My cousin and I took Joanna's Wineland tour and, although I had high expectations, she exceeded them by far. Joanna was extremely nice, smart, informed, and dedicated to our enjoyment. The wines were exquisite and our lunch was out of this world. Please, if you get the chance, book this tour and be thoroughly delighted!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, Thank you for the positive feedback. I hope to welcome you back in Cape Town again soon.

We hiked with Joanna up Table Mountain and down the other side into the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. I cannot fathom doing a hike like this without a guide of Joanna's knowledge and skill. Her positive energy got us though the day and to our destination. Thanks, Joanna, for this unforgettable experience!

We were so happy with our guide, Joanna Jayne. She was so knowledgeable and excited to tell us about her city and countryside.The second tour she took us on was to the peninsula. What views!!! She was so willing to show us the penguins and the beautiful little towns we drove through. She is an excellent guide and I would be sure to have her if we returned to CapeTown. Joanna was happy to add tours to a brandy tasting and called and added it. She was organized, prompt, and her car was very comfortable.

We were so happy with our guide. She was so knowledgeable and excited to tell us about her city and countryside. Our first tour was to wine country and she loved telling us about the history of the wineries we visited. She is an excellent guide and I would be sure to have her if we returned to CapeTown. Joanna was happy to add tours to a brandy tasting and called and added it. She was organized, prompt, and her car was very comfortable.

Joanna was a wonderful tour guide for my one day tour of the Cape! As a lone traveller I was a little nervous arriving at the airport and going straight off on a tour, but Joanna met me at the airport and immediately put my mind at rest. Joanna is so knowledgeable about Cape Town. It was a real pleasure to spend a day getting to know Cape Town with her. When I'm next in Cape Town I'll be booking another tour with Joanna!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katherine, Thank you for the positive feedback. It was a great pleasure hosting you in Cape Town - I look forward to seeing you soon again! Best regards, Joanna

Joanna was very welcoming and informative. As she drove us to the different wine regions, she explained the history of winemaking and specialties of each area. Our wine tasting and wine pairing sessions were arranged so that we got to taste and experience a bit of everything - wine and cheese, wine and chocolates, a cellar tour, and even a sabrage. I'd recommend having Joanna for your wine tour if you're visiting the area.

Joanna was very professional. She customized our tour itinerary to reflect the sights we wanted to explore and allowed us to observe the fabulous Boulder Beach penguins for a longer time. While on our tour, I found out that guided tours were available at the hospital where the first heart transplant was performed by the South African cardiac surgeon, Dr. Christiaan Barnard. I asked Joanna if we could fit this tour in our days schedule by omitting our planned lunch, and Joanna made the change.
