Description of Full & Half Day Tours at Cape Town and Surrounds from Ocean View Tours

Some of our suggestions for day tours are:

Cape Peninsula tour: Enjoy the wonderfully scenic route via Hout Bay and Chapman’s Peak Drive to the most south-westerly point of Africa : Cape of Good Hope. There are several opportunities for leisurely walks at the Cape Point: to the old lighthouse at 249m above sea level or the new lighthouse at the very end of the peninsula. We return towards Cape Town along the False Bay Coast with an opportunity to stop at Boulder’s Beach to admire the African Penguin Colony.

Winelands tour: A tour of the wine regions such Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl gives you the opportunity to do some winetasting and visit well-known and also not so well known wine cellars, that might just surprise you. If you are interested in the production of wine you might enjoy a cellar tour, if you would like to know more about the history of the wine regions there are museums and manor houses one can visit. There are so many wine estates and wine farms in the Cape that one could do wine tasting every day of the year and still not have visited every wine producer.

Table Mountain and Cape Town city tour: Cape Town is called the mother city of South Africa as it is the oldest city in the country. Experience the history from the Dutch East India Company to the liberation speech of Nelson Mandela. Wander along the bustling pedestrian zone lined with street vendors and musicians while Table Mountain watches over you. To get a better overview of the city we can take the cable car up Table Mountain (weather permitting) or take in the fantastic view from Signal Hill. We can also explore the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens which are on the other side of Table Mountain.

Hermanus Day tour: This tour is popularly known as the ” Whale Route “, as there is a good chance to see whales along these coastal roads and in Walker Bay during the winter and spring months, but this excursion has a lot to offer – even when there are no whales to admire. During our drive to Hermanus the view from the 400 m high Sir Lowry’s pass over the False Bay is breathtaking. Walker Bay is yet another wine growing area and for wine lovers it will be interesting to compare this most southerly wine area of Africa with the well-known regions of Stellenbosch. On our way back towards Cape Town we can take a walk in the Harold Porter Botanical gardens before taking the scenic coastal road back to Cape Town!

West Coast tour: Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and explore the vast tranquil space of the West Coast beaches. You can swim in the Lagoon at Langebaan, enjoy wine tasting at Darling or Malmesbury, find out more about prehistoric South Africa at the West Coast Fossil Park and admire the beautiful spring flowers in the West Coast National Park (usually August/ September). During the winter/ spring months there is also a possibility of seeing whales in the lagoon or along the coast.
