Table Mountain forms a natural amphitheatre around the city which is what make it unique and dramatic! You will discover why Cape Town is continually voted one of the top destinations in the world! Our first stop is to the Table Mountain cable station where we can ride the cable car to the summit (own account R195 and weather permitting). The views are spectacular, and our guide will point out all the most important places. Our tour continues over the mountain to the snowy white beaches of Clifton and Sea Point. The sharp cliffs plunge vertically into the ocean and magnificent mansions cling to the rock and seem to hang precariously over the edge.
We drive past Greenmarket Square with its vibrant flea market and souvenir stands, and we take a refreshing stroll through the Company Gardens in the shade of 160 year old trees.
The gardens are surrounded by old slave quarters, the Houses of Parliament and St Georges Cathedral, with its interesting history. We drive past the Castle and Slave Lodge, and the beautiful City Hall, and then we’re off to Bo Kaap, Cape Town’s Malay quarter with its quaint and picturesque houses and mosques.
Our tour culminates on a high with the firing of the noon gun up on Signal Hill (excludes Sundays and Public Holidays) and we can see the Cape Town Stadium from here, where some of the games were played during the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2010.
You’ll be dazzled by the sparkle of diamonds before we return you to your hotel.
