Our guide Henk was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable about the local plants and birds. Our 10 year old son loved talking to him and finding his little secret spots with caves etc. We took the Kasteel route to the top which ended up being about 6km with a 1000 meter elevation gain over 5 hours. It was an amazing hike, but you need to be in good shape and ready to climb some rock stairs! Henk was kind enough to take some really great pictures of our family with his camera and forward them on to us. We now have net year's holiday card! We have hiked all over North America and Europe and this hike was one of our all time favorites. We were definitely happy to take the lovely cable car down at the end of the trip for the fantastic views and our tired legs.

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!

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.

Peter is a very friendly and polite guide. It was really a memorable experience. Highly recommended.
