Cape Town Pre/Post Excursion

Great Central Location

Our four nights and three days in Cape Town include two full-day tours (lunch included) and a free day to explore at your leisure.  

The 5-Star Radisson Blu Hotel is centrally located between The Wharf (a great shopping, dining, drinking and entertainment center) and the ocean front walkway with many wonderful restaurants scattered along the way.

The Cape region is amazing; the area is more bio-diverse than a rain forest, blend that with spectacular ocean vista’s backdropped by rugged mountain peaks and you have one of the world’s most beautiful places.

After breakfast we will start the first of our two days of guided tours around the Western Cape Region.  

The Cape Point tour will take us south along the coast to the tip of the Cape Peninsula.  

The Cape Wine Region tour takes us east into the wine regions of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.  

Each tour will start around 8:30am and return late afternoon in time to freshen up and make dinner plans.  Our final full day in Cape Town is open to your desires and imagination.

Day Tours

The Cape Point tour includes a boat ride to Seal Island while in Hout Bay, several stops in the national park, visiting a thriving penguin colony, a very fine lunch outside with an ocean view and of course plenty of photo-op stops.

Our entire tour offers breath-taking vistas of the Cape’s coastline, mountains and the small villages hanging on its steep and scenic cliffs. 

While in the Cape Point National Park we’ll see some of the areas wildlife as we drive to Cape Point, the most southeastern tip of Africa where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet.  

A day in the wine country tour.  Jan van Riebeeck, the founder of Cape Town, produced the first wines in the Cape in 1659 and the tradition of producing some of the world’s finest wines has continued to this day.   

While driving through beautiful vine filled valleys dotted by lone mountain peaks we will see some of the best examples of the Old Dutch Manor Houses outside Holland.  With stops at three to four vineyards we will taste plenty of the regions best wines and cheeses.   

The towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek highlight the Dutch and French Huguenots influence in the development of the Cape’s wine region.
