Tour the Cape Peninsula with Wow
Spend a day exploring the craggy cliffs of Cape Point and walking amongst African penguins
No visit to Cape Town would be entirely complete without a breathtaking coastal excursion to prime bucket-list tourist attractions, like the dramatic Cape Point and the ever-popular Boulders Penguin Colony. And this is precisely what the private Cape Peninsula Tour run by small family-owned operator Wow Cape Town Tours promises.
Starting in the city centre at guests’ lodging, the route runs all along the Mother City’s picturesque shoreline, showcasing some of the most beautiful coves, cliffs, bays and beaches in all of South Africa. Along the way, visitors get a lightning-fast look at diverse seaside suburbs, including Sea Point, the vibey Camps Bay, charming Hout Bay, lazy Noordhoek and quaint Simon’s Town and Kalk Bay.
While every corner the tour takes is photo-worthy, the half- or full-day outings – they both start at 9am – culminate with the awe-inspiring Cape Point, a craggy stretch of land that juts out at the most southwesterly point of the African continent. Standing on the summit of this geographical masterpiece and looking out over endless waters is tantamount to balancing on what feels like the edge of eternity.
Aside from this highlight, sightseers can also look forward to navigating Chapman’s Peak Drive, easily one of the most scenic passes on the planet, and coming face-to-face with adorable African penguins at the unique Boulders Beach colony (if opting for a full-day rather than half-day tour, a boat ride to Seal Island is also an option on the bill).
While the various different stops (visitors are given good time to explore each) are impressive enough alone, Wow Cape Town Tours, which was established back in 2007 by highly knowledgeable local guide Rushdi Harper, goes out of its way to ensure an all-round unforgettable experience. More specifically, the professional, family-friendly operator tailors every detail of the expedition to travellers’ personal preferences, whims and wants (meaning, if you want to see something slightly off-route, this is not an issue), and encourages patrons to ask questions openly and move at a pace that suits them.
So, at the end of the day, tour-goers return to their place of rest (buses drop off visitors right at their hotels) satiated with gorgeous sights and sounds, overflowing with special memories and full up on the joys of having had a truly top-class tour experience.
