Full-Day Cape Town Highlights Private Orientation Tour with Local Guide

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Table Mountain National Park 8001 South Africa

    Start your private tour with a pickup from your Cape Town hotel, and then travel into the center of town by air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, chat with your guide about the city and the attractions that you want to see; the itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to the sights you want to see.
    Perhaps start with a cable car ride up Table Mountain, the city’s famous UNESCO World Heritage site. The ride is at your own expense and subject to good weather conditions, but once at the top, the views are magnificent. During July/August the cable car is closed for about two weeks for annual maintenance, but the hiking trails remain open.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Signal Hill, Cape Town Central 8001 South Africa

    Alternatively, skip the ride and travel up Signal Hill by minivan. The hill is a classic Cape Town vantage point and a picturesque spot for ogling the city and beach vistas.
    Return to town for a walking tour around Cape Town itself.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Company's Gardens, 19 Queen Victoria Street, Cape Town Central 8001 South Africa

    Wander past Company’s Gardens, a colonial-era park boasting a pretty Rose Garden and large fish pond. Walk past several sites linked to the city’s tenuous history with slavery such as Slave Lodge and the Old Slave Tree, and gaze at top Cape Town attractions including the Houses of Parliament.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Greenmarket Square, Burg St Corner Longmarket Street, Cape Town Central 8000 South Africa

    Greenmarket Square and St George’s Mall are also worked in to your route.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Noon Day Gun, Military Road Signal Hill, Cape Town Central South Africa

    Return to your minivan for a visit to Noon Gun — Cape Town’s historical time signal — plus the colorful neighborhood of Bo-Kaap.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bo-kaap, Cape Town Central South Africa

    Stop for photos by the candy-coloured houses, and hear how the district has changed from a shanty town to a vibrant city neighbourhood with a melting pot of cultures.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, 19 Dock Road, Cape Town Central 8001 South Africa

    Enjoy a break at the V&A Waterfront for lunch and perhaps a boat ride around the harbour (both at your own expense). After enjoying some free time, meet back up with your guide, and then relax on a scenic drive alongside the Atlantic coastline.
    Watch the waves crashing against the jagged shores, and pass through swanky neighbourhoods such as Clifton or Camps Bay. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at your Cape Town hotel.

    Duration: 2 hours
