Cape Town Half Day Tours

Cape Town has so much to offer that, sometimes, achieving the right balance between resting and exploring can be a challenge in itself.  Our private half-day tours nail it: you can spend mornings ticking off attractions, leaving the afternoon free for lounging on beaches, enjoying restaurants or chilling in your luxurious residence. 


Among the options are a trip out to the Cape of Good Hope, including the upscale beach suburbs of Camps Bay and Llandudno, and the super-scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive over a mountain pass.  You’ll return via Boulder’s Bay – meaning a chance to meet its penguins.


Or there’s a Cape Town & Table Mountain spectacular, packing in the South African Museum, colourful Bo-Kaap and Greenmarket Square – home to an artsy flea market where jugglers and conjurers perform.


Bespoke or special-interest options are also available upon request, with advance notice.  Whatever you choose, a private guide will collect you, ensuring comfort throughout.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

When I asked Ash at Best of South Africa to give me some guidance on how to make the most of our trip to Cape Town and Franschhoek wine valley, I felt sure she would be able to send me in the right direction. It never occurred  to me that she would organise our …
