Stop in the Bo-Kaap for a photo with the colourful houses;
Visit Table Mountain via the Cable Car;
Take a drive along Chapman's Peak;

Excellent day really enjoyed morne and his company. Went out his way to make us feel welcome. All round lovely day spent.

Luke was a very good guide - it was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the various sightseeing places. There was enough time for everything

Such a great tour with Morne. We tried to get to Table Mountain but it was closing as we arrived. Unfortunately some of our group stayed up top too long while the rest of us waited at the bottom. Morne had to make the tough call of waiting and causing the rest of the group to miss some of sights or leave those who didn’t follow instructions. He decided to not make sure we didn’t miss any sights and we left. I’m sure he got serious blowback for doing this but we really respected him for honoring our time especially since we had followed instructions. It would’ve been a shame had we missed some of the stops due others not being respectful of our time. The rest of the trip was fantastic! The Cape, Boulder Beach and Bo Kap were spectacular. I was grateful for Morne’s expertise in explaining the history of what we were seeing and the flora and fauna. We had such a fun group that bonded on the trip which made it especially enjoyable for me as a solo traveler. Can’t recommend this tour and Morne enough!


03 Mar, 2024

We had a super tour- despite that some from the group did not respect the guidances from our tour-guide, Morne, who handled the episode in a correct and professional way ! We had a lot of fun and a lot of relevant info from our guide !! We will strongly recommend to expiring this event !
