  •   My girlfriend and I don't really like tours at all, but this trip felt more like a day in a minivan with friends than a tour. Great value. Amazing people. Amazing guide. Easiest 5/5 rating I've ever done.

  •   If, like me, you’re not into the cacophony of a huge tour bus, this one’s for you. Brendan, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and informative, and the tour includes all the ‘must-sees’ along Cape Point, plus the added bonus of a stop in Bo-Kaap and...More

WHATS OUR STORY?

BY TRAVELLERS, FOR TRAVELLERS

 

We want you to experience Cape Town with all of your senses

Lucky and Lost was started by two backpackers who are passionate about traveling and people, but ‘hate’ tours in the traditional sense!

We realized that our most memorable travel experiences were with locals who showed us the best places to go, how to experience them and the friends we made along the way.

We want to provide the same experience for other travellers in our home town.

That’s why we do things a little differently …

We swim upstream

Our tour goes in the opposite direction of everyone else, that’s because we do it like a local and crowds aren’t exactly our idea of fun

Small Groups

13 people max. That equals a great day out whether you are a lone wolf, happy couple or traveling in a pack -as long as you are fun at heart

Guides who love this city

We only use local guides who are stoked to show and share with you stories, knowledge and tips about their home town 

Local Cuisine

Expect to experience South Africa with your taste buds! All food included and lovingly prepared for you to enjoy

Local  Music

We love music and we love local! When we put them together you will get a real taste of the diversity that is South Africa. Trust us on this one

OUR TOURS

 

Instead of offering a bunch of different tours and doing them half heartedly we focus on 2 unmissable Cape Town experiences.

Cape Peninsula Day Tour and Cape Wine Day Tour

Departing between 8 and 9am we combine local sights, flavours, sounds and charm to make your day unforgettable!

CAPE PENINSULA DAY TOUR

We start the day in colourful Bo kaap before heading down the Peninsula to visit our penguin friends at Boulders beach. After a picnic lunch packed with South African flavour and hiking at the Cape of Good Hope we get to taste some famous South African wine. The breathtaking Chapmans Peak Drive leads us back along the coastal road to Camps Bay and the city center.

if you only have a few days in Cape Town then you should definitely spend one with us!

Remember that this is a group tour with maximum of 13 people and a minimum of 4 people.

NO HIDDEN EXTRA COSTS

PRIVATE TOURS

Rolling in a crew, on honeymoon with your boo or just want some extra leg room? Whatever your reasoning our private tours are for you!

We’ve always been known for keeping our tours at a relaxed pace but private tours allow you to take it one step further and enjoy our itineraries at your own pace while being accompanied by one of our friendly guides.

You can checkout our existing itineraries below but if you’re interested in doing something a little different or would like us to design a custom itinerary for you just send us an email

PRIVATE CAPE WINE TOUR

 

We have had to taste A LOT of wine but it was worth it!

We have curated a wine tour that showcases 4 completely different wine farms and most importantly shares the stories behind the people that make the Cape and its grapes so unique. We visit farms in Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek but our best part is enjoying a 3 course South African lunch surrounded by a majestic mountain range in the quirky garden of a local legend! Or is the chocolate our best part? Maybe it’s the cheese and wine…

 PRIVATE CAPE PENINSULA DAY TOUR

We start the day in colourful Bo Kaap before heading down the Peninsula to visit our penguin friends at Boulders beach penguin colony. Follow that with some hiking at the Cape of Good Hope and treat yourself to a tasting of some famous South African wine. The breathtaking Chapmans Peak Drive leads us back along the coastal road to Camps Bay.

if you only have a few days in Cape Town then you should definitely spend one with us!

We are not fond of rules but here are a few guidelines to make the best of your day:

Please wear comfortable walking shoes

Bring a hat & sunscreen (spf30+), the African sun is serious!

Bring a refillable water bottle. It really does help the environment!

Pack a swimming costume and towel so you can dry off after lunch if you decide to have a swim.

Pack something warm, the weather in Cape Town can change quicker than it takes Brendan to eat a large pizza
