Daniel is a very professional and experienced guide. He knows perfectly well the history and the best places to visit in South Africa and therefore can prepare a tailor made tour according to your wishes. We would highly recommend his excellent services. Thank you Daniel!

We booked a township tour with Daniel and his local guide, Mike. Mike was really fabulous - incredibly knowledgable, charismatic, and friendly. Daniel, however, proved to be very disorganized and unreliable after our tour. He claimed one of our party didn't pay even though they submitted the paypal payment multiple times (Daniel never signed in to collect it). In order to pay him the balance we had to schedule a time for him to pick up the payment over a week after our tour and the first time he was a no show! We waited at our guest house for over an hour for him to collect his payment before we finally left to explore for the day. The next day he finally made it to collect his payment, but the whole process was incredibly inconvenient for all members of our party. Additionally, I asked clearly over email multiple times for two invoices, which he never sent (he sent one, but it was incorrect, and he never sent the second one). Unfortunately, I cannot recommend Daniel because of the way he runs his business. To reiterate, the guide he employs is wonderful.

He's a very good guide with lot of humor. I recommend him. We have visited lots of nice place and explained history of Cape Town and South Africa, I've learned a lot. We have spent 1 day 1/2 with him and my 2 children (8 and 10yrs old). He had a very good contact with them and knew how to manage the day to keep their curiosity. I especially enjoyed his knowledge, his humor, his ideas to interest my children, and his flexibility when we wanted to enjoy the atmosphere of a place or when we decided to change the scheduled plans. My children enjoyed to see penguins at boulder's beach, to play with squirrels in the park city, to have lunch at the food market, aquarium and the cheetah farm. In between he drove through places of history and places to relax. Thanks Daniel.

Daniel has a talent, he can tailor you tour of Cape Town to suit your particular interests. Over four busy days, my teenage daughter and I visited the Street Art if Woodstock, the brightly coloured houses in the Bo-Kaap, The famous Mabu record store, the wine regions, the Cape of Good Hope penguins, the Hout Bay Cape fur seals, the township of Langa and Table mountain. Along the way he gave us a potted history of European settlement, an insight into South African politics, an explanation of Apartheid and its impact on the people of South Africa and shared some of the worst "dad jokes" in existence with us. I would highly recommend Daniels tour. He booked lunch at interesting restaurants each day, introducing to us a variety of South African cuisine. He guided us to the front of the queue at attractions and ensured we got access to the best souvenir and diamond brokers. Daniel has a wealth of knowledge about South Africa and Cape Town. His tours will take you to places catering to your particular interests and he is extremely accommodating. You will feel safe, comfortable and well informed. Highly Recommended.
