Had a great time…got to see Robben Island, penguins at Boulders Beach, Cape Point and took a scenic drive on Chapman’s Peak. A must see for every visitor to Cape Town. Guide made the experience unforgettable for us!

Keep a look out for the weather. The morning we went up was bright and clear and the views were stunning. Unfortunately, it can cloud over quite quickly. Prebooking the cable car tickets saves time.
