ケープタウンでの1日半島ツアーを探していたところ、アランさんのこのツアーに出会いました。Emailでのやりとりの上でツアーに申し込みました。両親は英語がわからないため私が通訳をしましたが、アランさんはとても分かりやすい英語で案内してくれ、常に笑顔を絶やさず、我々家族にとって思い出に残る素晴らしいケープ半島での一日となりました。ツアー中も、途中で寄りたいお店や見たいスポットなどに柔軟に対応してくれました。個人ツアーなので、団体ツアーのように急がず好きなところを時間をかけて見れるため、大変おすすめです!アランさんは勉強家で大変知識があり、素晴らしいガイドでした。 I was looking for Cape Peninsula tour by trip advisor and fiinally made booking with Blue Monkey Tours. It was without doubt, best decision I made. Allan put all his effort to make the tour interesting and make the most of limited time! And...More
