city tours including table mountain

These half day city tours are meant to provide you with a general orientation of Cape Town and its layout. From Table Mountain we have beautiful, aerial views highlighting the natural beauty of the Mother City. We start the day with a pickup at 8:30 from your accommodation and head straight to Table Mountain for the cable car trip to the top.

Coming back down the mountain we stop in Bo-Kaap. This area is regularly featured in postcards and magazines due to its bright, colourful houses. These houses were occupied by slaves in the mid 1800's and until today, later generations of these slaves still live in the same houses.

The final stop for the day is The Castle of Good Hope. This structure was erected by the Dutch in the late 1600's shortly after their arrival to turn Cape Town into a settlement.Here you can view their way of life back then, who they were, what they wore, their weapons, conflicts and more.

The day ends around lunch time where we will drop you at your accommodation or selected point. The rest of the day can be dedicated for a visit to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.

Below you can find more information on some of the Cape Town highlights and attractions.

Table Mountain Cableway Tours
Take a ride in a cable car to the top of Table Mountain for unspoilt scenes and views of Cape Town. Table Mountain is voted one of the new natural wonders of the world. The Cable car does not operate in bad weather or high winds. If the weather cancels your trip on the day, the ticket can be used for next days or you can request a refund online.
 
   
Robben Island Museum
The famous island prison where the legendary Nelson Mandela was locked up by the old Apartheid Government of South Africa. Today it is a museum and a ferry ride takes you back in time to get a feel of the fight for freedom. Stand in the prison cell where Mandela spend years of his life, walk the grounds he did and meet people who were locked up with him. This tour can last anything from 3 - 5 hours and is weather dependent.
 
   
Castle of Good Hope
Here you can visit the first permanent piece of construction built in Cape Town by the Dutch after their settlement in the mid 1600's. Have a look at who they were, why the came here, what the looked like, their uniforms, weapons and guns used, statues, the torture chamber, slave trade, battles with the local bushmen and more. The amount of time spent at The Castle of Good Hope is completely up to you and dependent on your interests in the history, stories, paintings, rooms, chambers and curio shops available on the premises.
 
   
The Heart Transplant Museum
Groote Schuur Hospital was the focus of the world during the late 60's when the very first heart transplant took place here. Today you can stand in the hallways, theatres and footsteps of the great team of doctors who performed this historic event, including the famous Dr Christiaan Barnard. If history tickles your fancy we seriously suggest you consider this guided tour through the hospital.
 
   
District 6 Museum, Cape Town
The old, Apartheid South African government brought with it many sad, unbelievable stories which changed people lives forever, and for the worse. District 6 was an area in Cape Town against the slopes of Table Mountain that unfortunately felt the full force of this government when their houses were bulldozed and families were scattered to make way for a 'white' area. Until today the ripples of this unthinkable event echoes through South Africa and this museum will take you back to those moments in time. No bookings are needed for the museum.
 
   
The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront
The V&A Waterfront is arguably the most visited tourist attraction in Cape Town. From luxury accommodation, to apartments, restaurants, shopping, helicopter rides, sundowner yacht cruises and more can be found within this complex. If time is an issue for you and you cannot make it there in your own free time, then we will happily take you there for lunch to have a look around. Lunch options are plenty and you can be sure to find any type of cuisine there including local, seafood, Italian, French and more...
 
   
Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden
Enjoy a leisurely walk through the beautiful botanical garden of Cape Town on the slopes of Table Mountain. Kirstenbosch can be appreciated within an hour's time, where plant- and flower lovers will probably need some extra time. The new 'Boomslang' walkway takes you on an elevated walk through the trees with a bird's eye view of the garden.
 
   
Greenmarket Square African Markets
The famous market square with it's original cobble streets have been a place of buying, selling and trading for hundreds of years. Until today the square is buzzing with African Markets. Feel free to let us know if you wish to stop here for some shopping or just a look around. The market is situated just off Long Street, making it a perfect stop for lunch followed by some time spent walking through the markets. If you need some ideas for souvenir shopping or you simply want to fill up that extra space in your luggage, then this is the place!
