Great tour, driver very knowledgeable and pleasant. Penguins a bit disappointing as the set up has changed and access to the beach itself was not clear. Restaurant under construction so if you are looking to have lunch be prepared to have to dine in Simonstown.

Dear Valued client Thank you for a wonderful review.We are glad that one of our guides delievered interms of his knowledge of the sites visited.It is a bit sad that the penguins didnt really suffice your expectations but please note that we have lost 90 percent of them since the beggining of the 20th century and the few that we still have in the wild are expected to go extinct in the next 20 to 30 years.This is what has led to the securing of the beach to try and save them from dying out.Please note that a much closer view of them is still available but only from the boardwalk.We hope to see you again in future. Kindest regards
