Our driver/guide Ashley was on time for our pick up. He was very knowledgable about African social and political history as well as about the botanical gardens. The trip included Cecil Rhodes memorial with it spectacular views and we opted for a very interesting 45minutes in the South African museum next to the Company Gardens. We very much enjoyed the tour and would recommend both the tour and our driver/guide Ashley.

Ashley was an excellent guide & did not rush us and even added a visit to Rhodes monument & an hour in the Cape Town Museum (at our cost.) Our suggestion would be that the 9am Kirstenbosch Park cart option (rather than 10am) could be reserved in advance with us guests notified about accepting additional cost. That way overview of the park could be done first with the free time post to explore on our own rather than the reverse.
