My review was too long to paste here so you can check it out on Google reviews here: The short version is that we had a great time. The stops were great, crew was awesome, and views were amazing. Just wish there was more time at the stops as we felt a bit rushed. I’d recommend to bring a lunch so you don’t spend your limited time waiting for food.

Wir haben eine sehr tolle und super organisierte Tour gemacht. Wirklich klasse ! Wenn man noch vor hat Bettys bay auf der Garden route zu besichtigen, lohnt es sich nicht unbedingt am boulders beach Eintritt zu zahlen. Man kann an dem kostenfreien Strand ein paar Pinguine sehen. Auch wenn man den Weg entlang zum “Schwimm-Strand“ geht, sieht man rechts und links Pinguine. Am cape point wird noch eine Wanderung zum cape of good hope angeboten (ca.45 Minuten) feste Schuhe/ Turnschuhe sind auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen. Die Wanderung war sehr schön! Am Fotostopp am Cape of good hope hat man nicht viel Zeit, das ist wirklich nur ein kurzer Stopp. Alles im allen - eine tolle Tour !

It was a very nice trip. Everything as described. From Cape Town about 50 minutes to Boulders Beach, where we had two hours of free time (including lunch). The tickets could be bought right on the bus, which is great because you no longer have to queue at the ticket office. Then we went on to Cape Point, where we had enough time to walk up. Unfortunately it rained that day, but we all got a free rain poncho. Then we went on foot or by bus (everyone as he wants) to the Cape of Good Hope. There is only a short photo stop, a few minutes longer would have been nice. The tour guides are very nice and have a lot of information in their luggage. Our guide spoke almost every language. The only negative: The description says that you will be picked up and dropped off from the hotel. This is not true! You have to go to a meeting point in the city. Which is okay, but unfortunately the description says otherwise...
