We made the booking via Getyourguide but the excursion was actually arranged through a company called Lokafy who aim to provide a local to walk around the city with you to provide a very personal and candid view of the city. I was impressed that Lokafy bother to contact me to ensure I understood the type of guide I would be meeting and that it would not be a lecture of dates and facts. Our guide, Fred was really great and walked around Cape Town with us for four hours; the experience was like being hosted by a friend who gave you a personal insight into the places you were visiting. Some communication with Fred ahead of our meeting had given some specific interests and he went out of his way to try to include these in the itinerary for our walk. We covered a large area from V&A Waterfront, through the City centre and Bo-Kaap, Fred was aware it was our first day in Cape Town and made is feel safe (but streetwise) as we walked around. It was a fantastic orientation tour-recommended.

Wir waren mit Dieter für 6h in Kapstadt unterwegs. Dieter ist ein äußerst gut informierter und sympathischer Guide, der uns in der Kürze der Zeit sachkundig durch die Stadt geführt, das Wichtigste gezeigt und Hintergründe gut erklärt hat. Er war sehr gut für unsere Tour vorbereitet, hatte sie abwechslungsreich gestaltet und mit vielen Highlights versehen, die wir allein niemals gefunden hätten. Darüber hinaus gab er uns auch nachfolgend während unseres gesamten Aufenthalts wertvolle Tipps für weitere Unternehmungen in Stadt und Umland. Beste Empfehlung unsererseits!!!

Christiane hat die Führung wirklich perfekt gemacht. Sie hat mich pünktlich abgeholt und hat mir alles, was wir vorher besprochen haben, gezeigt. Tolle und viele Informationen über die gezeigten Sehenswürdigkeiten waren dabei. Habe mich zu jeder Zeit perfekt aufgehoben gefühlt. Genauso willkommen.
