“Enjoy...”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We booked Jacqui for a half day tour. It was out last day on holiday in South Africa and it turned in to one of the highlights. She was v personable, down to earth, knowledgeable and happy to address all our questions. I would thoroughly recommend her. Enjoy...

Dear Rob and John
It was such a pleasure to take you on a tour, it was short but very memorable. It was wonderful to be able to take you to visit the Hout Bay Music Project and special that Rob got involved and did some improvisation with the children, they really loved it.
Thank YOU for coming along.
Hope we see you soon again!

“Much more than a guide”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The best way to find your way around the Cape Town area. Jacqai was much more than a guide - she always knew great places to eat, far more information than you could ever find in any guide book, never rushed and nothing was too much trouble as she introduced us to amazing Cape Town and winelands. Our visit to Stellenbosch will always be a highlight and we now have new favorite wines to remember our time in South Africa.

“An Unforgettable Day Trip to Cape Point”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

As a young woman and solo traveler, I felt fortunate to spend one of my days in Cape Town with Jacqui from Cape by Design Tours. She made my experience personal, educational, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Visiting Cape Point has always been on my Bucket List, but it wasn’t an excursion I wanted to do on my own—or with a big tour bus! Organizing a trip to the point with Jacqui turned out to be the perfect solution, and so much more. Our drive out to Cape Point—down the coast, past historic townships, through Table Mountain National Park—was a trip on its own. Jacqui was incredibly knowledgeable, and she presented her knowledge in a friendly and conversational manner that kept me interested and engaged. Reaching Cape Point was a dream, and Jacqui was happy to spend time taking photos and exploring. On our way home—after lunching on classic fish and chips and a sparkling Appletiser—we drove along the eastern side and stopped in Simons Town to see the penguins at Boulders Beach.

Missing Cape Town already, but happy to have checked Cape Point off my Bucket List. Thanks, Jacqui and Cape by Design Tours! Next time, I’m coming back for a township tour :)

“Best Way to Know Cape Town Area”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We visited Cape Town in the end of August.Our tours were all planned by Cape by Design Tours.Jacqui planned for us a perfect day where we could visit all places with someone who really knows the local history and can fit the tours for your needs.It would be impossible to visit all the sights we went if we didn't had Cape by to plan for us.
Cape by also arranged for us tours in Johannesburg and advised us about the best to be visited there.It was also perfect.
We really reccomend cape by Design Tours,the best way to visit Cape Town area.
