Super Tour. Jean Luc is fantastic. Knowledgeable and he is very very attentive. He knows the bay as good or even better than whats in his pockets. Would do it again. Anytime. Unfortunately we werent able to do the table mountain due to bad weather but we got the tickets and could do it the next day. I definitely recommend the tour and support it. Covid times are tough on everyone but especially on the guides that rely on tourism. Keep going Guides. The wind will change.

We had an amazing day with John Luke! He picked us up at our hotel in a beautiful and comfy vehicle and we set off to explore the Cape. John Luke was such a wonderful guide! He was so friendly and engaging and went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience! We got to see the beautiful Cape and had plenty of time at each stop to take pictures and enjoy! We were thrilled with our tour and so happy we booked it! Thanks John Luke!

The tour was amazing. It was especially thanks to our guide Joseph. He was knowledgeable, fun and did everything to make our day perfect. It is not just sightseeing and driving around with Joseph but a trip into the history and beauty of Cape Town and whole Africa. PS: Constantia wineyards is a place to see.

A fantastic day. Jean Luc our guide was extremely knowledgable and friendly. He was very easy company and left us to take care of ourselves whenever it was practical to do so. The personal touch was such an important part of the day.

Very nice flight. Pilot and escort super nice. Have told a lot. Really a great trip
