SAFFA TOURS AUTHENTIC PRIVATE GUIDING REVIEWS
Absolutely brilliant trip to Cape Town and around the Western Cape with Josh and the Saffa team. Perfectly and thoughtfully organised, full of insight and fun. Could not recommend more!
Girlfriends and I had the most epic experience in and around Cape Town and I have to say a big part of that was no doubt down to the organisational skills and fun schedule created by Saffa Tours. Josh, the owner of the company really created a tailor made experience for us, and definitely went above and beyond your normal guide. As a local he has exceptional knowledge of the best spots in town for adventure, good food and more... I have to say I was sceptical about using a tour company to organise the trip as I usually plan my own holidays, but it really didn’t feel like organised fun, it just meant that we had someone with local insight to do all the hard work of planning, and to take us everywhere we needed to go. He was super flexible and it really enabled us to have a seamless jam packed adventure that suited us. He took such an active interest in our time that we became friends, and I will definitely miss Cape Town and the Saffa crew!
We used Saffa Tours as part of our honeymoon to South Africa. Josh guided us for 4 days on a custom itinerary.We're not great with words, but to put it short, Josh was epic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Well worth the cost of visiting in the Cape area where there are so many things to do. Lightyears ahead of what a larger tour group would be able to put together.From small details to adjusting the daily itinerary on the fly (last-minute surf lesson done by him), Josh made things happen.
Josh was our guide during our honeymoon earlier this year, and he planned the trip of a lifetime for us. Every single restaurant, hike, winery, etc. was perfectly tailored for us. Josh was extremely knowledgeable and professional but also just an awesome guy that we enjoyed being around. We seriously could not be happier with our entire time in South Africa because of Josh and his team. Do yourself a favor and use Josh at SAFFA TOURS! We can’t wait to get back!
I visited Cape Town for a week and decided to use Saffa Tours for three days to catch the sites and get a connected tour of the City. My only regret is not booking an entire week. Head guide Josh has unbridled knowledge about Cape Town and whatever you want to get out of the city will be made a reality by Saffa tours, tours are personalised and exciting. I really felt immersed in the city and I was able to visit several museums and art galleries around Cape Town as well as experiencing the beautiful wine estates of Constantia. It seemed as though whatever I felt like doing Josh was already planning. Josh is also a real genuine chap and it made exploring the city a whole lot more fun exploring with a friendly, enthusiastic guide who is also extremely knowledgeable and prepared. Thanks to Josh and Saffa tours my Cape Town visit was one of the most enjoyable and stress free visits to any city. I really can't recommend Saffa tours enough.
Saffa tours offers incredible, customized adventure tours across Southern Africa to suit you needs. Josh is a knowledge guide with an infectious energy and the inside track on so many hidden gems! Couldn't recommend this enough!
The best people bring out the best in their country!
Travelled 40 different countries and been on endless tours around the globe and it’s easy for me to say saffa tours are one of the best. After some amazing tours in and around capetown it’s safe to say josh knows his country and it’s history very well and not only will you learn a lot, his laid back personality makes your trip one of a kind. Can highly recommend this guy for anyone visiting capetown.
I have travelled all over the world, and I now live in Cape Town. It was a really incredible and eye opening experience going on a tour around my home. I learnt so much I had never even considered and was shown such beautiful hidden gems away from the hoards of tourists and cameras. Josh has a really approachable, easy going personality and he makes you feel at home rather than a tourist on one of his tours. The food was amazing, conversation intriguing and a brilliant day all around!
Josh was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour group. We went around the areas of the cape of good hope and heard about the early days and history. He was a wonderfful host and very courteous.
We were in Cape Town for the weekend and decided to use a personal tour company to host us. We had heard of Saffa through friends and family and were fortunate to get a booking. We started with an early morning hike along a route called the pipeline walk. What a spectacular view of Camps Bay with the beauty and freshness of the mountain and it’s lovely flowers. It was so therapeutic especially with all Josh’s stories and knowledge of the Cape. We loved listening to him and he even brought us a “mini tea” for a break along our hike. We had breakfast at a quaint coffee shop before we proceeded to learn more about the history and visit the sites of the wonderful Cape. The cherry on the top being sundowners on the west cost, beautifully laid out by Josh, we tasted some of the finest gins Cape Town produces. The following day we ventured out to the wine farms in Franschoek, this was such a treat again being brought up to date with Josh’s endless knowledge of the Cape in all respects. We went to Fairview farm for a tasting such a treat, then to Colmant for champagne tasting, my absolute favorite. We then headed up the hill to beautiful Pierre jourdan estate for lunch and a trip around their cellar. This was one of the finest meals I have had in a long time. You must do the deserts!! Fine dining at it best!! With our tummies full and minds full of memories but relaxed we headed back. We will most definitely book with Josh and Saffa tours next time to continue our adventure of the magnificent Cape. Thank you Josh for such a beautiful evening and two days and will see you soon for more adventure !!
We had a fantastic day with Josh! He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to all the highlights, Chapman's Peak Drive, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point, Boulder's Beach and Muizenburg Beach. Gave us interesting information and lots of history along the way and hiked with us to the best penguin viewing on Boulder's Beach. He even spotted an octopus amongst the rocks! Josh recommended a Table Mountain hike and the summer concert at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, which was the perfect ending to our South African Adventure. I would highly recommend Saffa Tours for the perfect Cape Town experience!
I am a South African but I've realized that I don't travel around my own country enough. Every time I go to Cape Town I usually do the usual sites and attractions but this time I thought I'd venture beyond the norm and experience the Weskus! Josh took me on an incredible adventure up the West Coast and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to experience something unique and scenic. I learned about the historic battle of Blaauwberg, saw the best view of Table Mountain, ate lunch overlooking the somewhat tropical Langebaan Lagoon and the West Coast National Park. Unfortunately it was not flower season but it was still awesome! Josh was a very authentic and knowledgeable guide and we shared loads of laughs! Thanks Josh and Saffa Tours!
To put it short, this trip absolutely exceeded my expectations: I learned how to stand on a surfboard and don't fall of in just two days - thanks Josh for your persistence and motivation! I met amazing people of all ages and we had deep conversations, shared amazing stories and obviously had a great laugh together - thanks to Tom, Jonathan, Bella, Josh, Camy, Justin and Alix! I was served the best food I had in a longer time - thanks to Bella's amazing cooking skills! I absolutely enjoyed the mix of different yoga styles - there is nothing better to calm your mind and to relax your body after a strenuous session of surfing! So overall, I can highly recommend Saffa Tours!
Really enjoyed meeting new, like-minded people via saffa tours. Lots of fun & would defos recommend!
Top notch lad! And to me this is an experience of a lifetime and a must do for any outdoor enthusiast !
One of the best experiences I’ve had in Southern Africa! Literally couldn’t of asked for more from our guide
