My husband and I have just done a day trip with Travelgem to Chapman's Peak and Cape of Good Hope. The tour guide John Sinclair was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had an amazing day and it was thanks to him. We highly recommend TravelGem and tour guide John.

I was a guest during August 2019. I would like to give such positive feedback on the experience I had there. The pick up from CT International airport was very professional. Then followed the sunset cruise- oh my- what an experience! I cannot recall a time I have had such valuable time I have spent on a holiday with my 4 children.

We had an amazing time. Everything from the correspondence and patience to planning a tailor made day tour for us was amazing. John was awesome and flexible and patient. I wouldn’t have known what to have done with my friend in town and you saved the day. Thank you Travel Gem!
