This tour was great as an overview of the City of Cape Town, Robben Island and the Twelve Apostles. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, passionate and funny with his delivery! You could spend days looking at everything but he kept it to the highlights, concise and engaging. Can’t recommend this enough! Perfect way to take it all in… Fantastico!!! 🙂

It was amazing trip. Very easy to find the meeting point, we skipped all the lines. Our guide Nathan was incredible. He told us so many details from the history. All the time he was waiting all the members of the group, because you can get lost. There are so many people outside. Our guide was so passionate, knowledgeable and answering all you questions. Highly recommend this tour company. You will in a small group of max 6-8 people not like others from 20.

I would highly recommend this tour for many reasons (skip the long line, great information provided by tour guide, easy access to mountain, to summit, to back down transport). However, what made our tour even more special, was our tour guide, Nathan. His passion and knowledge far exceeded our expectations. He made the tour more of an experience and not just a tour. Thank you Nathan for a wonderful tour and for sharing your heart and knowledge with our group. Many blessings to you and your family. If you are visiting Cape Town, you really need to do a tour. I know for my family, we would not have had the same experience without the tour.

We feel so fortunate to have had Nathan as our guide. Not only because of his in depth mountain guiding knowledge but also he was such a delightful person. She did a fantastic job of getting our group thru the crowds which was not very easy and ensuring that we all stayed together. I am still trying to recall all the “secrets” and personal information about the mountains, places and the outdoors of Cape Town that he shared with us. This tour is well worth the money and I highly recommend it.

The only way to really understand the whole history behind this spectacular sites to have a guide! Nathan (I hope I’ve spelt your name correctly!) was a passionate guide who explained so much to us!! I wish I had read more about it all before we went because I would have understood more of it! He was very friendly and professional, speaking to the staff when she saw them. We were a family of 4, our 13 & 9 year old daughters were with us and she involved them in the tour which was so good of him! His knowledge was out of this world! It definitely went further than an guided hike. It was a shame we didn’t have him for longer!! It was a very well organised tour from start to finish! Thank you!

This tour provide quick access to see all the major Table Mountain. Not all areas of the Table Mountain were covered because its too big but I understand a return Cableway was available on the same ticket.

Our guide Nathan was very good. She really made the history of the mountains come alive and the tour gave us relevant information in a way that was most entertaining. Even our teenagers were impressed. We recommend the tour to others and if you get Nathan as your guide – lucky you.
