  • "Fantastic experience!"

    What can I say...the best way to see Cape Town! George arrived for our 2 hour ride which took us to Hout Bay, Signal Hill and surrounding areas. We stopped off at numerous points where George provided a fully guided tour, explaining the sights and answering questions. He even stopped at the Harley shop so I could get a t-shirt. Everything from the motorbike, the scenery and George himself was spectacular. I would highly recommend having this as something on your to do list when visiting Cape Town!
  • "Amazing Harley-experience!"

    My Mom and I always dreamt of experiencing the thrill of taking a ride on a Harley. We booked a 2-hour guided ride with Skaris Touring and George was so great in accommodating all our requests and soon, my Mom and I got whisked away by George and Johnny! The thrill of being on these beautiful and powerful bikes, being expertly guided along some of the most beautiful scenery, and the laughs and great company shared along the way will always be remembered.

  • "Amazing"

    My wife of 72 had never been on a motor bike & I hadn't for 35 years so with some trepidation I booked with George for a half day trip my Wife had agreed but when it came to the time she was petrified anyway we got on the bikes & off we went so after clinging on to George after 10 minutes she started to relax & enjoy the tip & started a smile that never left her face so proud of her to conquer her fears thanks George & Peter for a great morning until next time.

  • "Super fun"

    Been in Cape Town quite a few times and I was looking to do something different. I really don't like motorbikes or speed in general, but I noticed all the good reviews George had and thought maybe I should give it a try after all. Definitely a good decision! George was super nice and didn't go any faster than I felt comfortable with. It was a great ride around the area; seals, mountains and stunning views and he is very funny and knowledgeable - thanks for the restaurant tips as well :)
    The day after my trip I got stuck in traffic in a car, it was frustrating and hot and I found myself thinking; 'this would have been so much easier and faster if only I had been on a bike
    I'm a little worried now that George broke me and I'm turning into some crazy biker chick who doesn't have the patience for normal transportation such as cars and busses ;)
    All jokes aside, it was an amazing trip and definitely recommendable. The bike is not as scary as it looks. I promise :)

  • "All You Could Wish For From A Tour Guide"

    We visited Camps Bay for two weeks over new year. I chose George having seen his positive reviews and were certainly not disappointed. He was everything you could wish for from a tour guide knowledgeable, entertaining and with a 'can do' attitude. We had such good fun on our day trips he really maximised our experience. He seemed to know everybody in the region and managed to secure restaurant reservations etc where we had failed. George is certainly the man to know we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody visiting the region and such good value. Well done George you are a star! (Ipswitch, UK)
  • "Cape Town, Wine Farms and Harley Davison scenic ride"

    My friend and I were privately guided over a period of 3 days on a Cape Town tour including the city and Table Mountain, Chapmans Peak, Cape Point, Simonstown, Fishoek, Hout Bay, Constantia, Sea Point, Stellenbosch etc etc and surrounding areas. We had lunch at a beautiful wine farm in Franschoek and did wine tasting at some others. We experienced a scenic trip on Harley Davidson motorcycles witnessing some of the most beautiful views in the world! Service was personalized and impeccable. Our guide, George, took us to the best restaurants and was a wealth of information. I would highly recommend all of the tours provided and we look forward to doing more of them in the future - including their newest Jeep tour. Very exciting indeed. Reliable, excellent service, knowledgeable staff, comfortable and luxurious transport and lots of fun. We were also able to tailor our package to our own needs. This has to be the best Cape Town has to offer and I would say as a tourist, you cannot do Cape Town without a good, reliable tour operator like Skaris Touring. Well done George and thank you for making our visit so memorable! We will be back! (Cathy/Sue Hong Kong)

  • "Best ever touring company in Cape Town"

    We used Skaris touring company through out our stay in Cape town last year on the 17th - 23rd December 2014. We were from Botswana and it was so so awesome to use Skaris touring company. We were about 250 of us but never the less George managed such a big group of teachers. He was so patient and so humble when dealing with such a large group. He booked for all our trips and I enjoyed the trip to robin island, seal island, cape point, cape of good hope and most enjoyable trip was at Camps bay beach, waoooooo the place is picturesque, the beach has a beautiful site. I really enjoyed my time there. George booked us hop on hop off bus and it was interesting to tour mother city with the bus. Skaris touring Company is so so good, just try it and enjoy your stay in Cape town. George is a good guide and so patient. (K, Gabarone)
  • "Best company to use when touring South Africa"

    Skaris Touring organised all of our company activities and everything went smoothly. There was about 80 of us so it was a big group, but everyone had a fantastic time. We had Table Mountain hike, Harley/Jet Boat ride, Wine Tour, Shark Cage Dive and Helicopter ride organised, plus all the transfers that came with it. They were flexible with numbers and timing.
    George - owner of Skaris Touring, came for the whole trip and made a great MC/Host to the whole conference. He is funny and sociable and made sure all our guests were comfortable.
    I highly recommend this company.
  • "Our trip to Cape town 22-29 JULY"

