Escape to the Cape is a young and dynamic Cape Town based tour operating company. It was started by SHAHEED EBRAHIM, a university commerce graduate who has worked both abroad and in South Africa as a private banker for a large international bank.

In his frequent international business and leisure travels and everyday interaction with foreigners, Shaheed realized that many of the local Cape Town tour operators did not offer a full, affordable, informative, safe and luxury tour experience of the standard that foreigners expected. He thus set out to devise a unique tour concept based on the following broad principles:

All prices quoted are fully inclusive of all entry fees. There are no hidden costs!

Light snacks and bottled water are provided on all set tours and a light lunch is also included on set full day tours.

All tours are conducted in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle which is substantially insured for passenger liability and has the necessary legal permits. The vehicle is equipped with satellite tracking, a quality public address system, an onboard fridge which can keep drinks both hot or cold, multiple cellphone and laptop charging facilities, 3G internet access and a netbook at your disposal.

All tours are conducted by young, energetic and knowledgeable guides who are passionate about Cape Town and who are government registered and accredited.

Tours are designed in such a way that you are often taken off the beaten track so that you experience not only the tourist elements of the City but the cultural diversity of everyday life – warts and all!

There are special tours which accommodate children and babies. The tours are designed to accommodate children’s needs allowing enough flexibility for meal times, rest, and play and are aimed specifically at ensuring that kids have a ball of a time! There is a selection of toys in our vehicles to keep the little ones busy as we make our way across the City and beyond.

We will go the extra mile to accommodate your needs and interests. We can arrange almost anything you can think of ranging from a relaxing meal in the home of a local Capetonian to a heart-stopping ride in a combat air jet! Simply contact us to create a tailor-made tour just for you.

For your peace of mind Shaheed has police clearance with the South African Police Services.

We will advise and assist you at no extra charge with dinner and social arrangements, accommodation and local flight bookings. There is no request that is too big or too small. We are ready to assist you in whatever way we can!

There is simply no better way to enjoy the sights, sounds and many delights of Cape Town then with Escape to the Cape. Come discover South Africa with us and let us help you make memories to last a lifetime…..
