Joline was a wonderful tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and engaging. I enjoyed her sharing her background. I highly recommend this tour as an introduction to Cape Town.
Lesley did a great job - personable, knowledgeable, answered questions. A very enjoyable tour.
Joline provided a most authoritative and compelling overview of Cape Town’s history focusing on Dutch occupation and the impact of slavery through the 19th century. Her own personal history deeply enriched our experience with her.
