Cape of Good Hope Tour

The CitySightSeeing Cape Town Tour Company offer an array of trips in and around the Cape Town area. Most famously known for their open roofed double decker City Tour services, they also offer a variety of day trips, from Wine Farms, Robben Island and to Cape Point. Recently I experienced the day trip to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, which comes highly recommended!

Cape Point is famously known as the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet (see the two waters in the above photo), but is also home of the Cape of Good Hope, often confused of as being the lowest point in Africa, but as the signage confirms, they are the most South-Western point of Africa!

 

 

 

 

 

The actual Cape of Good Hope is about 2km from Cape Point and is accessible by a pleasant stroll (much better than Table Mountain)! A few steep steps towards the end of the walk along from Cape Point give amazing views over one of the most spectacular beaches I have seen, and the walk down is even steeper, but relatively short towards the famous sign, where fights have been known to break out in persons pushing in to get their ‘photo’ in front of it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The day starts around 9am and arrives back in Cape Town at the V&A Waterfront around 5,30pm, with informative commentary the entire way….the only downside is a trip to a Penguin Reserve at Boulder Bay, which was a bit dodgy, but a good spot to grab a coffee along with a nice little beach.

This is a great day out and total cost was 530R, or if you combine with another day tour, you get two for 950R which I combined with a Wine Farm tour.
