Great day trip from Cape Town. Comfortable double decker bus with air con. Two hours at Cape Point, with an option to hike to the beach. It is long enough to walk to the lighthouse and back, but if you want to walk right to the end of the track then there is just enough time and not quite enough time to grab food, luckily we had some snacks with us. There was some confusion when two passengers missed the pick up and we had to go back to collect them. I don't think the guides were clear about how many were doing the hike and how many were catching the bus. This led to us being late to the penguin colony and this was quite rushed as a result. I would have liked more time at the penguin colony as there was a reasonable walk from where the coach parked and it is busy at the penguin colony. We went on a Sunday, it might be quieter during the week. Good value for money and easy to book.
Such an amazing day filled with beautiful views, a lot of animals and extensive information about South Africa and Cape of Good Hope. Charles was a wealth of knowledge and such a fun tour guide who pointed out all the best spots on the tour. We would highly recommend this tour!
The bus pickup stops are spread around Cape town and are described on the activity details, you don't need to come to the meeting spot provided in the app. Check out for the most convenient pickup spot for you in advance.
Brilliantly constructed day that was expertly hosted by Charles who knowledge of the area was second to non. The bus was comfortable with great air conditioning. The stops that were made were the right length of time.
One of the best tours of its kind that we have been one. The guides on the bus were wonderful- very knowledgable and super friendly. This is definitely one of the must do tours if you’re staying in Cape Town.
