“Great Cape Town Tour”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We recently had the pleasure of spending 5 days in Cape Town , South Africa with The Cape Town Tour Guide Co., owned and operated by Clive De Bruyne. Form our first email "interview" with Clive, we were convinced he would be able to satisfy our requests for our time in Cape Town. There were 3 couples traveling together all arriving at different times (and days). All the arrivals were met at the airport and brought to our hotel (Victoria and Albert) in a comfortable Mercedes van by Godfrey, Clive's associate. We had requested several activities including strenuous hikes up Table Mountain and at the Cape, ocean kayaking to visit the penguin colonies, and bicycle touring in Stellenbosch. Clive arranged and participated in all of these. Other highlights of the time here were a trip to Robben Island, impressive wine tasting (that included chocolate pairings!), and a personal tour of Langa Township with Godfrey. My wife's birthday was the 2nd day of our visit, and Clive arranged a surprise birthday party at a beautiful vista precisely at sunset with wine and unbelievable cupcakes.
From beginning to end, pick-up to drop-off, our Cape Town experience was seamless. Thanks to Clive and Godfrey we will have many fond memories of Cape Town.

“Active Cape Town”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Rick F.
Our group of six seniors wanted an active - interactive Cape Town experience. Clive did an outstanding job in arranging this. We hiked Cable Mountain (twice!), biked in wine country, kayaked, toured a township (on foot), visited Robbins Island, hiked the very southern tip of the cape, and toured the city. Clive took care of every detail and was with us every step of the way. All issues were handled with professionalism, understanding, and skill. Clive is highly knowledgable, personable, and fun to be with.We had a fantastic six days and left Cape Town feeling that we had truly experienced the area - all thanks to Clive and his staff.

“Cape Town City Tour and Cape Point Tour”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had 4 days in Cape Town with my husband and parents before we went on safari in Botswana. We contacted Clive to take us on tour for 2 days. The first day Clive took us up to Table Mountain on a gorgeous sunny morning and then drove and walked us through the city. He is a knowledgeable and considerate host who made sure everyone was seeing what they wanted and having a good time. Clive's partner Godfrey took us to a neighbouring Township Langa where he lived where we got to see the other side of South Africa, it was a great experience. Got to meet local South Africans and see how they live outside the city.

The second day we had a lovely scenic drive along the coast of Cape Point and the Peninsula. Stopped at the Cape of Good Hope, Simon's Beach, had a lovely lunch at a seaside restaurant and headed back to the city. On the way back he took us to Kirstenbosch Gardens because he knew my mother had a interest in plants. He gave us a private tour of the gardens and pointed out many of the area's native and more interesting flora.

We have a lovely visit to Cape Town and I would recommend Clive's services. He showed us a lovely time and we got to see all the sights we wanted in the short time we had. I highly recommend a private tour with Clive as he was able to cater to our interests and pace, we never felt rushed and he answered all our questions with great patience. He certainly knows his stuff!
