Sehr schöne Tour! Man besucht Orte die man unbedingt gesehen haben muss, wenn man in Kapstadt ist. Malerische Landschaften und bezaubernde Strände bekommt man hier zu sehen. Unser Guide Patrick hat sich Zeit genommen uns alles zu erklären und zu zeigen. Sehr angehnem und freundlich. Absolut lohnenswerter Trip!

Wonderful tour. Our driver and guide Patrick was very knowledgable and new a lot about the various sites we visited as well as a good grasp of history. The views from scapegoat point were fantastic. The penguins at Boulders we’re worth seeing.

Patrick was so friendly and knowledgeable (and a good photographer to boot!) - he gave us such a great insight into life in Cape Town, the animals and flora of the region, as well as the food! We had great luck seeing animals in the reserve & had no queue to take a picture at the Copa of Good Hope. It was great having the flexibility of a private tour as we could spend as much or as little time as we wanted in each place- and we had perfect timing to catch a beautiful sunset at Haut Bay as we returned to the city.

Patrick was a great tour guide! Nice to have a private tour and go at our own pace. It was the perfect amount of time to see the Cape of Good Hope.
