Full description
Get picked up at 8:00 AM from your centrally located Cape Town city hotel or lodging in order to start the Cape Peninsula Tour. Travel around the beautiful Atlantic coastline, past the world-famous Clifton and Camps Bay Beaches, Bakoven, Llandudno and through Hout Bay.  Continue along the world-renowned magnificent Chapman’s Peak Drive towards Kommetjie, a great surf spot, the Slangkop Lighthouse, past Misty Cliffs and continuing through the quaint seaside village of Scarborough until heading to Cape of Good Hope in the Table Mountain National Park. Be served complimentary tea/ coffee and biscuits at the much photographed Cape of Good Hope sign-board before driving further to eventually hop onto the Flying Dutchman Funicular (cost included) to go up to the incredibly beautiful viewing point around the base of the old Cape Point lighthouse. Your next exciting stop will be Boulders Beach, a popular tourist destination, to view a colony of African penguins that settled there in 1982. Boulders Beach is one of the few sites where the penguins can be observed at close range, wandering freely in a protected natural environment. Boardwalks will take you to within a few yards of the birds.  Lunch will normally be at Seaforth near Boulders. Their fish and chips is always a winner, but so is the rest of the menu. Then it's through Glen Cairn, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and over Boyes Drive for a panoramic view of False Bay, where you may be lucky enough to spot sharks or whales on a quick stop to the Shark Spotters lookout. Not far from here you reach the Constantia Valley Wine Route, one of 9 routes in South Africa. You will be treated to a tasting of 5 fine wines at one of the finely selected estates on route. Then for a scenic drive back to your hotel past Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens which you can visit at your own leisure by taking the city sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus or an Uber from the city. This is a full day tour and you won't get back to your hotel until around 5:00 PM but it will be the most memorable day of your visit to Cape Town.

We had the pleasure of Ian as our guide around Cape Point who was very knowledgeable and personable. As I was keen to see the penguins at Boulder’s Beach, Ian flexibly altered our itinerary so that we could see them first. His vast knowledge covered the array of different wildlife, history, points of interest and of course wine too! This he shared in a really engaging and interesting way. Ian’s passion and enthusiasm was evident with him joining us in taking photos and kindly offering to snap some souvenir shots for us - something we’d forget otherwise. Our African Moon adventure out with Ian exceeded our expectations and we would strongly recommend a trip with him. If we’re fortunate enough to return to South Africa, we would definitely book another trip with him. Thank you Ian for filling our day with incredible memories!

Excellent choice, wonderful time.

Excellent choice, wonderful time. Our guide, Ian , from African Moon Adventures had a well planned itinerary, and was personable and informative throughout. The tea and biscuits at one of the stops was a very nice touch. Our only regret was that we did not discover African Moon Adventures earlier in our stay so that we could have booked other trips with them.

This tour was just amazing. The guide Ian, who is a local, was very friendly, respectful and told us a lot about south african history, tradition and culture. He fulfilled all our wished and stopped everywhere we wanted to. We definitely would book this tour again with him. Thanks a lot Ian!
