Today, I took my family group of six (3 generations) on a full-day scenic tour of the Cape of Good Hope with Blue Monkey Tours. I've included the itinerary below, for those interested in this tour in particular.

My sister and I had a great day with Allan. We chose the Great White Shark Cage Diving in Gansbaai. The trip was a little bit long, but Allan explained everything for us and made some stops to see the whales. By the way, Allan nickname is "Baas 4 eyes", because he can see all animals miles away!!! Thanks, Allan,... More
