I had a great tour around Cape Town, with a knowledgeable and affable guide. My favourite part was the museum and the walk through the Company Gardens; the historical areas such as Bo-Kaap and the town center were interesting. The scenery is stunning at every turn.

Good introduction to Cape Town. The guide was very good and knowledgeable and was particularly helpful as one of our party was wheelchair bound. My only criticism is of the admin leading up to it. Told 0800 pick up. When I confirmed was told 0845 and driver turned up at 0910. This shortened our trip as I had booked a.m tickets on the cable car following initial booking.
