Cape Town City Tour

Explore South Africa's oldest city, affectionately known as the Mother City. On this half day tour, you will encounter unique cultures, architecture, historical sites and unforgettable scenery. Start the morning with the iconic Table Mountain with spectacular views in all directions and a bird's eye view of the city. Ascending to the top by cable car, the floor rotates 360-degrees, enabling visitors to take in all of the breathtaking views (weather permitting). Explore the Bo Kaap or Cape Malay Quarter which has a rich cultural, religious and architectural heritage, and is a mixed and cosmopolitan neighborhood with strong links to Muslim traditions and culture. Stroll through Company Gardens in the city center, the oldest in the country and was established by Dutch settlers in 1652 to provide provisions for spice-trading sailing ships. Learn about the Castle of Good Hope, one of the oldest buildings in South Africa. Built by the Dutch East India Company as a maritime replenishment station. End the morning wandering through Green Market Square, one of Cape Town's oldest markets. Set on a cobbled square, it offers an exciting buzz with some colorful and eccentric characters. You can pick up local art, crafts, fabrics and artifacts from almost every country on the African continent.
