Allan is a fantastic guy. He knows a lot about lots of things: geography, history, botany, biology etc. He is very flexible and do all the things as the clients want. Very helpful, with a good price. Great cost-benefit ratio!
This was my first private guided tour and it was great. Allan is a little walking encyclopedia and he shares all sorts of information with you. He brought me to wonderful wine estates with great charm and made me feel history. I had a great experience on that day and wonderful pictures as a reminder. Many thanks to Blue Monkey Tours and Allan.

This was our first private guided tour and it was money well spent. Allan was the best guide you could wish for with his years of experience and vast knowledge of Cape Town and surrounding areas. His brief was to show us as much as possible in 2 days. Allan accommodated our wishes whenever possible and anticipated our desires at all stages of the tour. Thank you Allan for a most enjoyable 2 day where we saw more than we thought possible.
Enlisting Allan & Blue Monkey Tours to manage my excursions while in Cape Town was the best decision I made while planning my vacation. His flexibility and expert knowledge of the area (and history) ensured my group had a wonderful time. Check out Blue Monkey's website for various activity ideas to build into your next South African vacation.
My wife and I spent just over a week in Cape Town. Allan with Blue Monkey Tours is the most punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and entertaining guide we have ever had the pleasure of spending our time with. In the time we spent with Allan we were able to maximize all of our time to learn, visit, and see everything in and around Cape Town. Allan is happy and willing to tailor his day around whatever makes you happy. His goal is to make your experience the best that it can be. Allan inspired us to return to Cape Town and pursue more adventures with Blue Monkey Tours. We had the unfortunate experience with other commercial tour companies due to early booking in our trip and none of them came remotely close to our experience with Blue Monkey Tours. Allan with Blue Monkey Tours is the only tour guide we will ever use again in South Africa and I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thank You Allan
Allan is a very professional excellent guide we had our best tour in our life. We had only 3 days for Cape Town but we saw the maximum possible for that limited time.
We used Blue Monkey Tours for two days while staying in Cape Town and would definitely recommend Allan, the tour guide, to anyone wishing to see and learn more about what the region has to offer. Allan was happy to tailor the tour around our own requirements and time frame. He helped provide a very friendly and relaxed environment in which to sit back and enjoy the tour, whilst sharing his interesting knowledge of the history, geography, wildlife and culture of the area. We felt that we got far more from this than had we used a more commercial tour operator and would certainly use Allan again in the future. Many thanks to Blue Monkey Tours!!

allen is an excellent tour guide. we highly recommend allen without reservation. this was our first trip to south africa and we learned so much more about the culture, the people and the history through allen. he is professional, patience, kind and personable. he will go out of his way to make your stay enjoyalbe. we learned about allen from a wonderful husband and wife couple who volunteered at the world's first heart transplant hospital in capetown (also a great place to visit). they speak highly of allen. my wife and son (a teenager) also love allen. he is attentive, observant and will tailor your tour base on your budget. our first tour with him, because it was a last minute arrangement, we started about 1 hour late, allen voluntarily reduce his daily rate eventhough he spent the whole day with us. thank you allen.
This was our first trip to South Africa and our first wine tasking tour. And it turned out that Allan was perfect for us! He started our wine tasting tour by telling us about the history of South Africa. This was excellent because it gave us a sense of communities that lived in South Africa and how their influence lingers on till now. Allan planned our day beautifully and took us to see these magnificent vineyards and helped us understand the wine making process. He patiently answered all our questions and had an interesting, story like way of explaining things. He is very well read and knows a lot about the culture, history and heritage of Cape Town and South Africa. He selected the vineyards for us and they were all very unique and interesting. Allan is very friendly and really he has left us with such beautiful memories of South Africa that we can never forget. Thank you Allan for your wonderful company, we enjoyed every bit of it!!!

I had the pleasure of a having a two day private tour with Alan in and around Cape Town. He really brought the city's history to life and pointed out places of interests I would have otherwise never known about. You can read all of the guidebooks about Capetown, but they don't compare with the passion and knowledge of Alan with Blue Monkey Tours. He is also very professional, welcoming, and made my vacation in Cape Town very memorable.
