“Pretty views”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The views are gorgeous but the weather can be very changeable very quickly. Walking up to Cape Point went from warm and cloudy to cold, windy and raining in 12minutes and stopped in about another 15minutes.

“wild and windy”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It was awesome to visit this famous spot and to imagine the numerous ships that floundered on this wild and rugged coastline.but, it was wonderful to see the power of the sea, tand to be glad that I was on-shore and not on the unfortunate ships that had to navigate the coast around there!!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

The Cape of Good Hope is a great experience where you see the wild Atlantic ocean and the much quiter Indian oceans join. Incredible scenery and very dramatic to stand before the sign of the cape of good hope. Going up Table mountain on the rotating cable car is a must too! Words just can't describe the beauty. The penguins were an amazing sight too.
Again, this trip was in 2008 but the menu here won't allow going back that far.

“DISAPPOINTING”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Nothing much to see although the journey through the Cape of Good Hope National Park was pleasant enough. Basically just a stop for coaches and vehicles to have a picture taken against a sign. The so-called cape could be anywhere. Maybe I'm just spoit!
