What people are saying about Simon's Town
We had a great day with our guide who was knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery and views from Chapmans Peak and the drive to Cape Point was fantastic and the boat trip to the fur seals was a nice extra. We also had an outstanding seafood lunch at the Seaforth restaurant at Boulders Bay, though this was much later than usual due to all the things we packed into the day. The only disappointment we that we ran so late we didn’t have time to take the penguins tour at Boulders Bay and had to settle for the public boardwalk which was still ok with close proximity to penguins but we had really set our hearts on the beach front walk here because of our children. Managing the time better would have avoided this disappointment but overall still a recommended tour with much to enjoy.
It was a straightforward process to book our places for this tour before we left the UK. I then emailed with a query regarding the pick up point. I was very impressed with the swift response and the reassurance the email provided. The tour was well organised and punctual. Seeing the penguins was a highlight and we particularly enjoyed the guided walk at Cape Point, enjoying stunning scenery. A brilliant day. Thank you!
The guides don't stop talking and giving very interesting & curious info about South Africa during the whole trip. Cape Point has really stunning views and the experience with the baboons is unique, as with the penguins as well. I recommend it with no doubt.
Mucky has done such a great job of providing interesting information (not just about the route but about SA in general), pointing out things on the way - never in a boring lecturing style but rather in a rather entertaining and easy to follow way.
I definitely recommend to visit the spots and we had such a pleasant time with Chris our guide. We did the one way trip which was very pleasant but if I could go back I would have done the visit in 2 days to have maybe the time for a hike.
