A tour guide's role is vital as often it's the tourist's first impression with the people and culture of the place they're visiting.

Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa, capital of the Western Cape and the most beautiful city by the sea, is on everyone's 'bucket list'.

'Fynbos' part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the richest in the world with more than  8 500 different species and only found in the Western Cape.

Bontebok only found in South Africa and Lesotho, with the Western Cape home to the largest numbers.

Our 9 different Wine Regions offer tourists more than 500 different wine estates to visit and sample cultivars such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Shiraz and even our own exclusive Pinotage.

Tourist will love South Africa's sunshine and exquisite scenery. We offer many outdoor activities such as hiking in the Cedarberg Mountains. "Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world." - Gustave Flaubert

Hermanus, only 1,5 hours from Cape Town, rated the best 'whale sighting' destination in the world. Join us for the Whale festival in September.

The spring flowers along the West Coast cover the land with a colourful carpet each year from July to September.

Coastal towns along the Cape coastline offer tourists scenic beauty, tranquility and rest.

Share your love for Cape Town and South Africa with others by becoming a tourist guide. "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
