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...

Cape Town-Discovery Tour Review of The Peninsula Tour. I had made arrangements with Discovery tours back in April, 2014 for our visit in November, 2014. Our group was visiting Cape Town on November 14, 15, and 16, 2014. We would all be arriving on the Holland America Ship Rotterdam. November 14, 2014, we were a group of 12 with 6... More

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

Based on a friend's rave review, we booked three days with Yaseen and the Discovery Tours. Our experience paralleled that of others: special, memorable and exceeding expectations. We toured the Cape peninsula, wine country and Cape Town itself. Yaseen proved to be a quick and good read of his audience. Thus, for instance, our wine country tour highlight was the... More

Yaseen picked us up in from our hotel, An African Villa (also highly recommended) for our private Cape Peninsula tour and was immediately full of stories ! We started off at the Cecil Rhodes statue to get the view and our bearings. He then took us around False Bay through pretty Kalk Bay and onto Simonstown. He told us not... More

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...
