Excellent! We had a great time due in large part to our guide's (Albert P.) knowledge of the area, friendly personality and positive attitude. We highly recommend Albert to anyone coming to Africa who wants to sit back, enjoy the scenery and soak in the African experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yay, glad you enjoyed your trip! I'll looking forward to our next one together!!!

An incredible tour with history, perspective and personality. We ventured off for a wine tour and got so much more. Not only was Albert relatable to us, he connected with our 6 year old like a long lost uncle. He had a plan but allowed us to make choices along the way, just as a friend would when one is visiting. If we could give more stars we would - we found he was available for the last day of our trip and immediately booked him for another adventure. HIGHLY recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yay, I'm so glad you enjoyed your day out in the winelands. I definitely had fun!

Albert was outstanding. We learned a lot about Cape Town and its history. He went an extra mile at the end of the day taking us to the Silo Hotel to view an amazing sunset. He also gave us some tips for visiting nearby winerys and restaurants. This was one of the best guided tours that we have had. If we visit Cape Town again, we will contact Albert for another tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awesome! I'm glad you had a great day! And yes, I'm looking forward to your next visit... ;) Hope you have a great day in the winelands. Albert

Albert is an excellent guide, and we had a terrific day. He took us to the places we asked to see, was accommodating about stopping to take photos, and brought us to an interesting mineral shop he thought would interest us. He knows the wildlife well and spotted animals in the distance that looked like tiny dots to us until pointed them out. He also volunteered to push a wheelchair down a steep ramp so one of the group could see the penguin colony that he would have otherwise missed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awesome!!! Glad you enjoyed your trip! And I can't wait to host you next time you come.

The Wine Tour was an enjoyable experience and the added chocolate visit made it memorable. Albert shared his knowledge and gave us options to tailor our visit around our interests. I spent time researching the available guides and Albert was a great choice.

The Peninsula Tour is a must when visiting Cape Town and your guide is crucial. I selected Albert. Albert was very knowledgeable, personable, and more importantly flexible. I hired him for two trips and he didn't disappoint our group. He started off by explaining what he planned to visit and cover on the trip and gave us the option to amend the itinerary. Along the way he shared his wealth of knowledge about South Africa. All of us had a great time and learned so much! Albert was the best!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yay... Thank you for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in The Cape! Albert

Fabulous tour guide (Albert); great knowledge of local area and outlying areas. Good history but not to the point of being too much. Albert customizes the tour based on your interests and can do this at time of first meeting if necessary. Great suggestions on where to eat for lunch. All in, an extremely enjoyable visit and tour. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great rating Wayne! I trust all when well with your meetings...

I have quite literally been around the world- and Albert was the best guide any of our group of five has ever had. We had a wonderful time and it was all thanks to him and his expertise (as well as his sense of humor)! He left all of us wanting to return to Cape Town as well as us calling him specifically when we do! Albert may as well be family! He is the absolute best and catered our tour perfectly to our interests! If I were to rate Albert - he would be at least a 10!

Excellent tour with a knowledgeable, fun, professional guide, Albert, who is also a great historical storyteller. We toured the Cape Peninsula on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. We visited many sights and Albert is a competent driver who made me feel safe and comfortable at all times. Definitely the highlight of my visit. Highly recommend Albert and this tour.

It's easy for a tour guide to be successful when everything goes smoothly, but it is outstanding when he is successful when everything does not go smoothly. Albert went above and beyond to adjust our itinerary when one of our venues was overcrowded. He quickly found a great substitute, and extended the tour until all of our needs had been met. 5 stars are not enough to rate his outstanding and caring service. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the Cape. Looking forward to your next visit!!!
