    It depends on how many other people book, but usually the group sizes range from 4 to 12 people per tour. We run small group tours with no more than 13 travellers per vehicle or tour guide. This small group size lend a more personal touch to our tours, and keep the itinerary options a bit more flexible.

  • If the meals are not included in the tour price, will I need to pack food?

    Meals are usually not included, but there are plenty of time to buy food on tour. This offers the ideal opportunity to experience typical South African cuisine at local eating spots. - Breakfast for each overnight stay is available to purchase at your overnight accommodation or you buy a snack from supermarkets the previous evening. 3-star luxury B&B accommodation packages include a full breakfast for each overnight stay. - Lunch will be en route with limited time & limited options to choose from. - Dine at famous restaurants; or book meals with the overnight accommodation.

    Optional activities are offered and scheduled as part of the tour’s free-time to personalise your trip. It is not compulsory, but it turns a great trip into an unforgettable one.

    All optional activities scheduled on the tour are already reserved for the whole tour group by our operations team. Some optional activities are subject to weather conditions and can therefore only be paid and confirmed on the day of the activity.

Some budget accommodation providers may offer private bathrooms for private rooms – but this is subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. Please ask about this specifically when booking.
  • What time will I get back on the last day of the tour?

    Usually our tours are action packed and run until early evening or late afternoon – any time between 6pm to 10pm. We cannot advise an exact time that you will be dropped-off at the original departure point in Cape Town or Stellenbosch. It is not advisable to plan any scheduled arrangements (especially flights) for the first or last day of the tour; as traffic and weather can delay the approximate pick-up and drop-off times. hotspots2c makes all reasonable effort to keep to the tour’s timetable and no liability whatsoever can be accepted for unplanned changes or late arrivals due to factors out of our control.
  • Where and when will I get picked-up on the first day of the tour?

    Our included pick-up service can collect you from your accommodation in Cape Town, within a maximum ± 10km radius of the city center or from Stellenbosch. Pick-up times are early in the morning. Exact pick-up times are only advised a day before the tour depart, as we first need to wait for the most updated list of travelers and pick-up points to map out a suitable pick-up route. The free transfer shuttle will collect all travelers en route, with pickup times ranging from ±6am to 8am. Please contact us and check-in a day before your tour depart to get your more exact pick-up time.
