“Baboon, Ostrich and Wine in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Luhambo Tours provides an amazing day touring Cape Town. Our guide for the day was Marlene who was outstanding! She was extremely knowledgeable, witty and a safe driver! We had a full day with Marlene who picked us up from our hotel at 8:30am for a wonderful day at Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope and 2 fabulous wineries. The food was delicious and the chef at the restaurant was very accommodating of my severe shellfish allergy. The views were breathtaking! Marlene provided top notch service that made our day so much more enjoyable than with being with a large tour group. I highly recommend Luhambo Tours! Thanks Marlene!

“Definitely do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We decided to do the one day Cape Peninsula and Constantia Winelands Tour which I would highly recommend as it covers so many of the 'must-see' sights: Cape of Good Hope, Chapman's Peak Drive, Boulders Beach. We also went to two wine estates Steenberg and Buitenverwachting in Constantia and ended up buying a lot of wine (word to the wise check your alcohol allowance before flying out of the country.)

We only booked to do this only one day in advance and the Luhambo Tour company were so accommodating. We had the (apparently) infamous Marlene as our tour guide who was brilliant. She was knowledgable, friendly and so much fun to have as a guide. My family went on the tour with another couple and Marlene was great at breaking the ice and making sure everyone was having a good time. If you only have a short time in Cape Town DEFINITELY DO THIS TOUR.

“Knowledgeable and thoughtful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Our fantastic one day wine tour was filled with just the right amount of facts. We were spoilt with delicious wines and a historical overview that really added to the experience.

Despite booking a day before, the administrative side of the tour was smooth as silk and they were more than happy to cater to our group of four's needs.

I would recommend considering what you would like out of your wine tour beforehand so they can tailor the destinations to your needs - e.g. a beginner's intro, good food pairings, red or white, landscape, etc.

“Best tour ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

I took a 1 Day Cape of Good Hope, Constantia Wine Tour with Luhambo under Marlene Bell yesterday and wow did I have the most memorable experience ever. This company takes good care of you and the tour guide was off the charts fantastic who really knows her stuff. It was a smooth ride all the way to the world's most breathtaking places.

In all my travels around the world, Luhambo's Marlene Bell by far is the best tour guide Ive been with. She definitely knows what she's talking about and really takes care of her group - with a sense of humor to match that makes the tour not only interesting but rather fun as well

“One Day wine and Penquin Tour with LUHAMBO TOURS, Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

On Monday the 4th of November, 2013 we took the one day tour with Luhambo Tours and MARLENE was our guide. If ever you book with Luhambo make sure to ask for Marlene, One of the most charming, knowledgeable, caring, and enthusiastic guides you will ever meet. We visited and saw the Boulders Beach Penguins, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point lighthouse, lunch at the Two Oceans restaurant, then two wineries in the Constantia region. Marlene is Very knowledgeable of the area and South Africa in general, and has a lot to say about the country's history, politics and social economics. It was truly a very enjoyable day. Myself (Bob) my wife Claudia and my in-laws Don & Kathy were really enchanted and awed by the beauty and ruggedness of the South African Coast.
