Danson was an excellent guide. He created such a wonderful experience for us. He is knowledgeable, attentive, flexible, and his love for his country and his pride in his culture was so clear and simple in all his explanations. We saw the city, the nature, the wild life, and had great food. We highly recommend this tour if that’s the only tour you can do in Cape Town do this one.

The tour guide Dawson (Danny) brought this tour to another level. He was friendly, engaging, shared a wealth of information and stories with us and made suggestions for dining, shopping and sightseeing for after the trip as well. The wild animals we came across, Eland, ostrich, baboons on top of the expected seals and penguins were an added bonus. The views at the stops scheduled and unscheduled were amazing.

Albert, our guide, provided a running commentary of historical details during our full day excursion. We saw everything listed and even wild baboons and ostriches. My husband and I usually prefer to rent our own car and travel at our own speed, but all of the various stops provided plenty of time but not TOO much time. We highly recommend the tour and Albert!

This is a great day trip from Cape Town. We were picked up from our hotel and made a few stops on the way down to the Cape of Good Hope. The highlight is the visit to Boulder Beach to see the penguin colony. This is amazing 🐧 The penguins are adorable and so many great opportunities for pictures. The Cape of Good Hope is also incredible. Our guide was a lot of fun. He kept us totally entertained on the van ride and was always ready to step in and take a picture. These tours are a great opportunity to mix with fellow travelers and I would totally recommend for solo travelers.
