Zade, a remarkable guide, entertained us the entire day, going beyond his original itinerary to make this experience very special. He responded to our wishes, let us into his world, and showed us the interior of this area, including his experience in the transition of South Africa. He let us wander in a lovely, famous garden at one of the... More

We did the full day Peninsula tour in Cape Town. Our driver Derek Lines arrived early for our pickup and was very knowledgeable as he pointed out specific sites that we passed. We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour so Derek was happy to modify the tour at our request and include a couple of the... More

My wife and I joined a group of fellow Americans for a Thompson's all-day tour of the Stellenbosch wine area, including stops at 4 wineries. We enjoyed wine, cheese and biltong. Ray was a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. We especially liked the stop in town of Franschhoek founded by French Huguenots. A day very well spent:)

We've just got home from South Africa, having had a wonderful holiday. We booked our holiday through Virgin but Thomson's Africa were the company who took over on our arrival in Capetown. We did the 10 day Grande Garden Route which was absolutely wonderful and our guide was Irshaad Gaffoor (Ish to us). Honestly you couldn't meet a nicer guy,... More

We participated in an all day safari at Kruger National Park. Start was before sunrise (6:00 am) and ended after 4:00 pm. Our guide, Elvis, was very knowledgeable on the area and animals. Working with his team of three vehicles he position us into the perfect viewing location. While watching a few sedentary lions for a bit he noticed an... More

Brian was our tour guide for the day and was great. We went around the area of Cape Town to the south and eastern side. We got to learn from his experiences about the city and where they have been as a country. We got to see many different animals such as the baboons, ostriches, penguins (at the penguin colony),...

You'll get a great day tour of the Cape Town area and Peninsula. It's a good way to see a lot in a short amount of time. We had a great guide that had some great stories and jokes! The only downside is that you are moving quick, so you don't get a lot of time at any one place... More

My daughter and I booked a trip to Cape Town through Lion World Travel and Thompsons tour company is affiliated with them. We couldn't have been more pleased with our tour guide, Danie Theron, who introduced us to the beautiful Franschhoek Valley in South Africa's Cape Winelands. He was so kind, informative, and funny! Then, much to our delight, he... More

We used Thompson for two of our tours while in Cape Town, a 6 hour trip to wine country and a 1/2 day tour around the southern cape. Both were amazing! We had the same guide for both trips, Danie, and I was so impressed with him. He was easy to understand, knowlegeable, personable, and funny! He knew so much... More
