nice trip. We went to boulders beach to see the penguins, then we went to cape point. We did a small hike there to cape of good hope. We had a good guide, he explained a lot of things while driving. The Entrance to boulders beach( penguins) and to cape point/cape of good hope is sepereate, so eventually you will have to pay more for the tour.

We had the pleasure to travel to Cape Point with Charles our wonderfully delighting tour guide. Saw Simon‘s Town and the penguins along the way and had a small little hike to Cape of Good Hope at the end of our journey. We wholeheartedly recommend everyone in the area to try the red bus and the cape explorer tour as well.

It was a long tiring day but with beautiful places. I would recommend taking Table Mountain if you are traveling with kids. Now there was an extra stop at Muizenberg. Not indicated. We were on the road for 10 hours. Could have been arranged a little better. But considering what we wanted to see. Penguins very special as well as the Cape.
