Our driver was very knowledgeable, but a little short sometimes. Really good trip though - covered lots of sights in one day with a lovely mixed group of people. Extremely reasonable price!

This was one of the best tours I've ever taken! We hit so many stops - Seal Island, Cape of Good Hope, Simon's Town, Boulder Beach, and the Botanical Gardens - all in one day! Our tour guide Elaine was the funniest, spunkiest, and kindest person I met in Cape Town and made the tour so much more enjoyable. This tour was worth the cost and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in hitting a lot of sites in one day.

Our guide on this trip was called Rodney, who was very knowledgeable made sure we got to see plenty of wonderful places and at all times ensured that my partner and I got the best out of the trip. At the end he even made sure that we visited Kirstenbosch Gardens. During our trip we visited Hout Bay and seal island, drove on Chapmans Peak Drive, did the funicular railway up to Cape Point, went to Cape of Good Hope, had lunch at a lovely restaurant in Simons Town by the harbour, went to Boulders Beach and Kirstenbosch Gardens. Would definitely go with Springbock tours via Viator again, ended the tour with some wonderful memories.
