺️
