What a wonderful time spent with Rupesh, Paul and Nancie on our culinary and history tour today in beautiful downtown Cape Town. We were able to experience the best of authentic foods and local wines and gins. Rupesh is a delight and very knowledgeable and entertaining. What a great way to experience the taste of Cape Town and great value for your money. Thanks Rupesh for treating us so special. We will never forget our great experience. Thanks, Nancie and Judy from Edmonton. Alberta, Canada.

We had a fantastic time on this terrific tour. Rupesh is a really great guy and has carefully thought out the tour to include so many different tastes and experiences. He is a really interesting guide and has a great sense of humour. The day left us with so many memories. We hope to return to Cape Town one day when this terrible time in the world has passed and we would love to spend time again with Rupesh some time in the future.

This food tour was fantastic! We went to 9 different stops and had so many different foods, wines, brandies, and gins. The whole time, we learned the history behind the city but also how that history heavily impacted the types and flavors of food in the city today. Along the way, we learned about tons of other local bars and restaurants, outside of the ones we were specifically going to. This was hands down the best food tour we’ve ever done and we’d recommend this to anyone!
