What You Can Expect

Cape Point Sightseeing Tour

Penguins on Boulders Beach

Start your half day tour to the Cape Point by driving along the rugged Atlantic coastline with its towering mountains and white sandy beaches. Soon, you will arrive in Hout Bay, the historical harbour and fishing point, overlooked by the impressive Sentinal peak. From here, you will begin the spectacular coastal drive along the world-famous Chapmans Peak Road. This road hugs the near vertical mountain face between Hout Bay and Noordhoek.

Arriving at the Cape of Good Hope Nature reserve, where you will make your way down to Cape Point. This rocky outcrop was known as the Cape of Storms due to the number of vessels that where shipwrecked along the coastline. You will have the opportunity to walk to the old lighthouse at the Point.

Returning from Cape Point you will follow the coastal road along False Bay, through the historic navy base, Simons Town. You will then have the chance to stop and view the world famous African Penguin colony at Boulders beach (at own expense and time permitting). Then pass through then popular holiday resort, of Muizenburg before return to the Cape Town City Centre.

The Guide was very flexible about different parts of the tour and changed them to fit our wishes. He gave us very much information about the places we visted. I highly recommend this tour.

Mostly driving tour, but otherwise a great tour. Great scenic views, baboons, and penguins. Recommend if want to see the sights on a condensed tour, but if you want more time to yourself and more walking the full day tour is probably better for you.

A very interesting excursion with spectacular scenery. We went early so missed the rush. Our guide, Maxwell, kept us to to a sensible schedule. Overall a very enjoyable morning.

Lovely drive, lovely landscaping and great informative and jovial guide. Weather was grand as well.
Worth the time to go to the "point" and even though a half day was enough. Very satisfied and was able to enjoy other activities that day as well.

We had a great tour with our guide who's name is Super just like Superman. He was very knowledgeable and did excellent job of driving and explaining all the details along wth way. The Cape is incredible along with the penguins, ostrichs, and baboons. The Cape light house is a great tour and as scenic as it gets. Thanks Super for a great day and also for dropping us off at the Green Market in town.

This tour was more like 3/4th of a day. Well worth it for the price. It was perfectly timed for all the must see places in Capetown and the guide stopped in places we requested to take lots of pictures. If you don't have a full day to spare, then this is the tour to take.
