About MeWelcome to GUIDE ME CAPE TOWN, my name is Daniel Sidis.
You have at your service a fully trained accredited guide who has lived in Cape Town since the 1960s. My speciality is doing private tours of not more than 6 people, but I am able to cater for bigger groups as well, if the need arises. In a smaller group there is more flexibility, it is more intimate and you can better enjoy the sharing of my knowledge. I cover the Cape Town & surrounding areas as well as the fantastic overland tours of the Garden Route (3 to 4 day tours).
I offer you a guide that becomes your friend. You will receive personal advice, on all your travel plans. My services include airport transfers, reservation for accommodation, car hire, shopping and cruises. I can sometimes obtain discounts on the above & I would gladly pass them on to you. The aim is to make your stay in our beautiful country worthwhile & full of wonderful memories. My specialities are tours in & around Cape Town & Garden Route & promoting South Africa, this miracle nation and new democracy.
One of the most frequently asked questions is about safety and security in our country. Just as in most cities Cape Town has its security problems but being accompanied by an experienced tour guide, your chances of safety issues are hugely minimized & clients need never be in a vulnerable situation.
My love for guiding combined with the enthusiasm in promoting South Africa & its history, its peoples & cultures will make your trip an unforgettable one.
