What people are saying about Cape Town

My daughter was temporarily in a wheelchair. They carried her down the gangway and onto the catamaran and stored the wheelchair. And same getting off. Really helpful. They let my eldest daughter drive the boat and it was the best thing she did the whole holiday. It was a lovely day - warm weather and calm seas which helps. We saw seals dolphins and penguins but if you want to see more fish they recommend first or last thing. we took a 1.30 cruise. On board the vibe was awesome. Beer and champers (ZAR extra) free flowing, good tunes, and energy. Recommend getting there 25mins early and starting a line so that you get pick of your seats. Sushi was delicious too!

It was an amazing day tour! We've been to 4 sites and tasted around 4 wines in each place. I loved learning more about how they started producing wine in South Africa and hearing more about the types of wine. They had vegetarian options on the lunch menu. I recommend you have breakfast before the tour since you will start drinking around 10 am.

The vibe on the cruise was on a 100, the champagne guys were very friendly and brought nice vibes. The food at the restaurant was also very nice

The experience is as described and more, it is one of a kind. Loved the fact that different pairing experiences were part of the package

Faldela was both a great tour guide and a great teacher!
