PENINSULA TOUR

The tour travels along the exquisite stretch of coastline known as Millionaire’s Paradise – from Clifton to Camps Bay, to the exclusive beach hamlet of Llandudno – towards the charming working harbour of Hout Bay. Here you have the option of embarking on an up-close-and-personal Seal Island cruise (optional and own account).
Then admire the breathtaking ocean views along the legendary Chapman’s Peak Drive, before arriving at our lunch spot (own account) at the Cape of Good Hope Section of the Table Mountain National Park. 
Meander back along the coast towards the City, visiting the historic naval port of Simon’s Town and the endearing African penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach (own account).
The last stop of the day is Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with its over 3500 species of flora. With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers.

Cape Point, Cape Town South Africa

WALK TO FREEDOM TOUR

You may extend this tour to the full day tour with a visit Robben Island in the afternoon.
 
Experience the wonderful raw energy of our Townships in one unforgettable morning. After a visit to District Six (closed on Sundays), where you will learn a little of the history of the townships, we continue on to the oldest township Langa and its people. Strolling through Langa Township, pop in to a local market, an Arts & Crafts center and visit a traditional healer. Experience the warm hospitality at a local Bed & Breakfast as well as a crèche that provides local children with a safe haven and fun environment. Then from Langa we visit two other townships, Khayelitsha and Gugulethu to get a more in-depth look at the vibrant communities. For those who have the time, we recommend you extend to a full day tour with a visit to Robben Island in the afternoon. Home of Nelson Mandela for so many years, it’s a highly charged and emotional moment when you visit the site of this suffering, and realize how far South Africa has come from those days.

TRAVELER TESTIMONIAL

Hi Cheryl.

IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!  Everything was great!  We loved all the places we stayed, especially Marataba.  That place is a MUST SEE! All the tour guides/drivers were so friendly and knowledgable about their cities.  They would go out of their way to help.  Duncan at Vic Falls was a favorite for sure!  

Thanks again so much for all your knowledge and help with the trip.  It was a perfect vacation!
