Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chapman's Peak Drive, Hout Bay Road Between Noordhoek and Hout Bay, 7872 South Africa

Meet your friendly private guide in Cape Town and head west by air-conditioned minivan, travelling along one of the world’s must-do routes -- Chapman’s Peak Drive. Wrapping itself around the Cape Peninsula, this cliff-hugging pass cuts into the mountainside, with sheer drops down to the crashing ocean waves below. Hair-raising to drive yourself, Chapman’s Peak (if open - subject to weather conditions) is far better to experience as a passenger, offering some of the most indescribably scenic views that you’ll probably ever see.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Cape Point Nature Reserve, Cape Town Central South Africa

After approximately 30 minutes, arrive at the Cape of Good Hope Reserve, part of Table Mountain National Park, for a leisurely walk with your guide. Following craggy stone paths along the headland, wander over to the Cape Point lighthouse to see the wild Atlantic waves lapping on the cliffs.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point Rd, Table Mountain National Park 8001 South Africa

Continue to Cape Point, the narrow finger of land that marks South Africa’s southeastern tip, and with your guide walk through the beautiful Cape Point Nature Reserve. Keep an eye out for the wildlife that roams free along the coastal paths, like Ostrich, Antelope and lizards, to name a few!

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: Kalk Bay Harbour, Kalk Bay 7990 South Africa

Hop back on board your luxury minivan and relax on the journey north to Constantia Valley, known as Cape Town’s vineyard. On the way, pass the beach resorts of Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay, as well as picture-perfect villages like St James and Simon’s Town.

Stop At: Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Simon's Town 7995 South Africa

Stop at Boulders Beach, famously home to a large colony of African penguins, to have a look around independently. Entrance to the penguin reserve is at your own expense, but the free walkways next to the reserve also offer great viewing platform

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Groot Constantia Estate Groot Constantia Road, Constantia 7806 South Africa

Arriving in Constantia Valley in the late afternoon, head straight to Groot Constantia -- a historical wine estate that was founded in 1685. As fine as it is old, the estate is a joy to explore and you’ll do just that on a group tour of its fascinating wine cellars. End your tour on a high note with a wine-tasting session before returning to Cape Town.

We can highly recommend this tour. Comfortable ride in air conditioned car, with our most knowledgeable guide, Andrew. Stunning views, mixed with plenty of photo stops and walks at Cape of Good Hope. Penguins were superb, well worth a visit. A wonderful tour finishing up at Constantia winery. Five sample wines to chose from a list of many with generous servings. Delicious! A special mention for Andrew who was such an excellent guide, and put up with my two rather badly behaved daughters with very good humour.

Our tour was absolutely amazing! While all of the sites were spectacular, what really made the tour was our guide Ultrich. He was welcoming and explained all the areas we visited and answered our many questions. We really enjoyed the tour!

Great guide - Andrew J Great day,

Our guide was professional and knowledgeable and I enjoyed having a private tour that allowed us to enjoy the sights and activities a little more at our own pace with the cost not being much more than similar group tours. The sights were beautiful and there were stops for photo opportunities along the road. The wine tour and tasting was lovely although I would recommend giving the option to pay a little extra on the day for 'wine and chocolate tasting' as the package in the tour was wine only and we didn't realise there was a chocolate option until we got to the tasting room. Overall a great day out that I would recommend.

The Tour was amazing. The sights and wine where fantastic but the best thing was our tour guide Andrew..he was so friendly and his colourful stories really made the day....He was so helpful and dropped us off to Table Mountain even tough not on the itinerary. A day that will live long in the memory!

We had a great guide/driver called Eon, who from the outset made sure we had a 'tailor-made' experience. He found out our preferences and adapted the tour to suit. My Mum's mobility wasn't great and Eon looked after her so well, even staying with her while we went off taking photos and climbing hills! The drive is spectacular,with great views, we visited the attractive town of Simonstown and the Penguins of Boulders Beach, then on to Cape Point which was great, and lunch at the restaurant there - 'Two Oceans' - which was delicious Eon reserved a table for us. Finally we returned for an interesting tour of Groot Constantia Winery and a wine-tasting, which was pleasant enough. All in all, a great success, and worth paying extra for the private tour.

Beautiful day on the Cape, packed much in yet did not feel rushed. Our guide was well informed and had a clear love of the area. Views are stunning, penguins are adorable, and the wine was wonderful.

This was a fantastic tour. I would recommend it to anyone. Our guide, Gerhald, was excellent, providing a very informative and enjoyable day. As there was only the two of us, he even customised the tour a little to suit us, as he wanted to ensure we had a great time. And we did.

My wife and I were the only persons on this trip. Our driver-guide was excellent: steady driver, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable guide, but also someone who knew when to leave you space to enjoy the many amazing sights offerd by this trip. It was a beautiful morning when we set off from Cape Town, and as a wee bonus we went up Signal Hill, below the Lion's Head, for some phenomenal views all around, from Table Mountain round to Sea Point and out to Robben island. A sea-trip to view the seals in Houts Bay was good even if we were a bit overwhelmed by a large Chinese party also on board - luckily they were a bit overwhelmed in turn by the swell of the sea. On to an ostrich farm via Chapman's Peak Drive, from whence amazing views of Houts Bay. After entertaining the ostriches we made our way on to Cape Point, where quite apart from the amazing site itself, we had an excellent al fresco lunch well served by Kenneth as birds like starlings zoomed around us. We took in the Cape of Good Hope (not the same as Cape Point) before making our way round into False Bay and Simonstown, with its slumbering penguins lurking in the bush beside the board-walk. Then it was on to the lovely Groot Constantia, the oldest wine farm in the Cape. A good tour here, and some interesting wine varieties sampled. Then finally home to the door at the Underberg in Tamboerskloof, tired but exhilarated by an amazingly varied and enjoyable day, and a long-held ambition fulfilled.
