Tanya took us on two trips. The first was a Cape peninsula tour. I doubt anyone else could have provided a better experience than Tanya's description of the regions's history, her humor and the off the beaten track detours where we sighted Zebras, Ostriches, Kudus and other smaller animals. Our second trip was to the wine country. This was again... More

There aren’t enough stars to rate Discovery Tours as highly as it deserves to be rated. Both Tania and Yaseen are incredible at what they do. We booked two day tours with them: one around the Cape of Good Hope and one to wine country. A friend recommended Tania and Yaseen highly, but our expectations were totally exceeded. Tania picked...

It is so difficult to describe how special our time w/ Yaseen (and Tania!) was. We pretty much put our entire experience in their hands, which was a gamble, but it paid off more than we could ever have known. On a hunch (based on warm and responsive emails) I scheduled 3 tours w/ them, along with transfer to and... More

My son and I had 2 days with Yaseen taking us to various attractions - wine areas, Cape of Good Hope, City areas etc. We organised this with his wife Tania. Both were excellent to work with tailoring our requirements to the time we had available, which was quite a stretch. Friendly personal service with a depth of local knowledge... More

We took the Cape Peninsula Tour led by Yaseem on January 30th. It was a comprehensive tour with spectacular scenery, penguins, ostrich, antelope and baboons all in the wild! Yaseen was a wonderful guide - both professional and knowledgeable. The next day we went on a tour of the Cape Winelands, including Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. While the itinerary was...

My husband and I were in Cape Town in September 2014 and Tannia with Discovery Tours gave us a superb tour. We had the best time ever! She took us to Camps Bay, Cape Point, Constantia Winery, Noordhoek, Chapmans Peak Drive, Hout Bay and to see the African Penguins along with a variety of other sightseeing landmarks, places and beautiful...

My husband and I booked with Discovery Tours after other recommended tour guides were booked. We were not disappointed at all, in fact we loved our 2 private tours with Tania to the Cape Point area and the winelands. She is so knowledgable and knows the answer to every question. She went way beyond the call of duty and extended... More

We were recommended this company by a couple we met in South Africa. They had used discovery for a couple of tours and really rated them. We went on a winelands tour with Tania who picked us up bang on time from our hotel. The tours are private so you don't have to share a minibus with others. And you... More

We recently returned from a trip of a lifetime which began with 5 days in Capetown. On the recommendation of friends, we had booked with Discovery Tours. Yaseen and Tania were wonderful! As well as being enthusiastic and knowledgeable, Yaseen kept us laughing as we toured Capetown and environs. Both are excellent guides and I highly recommend them to anyone... More

Tania and Yaseen assisted me with airport transfers. They were perfectly on time for both. Before I arrived in Cape Town Yaseen called to alert me that my incoming plane was delayed and stayed in touch throughout the day until the new schedule was finalised. This offered great peace of mind as the delay meant I arrived in the city... More
