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

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

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!
