Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide outside your central Cape Town hotel and then hit the road to Cape Point. The drive along the coast offers views of mountains and beaches en route to scenic Hout Bay. Then you are on the famous (and famously gorgeous) Chapman's Peak Road, which connects Hout Bay and Noordhoek. Time permitting, visit the penguin colony at Boulders Beach (own expense).

Arrive at the Cape Point Nature Reserve and continue on to Cape Point. Enjoy some free time to walk up to the old lighthouse for the best views over the Atlantic Ocean. The rocky cliffs here have claimed many ships over the years—the area certainly earned its nickname of ‘Cape of Storms.’

Back in the vehicle, make your way back toward Cape Town from Cape Point through False Bay and Simons Town, a historic South African navy base. Drive through Muizenburg, a popular beach resort town, before arriving back in central Cape Town.

Our guide Ashely was great. We had 5 other guests in the van plus the two of us. We were the first guests picked up at 8am and dropped off last at 1.45pm. The half day tour is too quick. You do not get a chance to get out and view or photograph much. It was mainly driving and looking through the window. When you get to the Cape of Good Hope - it's so crowded. The group ended up skipping the penguins as 3 from the van had to be back at 1.30pm for a Township Tour. The tour was rushed. Ashely was great and very friendly. His commentary was spot on. He apologized for not seeing the penguins - but again due to timing and also the group decided not to try to see them, all good. Try and offer a full day, with coffee breaks, light lunch and more getting out of the car. This tour would suit those who prefer seeing all from the window.

Overall a good experience. Driver was experienced and knew his facts. Its a lot of driving for the sights you see along the way, but it's understandable. The driver was cranky at times, not as friendly as you might Hope. Overall we had a good time and we are glad we took the tour.

Guide very good but disappointed with Cape of Good Hope, not sure what I was expecting but it was an anti climax. Great not to have to drive though and the scenery was beautiful.Cape Point better. Boulder penguins too commercialised preferred Betty's Bay.

It's not the tour's fault - a half-day just isn't enough time to actually see everything. Basically in this half-day tour you drive for a bit then run in, take a picture and leave. Repeat that about 10 times and there's your day. Take the full-day tour instead!!! If you are traveling to Cape Town then these spots are a must see, just give yourself enough time to actually enjoy it. The tour itself was good. They picked me up on-time, I felt very safe important since I was traveling alone, and the driver/guide was very nice. The company was great about changing the date of my tour last minute my shark cage diving had to be changed due to the weather and so all of my other tours had to be moved around. This tour is great value for the money.
