Cape Point and Boulders Beach Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    The Cape Peninsula is a must explore for any traveler visiting South Africa, the breath-taking beauty of this picturesque trip can’t be substituted by any other day trip in the Cape.  On the Peninsula Tour you will move around the entire Cape peninsula and be shown the wonders of Cape Town - from the pristine beaches, to the spectacular sight of Cape Point, where the oceans meet. Time permitting, you be able to will make a stop at the sensational Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. 

    Situated along the Atlantic Seaboard, the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay have been awarded Blue Flag status, offering pristine white beaches and beautiful, clear waters that make these beaches highly popular with locals and visitors alike.

    The small fishing village of Hout Bay is often jokingly referred to as the ‘Republic of Hout Bay’ by Cape Town locals, and feels like an entirely separate town. A beautiful beach, delicious fresh seafood, bustling markets, and plenty of restaurants make this suburb a must-visit on any Cape tour. You will also have the option of going to admire the thousands of seals that inhabit the Seal Island.

    Cape Point and the spectacular nature reserve that lies in this area are some of the most famous landmarks in Cape Town, and for good reason. Situated on the very tip of the peninsula, with the Indian Ocean on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the area spans landscapes of rugged cliffs, lush fynbos, and vast open spaces – no Cape Town tour is complete without a visit to Cape Point.

    Simon's Town is the seat of the SA Navy, and has a charming coastal town atmosphere and a vibrant history. Here you can find a thriving harbour, a toy museum, navy museum, and plenty of other sights – nearby is also Boulders Beach, which is one of the only places in the world that you can swim alongside penguins. 

    The quaint suburb of Kalk Bay runs along the Main Road, with the False Bay coastline running on one side, and the mountain on the other. Along the Main Road lies a host of veritable treasure troves, from antique shops to costume shops, bakeries, restaurants, and plenty more. The area is also excellent for whale watching during whale season (June to November).

    Time permitting you'll visit the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, offer visitors a haven of peace and serenity at the foot of the Devil's Peak mountain. Let yourself be enchanted and your senses roam free in the sights, smells, and sounds of this luscious forest.

    Outstanding tour
    Our guide, Christo, was personable, intelligent, highly knowledgeable, friendly, and, most importantly, accommodating to all of our needs and requests. He arrived early in an extremely comfortable Mercedes van, and drove us carefully and safely to each of the vineyards and other enroute tour stops. His conversational English was well beyond perfect --- he is a mature, college-educated "local" that any travelling couple/family/business person would enjoy spending the day with, whether out enjoying wines or any other aspect of the beautiful Franschhoek area. My wife and I agree that our expectations were vastly exceeded, and we hope to find a way to stay in touch with Christo in the future. We recommend this day tour without any reservations whatsoever.

    Airport transfer
    We were staying at the Plumwood Inn who organised our Airport transfer with Platinum Connexion. Our driver arrived early and in a luxury Mercedes (I think, it was still dark out as our pickup was 5 am) We arrived at the airport smoothly with plenty of time before our flight. I would highly recommend Platinum Connexion for any transfer you require! Thank you.

    Great service and flexibility
    Osman and his team were great, and were flexible with our schedule and trying to cover as much as possible in our short time. However, a couple of the guides sometimes were deviating from the plan without letting us know, or when asked kept saying it's a surprise which threw us off a little. But given how flexible they were overall, it was wonderful, and took out the guess work of going to see things in a short time.

    Very disappointed customer
    I had a very stressful and unpleasant experience with the the service rendered by Platinum Connexion. I had arranged with Osman for the transporting of myself and my 4 groomsmen to and from my wedding venue a month before my wedding and then confirmed everything with him the day before the wedding just to make sure everything was in place. The driver of the van had arrived 30min later than what we had arranged for! To make matters worse, there was zero communication from Osman and his driver that they would be arriving 30min late. I personally had to call him and his driver about 5 times to find out when they would be arriving for pick up. If someone could have informed me that they would be arriving 30min late then I would have been able to make alternative arrangements. As you can imagine this was an extremely stressful experience for me on my wedding day. To top things off, I did not receive any appology, just an invoice a day later. This is my first 1 star review on Trip Advisor and hopefully my last.

    Great service
    We were a group of 9 people and stayed in the Le Franschhoek Villas. We used this service to get us around the wine country. It was a great and Rees, our main driver, could not have been more helpful. He was with us all day and gave some great recommendations that help made the experience even better. We also used them in the evenings. No request was a problem and no time was too late to get picked up. A great bunch of guys and the cars are of an excellent standard.

    Driver to Stellenbosch
    I had an important meeting at the University of Stellenbosch and was told to hire a driver from Platinum Connexion. The driver arrived about 15 minutes late. Then he I paid him to wait as the meeting was to be 1 hour. When I came out, much to my surprise he had been reassigned by the dispatcher to go to Capetown. I was told another driver was coming. After waiting an hour a driver finally did show up. My umbrella and other items which I was told were safe to leave in the van. took a journey to Capetown. Thankfully everything was returned.

    great service
    We used Platinum Connexion to visit the local wineries & for transport to & from our hotel into town . The driver Reeze October planned our trips & sorted out all the info we needed . He was very helpful & looked after us very well indeed booking all the wineries & restaurants for us ,picking us up & waiting while we did our tasting . A great service & made our stay in Franschhoek Special. If all there drivers are as good as Reeze then they are well worth using .

    5-Star Service with a Smile
    We would like to thank Osman and his fantastic team at Platinum Connexion for their top notch service during our stay in Franschoek. Working with a group of 60 corporate guests, flying in to Cape Town, on various different flights from all over RSA and even France, on their way to a high-end product launch in Franschoek, we required the services of a knowledgeable and suitably upmarket shuttle company. Osman and his team, recommended to us by the Le Franschoek Hotel, put us at ease from the start with their fantastic service. Guests were collected on time each time and arrived at their destination with smiles. Similarly, shuttling guests back to the airport after their stay, and over 3 days, without any hiccups. The Platinum drivers were friendly, well dressed, well organised and professional at all times. Thank you for your fantastic service. We will, without a doubt, be making use of Platinum Connexion's services in future, and highly recommend them for stress free, professional corporate or personal travel experience.

    Excellent organising and value for money
    We booked a VIP incentive group into the Franchoek area and Platinum was efficient, organised and we had NO glitches. The transfers, of which there were many, at various times, we arranged perfectly. We would definitely use them again. Thank you to Osman.

    Convenient service and fair pricing
    We stayed at the Plumwood Inn and used Platinum Connexion several times for evening visits at gourmet restaurants a little out of town like La Motte and Franschhoek Kitchen. On-time service and fair pricing at 100-150 R for a return trip - after dinner the restaurant can call them and they'll be there in 10-15 minutes.

    Excellent Driver / Taxi in Franschoek / Cape Town area
    We stayed at the Franschoek Hotel & Spa and were initially picked up by David at the airport. Throughout our 5 day stay in the wine region we used David and Osman as drivers / guides and friends. They helped / assisted us with the best vineyards and tourist attractions to visit in the area and ensured they were available at all times to shuttle us back and forth. Even going out of their way to book restaurants and attractions for us. We could not recommend their service more highly. Thank you for a wonderful time in South Africa. Tracy & Brian
