Hello, Capetown World, Our (Walking) Tour with Michael could not have been better - Michael is an authentic, sympathic guide with very interesting information about the things we were meant to visit. Furthermore, he told us highly interesting facts that I would describe as "insights" from a perspective a little bit "out of the box". We loved the (walking) experience and will definitely repeat it.. .Thanks for this lovely afternoon, Michael :)
