    We have traveled the world and our experience with Clive was one of our most exceptional memories. He has deep insight into the physical beauty as well as the intellectual and political history of south africa. He was also charming and funny. Our time together felt individualized to our interests and not packaged. He is flexible, relaxed and highly efficient. He really was one of the most outstanding guides we have spent time with and he made our trip special and unique. we can not recommend him highly enough!

    Clive was the perfect guide...professional and thoroughly knowledgeable about a wide range of pertinent topics. He is an ideal teacher and leader to unfold the unique features of the Capetown area. We give Clive our highest recommendation for anyone looking for personalized touring.

    Just perfect!!!

    Clive was not just the perfect tour guide - absolutely well prepared and experienced. It was a pleasure to be with him as a warm hearted and humorous person. What we really enjoyed: The trip was absolutely taylor-made and at any time he was open for a flexible handling. So one afternoon we decided to do an early morning hike before sunset and the next morning we have been up the hill in absolute darkness to have breakfast at the peak during sunset. An unforgettable experience!!! Clive made also perfect recommendations for restaurants in top quality. We will definitely come back to Capetown and definitely ask Clive for an unforgettable tour guidance again!

    Solo first time visitor to Cape Town so it worked well with me to have a guide showing me the city on the first day , gave me the confidence to explore the city and region on my terms for this trip and future visits.

    Thanks again Clive it was enjoyable having a relaxed companion who also on a very hot day didnt mind sharing a cold frothy!

    Well done

    We visited Cape Town & the western Cape in Nov 11. We needed a guide and my wife came across Clive's site just through using google. This was the best stroke of luck we could ever had wished for. Our 1st trip with clive was so good(cape point) that we actually changed our plans and booked Clive for a second tour(Champange tasting in Franschhoek area).

    Clive is happy to come up with a plan for you, but is quite open to amend at the last second if there is something you want to do or see. So don't be afraid and suggest something as this is why a private tour guide works so well. You will travel in luxury, comfort and with one of the most friendly of people you will ever meet.

    Clive's knowledge is quite diverse from history, food, wine and just general issues that occur in the world everyday. You will not be disappointed when booking Clive, so if u were unsure if to book or not before reading this review then please don't waste your money on someone else. Book Clive now!

    We only hope Clive is still in the industry the next time we are the Western Cape region or South Afrcia in general as we we book him without out a seconds thought.

    Best regards,

    David & Sarah(London)

    We were recommended to Clive by our son's partner and found Clive and Godfrey to be excellent tour guides. We had an amazing day in the township with Godfrey and a fantastic day touring the Stellenbosch wineries with Clive. If it wasn't for Clive informing us we would have gone to Zambia and Zimbabwe without our Yellow Fever vaccination and so he saved us huge grief on our return, thank you Clive. Highly recommended.

    We just returned from a month long trip to Botswana and South Africa. If there was only one word to describe you, it would be OUTSTANDING. I only wish we had more than the four days with you. Thanks for your knowledge on everything we wanted to know. And when I have a beer next time I will always remember the township you took us too. That memory will never leave us. Thanks for all the memories. We will be back.........

    Dave and Debbie Brodie (Thursday, 10 March 2011 10:15)

    Thank you so much Clive for the outstanding 3 1/2 days you have given us. One of the highlights for us was the township tour with Godfrey. It will never leave our minds and we would recommend this tour highly. We loved the winery you took us to this morning. Thanks for being such a good host and giving us such a great insight about your country. Your recommendations for restaurants have been great! I would highly recommend Clive to anyone reading his site. - from rainy but beautiful Campbell River BC Canada

    If I had one word to describe the Cape Winelands tour = phenomenal. I had booked this trip after reading about it on their website. We were in a group of 8 traveling from around the world to participate in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. We wanted to experience the wine country of what South Africa had to offer & the tour captured it beyond our expectations! Clive was professional, very knowledgeable & best of all a really cool guy! We had a blast & I would highly recommend it to everyone.

    Having Googled Clive to find him, we were a little nervous about our visit together, although his website was very reassuring. We shouldn’t have worried. From the time he picked us up at the airport after 11PM one night, until he left us 3 days later, nothing could have been better. Clive is charming and knowledgeable, and he was very perceptive in discerning our wants and needs. He designed our time together based on what we had told him in our communications, and was very flexible in making changes as we went along. He directed us to good restaurants, and made reservations for us. Clive’s knowledge of South Africa in general and the Cape Town area in particular is extensive, so we not only saw wonderful things, we also learned a lot. And, in the process, we had a lot of fun. We will recommend him to any of our friends, and hope this recommendation will also be helpful to online readers. We could tell that, regardless of your age or interests, Clive can design an excellent program for you.

    We wanted to thank you again for the incredible experience we had in Cape Town and Knysna. We had very high expectations for a terrific trip, and our experience exceeded those expectations. Even though we had a wide range of ages (8-79) and interests, you made the trip interesting, fun and a great learning experience for everyone. We felt very much at home, even though we were very far from home. We hope that our paths cross again.
    All the best,

    Hi Clive,

    After a very long trip, we're home , finally. I am at job now and trying to get used to life here. I'd like to thank you for your gentility and nice guidance during our tour in Cape Town. It was very nice time for me. I've been in many places in the world and I've never felt like that. Cape Town really impressed me. It made me feel as if I was somebody else far from my realities. It is very long way but maybe one day , with my kids, I'd like to go again.

    Thanks a lot for everything. Take care of you.
    I'll miss Cape Town!

Clive's knowledge of CapeTown and of South African culture and history made the trip both enjoyable and very educational. Clive brings an excellent mix of energy, professionalism and experience to his work. His perspectives on virtually any topic we discussed provided a fascinating dimension to our experience.

    Hi Clive

    First, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the most memorable experiences of any trip that we have taken. You were the consummate professional with extraordinary conflict resolution skills and a fabulous sense of humor mixed in. We cannot thank you enough for the energy, knowledge and fun that you injected into your efforts to make our trip so special.

    There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t sing your praises and share our terrific tales with our friends and reminisce ourselves.

    We really missed you in Johannesburg, Shana and I kept calling our guide Clive! He was very good but when you’ve had the best, no one else can make the mark.

    Love to you

    Judi and Bobby

    I can vouch for Clive De Bryne, I see he has already posted a message, Clive was our guide in Cape Town early this year (March) during our fantastic 3 week trip to Southern Africa!

    Clive's knowledge of Cape Town and of South African culture and history made the trip both enjoyable and very educational. Clive brings an excellent mix of energy, professionalism and experience to his work. His perspectives on virtually any topic we discussed provided a fascinating dimension to our experience. If you head to South Africa, get in touch with Clive.
    His telephone number is 0733084745.

    We also visited a great game park called Phinda, I highly recommend it!
