This tour explores the vibrant Cape Town City Bowl and showcases its heritage landmarks. The bustling central business district of Cape Town lies in the shadow of Table Mountain.
Between the old suburbs of Oranjezicht and Tamboerskloof and the famous Cape Town Harbour.
Modern residential developments, state-of-the-art office blocks and world-class entertainment centres have made Cape Town one of the most dynamic and cosmopolitan cities in the world. The city is rich in history and home to a multi-cultural population. This tour will give you just a glimpse of what the city of Cape Town has to offer.
Castle of Good Hope, Cape Town City Hall and Parliament Buildings
We start in the heart of the Cape Town City Bowl and take you past the main heritage landmarks. Cape Town is the oldest city in southern Africa and is rich in history. The city was built by the Dutch East India Company and you’ll see many of the historic sites that served as military, administrative and civilian facilities.
Iziko South African Museum & Company Gardens
To learn more about the fascinating history of South Africa, we visit the Iziko South African Museum. The original South African Museum was founded in 1825 and is situated in the historic Company’s Gardens.
The state-of-the-art Iziko South African Museum houses a vast collection of historical artefacts as well as more than 1.5 million specimens of scientific importance. There is also a fascinating Planetarium on the property.
You’ll have a opportunity to stroll through the museum at your leisure and visit the gorgeous Company Gardens. The original gardens were created in the 1650s and provided the first settlers with fresh produce to replenish their food stores on the ships.
Next stop is the vibrant village of Bo-Kaap which lies at the foot of Signal Hill. Formerly known as the Malay Quarter, it was home to the Indonesian and Asian slaves that were bought to Cape Town by the Dutch to build the city. Many of the predominantly Muslim inhabitants living in Bo-Kaap today are descendants of the original slaves. Bo-Kaap is one of the most photographed villages in the country with its brightly-painted homes and steep cobbled streets.
Signal Hill, Lions Hill, Clifton and Camps Bay
The morning or afternoon ends with a leisurely drive past Signal Hill and down Kloof Road to the beautiful seaside towns of Clifton and Camp’s Bay. It’s an exceptionally pretty drive and offers incredible views of Table Mountain, Lions Head, Signal Hill and the glistening Atlantic Ocean. The beaches of Clifton and Camp’s Bay are Blue Flag beaches.
For those who have pre-booked Option 1, we take you to Table Mountain Aerial Cableway for a trip up to the top of the famous mountain.
Otherwise, we drive back to Cape Town City Bowl along the Atlantic Seaboard passing through Sea Point and Green Point. We drop you back at your hotel or guest house mid-day (13h00 for morning tour) or early evening (18h00 for afternoon tour).
