Full day
R3 000 per vehicle and driver guide
 bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

Cape Town is South Africa's oldest city and therefore fondly called our 'Mother City'. Our city's rich history embraces many different peoples and cultures from various parts of the world, which, over centuries, have blended into a vibrant and diverse population. To get a glimpse of this richness, a tour of the city and its historic buildings, architecture and gardens is highly recommended. Your tour will not be restricted to the city centre and can include destinations such as:
 - the Table Mountain Cableway
- the V&A Waterfront and the departure point for Robben Island
- the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens,
- the beautiful Scenic Routes along the Atlantic Coast up to  as far as Hout Bay
- and the Wine Estates of the Constantia Valley and Durbanville


THE CAPE PENINSULA  AND CAPE POINT CIRCULAR ROUTE

Half Day

R 3 000 per vehicle and driver guide
 
Full day
R 3 400 per vehicle and driver guide
 
bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

This tour, which culminates in a visit to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the southernmost tip of the Cape Peninsula, is probably the most popular of all the Cape Town tours on offer locally. Spectacular natural scenery awaits you on the circular route along the Atlantic and False Bay shores of the Peninsula. Highlights include:
 

This tour offers a combination of the main attractions on  of the Cape of Good Hope Circular Route and the Cape Winelands Circular Route, which  and includes wine tasting and a visit to the historic town of Stellenbosch.
It is a perfect solution if you are very short of time,  but certainly not a substitute for the individual tours of the Cape Peninsula Circula Route  and Cape Winelands Region.


 

THE CAPE  WINELANDS  CIRCULAR ROUTE

 

Half-day
R 3 100 per vehicle and driver guide
 
Full day
R3 500 per vehicle and driver guide
 bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

 

Beautiful wine estates and Cape Dutch homesteads, against the backdrop of the lovely Western Cape Mountains and historic towns, especially Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, are the main attractions.

If on top of that you love to enjoy fantastic wines you just cannot afford to miss this tour. The wine-growing region of the Western Cape stretches far and wide and is often referred to as the Boland (upper country).

For practical purposes however, a day tour of the Winelands has to be aimed at a section of the Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and Somerset West Region where we visit some of the top Wine Estates of the Western Cape..
 

COMBINED TOUR  OF THE CAPE WINELANDS  AND CAPE POINT NATURE RESERVE

 

Full day
R4 400 per vehicle and driver guide
 
bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

This tour offers a combination of attractions on the Cape of Good Hope Circular Route and the Cape Winelands Circular Route, which includes wine tasting and historic Stellenbosch.

Perhaps the most time efficient of all the Cape Town Tours on offer but, if you have the time, certainly not a substitute for the individual Peninsula and Winelands tours!

Full day
R 4 000 per vehicle and driver guide

HERMANUS  CIRCULAR ROUTE  AND WHALE WATCHING

bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

This, the most delightful of scenic coastal drives, is not to be missed. You travel along the beautiful Clarence Drive where awesome mountain ranges rise from the rugged eastern shoreline of False Bay and through the many quaint coastal villages. The return trip takes you through beautifully cultivated apple and pear orchards and over two mountains passes.

THE WEST COAST:  LANGEBAAN AND SPRING FLOWERS  OR THE FOSSIL PARK

Full day
R 3 900 per vehicle and driver guide

bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

On a day tour of the West Coast, one can travel as far north as St Helena Bay and Velddrif. During the spring flower season (normally the second half of August and early September), a visit to the various nature reserves and other areas where an abundance of spring flowers can be enjoyed is simply a must. This aside, the West Coast –with its fishing communities, abundance of interesting little bays and fascinating history and prehistory – makes for a really worthwhile day tour all year-round offering many other attractions such as:
 
One of the richest fossil sites in the world may be visited at the West Coast Fossil Park, where 200 different kinds of fossilised animals, which lived in the area 5 million years ago, have been discovered.
- Bird watching at Langebaan Lagoon
- The quaint village of Paternoster
- Take your postcard perfect picture of Table Mountain from Blouberg Strand

A DAY TRIP  TO CAPE AGULHAS:  THE SOUTHERN MOST TIP OF AFRICA

 

Full day
R4 600 per vehicle and driver guide
 
bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

The extremities of landmasses have always captured our imagination.  To stand at the southernmost tip of the African continent would certainly rank high within the realm of this sentiment. 

Apart from this highlight, the tour takes one over Sir Lowry’s Pass and Houwhoek Pass to Hermanus where, in the whale season (normally July to November), a few moments will be spared for whale watching. 

The area has a rich history of maritime hardships, to which the Shipwreck Museum at Bredasdorp bears graphic testimony.  Enjoy a glass of bubbly at the southern most tip of Africa and dip your toes in both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, followed by lunch at the Light House restaurant .
 
Full day

THE BREEDE  RIVER VALLEY  (TULBAGH, CERES AND WORCESTER)

Full day
R 3 800 per vehicle and driver guide
 
bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

Do you wonder what lies behind the beautiful mountains beyond Paarl? Well, nestled between two awesome mountain ranges, you will find the beautiful and fertile Breede River Valley with an abundance of water for agriculture, magnificently cultivated orchards, vineyards and historical towns.

Getting there is half the pleasure as the tour takes you along some of the finest historical mountain passes. The tour also offers an opportunity to sample some of the fine wines of the region.
 
Full day

KAROO LANDSCAPE AND MATJIESFONTEIN  OR MONTAGU

Full day
R5 000 per vehicle and driver guide
 
bookings@capetownprivatetours.co.za

 

En route to Matjiesfontein we travel through the scenic Du Toit's Kloof Mountain Pass and the fertile Slanghoek Valley. Then on to the historic Michell's Pass to the town of Ceres and its fertile fruit-growing valley. Soon the abundant orchards give way to the arid landscape of the Karoo (the Khoi word for "land of thirst") where vast open spaces stretch from one far horizon to the other. Experience the solitude and serenity so unique to this semi-desert of South Africa. Enjoy lunch in the historic and quaint little village of Matjiesfontein.

The return journey takes us through the Hex River Valley where autumn brings a kaleidoscope of colours to the lush vineyards. In the Breede River Valley we pass the town of Worcester on our way to the Du Toit's Kloof Pass heading back to Cape Town. This more direct return route is also used on the outward journey if insufficient time is available.

Alternatively, we head for the quaint town of  Montagu,  well known for its hot mineral springs, scenic mountains, vineyards and orchards, and the  exceptional quality of the apples, pears, apricots and peaches grown in the Koo Valley.

OVERNIGHT STAY AT SUTHERLAND AND A VISIT TO SALT, THE RENOWNED SOUTH AFRICAN LARGE TELESCOPE 

 

A Two Day Private Excursion

R11 00 to return via Seweweekspoort

From Matjiesfontein, we head deeper into the Great Karoo for a further 130km to reach the high plateau of the Roggeveld, where the town of Sutherland is situated at an altitude of 1458 metres. Sutherland is the home of SALT, situated even higher, the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere and proudly called "South Africa's Giant Eye". At an altitude of 1759m the atmosphere is thin here, the air is crystal-clear and in this arid region cloud-cover is infrequent.

For these reasons this site has gained international status as one of the world's foremost stations for astronomical observation. The onsite guided tour and fascinating observations will leave even the less knowledgeable visitor with new insights, broadening their perspective forever.  or the return journey can be made via the breathtaking Seweweeks Poort and the beautiful Little Karoo.
