Unforgettable trip from Cape Town with Bazbus. Do it!!
Dayana_S, May 2023
I love Cape Town and this one day tour to the Cape of Good Hope & to see the super cute penguins was a special highlight. We had a small group of 6 people plus the driver and guide who was hilarious and so passionate about his job (I forget his name!!!). Boulders Beach is hard to is so clean and pretty thats without mentioning the fact there is a 1000 little penguins playing all over the place...amazing!! Extra boat trip to see the sea lions was interesting, they are huge. Bring a jacket the breeze was cold and I had to sit inside for a bit. The short hike to the cape point lighthouse is nice...views are breathtaking and no photos can do the panorama justice as the scale is so immense. Thank you Bazbus, picnic was delicious and we had such fun. 100% recommend.
Excellent day trip from Cape Town

My wife and I had a free day during our honeymoon in South Africa and decided to book this tour last minute, which ended up being one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town! The scenery was breathtaking, and the tour was very organised. We particularly enjoyed the stop at Cape Point and the opportunity to enjoy the incredible views. Thanks BazBus for helping us create unforgettable memories together.

Jingjing_L, May 2023
Our tour guide Robi and driver Bobbie are amazing! I was worried that since my phone cannot make calls and my hotel is not on the website picking up list. I chatted online before booking and confirmed my hotel pick up. Still the form asked me to confirm with local provider. While I was worried, they came and pick me up with no trouble at all Everything went great. I was able to see all the places I wanted to see in one day. Tour guide and driver are very friendly, patient, gave us enough time to enjoy. I will bring my family here next time and book this tour!!!!
Great day trip
John_E, Jan 2023
Great way of seeing some of the highlights around Cape Town in a day. The trip includes the cape of good hope, plus a stop to see penguins at boulders beach and a boat trip to see some seals. All was well organised and the bus was comfortable.
This experience was one...

Graham_O, Feb 2020
This was the most fantastic day out from Capetown and we would recommend 100% that you do it! Our guide Leon and driver Sammy were excellent hosts and Leons knowledge was second to none (his jokes not so). But all in all SUPERB!!!!!
a great day out and shared the trip with a lovely mix of people
Heather_R, Feb 2020
this was a great trip, well organised. the leaders had lots of energy, enthusiasm and information to share.
This is worth it!
Hidetake_E, Feb 2020
A lot was contained in this tour and I was surprised that we could do all that in just one day - visiting the seal colony as well as the penguin colony, a walk up to the old lighthouse at Cape Point as well as a walk along the cliff to Cape of Good Hope, light snack and picnic lunch and some picture stops along the way. Needless to mention a great guide and a great driver. Amazing!
Cape Tour!

Had a great time and we stopped a good amount to see things. The tour guide was knowledgeable. Lunch was just average, but nice that it was included along with some breakfast snacks!
Great day at the Cape
Susanne_P, Jan 2020
The day was great, all well organized. A little more time at the Cape would have been great. Also we were not picked up at the hotel and office place is not easy to find. More information for these guests is definitely necessary.
Interesting and beautiful tour
AdamH707, Nov 2019
The tour of the cape peninsula and point is well worth the visit. The landscape is rugged, beautiful and majestic. The tour guide was informative and the lunch provided was yummy and plenty. It was very sunny so take a hat.
