It was a very nice trip. Everything as described. From Cape Town about 50 minutes to Boulders Beach, where we had two hours of free time (including lunch). The tickets could be bought right on the bus, which is great because you no longer have to queue at the ticket office. Then we went on to Cape Point, where we had enough time to walk up. Unfortunately it rained that day, but we all got a free rain poncho. Then we went on foot or by bus (everyone as he wants) to the Cape of Good Hope. There is only a short photo stop, a few minutes longer would have been nice. The tour guides are very nice and have a lot of information in their luggage. Our guide spoke almost every language. The only negative: The description says that you will be picked up and dropped off from the hotel. This is not true! You have to go to a meeting point in the city. Which is okay, but unfortunately the description says otherwise...

This tour should definitely be on your list when you come to Cape Town. The service provided was extremely good. The walking tour was extremely enjoyable. On your way to the Cape of Good Hope, you have the opportunity to see many creatures living here. Special thanks to Charles, Kyle and the driver. Charles is the main factor in making the trip so much fun!

Very nice day trip! We didn't realize at first that this trip was with the same company as the red tourist bus, but that was no problem. The guides were super friendly and had a lot of funny and informative facts to tell during the bus ride. We were given enough time to explore Boulders Beach on our own and a lunch reservation had already been made in case we wanted to use it. At Cape Point we also had enough time to go up to the lighthouse and then we went together to Cape of Good Hope. The hike was still quite exciting so you could also go down by bus. The guides offered to take pictures and entertained us well! Despite the fact that the bus did not want to start after Boulders Beach and we had to wait 45 minutes for a new one, we had enough time everywhere and we had a great day!
