Nice overview of the peninsula. The program was perfect for a one day excursion. The botanical garden will deserve another day.
Very scenic tour. Several beautiful places to see. Driver/guide was very informative. I will definitely visit Cape Peninsula again
This was a fantastic full day tour and one we would recommend for anyone visiting Cape Town. We found it difficult to choose between the full day and half day tour but are glad we chose the full day tour as there was so much to see and do. Our guide, Rodney was brilliant with his knowledge, flexibility and sense of humour. There were eight of us in a mini-bus - a lovely small group. He encouraged us to take the optional tour around seal island and it was amazing to watch the numerous seals diving in and out of the water.
Next we drove to Cape Point and saw spectacular scenery both there and, in fact all day. At the Cape of Good Hope baboons strolled along the roadside! After a good lunch in a harbour restaurant in Simon's Town organised by Rodney, at our own expense we headed for what we had been really looking forward to all day - the Penguin Colony on Boulder's Beach. Although smaller than we imagined, it was wonderful! It was fascinating to watch their behaviour: some were diving in and out of the sea, others were basking in the sun and babies were nestled beneath their parents in dug-out holes!
Reluctantly we left the colony but we enjoyed Kirstenbosch Gardens at the end of our incredible day.
1st class full day tour , driver was prompt and full of information , we did all and more well done
Fantastic tour - full of stunning sights and great stories. Our guide Super always had a fun fact or story to share. There was never a dull moment, even on the longer drives between stops throughout the Cape Peninsula. Super offered great advice for navigating the more crowded attractions like Cape Point and the Boulders Beach penguin colony. We didn't get a car in Cape Town, and this tour was a fantastic way for us to see spots like the Cape of Good Hope and Chapman's Drive that aren't easily accessibly by bus or train. We saw so much of the land and even some unexpected wildlife - fur seals, penguins and wild ostriches. An excellent day, highly recommended.

Wonderful day trip from cruise ship. Allen, the tour guide knew the history and area we travelled. Because it was raining, he took us to the penguins first, then lunch nearby. Whereby tours booked through the cruise ship went immediately to the cape of good hope. By going to the penguins first, we arrived at the Cape at approx. 2.30 pm. When we arrived the sun was out. We were able to climb to the lighthouse, where by the fellow passengers from the cruise ship didn't. With Allen's local knowledge, he made the day trip worth while, even though we left when it was raining. Great day tour.
Our guide Super is really helpful and experience guy. It is indeed a wonderful day tour.
This is a great tour, definitely recommend it. You see so many wonderful things all in one day --- Camps Bay, Hout Bay, seal island, Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Boulder's Beach, Kirstenbosch botanical garden, and gorgeous views all along the way. We loved all the wildlife, too -- seals, penguins, baboons, ostrich, bonte bok antelope, tortoises, and many birds. Our guide Bayehtay sp? with the local tour operator was amazing - he was so knowledgeable and friendly.
Saw everything as described - so much to see in Cape Town but this encompassed a big chunk of it and is surely the easiest way to do it. We saw the seals, the penguins, the baboons, cape point and cape of good hope, plus the kirstenbosch botanical gardens. We stopped en route a number of times for some great photo ops too. As a solo traveller it was nice to meet some more and I met up with them again to see other tourist attractions/have dinner. For the price it was 5 stars!
Good one day trip also thanks to perfect guide. It was why to take it.
Great tour of the area with a very good guide. The price was very reasonable as well. 5-stars on all fronts!
We had a great day!
Our driver and guide was charming and gave us a nice relaxed experience of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
Viator was also very helpful.
I had some issues getting my card to work online with the site and the woman I spoke with on the phone was super helpful and got us all sorted.
I fully recommend this trip and Viator.
Thorough, but not too rushed. Of course, you can always wish you could stay longer everywhere, but then that would require a two day trip. We saw everything on the agenda at a relaxed pace.
The whole day was great, I was surprised how much Rodney managed to get in. Each element of the tour was well planned with just the right amount of time spent in each area and Rodney the guide was great. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Very nice trip. Time well spent. Lots of places and things seen. Everything very smooth and covered. Our guide Rodney was Kirstenbosgreat. Always trying to be ahead of all other vans and buses heading in the same direction. We were lucky to have him. We saw seals, baboons, ostriches, penguines. Every part of the trip was great. Highly recommended!
Our driver, called Super, was well just super! He gave great commentary on all the highlights and worked around heavy traffic delays. I became ill on trip and he got us to a pharmacy and was very helpful. Loved the Penguins! Full day tour with lots to see.

It was an excellent tour. I forget her name but our tour guide, an elderly lady, was caring and full of enthusiasm. We traveled in a Springboks luxury bus, and despite huge onrush of holiday traffic Dec 29 our tour guide and the driver skillfully managed the trip enabling us visit all the places on the itinerary with time to spare. I highly recommend this tour package.
This was an excellent experience and I enjoyed my time with other visitors. The group was small, and we got to know each other well. The views were spectacular, and the driver was friendly and well informed. It was a perfect way to introduce ourselves to the Cape region and get our bearings for other planned trips later in the week.
Our tour guide was Chris, who was a very friendly, very knowledgable and very entertaining guide. He picked us up bang on time and looked after us extremely well all day long. The bus was very comfortable. The tour was very interesting with the most stunning views. It has really whet our appetite for Africa. I would highly recommend this tour. We will definitely be returning. Have no worries about booking this tour. It was a great day out.
Great guide and we packed a lot into one day. Went to places you wouldn't find on your own and plenty of historic background and local knowledge. Thanks Robbie.
peninsula tour was great. Johnathan is an excellent guide, he knows a lot about the flora and the animals, he has a good sense of humor. We had a great day !!
