A MUST DO WHEN IN CAPE TOWN
THE TOUR GUIDE WAS FANTASTIC
An excellent tour. Our guide was Zunaid Arnold. We were fortunate to have 'Z' take us on the Robben Island and Cape Town City tour the day before. The continuity was a bonus as we already knew each other and could carry on the information sharing without repetition. Doing both tours consecutively and with the same guide is recommended.
We were picked up at our hotel. We drove through Cape Town city early Sunday morning when there was no traffic and headed down the west coast to Cape Point. The scenery and views were amazing. We stopped for pictures, morning coffee and pastry, brief dip in the Atlantic chilly and had the option of visiting Seal Island.
At Cape Point, we took the funicular up to the top and then walked down all the way to the beach, The walking part is optional but we chose this over the Seal Island option. The views were stunning. Baboons and antelopes wandering about. Takes about an hour to walk down, moderate difficulty, uneven surfaces and good shoes are recommended.
We then visited Boulder Beach and saw penguins. 'Z' recommended the public beach as the penguins are much closer and free ranging! After seaside lunch in Simonstown, we went to the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens - past the peak at this time of year but still amazing assortment of plants and flowers.
An excellent tour. Good value. We felt our experience was enhanced by having an excellent guide re knowledge and personality.
