Joanna is a wealth of knowledge and amazing guide.
We originally visited Cape Town in May of 2017 and were so taken by the area and its beauty that we decided to return in 2018. The most positive experiences we had while in South Africa were with Joanna, who guided us during both of our trips. She has such a bright, beautiful personality that pairs wonderfully with the wealth of knowledge that she provides on tours. Her insight of local areas, cultural/historical knowledge, and understanding of current issues gave our trip a lot of educational value, all while showing us breathtaking views of Table Mountain, the West Coast tour, and the Peninsula! Thank you for the amazing experience Joanna! We look forward to seeing you next time we are in Cape Town!

Excellent hike, great conversation
I did a half-day hike with Joanna up to Table Mountain via the Skeleton Gorge route, which begins in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The whole experience was wonderful from start to finish. Joanna was easy to communicate with and super professional when organizing the hike, and really took the time to understand what I was looking for and then designing a hike that fit that description. The hike she took me on was through a beautiful varied terrain of indigenous forest, fynbos, and finally, the rocky top of the mountain. The route was more off the beaten path, which was really a nice treat; until we got to the top we saw few other hikers even though we went on a weekend. Joanna is a great conversationalist and I enjoyed chatting with her about my travels and appreciated all her tips for what to do and see in the area. She really went above and beyond, taking photos of me with her phone with the beautiful views of Cape Town in the background, editing them and then emailing them to me. Joanna has a lively, bright personality and is a joy to be around. I highly recommend her tours!

A fantastic, extremely knowledgeable local professional guide!
A fantastic, extremely knowledgeable local professional guide who made our 2 days tour of the Peninsula and the wine country an absolute delight and the highlight of our Cape Town visit. Born, raised and educated here, she brought her delightful and obvious enthusiasm with us to all our stops. We visited the not-so-obvious as well as the standards and for this we are extremely grateful. Thank you, Jo Jayne.

I highly recommend.
I highly recommend. We are frequent travelers and have much to compare to - Joanna is one of the best. She was able to gauge exactly what we wanted from the tour and modified the itinerary to best meet our interests. Her knowledge of Cape Town is very high. She also sequenced the tour to minimize wait times and maximize our time.

Fabulous First Time Visit
Having recently returned from my first holiday in Cape Town I can only say I can't wait to go back! We had an amazing time, saw so much of the Cape region and it was all thanks to Joanna. We had a busy itinerary that Jo had planned for us, but it was all completely flexible. It was wonderful to be collected after breakfast each morning, with a whole day of exploring ahead and being driven by a friendly, extremely knowledgeable guide. From a tour of the city itself and the coast line from Cape Town to the towns along False Bay, up to Hermanus, to a very thorough exploration of a number of fantastic vineyards in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, we had an incredible time! I thoroughly recommend Joanna and Capescape Tours if you want to make the most of your time in and around Cape Town.

Best honeymoon experience thanks to Joanna!
For two people who had never been to anywhere in Africa, we were extremely nervous about getting around and seeing everything we wanted to see. Since we were on our honeymoon, we also wanted that balance of exploration and relaxation. Joanna exceeded our every expectation! Punctual and extremely open to our thoughts and suggestions, Joanna made sure we had the most amazing honeymoon ever! Joanna even went out of her way to make sure I got to see picturesque views that were outside the normal tours. We really could go on and on but all you need to know is that we couldn't have been happier with our experience!

Wonderful time with Joanna
I went to South Africa on my own for a two week volunteer trip. As I had limited time outside of volunteering, I looked into a private customized tour with Joanna. We spent a full day touring the Cape Peninsula that involved going to various look out points at Cape of Good Hope and a short hike around the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. I had such a wonderful time that I booked a second tour with Joanna to visit the winelands. For both tours, Joanna did a great job creating itineraries based on what I wanted to do or what she thought I'd enjoy. She also has really in depth knowledge and history of South Africa which I really appreciated. Thank you again, Joanna!

Thanks again Jo, you were AWESOME!
My husband and I were in Cape Town for 3 days. We hired Joanna for our guide all 3 days. What a difference that made in our trip as she was everything we wanted and more. Young, enthusiastic, motivated, knowledgable, fun, and very friendly-the total package for a tour guide who I would now consider a friend. We did the Great White cage diving first and then she took us to Boulders Beach, followed by Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope (She even got us a nice seat at Two Oceans for an excellent lunch) then a scenic drive back home through Chapmans Peak. Even when told this was all not possible in a day, Joanna proved wrong hitting all our highpoints and it was very pleasant, not rushed at all. I would not have changed a thing. The second day she took us to three different vineyards which were excellent- some of her favorites and she even planned an awesome lunch with a view for us at a restaurant in Franschhoek. The last day we hiked up the back of Table Mountain with her! It was incredible! She got some awesome photos of us and told us more about Cape Town. The hike was one of the highlights of our trips. We then were able to stop at Camps Bay and hang on the beach for a little. All three nights she recommended incredible restaurants: Codfather, Carne, and Baia. We would love to come back even for the food!!!! We literally couldn't have asked for a better guide. She is excellent! We miss her already! When we come back or if we have friends headed her way- we will recommend her for sure! Thanks again Jo, you were AWESOME! Xo, The Iagulli's

It was truly a memorable day.
Joanna was our guide for two days in the wine country. We visited three wineries for tastings and had lunch both days at wonderful restaurants. It was truly a memorable day. Everything was so well-planned and she knew the area and the history quite well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and would request her again if we return to South Africa.

I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone wanting to visit the South African wine country.
Joanna was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable as a guide. She drove us in her own car, a nice, new, clean Honda Accord. She had everything carefully laid out in advance and the day passed so quickly it was difficult to believe when it was over. I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone wanting to visit the South African wine country.

