Weather and traffic can affect our tour times. From mid-December to mid-January, heavy traffic can be expected in and around major tourist sites and beaches. During this period, Half-Day tour may not be available, but Full Day City Tour is available year-round.

What to Expect

We start our city tour departing from your hotel heading for Table Mountain or Signal Hill. Enjoy the beautiful views of the City as you reach the summit (weather permitting, cable car fee for own account). Our guide will show you the best viewing points for the most amazing photographs.

After the decent we will enjoy a scenic coastal drive through Clifton and Sea Point to the city centre. Here we will take stroll through Green Market Square, where you can purchase souvenirs from local craftsmen. Then we will take walk through the Company Gardens.

The tour will continue with a drive past the Houses of Parliament, the City Hall, The Cape Castle and Slave Lodge, before entering the “Bo Kaap”, also known as the Malay quarter with its colorful buildings. The architecture in this area is typical of what Cape Town was like 200 years ago.

In the end of our tour, we ascend Signal Hill to witness firing of the noon gun (only during morning tour, not available on Sundays and Public Holidays).

If you are interested, we can take you on a short diamond tour. 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.

Please Note: We advise our clients to pre-purchase cableway tickets online here, which could save valuable time on this half day tour.
