Cape Town is fast becoming one of the most frequented and diverse cultural and natural travel hubs in the world. The Mother City of South Africa has an unimaginable amount to offer the intrepid traveller in the way of wine, history, culture and mind-blowing scenery.
With so many world-class things to see and do in Cape Town, planning a day tour may seem a tad overwhelming. The city is spoilt rotten with the many attractions to visit. There are so many choices from Table Mountain, the Cape Winelands, Robben Island, Cape Point, the Peninsula and of course the famous penguins of Boulders Beach. Hopefully we can give you a clearer insight into the best day tours from not only our perspective, but our clients as well. So let’s get straight into it…here is our selection of the 5 best day tours in Cape Town.
A mere 40 minutes’ drive out of Cape Town and we find ourselves in one of the most famous winelands in the world. Our day tour includes the areas of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. Each of these incredibly beautiful towns are home to an abundance of vineyards dating back to the 17th Century. The buildings and architecture are reminiscent of the old Dutch and French settlers. Our winelands tour starts at 8am and we have you back at your hotel again by about 17H00. A jam-packed day of wine tasting, good food and mind blowing scenery. The tour includes a visit to 3 prominent wine farms of the various Cape wineland areas. And of course there is a free hotel pick up, guide and transfers included in the package.
A full day tour that will give you and insight into the heart and soul of Cape Town-a perfect introduction into what Cape Town has to offer. The tour starts off with a cable car ride up to the summit of the infamous Table Mountain. If you thought the views of the mountain from the bottom where cool, you should see how incredible they are form the top. You will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the harbor area, Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner for 27 years), the Twelve Apostles, Camps Bay. And of course, nestled at the base of the mountain is the city of Cape Town. After taking the cable car back down we then take a tour of the city as well as a stroll through the Company Gardens which includes the old Slave Lodge. A lot of history on this section of the trip. The tour will be led by one of our guides who will explain everything to you-from past to present.
This day tour just oozes culture, history and heritage. The name says it all!! The tour includes an interactive experience that involves a little bit of walking through some of the most iconic areas that paved the way for freedom from the Apartheid regime. We will take you back in time to the arrival of the Dutch settlers through the slavery era and into the current conditions, culture and heritage that was formed as a result. The areas we cover on this tour include the Bo-Kaap, the ‘living’ museum of Zonnebloem ( formerly known as District 6). Cape Flats, the Alfred and Victoria harbor area as well as boat ride to Robben Island. Yip, an activity filled day for sure. But well worth it as you will get a fantastic overview of Cape Town.
The highlight if this day tour is to stand on the southernmost point of Africa. What an incredible view as you stand on the massive cliffs watching the waves crash on the rocks below. This area is known as the Cape of Storms and its rugged beauty is one that will stay with you forever. The second part of the tour is equally impressive as we make our way through the Cape Peninsula. We will visit some of the most iconic areas from Boulders Beach ( yes, you guessed it….home to the penguins that Cape Town is famous for), Hout Bay ( where you have the opportunity to take a boat ride to Seal Island), Simons Town ( South Africas Naval Head Quarters) and of course…….the most incredibly beautiful Chapmans Peak. One of the most popular day tours in Cape Town.
Every year from August to November, Hermanus becomes the home to over 300 humpback whales. They migrate from Antarctica to mate and give birth. The whales can literally be seen right in front of you from the many cliffs of Hermanus. We have created a 3 day tour of this incredible area. One day is not enough in our eyes. This tour includes boat rides where you get to see the whales really close, walks along the beach and cliff tops with our whale expert as well as some snorkeling and sea kayaking. So, a bit of adventure, exercise, nature and good cuisine all rolled into one. The highlight of the day is sitting on the cliffs sipping a glass of wine and watching the whales literally 100m away.
There we have it folks. Some of the best day tours in Cape Town. But of course, there is a way lot more to do. Contact us for more details or if you would like us to custom make a tour for you.