Joanna was not only an excellent guide but fun to spend time with.
We had the pleasure of having Joanna spend three days with us touring all of the great things Cape Town has to offer. The Cape Highlights tour was thoroughly enjoyable and educational. We also did the Wine Tasting day trip and the Cape Town to Cape of Good Hope drive which was spectacular. Joanna was not only an excellent guide but fun to spend time with. I would highly recommend her for any of you planning a trip to beautiful Cape Town. She's maybe the best guide we have had in all of our travels.

Joanna is a very personable and knowledgeable guide and host
Joanna is a very personable and knowledgeable guide and host. This tour is great if you want to see the Cape penninnsula but see it more as a road trip and not a canned packaged day trip. The drive was very comfortable and the tour stops were all very interesting. We had lunch in a nice restaurant away from all the swarms of (other) tourists. Joanna was very flexible with the schedule and stops. Next time I'm in Cape town I would gladly do another one of her tours!

The rain stopped;passing clouds were above
The rain stopped;passing clouds were above. My group,13 teens and 3 adults(2 over 55),were skeptical about hiking,never mind going to the top of Table Mt. Joanna offered hiking options lasting 1-4 hours on the lower trails or hike up the gorge and turn around at any point. Up we went. Joanna kept us together and informed, stopping frequently for rest and decision making. We made it to the top AND hiked back down. Joanna is a skilled leader and safety conscious. I would hire her again.

We again wanted to thank your for 3 days of great touring
We again wanted to thank your for 3 days of great touring, eating and wine tasting in Cape Town. We have sung your praises to friends on the Silver Whisper and found that there was great disappointment with the ship's tours in Cape Town. Not only that, but many passengers get to Cape Town on a somewhat regular basis to board or leave a cruise. We've passed out your card to those that are interested and we'll be surprised if Mr and Mrs. Robert Hilton from the UK don't contact you about a November date. We're looking forward to seeing you again next year for 2 days April 4th and 5th. We are anticipating enjoying lots of Cape Town wine the rest of this year's cruise and we'll be thinking of you all these good times.

Just perfect!
First I did the Hoerikwaggo 4 day trail hike from Cape Town to Redhill with Jo and it was just perfect. Absolutely well organized! She is really taking care of everything. The only things I had to do were hiking, enjoying the amazing views in the mountains and the braai in the evenings. Also the West Coast Tour up to Langbaan with the stop in Darling (for a nice beer tasting) is great! I had a fantastic time! Luckily Jo offers a great variety of tours so I can/will book capescape again next time I am in SA!

An Excellent hike with professional and wonderful tour guide
Great hike: magnificent views across the bays, very nice and comfy lodging. Jo was an excellent tour guide for our group of friend (former students in denial of having reached middle age). She took us to all the nice spots along the way, keeping a pace that matched the group's fitness, making us put in some effort, while at the same time not overstressing.

Helped make our holiday very special..thanks Jo!
From start to finish Jo provided a 1st Class, professional, knowledgeable and above all friendly and fun experience. Jo aim's for a top end bespoke experience and she delivers. Nothing was a problem - when we wanted to change the agenda for the day or make a quick unplanned stop off, Jo was totally flexible. Jo is warm, engaging, professional and we really enjoyed her company - to the point where we asked her to join us for lunch on both days. We will stay in touch with Jo and have already started to think about a hiking trip for a few days next year. We have subsequently recommended Jo and have heard similarly great things. I wouldn't think twice about recommending Jo as you'll have a great experience.

We did a 4 day tour with a group of 9 long time friends. Jo and her partner Davy fit into the group after 30 seconds. Jo is an amazing guide, her love for the mountain and the outdoors is contagious and she is a fun person to spend time with. Davy is a great guy and a good bbq cook. I would recommend Jo to anyone who is looking for a great hiking experience in Cape Town.

Dear Joanna, Being our first time in South Africa we were interested in experiencing all the natural beauties as well as adventures. Thank you for being our driver and guide. You were beyond knowledgeable of South African history and kept us entertained with stories, amazing tour tracks and making sure everyone was having a good time.

We had the pleasure of Joanna's services for 2 exceptional days.
Dear Joanna, This was our first visit to Cape Town. We were on a cruise prior to Cape Town. We only had 3 days in Cape Town. We had the pleasure of Joanna's services for 2 exceptional days. Joanna is very accommodating and very knowledgeable. She planned 2 full days of awesome tours. Joanna provided us all of the beautiful & exiting highlights of Cape Town. Her vehicle accommodations were very comfortable for us & our 2 friends. It was very nice because she even thought of the little items, she had cold beverages and snacks for us. We did not have to wait in line because she had all of our tickets pre-purchased, because of her pre-planning we were able to cover more of the most beautiful city. I would highly recommend Joanna's service. We were extremely pleased with her prompt, friendly, organised and highly knowledgeable services.

Joanna,s Pennisula Day Trip Was Great!
We had a fantastic day.  Joanna is a wonderful guide and a pennisula native; she is knowledgable, energetic, prompt, and a lot of fun.   She tailored our private pennisula day trip to our desires, it was not a pre-canned itinerary.  We did a couple of great hikes in addition to visiting all the main attractions.  In fact, to ensure we could do everything in our one day, she arrived at our hotel earlier than normal to start the journey.   Each of us had a different highlight from the trip.  The 45 minute hike from Cape of Good Hope to Cape Point is particularly noteworthy.  We highly recommend Joanna and Capescape.  John, Mary Jane, Arnie and Annette
