Table Mountain & City Tour

This trip is geared towards the historical highlights of the city. It usually requires an early start, particularly in high season, to avoid long queues to the Cableway. Walking up is a steep two hour walk and is an option, but not for everyone. Once at the top, we can take a 1½ hour walk (45 minutes each way) along the ‘flat’ Western and Central Tables, to the highest point 1084 metres) at Maclears Beacon, or we stroll around the immediate vicinity of the Upper Cable Station, enjoying the views of the city to the north and the Table Mountain chain and Cape Peninsula to the south.

On descent we take a short drive to the view point at Signal Hill, with views of the Atlantic coast and the city, before driving down to the City ‘bowl’ for a tour of the important sites of the city. These include the Cape Town Castle, the old City Hall, Adderley Str, St Georges Cathedral, the Slave Tree, Parliament, the Company Gardens and the colourful Bo-Kaap, among other sites. The V&A Waterfront is the place for restaurants, entertainment and retail, including the Watershed Craft Market.
