“By George - he was the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I belong to a group of girlfriends who go away once a year for a little R&R and some downtime from the hubbies and kids (of which we have 19 between the 9 of us - children that is, NOT husbands!). This year, the organisers arranged for us to visit Cape Town and they hired George to be our chauffeur, tour guide and all round nice guy! And that he was...
As a group we have all been to, or lived in , Cape Town so I loved the flexibility of the tours. When nothing was happening at the restaurant we thought we would go to for dinner, he took us to Beluga instead (and booked a table for us) - which was wonderful! When we needed to stop for a toilet break, we did so at a quaint place in Kommetjie (not just the Engen garage).
George was knowledgable, dependable and lots of fun! I would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to see the best that the Cape has to offer - with their own itinerary and at their own pace!

“Incredible time in Cape Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

George is truly good at what he does, he is knowledgeable, professional and has a great sense of humor. We were traveling with three kids under 9 and George was very good with them. He made sure that the kids had plenty of entertainment, making sure and stopping to see animals and other oddities along the way. We were introduced to great food, incuding local's restaurants that may not be in your tradidional tourist routes. Everyone in our group of 10 felt at ease with George. He was very good at answering our questions giving us insightful information about the history, geography or just simply daily cultural mores in SA. Thanks George!!!

“Very Satisfying Table Mountain & Half-day CT sights tour with George!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

Joining my wife for a look around Cape Town for the first time before her work conference, we were greeted by a very friendly and personable George Skaris from Skaris Touring for our airport transfers! It was perfect weather, so we decided to follow a friend's recommendation and make going to the top of Table Mountain our first priority. So, we asked George if he was free to take us up there that afternoon, and do a half-day Cape Town sightseeing tour afterwards - and we're glad to say he was! We're really glad we engaged his services! George was friendly, conversational, and though definitely an extrovert, not obtrusive. The Table Mountain experience was great and was enhanced with some of the extra information thrown in by George. And the CT half day tour was fun and flexible, aided by George's knowledge of traffic conditions allowing a smooth ride from point to point. Probably one of the highlights was viewing Sea lions up-close-and-personal at a special little spot known to few! We could even take close up shots from the van - we were that close. Ask George to take you there when you book! :) Overall, a very satisfying tour - and would highly recommend George for your tour needs in Cape Town! Thanks again George!

“Amazing Cape Town tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

This was not our first time in Cape Town and I can honestly say that we enjoyed this visit much more than the other times. We spent two days with Skaris Touring in a very flexible and relaxed tour, just the way we wanted it to be. The different activities organized by George included not only the "must-do" turist places but also some local hangouts to really feel the city. We are definitely going to stay in touch for our next visit.
