    One of our favorite parts of our 3 week trip to Cape Town. Highly recommend this tour early in your trip to acquaint yourself with local history and culture. Ask for Justin, who was a fount of knowledge and an in incredible guide. He caters to your personal preferences and his love of SA shows in his attention to detail.

    This two-day trip was great! I had a pickup from Stellenbosch, and had a nice introduction to the rest of the group by our guide TK. Het took the time to get to know each member of the group and checking for their preferences (we were a group of four solo travelers) It was a long road to botlierskoppark, but our guide understood the balance between silence and giving some explanation on the surroundings. The 6h travel was ideally divided in blocks of 2h with nice rest stops.
    At arrival in botlierspark our lunch was ready to serve, which we pre-ordered in the minivan thanks to TK's organization skills. Our 4x4 safari started immediately after lunch, guided by wildlife ranger James, we were lucky that we didn't had to share the vehicle with other groups. This private setting gave James the opportunity to do whatever we wanted, which was great! Thanks to James eagle eyes, we managed to see four out big-Five. James could see a lion or a baby rhino from kilometers away! Although the drive was rough, as expected on a safari, I really enjoyed. We didn't had a specific bush walk, James wanted to emphasize on seeing as much as animals as possible, but he allowed us to go out the jeep and pose for pictures with giraffes or rhino's!
    After this magnificent experience, we had a drive to our hostel in Oudtshoorn, were we enjoyed the Ostrich BBQ prepared by Mario the owner of the Uthando Hostel. Although we were exhausted of the day, we had a late night next to the camp fire and the unique atmosphere a hostel can bring.
    The following day we left after a nice breakfast towards buffelsdrift game resort. We opted in on the walk with the orphans elephant which was an amazing experience, we had close contacts with the animals and were informed well about their background and living conditions. They are used to human contact and show different behavior then wild animals, but are for sure not used as a circus act.
    A final activity was a bush ride throughout buffelsdrift park, and especially compared to the day before this was not that special. The names describes it well, a gentle ride through the park, while encountering some boks or girafs... It was a very family proof activity.
    Ofcourse we needed to head back to Stellenbosch/Cape Town, another 6h drive over the very scenic route 62. Our guide TK adjusted the paste again to the suggestions of the group, with a nice lunch break and if needed some bathroom stops.

    In summary, I think the long drive is worth the effort. Of course depending on the animals and even the wildlife ranger, the botlierskop park is a nice safari for those who want to catch a glimpse of the game in South Africa.

    My partner and I completed the Table Mountain hike in April with our guide Miles. It was such a fabulous trip, we couldn't believe we had managed to do it when we got to the top. This was all thanks to Miles' encouragement and infinite knowledge. Miles made us feel so comfortable during the hike and not once did we feel unsafe, even when we were scrambling up the side of a mountain! The views around the mountain are truly breath taking at every angle and you would not have gained the 360 perspective of Table Mountain just going to the top. Thankyou so much Miles!!

    Already from home, in Germany, I booked the Highlights and Hidden Gems of Cape Town tour, led by Sebastion, a seasoned guide. We met around 9:30 am in front of Truth Coffee Roasting. From there we started to explore the city of Cape Town. Sebastian never ceased to amaze me with stories and information about the history and the current state of Cape Town and the surroundings. He was an incredibly useful source of detailed information that I used later to further explore the city on my own. We finished the hiking tour at the V&A Waterfront, where I spent the rest of the afternoon, and which is clearly a nice place to relax as well as for shopping. I can absolutely recommend this tour, especially when you start exploring Cape Town. But I would for sure also recommend any tour with Sebastion, because he knows everything about this city its surroundings and history, and has a very nice way of explaining things.

    Fantastic- no comment on bicycle tour as did not do. The site is most informative with a really interesting museum, shop and restaurant serving unusual bush tucker and food from the surrounding area. The First People of South Africa have taken abuse and are the most underprivileged people - so support this wonderful initiative! Well done all involved

    Very friendly informative guide Bhirdev, who incorporated into the tour a lot of information on the history of Cape Town.
    Was nice to visit places we wouldn't have done without local knowledge and guidance.

    This was by far one of the best walking tours I’ve done in all my travels. My husband and I will do a walking tour in each city we visit but this one sets itself apart because of the authenticity that came along with it. You get off the beaten path and our guide (Zack) was incredibly knowledgeable. He knew everyone in the neighborhood and made us feel like family and not like tourists. Him and his family even do cooking classes in their home which they invited us into and we got to try some amazing food! Zack knew so much about the street art and gave us a new appreciation for it. If you are looking for something unique, authentic & inspiring this is the tour for you. Thank you !!

    Great experience and a fantastic way to explore a new neighbourhood and meet new people. Terrence was very welcoming, relaxed and made me feel comfortable in different fotoshoot-poses. It is an amazing way to make a special memory in the fabulous Mothercity <3

    Thanks again Terrence!

    Rafiq was an excellent and enthisiastic guide. He has a passion for his neighborhood and his culture. We learned so much about the history of the neighborhood and some of the challenges that it is currently facing. Bo Kaap is so much more than a collection of colorful houses- taking this tour will help you understand how special it is.

    This is a unique tour company who operates and offers the service coming from a true passion. Riaan was the guide for this incredible hike. First of all, communication to arrange the hike and details were excellent. Riaan was professional, knowledgeable and a super friendly person. He prepared us well for what to expect - being both realistic and encouraging. I felt completely safe and in good hands. This is a beautiful hike that is slightly challenging. I was a little nervous about some of the scrambling and heights involved (I didn't even know what scrambling was before the hike), but it was safe and totally doable with Riaan's expert guidance. I definitely felt a sense of accomplishment at the end.
