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

Hi all! We enjoyed the Cape Town trip with Discovery tours. Yasin took us around on a full day tour. We went to sea face market and then to Penguin colony. Then to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. We had a lot of time to move around and then to Chapman's Peak. Last was the Camp bay with... 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...

My wife and I had a private day tour with Yaseen in November. From first contact we received a very professional, personalised and friendly experience. It was obvious from our correspondence prior to the tour that Tania & Yaseen fully understood exactly what we were looking for. Our first impressions couldn't have been better. Yaseen arrived on time, was very... More

We spent a fantastic day we Tania showing us around the beautiful Cape Peninsula. This was not a rigid tour but was extremely flexible allowing us to spend as much time doing what interested us the most. Tania is genuinely friendly and got the right balance of feeding us information and leaving us to our own devices to soak in... More

We were on the HAL Rotterdam in November 2014 and had the pleasure of Tania as our guide for the Cape Point Tour on day 1 of our stay in Cape Town. I can certainly echo the positive reviews by previous TA reviewers. I think Tania has a gift to make you feel welcome as part of her circle of... More
