The best way to sight see. Comfortable coach with friendly and knowledgable staff. Very informative and the coach took us right to the heart of the attractions. Paul (The lead guide) along with Wendy and Jonathan were excellent and really made the day that little bit more special.

The trip was fantastic, Paul was very informative and accommodating. The scenery was outstanding and the history fascinating. You also get enough time to explore the surroundings of each stop. However the history itself was from a totally European perspective. The land was not devoid of people when they arrived.The natives were here first and are still here, but there was no mention of them or their history. Maybe that is something that can be looked into, so that it gives a balanced view.

Our guide Charles was outstanding. His knowledge and delivery were interesting and funny. The Cape point tour was the best tour I have had in a long time largely due to Charles's commentary aided by the sightings of baboon troops, antelope, penguins, daddies and stunning scenery.
