Golfing, Sightseeing and Whale Watching tours in Garden Route and Western Cape, South Africa


Golden Hill Guest House & Tours is situated in Somerset West near Cape Town. This area in the heart of the wine and golf region is ideal for day tours and a perfect starting point for Garden Route Tours. From here the numerous tourist attractions are quick and effortless to reach. Cape Town with the living Waterfront and the Table Mountain, the Cape of Good Hope, the historical cities of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, Hermanus - world known for whale watching - and the west Coast with the flower splendour in the spring can be visited in day tours.

The Golden Hill Guest House & Tours is a family run business since 1997. Wilfried and Melanie Franke are both registered Tour Guides and own the Golden Hill Guest House in Somerset West, from where the tours normally start. We are specialised in Garden Route Tours from this area to Port Elizabeth and offer also tours to the numerous Game Parks in the Eastern Cape.

Our guests will not only see all the normal tourist attractions but also some highlights ‘off the beaten track’.

We focus on German speaking guided tours but do provide tours in English as well. We only do small groups between 2 and 9 people. Flexibility is important for us and therefore we do not have certain departure dates. The guests can decide when they would like to start the tour and for how long. In our normal programme we offer 3 to 6 days to the Garden Route. But of course we offer tailor made tours as well. We are specialised in designing a tour specifically for our client’s personal interests.


We offer day tours not only in the Cape Town area (Winelands, Cape Peninsula, Hermanus, 4 Passes), but also to the West Coast and Overberg Region with Swellendam and Cape Agulhas.

Our normal Garden Route Tours are 3 to 6 days long. We do not have scheduled tours. Our clients can choose the departure date.

Besides normal sightseeing tours we also provide Golf tours along the Garden Route. George with the well known Fancourt Estate, Knysna with the 2 spectacular golf courses Simola and Pezula together with many more excellent courses offers a diversified tour that will satisfy the golf lovers heard.

All our Tour Guides are Satour or Theta registered, very experienced and knowledgeable. The tours are conducted either in a comfortable VW Kombi or Toyota Quantum with air conditioning. Depending on the tour the type of accommodation ranges from 3 to 5 star hotels or guest houses.
