Words do not begin to express the awesomeness known as Craig. Craig curated a personalized tour of the area and his unique connections made our day not only unusual, but also productive. We spent time at several wineries for tastings and visited others for garden and architecture viewing. Craig took us away from the "big box locations" and showed us a more specialized and intimate view of the area that included small family owned vintners as well as over the top premium wineries. IT WAS A MAGICAL DAY!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I loved it too, Zenzi! Thank you so much for booking me, and for the feedback. X

My wife and I and another couple toured with Craig over a 3 days period. Hiring Craig was one of the best decisions of our trip. He was extremely professional and customized our tour to maximize our vacation experience in the Cape Town, Hermanus and Wine Lands areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. We will highly recommend Craig to all of our family and friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback, Jeff! Glad that you all so enjoyed the day in the Winelands and learned not only about South African wines but more generally about the wonderful world of wine!
Craig is an excellent, knowledgeable, helpful friendly guide. He gave us a lovely tour of Stellenbosch, taking us to some great wineries. We really enjoyed his knowledge of the wineries and his other recommendations for our holiday in Cape Town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback, so glad you enjoyed the day, I hope you took many happy memories home with you!

We were a party of four arriving in Cape Town after a safari in Tanzania. We spent two wonderful days with Craig. Day one was a tour of the Winelands primarily Stellenbosch and day two was a tour down the peninsula to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. Craig did an outstanding job on both tours of giving us history, interesting facts and an overview of the entire area. We would highly recommend using Craig as a guide in Cape Town and surrounding area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great feedback, Dean! Delighted that you enjoyed it as much as I did.

We wanted to really relax and enjoy a full wine tasting day in the fabulous Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas. Craig took the wheel for us and planned the tour leaving us to enjoy 4 different estates, Simonsig, Mutarie, Camberley and Marianne, each one a treat with their own wine specialities. We built in a lunch break at the superb Franchhoek Kitchen which I would highly recommend. Craig delivered us safely back to our holiday home at the end of a very memorable and stress-free day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having me show you around the Winelands even though you had your own vehicles and were mostly doing your own explorations independently ... But a perfect solution to drinking without driving!
Craig made time in his jam-packed schedule to take us to the Winelands. We wanted to fit a lot into the day, so he gave us a great balance of Cheetah Outreach, four wineries, commentary on historic buildings, and some time for shopping. He has great energy, and is a wealth of knowledge on seemingly all aspects of his beloved country. No wonder he is so popular! He's busy with his own tour company too, so recommended Iggy as a very experienced guide who is relatively new to Tours by Locals. Thanks, Craig!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking me, and for the feedback, Marianne - so glad I was able to share our beautiful Winelands with you!

Craig was one of the best guides we have ever had...not only did we see everything we were looking forward to seeing, he made sure we saw the extras that were on our way. His knowledge and professional attitude were number one! I would use him again in a minute!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. What a great day out it was - thank you for letting me know your specific interest which helped make it a memorable day of discovery for all of us!
