“Perfect way to get familiar with the area!”

We did the trip around Cape Point and would never have been able to see so much on our own. It was perfect getting picked up from our accommodation and then to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Mac is a great guide! Easy going, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend that you do this trip if you are unfamiliar with the area, otherwise it would be tiring and you are bound to miss out on a lot of cool stuff.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have an afternoon with Mac in Cape Town, touring Cape Point and many other spots along the way. We fit a lot in a short time and discovered so much about the glorious city of Cape Town. Mac is friendly, polite, knowledgable and very easy going. He really cares about what he does and it shows. He took some great pictures for us and really the tour was just wonderful!! Thanks Mac : )

Mac was the perfect gentleman from start when he came to us during hotel breakfast, helping us load luggage to car, and became our friend when we bade farewell (for now) 4 days later.

We explored many fun places along the Cape - riding ostriches, zip lining, watching meerkat families at dawn and so much more!

He was endearing with his easygoing demeanour and Scottish humour. You could ask him anything anytime and conversations were always interesting and informative.

Mac was attentive to detail eg he remembered we liked fresh juices and oysters and he made an effort to fit them in. Trust him with his years of experience, to maximise your time on road trip and make it your smoothest holiday!

My mates and I felt comfy with him and thoroughly enjoyed every bit! We will love to travel with Mac again 🙂

I have been on various wine tours and city tours in the last few years but this one tops them all. Having a private tour with Mac is like having a day trip with your own family.

You will be with someone who knows Cape Town and area and you can see the love he has for his city.
When you have a tour with Mac you can expect to be with someone who is interested in what you want to see and will adjust your tour to please you.

You will join someone who will not rush you.. he will go at your pace.

You are with a person who will suggest other tours and the best operators to see.
In other words I just can't say enough about Cape Tours With Mac..other than when I bring my husband to Cape Town, Mac is the first person I will call.

“Private wine tour with mac is a must do!”

We did a private wine tour with mac yesterday and it was absolutely amazing! I could not fault one single thing. Mac is extremely knowledgeable and can tell you anything you would like to know. He has a nice big comfy van as well and came with an itinerary to start with but was easy to change to suit our preferences. We started with a wine and cheese tasting then onto a chocolate tasting which was something different. After that we had 1 more wine tasting then moved to the next winery for lunch which we enjoyed with mac as well. He is an extremely kind and easy going person who you would want to invite to have lunch with you! After lunch and a few wines we moved to another winery and at around 430 when we finished there we had expected that this would be the end of our tour but mac suggested he knew of one more place that would still be opened and we carried onto there before heading home around 6-630. At no point did we feel rushed and had an absolutely amazing day. I would highly recommend cape tours with mac to anyone!
