Jacqui was very professional and made sure that our tour was even better than our expectation! Her guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We and another couple had him for 2 days and felt we were traveling with a friend. He also was able to talk about the Cape area and answered any and all questions easily! In fact, he... More

Jacqui was easy to work with in arranging exactly the kind of tour I wanted to have. It was a great combination of seeing the highlights that I was interested in, with the nice personal touch of a knowledgeable tour guide that was able to take me to some places off the beaten path. In addition to being a fantastic... More

Apologies for the late review, just found the business card in my suitcase & was remembering the brilliant day we had with Jacqui. She went over and above to give us a day to remember, nothing was too much trouble for her. We went to Table Mountain (queues were soooo long) & when we got to the top, she queued... More

Rod took me out to Cape Point and everything in between. He was very knowledgable and extremely fun to be around. We got to see everything from the Penguins to the lighthouse. We hiked and then had a lovely drive around Chapman's peak. I will definitely give Cape by Design a call when I go back!

We really enjoyed spending the day with Jacqui. We had been on a few tours as part of a cruise and had a few extra days in Cape Town to spend. Tours booked on cruises are crowded and frustratingly rushed. This day trip was a welcome break. It was wonderful to go at our own pace, and Jacqui allowed us... More

My Dad and I booked a few private tours with Jacqui in March 2013. She was wonderful, everything was customized the way we wanted it. We were able to explore a lot of the Cape Town area without needed to rent a car. My favorite was Cape Point and Boulders Beach area. I loved seeing the penguins. I also loved... More

Jacqui was prompt, polite, accommodating as she drove us on the winding coastal road to Hout Bay where our boys enjoyed the boat trip to see the seals on the rocks, getting washed off of the rocks and having a wonderful time. We went on to tour the Cape of Good Hope, stopping to enjoy a baboon family eating &... More

We recently spent 4 days in Cape Town and selected Cape by Design Tours for a trip to the Cape and a drive to the winelands.
