What people are saying about Seal Island

The tour has definitely exceeded our expectations! We were picked up on time and safely driven across the Cape Peninsula in a very comfortable car by our guide Yome. She taught us a lot about nature, history and also about society. She always responded to our wishes and treated us like VIPs. It is certainly also her merit that we had such a beautiful day :-)

The tour is really great! My special highlight was Cape Point, the view from above was simply fantastic! The fish restaurant on Boulders Beach is an absolute must - from fish to burgers to pasta - super delicious! Small drawback: our guide was unfortunately very needy, so that my girlfriend and I were annoyed after a certain time.

The guides name was Rodney. He was a perfect guide and i wish i could be guided by Rodney in other occasions. He was absolutly nice, helpful, interested. Thanks a lot to Rodney and the company he is working for!!!!!

The tour took place in a small group, punctual collection, the very courteous and extremely well informed guide Albert made the trip a very nice and interesting experience. Recommended at any time!

What an amazing experience! Very informative. The driver was the best!
