The whole experience was fantastic. As this is my first time in Cape Town this was a great trip as their are so many things to see. James was an amazing tour guide. He was very informative from start to finish. He was happy to answer all of our questions & made the trip very enjoyable.

Reagan and Braeden were amazing guides who work together like a hand in a glove. From the moment they picked us up till they dropped us off they smiled and made the experience wonderful. You won’t believe what you get for the money, it’s such a value. You get a history lesson, nature course and smile the whole time. If you’re looking at to head down to the Cape, don’t go any further than these guys.

So worth of money! The guide was very knowledgable, funny and energetic! Besides seeing penguin & cape of good hope, we get to learn about cape town through its history. The guide also know where are photo spots and the funny rock shapes from years of experience as the guide. On our way we got to see wild animals!! It was a mini safari I was looking for. Disclaimer: the animal presence is not in the control of the tour organiser lol. Out of many good things, the prep email could be improved. The email sent 1 day before the trip said we need to prepare cash for the entrance & lunch (@3 Mar all places accept contactless payment). We were traveling with a travel debit card, very few cash at hand and this worried us, given little time to prepare. With the worry, we missed the pick up time at the end of the email. Our false but we also tried to reach out via whatsapp the day before but no one monitor. If there were no hick up at the beginning of the trip, it would be 100% perfect trip
