Together with Joanna we designed - easily via e-mail - a half day trek along the eastern coast of Cape Point National Park. She accommodated our requests perfectly and simultaneously she proposed good ideas that made sure we got a fantastic hiking.

My wife and I spent the day with Joanna as she showed us the sights of the Cape peninsula. She was excellent, conveying interesting local knowledge (having been brought up on a farm on the peninsula) and really taking good care of us. Thoroughly recommended.
