Bo kaap
Bo-kaap is an old lady of a residential earlier resting on the foothills of the famous Signal hill of Cape town. This residential area was established in the mid 1700s as a popular rental space for passing sailors. However, although the city of Cape town has since expanded further and built even more luxurious suburbs along the scintillating coastal areas, it is Bo-kaap’s unique architecture, cobbled streets and colorful buildings that keep absorbing a significant percentage of Cape town’s visitors into this corner of Cape Town’s inner city. Your guide will give you some time to walk around, take pictures, and point out to you all the important landmarks and tell you their history before moving on to the next stop.
Twelve Apostles
The twelve apostles is a mountain range situated at the Southwestern end of Table Mountain and is named after its 12 distinct and protruding headlands. Since this mountain range can be easily missed from inside a moving vehicle, your guide will find a safe place to park so that you may take pictures before you move on to the next stop on the tour.
Hout Bay
Hout Bay lies on the Atlantic seaboard of Cape town and a mere 12km drive from Camps Bay. Guarded by the Constantia Berg, Leeukopie and Hout Bay mountains to the West, North and the East, the Atlantic Ocean completes the natural 4th layer of natural security to the South and thus leading to the town being nicknamed the Republic of Hout Bay. Without enough time to visit the chirpy fishing harbor at the Southwestern end of Hout Bay, your guide will instead stop at Chapman’s peak drive where better views of Hout Bay can be seen from.
Chapman's Peak Drive
The Chapman’s peak drive is arguably Cape Town’s most scenic drive so much that even local schools organize trips to be dazzled by the duet between nature and the work of man as witnessed at the Chapman’s peak. The mountain pass meanders for roughly 9km from Hout Bay to Noordhoek at the Southern end, giving you beautiful views of the Chapman’s mountains, Hout Bay and Long beach of Noordhoek. Your guide will stop where safe and possible for you to take pictures and soak in the beauty as seen here.
Noordhoek farm village
The Farm village is known to be the heartbeat of the lush equestrian town called Noordhoek. Boasting of curio shops, restaurants, and a bakery, it is however the Village Roost’s coffee that attracts many here. Your guide will allow you not more than 30 minutes to walk around and get any provisions of your choice before moving on to Boulders beach.
Boulders beach
Along the false bay coast of Cape town, just outside Simon’s town hides a series of pristine white sandy beaches dotted with Precambrian granite boulders and the town’s most favorite resident. The African Penguin. Hundreds of visitors come here daily to have their glimpse of the waddling tuxedo swimmer at foxy beach. This tour gives you the privilege to not only view the penguins from the boardwalk at foxy beach but also take a further 10-minute walk to Boulders beach where you can have a chance to walk on the same beach as the African penguins and take beautiful pictures. Your guide will give you an hour and half to 2 hours to explore the Boulders in its entirety before driving back to Cape Town via Kalk Bay and Muizenberg.
Muizenberg beach
Muizenberg beach is one of Cape Town beach goers and surfer’s favorite corner. The famous colorful changing huts on the beach also attract passersby who stop here briefly to have their own pictures of one of Cape Town’s iconic sites. From Muizenberg, our tour will head for Cape town City center for drop off before 1pm.
