“Postcards from South Africa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We always wanted to go to Africa, and when our english friends suggested Cape Town we agreed in a second! Itinerary was very interesting even only reading it. A guarantee for a good adventure was our guide Pieter Germishuys. A 10 days trip included City tour (we were there 4 days), with lot of interesting history stories, Cape peninsula, Cape winelands, New Years celebration in Long Street and dance with masses, Waterfront experience and Table Mountain, fine food in nice restaurants and lot of excellent wine for very good price.What definitely remains in memory are peninsula beaches with thousands of black people and the contrast between white sand their dark bodies. Amazing! 6 DAY GARDEN ROUTE SAFARI + Camping included Schotia Safari’s and Addo Elephant Park,ostrich farm in Oudtshoon, stunning Cango caves, Tsitsikamma National Park, Sundowner Cruise in Knysna, million dollar houses on cliffs, Mossel Bay with Diaz Museum. We saw a heart stopping 216 meter Bungy Jumping on Bloukrans Bridge. After all I have to mention our 3-hour experience from Jo'burg Downtown. Since me and my wife flew back home from Jo'burg we had whole day free. We were strongly advised to stick within the business centre, but it was so boring so we decided to try visiting downtown. A man on a street also said it was not safe to go there but finally showed us how to catch a transport to our destination: stand on a sidewalk, rise your point finger, the cab with no signs stops, you pay only 10 rands per person and you don't have to worry when to get off: final stop is your destination. Only black people use this kind of transport, but we didn't feel uncomfortable not a single second, everybody were very kind although wondering a bit seeing two of us whites. Final station is like a beehive: life on a streets, trading, haircutting,alternative healing, music all around, shouting, car horns, empty buildings, tones of garbage, people sleeping on a grass, hundreds of surprised looks towards us, lot of those not so friendly. A girl in a cab warned us to keep on a main square, not to go to back streets.On a square a policeman saw us and with friendly smile asked us what on earth we were doing there! I said we'd like to move around a little bit, do some photos, etc.He couldn't believe his ears and said: "Please, take the cab and go back, I don't want somebody robs you!"
After we insisted, he told me to put the camera in a back bag, called two young guys standing in a back and told them to make sure nothing happens to us and to walk us through the streets. They were a policemen in a civil uniform with a police sign on the shirts. Chris and Handsome (cool name) literally took care of us: they were our bodyguards, following us to the toilet, watching my back when I was on a cash machine, one was always walking in front and the other behind us, when I made a mistake and tried to photograph with my iPhone a group of young men obviously smoking pot and drinking alcohol in a park, and when 5-6 of them stood up and headed towards us shouting, Chris and Handsome stood in front of me and my wife and told them to go away showing their badges-well, that was very efficient! Even though our guardians couldn't understand the reason of our visit, trying all the time to show us shopping malls and some modern things, we could feel at the end they appreciated our interest to real life in this dangerous town. We saw only one white person and we all were surprised and laughing! We were very happy after this experience, and for us it was even better than a safari :-)
We strongly recommend visiting Jo'burg downtown for everybody looking for some adrenaline!
We will definitely go back and organize something else with Pieter Germishuys, it's worth every cent!

“Fascinating Garden Route Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

Besides the awesome country especially Pieter made two tours we joined to a great experience. He is a great, humorous character. He guided us to wonderful spots and was always flexible to re-arrange based on our ideas what to undertake. He loves his country - that's why he can introduce culture, (politics if you like) and especially nature with real passion to his guests. One day he prepared a great braai (Snoek) and another day he brought us everything for an adventurous night in a tent (this was our special wish).
Especially when you are in South Africa only for a limited timeframe it is definitely worth to take a tour with Pieter. By that you can get most out of your trip instead of traveling alone through a country you don't know.
We hope to see him once again in Namibia...

“Breathtaking tour with a trusted company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

We have heard many things about Cape Town, and some of the them unfortunately negative, especially when coming from a safe city such as Singapore. But the Cape surprised us and what made the trip memorable was the positive experience with Cape Team Tours. We booked a tour that included an airport transfer for when we arrived which was very convenient.

We received very prompt responses to our email queries from Pieter who also personally came to collect us from the airport. Both he and Rudy were very accommodating to our requests- nothing was impossible. We had fantastic conversations with Rudy who was our tour guide, who showered us with interesting facts about the Cape and ensured we stopped at all the scenic spots for some stunning shots.

In short this company offers a personalised and genuine service- they really want to make sure you have a memorable experience and all at a great value. Thanks Pieter and Rudy.

“Wonderful day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Rudi and his wife were our tour guides for a full day cape tour. The weather was perfect, the sites/scenery unforgettable, our guides...the best. What a lovely couple - they were both very knowledgable, kind, funny, and accommodating. We will never forget our day spent with them or touring the Cape. Thank you <3

It is a pleasure to do a daytrip without to worry about traffic and location of where we go. Was able to enjoy the view of Cape Town
