In the beginning of March 2020, just before the Coronapandemic toke over the world and South Africa went in to total lockdown, our group of 10 friends went on a week tour with Cape Splendour Tours. Well let me tell you, actually Cape Splendour Tours is just one lady, the lovely Mrs. Julie Clarke. She arranged a week tour including winetasting and a day tour around the Cape Peninsula. For 3 days we went on a winetasting tour in the wine areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek. We already made a list of which wineries we wanted to visit and Julie just filled in the blanks. That’s the good thing about Julie, she doesn’t always do a standard program, but she listens to what her customers want and makes a program according to your wishes. She has lots of contacts and a great knowledge of the area. This knowledge especially came out when we did the tour around the Cape Peninsula, including a visit to Cape of Good Hope and the penguins at Boulder’s Point. A special mention has to go to our driver during this week, Mr. Clarence Prince, the most positive and cheerful man you will ever meet! Always on time, driving carefully and a great sense of humour. Me and him got on like a house on fire. So when all this Corona madness is over and your going to beautiful South Africa, make sure to contact Julie Clarke at Cape Splendour Tours!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I had a great time putting your itinerary together and visiting all the farms you and your travel mates wanted to visit. I am so glad that I managed to arrange it for you to see one of your old favourites that had been closed right up to the day we visited. I had a lot of fun with Clarence too, it was the first time we had worked together. I sincerely hope you and your friends do return and choose Cape Splendour to assist you with your holiday and share the Splendours of the Cape with you again.

Cape Town exceeded my expectations and my many thanks and appreciation to Julie for accommodating and enhancing my travels! From my initial communications, Julie answered my questions on a timely basis and took the initiative to provided suggestions and recommendations based upon my interests. Our tour days were well planned and Julie provided excellent knowledge and tips. I hope that I will sometime have the opportunity to return to Cape Town and would look forward to more "Cape Splendour" tours!

Dear L, Thank you so much for the lovely review! I enjoyed doing the research on your special interest and discovered a few spots, that I had not previously encountered, which made our days together lots of fun. It is always good to learn about things out of one's comfort zone. I am so glad that I could facilitate an action packed few days for you, whether I was with you the whole time or not. Warm Regards Julie

Julie did an EXCELLENT job PLANNING and DELIVERING a GREAT itinerary!! My friends and I had NO worries as Julie greeted us at the airport. With her experienced insight, we were able to maximize the sights to see over the two days we had in the Cape Town area. Julie knows where to go and when.... in order to minimize time in the vehicle! Julie is very organized, knowledgable and personable. I appreciated how she shared a mix of history and current events for the area. I highly recommend Julie and look forward to touring with her again!!

Dear Emily Many thanks for your kind words! I had a great time with you and your ladies! I even discovered a new "off beat' lunch stop. I am so glad I could juggle things around so that you managed to get up Table Mountain, even if it took a bit of prompting from me! I am glad you all managed to get home safe and sound before all the flights were stopped! Hope to see you again one of these days! Warm Regards Julie

We had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing self-drive itinerary put together by Julie. It was our first time in Western Cape so had no idea what to expect. All the accommodation booked for us without fail was exceptional and we could have easily have stayed longer in each (especially beautiful Botlierskop!) We also did a wine tasting day and thoroughly enjoyed Julie's company and extensive knowledge. Thank you!
