The guide is full of energy and good humor, he organizes and improvises as best as possible according to the vagaries of the visit; this one is rich and interesting with regard to the town center even if it is very fast, this however leaves the opportunity to return by peaceful pedestrian. After Table mountain we drop you off where you want ... practical

Good overview of the city

Good introduction to Cape Town. The guide was very good and knowledgeable and was particularly helpful as one of our party was wheelchair bound. My only criticism is of the admin leading up to it. Told 0800 pick up. When I confirmed was told 0845 and driver turned up at 0910. This shortened our trip as I had booked a.m tickets on the cable car following initial booking.
