What people are saying about Cape Town City Centre

Good overview of the city

Good introduction to Cape Town. The guide was very good and knowledgeable and was particularly helpful as one of our party was wheelchair bound. My only criticism is of the admin leading up to it. Told 0800 pick up. When I confirmed was told 0845 and driver turned up at 0910. This shortened our trip as I had booked a.m tickets on the cable car following initial booking.

This was an absolutely fantastic tour. You could not have asked for a better guide in Armond. Knowledgeable, entertaining and a great sense of humour. Well priced and we did everything that was described in tour. Rating this 10/10!!! Thank you.
