Three of us were very fortunate to be able to visit this beautiful part of Africa. Our visit was enhanced especially by our trip to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek with their wineries. Yaseen was punctual in picking us up and conducted the tour in a very professional and entertaining fashion, knowing when to apply his superb knowledge and giving us our... More

My family has been to Cape Town 3 times and each time has had an amazing time with Tatia & Yaseen. They have remarkable knowledge of the area and know the best places to see and do things that are off the beaten path, if you want to. This time I had the pleasure of taking a tour from Cape... More

We spent three wonderful days touring with Yaseen and Tania. The pace was leisurely, but we always saw more than we expected. We stopped at "local's" spots for morning and afternoon coffee breaks, which were as interesting as the sights we were seeing. Lunches were at specially selected restaurants, which maximized our experiences. Our favorite was dining al fresco at... More

If you do just one thing in Cape Town, spend a day with Tania touring the Cape. As others have said, you immediately feel like you're touring with a friend. Like you're going to Cape Town and your best friend says "you must look up Tania and Yaseen...they'll look after you." And how. We had a private tour for the... More

We took a family trip around the Cape Peninsula with Yaseen. It was really fantastic and one of the highlights of our 4 weeks in South Africa. Loved the history Yaseen gave us of the Afrikaaners and English in South Africa; he was engaging and knowledgeable and loved Capetown, the perfect guide! I highly recommend Discovery Tours and am so... More

We only had 2 days in cape town and i'd contacted Yaseen months ahead - for the cape peninsula tour (day 1) and the wine tour (day 2), it was more than worth it. Yaseen turned up right on time at our hotel and kept us engaged with his information on each of the places we visited as well as... More

I have arranged and gone on many tours during our various trips and most have been very good. But the truly excellent ones are the ones where not only did our guide know the area well and was proud of the area but made you feel like that you weren't with a hired guide at all but rather with a...
