Tour description provided by Viator

Take a scenic drive down to the stunning Cape Point, part of the Table Mountain National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This half day tour is the easiest way to see some of the most spectacular scenery in South Africa, taking in the Chapmans Peak coastal road, Hout Bay Harbour, and the African Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach.
Start your half day tour to the Cape Point by driving along the rugged Atlantic coastline with its towering mountains and white sandy beaches. Soon, you will arrive in Hout Bay, the historical harbour and fishing point, overlooked by the impressive Sentinal peak. From here, you will begin the spectacular coastal drive along the world-famous Chapmans Peak Drive (if open). This road hugs the near vertical mountain face between Hout Bay and Noordhoek. Arriving at the Cape Point Nature Reserve, you will make your way down to Cape Point. This rocky outcrop was known as the Cape of Storms due to the number of vessels that were shipwrecked along the coastline. You will have the opportunity to walk to the old lighthouse at the Point. Returning from Cape Point you will follow the coastal road along False Bay, through the historic navy base, Simon's Town. You will then have the chance to stop and view the world-famous African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach (at own expense & time permitting). Then pass through the popular holiday resort of Muizenberg before returning to the Cape Town City Centre.
