Tour Reviews

    My wife and I had a lovely, relaxing and safe time during our time in Cape Town. Greg immediately put us at ease as he conducted the Cape point tour, V&A evening tour, City walking tour and Township tour. Greg provided photography expertise/guidance as well as a commentary on history and facts about the locations we visited. We customised some elements which made for an enjoyable, relaxed and informtaive series of tours. The township tour was a particular highlight which was relaxed and one we would recommend to others. When we visit again, we would hope to catch up with  Greg again. We would definitely recommend Greg to others. He also knows some great coffee/cake shops!

    Greg guided me around Cape Town and the peninsula for two and a half days.  It was as much a full-blown course on photography as well as a tour.  Unlike photographers who merely dabble in being guides, or guides who merely dabble in photography, Greg is a both a master photographer and a legit tour guide.   I would recommend him to photographers of all levels, as well as non-photographers just interested in sites, history, art, and people.  

  • Robert

    What a fantastic morning spent with Greg, exploring the inner City.

    Besides being a really nice character, his knowledge of the City, the People and photography advise was World Class.

    I would highly recommend this tour to locals and visitors to the City. 

  • Mireille

    The recent Cederberg weekend with Greg was yet another of the wonderful photographical tours organised by Greg. His careful planning and choice of locations is always very interesting and challenging. These tours have been great fun and are very informative as he generously shares his knowledge of photography, flora and fauna and the historical and geographical features of the area. Greg has a very relaxed style and a good sense of humour. He is observant and helpful and sensitive to the needs of each member of the group at the same time as keeping the group’s needs in mind. His enthusiasm is always so contagious and encouraging.

  • Lisbet

    Amazing weekend away exploring the remote Cederberg area. Well organized photographic tour by our guide Greg, Greg is always ready to give photographic advice on all levels and with a good sense of humor. Have done many tours with Greg over the years, all affordable trips with great groups of people, all ages, different backgrounds, and nationalities, but all with the same photographic interest that it should all be fun and having a great time together

  • Chelna

    I had a lovely weekend in the Cederberg with Greg as a guide and a lovely group of people. The atmosphere was always easy going,with lots of bantering. Greg has a calm manner of handling people from all ages and always willing to help without loosing sight of the group, adapting as the days developed I have learned so many things in a fun way. I cannot wait to join another excursion with him

  • Leon

    Fantastic weekend trip through the Cederberg. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable, the group terrific. We learned a lot, laughed a lot and got some great shots along the way.

  • Robert

    We wanted a Cape Town tour and some advice on photography. Other than insisting we meet at 5AM to see sunrise everything was excellent. He had an itinerary planned out so we would see the city with the light in the best location. He is easy going and very helpful. We ended up inviting him to dinner when our cruise returned in 2 weeks.

  • Daniel

    We hired Greg for a week in December 2019. He is extremely patient and friendly. There was never an awkward moment.He picked us up from the airport and every morning thereafter. He took us around to different spots we would never have thought to go on our own. He is very well informed and explained things to give us a better contextual understanding of what we were doing that day.I also recommend Greg for any first timers to CT because he’ll make sure you’re traveling safely. I really felt as though we were taken care of the whole trip.An added bonus is that he’s a professional photographer. He will take pictures throughout the trip and share them with you at the end. The pictures were amazing and so was our time spent together. This was the vacation of a lifetime and I will never forget it thanks to his assistance.Thank you Greg!

  • Andy

    We hired Greg for two guided hikes while we were in Cape Town, and this turned out to be the highlight of the trip!  Instantly we felt at ease with Greg and enjoyed his company.  We have had guides in other countries but none come close to Greg's professionalism.   His knoledge of the local area, hazards, trails, plant and wildlife are almost endless.

    We are returning to South Aftrica soon and we will absolutly be using Greg for some more guides hikes!

  • Callie

    Had a great time exploring the best of Cape Town with Greg. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and easy to get along with. He is a very experienced photographer and a great teacher. He was also very flexible and accommodating, and we ended up covering a lot of ground in a day, allowing me to get to the most iconic spots in Cape Town. Thanks for a fantastic day!

  • Steven

    Great guide and very knowledgeable.  He specializes in photography and we were a mixed group.  

