Cape Town was wonderful and Jill showed us all a great time while touring around with her and Hein for 3 fantastic days. The sights, the wine and the food was all excellent. We had a small issue with our bus one day but Jill solved that with a plan B and it was better than our original plan. I... More

We were a family of 5 and our trip was in July 2013. We were referred to Jill by a previous client and we booked 3 days with her. We were thrilled with the service we received. She was able to cater to our specific requirements instead of being bus around with a number of other tourists on a strict... More

We had two days with Hein, Jill's husband in August 2012. He took us to the Karoo to a game reserve for a day as well as a day of whale watching in the area around Hermanus. Hein was a lovely gentleman to be with, the whole family talked with him all day on each trip about South Africa, Cape... More

We travelled to South Africa and spent 5 days in Cape Town. We were planning on renting a car and driving ourselves around, when we reconsidered very last-minute and decided to book 2 days with Specialist. The main reason we booked with them was Jill. We corresponded over email for a couple of days, and several messages, until everything was... More

Jill (owner) took our small group around Capetown and the surrounding area and we had the best time. Jill's deep knowledge of the history and folklore of the region was exceptional and certainly made the trip that much more interesting and memorable. There was a wide variety of activities and sites we wanted to do and see and Jill was... More

We had such a splendid experience with Jill as our guide in Capetown and surrounding area. With only two days available, she was able to guide us to all the important sites in and around Capetown as well as to the Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Bay and a great winery. Her insightful knowledge of all the places and skill... More

I have travelled with Specialist Cape tours on two occasions and would now class Jill (owner) as a friend. She is incredibly knowledgable and easy to travel with. Jill knows the best places and times to visit. At Jill's suggestion we visited the elephants at Knysna early in the morning and were rewarded by being the only people there -... More
