My family took the full day photography tour of Cape Point and we got to do and see SO much! Greg was a great tour guide and had good tips for improving our photos and trying new techniques, as well as knowledge about the history of Cape Town and South Africa.

Greg was the perfect guide for our day exploring Cape Town and the Peninsular. Amazingly helpful and responsive with itinerary that was completely personalised Greg took us to some amazing spots from the well known to more off beat and far more than we would have seen by ourselves. Greg's historical and political knowledge, his deep understanding of the flora... More

I'm a professional photographer and toured Cape Town with Greg early December 2016. Greg's intimate knowledge of the town and surrounding areas was invaluable, and I managed to get great shots throughout the day. While booking the tour we discussed what I was after, and what I would like to skip and Greg tailored the day based on that and... More

If you like photography, this is the best way to discover Cape Town. Greg knows the local areas very well, he's a talented photographer and I've learned more about Cape Town on my tour with Greg than on any of the organized tours of the Cape. Not to mention coming back with incredible photographs.
