Explore Cape Town with our most popular tours

Our unforgettable guided tours of Cape Town allow you to experience the best of the Cape, while making the most of the time you have in the city.

Led by experienced guides, whether you want to experience our pristine coastal reserves and beaches, the famous wine estates in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, or take in the views from the world-famous Table Mountain – there’s no reason you can’t do it all with us. Ready for an adventure? Here are our three most popular day tours to whet your appetite.

The Cape Peninsula Tour

Boulders

From your Cape Town hotel, you’ll travel in our luxury vehicle as we head towards our first top of Hout Bay – a charming, multi-cultural fishing village. Keen to get out and explore on your own? You’re also able to hop on a boat for a trip to a nearby seal colony at Duiker Island.

From Hout Bay we head along Chapmans Peak – often considered to be one of the most beautiful roads in the world – until we arrive at Cape Point, the southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula. There’s time to stretch your legs, explore the National Park, grab a bite to eat and take in the spectacular views. From here, we slowly head back towards Cape Town, stopping in at Simon’s Town – a quaint seaside village that is home to the country’s naval base, and Boulders Beach – famous for its colony of African Penguins. This tour ends at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, at the foot of Table Mountain.

The Stellenbosch or Franschhoek Wine Route Tour

Winelands

With its outstanding wine and beautiful scenery, no visit to Cape Town is complete without a day spent in the winelands. Our guide will take you to 2 or 3 wine farms for wine tasting and allow you to indulge, without having to worry about driving home afterwards. The two most popular regions are Stellenbosch or Franschhoek – both beautiful towns, home to exceptional wine estates – chat to us and we’ll help you decide on your route and plan your perfect day.

The Table Mountain and Robben Island Tour

Table Mountain

Offering spectacular views of the city, Robben Island and the peninsula, Table Mountain is one of the new wonders of the world for good reason and a visit should be top of your Cape Town to-do list. The state-of-the-art cable car offers 360 degree views on your journey, and we pre-book tickets, giving you more time to enjoy the views, and less time in queues. Once at the top, you can take in the views, explore via one of the sign-posted pathways or grab a drink and bite to eat. The cable car departs regularly, with the last car leaving at sunset.

From the top of the mountain to sea level, there are few places in South Africa that bear the weight and sheer historical importance of Robben Island. A short ferry ride from the V&A Waterfront, you will be guided around this World Heritage Site by a former inmate, giving you unparalleled insight and understanding into one of the world’s most significant political landmarks.

 

Boulders Beach – Penguin’s Paradise

Boulders Beach is all about the Penguins! With it’s pristine beach, clear water and plenty of penguins, it’s not surprising that more than 60 000 visitors flock to Boulders Beach every year

Boulders Beach, with its wind sheltered bays and safe sandy shores, is home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African Penguins. Only 50 minutes from Cape Town, a trip to Boulders Beach is well worth a visit.

Book a tour, enjoy the scenic journey and enjoy a few hours amongst these little guys. It’s great fun to watch the tuxedo clad penguins go about their daily routines of sunning themselves, guarding their nests or waddling across the beach.

At Boulders Beach, the penguins have adapted quite well to camera-wielding humans.

They walk and nest undisturbed just a few feet away from the thousands of visitors that visit every year. But, as cute as they look they can be quite feisty, so don’t try to feed them!

If you’re travelling with kids, be prepared to stay a while: the water is safe for swimming, there are rock pools to explore and granite boulders to climb on – it really is the perfect spot for a family beach picnic.
