I had a wonderful day. My tour guide Leticia was super welcoming and was able to tell me a lot of interesting things about Cape Town and its residents. Leticia picked me up directly from my hostel and then we drove together to the first point. At each point there was enough time to look around and my tour guide gave me enough space to enjoy the view from Signal Hill and Table Mountain. In general, the private tour was very much tailored to my needs. A wonderful tour that I wholeheartedly recommend. I laughed a lot on the tour, learned new things and visited wonderful places.

My guide, Leticia was very knowledgeable and personable person. We went to Bo Kapp initially then Table Mountain which unfortunately was covered in cloud and haze - out of the company’s control and quite typical of this time of year, so I was unable to gain the full experience. I was driven around Capetown and was told about the rich history behind street names, buildings, statues and squares. Thoroughly recommended for solo travellers, Leticia is knowledgeable and lovely!

At first I was skeptical whether such a tour was something for us. Rodney picked us up from the hotel on time and our spirits rose. A nice guy very helpful knowledgeable u accommodating. Our group of 5 was great. We had lots of fun. We saw everything and had enough time. It was the best day of our vacation. Thanks

A good experience! Spectacular places and breathtaking landscapes!! A special thanks to the guide Leticia for her enormous sympathy.

I had an amazing Tour, and the guide was so friendly!
