We spent 2 outstanding days with Patrick. We customized our trip. Our first day was a visit to Stellenbosch and tour of the winelands with a number of winery tours. Our second day was an opportunity to see the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point, the penguins and a number of other stops throughout the day to see Noordhoek, Chapmanspeak, Simons Town and Muizenberg. We could have spent 3-4 days on such a visit. Each photo was better than the previous photo with every mile truly breathtaking. Patrick was an outstanding guide who clearly was an accomplished hiker as he shared great tips for hikes on Table Mountain and Lion's Head. I wish that we would have had more time to experience Cape Town and the Cape with Patrick as 2 days was not nearly enough. In all of our years of traveling I can say that I have never had such an outstanding guide. We feel like we have a new friend in Cape Town and hope to see Patrick again int he future. We were already planning where we would like to spend more time on our next visit and we will most certainly spend time using Patrick's services with Cape Escape Tours. Patrick, Thank you for your special attention. We now know why you love the Cape.

4 of us did an e bike tour from Cape Town to Cape Point, which involved 3 cycling sections, about 35 km in total and the rest in the van. We had a fantastic time with Patrick, he was a great guide and brilliant company. The bikes we had were superb, we have done a lot of e biking and these were in a different league to anything we have ridden before, so light and amazingly responsive. The tour was varied, beautiful scenery and Patrick was flexible and responsive to our needs and wishes. He picked us up and returned us to our hotel, it was a full day, from 8am until 6pm. Highlights were the cycling in the national park to the Cape of Good Hope and the penguins at Boulders Bay. We would not hesitate to book with Patrick again!
