You’ll be picked up at your Cape Town accommodation in the morning by a qualified tour guide/driver in a luxury minibus, and taken on an all-inclusive, full-day Cape Peninsula tour.

Drive along the scenic coastal route with the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other, and see what makes this coastline so special. Pass through Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, and Llandudno beaches along Chapman's Peak drive and enjoy a photo stop at Maiden's Cove.

In Hout Bay, you’ll have the option of taking a boat to Seal Island to get a closer look at the seal population (not included in the tour price).

Our guide, Bidi, aka King Arthur, was excellent. He explained everything in detail, just the right amount. The tour was very extensive, which required all of us on the van to respect everyone, but remember that we had a lot to cover. King Arthur did an excellent job. Do not hesitate to book this is tour. Thanks.

Everything was great, but you should know that you’ll see a lot! And that’s great, but I found everything to be too fast paced, but then again, by the time we returned it was almost 7pm! The trip is ideal for those who want to get the most of of the Cape peninsula in one day. We, on the other hand, wanted to spend more time at the cape itself, and the 40-50 mins allocated to that didn’t feel like enough. Especially given the hefty R360 fee. It’s an easy 1.5h-2.5h to explore. Anyway, our guide David was very cool and knowledgeable and we enjoyed the trip

The Cape of Good Hope & Penguins Small Group Tour was absolutely amazing. Tresor is a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable. He took us to Clifton Fourth Beach where we had a stunning view of the Twelve Apostel's Mountain Range, to Hout Bay for a boat trip to Seal Island, to the Noordhoek Farm Village, along the Chapman's Peak Drive, to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, to Simon's Town and the Penguins colony at Boulders Beach and to the Muizenberg Shark Spotters. At the end of the tour we did a short stop at Bo Kaap. Tresor took photos of those who wanted and remembered all of our names in no time. I had a wonderful day and would love to take another tour with him.
