3 Amazing days spent seeing the best of Cape Town. Our guide, Morne Hill, gave us a great introduction to all things Cape Town. We were able to see sites we wouldn’t have seen on our own. He shared a lot of information regarding the history of the sites we saw and of South Africa in general. He gave great recommendations of places to eat or additional sites to see on our own. We so appreciated the safety tips he gave us while we navigated our way through Cape Town. Thank you Morne Hill and the iPhone is still superior!!!

The beauty of this type of tour is that 1) it covers virtually everything one would expect to see in the Cape Town area; 2) it is customized to suit your wishes. For example, we are not wine drinkers, so on the third day, we visited vineyards, but he selected the ones that had tastings in wine and chocolate and cheese. He knew we are art lovers, so he chose a vineyard with an outstanding art collection.; 3) the tour guide ("nature boy") knows the areas and was most helpful.

We had a great time on the tour. Our driver and guide was exceptional. Everything was done on time. Big thank you to Morne.

Our tour guide Alex was wonderful and friendly. From the very first day he picked us up on time from our hotel and showed us all the places as per the itinerary along with sharing historical tid-bits and anecdotal trivia of the places we passed by. We couldn't do the Table Mountain on Day 1 due to weather conditions, but Alex kept checking for weather updates the following days and finally managed to fit it into our schedule on Day 3 when the weather obliged. The itirenary was also well charted out by Beyond Africa Safaris - covering all the important highlights one would might to cover during a short stay at Capetown. Overall great experience.. we didn't have to worry about anything during our tours - from travel, to entry tickets to cruises, wine estates, Boulder beach penguins, etc. and even restaurant suggestions (meal costs had to be borne by us as mentioned by the tour company earlier) - it was all very smooth & peaceful. Definitely recommend to all who wish to have a hassle-free travel across Capetown along with understanding the history & stories behind various places.

Morna 😉 truly showed us how much he loves his country! He gave us all the details about the politics, community, and nature. He went out of the way to take us to restraunts we would enjoy. By the end, he felt like family!
