An excellent trip to see the cape, Felix our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Seeing the penguins was definitely a highlight, but the whole trip was beautiful. Pauline and the team also went above and beyond to reunite me with some lost property I’d left in the vehicle.An excellent trip to see the cape, Felix our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

We were picked up in a mini van for this trip and thankfully the vehicle was not full. We are both tall and as my husband is 6 foot 3 he sat in the front. Probably not the best option if you are tall. Visited the various places listed.

We are both tall and as my husband is 6 foot 3 he sat in the front. Probably not the best option if you are tall. Visited the various places listed. Our driver was very good and gave us lots of useful information along the way. The negative for us was that we stopped for lunch and as we had already had a large breakfast did not want to eat again. First told the stop would be for 30 mins and we ended up waiting just over two hours due to an issue with the staff and the bill! The restaurant we stopped at was Berthas at Simons town and this was not even on the tour description. Due to this we did not do as long as we would have liked in the National Park.
A great tour, with a great tour guide. Very fun and informative! Would definitely recommend to others.A great tour, with a great tour guide. Very fun and informative! Would definitely recommend to others.
My family and I really enjoyed this tour. We had an excellent guide who was always willing to be our cameraman and he gave us great information about the places we visited. He gave us great advice about our stops and even had tables booked at busy restaurants so that we could sit as a group. ...My family and I really enjoyed this tour.
