We had the pleasure of Ian as our guide around Cape Point who was very knowledgeable and personable. As I was keen to see the penguins at Boulder’s Beach, Ian flexibly altered our itinerary so that we could see them first. His vast knowledge covered the array of different wildlife, history, points of interest and of course wine too! This he shared in a really engaging and interesting way. Ian’s passion and enthusiasm was evident with him joining us in taking photos and kindly offering to snap some souvenir shots for us - something we’d forget otherwise. Our African Moon adventure out with Ian exceeded our expectations and we would strongly recommend a trip with him. If we’re fortunate enough to return to South Africa, we would definitely book another trip with him. Thank you Ian for filling our day with incredible memories!

Despite the fact that I was the only participant, the trip was completed. I think that is really nice service. Incidentally, there was nothing to put a finger on. Everything ran smoothly and the guide was sweet to also help take pictures :)

The tour was nice and the tour guid (Barnabas) was extreamly friendly and filled us with LOADS of information

Fun day out! Check out their Local Knowledge Travel App. It's really cool. Best local recommendations
