Jean Luc was a fabulous guide. As a family of four we had a minivan to ourselves for the trip, which gave us a lot of flexibility over the route and stopping places. The penguins themselves (there is a small extra fee) were everywhere on the beach. You can get really close to them and take some great natural photos. The same ticket allows you to swim further down the beach and you will probably find some penguins swimming there too. Jean Luc explained all of this to us. He also pointed out the best places to get coffee and in Simonstown to have a delicious and good value fresh fish lunch. He was brilliant when our son was taken unwell in the minivan, it didn’t fuss him at all. We must have overstayed the budgeted time on the tour by a couple of hours but this was also no trouble. If you are looking for a tour with a knowledgeable friendly guide and lots of flexibility to do what you want, then look no further!

Jean Luc was an amazing tour guide and could’ve have asked for a more informative and professional tour guide. I would highly recommend Jean Luc for anything Cape Town related! He took a group of us (12-15) around several different hot spots , including penguin beach. It was a 10/10 experience thanks to Jean Luc.

Our trip was amazing! Jean luc our tour guide was brilliant. We stopped at so many different view points along the way and he told us so much history about South Africa that we didn’t know which was an added bonus. The penguins did not disappoint highly recommend.

Our guide Felix, was a pleasure to ride with. He was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. Pointed out lots of areas of interest en route. He was polite and courteous, opened the car door for me every time, chivalry isn’t dead!
When we got to Boulder beach he took us off track and we were able to get up close … in such a beautiful setting it was an amazing experience. Felix also knew when to be with you and when to give you some space.
I would highly recommend this trip

The Penguin experience was one of the highlights of our holiday. Not only was it awesome to get so close to the little fellas in their natural environment, but the tour that Jean Luc gave us en route to and from the beach and all the hints and tips that he shared made the experience even more unforgettable . 5 star service for a 5 star memory thank you.

Honestly, this a car ride to a great park. Tour guide was fine; car squishy for four of us and no bottled water (though thankfully A/C - and our guide was very accommodating and attentive). In hindsight we should have just arranged for an Uber!

We thoroughly enjoyed Boulder Beach and the penguin sanctuary. An educational and fun experience! We learned about the variety of beaches, the marine life, the ocean and the history of the various points and towns along the way. And, the baboons were fun to observe avoiding the ranger! Our guide Gean Luc is a wealth of information and goes above and beyond to provide clients with a most memorable experience! Exceeds Expectations!
I forgot my lens cap in his car and he left it for me at the hotel reception. He couldn’t be any kinder.

We did the Penguin Encounter Tour, and it was the highlight of my stay in South Africa! We had originally booked for the morning of March 8th. Little did we know, a large bike race was happening, causing road closures all throughout Cape Town and the Western Cape that day. They messaged us to see if we would be willing to go for an afternoon tour instead. My husband and I didn’t have anything else planned, so we were all for it! I’m sure glad we agreed, because we ended up being the only ones on the tour!

We were picked up from our hotel, and our tour guide was amazing (I’m feeling awful, because I don’t remember his name...but he had glasses!) On our drive down to the Penguin Preserve, we made a few stops for photo ops, and the whole way there, he was educating us with South African history (which was so interesting and eye opening!)

Once we got to the preserve, our guide explained to us the different routes and bridges we could take to see the penguins, and let us know he would meet us back in the parking lot in about 2.5 hours. So. Many. Penguins! The preserve did not disappoint!

From there, we took the scenic route back, and drove along the coast of the Western Cape. The drive was absolutely amazing! I am so glad that he took us that way! Just like the way out, on the way in, we made a few stops to take in the view and take some photos.

This was one of the best tours and most knowledgeable guides I have EVER had!

I would HIGHLY recommend!

Our guide Jean Luc did a fantastic job taking us around and providing many details and comments to the various sights. My girlfriend and I had a private tour in car, which allowed us to ask tons of questions and Jean Luc always came up with interesting comments. We had a great time!

When we got in the car alain offered straight out to do the whole day private tour (at a cost) and we were glad he did as it was a fantastic day. Saw lots of wildlife including baboons, zebra, ostrich penguins of course, antilope and seals. Alain was very helpful, informative and just a nice guy. Definitely worth using this company
