My wife and I and another couple toured with Craig over a 3 days period. Hiring Craig was one of the best decisions of our trip. He was extremely professional and customized our tour to maximize our vacation experience in the Cape Town, Hermanus and Wine Lands areas. He is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. We will highly recommend Craig to all of our family and friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback, Jeff! Glad that you all so enjoyed the day in the Winelands and learned not only about South African wines but more generally about the wonderful world of wine!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeff Thank you for telling me exactly what you wanted to do in the middle day of our 3 days, so we could customize the tour according to your needs & movements. What a drive it was down to Hermanus at the ocean, then over the mountains to Franschhoek in the Winelands!

Tour: #275528, Private Scenic Cape Peninsula tour to the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town, South Africa    view tour
Date: Jul 25/18

This was one of the best tours I've ever been on. We had a brief layover in Cape Town and wanted to see as much as possible. Craig custom designed our tour to our interests and time. He picked us up from the airport and delivered us to our hotel at the end. He was incredibly accommodating, told us everything about the animals/amazing plants, kept his eye on the time so we arrived at signal hill just in time for sunset. He reprioritized as we went along to maximize our time at the Cape, with the penguins

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to help you max out on everything you could see and do between your plane arriving and the sun going down - love your spirit, that's what it's about! Thank you for making the detour through Cape Town, maybe one day you can return to spend more time! Happy travels & enjoy the safari.

We were a party of four arriving in Cape Town after a safari in Tanzania. We spent two wonderful days with Craig. Day one was a tour of the Winelands primarily Stellenbosch and day two was a tour down the peninsula to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. Craig did an outstanding job on both tours of giving us history, interesting facts and an overview of the entire area. We would highly recommend using Craig as a guide in Cape Town and surrounding area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great feedback, Dean! Delighted that you enjoyed it as much as I did.

We had an amazing day with Craig. He was knowledgeable and informative and able to provide answers to all our questions. His experience of the route enabled him to ensure we were not caught up in long queues and he knew just the spots for a great photograph. He was also responsive to our needs too and blended them into his plan. He was pleasant and friendly but remained professional throughout and we would recommend him unreservedly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback, Richard! Happy Travels and do come back again!

Craig is a wealth of information and a fun person to be around. I had a super time being toured through many parts of town and he made the tour specifically according to my wishlist, adding spots he knew might suit my tour style. Highly recommend choosing Craig as your local guide. It was a fab day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How awesome to meet you & enjoy it with you, Sabrina! Thank you.

We wanted to really relax and enjoy a full wine tasting day in the fabulous Stellenbosch and Franschhoek areas. Craig took the wheel for us and planned the tour leaving us to enjoy 4 different estates, Simonsig, Mutarie, Camberley and Marianne, each one a treat with their own wine specialities. We built in a lunch break at the superb Franchhoek Kitchen which I would highly recommend. Craig delivered us safely back to our holiday home at the end of a very memorable and stress-free day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for having me show you around the Winelands even though you had your own vehicles and were mostly doing your own explorations independently ... But a perfect solution to drinking without driving!

This was our acclimatisation day after arriving at the airport just before midnight the evening before. In addition to a tour of the main city highlights Craig gave us a very helpful insight into the city network, how to get around from A to B, where to pick up essentials, and built in a breakfast stop for us on what was our first day. The tour got our holiday off to a flying start, gave us a chance to take it easy, and recover after a 12 hour flight, it set us up well for self-drive the day after.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was fun to help you & your lovely family orientate yourselves around Cape Town and your local area - a little different from the usual touring routine!

Craig is a well organised and reliable guide with a good understanding of the needs of travellers. He made us feel comfortable from the start of the tour. He selected good routes and sights to see in his tour. The timetable was just right and we saw a mixture of natural attractions, 2 wineries and some lovely suburbs that locals live in. His vehicle was very comfortable and he was pleasant and willing to discuss local matters with us. We gladly recommend Craig as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, Jerome! Delighted to have been given the chance to share this beautiful corner of the world with you and some of the great variety it offers.

Craig made time in his jam-packed schedule to take us to the Winelands. We wanted to fit a lot into the day, so he gave us a great balance of Cheetah Outreach, four wineries, commentary on historic buildings, and some time for shopping. He has great energy, and is a wealth of knowledge on seemingly all aspects of his beloved country. No wonder he is so popular! He's busy with his own tour company too, so recommended Iggy as a very experienced guide who is relatively new to Tours by Locals. Thanks, Craig!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking me, and for the feedback, Marianne - so glad I was able to share our beautiful Winelands with you!

"Craig gave our group of four adults a full day tour of Cape Town. He did much of the guiding himself, taking us to places both famous and lesser-known. And he also arranged some "speciality" events for us, such as a tour of Langa Township by a local resident, Nathi, who showed us both the beauty and the pain of township life. It was an absolutely fantastic day. We loved every minute, even though it was raining heavily for part of the day. Craig is interesting, knowledgeable, fun and a natural tour guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great feedback! Yes, a city tour in the rain can be a challenge, but your positive attitude helped us get through, and the realities of township life always puts many so-called challenges into perspective. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Cape Town stay and come back one day!

Our tour with Craig was the highlight of our stay in Capetown. Craig was so personable and polite. He was very knowledgeable on everything we saw. He was on time to pick us up and planned our day to do everything we had agreed on. Craig saved us time and worry on our tour. He even suggested great restaurants and after the tour dropped us off at one of his recommended spots and saved us cab fare back from our hotel. He is a one of a kind tour guide, You will enjoy your day with Craig because he cares.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great feedback, Danny, it also helped that you were so clear in your communication about what you wanted to do and see. That makes a good match! Great to meet you all and who knows, maybe see you again one day?!
