    A tour designed to make the most of your time in Cape Town, it includes all the 'must sees' when you're in the Mother City – Robben Island, Table Mountain and the city itself. The excursion includes visits to sites of historical, cultural and aesthetic significance to Captonians and South Africans in general.

    Please note that when booking this tour, your full name and passport number must be provided and you must have your passport with you on the day of your tour.



    Located below Table Mountain, Devil's Peak and Lion's Head, Cape Town offers a rich cultural and industrial heritage. Including all the 'must sees' of any Cape Town day trip, this option is a geographical and cultural awe-inspiring spectacle, showing you Cape Town from its historic beginnings to the breathtaking modern shopping centers of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

    The excursion begins with a ferry ride across the bay to Robben Island. (excursion subject to weather conditions). From the XNUMXth century to the XNUMXth century, Robben Island served as a place of banishment, seclusion and imprisonment. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and museum, a poignant reminder of recently democratized South Africa and the price of freedom. The excursion includes a return to the island by ferry, an island bus tour and the prison.

    In the city itself enjoy a drive through the Bo-Kaap district to discover how Malay slaves influenced the culture, cuisine and beauty of this magnificent city and its people. Continue to Table Mountain where you'll reach the summit by cable car (weather permitting; price for cable car not included). Take in panoramic views of the city from Robben Island resting in Table Bay. Also enjoy a bird's eye view of the Atlantic coast.



    Return to the City Bowl area to go Company Gardens. Enjoy a walk in the garden and a visit to the South African Museum. This is followed by a visit to the Fort of Good Hope. Built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) to serve as a resupply station for ships, the Fort of Good Hope is the oldest colonial building in South Africa.


    The journey through the city center will also take you past the Houses of Parliament, Grand Parade and City Hall where Nelson Mandela first addressed South Africans after his release in February 1990.
