We have just completed our 4th trip with Dominic and as usual it lived up to all expectations. Every time we've booked, Dom has come up with something which really fits our requirements and adds to our overall appreciation of the Cape and of its flora and fauna (what he doesn't know about the Cape isn't worth knowing).

From the moment we arranged our trek with Dominic we felt confident that the day would be worthwhile and he certainly disappoint! He advised us on the best way to spend our morning with him and it proved to be perfect for us and the highlight of our trip on this occasion. His knowledge and style of delivery is so... More

Dominic was a great guide! There were two of us that wanted help hiking up Table Mountain and he was prompt with emailing to help us decide the best course for our day! He is very knowledgeable with the history and plants of the area, and makes a great tea! He does provide some water and snacks, but if it's... More

We had a fantastic experience hiking with Dominic on Jan-16 2017. We found him by recommendation from another couple we met during our vacation in South Africa. As winds were 40-45 km/h, the cable car was closed, Dominic suggested several plan B's that provided shelter. We decided on a hike on the backside of Table Mountain, which turned out being... More

My family and I had the most wonderful day hiking up and down table mountain. Dominik was an brilliant tour guide; we particularly enjoyed his plentiful supply of statistics about the flora and fauna of Cape Town! He also provided a 5 star picnic lunch in a lovely location. Definitely one of our best experiences in Cape Town, thank you... More

I found Dominic, aka The Fynbos Guy, several months ago through other people's positive reviews on TripAdvisor. He was prompt and helpful in answering email enquiries, and so I booked a full day hike up Table Mountain with him. I happen to be here in Cape Town at the busiest time of year, but with Dominic's knowledge of the mountain,... More

I didn't get the pleasure of doing a tour with Dominic, because he was fully booked the week that I was in Cape Town, but that didn't stop him from Helping guide me on how to do our hike to Table Mountain and answer my (multiple) inquiries via text. For me, that's a sign of a guy that loves what... More

Dominic, the Fynbos Guy guided us on a wonderfully informative and fascinating walk along the beach and into the interior of the Cape of Good Hope. Beautiful and deserted area with so much to look at.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of having Dominic aka The Fynbos Guy guide us on a full day hike up the Western side of Table Mountain. We are both avid hikers and when I was planning our trip to South Africa I really wanted to have Table Mountain be a part of it. With a bit of... More

After many emails and rearranging our itinerary several times we went with Dominic to Hout Bay to see the seals, Boulders Beach for a picnic lunch with the penguins, a drive thru the Silverman Mountains and a hike on Table Mountain. He was outstanding in every aspect of the tour. His knowledge of the flora and fauna of S Africa... More
