It's been almost two months since our stay in Cape Town, but the memories of touring the city and the cape with John Lawrence still fills us with warmth. The mechanics of organizing the trip and meeting up worked without a hitch, and we saw the sights stress-free. More importantly, John is deeply knowledgeable and brings everything to life. You...

We drew on Big Blue Sky Tours for help during a four day stay in Cape Town, as part of a two week family holiday in South Africa. Fantastic support - we were able to customise and plan our four days of tours easily, and informally, through back and forths over email ahead of our holiday; and then had a... More

We spent two fantastic days with John in the Western Cape Wine Lands. Everything went smoothly from the first contact by email, itinerary proposal, pick up from our CT hotel, etc. The journey took us from Cape Town in a northern direction to Swartland. We started at the Groote Post and from there towards Darling where we had time to... More

We spent one half day touring wine country with John. He gave us the history of the wine region and current information on the area. John also stopped at a local pottery shop when I mentioned my interest. He suggested stops that he felt would be most representative of the area. John had been recommended by two other couples and...

John made our two days in Cape Town really special. More than just a tour guide, he showed us around like a friend with an immense knowledge of this breathtaking coastal city. I particularly enjoyed my casual conversations with John about anything under the big blue sky, and his articulate sense of dry humour never failed to crack me up.... More

We had an outstanding experience with John Lawerence leading us through Cape Town for two days. He was extremely knowledgeable about Cape Town history, fauna, flora and he was a delight to spend time with. My wife and I would highly recommend John and his tour company.

We scheduled a quick visit to Cape Town last minute and we didn't have much time to research things to do or see. We thankfully were referred to John and he created an amazing itinerary for us! We only had about 24 hours and he scheduled for us to see most of the highlights, including going to the top of... More

I can't say enough good things about John and his team and Big Blue Sky. My wife and I did part of our honeymoon in Cape Town and were lucky enough to do a tour of wine country with them. John was hugely knowledgeable about everything from the history of the areas we were going through to the local hot... More
