Allie was flexible and listened to our interests and planned our tour accordingly! We were delighted with our private tour of the Cape Point! We had 2 days to spend in Csoe town and we spent both days with Allie! This is the best value to see the sights groomed for your specific interests! Once you have spent the money to see this area make the mist of your valuable time to see as much as you can see privately! Thanks Allie! Marilynn & Tom. Bremerton Washington USA

Allie is the greatest! When our flight was delayed he was both caring and flexible. He made sure that we saw what we wanted to see on a schedule that worked for us. Very personable and knowledgeable. He seems to know everyone in Cape Town . Highly recommend him for anyone visiting Cape Town. You couldn't make a better choice.

What a wonderful day. Allie is very experienced, friendly, and relaxed, and we all felt as though we truly got our money's worth. He never rushed us or seemed impatient, and did not torture us with endless narrative. He did the extensive driving that the Cape Peninsula tour involved with the best use of side roads and shortcuts to minimize traffic wait time. And at the end, since the weather was good. He did Table Mountain with us on the cable car. The Rolls-Royce of Guides!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Allie on the beautiful Cape Peninsula tour in Africa. He made certain to show us the "must see" sights and filled in the rest with delightful details we thoroughly enjoyed such as a lovely walk along the coast. We shared a wonderful day along with lots of laughter.

Allie-ultimate guide for anyone's stay in Cape Town. He is ALL YOU NEED! He is knowledgeable as he is from Cape Town, he knows historical facts & wildlife facts. If he sees something off the beaten path, he will spontaneously go with his gut feeling and turn off the road and take you on an experience that you never would have expected (a township & saw way of life) ! He is observant that he is able to see something ( in our case a fresh fish market) and took us to talk to the fishermen.

Beyond our expectations! If you are looking to explore Cape Town, winelands, and/or the Cape Peninsula, Allie is the absolute best! You will not be disappointed. Allie made sure we saw what we wanted to see and that level of flexibility was above and beyond. We saw everything we wanted to - seals, penguins, False Bay, Cape Point with an awesome lunch, Cape of Good Hope. Amazing! Allie then checked in with us the next two days we were in Cape Town to make sure we had everything we needed.

Allie is amazing! His mission is to make sure his clients have the best time and he is flexible, conscientious and very knowledgeable about the cape. We were impressed with the relationships that he's made over the years with the staff where we stopped: a winery, a restaurant, even at the tollbooth. He is well loved and respected by the friends that he's made around the cape. In our opinion that is a very special trait.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you... Thank you!!!! It was an absolute pleasure to have been with you guys... All is well on my side... Always good .. Always Allie

We had a great day with our top guide Allie. Our daughter was constantly talking about being sooo exited to see the penguines, so Allie suggest that we change the tour to had to Boulders Beach first. We were lucky enough to have great weather, have an excellent driver and guide and saw all the sights we had planned to see. I can highly recomment Allie. He also offered to be there for us if we had any questions the following days. Choose him and you will not regret it.

We had a great day.Ali was well organised but flexible enough to respond to varied interests and abilities. The able hiked at Cape Point and the less able enjoyed an early evening wander along Buffels Bay beach with no pressure to hurry. We would have missed a large group of whales passing Hout Bay without his enthusiastic eye and superior camera lens and learned sympathy with baboon troupes, unjustly labelled "dangerous'.Ali is also someone who has much to tell about life in Cape Town both then and now.

Allie was very good and enthusiastic. He was very knowledgeable and personable. While we understand that he drives a smart car, we would have preferred a larger vehicle. Using a Mercedes Class E vehicle for a 4-hour tour may not have been the best choice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Boss please accept my Sincere Apologies for any inconvenience caused. And I thank you once again for the interest you have showed in my services Allie

Allie was one of the best guides we have ever had(over 50 guides worldwide). He was well organized, polite and personable. Having lived in Cape Town his entire life, he was extremeley knowledgable. He seemed to know everyone, parking attendants, waiters, park rangers... It was very impressive how he was able to get us a parking spot when there was none, get us a table when there was a long queue, etc. He was marvelous.

Wow, what a fantastic tour guide. He was waiting for us prior to our getting off the boat.Our group of 4 were thrilled beyond all expectations. Able to make our tour come alive in all aspects. Allie is extremely flexible and once he knows what his clients are interested in he goes out of his way to make sure they have a wonderful day. We learned about the history of the land went to sights he felt we would enjoy above what was on our itinerary. We did a great deal of laughing as well.Sad to end day

Had a wonderful day with Allie. He was a superb guide, very knowledgeable about all the places we visited and very flexible on timings. He ensured that we got the best service and seats everywhere we went. I don't think we would have had the same experience had we driven the tour ourselves. Would heartily recommend him.
