The Cape Peninsula is a stunning drive, but why not add to the experience by climbing into your vintage WWII sidecar with your expert guide. First, you wind your way down to Hout Bay, a thrilling route passing trendy suburbs and exquisite beach locations.  Board a boat heading out to the island, keeping an eye out for dolphin pods, whales and abundant birdlife. Enter the water, for an unforgettable snorkelling experience, the seals surrounding you, often mimicking your movements. Your journey continues on to the oak-lined village lanes of Noordhoek and then to the Cape Peninsula. Here, you admire panoramic vistas from the Cape Point Lighthouse, reached by the funicular. Hiking along the trails, you look out for indigenous flora and fauna, and explore some of the rock pools, shipwreck beaches and sheltered coves of this historic region. The journey continues to Simon’s Town, where you go in search of a colony of rogue penguins, taking the opportunity to take stand-up paddle boards across kelp beds and viewing these fascinating creatures from a different vantage point.  Explore the harbour town of Kalk Bay, chatting to the fishing folk and browsing through bohemian and arty shops. End your tour sampling craft beer and local gin at Muizenberg, soaking up the atmospheric vibe, surrounded by surfers and interesting locals.
