Tours

All of us at Acorn House gladly arrange day trips for you to the main attractions in and around Cape Town. Various reputable touring companies offer scheduled tours for groups up to 10/15 people. We offer our own private day trips exclusively to our guests. Beate has a long experience as a "Registered Tourist Guide“ in the Cape.

From Beate:

I have an interesting range of destinations in my portfolio and all my tours are tailor-made.

I love to take guests to the Townships; often described as a „no go area“ but almost a MUST if you want to get to know the „other side of Cape Town“. I often hear: "We could not imagine how warm we would be welcomed and how impressive it would be!“ or „South Africa is a wonderful country, but our visit to the Townships was the cherry on the cake.“

The Winelands are popular too. Not only because my guests can relax in the passenger seat and enjoy the scenery and wine tastings. I prefer wine farms that are off the beaten track. I avoid large farms, already well known and whose wines can be purchased in supermarkets everywhere. Do you prefer reds? Are you a fan of whites and bubblies? I know where to go to get you the best experience on your day in the Winelands.

A trip to Cape Point is very high on the agenda for every visitor to Cape Town. The landscape of the Peninsula is just breath taking. Provided you have a car, this is an easy to do self-drive tour. However, if you don't want to drive yourself and rather enjoy all the highlights en route without being disturbed – let me be your guide for the day!
