What to Expect

Don’t miss out on one of the most popular tours in South Africa, the Cape Town city tour.
Cape Town is most beautiful, vibrant and most visited city in Southern Africa.
You will see that very few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the mountainous Cape Peninsula, which slides into the Atlantic Ocean.

The most striking and famous of its sights is Table Mountain. It is frequently covered by clouds, and situated right in the middle of the beautiful city. Standing on the tabletop, you will have best views of the city centre on one side, and mountainous Twelve Apostles and beautiful Clifton beaches.
After the walk on the top of the mountain, we descend to Cape Town city with its rich cultural and industrial heritage, with a hive of activity and excitement.

We will stop at The V&A Waterfront which is South Africa’s most visited destination, attracting millions of visitors every year with it’s wide range of restaurants, shops, activities and free entertainment. Drive past the luxury residential suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay, stretched along the Atlantic seaboard. Here you will find some of the most stunning beaches in the world.

Later we will visit the Bo-Kaap area formerly known as the Malay Quarter, famous for its brightly coloured homes and romantic cobble stoned streets. We will stop at the museum, which dates back to the 1760s, and is inside the oldest house in the area still in its original form. It highlights the cultural contribution made by early Muslim settlers, many of whom were skilled tailors, carpenters, shoemakers and builders.

We visit Castle of Good Hope which is the oldest surviving building in South Africa. Built between 1666 and 1679, this pentagonal fortification replaced a small clay and timber fort built by Commander Jan van Riebeeck in 1652 upon establishing a maritime replenishment station at the Cape of Good Hope (Cape Town) for the Dutch East India Company, better known as the VOC (Verenigde Oos-Indische Compagnie). The Castle of Good Hope houses the regional headquarters of the South African Army in the Western Cape, the famous William Fehr Collection of historic artworks, the Castle Military Museum and ceremonial facilities for traditional Cape Regiments.

Our tour ends with a short visit to the Cape Diamond Museum (optional), explore the history of the South African diamond rush and where it all began. Discover the world’s most famous diamonds with life-size replicas on display. Witness how rough diamonds are transformed into creations of fire and light.
