Cape Town: Cape Peninsula & Winelands Private Full-Day Tour

1. Cape Town: Cape Peninsula & Winelands Private Full-Day Tour

You have the freedom to choose which time you would like the tour to start. It is recommended you start at 8:30 AM, as you will want to get the most out of your day. The guided tour begins with a visit to Maidens Cove. With views of the notorious Twelve Apostles Mountain range and pristine Camps Bay penthouses, you might be tempted to relocate to Cape Town. If that isn’t enough to enthrall you, wait until you see Chapmans Peak Drive, this has to be one of the best, if not, the best mountain drive in the world. From the lookouts, you’ll be able to view the unspoiled beach of Noordhoek, the Hout Bay Harbor, and the Seal colony. Continue your tour to the Cape of Good Hope, a National Park which is the most Southern Western point of the African continent. Not too far from the Cape of Good Hope, you’ll see the warm and cold ocean currents meet at Cape Point Lighthouse. After visiting one of Africa’s well known national sights, head to Boulders Beach to see the African penguins. Here, you have the option of having a bite to eat at the Seaforth Restaurant or driving to Kalk Bay’s Harbor House. Please note; this is at your own account, and is optional. Thereafter, take a drive along Baden Powell Drive. This beautiful coastline drive offers beach and mountain views with beautiful wild flowers growing alongside the road. The scenic and seacoast drive leads you to Neethlingshof Wine and Delheim Wine Estate. Neethlingshof, in Stellenbosch, just outside the city of Cape Town, dates back to 1692. This is a perfect place for some wine tasting. The wine estate is known for its beautiful avenue of stone pines, and the beautiful surrounding mountain range. Neethlingshof boasts the finest wines including Merlot, Shiraz, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, and Sauvignon Blanc to name a few. Enjoy some wine tasting with food pairing which includes 5 bite size dishes. Your last stop for the day, Delheim Wine Estate, is situated at the slopes of Simonsberg Mountain and prides itself in its majestic surroundings. Famous for their award winning wines, such as, Pinotage Rose, Spatzendreck, and Grand Reserve, it is simply a must to indulge. Delheim Wine Estate also advises you on which wines are appropriate with food pairing. The estate offers decadent wine and cupcake pairing which is different from the usual wine and cheese combinations. If you consider yourself as a wine connoisseur, visiting these wine farms can be educational, indeed. Once your visit to these wine farms are finished, you will return back to your pick-up location along the N1 National Route. The tour concludes at around 6:00 PM.

He knew facts on everything, made sure we saw everything we wanted to see and was very caring when some of our group got I'll (not his fault, it was a tummy bug)
