What people are saying about Cape Town

Interesting trip but outcome very much depending on luck!

You get picked up very early (5:15 am) to drive to Gaansbai, where you get a quick breakfast and an introduction to the upcoming trip. Then you board the boat and after ca. 25 min arrive at the anchor point. On board you change into the diving suits and then the first group of people go into the cage. Water was very cold and you don’t see very far. What you see in the end depends very much on your luck: for me personally, it was a rather disappointing experience though others on the same trip did get to see more sharks. If you don’t mind this „gamble“ I‘d recommend going.

Interesting tour of the penal island and prison.

Tour combined a boat trip from Cape Town with a bus tour of the island and a foot tour of the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for most of his life. The prison tour led by a former political prisoner. The tour is a must for all believers in personal liberty and democracy. It gives an insight into the life of the man who gave up so much for the freedom of his people, and did so much to bring his country together.

Fun in kayaks with nature education thrown in.

The kayaks & other gear were in excellent condition. The excursion started with a brief on how to work the kayak & what to expect during the trip. There were two hosts to always ensure participants had someone nearby. The pace was manageable & through a beautiful area. The info on the penguins & wildlife was especially enjoyable. Very knowledgable fun leaders made for a great experience out on the water.

Magnificent! Such a good experience for a 40th!

It was an absolute perfect experience. We were so blessed with perfect weather! Catered for everyone: one could take part in the dancing inside or just enjoy the spectacular view outside. Cape Town is a beautiful city. Had lots of fun on the boat with Dutch guests as well. Safety briefing before was good. Our grandchildren or 7 and 9 enjoyed themselves as well. Thanks for a super experience.

No doubt one of the best decisions I took on the trip

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for our anniversary in CPT and I got the cruise with the dinner at CityGrill. The cruise was magnificent, the view, the environment, the staff, everything was perfect!! We even saw a whale!!!! And the dinner was awesome, the 3 courses were to be chosen from a limited menu, EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!! Thanks
