THE CLASSIC CAPE TOWN EXPERIENCE

The Mother City never disappoints, come and enjoy an amazing day, and leave with great memories

overview

Welcome to the Mother City! On this full-day tour you have to prepare yourself to have all your senses entertained. Get ready for warm Capetonian hospitality, the imposing backdrop of Table Mountain, spectacular ocean views, and the cosmopolitan ambience in this vibrant city. 

Sir Edmund Hilary (Mount Everest fame) couldn’t have put it better: “There is probably no more spectacular place in the world than Cape Town and Table Mountain at the tip of Africa.”

Go up Table Mountain by cable car and enjoy unrivaled, breathtaking views. Drive along popular Camps Bay  and the Sea Point promenade. Witness the firing of the Noon Gun on Signal Hill. Walk through historic Bo-Kaap with its colourful houses. Stop for lunch at a traditional Cape Malay restaurant. Go to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, with its unique and indigenous plant and tree species, all with the imposing mountain looming over you. Learn about our floral kingdom, and what makes it that special. You’ll finish off the tour with a wine tasting, at the place where it all started – Constantia Wine Estate, the first and oldest wine estate in South Africa.
