Allie is the best! He knows everyone and everything in Cape Town. He is super flexible while always giving great guidance and advice on how to spend our limited time in the Cape. He loves showing off his city and it shows in how he interacts with his clients and all the people in the industry. No matter what we asked, he had an answer or knew a guy who had the answer. At every stop, Allie had called ahead to make sure we had the best experience whether it was shorter lines or great seats at winery or a restaurant. He instantly became our friend who knew everything and was willing to share. I wish there was an Allie in my hometown and everywhere I will travel.

We booked Mr. Allie for 2 tours & found him to be a fabulous tour guide. As he said he is as easy as a bunge cord. He was totally responsive to our every request. Took us to wonderful places & always got us the best table in the restaurant. Extremely entertaining & made our tours not only informative but also so much fun. Got us great bargains on items we purchased. Highly highly recommend. Forgot to mention how warm he is.

Our two days with Allie were amazing. He was smart, funny, kind, responsive, warm and as flexible as a bungee chord! And everyone knows his name so that meant great service and special treatment for us. He showed us all the highlights - and low lights - in and around the Cape and surprised us around every corner. He made reservations at excellent restaurants and reserved us the best tables. Allie helped us find and negotiate great purchases, and snoozed extras for us. And he’s a great and self-motivated photographer. We highly recommend him for one day to as long as you are in Cape Town.

We did a full day tour with Mr. Allie and what an amazing day we had. We went to the cheetah sanctuary, boulders bay, cape point, cape of good hope and all these hidden gem stops Mr.Allie surprised us with on the way. He is so knowledgeable and very patient... he makes you feel like this is truly your holiday as he goes at his clients pace.

Mr. Allie is highly respected in Cape Town as an authorised tour guide and knows everyone it seems... he is so pleasant. We met him today as our tour guide but have now gained a friend who we will continue recommending to others.

Wanted to drive and experience the garden route with my family. Got referred to Mr Ridwaan Allie. The best referral and experienced tour guide one could ask for. Nothing is impossible for this guide. Very knowledgeable, connected and a pleasure to be with on tour. Arranged EVERYTHING for us and made the experiences memorable for us and our children. This guy is like a Superman Guide! Makes sure that his clients are well taken care of and are kept safe and happy. Brilliant service and a pleasant and happy go lucky gentleman
Would not hesitate to recommend him for any tour anywhere in the Westrrn Province.

Thank you Mr Allie for the best time and tour from 2016 into the New Year. Will definitely do the tour with you again. This time we will set aside more time for more Fun and Adventure.

Thanks from the Tayob Family.

We had a fantastic time with Mr. Allie during our trip to Cape Town and Franschhoek in June this year. He helped us plan our itinerary for the tour and very patiently explained the places we could visit and things we could do. He was super flexible also made sure that we included the “must do’s” we had on our list including eating fish and chips at Kalk Bay! Mr. Allie is not only friendly, entertaining and fun but he is also incredibly knowledgeable on South Africa, Cape Town and its history. Mr. Allie is also incredibly hooked up and knew someone almost everywhere we went! Did I mention that his van is fully equipped with Wi-Fi and chargers for your phone? Well it is.

We would recommend Mr. Allie to anyone who wants to enjoy a comfortable and tailored tour of Cape Town.

Thank you, Mr. Allie, for a wonderful time in Cape Town! We look forward to returning and seeing you again!

We were two families traveling together in South Africa in May 2016 and getting Allie Bhai to guide us in and around Cape Town was the best decision we made! Allie Bhai is extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and most importantly, kept insisting that it's OUR trip so was very flexible to adjust any random requests we made during the trip. Kids loved him as well and missed him in the remaining half of our trip when he did not accompany us.

There are many things to be noted but I will highlight a few:

1) Knows virtually every person in and around Cape Town tourist destinations, so getting help is easy
2) Genuinely cares about his customers and treats them as his family members - really!!
3) WiFi connectivity in vehicle is a nice touch

He even helped us getting a discounted rental vehicle in the latter half of our trip when he was not accompanying us. Very helpful!

Thank you Allie Bhai for great memories of our trip.
