Full description
After pickup from your hotel in Cape Town, the first stop on this 10-hour small-group tour is Maidens Cove. There, soak up great views of Camps Bay Beach, 12 Apostles Mountain Range, and Lion's Head. Continue along Victoria Road, passing exclusive residential areas en route to Chapman's Peak Drive for 2 photo stops. Upon arrival at the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, your guide will provide an overview of the park. Board a funicular to Cape Point Lighthouse or take a 15-minute walk up that passes a spectacular viewpoint if you prefer. Next, visit the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony to see and learn about the sea birds. After marveling at the main colony of African penguins, stop to enjoy lunch at Simon's Town harbor (at your own expense), and admire the 18th-century buildings. On the drive back, stop to see the shark spotters, who help prevent sharks attacks at Muizenberg Beach. You will be taken back to the pickup location or with the option to change the drop-off point.

We had an amazing day discovering the Cape Peninsula with Ray who is the best tour guide I’ve ever met. He was very informative and interesting and took us to an extraordinary beach at the Cape of Good Hope which we would never have found ourselves. The coffee and lunch stops were well timed and in nice places. We were the only people on this tour and very fortunate that the Cape ara was not busy so there were no queues for any of the attractions.

Felix was honestly THE BEST GUIDE we could have asked for. He is incredibly knowledgeable and is truly SUCH a delight to have done with! He even went out of his way to reserve a really nice, sea-facing restaurant for us with beautiful ocean views. The tour itself is beautiful but it was truly spectacular because of Felix and his role in the tour. I would recommend him to ANYONE looking for an amazing experience :)

The trip was cool. At first, it was cancelled because I was only the one person, but than luckily two persons booked it as well. So it was only three of us. We had a very nice trip with great guide. Everything was prepared professionally. I enjoyed very beautiful views of Clifton Beach, the boat trip, the seals, the Cape of Good Hope and Boulder’s Beach. In addition, it was very comfortable to drive a Mercedes C250.
