So much more than penguins!
We did the Penguin Encounter Tour, and it was the highlight of my stay in South Africa! We had originally booked for the morning of March 8th. Little did we know, a large bike race was happening, causing road closures all throughout Cape Town and the Western Cape that day. They messaged us to see if we would be willing to go for an afternoon tour instead. My husband and I didn’t have anything else planned, so we were all for it! I’m sure glad we agreed, because we ended up being the only ones on the tour!

We were picked up from our hotel, and our tour guide was amazing (I’m feeling awful, because I don’t remember his name...but he had glasses!) On our drive down to the Penguin Preserve, we made a few stops for photo ops, and the whole way there, he was educating us with South African history (which was so interesting and eye opening!)

Once we got to the preserve, our guide explained to us the different routes and bridges we could take to see the penguins, and let us know he would meet us back in the parking lot in about 2.5 hours. So. Many. Penguins! The preserve did not disappoint!

From there, we took the scenic route back, and drove along the coast of the Western Cape. The drive was absolutely amazing! I am so glad that he took us that way! Just like the way out, on the way in, we made a few stops to take in the view and take some photos.

This was one of the best tours and most knowledgeable guides I have EVER had!

I would HIGHLY recommend!

Great tour thanks to a top guide
We thought this was the best activity we did in Cape Town. We wanted to get a decent length of time at the penguin colony so we weren't rushed - on this tour we got 2 hours there and it was a delight. On top of that our guide drove us there on a fantastic route along both coasts and including the fabulous Chapman's peak road. Lots of little stops to admire the beauty and take pics but moreover Treasure really knew his stuff and pointed out lots of little details we would never have known about. Very professional and fun, we would recommend.

Coming to Cape Town involved a lot of mixed emotions. On our first night, we were nearly got mugged and some taxi drivers took advantage of us by charging us double. So we were a little bit sceptical and did not really expect so much with the tour. But our tour guide, Treasure, changed all that. He was very friendly and he's very informative about our tour. He made sure that we were looked after and safe at all times. He made the tour fun and very enjoyable, we couldnt help but forget the bad memories we've had in the first place. I'm happy that we have met Treasure, because he made us realise that not all people are bad and that Cape Town is really a beautiful place to explore.

Jan 2020 • Couples
When we got in the car alain offered straight out to do the whole day private tour (at a cost) and we were glad he did as it was a fantastic day. Saw lots of wildlife including baboons, zebra, ostrich penguins of course, antilope and seals. Alain was very helpful, informative and just a nice guy. Definitely worth using this company
