A must-do for visitors & locals alike!
Jun. 2021
This trip was incredible. The driver, Julian & guide, Brom were such a great team. As a Capetonian, I learnt things I didn't know about our area & it was all a perfectly executed interactive trip. Enough time at sights, surprise stop at Kalk Bay Harbour was a plus! The hike isn't suitable for anyone with injured joints & definitely not for children (contrary to what you might read online). Next time I'd pack my own picnic instead of relying on the restaurants - such great spots for this. Overall, the trip was wonderful & would HIGHLY recommend to anyone visiting/living in the area.

May 2021
We had a beautiful experience in cape point tour, seeing the penguins was the best thing, we were not bored at all since we had a very charming, funny, full of details and he knows exactly what he is doing, our Tour Guide Mr.Brahm.(not sure if i spelled correctly)

I would recommend anyone to visit.

Six stars, not five
May 2021
This wasn't five stars. It was six. All because of the guide/driver, Brahm (I hope I am spelling his name correctly!). The tour took off promptly at 9:30 and from the start to the end, Brahm offered the most insightful commentary. One of the most knowledgeable and funny guides I've ever experienced. The sights were incredible, too. Weather was amazing and we saw hundreds of penguins at Boulder Beach. Brahm took us to a nice and affordable restaurant for lunch before heading to Cape Point National Park, where we spent a few more hours hiking and reaching Cape of Good Hope. Absolutely worth your while to book this trip, with the hope that Brahm will be your guide. An unforgettable day.

Long, fun day on the peninsula!

We don't often take "tours", but we had a great time with our informative and friendly guide, Brahm. The sights were lovely, and the walk from cape to cape was a nice way to break up a long day on the bus.

Definitely add this your bucket list
I highly recommend to take Red bus and visit Cape Point. It is especially good choice for solo travellers, because you do not need to worry about anything. Just go with the flow! Our guide Brahm knew absolutely everything. Doesn't matter was is it about country history, or fauna and flora, he had a story to tell. Not less important was his ability to keep us in a good mood with jokes during all trip. My recommendation is tput on comfortable shoes and go on an extra hike down from the lighthouse to Cape Good Hope. It takes ca 45 minutes, but is worth of every second (not for those who fear height). And penguins ... and seals in the local market ...

Brahm: "Do you see those black bushes? Are they beautiful? ... Actually, they are ostriches." ;-)

Great Day Trip! Highly recommend
Jan. 2021 • Couples
Had such a good time on this trip! Was very excited to have such a knowledgeable guide and learned many things on this tour. Definitely take the extra time to go beyond the lighthouse at Cape Point to the very end, amazing views! Perfect timing for all activities. Would love to take family and friends some day! Also loving getting to see so much of the peninsula in one day!
