The excursion was a small group of 7 people and took about 4 hours to get to Cape Agulhas from Cape Town. We had a nice coastal drive for part of the way. The stop at Cape Agulhas was fun. When else can you get be at the southern most tip of Africa and be able to put one foot in the Indian Ocean and one foot in the Atlantic Ocean. It was ruggedly beautiful. After photos and getting our feet wet, we drove up to the light house and climbed to the top for beautiful views. Shortly, after that, we drove to a quaint seafood shack for delicious Hake and chips. On the drive back, we stopped at a Dutch village where all were white with thatched roofs.
We enjoyed this all day tour. We left Cape Town and toured the shore line and also saw some
of the country side, since a wild fire made us redirect our route. South Africa is a beautiful country.
I got some beautiful pictures of the Ocean, as we were able to stop and get out and take pictures.
Only thing I was unhappy with, the guide stuck us with his lunch bill. He just walked out and we had to
pay for his lunch. I would have gladly paid for it if he hadn't blindsided us with it.
I am so glad I took this tour. We visited so many great spots, and the scenery was just spectacular. It includes the REAL location where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet - Cape Agulhas, which is also the southernmost tip of Africa. We were picked up at our hotel at a reasonable hour not too early and headed towards the cape. The tour offers many opportunities to stop and take pictures. We ate lunch at a local fish shop, and had perfectly fried hake and chips. We also stopped at Hermanus, the pretty town known for whale watching in the summer, and Betty's Bay to see the penguins. The coastline along the way, which finished up along the Strand and False Bay was amazing - you could tell that a major geological event had once occurred in this area understatement. If you want to see earth's amazing beauty and visit places of geological significance , this tour is well worth the time and investment.
Our tour guide Derek was amazing! Very knowledgable about the areas, took us everywhere we wanted to go and was the sweetest man ever! We went to to go the cape, play in the water, go up the lighthouse, walk around hermanus, check out a local bakery and even see the Penguins at Betty's bay! amazing!
Our tour guide Emmanuel is very knowledgeable and took us to several interesting spots around the Cape, based on our interests a shipwreck, ocean marker, an old lighthouse. Recommended as an item in every Capetown visitor's bucket list.
