Absolutely amazing. The views were spectacular and unfortunately, we did not have too many thermals so could not spend maximum time in the air. The "roller-coaster" experience over the ocean before we landed was the highlight. I felt absolutely safe the entire time and even my husband who is scared of height loved the paragliding. JUST DO IT

Fantastic experience … absolutely exceeded expectations… not just the safari drive but also the trip and stops there and back … we were with bokbus and saw amazing views and visited Cape Agulus , Hermanus and Betty’s Bay … absolutely fabulous xx

Absolutely amazing, I had the best time and felt extremely safe the whole way through. Some of the nicest people we’ve met in South Africa & one of the most memorable experiences we have had!! If you’re thinking of booking it, DO IT!

The vibe on the cruise was on a 100, the champagne guys were very friendly and brought nice vibes. The food at the restaurant was also very nice

Faldela was both a great tour guide and a great teacher!
