Cape Point and Peninsula Tour

Cape Town

Activity Description

Where do the two oceans meet? And why is it called “the Cape of Good Hope”? Join us on a journey of discovery as we explore the splendour of the Cape Peninsula in Cape Town. We follow the Atlantic Seaboard, past Clifton & Camps Bay, to the fishing hamlet of Hout Bay for an optional boat cruise to Duiker Island to experience thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural habitat (R65). We continue along the scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive to Simon’s Town to meet up with a colony of rare Jackass Penguins at Boulders Beach. You would’ve noticed the bicycles behind the bus by now! we swap four wheels for two to get some fresh air into our lungs and to build up a healthy appetite.

Our legendary scrumptious picnic lunch will then be served somewhere in the reserve… maybe at one of the stunning beaches! Are you brave enough to challenge the Atlantic?
After lunch we hike to the top lighthouse at Cape Point and then to the Cape of Good Hope. Both hikes offer breathtaking vistas and REAL fresh air! We return home via Scarborough and Kommetjie.

Customer Reviews

Excellent and original tour. Our guide was as professionel as friendly. He pampered the group from the begining to the end. - CHARLES


Really enjoyed this tour, it covered the highlights of the cape peninsula and we were lucky enough to be a small group so we were able to stop off at various places along the way to get photos. We saw some interesting wildlife and the scenery was unbelievable. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some great info along the way. The only part that was overwhelmingly touristy was the seal trip at the beginning, the tourists on that boat were doing my head in! However, this part is optional and you can walk along the beach instead - but then you don't get to see the seals! All in all a great day - L-town


A Brilliant day. Fantastic guide Bill, Well worth the money. Memories for life. Thank you. - Penny Triggs


Excelente! Our guide did and excellent job! Best guide in my entire trip in South Africa, full of knowledge! - Emanuel Marinaro


Great experience, our guide took us around all of the peninsula and provided so much interesting and detailed history of South Africa, the region, events in colonial Europe. It was very informative, timely and entertaining. I found the lunch and activities to be really good too. The weather we encountered was not ideal due to the really strong winds but some of the schedule was accommodated to that as best as possible. The only thing I wish we did was go to Kirstenbosch botanical gardens but that wasn't part of this tour. - Ash Siddiqui