  • Esen

    I had Greg for a bit of sightseeing tour in cape town as well as around cape town over 1.5 days. His knowledge of the area is excellent - knows all the good spots for photography. In addition, he made great recommendations for lunch and dinner options - as well as the perfect coffee shop in Cape Town. 

    If you are in the area and looking for a guide for sightseeing, I highly recommend Greg.

  • Roger

    We took an extra day out in Cape Town and thought we would hire a local photographer to cover some of the places we haven't seen on our Tour or to spend some more time at places we had enjoyed. Frankly booking online you never know whether you will be happy with the outcome. As it was we were delighted with the outcome. Firstly we have to say that Greg was a sincere, likeable, patient and knowledgeable chap. We had been stuck in our ways with AV and Greg's first action was to move us over Manual and then experiment either side of the exposure to produce images that we would normally see with AV. It was a learning curve - I have to admit that the result was increased poor images but then some that were startling with both underexposed and over exposed backgrounds. That apart we wanted to see some places and Greg kindly drove around to some viewpoints that stretched between Simonstown and the Botanical Gardens. 

    We came away with some interesting images that were gained in a short time. More than that it revived our interest in exploring our photography and the way we will proceed in the future. Would happily hire Greg again - he's the best.

  • Oliver

    I went on a 6 day private tour with Greg which I could not have been happier with! Greg is professioanl, trustwothy and exceptioanlly easy to get along with.  Be it hiking for 5 hours up and over table mountain, to sipping delicious hot chocolate by an open fire, Greg has a plethora of options to make your time in South Africa a truly unforgetable one! Greg has fantastic historical and personal stories, I simply could not recommend him high enough! Thank you Greg! 

  • Christopher

    I took a tour with Greg back in September in Cape Town. I would recommend him highly.

    He is a really top guy and photographer. Really easy to get on with and made the tour a lot of fun whilst travelling around the Cape Town area. The locations we went to were excellent and I learned some great tips and really appreciate his help - thanks Greg!!

  • Matt

    Greg and I met just before dawn and set out for a day of sightseeing and photography. It was a wonderful day filled with great spots and amazing conversation. It felt like hangout with a long lost friend. Greg is an incredible guide and great photorgapher. I am looking forward to my next trip.

  • Robert

    My Dad, aunt and I all went on half day tour of Cape Town starting just before sunrise with Greg.  Greg was fantastic, he was great at explaining the features of the camera to my Dad and Aunt and unlocking functions in my DSLR I didn't know about, giving us all a lesson in photography as well as a really informative tour about the city and the Cape.    We went on the tour on our first morning in Cape Town and he tailored it to see what we wanted making it a really great way to start our holiday in South Africa,

  • Ann

    I went on a Photography Tour of the Cape Peninsula and a Photo Walk in the City with Greg. Cape Town always feels a bit like home to me, as I spent an academic year at the UCT a couple of years ago. So I was looking for a customizable tour that doesn’t simply check off the highlights like a shopping list, but instead allows for a more playful approach to photography and thereby discovering familiar places from a new perspective. Greg gave me very useful tips that really made a difference. He explains the idea behind a certain technique and encourages you to explore and play. Greg patiently answers all questions and assists when necessary.

    During our tour we did not only chat about photography and I really appreciated that he also shared his knowledge regarding the history of the region. In retrospect that day made me reconsider my own approach to photography, why I love photography and what I want to do with my camera. Finding Greg turned out to be some kind of serendipity and I can  highly recommend going on a tour with him!

  • Alexander

    I booked a photo walk in Cape Town as a group tour.  At the end of the summer season it turned out that I was the only participant in this photo walk. However, this Greg only told me the moment we and he did this as an individual tour for me.

    My intention was to learn a bit more about photography, but also to hear more about the city and culture.

    My expectations were more than fulfilled by Greg. Obviously he knows a lot of photography and I learnt some things which I considered not as possible before and never even tried - and suddenly with good advice it worked.

    Besides that Greg knows a lot of real characters in the city. With his pleasant way he was able to involve people into talks which gave me the opportunity to take some great shots.

    I can highly recommend to go on a tour with Greg.
