    We spent 3 days with George while we were in Cape Town... He made sure to understand what we wanted to do and see and to get an understanding of our interests so that we could do everything we wanted to do during our relatively short stay.  He made suggestions of places to go and things to do for the times that we were not with him.  He was 100% focused on giving us the best experience possible (which he definitely succeeded in doing).  I only wish we could have seen all of South Africa with him... perhaps next time!

    My husband and I booked a tour through South Africa.  George was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. He met us at the airport upon arrival to Cape Town and saw to every detail as we toured Cape Town, Kruger National Park and finally Victoria Falls and saw us off safely as we departed for home in Johannesburg.  He was knowledgeable, friendly, fun and flexible if needed. He made our trip one of the best experiences of our lifetime.

    We will be forever grateful for his excellent service.

    George Meyer is a tour guide force to be reckoned with! Upon arrival, he made a great impression. He was professional, polite, accomodating to each of our unique personal needs and made sure the trip was meeting our highest expectations. His sense of humor and  wit made us laugh every day! His knowledge and love for all that is South Africa was evident at each  point of the adventure.  He connected with each traveler working diligently to make the experience impactful.  His wealth of knowledge about the history and current times in South Africa made for lively conversation.  He was prepared, on time and  knew intuitively how to pace the group.  We cannot say enough good things about George. He was the star of our team and held the lead position with great confidence.  We love George and will return to Africa , largely because of our experience with George as a guide for Micato Safaris.  We look forward to traveling again with George as our guide!

    We planned a lengthly tour of South Africa:  From Pretoria to Cape Town on the Blue Train.  Then staying in Cape Town for a week before meeting our tour group.  However, once we exited the Blue Train in Cape Town, we were met by such a friendly face:  George Meyer.  George guided us every step of the way throughout our visit to Cape Town, Kruger National Park, and Victoria Falls.  George's ability to communicate his vast knowledge of South African history with a friendly flair created an extremely wonderful experience that we shall never forget.  Occationally, local customs or cultures would throw us a curve, but George would reach into his expanding resourceful nature, adapt, overcome and inprovise a solution that was sound for everyone.  George's outstanding communication skills, combined with his extensive knowledge of the area, his friendly nature and unlimited resourcefulness reflects great credit upon himself and the entire Micato Safari Group.  Thanks for a great time George.  You're the greatest!

  • Bobbi

    We had a relatively short stay in Cape Town and booked George for the Penninsula tour.  What an adventure. Hard to believe we saw so much in one day. And George was the quintessential tour guide. So knowledgeable and as pleasant as could be. He and my husband had a conversation going the entire time!! We saw flora and fauna all new to us and George new the names and history behind them all.  My favorite was taking a picture in front of the Cape Point land mark and the baboon decided to photo bomb the picture!!  Loved every minute of it!!! We will be back and we will be seeking out George for another adventure!

  • Douglas

    My family and I came in to Cape Town for a couple days  and from beginning to end, George went out of his way for us. He shares a perfect blend of personal and historical facts while you tour with him and he intuitively  gives space when needed. 

    George was able to pack so much amazing activity into essentially one and a half days,  which is without a doubt a miracle. Our age range on this trip was from ages 2-73 years old and he had us all engaged all the way through.  A highlight from our experience with George was when he took us to a non tourist spot for lunch. It was the best meal I had in South Africa . 

    Thank you George for taking such wonderful care of us. We will be back!  

  • Claire

    George is an exceptional tour guide! We were so very fortunate to be able to spend four amazing days with him! From the start communication was efficient and excellent. George  met us so warmly with a lovely gift bag at the airport. He was very personable and we felt very comfortable with him right away and as if we  had known him for much longer. He is knowledgeable, professional  and has a good sense of humour. George is perceptive and very thoughtful and gets to know you very quickly. He became a good friend during our tour with him. He created such an amazingly personalized tour for us which was so overwhelmingly enjoyable as it unfolded. We could not have wished for more than what he delivered and our time with him exceeded all of our expectations. George was attentive to our needs and all of the daily details. He really helped us to learn about Cape Town and its surrounding areas including the West Coast, Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. We saw so much and learned about the history, plants and animals of the area as well as meeting many special people including Christo Brand. George always paced the day according to our needs. He even took us to the airport on our last day and we felt as if we were saying goodbye to a family member.

    We highly recommend George as a tour guide. We thank you, George, for all that you did for us to provide such a memorable time in Cape Town. You are a friend for life! We hope to return in the future.

  • Ron & Deb

    George is great. Very attentive and flexible to our interests/needs. Thoroughly enjoyable day to the wine lands and Dylan Lewis sculpture garden, would highly recommend. 

