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 (From 1 November entrance for own account). 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

I totally enjoyed my day. Our tour guide, Bill was so friendly, funny and helpful. He made all the group relaxed and we all learn so much about the history. I would recommend Day Trippers to all travellers visiting South Africa. - Alexis McGhie

This was an excellent trip. We did & saw a lot but it didn't feel like too much. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who wants to see the peninsula & explore the Cape. - David Sugarman

The guide was so very good and the route was astonishing. A must do when you are in cape town - Marc Hinkel

Our Cape Point and Peninsula Tour was amazing! Unfortunately, I have already forgot our driver/tour guide's name, but he was one of the best entertainer I've ever seen, also very informative, told us a lot of interesting stuff about the place, the people, etc. I would absolutely recommend this tour, and, especially this company, to any of my friends visiting Cape Town. I'm also very thankful to the reservation department for making it possible to book and pay for a tour that started the next day, and at 6 pm in the evening! That's how business is done! Thank you guys, it was a pleasure! - Viktor Gordienko

We had a great time with our guide (Pable? Paulo? Rodrigo? - anyway, he had a Spanish name). Always in a good mood, he not only shares his deep knowledge in historical, geographical and botanical issues with his group, he is even happy about every question coming from his customers. Last but not least, he offered a very tasty lunch. - Babette Ney
