Gavin arranged two trips, sand boarding and shark diving, for us. We wanted to do the hiking tour and bungee jumping but unfortunately the weather was not helping for the hike and we couldn't get enough people for the bungee jumping.

He was so helpful and friendly with every single activity. Each day he would send us an email and ask about the activity and remind us what to do and bring for the following activities.

Sand boarding was so awesome. I love to snowboard, so this was definitely a new experience, The sand was so soft and it was beautiful there. One tip, bring lots of sun tan lotion. The sun is strong!

Thanks Gavin! I can't wait to go back to Capetown again.

I used Extreme scene to arrange a shark cage diving trip whilst staying in Cape Town. The date of the trip had to be changed whilst we were staying in Cape Town due to the weather. Gavin and Lauren ensured that we were kept upto date with the changes to make everything run smoothly. The shark cage dive with Diving Unlimited at Klienbai was an amazing experience. We saw six Great white sharks and the staff on the boat were very knowledgeable and professional. Breakfast before the trip, towels, snacks and drinks were provided on the boat plus food afterwards. Be prepared for a three hour drive from Cape Town to Klienbai.

Hi Mike thanks for the very positive feedback. We are just glad that you had an extra day and the time to reschedule the shark dive. Sometimes the weather can be a problem and it always helps to have clients who are understanding and flexible to make rescheduling possible. The shark cage diving is a fantastic experience and it sounded like you guys had a very good trip. Yes unfortunately there is a bit of a drive to get there and back but hopefully the the shark cage diving and the beautiful scenario along the drive makes that all worthwhile. If you are ever back in Cape Town again please let us know. All the best.

Terrific fun because the staff are superbly trained and highly safety conscious; means you can both admire the view and scream off your head if you so desire. Don't forget to book a video of the experience as It's very difficult to ride and shoot [unless you have a head-cam]. Suitable for 8 - 80; I'm nearer the upper range. MichaelU

I randomly reached out to Extreme Scene (which I found through Trip Advisory) to help us book our safari for our trip to Cape Town. Gavin responded immediately and had several interesting options. After perusing their website a bit more, I realized they had so much more to offer. We ended up booking our 2-night safari in Sanbona, shark cage diving, Table Mountain hike and abseil as well as our first night's stay in Cape Town through Gavin. Gavin is responsive and doesn't leave you hanging at all. He gets back to you the same day or the next day (due to time difference). Extreme Scene saved us tons of time, headaches, and even a bit of money (got us a great deal at Sanbona for our 3-person situation), not to mention gave us memories that will last a lifetime. Every activity we booked through Gavin was flawless...everyone was where he said they would be, on time, waiting and EXPECTING us. Not to mention, all the activities were top-notch. We went out with the top Great White Shark expert and learned so much more than I was expecting to. Gavin personally took us on the hike up Table Mountain and the went with us on the abseil down. He was encouraging and patient and even played the role of photographer so we got some excellent photos. I highly recommend working with them for not just your extreme outdoor activity booking but for your whole trip. Gavin is connected to all types of vendors in Cape Town and will make your experience 10 times better than you doing it on your own!

Thanks for the very positive review and we hope to take care of your travel needs in Cape Town again in the near future. All the best for the festive season and 2013!!

The information by the tourist office was different from the actual trip, the price was correct as in the brochure.
