Western Cape Day Tours
We organise guided day tours covering the major attractions in the immediate vicinity of Cape Town, either as an add-on to your hike or as a stand-alone tour. Attractions include Table Mountain, the Cape Peninsula, the Cape Wine regions of Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, Hermanus and the Whale Route and Robben Island among others. All of our tours have flexible options and can be adapted according to your needs, preferences and interests, the weather conditions and seasons, as well as the events that are on in the city at the time. Cape Town is known as the City of Great Events and often a day or two is not enough to explore all the options. Consult with us before arrival and we can adapt accordingly.
When planning visits to Table Mountain, it must be taken in to account that windy or wet weather conditions can result in the cableway being closed.
