Experience of a life time
Sep 2021 • Family
We had a beautiful scenic drive and experience of Cape Point with my family. A special thanks to the jolly driver, Hansie and tour guide, Rico and his entertaining commentries, who made it an absolute bliss to be on the bus. And also guided us carefully on the mountain hiking. Everything ran smoothly without a glitch and I would definitely come back and do this again

Day well spent!!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
What an amazing day we had! I think we did everything we hoped to do and more, our driver was patient and drove well, the views on the road were spectacular, Charles was very knowledgeable and friendly, you can tell how much he loves his work, the penguins were hilarious and indifferent to us which allowed us to observe them. Thank you for a great day.

Worth every penny
Sep 2021 • Couples
I did the Cape Point Tour with Bramm (?) as our Tourgide and to sum up: it was awesome, worth every penny and definetely a must-do here in Cape Town. Our Tourguide was not only extremely funny and knowledgable, he also made sure that everyone felt welcome and included. The tour itself is breathtaking, the 40min walk to the Cape of good hope highly recommended.
One of the greatest experience I had in Cape Town!😍

Great tour
Sep 2021 • Friends
This tour is really worthy doing! It was the best experience I had in cape town. The views are breath taking, there are a lot of different animals to see. The tour guide Brahm, knows everything about the city (history, biology, curiosities...), he's a very passionate person and made the day really special, with all the informations that he shared.

Silly penguin fun
Jul 2021
I was in town for a business trip, but just managed to squeeze in a trip here. As advertised, the beach is covered with penguins, which, while not friendly (which I didn't expect them to be) are really surprisingly indifferent to you walking around. The water is very cold, but coming from mostly swimming in the Gulf of New Mexico maybe my comparison is off. The guide was funny and informative.

A must-do for visitors & locals alike!
Jun 2021
This trip was incredible. The driver, Julian & guide, Brom were such a great team. As a Capetonian, I learnt things I didn't know about our area & it was all a perfectly executed interactive trip. Enough time at sights, surprise stop at Kalk Bay Harbour was a plus! The hike isn't suitable for anyone with injured joints & definitely not for children (contrary to what you might read online). Next time I'd pack my own picnic instead of relying on the restaurants - such great spots for this. Overall, the trip was wonderful & would HIGHLY recommend to anyone visiting/living in the area.
