Cape Town Tours

City, Table Mountain & Kirstenbosch - Private Full-Day Tour

Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Cable car up Table Mountain
Return to Cape Town & Cape Winelands Tours

Depart the city for the Lower Cableway Station to board the revolving cable car, for a 5-minute ride to the top of Table Mountain. One thousand thirty six meters above sea level, it affords bird’s-eye views of both city and peninsula as you walk its summit (weather permitting).

Return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter, for a walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for ships and locals from the mid 17th Century and home to the SA Museum, Cultural History Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St George’s Cathedral. Stroll through the city to Greenmarket Square to browse African mementos at its bustling market stalls.

Drive to the Castle, the oldest building in South Africa, with its collection of Old Cape paintings and take in the Grand Parade where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation upon his release in 1990. Move on to the District Six Museum, highlighting the colorful life of this legendary city area and the bitter, forced removal of its residents during the Apartheid era.

Continue to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, on the suburban slopes of Table Mountain, for lunch in what is arguably the most magnificent of all indigenous plant gardens in the world. Founded in 1895, it is home to many specimens of the unique Cape Floral Kingdom (one of the largest in the world, with some 8,600 species, including the classic Protea). Explore varied biomes and displays, from medicinal plants and desert dwellers, to a forest of prehistoric cycads, until the sun sets.
