Thomas CouillardUnited States
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!!
Lawrence HavertyUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pat. I really appreciate the kind review. It was an absolute pleasure to have Larry and you here as guests in my little piece of Paradise!

Lora KightUnited States
Daniel is awesome! We loved our tour--he was very accommodating of our group which included four teenagers! He took us to all the places we wanted to see on the cape peninsula plus two wine tastings in Constantin. We highly recommend him! He was informative, friendly and fun to be around all day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lora. I appreciate that you took the time and for the great review! Just a pity Cape Town's weather would not allow us to do the Table Mountain hike as well, but a least that will give you something to come back for!
Leslie ThompsonUnited States
We had a beautiful day for our long drive around the peninsula. The penguins performed on cue. Another tasty luncheon provided yet more local tastes and smells. Our guide had plenty of information available for us and was very receptive to all our requests and modifications to the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Leslie. I really appreciate that you took the time to submit a rating.
Diane Del Mauro GorinUnited States
My companion and I were with Daniel for two two days of touring. We consideri ourselves so fortunate to have had him as our guide in Cape Town. Daniel was very knowledgeable of the history of his country and all the sights he took us to. His professionalism was only surpassed by his extremely pleasant personality and omnipresent smile. Highly recommend him to anyone visiting Cape Town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Diane. I appreciate the kind words. I really hope that you and Barry have recovered enough to really enjoy your cruise and that you will always have great memories of our little piece of paradise at the bottom of Africa!
Henry C (Cliff) BaggettUnited States
Daniel, without question, is one of the finest tour guides we have ever used and we have traveled extensively and used Tours by Locals and other private guides quite a bit in the last five years. Daniel is extremely knowledgeable about South Africa and the Cape Town area and imparted that knowledge in such an enjoyable and interesting way. He simply made South Africa "come alive" for my husband and me!!! This particular day was spent touring the Cape of Good Hope and the Cape Peninsula!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mary. I appreciate the time you took to submit a review, and for the very kind words!
Sharon A Y.United States
Daniel was so cooperative as we added a special stop that was not part of the original program. He was friendly and so informative and we felt very comfortable with him from the start. Would strongly recommend booking him on a trip to the Cape Town area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sharon. Trust that you and Michael had a safe trip back.
Silvia StaudenmaierUnited Kingdom
We had a wonderful day. Daniel is very knowledgeable, friendly and good fun. Many thanks for a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Silvia, I am glad they enjoyed it. I agree - it was fun!
This was a ten star not a five star trip, Daniel listened to what I wanted to do and really put great thought into what he suggested and as he learnt more about me put in little changes that he thought would make it more memorable. And as opportunities arose, he was able to be flexible around all these things. He knows his stuff, is a great driver - and deadly accurate with starlings!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Neisha, I appreciate the kind words. I doubt if anyone who have not have lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant will understand your starling comment though! Hope you have a safe flight home.
James LeonardUnited States
Excellent tour. Car was clean and nice. Tour started right on time and in the location promised. Daniel is well informed and has excellent communication skills. He planned ahead and made proactive adjustments to the schedule that allowed us to miss some of the huge holiday lines and delays in the public parks. Well done- would use him again without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jim. I really enjoyed showing the three of you around. Hope Zach are coming to grips with his "turtle coloring"!
Kevin BettsUnited States
Daniel is personable, knowledgeable and very willing to accomadate requests. He is a find and if available, book him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kevin. It was a pleasure to take you and Jan around!
Our tour with Daniel was nothing short of outstanding. His knowledge of the history of the Cape region was amazing and he delivered that knowledge in a light, informative and entertaining style. All four of us concluded that we couldn't have had a more competent and accommodating guide. We all highly recommend Daniel as your guide if you visit Cape Town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bob. It was really a great pleasure to have the four of you as my guests.
Kenda ScottUnited States
Daniel was by far and above one of the best tour guides ever. He was prompt, his vehicle was outstanding, he showed us all the things we wanted to see and added some wonderful extras. He was very informative, answered all our questions and was extremely considerate and helpful. We spent a delightful day in Cape Town with a friendly "true gentleman" We thank you all.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kenda, I don't know how I missed your feedback, but only now noticed it! Thank you very much for the kind words. Two and a half years later - it is time for you to come back!!
Andrea LaMarUnited States
Daniel adjusted the tour to match the predicted weather conditions, accommodated a member of our group who had limited mobility, and spent much more time with us than we expected. He also stopped at a take-away place so we could get something for our dinner to take back to our B&B. He took us the way we wanted to go down the Cape on the east and back on the west side and stopped wherever we wanted to stop. We saw a gorgeous sunset on Chapman's Peak!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Andy. I appreciate it.
Randi RutanOld Bridge, NJ, United States
Absolutely wonderful tour. Daniel is extremely knowledgeable about the area, being native born on the Cape. It was a superb day! Daniel tailored the trip in anticipation of any weather changes, exactly as you would expect of a local guide. We circumnavigated the Cape peninsula over the course of the day, taking in the Seal Island off Houk Bay, the penguin colony at Boulders near Fish Hoek as well as the Cape of Good Hope park. The Chapman's Peak road, just reopened, is not to be missed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Randi. I agree, it turned out to be a great day! Hope you slotted back into "winter mode" okay.
Our Cape Penninsula tour was a great experience. Daniel, our guide, arrived promptly as scheduled and spent the day showing us some of the most spectacular scenary we have ever seen. Daniel accompanied us in all the activities and made sure we had the best vantage points. The vehicle was clean and roomy. Daniel is very accommodating with the agenda and goes the extra mile to ensure you have the best experience. Highly recommended...I'm confident you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Stephen. I appreciate your comments. I can assure you I had just as much fun as you guys!
