Had a wonderful day with Brenda. Brenda was in communication with us days before our tour and arrived early on the day of our tour. Because we had a group tour planned already, Brenda immediately discussed with us what we would do as to not duplicate our visits. Brenda gave us an experience to make us feel like a local. We had lunch at a restaurant of our choice and visited a unique coffee shop as well as historical sights. She is very knowledgeable and makes sure the tour is what you want it to be.

Brenda was awesome. She guided my family of 10 and fit in like a family member. She was very knowledgeable, flexible, patient and friendly. She made sure we got to see all of the most important landmarks and experience the diversity of Capetown. She set up our hikes and bike rides that were flawless. In setting up our activities she was very responsive over quite a number of months as she and my wife planned the details of our adventures by email and some phone. Highly recommend! Nice person!

Brenda was as a very good driver. She transported us around Cape Town andGarden Route safely, choice of boat for the Whales trip was excellent. Accommodation was great -albeit our late arrival limited our opportunity to make the most of it. More detail about where we were going, what we might see en route, opportunities to stop would have been helpful. We had fantastic family holiday great memories, amazing scenery and saw all the wildlife we hoped to see

We had nasty weather in the morning and so we weren't able to get up the mountain, but Brenda had other ideas and after a very interesting drive we ended up in a fantastic coffee house down town.

Brenda toured us in a Tip Top manner and took in all of the key sights, & then some. We visited the Botannical Garden. She took us to the wharf area to enjoy drinks and dinner at the Silo - nice vantage point. Our long day driving the Cape peninsula was splendid with plenty of time to view the scenic vistas, visit the point / lighthouse, visit the Penguins, see Zebras & Elands in the nature park, have lunch at a seaside village & enjoy it all. Great communicator, comfortable transportation & Top guide !!!

Brenda arrived to pick us up from the hotel at 8:00 on the dot. We had originally booked this tour to include table mountain but we had been fortunate to do this the day before, this meant we had more time for the drive along the coast.
