What people are saying about Cape Peninsula

The tour is really great! My special highlight was Cape Point, the view from above was simply fantastic! The fish restaurant on Boulders Beach is an absolute must - from fish to burgers to pasta - super delicious! Small drawback: our guide was unfortunately very needy, so that my girlfriend and I were annoyed after a certain time.

At first I was skeptical whether such a tour was something for us. Rodney picked us up from the hotel on time and our spirits rose. A nice guy very helpful knowledgeable u accommodating. Our group of 5 was great. We had lots of fun. We saw everything and had enough time. It was the best day of our vacation. Thanks
