Recently myself and a co-worker decided to travel to Cape Town, South Africa. We were both overwhelmed with the myriad of activities to chose from, along with the many travel companies in the area. I am writing this review because I want others choosing to travel to Cape Town to have the same experience I did and I attribute it all to one tour guide company, Skaris Touring. However, there is a possibility that I am biased. You see, our tour guide was phenomenal. We chose to go with Skaris Touring and were lucky enough to have the owner George as our tour guide for 2 out of 3 of the Skaris Tours.
Upon arrival, we coordinated with George Skaris to do a chauffeured motorcycle tour along the coast of Cape Town, SA. He ensured that his staff took us along roads which show cased breath taking views of the ocean, plus we went into the non-touristy areas and saw things such as sea lions interacting with the locals. The staff was extremely professional and considerate ensuring that my friend and I had an exceptional time.
Because we were so impressed we booked two more days with Skaris Touring. For these tours we were blessed to have George personally guiding the group. He was very flexible in accommodating to our schedules, picked us up from our residence where we were staying. One of the tours we went to Aquila Safria reserve. During the Safari, George was extremely knowledgable in pointing out all the different types of animals on the reserve, he’s a wealth of knowledge! Not to mention, he’s so fun to be around and will keep you smiling the whole day. He genuinely cares about all his clients and goes out of his way to make sure you’re happy.
On the third tour day, George brought the group to a cheetah rehabilitation center. I was able to pet a 7 month old cheetah, which was an amazing experience. Afterwards the group went wine tasting for the rest of the morning and the afternoon. We had lunch, which was coordinated by George, at a beautiful restaurant overlooking the vineyards. He made the entire day special and I was so impressed that he goes out of his way to include activities you won’t find with most touring companies.
So to sum it all up, a private guide is the best way to travel when you have a short time to see all that is out there. Skaris touring takes all the stress out of having to coordinate activities since they do everything for you. Hands down, George Skaris has the BEST touring company in the Cape Town area. I plan on doing another tour with him in the future and I strongly recommend others to hire him while you’re there. Enjoy!
