The full-day tour departs from your centrally located downtown Cape Town, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, or Atlantic Seaboard (Mouille Point, Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Clifton and Camps Bay) hotel accommodation around 9am.

You’ll first be driven in an air-conditioned minivan to the Company Gardens downtown. There, you’ll embark on a walk toward the city center, strolling past the National Library, Cape Town Parliament, and St. George’s Cathedral. You’ll continue through the heart of the old city where you will find some of Cape Town’s oldest and most prestigious galleries, antique shops, and auction houses, and visit The Cape Gallery flanked by colorful Georgian and Dutch facades. You’ll then return to the Company Gardens for a visit to the South African National Gallery. It houses outstanding collections of South African, British, French, Dutch, and Flemish art with regular exhibitions of paintings, works on paper, photography, sculpture, beadwork, textiles, and architecture.

Back in the minivan, you’ll travel to the village of Muizenberg, home to Casa Labia. Built in 1929 to reflect the spirit of 18th century Venice, Casa Labia is the former Muizenberg residence of Count and Countess Natale Labia. Today it is a contemporary South African art gallery, an uber-stylish Africa nova boutique, as well as a celebrated Italian café where you can enjoy a light and delicious lunch (at your own expense).

You’ll then continue on to the quaint seaside village of Kalk Bay where the pace of life is a little slower, and explore its quirky shops, antiques, crafts, and art. Traditional fishing vessels still return with the ‘catch of the day’ to the little port, while surfers enjoy surfing one of the best reefs in Cape Town. Established in 1995, The Kalk Bay Gallery, housed in the distinct Orange Building overlooking False Bay, is reputed to have one of the most comprehensive selections of original contemporary South African art. You’ll have time to explore its unique selection of over 3000 art works from international and South African artists for sale.

Finally, you’ll return to your Cape Town accommodation in the late afternoon. This tour is not wheelchair accessible, and a moderate amount of walking is required. Note that two people per booking is required.

Cape Town is the ultimate tourist destination due to the variety of attractions that the city has to offer, it is guaranteed that no matter what day of the week- this place has something going on that would appeal to you.

You can take a drive to the wine lands and experience the heritage of Cape Town by visiting the small town of Franschoek which is one of South Africa’s oldest towns. And for those food and wine lovers Franschoek is also known for having some of the best restaurants within its borders, it has even been labelled ‘The Wine and Food Capital’ of South Africa.

If this small town is a bit too laid back for you-you should make your way to Long street and experience something different, this bohemian hang out is lined with some of Cape Towns most loved bars and ethnic restaurants, it becomes filled with many different and interesting characters that are looking to paint the town red.
Lastly, what would a visit to this city be without being able to sink your feet in many sandy beaches in this Mother City like Beta Beach which is situated ten minutes? drive from the city centre and Oudekraal which lies right next door, or even Sandy Bay for those care-free spirits-this nudist beach is situated along the road between Cape Town to Cape Point and is not easily accessible.
Camps Bay where the rich and famous come out to play is a perfect place to soak up the great weather, and indulge in the many restaurants that are lined up on Camps Bay drive with a magnificent backdrop of Table Mountain-basically everywhere you look.
