Being our first time in Cape town, we were extremely privileged to be taken around the scenic sights of Cape Town and Surrounds, we couldn't have asked for a nicer, caring, more knowledgeable person to do this with us. On the three tours we had with Martin, we were shown some amazing sights, animals, tasted wonderful food, learnt about the culture and history of this wonderful country and had an amazing fun time. Being a family of three, traveling with our 7 year old, Martin made us feel truly welcome and we enjoyed his trips thoroughly, we all had a fantastic time, thankyou again Martin, we have some very special memories which we hold forever. We recommend Martin to anyone who wants to see this fantastic country, again thankyou x

“Fantastic fun tour around cape town!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Martin was a fantastic knowledgable guide, he picked us up and took us to Simon's Town to see the penguins, had lunch at Black MarlinSeafood Restaurant, and then he took us on a wine route around Constantia. The following day, he took us up to Table mountain which was beautiful. Definitely recommend him for a private fun cape town tour.

“Cape fun tours... The only one you should consider....”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We are a family of four who quite frankly whilst fortunate enough to be well travelled... Knew very little at the start of our day with Martin... Well at the end of the say we had not only seen much, much, much more than we ever dreamed of.... We also learned so so much along the way too!

Martin's knowledge of the Cape is just incredible! History, politics, geography,ecology, flora, fauna, wildlife, wines and restaurants were just a few of the very good value for money aspects of the time we spent with Martin.

I would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Martin to any one wanting a guide from a few hours to a few weeks... You'll never be bored and you'll not miss a thing!!

“The best way to see The Cape and Wine Estates”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

We had the pleasure of having Martin guide us and take us out for 2 full days. The first day we went to Simon Town to see the penguins and the history of the town, Cape point with spectacular views and baboons, lunch at a lovely fish place in Houts Bay and a little tour of the city.

The second day we went on a wine tour and this was fantastic. The wineries are truly beautiful and we were looked after very well by Martin and the Estates, we even went chocolate tasting.
We had lunch again and a fantastic setting at Roca, food is amazing and a view to die for.

Martin is very knowledgable and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Martin truly loves what he does and will take you to the best places. The people vehicle Martin has which he will drive you round in is luxurious and extremely comfortable and big.

When I head back to Cape Town I will be using Martin again to take us about. I strongly recommend using him. Thank you Martin for a great couple of days.

“Two Days With Martin Isn't Enough”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We had a lovely two days with Martin and it just wasn't enough. Martin's knowledge of South Africa and the wine region were just what we needed to truly immerse ourselves in the experience and to realize we did not give ourselves NEARLY enough time. Martin also specializes in boutique wineries so if you want to stay away from the big commercial producer and try some outstanding smaller labels, he'll know just where to take you. Together, through some highly fortuitous circumstances, we found Lynx, a small vineyard that ended up being one of our favorites on the trip (I'm anxiously awaiting my shipment's arrival.) I also highly recommend a stop at La Petit Ferme, which requires a reservation. Martin will take you wherever you want to go though. So if you have something in mind, just let him know. But if you want an experience guided by someone with a lot of history and background, let him lead you through. (Also ask to stop in for the chocolate tasting. You'll love it!)
