Fun, informative, interesting and professionally executed.
Crosby_H, Dec 2022
Cornelia was superb. She drove, she picked up the participants at 6 locations (without GPS). She provided information and history and cultural commentary. And she was fun.
Half a good tour but the false advertising is the review
Jeremy_J, Mar 2022
This is a mixed review, our driver/guide was very friendly and full of information and the cape and the penguins were also great. However, we did not get the cake and tea, we did not stop at the Rhodes memorial, and we did not stop at the Botanical Gardens. All three of these thing were not only in the description but in the video. The gardens are the main picture and one of the reasons I booked. They decided to give me a ten dollar refund which doesn't cover a fourth of the expenses I know have to spend to visit the Rhodes and Botanical Gardens on my own time.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Good afternoon, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. The itinerary of this tour was changed effective 01 November 2021. Although the actual tour itinerary was updated and contained the correct information, we didn’t realize that a part of the tour description was incorrect and that an image and video were still visible from the old itinerary. Once you brought that to our attention, we issued you with a 50% refund and we removed the incorrect image. We are in the process of removing the incorrect video as well. We do apologize for the inconvenience and can assure you that it was never our intention to feature misleading information.
Good staff - very punctual

Great mix of activities for the day!
Reena_K, Mar 2020
We enjoyed the hike by the lighthouse, the lunch spot and exploring the beautiful coastal town, and seeing the penguins. We also enjoyed having time to DIY explore the gardens. We wished we could get closer to the penguins since we had seen pictures of other tours that were on the beach with them. Overall, we would recommend this tour for all ages!

Cape peninsula tour
CaptainK, Mar 2020
Tour was OK but very rushed. Wasn't offered boat trip to seal island or walk about Hout Bay. Had lunch in Simon's Town which was very good but again no time to see the town or walk about. Chapman's peak drive was fine but very rushed. It really was just a drive around. While it was OK and I can say yes I have been around the Cape Peninsula it really was not worth the money. Much better hiring a car or maybe use some other tour company.

Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town
Sylvia3144, Oct 2019
This trip is a must do when visiting Cape Town. It is a full day excursion, but, it is well worth spending a day booking it. A beautiful drive along the coastline, stopping off along the way for photos, interesting landscapes along the way to see, finally entering the Park, you stop at the Cape of Good Hope where you have the best photo op by the sign to show you were at the most southerly point in South Africa. Then to the top of the mountain on the vehicular to see the lighthouse, more photo ops from there. Then a stop at The Boulders to see the little penguins on the beach, and, pretty close up views of them for pictures. Lots of local artisans selling their goods at this stop, musicians, dancers, etc., are also there. Very picturesque, and, interesting day, for sure. A MUST DO FOR SURE!

This tour allowed us to see numerous, amazing sites. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. We got enough time at each location without feeling rushed.
Good Experience.Gorgeous Views. Ashley was great.
emanuelw220, Jul 2019
We booked this tour for a Friday. Ashley showed promptly at 8AM, picked up the other four passengers (total of 6). Ashley was well-read and provided useful historical information about all the described tour sites. He was extremely hospitable. All-in-all a good tour. I would recommend. Ashley has a good voice, safe driver and shares information without being too talkative. He strikes the right balance.

Great day! Weather was perfect and we saw so much ~ not a wasted minute. Loved the penguins and the fur seals but then wildlife is my passion. Lunch at the restaurant in the picturesque town (I forget the name) was delicious.

A MUST tour when in Cape Town...You get to see all the best sights with a guide that knows the ins and outs of each place which can be difficult to park on your own. The guide we had was amazing in general. She was so incredibly knowledgeable and we learned SOOOOO much!!!

Robert_M, Mar 2018
This tour is a 'must do'. The guide was excellent and gave a knowledgeable commentary throughout. The pace of the tour was just right with sensible breaks during the day. The scenery was spectacular along the coastal route to the Cape of Good Hope and then back to the gardens in Cape Town. A small group of 7 people was perfect. I will visit Cape Town again.....I just love this place.
