This is a must if you’re going to Cape Town. My wife and I did this as a part of our honeymoon trip to South Africa. The seal trip is very cool. Food was great. Get the fish and chips in Simons Town! It was so awesome. It’s a long day but you see a lot and the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in Cape Town. Best way to knock off a bunch of stuff off your Cape Town list!

With this tour we had the chance to see the main attractions of the Cape Peninsula. Francis our guide was perfect in all explanations, he knows the places and their history well, so I highly recommend this tour.

The guide was great, his knowledge of the city, its history, sights, etc. was sensational! In addition, he was friendly and reserved at the same time, perfect !!

Lovely experience. Jean Marie was excellent and went above expectations.

Very nice tour. With Alex as a guide, everything worked out great.
