As I was traveling by myself, I wanted to find a guide who could provide a personalized, professional, and friendly tour of the Cape Town area. After doing some research online, I came across Jacqui Braunlich's website and "Cape by Design Tours". What struck... More

We had the pleasure of connecting with Jacqui recently for a tour of the Cape Winelands. It is such beautiful scenery and has a rich tradition for winemaking. Jacqui’s extraordinary knowledge of how it all evolved in and around Cape Town gave us a fascinating. Today the area is packed with great places to visit and sample. Bringing into the... More

I highly recommend Jacqui as a guide for this part of the world. She is passionate about showing visitors around Cape Town and the surrounding areas. She is multi-lingual (English, Dutch, German and some Xhosa) and she has a great sense of humor. I was especially impressed by her knowledge the botany of the Cape region. She is a brilliant... More

Dear MetalsMan. Thank you so much for your positive review. It was a great pleasure to take you and your partner around Cape Town. The Cape of Storms lived up to its name but despite this, we managed to see a lot and to have fun. I hope you return to Cape Town again in the not too distant future... More

Background: I recently visited South Africa in July 2014. I had scheduled to visit Cape Town for 5 days on the front-end of a safari experience. In researching 'things to do' I came across Cape by Design Tours and Jacqui. Compared to the other quotes and details I was given, my experience with Jacqui pre-trip was fantastic. Fast, clear, specific,... More

I so enjoyed the "millions" of questions as it is a great pleasure for me to share my passion, experience and knowledge of my country with visitors. I... More

Cape by design does exactly what is says on the tin. Jacqui’s knowledge of the areas with our specific and specialist interests combined well with the flexibility of not having a rigid time schedule.

HI Les. It was great fun taking you and your wife around to some lovely birding spots around the Peninsula. It was wonderful to have clients with so much love and enthusiasm for nature and such passion and patience for getting just the right photographs. I hope to see you again for more nature adventures.

The company that booked our trip & tours left us and another couple with which we were travelling with a free day in South Africa. We wanted to create our own tour of the wine country, and found Jacqui and her 'Cape by Design Tours' via a Google search, and it was a perfect match. Jacqui considered our requests and... More

I visit Cape Town frequently and wanted to discover some of the less well known attractions. Jacqui coordinated a wonderful day that exceeded my expectations. The days activities ranged from a visit to spice market in the Bo Kaap neighborhood, a wine tasting at Signal Hill Winery in town, lunch at The Test Kitchen and finally a tour of The... More

We recently did a wide selection of tours with Jacqui. We travel a lot, yet our trip to Cape Town stood out as the best holiday ever, and this had a great deal to do with Jacqui. She showed us many places and many faces of the Western Cape with impeccable organisation and timing. She was marvelous with our kids,... More

We wanted a wine tour around the wine region in Cape Town and the big "group" tours did not offer us what we wanted, only visiting max 3 wineries which were all the big ones. We found Jacqui and her tour was both more cost effective per person and we got to decide where we wanted to go and how... More

Thanks for your great review Zoe. It was fun to take you, Karl and Graham around the Winelands as you were so focused on visiting as many wineries as possible and tasting as many wines as you could. I'm glad we achieved this and that you enjoyed the day as much as I did! More
