I have met Albert in a lucky moment on a safari tour. He is not just a guide, he is a friend that you can count on every moment. Me and my wife were very pleased to be guided by him through Cape Town during our 7 days trip. You can feel that he guides because he loves it. And he has very fair prices… We loved him and recomend to all our friends who think about visiting Cape Town.
