- About us
The duration of this tour is three days, with two nights sleep-over in Stellenbosch and Hermanus respectively, before returning to Cape Town on the last day. This tour is guaranteed to relax you and leave you inspired and re-juvenated. A visit to Hermanus out of the whale season (July to November) is still a must, as it is a lovely coastal town even in winter. With majestic mountains, wine-tasting, botanical gardens and a stunning variety of art galleries and book shops, you will soon see why.
On day one we start in Cape Town with a typical full day peninsula tour. All entrances are included as per our full- day scheduled peninsula tour. We take a coastal drive past Muizenberg en-route to Stellenbosch, where we will overnight.
After a full day of activity, having visited Cape Point and the seal colony, (we visit the penguin colony at Stony Point on our last day, entrance included), we settle down in Stellenbosch at a 3-star hotel or similar, on a bed- and -breakfast basis. This typical Dutch-style town has many restaurants and night spots frequented by the students of this university town.
After dark this busy town becomes more relaxed with sidewalk cafe’s playing host to tourists and young, inspiring minds. The famous Jan Smuts walked these very same streets as a student before becoming the leader of our country during the first half of the twentieth century.
The bird life will delight birdwatchers and novices alike. We also visit the penguin colony at Stony Point and round the tour off with a spectacular coastal drive to Cape Town via Gordons Bay.
