My partner and I spent 6 days in May 2022, with Greg Hillyard as our guide and driver. Greg definitely helped us make the most of our time in the Cape Town area. We found Greg to be very professional, highly personable and a good communicator before and during our trip. He worked with us to create an itinerary to suit our needs.
Greg is a very intelligent and knowledgeable guide who took us to a wide variety of locations at the best time of day to avoid crowds and capture photos in optimum light. His local knowledge and insight led us to interesting places to eat, shop and explore which were off the beaten path. With an eye on the weather, Greg adjusted our itinerary as needed in order to maximize our sightseeing. Whether it was intimate wineries, hidden beaches, scenic viewpoints, cool cafes, obscure history, unusual parks, street art or colorful neighborhoods, Greg presented us with much to learn, enjoy and think about all the while honing our photographic skills.
We are confident that we saw and learned so much more with Greg as our guide than we could have ever possibly done on our own. We would highly recommend Greg who we found to be the utmost professional.

My wife and I just spent 5 wonderful days photographing greater Cape Town with Greg. We had originally considered renting a car and driving ourselves, but we are so glad we turned our trip over to Greg.

We are not professional photographers by any stretch, but we enjoy photographing our travels and Greg was the perfect guide. He knows where to go, what to shoot, how to shoot it and how to provide his guests the best opportunities to make the most of every location. Shooting vertically through an arch to bring the background in, finding reflections off otherwise inconsequential objects, focusing in on details that are otherwise overlooked, and waiting for a subject to do something interesting before taking a street scene are just a few of the off-hand suggestions Greg provided that turned otherwise average photos into something memorable. He also transformed my wife’s photo capabilities by helping her discover hidden capabilities of her iPhone

From the V&A Wharf to Kirstenbosch Gardens, the wine country, penguins, the Cape of Good Hope, the Hermanus coastline, a Signal Hill sunrise and all points in between, Greg knows where to be when for the best photos. And from wine to gelato, he also knows all of the best and most affordable Cape Town-area eateries for snacks, lunch and dinner.

Finally, in addition to all of the above, Greg is a genuinely nice and thoughtful person who is very responsive to all inquiries and emails, willing to customize your time to your needs. A nice and enjoyable professional to spend time with, be it a few hours or a few days.

Amazing weekend away exploring the remote Cederberg area. Well organized photographic tour by our guide Greg, Greg is always ready to give photographic advice on all levels and with a good sense of humor. Have done many tours with Greg over the years, all affordable trips with great groups of people, all ages, different backgrounds, and nationalities, but all with the same photographic interest that it should all be fun and having a great time together

The recent Cederberg weekend with Greg was yet another of the wonderful photographic tours organised by Greg. His careful planning and choice of locations is always very interesting and challenging. These tours have been great fun and are very informative as he generously shares his knowledge of photography, flora and fauna and the historical and geographical features of the area. Greg has a very relaxed style and a good sense of humour. He is observant and helpful and sensitive to the needs of each member of the group at the same time as keeping the group’s needs in mind. His enthusiasm is always so contagious and encouraging.

I had Greg for a bit of sightseeing tour in cape town as well as around cape town over 1.5 days. His knowledge of the area is excellent - knows all the good spots for photography. In addition, he made great recommendations for lunch and dinner options - as well as the perfect coffee shop in Cape Town.

If you are in the area and looking for a guide for sightseeing, I highly recommend Greg.

I have been on two tours in the Cape Town area on consecutive years, both Sept 2018 and 2019 - Greg's tour is the perfect mix of visually intriguing and factually inspiring experiences, designed at the tourist or like me, the photo tourist.

He is professional, punctual and above all a safe and conscientious guide who tunes in and delivers a dynamic tour, the exact result I needed for my photography.

I took a tour with Greg back in September in Cape Town. I would recommend him highly.
He is a really top guy and photographer. Really easy to get on with and made the tour a lot of fun whilst travelling around the Cape Town area. The locations we went to were excellent and I learned some great tips and really appreciate his help - thanks Greg!!
