ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Except for the trip to Robben Island, this is a delightful tour. If you don't like being crushed by other people, skip Robben Island. We enjoyed a picnic with a spectacular view on the way to see the penguins, a walk around the top of Table Mountain with an ever changing view and wine tasting. We made arrangements with Explore ahead of our trip to visit the Kirestenbosch Gardens the morning before we flew to Johannesburg. Explore also arranged for us to take a later flight to Johannesburg so we wouldn't have as long a layover in the Johannesburg airport.

Very worthwhile. It's a beautiful city and surroundings. Spectacular scenery. Another side of Africa that you must see.

Wonderful overview of Cape Town and the surrounding area. Recommend you do this extension if you do the wildlife safari, since it is such a long flight from the States. Beautiful area with mountains, water and scenic drives.

Cape Town, South Africa is an amazing place. Fabulous scenery & climate. Our terrific guide shared her town with pride & understanding.
