Date: Feb 20/20

Clive met us at the Cape Town Harbour Terminal building, as he arranged with us. An excellent visit to the Cheetah Rehabilitation Centre in Somerset East, and the rest of the day went very well. Clive realised that we planned to return to the Paarl wine region the following day so modified the proposed tour to suit the needs of our two new tourists. Clive was helpful and friendly, providing lots of useful information with us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Don, thank you for your taking time for your comments. It was very nice to meet you and very interesting hearing about your travels. Hopefully your guests enjoyed the trip as well. Kind regards to all.

Date: Feb 19/20

Clive does not do a hackneyed touristy tour. He works out your interests and combines it with his insider knowledge of the city. He is pleasant and very flexible. We skipped Table Mountain because of the queues and enjoyed a visit to Kristenbosch Botanical Gardens, a drive around the back of the mountain and along the Atlantic seaboard beaches, visit to the colorful Bo-Kaap Malay district where we had a great Cape Malay lunch, a tour of the Jewish museum, which was great and a visit to Zeitz MoCAA.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathleen, I' so glad the itinerary worked for you as I was a little worried if we had hit the mark. It was a pleasure touring with you and I wish you safe travels. Kind regards Clive

Clive was one of the best guides we have ever hired. He has so many years experience and it really pays off. He turned a great trip into an amazing experience. Clive is an honest and caring human being who treats people with genuine kindness. Did all the work behind the scenes booking tickets in advance, etc., which maximised our time to explore. Highly recommended and was really considerate of our teenage son! Thanks Clive, you were a gent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Once again, thank you for your amazing rating and I enjoyed the trip as much as you of course - wonderful family and only a pleasure. I'd like to visit your "quiet neck of the woods" sometime although not sure I could take the weather☺

Clive drove us to a lovely home in Bo'keep where Gamida then helped us prepare a lovely meal. Her instructions were simple, her manner quite lovely, and the meal really tasty. It was fun and a bit different than all the other activities on our agenda while in Cape Town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jen, Glad you all enjoyed the meal.I have sent you the recipes and hope you have fun cooking for friends back home. Safe travels.

Clive was an outstanding tour guide. His vehicle was prectically new and was sparkling clean. Clive was very knowledgeable of all the sites and always knew the best routes to take to minimize delays and maximize our time. He was well versed in the history of South Africa and of the current events happening in the country. He was always flexible and respectful of our time. We would use him again without reservation.

We had a wonderful day with Clive on our private tour as we visited a Cheetah rescue, drove over to Spice Route and then participated in our Malay cooking class. He was a wonderful guide, very informative and knowledgeable. This was our first full day in Cape Town and he introduced us to a variety of activities and sites that not everyone gets to enjoy. Thanks for a great day!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there, Thank you for your posting and I know you have been travelling. I've forwarded the 'recipes' and glad you enjoyed our trip together - it was fun.

Clive was prompt picking us up. He took us to the botanical gardens, which were amazing, up Table Mountain, and to the Jewish Museum, as well as to a bird and wildlife sanctuary. We had lunch in Hoek Bay, sitting at a table with a direct view of the beach and the beautiful water and waves. Clive provided relevant background for all the sites. He is a safe and careful driver . We enjoyed our day.

Clive was an amazing guide for our family (grandparents, kids and grandkids) trip to Cape Town. He paced our sightseeing day according to our interests and always managed to avoid crowds at popular sights. His commentary was very interesting with pearls for the rest of our stay. My only regret is that we ran out of time and weren't able to do his cooking tour--guess we'll need to come back! We all, kids included, highly recommend touring with Clive; we feel like we saw the Cape with a friend. Many thanks!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words and i'm looking forward to your next trip. It was lovely traveling with the family and such good kids. Warm regards to all.