  • Ronda

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with George.  While we were on a "set" tour he catered to our interests along the way and adjusted accordingly.  He was very knowledgeable and informative.  He was able to keep both of us interested which is not always easy as we have different interests.  We would highly recommend George as a tour guide for South Africa.  He also has a great sense of humor which we appreciated!

  • Shobha

    George has excellent local knowledge and is full of stories that truly brings a place alive. History and geography featured large in his narrative when he realised that that was of interest to us. He is able to discern his clients’ interests and tailor the trip accordingly. 

    That’s not the only thing that sets George apart - he is so personable, always cheerful, very caring on top of being zany and adventurous. His mantra is “it’s all about the clients’ experience”. 

    As testimony to his guiding, I invite you to read my blog post on my recent trip to the Western Cape:

  • Geetha

    The itinerary George and Tracey Meyer of Geotrac set for our 10 day Capetown and Western Cape trip was comprehensive and interesting . But what made it even more memorable was the sho’lefts or spur of the moment deviations George took based on our special interests. George is knowledgable and passionate about sharing his South Africa..

  • Aleta

    George was such an amazing guide and an absolute pleasure every second of our time together.  George was extremely knowledgeable and knew the best places to take us at the best times of the day!  I highly reccomend George!

  • Maggie

    From beginning (I mean the VERY first email communication) to end (well it hasn't ended because why would I want to ever stop ?) George was absolutely wonderful.  His ability to put together an itinerary that reflected everything we wanted was incredible!!!.  He was responsive,  informative, and he made planning a trip to S. Africa really fun.  George was our guide for 5 days.  He was an absolute pleasure to be with. He educated us about everything!  There wasn't a question we could ask that he wasn't prepared to answer.  He taught us about the wildlife, geography, flowers, and history of the area.  He had the best recommendations for restaurants too -- always making sure we were eating in the best little out-of-the-way places that reflected the finest local fare.  His story telling was captivating and his commitment to ensuring we were well cared for and had an unforgetable experience was stellar.  Seriously, I cannot recommend him more highly.  If you are going to S. Africa, go with George.  You'll be happy you did.

  • Alexandria

    George and Tracy meticulously planned our trip almost a year in advance.  They were attentive to the details that we provided them, from the marvelous accomodations to the tours to the restaurants.   He was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, professional and beyond humorous, always entertaining us.  After landing late at night in Cape Town after traveling over 28 hours via air, he greeted us with a huge hug and a smile at the airport.  It was a pleasure to have the next week all planned out for us, even leaving room for flexibility as needed.  I would not hesitate to recommend Geotrac Tours and look forward to our long lasting friendship with George and Tracy.

  • Vito

    George was a pleasure to be with during our entire Trip to CapeTown: Very professional and Knowledgeable and accomodated our requests.  Would happily do it again and recommend George to our friends. 

  • John

    After gathering all six of us and doing introductions we left for the hotel. George immediately began to give us a history of Cape Town and point out points of interest we immediately knew from his knowledge and personality we were in good hands this proved true and it was a wonderful way to begin our adventure in Africa 

  • Yuri

    It was my first visit in Cape Town, and I had a great 1 day tour experience with George. It was a private tour and he took me almost all of the places I wanted to go ( I didn't go Table Mountain because the queue was too long. It was not his fault!). 

    I will definitely ask him a guide again next time. I totally recommend him to my friends!

  • Mary Ann

    We experienced a “trip of a lifetime” to Africa in September. George Meyer was our guide while in Cape Town. His enthusiasm, attention to detail and wealth of knowledge for the area was outstanding. If we were ever able to return to this beautiful continent, George would be our choice to guide our trip.  His has an easy going mannerism yet without  a doubt, he does his dual diligence behind the scenes to make certain your experience traveling in a foreign country is flawless. 

  • Jodi

    George Meyer met 6 of us at the airport in Cape Town. He immediately gave us a warm welcome. From the beginning, his passion for his country in how he communicated with us in showing us Cape Town and surrounding areas put permanent smiles on our faces. Every detail of our trip was taken care of and communicated to us to leave us enjoying the journey and never having to think or worry about the details.

    We would like to add that we are world travelers using some big name touring companies. This year alone we are on our sixth journey with two more to go. We bring this up only to say our standards are high. George’s performance was one of the best we had the pleasure to experience. He’s a keeper, a friend for life!!

  • Jackie

    George was a fantastic guide on our tour of Cape Town! He was engaging, upbeat, knowledgeable and downright fun to be around! He knows so much about the history and culture of Cape Town, and we just felt so lucky he could share that knowledge with us. Our trip definitely wouldn't have been the same without him. Thanks for helping make our trip so magical, George!
