Latest reviews from our guests

    I only had half a day in Cape Town but really feel I got a great understanding of the town and how it got to where it is today culturally, economically and politically. Exactly what I wanted to understand.

    We had a great tour with Tafa. He is friendly and has good knowledge of the history of Cape Town and is a good storyteller. He drives a good car suitable for 6 persons. He takes his guiding task serious and we felt comfortable and safe. His English was good. We recommend Tafa if you are looking for a good guide or chauffeur.
