Hout Bay: Duiker Island Seal Colony Cruise
- Duration: 1 hour
The tour was good although there were too many stops so that too little time was given to each of the places we visited. I would have left the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden out and given more time for the lunch break. The stop at the Cape Point Lighthouse was too short and the bar there too crowded. The driver/tour guide Basil was extremely nice and told us lots of interesting stories about the country. He is a wonderful guide with a vast knowledge and a great attitude. The company GYG gave us 2 different pick-up times for the excursion: 7-8 am and 8-9 am. Finally the driver came at 8:45 am. He said he had been given that pick-up time. The evening before the trip I texted GYG about the pick-up time as we were confused and they confirmed that it would be 7-8 am, which finally was not correct. The same thing happened two times for two different excursions during our stay, GYG gave us 2 different times. GYG, please be more precise with the pick-up times! It can get very annoying.
Best tour ever. Nothing to complain about. Our guide Armand was very informative and I sat in the front seat having a great time pretending I was his assistant. We were 3 persons and all satisfied. Because we hadn't been able to go to the Table mountains before due to weather Armand dropped us off there when returning to CT. We are soo happy we didn't chose a cheaper alternative in a big bus. Worth every rand.
Call or WhatsApp the number provided the day before travel. Our email said 6am-7am and we got picked up at 9:15am. Bruce, our guide was very knowledgeable. Weather can change and can be cooler and windy at the cape point so would advise bringing a jacket. Great tour!
Everything was great and our guide was fantastic. My only issue was that Africa Adventures sent me a voucher which instructed us be ready at 7 am, which we were, but in reality the guide was instructed to collect us at 8:20 am.
Excellent. Armand was brilliant - funny and knowledgeable. Took the trouble to learn our names Only 10 in our group. Comfortable bus. Punctual. Interesting. Fun.
