“Guided tours”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The company delivered everything they promised and more.
Super service when booking the tours, fast reply and very good guidens in what to do and what to see.
We had 2 days guiding with Tony, Cape of Good Hope and winetasting in Stellenboch. A great experience, Tony is an excelent guide, very knowledgable, very easy going and great fun to be around.
Godfrey took us for half a day to his township. An experience we are glad we found time for. We visited different projects, and got a good understanding how these villages works.
We will definitely recommend this company and there guides.

“Above and Beyond”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our two days spent with Clive ended with a display of personal care above and beyond any contracted obligations on his behalf. We modified the City and Hermanus tours to suit our interests and had wonderful input from Clive.
We were in Cape Town to attend a surprise birthday party and added an Italian couple, friends of friends, at a late date without issue from Clive. The language barrier was overcome via blackberry, limited second languages and hand guestures.
At the end of our tour, on a windy and rainy Friday evening, Clive insisted on waiting while we got ready for the party, returned us to the other couple and ensured we were all dispatched to the correct address and on time.
We all choose private tour guides for similar reasons when travelling the world over and Clive does his profession proud.

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

My boyfriend and I chose a more personal tour instead of a crowded bus with many strangers. Clive gave us a fantastic experience touring Cape Point and the Peninsula. He was very knowledgeable and very easy to get along with. He had a great way of pointing out interesting facts that we would appreciate. We also stopped at a restaurant for lunch at his recommendation & it was one of the best meals of our entire trip. It was VERY windy and cool the day we were out, so we were faster than normal at the various stops, but instead of taking us back early, Clive took us to a wine tasting as well. I would highly recommend The Cape Town Tour Guide Company for anyone looking for a private tour. It was a like a friend of yours was taking you out for the day. Great trip!

“"Sensational Tour Guides"”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My friend and I only had three days in Cape Town and two of those for sightseeing so we wanted to make the most of our time there. I Googled for a guide and selected three, sending off emails with our requirements - Clive from The Cape Town Tour Guide Co replied first and right from the start he stood out from the others and got our booking. From the moment we met Clive we felt at ease with his relaxed but professional manner. He was flexible in fitting in all the little extras we wanted - even sitting on the beach for over 2 hours waiting for the sunset so I could get a special photo and the next day taking us to a jeweller so I could buy a bracelet - both of these were outside the tour itineraries. I was more than a "bit lame" after my climb of Mt Kilimanjaro and Clive always took this into consideration making sure he dropped us off at entrance gates and then going off to park the car. He also carried my heavy camera backpack without being asked and often took photos of us. Clive's knowledge is extensive and he provides a really interesting commentary - laced with bits of humour. His offsider Godfrey gave us a very realistic tour of the Township and, as we were with a "local", we felt very welcome in this community. We have already spread the word by recommending Clive to travellers we met after leaving Cape Town and when we go back there, we will use him again.

“It does not get any better than this!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My husband and I recently travelled to Cape Town for our honeymoon, and our experience was made by Clive and the Cape Town Tour Guide Co.!!! We have been all over the world and were impressed by Clive's, our tour guide, deep knowledge of the area and history of the country. Clive was accomodating, fun, engaging, and informative. We did a Winelands tour and Table Mountain tour with the company. Both days far exceeded our expectations. We were sad to leave Clive and head to our safari. He catered both tours to our unique tastes and was flexible in selecting which vineyards to try. Additionally, the company is well connected in Cape Town so everyone was familiar with Clive at the tastings. Moreover, we were very pleased with Clive's restaurant recommendations during our stay in Cape Town. Without the Cape Town Tour Guide Co., our visit to Cape Town would have been half the fun! We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful company and tour guide. BOOK NOW!!!!!
