6-hour Cape Town city and Table Mountain Tour

Join us on this incredible day tour of Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world! If you have never been to Cape Town before then this tour is a perfect introduction into what South Africa’s Mother City has to offer.

There is no other city in South Africa that can match its sheer awesomeness and beauty as its mountainous spine known as the Cape Peninsula bonds with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

The most famous landmark by far is Table Mountain as she rises over 1000m into the Cape Town sky. The Mountain is often shrouded in a mystical layer of cloud known by the locals as ‘the tablecloth’.

The Mountain looms up like a sentinel protecting the city that divides Cape Town into distinct zones that include forests, vineyards, public parks and desirable real estate opportunities. From the summit of Table Mountain, there are some inspiring views.

To the North you get a view of the city, Victoria and Alfred Harbor area, and the many ships waiting to dock. To the west, under the towering mountainous formations of the Twelve Apostles lies the Atlantic sea board and the area known as Camps Bay and through to Clifton- Cape Town’s most affluent area by far. Nestled below Table Mountain lies the city center.

It is here that we get a feel for the real soul of Cape Town, a city bursting with rich cultural heritage that is alive with excitement and adventure.
