Best Discover Scuba Diver experience!
"My wife and I did the discover scuba dive experience with Kobus in Long beach in Simon’s Town. He made us feel at ease with the gear and what we were doing, we went 6 meters deep and practised the basic skills needed for this experience. He was very patient with us as it is really really hard work to deal with to inexperienced people underwater and he did it the best i could imagine, my wife tended to float and he was with her all the time, calming her down and helping her get the right breathing to stay down and she loved it! We even saw an octopus and three puffadder shysharks!. I would definitively recommend him to any of my friends who are scuba divers or anybody who wants to try the experience coming to Cape Town! Thank you so much Kobus!"EduardoAbout local KobusCape Town, October 2023
Pleasent hike to The Table Mountain
"Veliswa made hike to Table Mountain unforgettable. She is a nice person hiking with, and we reached the top in nice weather and pleasent pace."Jan ÅkeAbout local VeliswaCape Town, September 2022
The most genuine experience available in Cape Town!!
"To my cooking host for today, Parinita, the always smiling and supremely talented cook (all done by sight and taste - no recipes or measurements). I truly thank both yourself and Dev for inviting me into your home for the day. Was a true highlight, and really did feel like my home away from home. Four course South African traditional Indian home cooked meal and class with Parinita today. A truly authentic and must do experience when visiting Cape Town. Highly recommended by this little foodie!"MeganAbout local ParinitaCape Town, November 2019
Table Mountain Climb
"Veli was great and did her best to keep our spirits up as the weather closed in. Unfortunately it wasn't safe enough to complete the hike, but I look forward to my next CT trip to hook up with her again and finish it!"DanAbout local VeliswaCape Town, September 2019
"We had the best time out in the sea exploring the kelp forest. It genuinely was a highlight of our trip. Kobus and Jan made everything very straightforward, safe and easy and trust me it’s something you really wanna do on your next trip! "FrancoAbout local KobusCape Town, March 2022
Incredible Indian Meal
"Parinita was a wonderful hostess in every way! She was friendly, informative and fun in her approach. Everything was well organised and we each got a chance to try our skills that she taught us. The meal was delicious and so much to eat! She made my birthday extra special by having a cake with sparklers, sharing her special thoughts on lighting candles rather than blowing them out as their family tradition."CaroleAbout local ParinitaCape Town, December 2020
The Hike up Table Mountain
"Veli was amazing... she made sure our hike was done safely and effectively. This hike is extremely intense. If you are not in good shape, please reconsider. "ReggieAbout local VeliswaCape Town, September 2019
Table mountain hike
"We had the good fortune of meeting Veli on a hike up Table Mountain The weather did not cooperate for us. It was foggy and the ground was a little slippery. However, she was a fantastic guide for us. The group included our three children aged 10, 12 and 16 years old. She was patient and was focused on our safety and enjoyment. Our time was limited and we only made it up half the mountain. However, she always stayed with the slowest member of our group assuring our safety. We really enjoyed our hike. We wished we had more time. Veli was wonderful and we highly recommend her."NehaAbout local VeliswaCape Town, August 2019
Table Mountain Hike
"Even though we had absolutely no visibility, I had a great hike up up Table Mountain with Veliswa! She sacrificed part of her daughter’s birthday to come guide this hike. I truly appreciate her effort in this and looking out for my safety. "AndreaAbout local VeliswaCape Town, May 2019
Cape Town From the Water: Snorkeling & Penguins
"Kobus was a wonderful host. It felt like we were meeting up with an old friend to explore the waters. He knew a lot about the villages of the Cape, and we had a great time snorkeling with him. It was the perfect tour for our trip around the peninsula."GeoffAbout local KobusCape Town, February 2019
