Now home, my impressions of Craig remain as strong as they were at the time of our 3 tours. Fabulous! Craig is professional, knowledgeable, exudes pride in his job and city & is extremely welcoming & fun to be with. Once I let him know I wanted to climb Lion's Head he left no stone unturned to make it happen for me -- ultimately coming to the hotel at 5:00 AM to hike with me up the mountain before our full day tour! To say Craig makes his guests' wishes his priority is an understatement. Book Craig!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this wonderful feedback, Mark! Xxx

Second day touring with Craig. We had a wonderful day beginning with the cable car ride up to the summit of Table MountIn, the result of Craig's expertise in judging weather conditions and timing to start! We continued into Winelands and Craig presented us with options, identifying implications of all choices and helped us create a fabulous day. It was a great day, we experienced a lot and learned a lot.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! And thank you for understanding our need to be flexible due to changing weather. Delighted that we were able to fit in the Table Mountain cable car experience when we did, which is often a challenge.

We just completed three days of tours in and around Cape Town with our guide, Craig. Craig is probably the best guide I have ever had. And having travelled to many places in this world, that's high praise. He is personable, interesting, knowledgeable, energetic and willing to clarify difficult topics. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars Ruth and Simon.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! I also enjoyed our tours very much, and appreciated your deep level of interest and engagement.

Great wine tasting tour with Craig. Very knowledgeable on the wines and Hermanus area. Craig took us to three great vineyards including a great lunch at Creation. He is also a very careful driver. A great day out.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback, David! I loved our day out too; so lovely to focus on the wineries of the Hemel en Aarde Valley we don't get to often enough outside of the whale watching season, despite their world class quality and beauty.

Craig did a wonderful job on our trip to Hermanus. He kept us informed of trip changes and options due to weather concerns and really went above and beyond in planning our day! We had a wonderful day whale viewing, wine tasting and enjoying the incredible scenery. Craig is extremely knowledgable and you will be very happy that you chose to spend your time with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback & kind words, Katie! I enjoyed our day out together too, a pity we couldn't go on the boat trip due to weather, but thank you for your flexibility & understanding.

Craig is an outstanding guide. He has a great conversational style that imparts information without lecturing. He was able to engage in conversation about topics of interest to the group beyond his fun facts. He managed our group of five effortlessly - allowing us to enjoy the places we visited, but making us aware of time restrictions so we could get to all the things on our agenda. We highly recommend him and would absolutely encourage you to book him for your own tour in Cape Town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your feedback, Jen! It was just a day, but a good one which I will remember - thank you!

Our wine lands tour with Craig was everything we could have hoped for. Craig is an incredible guide! Very intuitive and tailored the day to our tastes. I don't believe that there was a question that he didn't know the answer to or a request that he was unable to fill. If he is available for your dates book him! You will be happy that you did!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback & kind words, Katie! I enjoyed our day out together too, and loved all our interesting conversations not just about wine but so much else!

Craig is a wonderful guide. He is extremely well informed and organized. We learned a lot about the area. Is was a great day - We loved all parts of it. But the Botanical Garden was a big highlight. This is a great way to see the area outside of the downtown.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the feedback! Thanks too for being clear about what you wanted to do, though it's not easy prioritizing when there are so many options! Delighted that you enjoyed the botanical garden so much.

Craig is an exceptional guide! We were in Cape Town for 3 1/2 days and he was our guide for our entire time in Cape Town. Craig was the best tour guide we've ever had and we have had a lot of great guides! Craig was very organized. He had everything planned ahead, but was also flexible according to what we wanted to do. He was so knowledgeable about everything from history to flora and fauna to the best places to eat. It doesn't matter what tour you book with Craig - it's going to be a great experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen, thank you so much for your wonderful review, and for giving me clear information about your preferences which helped me in my planning. I will also remember our tour as a great trip with fun people! Who knows, maybe see you again in the future?!

We engaged Craig for a full day tour in Cape Town that included a stunningly beautiful coastal drive to Cape of Good Hope, a stop to see the colony of African Penguins, winery visit etc. This day was beyond perfect b/c Craig was so knowledgeable about the geography, history and lore. Most importantly, he was so intuitive about interest noting our interest and was flexible talking about legends,the flora, taking us to a surfing community and yet always staying at a comfortable pace. A wonderful guide.

Rating 5 out of 5, If we could rate him higher than 5 we would. Cannot speak highly enough about our great day with Craig going out to the Cape of Good Hope. He is knowledgeable, pleasant, thoughtful, flexible, considerate. We booked with Craig because of the enthusiastic reviews he received, and we were not disappointed. His tours are priced higher than some but well worth it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking me, enjoying the beautiful day out with me, and for your feedback and very kind words which I appreciate!

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

Craig is the consummate professional. We had a long list of things we wished to see in CapeTiwn and Craig delivered! We asked to visit a local low income school to deliver 2 boxes of school supplies & books to disadvantaged youth and viola, Craig located and contacted one for us. It was amazing to meet the kids.! We saw the penguins at Boulders, the BoKaap (including tastiy offerings from a local vendor) , as well as a comprehensive city tour. Packed with humor & information our day was perfect. He's #1.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking me, thank you for the feedback, but mostly, thank you for your extraordinary generosity and for packing all that stuff in your luggage and asking me to help find a home for it - it will make such a difference in the lives of people who need all the help they can get.
