  • What You Can Expect

    Leave your Cape Town hotel by air-conditioned minibus and head south along the Cape Peninsula to Hout Bay – a coastal neighborhood that sits roughly halfway between Cape Town and Cape Point. Now popular as an upmarket seaside resort, Hout Bay is a fishing village and has retained its friendly, small-town appeal. Enjoy time at leisure here – perhaps exploring independently or visiting nearby Duiker Island (own expense) to see its colony of gorgeous Cape fur seals.

    Continue via Chapmans Peak to the southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula at the far end of Table Mountain National Park to reach Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. With roughly 1.5 hours at leisure here, you can explore on your own or perhaps visit one of the reserve’s cafes for lunch (own expense). Time permitting, stroll down to Cape Point to see the actual tip of the peninsula where the Atlantic and Indian oceans collide.

    On the way back to Cape Town, visit Simon’s Town on the False Bay Coast for a look around and head to Boulder’s Beach (entry at own expense) to see the town’s cute colony of African penguins.

    Return to your Cape Town hotel via the pretty towns of Fish Hoek and Muizenberg with your final stop at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens -- set at the foot of Table Mountain -- and explore its stunning grounds with your guide. Kirstenbosch grows vegetation and fauna that are totally unique to the Cape Floral Region and the site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. See the rare plants and trees on a walk around the Western’s Capes very own botanical wonderland.

This tour is a great way to see Cape Town, we had a great day and were very happy with After reading reviews some of the bad reviews about our Guide on Trip Advisor, I have to say we had a different the opposite experience.

Hout Bay, stop 1. Our group decided to opt-in to the ferry to see the Seals note- this is quite a choppy ride, not for people who get motion sickness When we arrived back to the marina Rodney, very calmly let our group know that we needed to get out of Hout Bay immediately. He noticed a demonstration was about to take place. These demonstrations turn violent quickly and they block the roads by burning tires to keep the police out. He proactively moved the bus towards the exit of the bay and warned other tour guides to gather their people up as well. We were the last van to sneak by the blockade before it was lit on fire.
Due to Rodneys vigilance and experience, he was able to keep all 8 of us out of harms way and I cannot say how much I appreciate that.
I would highly recommend this tour, but I would request Hout Bay be skipped as demonstrations happen there frequently! Other than that first stop, no complaints about the rest of the day!

It is the best way to see the Cape Peninsula. It is just so beautiful! What I like most about this tour is that we were just a small group in a van, so its easier to transfer from one place to another. We also had a good lunch at this restaurant with a lovely view of the boats and the bay. Highly recommended.
