Tours & Services

With so much to offer, Cape Town is often described as a world within one city. So whatever you fancy, Cape Town has something for you.

Join us on any of our full or half day tours, as we show you around this world of its own.

PENINSULA TOUR

As we travel along the spectacular coastline of the Peninsula, we pass the pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with their soft white sands and azure blue water. The 12 Apostles Mountain Peaks rise above the road on one side, while sheer cliffs and incredible rock formations drop into the icy Atlantic Ocean on the other side. We visit the charming little fishing village of Hout Bay, where you will enjoy an optional boat trip to see the hundreds of Cape Fur Seals at Seal Island. Our journey continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and on to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Visit the most South-Western point of the African Continent at Cape of Good Hope and the mythical meeting place of the mighty Atlantic and Indian Oceans at Cape Point.  We visit the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach before arriving at the naval base of Simon's Town. We continue towards the birth place of the South African wine industry at Constantia and end the day with a visit to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Nestled amongst the mountains, the village of Franschhoek is renowned for its fine wining and dining. After a short tour of the little town, a second wine tasting or a chocolate experience will take place in Franschhoek, followed by a lunch stop (optional – own account). After lunch the tour continues over the Helshoogte Mountain Pass to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town after Cape Town.
