What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Cape of Good Hope Tour from Cape Town

Penguins at Boulders Beach Simons Town

After being picked up at your hotel around 9am, hop in the comfortable car to begin this private 8-hour tour. Get a great view of Table Bay with Robben Island in the distance and make a quick stop at Maiden's Cove to get a glance of the Twelve Apostles and the picture-worthy view of Camps Bay. 

At Hout Bay, consider the optional excursion of taking the ferry to Duiker Island to get an up-close and personal view of hundreds of Cape Fur seals. If not, continue on to Chapman's Peak Drive.

We had a wonderful day tour to Cape Point with Fanny. She is a font of information and narrated our drive with interesting facts. We packed a lot into one day: scenic stops, penguin viewing, walking an outdoor market or two, a lovely lunch at the Black Marlin, and the trip to Cape Point. The views along our drive were also spectacular -- ostriches included!

The driver made all the difference, we thoroughly enjoyed his company, he tried his best under the circumstances that the Cape Town Peninsula bide race was on the same day. But he still was able to make it happen for us.

A personal tour for my son and I to the Cape of Good hope and Cape Point. Our guide, Ryan was extremely knowledgeable and added an extra dimension to the day long tour.
The visit to seal island was an interesting addition as were the African penguins.
All in all this was an extremely good value and interesting experience showing the wider environment for any holiday to Cape Town

Excellent driver/guide. He knew his stuff. Made reservations for us 4 at a great restaurant on Cape Point. We enjoyed his commentaries and the fact that he was well versed in the towns to and from Cape Town and would give us a heads up prior to coming upon a particularly interesting photo site.
