This tour covered a lot of territory and provided a lot of bang for your buck. Our driver Danson was friendly, informative and attentive to the needs of the nine passengers on board our modern and comfortable van. We stopped numerous times for photo ops, as well as coffee and restroom breaks. In Hout Bay we had the option of taking a boat ride out to Seal Island. Then we stopped in Simon's Town at a nice waterside restaurant for lunch on our own, followed by a fun visit to the penguin colony at Boulder Beach. Our last stop was Cape Point, where we could hike or take the funicular up to the lighthouse and then hike or drive down to the actual point. We saw some elands, ostriches and baboons in the park. It was a long day but a great way to see some of the famous places outside of Cape Town.

Danson (our guide) was simply amazing in not only getting us to all of the beautiful sights and wildlife of the cape peninsula but entertaining and enlightening on all of the information we might want to know and so much more when we were in transit. All of us took the additional trip to Seal Island which was lovely to see the seals but also a fun diversion into a beautiful sea scape. And as one who suffers greatly from seasickness, I had no problems (although it was a mild day). The other guests were lovely and it was a great day, albeit long as we all agreed to go a bit longer for a side trip to get a better view of False Bay.

I was a solo traveler and this was my first time in Cape Town. The original driver was involved in an accident so I was picked up late. This is obviously not the fault of the touring company. Despite this minor setback, the replacement driver was humorous and took us to all the different locations. He was also very receptive to our requests to pullover so we could take pictures or the landscape and different animals. I would certainly recommend this to all first-timers.

Excellent tour that takes you to the major tourist spots out of reach of the city center. The alternative I considered was taking City Sightseeing’s similar tour, but I’m so happy I went with Cape Archives Tours instead. Having a small group allowed us to adjust the schedule a bit to suit us best. Alain was fantastic! He pointed everything out as we passed by, was super patient and accommodating, and must have taken dozens of pictures for us everywhere. He also scheduled for making a stop at Muizenberg even though it wasn’t part of the itinerary, which I very much appreciated. Thank you so much Alain!

The trip to the Cape of Hope/Point was an amazing experience. Danson did a great job in telling us information about where we were going and answering our questions. We had the right number of stops and time to enjoy each of the stops. I recommend the trip, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

We did this tour yesterday. Danson was our driver and the tour experience he provided was 100% He is a very knowledgeable guy. Danson provided a full commentary during the tour with some excellent information at every stop off of the tour. We enjoyed seeing the penguins in their natural environment. The stops for refreshments were excellent choices by Danson and he was on hand to assist at all times. Cape point was a great experience I will never forget., lots of surprises and animals to see. . thanks again to our tour guide Danson 👍 kind regards Simon , Justine and Zak

I decided to take this tour because I figured it would be cheaper and more informative than taking ubers to all of these places that are a bit far away from the city center. I was right! Our tour guide was Joseph and he was prompt in picking up, friendly and knowledgeable. He wasn’t quite as lively as it sounds like some of the other tour guides are but he was just super chill and fun to spend the day with. He made sure we were moving along at the right pace to get everything done, and didn’t disappoint! Bring more cash than is outlined (or your credit card) in case you decide to take the cable car up to the lighthouse at Cape Point or want to grab food/snacks there. Overall a great way to get around the cape as a first-timer. Thank you!

Dear Jayne We are very happy that you had a wonderful day with us.Yes,this program does cover quiet a lot of ground about Cape Town and thus making it one of the best ways to introduce or re-introduce anyone to The Mother city.We also are happy that you enjoyed the company of your guide Joseph albeit not being lively.We believe that all people are unique in how they react to certain situation and showing emotions so we do not enforce any behavioral patterns otherwise our experiences would not be as authentic as we thrive to make them be.Thank you once again for sharing a few tips about this trip to the other future travelers. Enjoy all of your future travels!

We took this tour on our first full day we had in Cape town and very much enjoyed the day with Albert. Other than visiting great places, Albert was very friendly and let us learn things throughout the day. He even reordered the itinerary so we could skip the morning fog and make the most of the stunning chapmans peak drive views in the afternoon instead. The tour allowed us to also make some new friends and have an unforgettable day in general! Thank you very much, Albert, for your time, flexibility and friendliness - we hope to see you again in the future. Adam & Ilaria

Fantastic day. Lots of driving but plenty of stops for photos etc. Albert went out of his way to make sure we saw baboons, eland, ostriches and - of course penguins. Seals definitely worth the boy ride (£4.50). Full day 8am to 6pm, with great lunch at very affordable place by the sea (£9 for pasta and a coke and coffee).

Mr.Danson, the tour leader was one of the best. I really like the way he narrates the South African's stories.

Highly recommended.
