Format: Paperback
Without a doubt this was THE most helpful book in planning a journey in Cape Town and the Garden Route. We were constantly referring to the directions given in the book, the approx prices/ opening hours of any attractions we were visiting.

There are also good descriptions of places to visit giving informed views often within the historical context.

My girlfriend and I spent 2 weeks in South Africa and hired a car, travelling over 1000 KM on our journey. It was absolutely amazing. This book was our bible in planning our days. Please do not be put off by the "rough guide" tag, this is misleading as this guide would be invaluable to all travelers, it is certainly not just a backpackers book. Very informative, bang up to date, it gives you everything from things to do/places of interest/local history to costs and directions as well as the usual accommodation/restaurants. It was like having our own tour guide. Locals and guesthouse owners on our journey would tell us that you must do this or that, but most things we already knew about from the rough guide. We went great white shark diving, went on fantastic coastal scenery walks and in a moment of madness, I did the highest bungy jump in the world.. A must have and highly reccommended resource for anyone doing a flydrive to this wonderful part of a fabulous country. If you have never been before, you're gonna love every minute of it!

As with a lot of guide books, things change quickly, especially in this amazing country which seemed to us to be like an evolving teenager! There is so much to do in Cape Town and this guide will help you plan ahead. The Garden Route section just makes you wish you had more time over there! Was well used on our trip over Christmas 2009. Take it but don't rely 100% on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst guidebook I've ever bought! 17 Aug. 2009
By T. Riess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this guide book during a two week trip to Cape Town, traveling on the garden route to Mossel Bay, and around Montagu and found it to be one of the worst guide books that I've ever used. The organization of the maps in the book was frustrating and I found it very annoying to have to page through the book to find the appropriate map that corresponded to the text I was reading. The book provides minimal information, or leaves out altogether, some towns that I found to be the high points of my trip, e.g. De Kelders and L'Aguilhas. This left me feeling that the authors hadn't visited these towns or carried out thorough research. Consequently the book is heavy on towns that are larger and rampant tourist destinations, e.g. Hermanus. My advice is to find another book to buy or rely on the internet for more up to date and comprehensive information. Hopefully a newer edition of this book will be better researched and organized, but if it's by the same authors (Tony Pinchuck & Barbara McCrea), I wouldn't buy it.
