This was our first full in South Africa and it was a perfect beginning. Kelvin was one of those guides who go the extra mile. We saw and did everything there was to see and do. He rearranged the day so that we could experience Table Mountain at sunset, an amazing experience. This tour, with Kelvin, set the tone for our entire 3 weeks in South Africa; I highly recommend it.

Table Mountain, Boulders Penguin, Cape Point Private Tour was perfect for our first day in Cape Town. Kelvin was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional. The day started out overcast, which would've made the first stop of Table Mountain pointless because we wouldn't be able to see anything, so he changed the order of the itinerary, saying we could come back to it at the end of the day of time allowed. Well, when we came back to the city after taking the optional Seal Island boat tour, hiking around Cape Point, having lunch, and loving every minute of Boulders Penguin Colony, it was almost sunset and officially the end of our tour time. But Kelvin insisted we were taking the cable car up Table Mountain and it was so magical being the only ones on the cable car ride up, walking around the top with view of the city at sunset, and never being rushed because our time was up. He didn't have to spend the extra time with us, but because he did, Kelvin made our introduction to Cape Town very special.

What a fantastic tour! Our guide, Danson, was prompt, professional, friendly, informative, and flexible! Even if you have cloudy or foggy weather, the sights are still beautiful and well worth the trip. Thanks to Danson for making our last day in Cape Town so special!

This was a great way to see these Cape Town highlights in one day, and the drive down the coast was absolutely beautiful! I didn't feel rushed at any point, and we received great insight into the history of the area from our wonderful guide, Leon. I loved each of our stops, but Cape Point was truly special- probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful experience. If you read reviews about Kevin it is all true. Professional, very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to insure a great private tour. We were to go to Tsble mountain in morning but very cloudy. He arreanged to later afternoon so we had sunset and very small crowds. Dan penguins, baboons and ostriches. Cable car to mountain is very cool. Restaurant at national park is great. Largest prawns! Skip the big busses , this is the way to go. I’d check if you could request Kevin as your guide and driver.
