Grab your swimsuit and hiking shoes – it’s time to check out the towns of False Bay. On this private tour, you’ll meet your guide in the morning at Cape Town Central Station where you’ll receive your hop on and hop off ticket and prepare for a relaxing morning train ride to a few local harbour suburbs situated around the False Bay area.
Once we arrive in False Bay and the charming town of Miuzenberg, we’ll disembark for a quick tour of iconic Miuzenberg Beach and learn a bit about South African surf history as this is one of the best surf beaches in the country. You may be able to spot a great white shark here, depending on the season. On a beautiful day, it’s best to walk along the coast to Kalk Bay, but we can always grab a train if the weather isn’t great for a walk on the beach. If that’s the case there are other towns in the area we can check out, all of which have a great, local vibe.
Since you might be getting hungry by now, we’ve included some options for lunch in the price of the tour. We can either pop into a famous fish and chip shop, or if the weather is nice and you prefer it, we can have a beach picnic. Either way, we’ll make sure you have a good meal.
After lunch, we’ll head to a local bar for a farewell drink. At that point, you can decide whether you want to explore the rest of Cape Point, head back to a secluded beach, or catch a train back to Cape Town.
We give you the choice to return by train or taxi at your convenience. In the unlikely event, the trains are not running that day, we’ll use a vehicle to drive to False Bay and back.
This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
