Continue along the coastline to Boulders Beach where you can view a colony of penguins. Stop in the naval port of Simon?s Town, the country?s third oldest European settlement.

Cape Town City Tour
Enjoy the ultimate 'Mother City' experience, designed to orientate you and give you an insight into the magic of Cape Town. Weather permitting, take a cable car up to Table Mountain (own account) before visiting South Africa?s oldest building ? the Castle. Explore the Company's Gardens, and continue on a scenic tour past the Parliament buildings, City Hall and Slave Lodge. Travel through the historic Malay Quarter and the colorful Bo-Kaap, and end with a diamond cutting tour.

Cape Winelands Tour
Enjoy a whole day dedicated to the indulgence and splendor of Africa?s premier wine region. Escape to the beauty and tranquility of the Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch Winelands. The first stop is the Afrikaans Language Monument, perched on Paarl Rock, which offers sweeping views of the surrounding area. Then continue onto wineries to sample wines of merit before visiting the Huguenot Monument and Museum in Franschhoek, where you will discover the origins of the world renowned wine producing region.

Hermanus Tour

Explore the riveting District Six Museum (closed Sundays) for a sharp reminder of the past, then tour Langa, the oldest apartheid housing scheme in the Cape, and visit the impressive Tsoga Environmental Gardens. We want you to enjoy a hands-on experience of life in a township, so you'll be visiting an informal spaza shop, popping into a shebeen (pub), and visiting a hostel. Tastes of the daily life of a community. Following your tour of the township, continue to the Nelson Mandela Gateway to connect with your scheduled tour to Robben Island. Cruel home of our Nelson Mandela for so many years, it's a highly charged and emotional moment when you visit the site of this suffering, and realize how far South Africa has come from those days.
