Jacqui was instrumental in making our family vacation with our two boys VERY enjoyable. First, we were all over the map when we first contacted her about possible itineraries, but she patiently answered all our questions, gave us excellent advice, and was VERY flexible in accommodating our desires. We did three tours with her - Winelands, Cape Point, and Tabletop mtn/botanical gardens. Every day was superb. She was very patient in dealing with our kids (ages 9 and 11) and offering options that would appeal to them as needed (like ice cream NOW). This was very much appreciated. She also speaks many languages, is very knowledgeable about Cape Town, and frankly, was pleasant to be with. We can't say enough - she was delightful!

On our first day in Cape Town, Jacqui took us on a marvelous tour to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope!! We were lucky with the weather, but the best was Jacqui s warm and welcoming way of showing us HER country, the culture and all the wonders of nature and wildlife. We had some great wildlife viewings on our first day, which started in Llandudno, went along the coast on Chapman s Peak drive from Hout Bay down to Cape Point. We did see some wild antelopes, baboons, ostrich and turtles. She took us to the most romantic beaches and showed us local plants and pointed to animals we wouldn t have seen without her knowledge.

Our second trip was meant to go on top of table mountain, but bad weather made us change plans and we went to Kirstenbosch Gardens, one of the few Worlds Heritage gardens. Although not in full blossom I was really touched by this huge park area, that shows the most exquisite and rare plants with mountains in the back and some wonderful views onto Cape Town. Jacqui took us to Cape Town and did the most interesting City tour. We saw the Houses of Parliament, the Gardens,and had coffe in Food Lovers Market, which I loved especially.

No problem, that we couldn t enjoy the views on table mountain. We will defenitely come back and are very much looking forward to some more excellent tours with Jacqui and Cape by Design-Tours.

All our best wishes XXX Bettina & Lisa

My wife and I recently did a trip in Cape Town and surrounding areas with Jacqui as our driver and guide.

We found her to be an excellent guide with great in-depth knowledge about her country and the region. She took great care of us and listened to what we wanted during the tour. She took us off the beaten track which meant we got to see things we would not normally have seen.

We really enjoyed the time we spent with Jacqui and would highly recommend her to anyone visiting the Western Cape and South Africa.

My first visit to Cape Town and I must say that the tour was quite comprehensive and in retrospect, a great way to spend the day. I received personalized attention and was shown all of the interesting and scenic places in the area, which allowed me to snap a good number of pics of some of the breathtaking views around the area. Jacqui was extremely knowledgable about all of the locations which provided for some fascinating conversations about the history of Cape Town, as well as other parts of South Africa. Whether you're a family, a couple, or just flying solo like me, I can quite comfortably recommend a tour with Cape by Design.

Can't explain why it's taken me so long to visit Cape Town but now that I have I really would go back especially as Jacqui gave me such a varied & entertaining day. Cape by Design took my ideas & added so much more. Jacqui can accommodate just one person through to a full Coach but my trip with her got me a lot closer to what I wanted to do/see & I was able to spend as much time as I needed as opposed to a large group being given a schedule & at a competitive fee. So thanks for a superb day Jacqui.
