Our first visit to Capetown and what a memorable day we had with Rob. My son and his family had toured with Rob last year and enjoyed it so much that they bought us a tour with him as a Christmas present and it was very special. Rob met us at our hotel and we talked about our interests and discussed what we wanted to get out of the tour. He is truly passionate about his home town and his knowledge of everything from history to botany to wine is amazing. A lovely man, a pleasure to be with and I hope we will do it again.

We (3 adult family members) spent 2 full days this week with Rob on our recent visit to Capetown post safari. We selected Rob on the basis of the glowing Trip Advisor reviews. Rob has truly expert knowledge on so many subjects being a former engineer, pilot, manufacturer, businessman and winemaker.
He met us at Cape Grace hotel with maps of the region to explain the topography of the Cape. Together we reviewed the areas of our interests and began to prioritize what we could accomplish in the 2 days.
Day 1, Rob delved into the history of Capetown with emphasis on the Dutch Colonial architecture.
We then visited a fishing village and sampled the fresh local fish from a cafe on the dock. Then a delicious lunch at a wonderful local spot. A scenic drive of the cape followed. Just gorgeous! The final stop of the day was Table Mountain.
Day 2 we toured the wine country. We stopped at Villieri wine farm where we enjoyed a wine tasting and a lecture on wine pairing. Lunch followed at a farm cafe in Stellenbosch where we had a chance to discuss the historical, political and social issues.
Rob is passionate about Capetown and it is contagious!
We parted with new found knowledge, delightful memories and even local gifts. Our only regrets were that we didn't have one more day to spend with Rob! Many thanks to Rob for his efforts and graciousness!!

Imagine your first visit to Capetown, and being looked after by (1) a native, with years of local knowledge, and (2) a winery owner, with "inside" connections in that industry. Rob of Beautiful Cape Town Tours is both of these! Our group of 6 spent two days with Rob, one going south down to Cape Good Hope (and many other sights along the way), and the second heading north into the famed Stellenbosch wine area. As Rob is part owner of one of the wineries there, we had truly "red carpet" treatment, and were surprised to find how much about viticulture AND oenology Rob knows - he's not just quoting something he read in the "guides' handbook!" We especially enjoyed a very hands-on, practical session of matching different wines with different foods. Rob is now on our list of people to highly recommend to friends who travel!

My husband and I booked a one-day peninsula tour with Rob, and we can't speak highly enough about him and the day we spent with him. As others have noted, Rob is extremely flexible and, at the same time, realistic about what you can see and do in one day. Because the tours are private, you benefit from spending time alone with someone who loves Cape Town and has an impressive body of knowledge about every facet of the area. He's also open, enthusiastic and reliable. We found Rob on Trip Advisor and, after reading all of the glowing testimonials, decided to book the tour. We are extremely glad that we did.

As we were staying in Stellenbosch we booked Rob to take us on a full day wine tour. Rob met us at our hotel and instead of rushing us out to the car he sat with us to discuss what we’d like to do during the day and then came up with suggestions to suit.

Rob is passionate about wine and this was immediately evident when we visited our first wine farm to enjoy some sparkling wine. He has a unique way of introducing the basis of smelling and tasting wine and his knowledge is second to none.

We visited some wine farms, had an excellent lunch and concluded the day with a chocolate tasting which was as exciting as the wine tastings; we will never eat “everyday” chocolate again! The day passed far too quickly, we enjoyed it so much and didn’t want it to end!

As well as his knowledge of wines and their production, Rob is an excellent guide to the history of the areas we visited and of South Africa as a whole. He has a great sense of humour and kept us entertained with his stories. Rob has a great personality and warmth which makes you relax and enjoy the whole experience.

We cannot thank Rob enough for an excellent day out and would highly recommend him.