    We had one of our most wonderful holidays and we had discovered Cape town and its surroundings within a week including 2 days of bad weather. Honestly this will not be possible without our STAR GEORGES who managed to plan /re schedule/re-organise in order to optimise my visits during this short stay. He IS NOT JUST a guide ?, he is a FRIEND, ENTERTAINER, ADVISOR, BODYGUARD, CHARMFUL !!!! This guy knows everything, the whole Cape Town and its people. My family and I were actually very impressed by his product knowledge, his warm welcoming and his attention to details of service. He looks after us as friends, entertains everybody and advise us on restaurants, shopping and security issues. we feel very secure with him, everywhere, even the baboons are sacred of him !! ?

Highly recommended!!
  • The Swiss in holiday!!

    In October 2013, for two weeks, our family took part in a cycling Holiday in South Africa. My husband, our two sons and their girl-friends went to mountain biking. During their courses, George and I followed them in his van. Every day we had very good accommodation in each area we passed through, we met a lot of welcoming people. We almost discovered a new place every day! George is famous everywhere!
    He's also fond of his country and knows all about the wildlife, the landscapes and the people! What a lot of interesting discussions we had! Thanks to him I learnt a lot about animals and flowers.
    His business is really exciting for him and he shares it enthusiastically...
    We had funny evenings all of us, good laughers.
    Every day at each time we made the most of George'job!
    These holidays will remain for ever in our memories
    South Africa is worth seeing....especially if George attends to you!!

  • "Simply the best!"

    Outstanding and memorable would describe our recent tour of the Cape under the auspices of Skaris Touring.

    We had the pleasure of hosting and co-ordinating a large contingent of Australian guests, some of whom were first time visitors to South Africa. George handled all the transfers, tours and logistics in his very efficient and friendly manner. He also spent quite a lot of his own free time with the group, generously sharing his knowledge and information about Cape Town and its surrounding areas and coastline. At the same time keeping everyone highly amused by his anecdotes and good sense of humour.

    George is Skaris Touring and highly recommended as an invaluable support to any company or individual wishing to organise touring in his part of the world.

    Thank you so much again George, kudos to you!

  • "Great day touring the Peninsula"

    Reviewed October, 2013
    My wife and I had 3 nights in Cape Town following a safari in Botswana. I had prearranged with George to be met at the airport and sure enough, coming out of customs, we found a charming gentleman to greet us with our names on a sign. While George was not able to be there himself due to a prior obligation, he had sent a trusted associate, Gary, who took care of us and was just incredible. In addition to the airport transfers in a very comfortable Mercedes van, we had scheduled a tour of the Cape Peninsula. Gary was punctual, informative, courteous and very knowledgeable about the area and South Africa in general. We were delighted with his professionalism and thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our experience.

    Also, George had booked our reservation for us in a small boutique hotel, securing a discount where none was otherwise available as he personally knew the owner of the property. Just another benefit of booking with George Skaris. I would absolutely recommend his services.

  • "Fantastic Tours around Cape Town"

    Reviewed October, 2013
    AWESOME is the only way to describe George and his excursions!

    Travelling alone to Cape Town for a mini holiday, I was met at the airport by George and immediately felt at ease in his company.

    Apart from the trips I had booked with George- a day touring on the back of his Harley Davidson which was simply one of the best things I have EVER done – we visited so many places - and another day visiting the cheetah sanctuary, Table Mountain and the delightful wine districts of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek - nothing was too much trouble – George is very knowledgeable on local history and freely shared his knowledge of places to eat out, shop or even to take a nice walk.

    His desire to ensure you get the most from your visit to his hometown of which he is clearly very proud and his knowledge of surrounding areas, is second to none. He caters for all tastes – whether you want an active holiday or just to relax and unwind.

    I cannot recommend George highly enough to anyone travelling to this beautiful part of South Africa.

    I'm already planning my return trip as there is far too much to cover on one short trip!

    Reviewed July, 2013
    I belong to a group of girlfriends who go away once a year for a little R&R and some downtime from the hubbies and kids (of which we have 19 between the 9 of us - children that is, NOT husbands!). This year, the organisers arranged for us to visit Cape Town and they hired George to be our chauffeur, tour guide and all round nice guy! And that he was...
    As a group we have all been to, or lived in , Cape Town so I loved the flexibility of the tours. When nothing was happening at the restaurant we thought we would go to for dinner, he took us to Beluga instead (and booked a table for us) - which was wonderful! When we needed to stop for a toilet break, we did so at a quaint place in Kommetjie (not just the Engen garage).
    George was knowledgable, dependable and lots of fun! I would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to see the best that the Cape has to offer - with their own itinerary and at their own pace!

