Karen_M, Aug 2023
I had SUCH an amazing day with Tanya, it was more than I hoped for in a day tour! She had so much knowledge of the history, the plants and animals, and just wonderful banter as we drove. I got to see so much of Cape Town and it was so personal—highly recommend!!!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
I was so happy to see your 5 star review, Karen. It was a privilege to share Cape Town with you. Thank you for your kindness.
Expensive four what was on offer
Poppy_M, July 2023
Even though Tanya was very knowledgeable I found she didn’t stick to the itinerary and I missed out on seeing Cape Point. She often went off the beaten track to show me something that took too long and was of no interest to me. I was not provided with a water bottle as mentioned in the inclusions. Tanya also got the date wrong and came a day early. We spent too long at the botanical gardens even though it was interesting it was just the same species of floral. I also thought that the private tour was far too expensive for what was on offer
Wonderful Guide and trip
Justin_S, July 2023
Tania was an excellent tour guide! She was pleasant and informative about all the South Africa questions we had. She went put of her way to show us animals and sites we had never seen before. It was a great trip for our first day in Capetown!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Hello Justin, thank you for this special review. I tried mailing you, but I think the address is incorrect.
Wonderful day exploring Cape Town
LisaMarie_C, June 2023
Tanya was wonderful, very knowledgeable and a delight to spend the day with!! Her good luck even allowed us to see two whales, the first sightings of the season!! All of the stops were wonderful, lived the gardens, and Tanya can tell you about every bird and plant!! Highly recommend!
Response from Host, June 2023
It makes me very happy to hear that you enjoyed your tour. The whales was such a bonus and I will not forget the moments we had together. Enjoy the rest of your adventures.
Great experience to see the important parts of Cape Town often missed.
Hope_D, June 2023
Tania was a great guide. She shared a lot of history, knew the right stops and places to visit, and made even a rainy, foggy day one of my best days in Cape Town!
Response from Host, June 2023
Thank you, for choosing me to do your tour, Hope. I appreciate the time you took to write a review. It was a privilege to share Cape Town with you and I do hope our paths will cross again. Your enthusiasm for the nature and animals we saw is contagious.
Such an amazing day!
Vanessa_R, Apr 2023
I highly recommend this tour. There were 13 of us traveling (8-77) so having the private vehicle was awesome. Mark was the perfect tour guide. He was friendly, knowledge, accommodating and kept our large group moving. He knew all the perfect routes and places to stop for amazing views. He even got our party a last minute reservation for lunch. I would request Mark if we return to Cape Town.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for your positive feedback, Vanessa. We hope to take you and your family on tour again one day. I'm happy you all enjoyed the day around the peninsula.
Amazing day in Cape Town!
Tina_A, Apr 2023
This was an absolutely wonderful tour! Tania arrived bright and early and created a custom all day tour based on what we wanted to see. Since we only had a couple of days in Cape Town there was a lot to do. Tania went over her plan for the day with us and off we went. to say we packed a lot into the day would be an understatement. We managed to to see Penguin Beach, Cape of Good hope, hit a winery for wine tasting, Simon's Town, Chapman's Peak Drive and much more. Tania took us to all the best spots and even a few hidden local gems. She was personable and professional and we truly had a wonderful time with her. My family and I would highly recommend booking with her. You won't be disappointed!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
It made my day when I read your wonderful review. Thank you! You made the Peninsula and Wine Tour so much more fun. Thank you for recommending our tours. All the very best for you & family. Tania

Response from Host, Dec 2022
Namaste Deepika, Our hike together at Cape Point is something I won't easily forget. We had wonderful conversations and you made the day interesting and fun. Thank you for the 5star review. Hope to see you again in April.
Outstanding guide
Shaun, Aug 2022
Our guide was so pleasant to talk with, very knowledgeable about the area, and very helpful/flexible in keeping our young son interested and showing us all of the amazing sights. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great personal touch on visiting the Cape.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you Shaun. I'm happy you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate your review. Warm Regards to the rest of the family.

Our tour with Tania was incredible. Tani has great energy and a great sense of humor while knowing so much about the sights and history. Tani assured we saw and did exactly what we wanted and was flexible with the schedule. She kept the day fun and interesting!

Best tour of Cape Town
Rob_C, Feb 2022
Mark was fantastic! He is very knowledgeable about Cape Town. He knew the best spots to go to and knew the history behind each place. He was also very flexible and tailored the trip to best suit what I wanted to do. I can’t recommend Mark enough!!
