Customer Reviews

Loved it. Did the Craft Crawl with Nick the day after doing Peninsula Vibes (also with Nick! Cheers Nick!). Was absolutely perfect to see some of the "must see" market scenes along with some hidden gems. Absolutely loved Pienaar and Sons. Loved how out of the way at felt. And the gentlemen there seemed so passionate about the gin. In fact I've sent them an inquiry to see if they distribute to anywhere in the States to get some more. Also loved the behind the scenes coffee experience at Truth. Appreciated Nick going out of his way to see if Innocent (?) could do the tasting with the 2 of us since another group cancelled. Loved Oranjezecht and Old Biscuit Mill as well. Perhaps my least favorite destination was the gin distillery near the Biscuit Mill. But I was still more than happy to sample as it made me appreciate Pienaar and Sons that much more. Also the tea gin was very unique. All in all it was exactly what we were looking for. Personally, I thought it was awesome to do Peninsula Vibes followed by Craft Crawl back to back. I have no idea what the numbers look like on your end, or how busy you are at various points of the year, but perhaps some sort of package deal may be something to look into, at least in the offseason. All the best, Bryan - Bryan Sweat


I found The Craft Crawl tour with Local Knowledge to be an excellent experience especially because I was travelling solo. The team were punctual, friendly, easy going and professional tour guides. Great comms and they went out of their way to get me on a tour even though it wasn't available on the day. Keegan, my guide, drove me everywhere and showed me some secret vantage points of the Clifton, Camps Bay, cool bars, coffee shops, gin distilleries, local fashion shops in the city. I got to see more of the real Cape Town that day than I did in the whole week I was there. Cape Town is an amazing place and you need a local to show you around to get the full experience. Well done guys I will recommend your tours to my friends when they come out. - Sean Fitzsimmons
