Enjoy a full day private tour with Explore Sideways which will take you on a breathtaking journey around the spectacular Cape Peninsula where you will get to take a stroll with the penguins at Boulders Beach, stand at the historic Cape Of Good Hope lighthouse where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet in all their glory, drink in the spectacular views from the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive, dine in the vibrant village of Simon’s Town and enjoy wine tasting at historic Constantia.

Champman’s Peak Drive, know to locals as ‘Chappies’, is known as one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world and made it onto the official East India charts in 1607 after the skipper of a British ship was becalmed in what is now known as Hout Bay and sent his pilot, John Chapman ashore to look for provisions.

The African Penguins at Boulders Beach will love the time you spend with them, they need the attention, it’s just one of those things these unbelievably cute and very famous birds thrive on, it is this irresistible quality of these Penguins that brings over 60 000 visitors to Simon’s Town every year to photograph and spend time with these little wonders of nature.

Your visit to Cape Point will take you through the Cape Point Nature Reserve, which contains diverse fauna and flora unique to this narrow stretch of land, to the first lighthouse built in 1859 standing at 238 meters above sea-level, reached by a short trip in the Flying Dutchman funicular. A visit to this historic navigational landmark makes it is easy to understand why this was named the ‘Cape of Storms’ by Bartholomeu Dias in 1488, by day a navigational landmark and by night a dangerous magnet to ships caught by menacing fog and violent storms.

Vibrant and colourful, the Village of Simon’s Town has always played a major role in the maritime history of the Cape of Good Hope with its key point in world navel strategy and central point of maritime trade between East and West. Chosen by and named after Simon van der Stel as the safest shelter from violent winter northwest winds, Simon’s Town still reflects much of the history of its naval past mixed with many other cultural influences that make dining here a feast in more ways than one.

Your wine tasting experience in Constantia will be one that is surrounded by history wherever you look. Yet another of the gems discovered by Simon van der Stel Constantia is nestled in the palm of a beautiful mountain range and with its lush setting and moderate temperatures Constantia has become one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the Southern Hemisphere, a history that has been completely uninterrupted for 300 hundred years.

After a day like this touring around the Cape Peninsula there can be no doubt that you will have experienced the best the Cape has to offer along its Peninsula with your Explore Sideways personal guide and you will be ready to plan your next unique Explore Sideways adventure.
