Xavier our guide was excellent, arrived at our hotel to collect us right on time, explained about the tides and best way to see the penguins. As a result headed via quickest route to Boulders Beach as tide was in so penguins up on the beach. Helped my wife to climb the boulders so we had real close up views of the penguins which was awesome. He did this to please is despite him getting wet up to his waist due to the tides. He then took us back along the coast road showing us some awe inspiring sights and beaches. He gives a knowledgeable commentary all the way as well as answering all our questions. Would not hesitate to use him again and have recommended him to my brother as a must do trip when he visits later this year

Our guide was simply charming! Took us to exactly where we wanted to go and see. Very knowledgeable about some of the interesting history surrounding Cape Town. Would recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience Mother Nature at her finest.