He made sure that the kids had plenty of entertainment, making sure and stopping to see animals and other oddities along the way. We were introduced to great food, including local's restaurants that may not be in your traditional tourist routes. Everyone in our group of 10 felt at ease with George. He was very good at answering our questions giving us insightful information about the history, geography or just simply daily cultural mores in SA. Thanks George!!!

    Reviewed July, 2013
    Joining my wife for a look around Cape Town for the first time before her work conference, we were greeted by a very friendly and personable George Skaris from Skaris Touring for our airport transfers! It was perfect weather, so we decided to follow a friend's recommendation and make going to the top of Table Mountain our first priority. So, we asked George if he was free to take us up there that afternoon, and do a half-day Cape Town sightseeing tour afterwards - and we're glad to say he was! We're really glad we engaged his services! George was friendly, conversational, and though definitely an extrovert, not obtrusive. The Table Mountain experience was great and was enhanced with some of the extra information thrown in by George. And the CT half day tour was fun and flexible, aided by George's knowledge of traffic conditions allowing a smooth ride from point to point. Probably one of the highlights was viewing Sea lions up-close-and-personal at a special little spot known to few! We could even take close up shots from the van - we were that close. Ask George to take you there when you book! :) Overall, a very satisfying tour - and would highly recommend George for your tour needs in Cape Town! Thanks again George!

    We can't praise George highly enough. From the time we landed in Cape Town until we departed 10 days later, he had thought of everything. We toured Cape Town and ate at amazing restaurants as suggested by George. We travelled to Zambia and Zimbabwe to tour Victoria Falls. He provided us with great options to tour the falls - Zambezi River dinner cruise, guided walking tour along the falls and a helicopter tour. Our son even did a bungee jump. Food, transportation and accommodations were first rate. We then headed to Madikwe River Lodge for our safari. Our guide was amazing - not only finding the Big Five but also teaching us about the animals, the trees, the birds and any question we threw at him. The food, accommodation and service were all top notch. Our only regret is we didn't have more time. George arranged everything for us and it was the trip of a lifetime for our family. We highly recommend choosing him if you plan to tour in Africa.

I was picked up at my hotel, George provided the equipment I needed and we made our way round the various bays over the course of the day. Having never really been a bike enthusiast, I didn't really know what to expect but it turned out to be a fantastic experience. As well as being a great guide, George was a genuinely nice guy who you would be pleased to share lunch or a beer with. The bike tour can be done individually or in much bigger groups and is a great way to see the stunning coastline.

  • Brett Hill & Family, Cayman Islands & San Francisco

    A large group of us have just visited the Cape from the Cayman Islands and San Francisco - 4 families in all. We engaged Skaris Touring to handle our accommodation, itinerary and additional drivers for our 9 nights in the Cape and I must say that George could not have been more helpful. There was no nickel and diming over the cost of his services and he was very flexible with daily timing. He also personally inspected our chosen accommodation and set up the appropriate sleeping arrangements - not an easy task when 4 families are sharing 3 apartments. Our group consisted of 18 people from 2 to 50 years of age so it was quite a diverse bunch and at various times, different people wanted to do different things. George made it happen with no fuss whatsoever and went way above our expectations in terms of booking restaurants, shark dives, mountain biking, etc. Nothing was too much trouble in spite of his having to deal with a constantly moving target as regards the itinerary. George has great interpersonal skills and is a fun guy to spend time with. And one little secret - he's also talented guitarist and singer. Make sure you arrange an evening around the braai (BBQ for those non-Saffers). I have absolutely no reservations recommending Skaris Touring. Cool, thanks and chat later

    From the moment he picked us up from the Airport we knew George Skaris was not an ordinary kind of tour guide. George made us feel totally at home in Cape Town and in his beloved Camps Bay. We missed out on nothing as George took us on a local's tour of his beautiful city. His knowledge of the wine region was unsurpassed and he was the BEST guy to have on safari that you can imagine. But more than that - George is funny, smart, generous and has a knack of getting on with everyone, especially the kids (all important) and getting that extra out of every situation. When holiday time is short, you want it to be perfect. And George does his best to make that happen. Our family holiday to South Africa was unforgettable and Skaris Touring had a lot to do with that. Try it - you'll LOVE IT!

We saw George's Whale (it's a must see), the baboons, some Penguins and played with the Ostriches (we weren't even in a reserve).

It is worth to go on a tour with George when you are in Cape Town - and I'm sure it will be an unforgettable experience and therefore we all send you an enormous hug and we really hope to see you again!
