Half Day Table Mountain & City Tour
Our half day Table Mountain and Cape Town City sightseeing tour offers visitors the perfect introduction to Cape Town and Table Mountain. Our guide will point out key historical monuments and places of interest in the city and from the top of Table Mountain, and if time permits, take you to the perfect spot for that iconic photograph of Table Mountain. This tour includes free pick up and drop off at central Cape Town hotels.
On the way to the city centre we will see well-known sites like the Castle of Good Hope, built in 1666 by the Dutch East India Company, and Cape Town City Hall, a baroque building, and the Grand Parade. As we follow the city’s main road, Adderley Street, we will see St. George’s Cathedral, the Anglican Diocese of Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
We will pass the Company Gardens and the Malay Quarter [also known as the Bo-Kaap] which means “Above Cape” due to it being up against the slopes of Table Mountain. In the early 18th century, a multitude of slaves from Java, Ceylon and other Far Eastern regions were brought to Cape Town. After slavery was eliminated, their descendants, known as the Cape Malay’s, settled here.
Our route then leads us to Kloof Nek and the breathtaking Table Mountain. We’ll climb to the top (excludes cableway ticket fee & weather permitting) by the rotating cable car. Here, we’ll see wild flowers and the famous silver tree, and marvel at a birds-eye view of the city and its beaches. On a clear day it is even possible to see Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was confined, on one side and Cape Point on the other.
Then descend and pass through Malay Quarter, city centre and Company Gardens. Visit the Castle of Good Hope (time permitting) and Diamond Works. Travel to Milnerton area and photograph Table Mountain from across Table Bay (time permitting and not available for 2019 season). From here we can see Table Mountain from the same angle as the early settlers did when they sailed into Table Bay.Send an Enquiry Book Now
