Such an amazing day filled with beautiful views, a lot of animals and extensive information about South Africa and Cape of Good Hope. Charles was a wealth of knowledge and such a fun tour guide who pointed out all the best spots on the tour. We would highly recommend this tour!

Great day trip from Cape Town. Comfortable double decker bus with air con. Two hours at Cape Point, with an option to hike to the beach. It is long enough to walk to the lighthouse and back, but if you want to walk right to the end of the track then there is just enough time and not quite enough time to grab food, luckily we had some snacks with us. There was some confusion when two passengers missed the pick up and we had to go back to collect them. I don't think the guides were clear about how many were doing the hike and how many were catching the bus. This led to us being late to the penguin colony and this was quite rushed as a result. I would have liked more time at the penguin colony as there was a reasonable walk from where the coach parked and it is busy at the penguin colony. We went on a Sunday, it might be quieter during the week. Good value for money and easy to book.

Great tour. We travelled in a closed top bus, wifi and toilets available on there. Our guides were very informative, friendly and funny. We did think about hiring a car and doing the tour ourselves but so glad we booked the tour. We did a hike from Cape Point to Cape of Good Hope that we didn't know about and probably wouldn't have got to do if we did the tour on our own. Would definitely recommend.
