Many beautiful areas of the Western Cape deserve at least a night out of town. The best parts of the Garden Route are 6 hours drive from the city! Then there is the R62 route including some fascinating eco-buildings in McGregor - and a bunch of hidden away wonderful natural and cultural sites. Costings for these tours are quite different as there is overnight accommodation to be included in the experience but you can work on a day tour rate to give you a rough idea.

  • 10% discount on tours if booked with accommodation.
  • Lower rates if a child under 12 is in the party.
  •  Tours are designed for maximum of 6 people at this stage. Big groups – contact direct for possibilities and prices.
  • Entry fees for nature parks where necessary are included (though not the Table Mountain Cable Car). Two food/drink-tasting fees are included on food tours. Tour prices do not include cost of meals/refreshments/ show tickets – clients should suggest a price ceiling and guide will select accordingly  – in some cases special performances can be organised specially for the client but this obviously incurs a more exclusive fee.
  • Guides speak English and French. Other languages are available with advanced warning but incur an additional fee proportional to length of tour (approx R100/hr)
  • Reductions available for use of client's own/hire vehicle.
  • Prices vary on number of clients: TOTAL price is given above.
  • Walking tour is an alternative in city centre, and there is a reduced price for this option (R500 off).
  • Standard tours can be altered somewhat to include aspects of your special interests, within reason, without charge. Wellness therapies can be included e.g. massage session, price would be extra according to therapist’s pricing structure.
