Cyprien was very knowledgeable and interesting. He shared a lot of history and answered all our questions with great care. I would have made the tour even longer to continue hearing his stories and see the city with him.

I had a great time with Cyprian! He gave me a lot of information about all the places we visited. It was a great experience, even though the history of cape town and south africa is really sad.
