Great day trip
John_E, Jan 2023
Great way of seeing some of the highlights around Cape Town in a day. The trip includes the cape of good hope, plus a stop to see penguins at boulders beach and a boat trip to see some seals. All was well organised and the bus was comfortable.

This experience was one of my most memorable while visiting Cape Town. I traveled alone and so did another young lady and we were able to share this experience alongside a great guide!

Fabulous tour of the Cape
Graham_O, Feb 2020
This was the most fantastic day out from Capetown and we would recommend 100% that you do it! Our guide Leon and driver Sammy were excellent hosts and Leons knowledge was second to none (his jokes not so). But all in all SUPERB!!!!!
a great day out and shared the trip with a lovely mix of people
Heather_R, Feb 2020
this was a great trip, well organised. the leaders had lots of energy, enthusiasm and information to share.
This is worth it!
Hidetake_E, Feb 2020
A lot was contained in this tour and I was surprised that we could do all that in just one day - visiting the seal colony as well as the penguin colony, a walk up to the old lighthouse at Cape Point as well as a walk along the cliff to Cape of Good Hope, light snack and picnic lunch and some picture stops along the way. Needless to mention a great guide and a great driver. Amazing!
Cape Tour!

Had a great time and we stopped a good amount to see things. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Lunch was just average, but nice that it was included along with some breakfast snacks!
Great day at the Cape
Susanne_P, Jan 2020
The day was great, all well organized. A little more time at the Cape would have been great. Also we were not picked up at the hotel and office place is not easy to find. More information for these guests is definitely necessary.
Interesting and beautiful tour

The tour of the cape peninsula and point is well worth the visit. The landscape is rugged, beautiful and majestic. The tour guide was informative and the lunch provided was yummy and plenty. It was very sunny so take a hat.

Catherine C, Sept 2018
We had a lot of fun on this tour. We were picked up at a pre-arranged location near our hotel. As soon as the van was full approx. 16 people, we went for a beautiful drive along the Cape, accompanied by interesting info provided by Mike, our guide. Mike was knowledgable and personable. He was eager to answer questions and help us all have an enjoyable day. We stopped for an optional boat ride into Hout Bay to see a seal colony. That was fun, but if you are on a budget, you may not regret skipping this part. Other stops on the tour included great penguin viewing, a nice lunch outdoors, a hike up to the Cape lighthouse, and a short bike ride. The location for the bike ride was amazing and flat and made us wish we had our road bikes with us to explore the area widely. The bikes provided were in very rough shape. Rusty old mountain bikes. Mine had a very loose headset. Several of the helmets were old and had broken straps. This is the reason for four stars in this review and not five. Our driver, Freddy, was delightful and did his best to fit the bikes to the riders.
Excellent trip

A great way to see many highlights and the beautiful scenery from Cape Town to Cape Point. The day is packed full, from an optional boat trip to see the seals, bike ride, seeing the penguins at Boulders Beach and mini hike, the day is very well organised. All activities are optional and you will not feel left out if you do not participate. Our guide and driver were friendly and knowledgeable. We also saw a few wild animals en route. Overall an amazing and memorable day

mhawke, May 2018
Incredible day! The drive to Hout Bay, down Chapmans Peak to Cape Point is absolutely breathtaking. Our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, proving great insights throughout the day on the area. The day was well organised and planned out to maximise your time at the main points when they were also less busy! The visit to see the Penguins at Boulders Beach was a personal highlight!
A great way to see the Cape Peninsula...
sarahm, May 2018
A great way to see the Cape Peninsula, the tour has the optional bike and hike which really makes it different to the other tours and breaks the journey up. Very well planned so the only long drive is on route back to Cape Town. It was great to see the seals and penguins! The scenery was also very beautiful! Highly recommended!
It was a wonderful day going all around...
Bast, Apr 2018
It was a wonderful day going all around the Peninsula. The sights were amazing all day long. Seeing the seals and the penguins was awesome. Little recommendation: let customers cycle all the way down to the picnic area as it goes down after all the small hills! Super fun day overall

Alastair_M, Jan 2018
A full packed day with plenty of sights and activities. It was great to see what was just outside Cape Town and the trip was full value for money. Diane was a terrific guide and made us a fabulous lunch also.
