Excellent day trip! Our guide Candice and driver Mabee filled our day with delight! It was a full day of stops, pictures, fun facts and even history. There was never a quiet moment as we were always looking at something or hearing about something! Plenty of time was given at all the stops to explore, including an hour with the penguins! I would highly recommend for a day trip of the Cape!

An amazing full day tour of the Cape. The driver Mabee and guide Candice were amazing hosts. Throughout the whole day they provided fun facts and history about Capetown. Took us to all the sites and gave us plenty of time to explore at each stop! Even pointed out wildlife along the way and let us stop for numerous pictures! Wonderful day well spent, would highly recommend.
