Full description
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.

Ein absolute toller Tagesausflug mit unserem Fahrer Kevin. Wir wurden pünktlich am Hotel abgeholt und waren eine Gruppe von 8 Personen. Zu den genannten Sehenswürdigkeiten der Tour haben wir an vielen Aussichtspunkten angehalten und konnten wunderschöne Fotos der tollen Landschaft machen, haben eine Straußenfarm besucht und und und. Gegen 18 Uhr waren wir überglücklich zurück im Hotel. Absolute Empfehlung.

Ich war am Anfang skeptisch ob so eine Tour etwas für uns ist. Rodney holte uns pünktlich vom Hotel ab und die Laune stieg. Ein netter Kerl sehr hilfsbereit kennt sich aus u zuvorkommend. Unsere 5 köpfige Gruppe war super. Wir hatten viel Spaß. Wir haben alles gesehen und hatten genug Zeit. Es war der schönste Tag in unserem Urlaub. Danke

Die Tour ist wirklich klasse! Mein besonderes Highlight war Cape Point, der Blick von oben war einfach traumhaft! Das Fischrestaurant am Boulders Beach ist ein absolutes Muss - von Fisch, über Burger, bis Pasta - super lecker! Kleines Manko: Unser Guide war leider sehr redebedürftig, sodass meine Freundin und ich nach einer Gewissen Zeit genervt waren.
