The 4 of us booked Clive for an 8 day road trip to see Cape Argulus, Oudtshoorn (for the Meercats)Stellenbosch and Cape Town. As other reviewers have stated Clive is a fun, knowledgeable and personable guide. Clive was able to adapt our trip to suit our interests ( no sunset photography but lots of wildlife photography) and made sure that we had a fabulous time. His accommodation choices were excellent and we enjoyed sharing a great Brai with him as the masterchef at Cape Argulus. His restaurant choices were spot on. Clive also ensured that we stopped at all the great coffee spots and that we enjoyed the wildlife and beautiful vistas along the way. Towards the end of the trip it felt like we were travelling with a friend. We are now thinking about our next trip to Africa and how can we do another road trip with Clive!

Clive from The Cape Town Tour Guide took me and my three girlfriends on a 1/2 day tour around Cape town. We spent 1/2 the time on foot and 1/2 the time in Clive's car. He shared Cape Town's amazing history with us through stories and sightseeing. He was also a great picture taker! We taught him how to use boomerang on instagram, he was fun, personable and up for a good laugh. :) He was also open to answering any question we had about life in Cape Town. I'd totally recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get to learn more about Cape Town, it's history and the people who live here from a local. We also felt very safe with him which is very important in this city. Our tour with him was an unexpected surprise and I'm so happy we did it. We'll see you on the gram' Clive!

We visited Cape Town on our honeymoon for 4 days. Clive was the most amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and made everyday so interesting and fun. We fell in love with Cape Town and would recommend Clive to everyone!

Clive gave my husband and me a fantastic 2.5-day tour of Cape Town. We have used some of the most prestigious tour companies in the world, and I can honestly say that Clive is one of the best guides we have ever had. He is very enthusiastic and genuine and we enjoyed his company. He has a great sense of humor and was able to keep with us (we like having a good time). His timing was always early, in fact, he was at our hotel (The Silo) just in case our Helicopter transport driver didn't show up on time. Sure enough, the driver DID NOT show up, so Clive was there to get us over to our Heli-Tour without missing a beat! Talk about anticipating one's needs, this blew us away! In the evenings he would do research on spots I just mentioned I was interested in visiting. He printed out all of my interests, gave them to me in the morning, and then he created a wifi hotspot in his car so I could Google all of his spots and pick the ones that interested me most - talk about service and efficiency.
Clive also brings a great deal of knowledge, personal experience, and anecdotes to his tour. This was great because we definitely had a genuine experience, and his true passion for his city is contagious. In addition to being a fantastic guide, Clive has an immaculate Land Rover that zoomed us safely and comfortably all over Cape Town. We would rate him 10 stars if we could!

Clive gave us an extraordinary tour. His style was friendly and engaging. Clive has an excellent knowledge of the area and shared his knowledge with enthusiasm. Clive took steps to ensure that our tour was informative and exciting. We drove the beautiful Chapmans Peak route, hiked the trail from The Cape to the visitors centre, went to Simonstown and Kalk Bay for a wonderful lunch. Clive took us to the Botanical garden where is commentary was very informative. Clive gave us a great tour of highlights in Cape Town itself which we otherwise never have experienced on our own.
