We enjoyed the tour which included Table Mountain, the South African Museum and the Castle of Good Hope. Our guide was experienced, professional and accommodating.

The tour was great and full of interesting information. I wish we were able to give more of an opinion about where we were going based on our interests. Instead of hitting every “tourist” stop, we could have skipped some of the places we paid to get into. We had lots of great photos taken of us by our guide which was nice. It’s very convenient and a safe feeling to have a guide that knows the area, you don’t have to worry about taxis as pick up is right from your accommodations. Our guide Wilson was very kind. I think there could have been more times we were allowed to adventure on our own instead of guides joining you on every step. I’m guessing that’s to prevent getting taken advantage of though. I would have paid the same if not more money to our guide for us to be able to pick where and how long we stayed in places, but all around very cool trip around Cape Town and Table Mountain with the mountain definitely being the highlight of the day.

Picked up from The Cullinan Hotel on time by Kabura Travel in a car as there was only us two doing the tour that morning. This was great because we told our friendly driver Tahte that our main objective was to get up Table Mountain so he re-arranged the tour to suit that. He took us first to Table Mt. but it was closed because of the wind. So he took us on the city tour including Signal Hill, Cape Castle, City Hall and the Diamond Works. We returned to Table Mt. which was now open. Tahte waited about an hour while we queued and used our prepaid tickets to ascend in a cable car to the top where we got fabulous views. After our descent, he took us back to our Hotel. Tahte spoke very good English and was very informative about the sights and his own culture.
