Half Day City Tour
Situated below the beautiful expanse of Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head, Cape Town offers a rich cultural and industrial heritage, a bustling city atmosphere and the grand splendour and excitement of the V&A Waterfront and harbour.
Including all the `must-sees` of any Cape Town day tour, this option is a geographical and cultural extravaganza, showing you Cape Town, from its historical beginnings to the dazzling modern shopping malls of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
The tour commences with a tour of Table Mountain where we enjoy our journey up and down the mountain in the rotating cable car and gasp at the beauty of the panoramic views Cape Town's most recognised landmark affords us. In the city itself, we visit the Company Gardens often referred to as "an oasis of calm in the city rush" the Gardens are home to squirrels and a variety of birds as well as a rose garden and pools filled with fish.
We wander around the informative S.A. Museum before venturing on to the Castle of Good Hope, the oldest surviving building in South Africa. The Castle is home to an impressive display of South Africa's military history and current military personnel. After a tour around the Castle we continue on to the arty and vibey market at Green Market Square, before heading towards the brightly coloured and picturesque Bo-Kaap. Home to what is known as the "Cape Malay Quarter", Bo-Kaap is a living cultural museum displaying the customs, lifestyle and personality of the Cape Muslim community.
The final stop of our tour is at the Shimansky Diamond Museum where we gain an insightful look at the intricate process of achieving the ultimate stone and watch as sparkling masterpieces take shape.
