Meet the Dream Team

Pieter Geldenhuys

PG Tops Founder & Owner/Tour Guide

PG’s Jedi abilities include a comprehensive knowledge of South African history with a strong focus on colonial Cape Town and the associated conflicts that led to the creation of the Rainbow Nation. These days, he shares this approach with his awesome team of contract guides, and ocassionally stops grumbling at the laptop to take a tour to the penguins.


Bianca Smith

Team Leader: Luxury Safaris Reservations

Bianca’s stellar report card as one of our top tour guides is eclipsed only by her consulting efficiency. She has worked in almost every part of the business, and her current duties include team leader for Luxury Safaris, HR and she still gets time to do the banking.  Favourite spots for a luxury getaway: Grootbos and Nerina Lodge, Lion Sands.


Monade van Eeden

Team Leader: PG TOPS Reservations

Monade brings extensive hospitality experience to the PG TOPS team, as she ran a boutique guest house before joining us. She loves arranging staff breakaways to glamorous destinations, and her attention to detail has made her invaluable to the business.

Monade is more bubbly than a freshly popped bottle of champagne.


Ross de Souza

Team Leader: Contract Guides and B.T.C. internships

Ross left the corporate world of call centres, language schools and IT to pursue his dream of a career in tourism. When not consulting, sorting out vehicles and contractors, he is focused on the B.T.C. Internship program, the PG TOPS initiative for sustained change in our community.

Ross loves surfing. Ross is not afraid of sharks.


Imogen McCormick-Matthews

Luxury Safaris Consultant

Imogen is only half South African, the other half English. She is half bush baby, the other half city slicker. She is, however, wholly committed to providing amazing client service and creating tours that maximize the best of the bush coupled with the Cape Town experience. Her time at Kariega private game reserve made her a valuable asset to enhance the already legendary Luxury Safaris consulting team.


Lauren-Lee Isaacs

Tour consultant

Lauren-Lee combines quiet determination with a wonderful willingness to assist and an enviable attention to detail. She juggles logistics with consulting, and her fair but consistent approach to her work has won her the respect and admiration of our boisterous guiding contingent and her office colleagues.

Key ability: Telling PG off when he sticks his nose too far in her business.

 


Danielle Janse van Rensburg

Tour consultant/ tour guide

Danielle recently joined the PG TOPS team after spending three years as a girl Friday in the glamorous world of yachting the Carribean. She has now recommitted to employing her tourism experience in a dual role of consultant and tour guide. Prepare to be impressed. Fun fact: She is learning to play the ukulele.


Diana Biester

Consultant Intern

German efficiency has once more come to PG TOPS. Diana will be with us through the winter, and she is a true believer. We are enjoying showing her around Cape Town, so she in turn can advise our clients!

 


Richard Tuswa

Specialist Culture Guide

Richard’s thoughtful introduction to his hometown of Langa has been wowing our guests for years. These days he also brings his particular perspective to our city and Cape Peninsula Tours.

When Richard isn’t on tour with us he spends as much time as possible with his family, and in particular the apple of his eye – his daughter!


Jarred Vosges

Tour Guide

Jarred has been racking up rave reviews on Tripadvisor ever since he joined the team in 2014 with his sunny personality and natural charm.

He has an amazing knowledge of flora and fauna, courtesy of many years spent as a safari guide at one of the top reserves on the Garden Route. If you’re very lucky he’ll organize one of his epic braais for you!


Ricardo Kruser

Driver

Ricardo does all of our airport transfers, day driving assignments and helps with vehicle logistics around the office. Dependable and an old pro, he is has been in the game for ages. Not a spot in the greater Cape Town peninsula that he doesn’t know about…


Contract Guides

We are lucky enough to work with a brilliant bunch of professional tour guides. Age, gender, height, race and colour of your eyes are unimportant to us, as long as you bring a youthful outlook and professional warmth to the PG TOPS experience, and ensure that our clients have the best possible experience in our beautiful country. Johan, Andrew, JJ, Sarina, Jamie, Merryl, Leslie, Provia, Jurie, Gavin and Carel are among our trusted contractors!


 Obi

The PG TOPS team mascot fills the arguably giant shoes of Simba, his early departed half brother. Oubaas se honne, Obi Wan Kenobi or the Obsidian – his name portends to greatness, and his loving nature adds something special to the office when PG is off gallivanting on tour.Key superpower: deadly bio-weapons.

Silence is golden, except when you have a puppy. Then it is suspicious… very suspicious…
