Tour Description

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 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 Malays, settled here.

Our route then leads us to Kloof Nek and the breathtaking Table Mountain. We’ll climb to the top (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. Descend from the Upper Cableway station to your awaiting vehicle and then continue around Table Bay to the Milnerton area (time permitting). From here we can see Table Mountain from the same angle as the early settlers did when they sailed into Table Bay.
