Cape Peninsula & Boulders Beach Private Day Tour

1. Cape Peninsula & Boulders Beach Private Day Tour

First, make a quick stop in the heart of Cape Town city center to discover the colorful community known as Bo-kaap. Then, head straight for the coastline. Pass by affluent suburbs with some of the best beaches near the city, stopping for photos at Camps Bay. Proceed on towards Hout Bay seated in between gigantic mountains and the Atlantic.  Enjoy an optional scenic 40-minute round-trip boat ride to Seal Island. Resume your tour via the world-famous Chapman's Peak Drive. Marvel at this road engineering feat as you wind over the edge of the mountains; this scenic drive is not for the faint-hearted. Next, arrive at the Cape of Goodhope Nature Reserve just after midday. Discover the rich plant life of the Cape, early human history, maritime history and if you are lucky you might be able to have a mini safari.  Reach the southwesternmost point of the continent - the Cape of Good Hope - and take a photo with the sign. Hiking is recommended but no swimming because of sheer riptides. Carry on to Cape Point and walk for 20 minutes one way up to a historic lighthouse. You could also take a funicular at your own account if you are not in the mood for walking. Feel free to stop for lunch at the world-class seafood restaurant with a sea view or grab a quick bite in the food shop next door. Next, embark on a journey to Simon's Town for a special date with the endangered African penguins at Boulders Beach. Spend about 45 minutes at the penguin colony before you head back to Cape Town along the coastline. Pass through the quaint towns on this historically known Millionaire's Mile. Hear fun facts about the navy and Just Nuisance - the only dog in the world to have been an able seaman. Finally, discover Kalk Bay and Muizenberg Beach, the surfer's corner before returning to the starting point.

The tour is really great! My special highlight was Cape Point, the view from above was simply fantastic! The fish restaurant on Boulders Beach is an absolute must - from fish to burgers to pasta - super delicious! Small drawback: our guide was unfortunately very needy, so that my girlfriend and I were annoyed after a certain time.

The guides name was Rodney. He was a perfect guide and i wish i could be guided by Rodney in other occasions. He was absolutly nice, helpful, interested. Thanks a lot to Rodney and the company he is working for!!!!!

The tour took place in a small group, punctual collection, the very courteous and extremely well informed guide Albert made the trip a very nice and interesting experience. Recommended at any time!
