Tour: #28412, Cape Peninsula and Cape of Good Hope private tour., Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa    view tour
Date: Feb 11/20

Daniel provided precisely what we requested and so much more during our tour of the Cape Peninsula. He was punctual, well organized, enjoyable and expressed his knowledge in an interesting and clear manner. His knowledge and presentation were from one who has lived a lifetime in the area so his depth of understanding is second nature. His good natured interaction was a joy and enhanced our visit to the Cape Town Peninsula and South Africa immensely. A five star experience without question.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Arnie. I hope your cruise and flights back home will go smoothly and that the Corona precautions won’t mess it up too much!

Date: Feb 7/20

We booked Daniel for four days, for a "complete" first time visitor set of day tours. We were TOTALLY PLEASED! Note: we are careful not to resort to hyperbole in rating TBL guides, as we have had more than 40 guides and ALL have been excellent! Therefore, we would say, without equivocation, that Daniel is as good as any guide we have ever had and we recommend him to others WITHOUT HESITATION! We are pleased that TBL has him as one of their CapeTown guides. We will hire him again if we ever return.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words George. It was just a pleasure to show Carol and you around.

Daniel was just great. He made sure we saw everything we wanted to see, plus things we never would have thought of. He is personable, always on time, has a clean modern vehicle, and is so proud to show off his country. His tour included all our entry fees, wine-tasting fees, boat rides, etc. We could not have been more satisfied. Bill and Judy Massengill

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill. I appreciate it. I really enjoyed showing Judy and you around!

Exceptional day with Daniel making every effort to adapt the tour reflecting how busy Cape Town has been over the holiday period. Very knowledgable & comprehensive trip throughout and would absolutely recommend Daniel to any guests visiting Cape Town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Adam! I really appreciate the kind review. I hope you and Luke will really enjoy your time in Cape Town. Or maybe not too much, as that would mean that England would have beaten South Africa in the second test!!

Daniel was a great guide! He was personable and informative, and we felt very relaxed with him. As it was a Sunday, he suggested a slight change in the route which was super as we arrived ahead of the crowds at Cape Point. He mentioned other tourists walked the trail between Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope so we did that and met him on the other side, the views were wonderful! We had lots of time to admire the penguins and enjoyed other stops along the way. It was an incredible day! Thank you Daniel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the very kind words Teresa. I really appreciate it.

Daniel is a great driver - and that is important for this tour. It is a bit of a haul to get there - but the view is amazing, and we were glad we made the effort. Daniel picked a lovely route and we saw a ton of beautiful countryside. We did miss the penguins because we dawdled a bit along the way.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review Jen. I appreciate it.

Although my wife and I have been to South Africa several times before, this was our first visit to Cape Town. That being the case, our 3-day tour and Tours By Locals guide, Daniel, was the perfect introduction. The tour provided a well-paced, thoroughly enjoyable experience of Cape Town's diverse areas and iconic sites. Daniel was very pleasant and accommodating, as he shared his vast knowledge and experience of the region. A really great tour and guide. We highly recommend both for Cape Town visitors.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jerry and Tori. I appreciate it. It was fun to show you guys around - just a pity our visit to Table Mountain was so cold!!

Daniel lead a wonderful tour of the city, smoothing the way for our limited mobility in visiting Table Mtn, finding a convenient outdoor restaurant in the Company Garden and a coffee stop by the beach at Hout Bay He offered a clear, concise and when questioned, an in depth commentary on a variety of topics. His smile and good cheer offered good energy throughout the tour. He was amenable to impromptu changes in the original plan when our desires or traffic realities occurred. Unforgettable day!!

This is our second day with Daniel and our second 5-star experience. Daniel was prompt, professional, informative, personable, and flexible. He was waiting for us when we came down at the appointed time in the morning; he pointed out landmarks as we were proceeding to the wonderful Aquilla Reserve; he shared some of his pertinent life experiences as we were riding with him; and upon asking him for advise on where we might acquire some chocolate for a friend at home, we went to a choc factory.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tom. I had a great time with you guys. I trust that Jeanne and you will really enjoy Chobe and Vic Falls, and the cruise after that.

Daniel was on time and on point from the start. He was thorough in his knowledge and true to the posted itinerary. He was patient with any disabilities that we had with the venues visited and flexible when necessary. If he was responsible for the weather--it was perfect--I would nominate him for guide-of-the-year.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tom. You might just be exaggerating slightly - except maybe for my part in the weather!!

My husband and I had a delightful 2 day City and Peninsular tour with Daniel during our recent stay in Cape Town, SA. As promised, he was flexible, knowledgable and very punctual. What made the experience outstanding was his willingness to provide his insights and opinions to our barrage of questions regarding not only the details and history of what we were seeing but about life, culture, and opportunities in Cape Town.

We booked a Private Wine Tour with Daniel. We wanted to see the area without the wine tasting, and Daniel was able to customize the tour to suit our needs. Lunch was in Franschhoek at the station which has been turned into a pub and grill. Sitting at a table on the tracks and looking at all the old station memorabilia makes this a very interesting lunch stop. Daniel is very personable and knowledgeable which added to our enjoyment of the beautiful scenery. I highly recommend taking a tour with him.

We cannot say enough about our 3 Day Cape Highlights tour. Daniel personalized our tour to the nth degree for us and our 13-year-old granddaughter. At our request he arranged for visits to a cancer center and a primary school so that we could drop off our donations. He kept apprised of the weather and the crowds in order to optimize our experience. His enthusiasm never wavered. It was like being shown around by your favorite family member who wanted everything to be just perfect. We recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ken. Having you, Kathy and Kalee here was like showing family around! Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and that the Africa bug has bitten you! Once it has bitten, you will be back!!

Our guide was excellent at getting to point Agulhas. We traveled at our own pace and stopped where we wanted. On the way there we took a agriculture and scenic drive that was different from the Cape Town area. We arrived at Point Agulhas and he seemed happy to let us spend a long time viewing where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. We than took a Beautiful drive Hugging the Sea with the mountains on the other side. He truly knows the ways to get there and back. Truly Excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tom and Mary, it was really a pleasure. Enjoyed talking to you which made the way just so much easier. I am glad you enjoyed it and that you took the time to write a review. I hope you enjoy your well deserved retirement!
