We booked a full day township, district six & Robben Island tour through trip advisor. Unfortunately we didn't get the Robben Island due to all sailings being cancelled due to bad weather however we were refunded straight away. So this turned out to be a great half day tour, first we went to district six museum our guide was very... More

Very useful half day tomorrow. Saw the sites of Cape Town. Excellent tour guide you should ask for Garçon to be your driver. Very knowledgeable. Very witty.

We booked our trip (our honeymoon) thru Lion World Travel and were informed that our "day" excursions in Cape Town would be handled by their partner, Thompson's. Everything about our experience with Thompson's was great! Our guide, Brian, arrived a few minutes early for our pick up and let us know that the other people on our day wine tasting... More

Our Platinum South Africa trip from Cherly Gould and Lion World travel exceeded any and all expectations! Truly Fabulous! Still not fully recovered from the perfection of it all! Once arriving in Capetown we were in the most wonderful hands of their partner Thompsons! Most pleasant! We will especially forever remember meeting and having Gaston and Faisal as our FAB... More

We just got back from our honeymoon in South Africa & Mozambique and we used Thompson's in a few different capacities. First of all, they were used to pick us up and help guide us through all airports. The staff was always there on time - extremely welcoming - and always willing to lend a hand. We never had a...

We had a tour of the city of Cape Town and Robben Island with an excellent guide from Thompson's - `Ish,' short for Irshall. He is extremely knowledgeable and was happy to answer all our many questions. He took us to Bo-Kaap, the Castle, District Six and its museum, telling us about each and leaving us a little time to...

This is a South African owned tour company with presence in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, etc. The quality varies. Driver and guide services: all good and consistent across countries. The vehicles: excellent in South Africa, but not in Zimbabwe, some vans works but some vans have no air conditioning, which made the scorching heat unbearable. But this... More

During a month-long travel throughout So Africa, I booked two tours with Thompson's of Cape Town. I was extremely happy with the tours and tour guides. The Tour Guides were long time residents of Cape Town and had extensive knowledge of history, geography, wildlife and current events. The price was very reasonable. Guides were on time and vehicles were clean.
