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 (own account). 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.

This is a great way to experience the Cape Peninsula by means of modern transport and traditional (bicycle) this is a great way to experience the best of both worlds. Why sit in the car all day when you can get out in the fresh air and ride a bike!! approximatley 8-15km (45 mins) cycling.

Customer Reviews

Very good tour, which covers all the essentials with a very good and nice tour guide. - Rada CHEHLAROVA

I am so pleased I chose this company to work with. I had limited time, no car and wanted a full day peninsula tour. I saw everything I wanted to, and the guide was the best. I had expected to bike, but instead chose to spend more time hiking and thoroughly loved it. Excellent place for lunch included! - Donna Hoffman

A great day out with lots of fun getting to know Pedro and other members of the trip. Also, Pedro is a great professional host and a happy, pleasant, comedy, fun guy. Had some good laughs during the day particularly when Pedro and guest were dispatched to deal with "Shoe-gate" A lady guest misplaced her shoes on the beach and could not find them, all to much hilarity among the rest of the group guests as we wondered how she could have lost hers shoes and also how she would cope for the rest of the trip in bare feet! Bearing in mind we still had the climb to the lighthouse to do! Not to worry, up stepped the hero's of the day, Pedro and his guest companion, who meticulously combed the beach looking for the missing shoes, whilst the rest of us guests did our bit, by looking on and cracking jokes at the poor lady's expense. No harm done though, as the shoes were eventually found and the lady in question was a good sport as she joined in the laughter. "Shoe-gate" concluded, we carried on with the rest of the trip and the shoe jokes til the end! A great time had by all, many thanks Pedro and the rest of the fun group for the great trip and the entertainment along the way. Cheers Tony - Anthony Kemp

Thank you for a very nice day, Karen - Karen Krauss

Unbelievably awesome. William was our guide and did a great job. He didn’t just drive us to our biking and hiking locations, his narrative was also very informative. Three of us took a wrong left. William had to come looking for us which delayed his timing, but he still remained very relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyed and would certainly recommend. - Kathy & Warren Eddy
