Tour Description

Are you ready to experience the real Cape Town? Are you drawn to the ocean like a true Capetonian? Today we will enjoy our stunning Cape Peninsula along with an amazing surf experience along either coastline. Catching waves under the guidance of a professional surf coach who is experienced in helping beginners catch their first waves and also guiding the more experienced surfer on the best beaches on the day.


  • The breathtaking views of Clifton and Camps Bay as we head down the Cape Peninsula.
  • Surf lesson on one of Cape Town’s amazing beaches (suitable for all levels)
  • A scenic drive along the world famous Chapman’s Peak Drive. (if open)
  • Visit Simon’s Town and the African Penguins at the Boulders Penguin Colony.
  • The Cape Point Nature Reserve and view the tip of Africa.
  • Venture to the Cape of Good Hope.
  • End the day off at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (time permitting and own account)


We begin our day at one of Cape Town’s many amazing beaches. You will start your surf lesson with your professional instructor and feel the ‘beach vibe’ immediately, surrounded by the ocean and mountains of the Cape Peninsula. The lessons are perfect for beginners but as most of the coaches have a lifetime of experience, they will be more than suitable to guide the experienced surfer too.

Our journey to the Cape Peninsula takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard, passing the pristine soft white sand beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, with the 12 Apostles rising above the chilly blue Atlantic Ocean below. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape Peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity.

Passing through Hout Bay, our tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a great example of how the land once was many hundreds of years ago in its virgin state of Cape Fynbos. If lucky you may spot some small buck, numerous birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, Eland and of course the mischievous baboons. Enjoy lunch (own account) at a restaurant overlooking False Bay. Take the funicular (own account) or the footpath for a 10 minute walk up to the old Cape Point lighthouse to see the “meeting” of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

We visit Boulders Penguin Colony before passing through Simons Town and time permitting to our last stop of the day at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (own account). With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers, and offer a fitting end to a day filled with all the Cape has to offer.

We booked this before we left on holiday and I would highly recommend it.We were two families of four adults and two 15yr old girls.
We are hiring a car tomorrow to travel down the garden route but for out time in Capetown we chose to get a tour.
Matt our guide was very prompt and collected ua as arranged at 08.30.The day was misty so he suggested changing the tour a bit so the mist wouldn’t affect our viewing. He was very courteous at all times and had the ability to move us on when needed without us ever feeling rushed.His knowledge of the history and geography was unbelievable. He was very sensitive to all the communities we passed through.
We had wine tasting , loved Simon Sig and had to buy some wine and bubbles! We went to Boulder to see penguins! Simonstown, Muizenburgh, Cape point for lunch, Hout Bay. It was amazing so much to see and do. Matt was brilliant and I would recommend this company to anyone planning a trip here. We also managed to see Baboons and a very large elk!

“Fantastic Private Tour”

I booked the Cape Peninsular tour from the UK on the internet but decided to take David’s offer of a private tour upgrade at a reasonable price.
Our guide Duncan was absolutely brilliant. Very knowledgeable on South African history, local landmarks, the wildlife and plants etc. We asked LOTS of questions but Duncan was great at answering and made us feel comfortable all day long.
The beauty of the private tour was we could adapt and spend more time at attractions we liked such as Boulders Beach and Cape Point rather than be slowed down by the group. The vehicle was still the spacious big mini bus.
Highly recommend.
