“unmissable”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We hired a driver and sat back and enjoyed the breathtaking views. The scenery was wild, beautiful and exciting. We ate at the restaurant at the bottom of the cable car and the food was really good. The visit to seal Island was great and the towns along the route were well worth visiting. Loved the penguins.

“Top of the World Feeling”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

A beautiful place - the Atlantic Ocean on one side and hills on teh other side. Very scenic place. The photo op spot was well made and you can take back memories from there.

“Must Do - Drive down the coast”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Hire a driver and relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the South African coast. Beautiful coastal cities, quaint towns, baboons and ostriches all seen on the drive. Took the boat ride to Seal Island (stinky but amazing). And then it ends at the Cape of Good Hope - crashing waves and beautiful. Go.
