Full description
Discover the south-western tip of the Cape Peninsula and marvel at some of the most spectacular views in the world. The drive from Cape Town passes steep mountains, secluded coves, and sweeping stretches of beach. Your full-day tour begins with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburbs of Sea Point and Camps Bay, where you’ll have spectacular views of the Table Mountain range. Continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, one of Cape Town's best-kept secrets. Enjoy an optional short boat trip to Duiker Island, time permitting, to see the Cape fur seals that inhabit the island. Next is the Cape Point Nature Reserve, covering an area of more than 17,300 acres. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife, including baboons, rhebok, Cape mountain zebra, bontebok, and the elusive eland. It is alsonone of the world's largest breeding grounds for tortoises. You’ll see the spot where, as per legend, the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and feel the brisk wind that is said to have curative powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, you'll return to Cape Town by way of Simon's Town, with a stop to visit the penguin colony at Boulders Beach. Stop at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens for a short walking tour, before passing the University of Cape Town, the Rhodes Memorial, and the Groote Schuur Hospital.

Admission to Boulders Beach is unfortunately not included. A big minus point because the tour is relatively expensive for South African conditions. Unfortunately Robben Island was not visited because Brian said we didn't have time for that but we paid for it ... An hour longer the tour with a stop in kalk bay would be great.

Burkhardt our guide, born in Switzerland, was a blast, we had a lot of fun with him. There was a lot of useful and entertaining information about the country and its people! The weather also played along. Those who are not completely lame on foot can climb the mountain to the lighthouse at Cape Point in max. 15 minutes. Look quietly into every niche. Better take off your sunglasses and hats in strong winds. The baboons are really sneaky, never eat openly outside, they steal everything away !!!

Way better than expected

Great value for money. Picked me up at my private place; excellent and lovely guide (Elane), only 7 people in the group (one person didn't show up), almost no waiting anywhere (very lucky as going out of Cape Point Natural Park there was already a huge line). You have enough time (but not too long) to see the things mentioned in the description (Cape Point Sign; Lighthouse, Boulders Beach) even on your own. However, the restaurant at Simon's town was ok, but not cheap or something special.
