Tours in and around Cape Town at Getlocal Africa
Cape Point Nature Reserve
ROUND TRIP TO CAPE POINT
This is one of the most exciting and scenic trips that you can, and really should take while in Cape Town. You will travel along the Atlantic Seaboard with stops at some of the most iconic beaches in the Cape. You will have the option to take a short boat trip from Hout Bay to Seal Island, then drive the famed Chapmans Peak drive carved into the mountain with views that stretch to the horizon. Cape Point will impress and delight you as you stand on the edge of the African continent and look out over endless blue seas. There are many highlights, but one has to be Boulders Beach where you can walk with the Breeding Colony of African Penguins.

THE CAPE WINELANDS
South Africa produces some of the world’s best wines and the Winelands are set in a series of beautiful valleys with quaint villages and historical Cape Dutch homesteads. Wine tasting is a great way to spend the day - and a tour is the way to go. Drinking and driving not being an option. Our website also has some interesting cycle tours of the winelands, for families or for the more energetic.

Cape Town has much to see. The inner city has the bright coloured houses and vibrant community of the Cape Malay Quarter, the Company Gardens, Parliament Buildings, and the ferry to Robben Island where many political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, spend many years. A trip on the Cable Way to the top of Table Mountain is obligatory when you are in Cape Town.

RED SIGHTSEEING HOP ON HOP OFF BUS
One of the best and most exciting ways to get around to all the hot spots of Cape Town is on the Red Sightseeing Hop on Hop off Bus. You can get off at any of the stops, enjoy the place in your own time, and re-board when the next bus stops and continue the circuit. The best is the open top upstairs where your hair can blow free, you get the salty smell of the sea and hear the waves crash.
