    Our trip with Mr. President Reagan as our guide was absolutely brilliant. It was so much fun. Reagan Kuba is a very nice guide, always funny and the best photographer you can have. Pick up and drop off were in time. Perfect :)

    We learned many things about bo kaap and cape of good hope. Sometimes we wished that we have more time at the spots. For Lunch we were at harbourview restaurant in Simon's town. This was really bad, if you had the chance, eat in another restaurant.

    Thanks for a nice trip, Reagan

    Absolutely awesome, exhilarating and fantastic experience. Cant stop talking about it. As a person who prefers the terrafirma adventures this experience is firmly my best in a long while. Heart pounding stuff getting into that shark cage and seeing sharks so close up to the cage. Besides sharks we were blessed to also see and experience dolphins all around the boat. The overall experience was as perfect as you can get. Compliments to Stefan and the boat crew who kept us engaged and informed and who made this experience a fun one. Lots of laughter and smiles until you get into that cage. Still can't stop thinking about this experience. Thank you Shark Explorers

    The tour was a great way to see a lot of the Cape highlights in one day without the stress of driving yourself. Our tour guide Morne was very insightful and it was a pleasure to have him as a driver. Money well spent

    This was a great 1/2 tour for anyone short on time. We got to see a lot more than expected. The penguins and cape of good hope were amazing. We were also treated to some additional wildlife and costal views along the way. Please make sure to check the pickup time. Even though the tour may start at 9AM the pick up time for us was 8AM. We missed this communication as we were traveling the day prior so only saw the 9AM confirmation. Double check with agents.

    Outstanding tour of Cape Town and Cape Peninsula.
    After a delay in starting our day, we were delighted to learn our guide Sylvie and driver Zain had waited for us, we had a total of 8 in our van (all off ship, but independently booked)
    Due to high winds, we were not able to go up Table Mountain in the morning, so we headed for Bo Kaap first to see the colourful buildings and super views from there. We had time to buy takeaway coffee for our hour long journey to the Cape of Good Hope, it delighted us with views of hills, villages and stunning coastline, the National Park was itself beautiful and we saw wild Ostriches on the beach! We climbed up to the oldest lighthouse and again the views were breathtaking. Our guide and driver whisked us away to a local town called Simon’s Town where we overlooked the Harbour and sampled locally scoured meats we had never had before and it was very good!! After lunch we went to Boulders beach to visit a colony of small penguins, gorgeous, cute little birds that were quite used to being looked at by us humans….. what a treat to be so close. Our driver and guide then took us up Table Mountain as far as the cable car station, again the views were beautiful and the sky was clear, but oh my was it windy! The perfect end to a perfect day…..
    Highly recommended and we’d love to visit again for longer.

    What an amazing experience! Steph, Jason, and Ernest were a phenomenal crew - knowledgeable, nice, funny, and thoughtful. They suited us up in gear and we took turns in the shark cage. We felt safe at all times. It was not scary at all. We saw about ten bronze whaler sharks up close. On the trip back to the harbor we saw a bait ball of sardines with a thousand dolphins, some Bryde’s Whales, seals, birds, and penguins feeding. We capped off the trip with a sunfish sighting. This was a once in a lifetime experience!

    Our driver Peter was amazing, and we had a fantastic full day touring round the Cape peninsula, and managed to tick off all the important things to see and do.
    Many thanks.

    Amazing trip which was very professionally organized by Hotspots2c. We’ve been informed of our pick up times early enough and our guide Mr Nev was fantastic! He went above and beyond to show us the beauty of his country and involved everyone in the group by adapting spontaneously to our wishes. The Botlierskop Safari and the Tsitsikama national park were breathtaking. We were lucky to see all of the big 5! Would definitely recommend and book again.

    We just finished our tour to the Cape of Good Hope with Xochitle from Cape Archives. What a great time we had! What initially caught our eye was a competitive price along with included admissions to the parks. The booking process was very easy with confirmation both via WhatsApp and email. Our guide, Xochitle arrived early to our hotel in a spotless van that was in excellent condition and very comfortable.

    The itinerary was just about perfect to make a loop of the Cape in an unhurried and relaxing manner. We saw all of the major western beach areas. We made a rest stop in at a small shopping center that consisted of small cafes, an organic food store and an incredible bakery.

    After our break, we went to the Cape of Good Hope both at the beach and up top at the lighthouse. We were given plenty of time to walk around and explore the area. We never felt rushed.

    Following the Cape, we stopped for lunch at a beach restaurant . Our reservation was prearranged and we were given a corner table overlooking the water. The food was good as was the service. This was really nice.

    Finally, we made our way into the penguin reserve and once again had enough time to explore and take photos at our leisure.

    Xochitle was incredibly hospitable and provided a great balance of information about the area without it being overwhelming. We would most definitely recommend Xóchitle and Cape Archives to anyone visiting the Cape Town area.

    It was a fantastic day! Bizo was the best Guide we could have asked for. He was friendly, always looking after us, told us a lot of interesting things about Cape Town and we had enough time to do what we wanted to do. The organisation was perfect. Thanks a lot for this amazing trip ! We are absolutely happy :)
