Private tours

Enjoy the tourist sights and attractions on a privately guided tour with an accredited tour guide. Whatever you are interested in: the fascinating Cape of Good Hope, the cute penguins, or indulging in culinary delights and wine – it does not matter, I plan your trip.

The main tourist attractions of Cape Town are:

  • Table Mountain and the city centre
  • The Cape of Good Hope and the Penguin Colony
  • The wine growing region including Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl
  • The Overberg region with coastal town of Hermanus known for whale watching
  • Besides the above, there are more destinations to discover, like for example the West Coast with the San heritage and the Langebaan lagoon.

With a private tour you are leaving the crowds in the coaches behind. I am guiding you in a luxury van to these attractions in small groups of up to 6 people. The tour will only be attended by people you know – whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or as a group of up to 6 participants.

Please find following details on some tours:


Cape Peninsula Tour

A Cape Peninsula tour offers a lot: a breathtaking panorama, a unique landscape and the history of trade between Europe and Asia.

The main attractions and possible destinations are:

  • The Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point
  • Simon’s Town and the beach of Boulders with African penguins
  • The ostrich farm on the peninsula
  • The scenic road “Chapman’s Peak Drive”
  • A boat trip to Seal Island (Hout Bay)
  • The botanical garden of Kirstenbosch
  • A wine tasting in the wine-growing area of Constantia
  • Signal Hill with a fascinating panorama of the city centre and the waterfront. Venturous book a tandem jump with a paraglider.

The route is customised according to your wishes and the season. Not all of the above attractions can be visited in a single tour.

It is advisable to start earlier in the summer months because of local tourists contributing to heavy traffic.

Cape Winelands Tour

 

When grapes were pressed for the first time in the 17th century, no one could guess what a success viticulture would take at the Cape. Meanwhile, the wines of the Cape are world famous.

The largest wine-growing region lies northeast of Cape Town and encloses the villages Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. The vineyards nestle here along the hills and valleys of the mountain ranges.

Many wineries have excellent restaurants that invite to enjoy food in a beautiful setting.

In addition to grapes, the region is known for olive growing.

A Cape Winelands Tour offers various possibilities:

  • Wine tasting
  • Beer tasting
  • Brandy tasting
  • Olive and olive oil tasting
  • Stellenbosch (historic town)
  • Franschhoek (Huguenot monument)
  • Paarl (Taal monument)

I am happy to design a private tour that meets your expectations. Not all of the above attractions can be visited in a single tour.

Whales and Wine

A beautiful coastal road leads us from False Bay to Walker Bay with one of the most popular coastal towns in the Western Cape, Hermanus.

Between June and November there is a big chance that you can spot whales near the coast. The restaurants along the coast in Hermanus invite for lunch while whale you are looking out for whales.

The restaurants of wine estates in the “heaven and earth”-valley close to Hermanus offer excellent wine paired with delicious food. For wine lovers, a trip to the valley is a must. It is wonderfully picturesque and has perfect terroir for top quality wines.

The highlights of this route are:

  • Whale watching in Hermanus (June to November)
  • Wine tasting
  • Drive along the scenic coastal road from Gordon’s Bay to Kleinmond (Clarens Drive)
  • Visiting the penguin colony at Betty’s Bay
  • Visiting the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden in the Koegelberg Biosphere Reserve
  • Rotary Way Scenic Drive
  • Return to Cape Town via Sir Lowry’s Pass with its magnificent view of the False Bay

The tour will be designed according to your wishes. Not all of the above attractions can be visited in a single tour.

West Coast Route: Clicking sounds and a lagoon

Leaving Cape Town northbound, one follows the West Coast Route. The landscape along the coast is dominated by the ocean and sand. The area is known for its harsh and dry climate.

Only between August and October the barren landscape changes. With winter rains the area turns into a sea of flowers, it is flower season.

The West Coast National Park has a unique birdlife of international importance and the warmer water of the picturesque Langebaan Lagoon with the fascinating sandy beach invites for a bath.

“Eve’s Footprint” was discovered in Kraalbaai in 1995 – fossil footprints of a woman who left them in the sand. She was about 1.40 m tall and walked on the beach about 117,000 years ago.

The San were the aborigines on the soils of today’s South Africa. A reconstructed San village serves as a backdrop for the introduction into the everyday life of the tribe.

The wine estates of the Swartland invite for a visit and a wine tasting.

Main attractions of the route are:

  • West Cost National Park with a stay at the Langebaan lagoon
  • !Kwa tthu: A San guides us through a reconstructed village
  • Bloubergstrand with postcard views of the metropolis of Cape Town
  • Wine estates in the interior (optional)

I am happy to design a private tour that meets your expectations. Not all of the above attractions can be visited in a single tour.

Chocolate and Wine

Hand crafted is manufactured in South Africa! And I mean that in the full sense: from cocoa bean to chocolate bar!

Be introduced in the production of the raw material and various types of chocolate. Of course, we will also taste samples in the factory and learn about the fruit and the production.

The tour guides us further to a confectionery which creates products from Belgian chocolate raw material. Yes, we have to try here as well.

What would be a trip on the Cape without wine? That’s why some wine maker offer chocolate and wine pairing – mouth-watering.

The highlights of the tour:

  • Visit to a chocolate factory and tasting
  • Visit to a confectionery with products from imported raw material
  • Tasting of chocolate and wine

Spoil yourself!

The tour will be designed according to your wishes.
