“The Best”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Well, it's all been said in previous reviews. If you really want a great tour experience, this is who you should contact. I had been to Cape Town twice before, but it was the first time for my wife, and we only had two days in the city. I wanted to customize the usual tour by shortening the time at the Cape and instead include a visit to the botanical garden. Yaseen suggested some changes that resulted in a perfect itinerary, including making a lunch reservation at a terrific restaurant (The Food Barn) a quick visit to Constantia Winery, and a visit to Kirstenbosch Gardens. The tour hit all the right buttons for us and, as others have said, it was like touring with a good friend.

“Excellent Tour Guides”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We booked two day-long tours with Tania and Yaseen. On the first day, Tania took us all round the Cape Peninsula and on the second, Yaseen showed us the wine regions around Cape Town.

Both days were really enjoyable. Tania and Yaseen both really know their subject and obviously enjoy sharing their local area with visitors. It's more like being shown round by friends than a tour company.

We'll definitely be trying some more of their tours the next time we make it to Cape Town.

“Really great tour guides”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I want to say how much we enjoyed our tours with Yaseen and Tania whilst in Cape Town. They are both so friendly and knowledgable as well as flexible that the trips are personalised from the word go .Yaseen took us around the Cape with several photo and coffee stops which were well timed.We had a fantastic lunch on an isolated beach with only ostrich and buck for company! He pointed out so much wildlife along the way which was a great bonus.
Tania took us on a full day wine tour with spectacular scenery.
I would highly recommend Discovery Tours and would definitely use them again when next in South Africa

“Thanks TA, you did it again!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We are just back from a fantastic day with Tania. We have seen so much in a single day that would not have been possible any other way or I suspect with any other tour company. Whilst the key places of interest were inevitably busy with tourists and tour groups, Tania was, through her extensive knowledge of the area, able to take is to quiet and spectacular places and views. She was a mine of information about the flora and fauna and eagle eyed in spotting the wildlife. The private tour, the openness and friendly nature of the guiding and a willingness to appreciate quirky British humour ensured a totally relaxed, informative and exceptional day. Can't praise Tania enough!
