From Cape Town: Cape Point, Penguins And Wine Tasting Tour

1. From Cape Town: Cape Point, Penguins And Wine Tasting Tour

Get picked up at 8:00 AM from your centrally located Cape Town city hotel or lodging in order to start the Cape Peninsula Tour. Travel around the beautiful Atlantic coastline, past the world-famous Clifton and Camps Bay Beaches, Bakoven, Llandudno and through Hout Bay.  Continue along the world-renowned magnificent Chapman’s Peak Drive towards Kommetjie, a great surf spot, the Slangkop Lighthouse, past Misty Cliffs and continuing through the quaint seaside village of Scarborough until heading to Cape of Good Hope in the Table Mountain National Park. Be served complimentary tea/ coffee and biscuits at the much photographed Cape of Good Hope sign-board before driving further to eventually hop onto the Flying Dutchman Funicular (cost included) to go up to the incredibly beautiful viewing point around the base of the old Cape Point lighthouse. Your next exciting stop will be Boulders Beach, a popular tourist destination, to view a colony of African penguins that settled there in 1982. Boulders Beach is one of the few sites where the penguins can be observed at close range, wandering freely in a protected natural environment. Boardwalks will take you to within a few yards of the birds.  Lunch will normally be at Seaforth near Boulders. Their fish and chips is always a winner, but so is the rest of the menu. Then it's through Glen Cairn, Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and over Boyes Drive for a panoramic view of False Bay, where you may be lucky enough to spot sharks or whales on a quick stop to the Shark Spotters lookout. Not far from here you reach the Constantia Valley Wine Route, one of 9 routes in South Africa. You will be treated to a tasting of 5 fine wines at one of the finely selected estates on route. Then for a scenic drive back to your hotel past Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens which you can visit at your own leisure by taking the city sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus or an Uber from the city. This is a full day tour and you won't get back to your hotel until around 5:00 PM but it will be the most memorable day of your visit to Cape Town.

What people are saying about Simon's Town

Excellent choice, wonderful time.

Excellent choice, wonderful time. Our guide, Ian , from African Moon Adventures had a well planned itinerary, and was personable and informative throughout. The tea and biscuits at one of the stops was a very nice touch. Our only regret was that we did not discover African Moon Adventures earlier in our stay so that we could have booked other trips with them.

This tour was just amazing. The guide Ian, who is a local, was very friendly, respectful and told us a lot about south african history, tradition and culture. He fulfilled all our wished and stopped everywhere we wanted to. We definitely would book this tour again with him. Thanks a lot Ian!

A nice guide that makes sure you’re having a good time and you get what you came for. Perfect balance between seeing a lot in one day and enjoying those spots to the fullest.

We had the best tour guide you cna think of, Ian. He showed us what we wanted, and even a little bit more than that.

Simply amazing!

We had the most wonderful day! Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for the experience :-)
