Cape Town is one of the best cities to visit in the world with many attractions such as Table Mountain, Robben Island, The Cape of Good Hope, its white sandy beaches and many more.
While lots of places can be visited without a tourist guide, there are many other tourist points we recommend you going with a trained tourist guide in order to benefit from the maximum pleasure the destination has to offer.
Because we get most of our customers from Brazil, Angola, Portugal and other Portuguese speaking countries we decided to write a few tips to keep in mind to help our prospective clients plan their trip.
South Africa has an English driving system which means that we drive contrary to the system countries in the other parts of world use. While other countries will drive their vehicles on the right side of the road, here in South Africa we use the left hand side similar to England, Australia and other. Therefore if you desire peace of mind on the road we encourage you to delegate the task of driving and keeping art on the road to a local driver/tourist guide who knows the roads very well and have experience in driving in our busy roads.
Even though some places can be enjoyed without a guide to have someone who knows the area and speaks the language you speak will enhance the experience and maximises an understanding of your surroundings, because he will point out unnoticeable details that tourists often times do not see by themselves (do not bother to look it up on the internet).
Cape Town is the food capital city of the world and there is a huge chance that you will find whatever food flavour you are searching for. However if you have a language/Portuguese guide, he will be able to advise you and take you to the restaurants that are more likely your favourites. For those who are allergic to other types of food, the guide can help in explaining about the allergies which will help you avoid discomforts and delays giving you more time to enjoy your day. During wine tastings and safaris, these guides are of much help in translating the difficult details and interesting facts about the products.
When you are in a new country you never been before, it can take a while before you start getting used to handling the local currency. To minimise miscalculations and misunderstandings, it is best to go with a language speaking tourist guide so that he can help in such instances and save time.
In conclusion, the mother city of South Africa can be enjoyed in many different ways but here at Viemma Tours we recommend you use the services of a trained/language guide to maximise your experience.
