Doug, Andy and Thanos arrived in Cape Town in the early hours of the morning so we only started our tour at 11AM. We all first got acquainted at the Commodore Hotel and we then started our tour by travelling up Signal Hill so as to orientate ourselves from a high point above the city.

After our visit to Signal Hill we travelled through the city of Cape Town enjoying many of its hidden secrets.


We stopped in at Cafe Paradiso where we had a light Mezze lunch


We travelled through the Kloofnek area and stopped to take this picture of the threesome in front of Camps Bay & the 12 Apostles.


We travelled through the Sea Point and Green Point area and made our way to the aquarium so as to be in time to see the predator tank inhabitants being fed.

After our visit to the aquarium we walked over to Ferrymans where we enjoyed some time together on the outside patio area of the waterfront pub. 

This day was too short as far as I was concerned as Doug, Andy and Thanos were wonderful to travel with. Alas time was not on our side. All in all I had a great day with three fantastic guys in wonderful Cape Town weather.

Thanks a ton Doug, Andy & Thanos

Dear Selwyn,

Apologies for the late reply - this is just a short note to thank you very
much for a great tour in Cape Town : your professionalism is unbelievable.
As I told you, you became our friend even after only a few hours together.
Our overseas guests were extremely impressed and I learned things that I
could not manage to learn even after 10 years in this wonderful city. 

I am sure that we will see each other again 

Thanks again

Keep well and keep up your enthusiastic work.
