About Us

Cape Courtesy was established in 1989 with the express purpose of serving the business visitors to South Africa. Since then the need to offer private and exclusive tours to our clients and their families has increased. Today private leisure touring, personally hosted by Robert, is one of our most requested services.

Cape Courtesy is still owned and operated by Robert Verbruggen and Cheryl Mulder-Verbruggen. Our attention to detail and determination to offer the highest possible levels of service have ensured that our clients simply keep coming back, and recommending us.

It has also resulted in us being requested to be of service in other parts of the world. This is something we do with ease and pleasure, using our extensive international network of travel associates to support our offering,

Our spectrum of service includes the following:

Private Tours & Excursions

Corporate Hospitality

Meeting Facilitation

Health & Wellness Programmes for Executives

Accommodation - Self Catering Cottage (Cape Town)

Robert is qualified as a National Tourist Guide in South Africa and is fluent in English, Dutch, German and Afrikaans. His extensive experience allows us to present sightseeing programmes that range from basic and popular to as creative as time and interest permit.

We have excellent experience at running fully-fledged hospitality offices supporting small board meetings right through to major international events. Agreements with various quality hotels are in place and we are able to offer attractive rates for both accommodation and meeting facilities.


Guest Book

Our visitor’s books are filled with entries from all over the world. China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, Lithuania, Iceland, Norway, The Netherlands, Germany, France, United States, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Turkey, Greece, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Tanzania, Uganda, Angola, Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia... the list is endless.

The entry that probably describes our service most accurately is " Professional service at its very best. Great people. New friends."

And the August 1998 entry "Service that can't be beaten. Fantastic. A real professional first class service. We'll recommend this to everyone." by somebody who is still a regular client today. It echoes not only throughout the visitors books, but in the emails and telephone calls we regularly receive from friends of those to whom we have been of service.
