We booked 3 days of well personalized day tours with Discovery several months before our trip to Cape Town in July of 2015. One of the things that impressed us right off the bat was the detail and promptness of their replies to our many emailed questions and requests. Our days with Tania were absolutely fantastic, we really couldn't have... More

Last week i went on a private tour with Yaseen. Since it was my first time in Capetown, i let him lead me all the way. We went to Rhodes memorial, Groot Constantia, Muizenberg, Kalkbaai, Simonstown, Boulders Beach, Cape of good hope, Noordhoek, Chapmans peak, Houtbay and Signal Hill. It was the best day ever! Not only because Capetown is... More

Tania and Yaseen planned a wonderful trip for us of Cape Point and the winelands that we went on over several days. They were incredibly informative and knowledgeable. We spend most of our time with Tania who was good fun, personable and professional. She customized our tour to our tastes as we went along and make our stay in Cape... More

We used Tania and Yaseen services under the recommendation of the hotel we were in and we could not have been more lucky. From the airport pickup ( and drop off) to the daily private tour to Cape of Good Hope we have been treated amazingly. They were always on time, always ready to stop at any spot we were... More

Tanya was an amazing guide. She picked us up from our hotel early and was full of energy and knowledge. Tanya taught us so much about the history and culture of South Africa. We saw some great animals and Tanya looked for animals for us while we ate lunch. Two days later we went on a wine tour with Yaseen.... More

My husband and I visited Cape Town June 29th through July 6th 2015. Yaseen picked us up from the airport, and we immediately felt welcomed and perfectly at ease. We toured the wine lands and Cape Peninsula. Yaseen made sure we saw as much as we could without being rushed. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the history and... More

I’ve take tours of the winelands, Cape Peninsula, Hermanus, and the West Coast with Tania and Yaseen in May 2015 and also in 2014. They are flexible and tailor the tour to any requests or personal interests. They always made sure that we saw as much as we could without being rushed. They are both very friendly and knowledgeable about... More

Picked up by Tania from our hotel and immediately felt welcomed and perfectly at ease. We had specifically asked to see certain things and Tania was more than happy to accommodate our wishes, making an itinerary that would suit us and any unexpected weather conditions. We had such a wonderful day and were over whelmed by the enormity of the... More
