2023 GP Cape Pinisular Tour

Tara and I recently had the pleasure of touring the Cape Peninsula with Lloyd and Dan, two of our Private guides in Cape Town. The highlight of the trip was without a doubt the spontaneous picnic set-up that was laid out for us in the national park. A glass in hand, an assortment of delicious paninis and great conversation with views over the deep blue waters of the ocean. Another memorable moment was swimming at boulders beach with the penguins! This is a must-do in summer and I would encourage everyone that does this tour to take along a swimming costume. If you come prepared it allows you the freedom to really immerse yourself as opposed to being a penguin-watching bystander. Swimming near these cheeky-suited birds was much more fun. We were spoilt with delicious coffee and a pastry at Kalk bay whilst walking through the working kitchen of a local bakery whilst also enjoying the tunes of a gentleman playing the piano. We did not go to the typical tourist traps but did not feel we missed out on anything, in fact, our Cape Peninsula tour was perfect because of Lloyd and Dan’s quiet understanding of what made Tara and me happiest…. the best part is that we didn’t need to ask for anything, they day just unfolded as if they knew what we wanted before we even knew we wanted it. A special thanks to Lloyd and Dan for their warm hospitality and for sharing their intimate knowledge of the Cape with us.
