On a previous visit the weather was great until I got to the point where we could see nothing.The weather had closed in. This time it was fantastic. It all opened up before me. It is a must to behold. The buity and history of the are. Thank you Viator.

This was a good tour and I'm glad we went, but it really is barely doable as a half day. We were delayed about an hour leaving Cape Town because of no shows at several hotels (not the driver's fault--he couldn't find the people with confirmed reservations and even went back to a hotel a second time to look for them). The driver add time on the back end--we didn't get back to our hotel until after 2:00 p.m. Having said that, please note that about 2/3 of the tour is driving. We only had about 20 minutes in the Cape Point area--not enough time to get up to the lighthouse. We had about the same amount of time to see the penguins. If you just can't spend the time on the full-day tour, definitely take this tour, but be prepared for a lot of driving and not much time to walk around. Also, the tour was conducted with a minibus (no restroom)--a full size bus would have been more comfortable. Driver was knowledgeable and tried hard to please.

Loved the tour Only thing was they were an hour late picking us up as a firm called African Eagle had taken the booking from Springbok Atlas. We were told to be ready for 8am but then were sent a message to say it would be 850am and when the coach had not arrived by 9 am our reception rang the firm and they said they were on their way. Although it was a mini bus and was a bit rushed as it was a long way we did enjoy it. Our driver was good and funny.

I thought the itinerary was great, but I was disappointed with the tour guide. Although he was nice and tried to point out interesting facts, I found his English to be incredibly difficult to understand and not completely fluent. While I understand he tried to give us as much time as possible, my husband and I both felt a bit carsick on the ride back. We felt safe, but the speed and swerving traffic were a bit too much for us. Itinerary was awesome. Could have done without the ostrich farm stop.
