Cape of Good Hope

Hi Cape Town board!

I'm headed to Cape Town in the first week in July for 2.5 days. With limited time, I'm looking to get to the Cape of Good Hope to see, grab some photos and get back to town.

What's the best way to get there, given that I won't have a vehicle? What are the best tour companies?

How long is a reasonable amount of time to spend there? How long do most of the tour companies spend there?

How cold will it be at the Cape itself?

Thanks!

Table View, South...

The Cape of Good Hope is used to describe the whole Cape region. This includes the Peninsula, the city itself, the wine region, etc. So you will have to be a bit more specific about which area you want to visit. If you are referring to Cape Point then a search on that term should yield some results.

We have had two good Cape Penninsula day trips with a company called daytrippers over the years. They are worth consideration. See link

The weather can be pretty miserable at this time of year. As long as it's not raining then you'll be fine and I guess you will only know a few days prior how good the weather conditions are. Here is a company that offers a number of lovely tours to Cape Point: www.capepointroute.co.za/day-tours.php.

Have Fun!
