What You Can Expect

Table Mountain and Cape Town Half-Day Trip

Picturesque Cape Town sits at the base of Table Mountain

Meet your minibus outside your Cape Town city center hotel and drive straight to the base of Table Mountain. Ride the cable car (own expense) to the top of the mountain, and then enjoy some free time on the mountain top to take in the views of the city below, of Robben Island in the distance and of the mountains that extend inland.

Descend from Table Mountain via the round-trip ticket you purchased for the cable car, and meet your guide to begin your tour of Cape Town’s highlights. Climb into a comfortable air-conditioned minibus and drive past main sights as well as some less-well-known places in the historic city. Visit the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood on Signal Hill (also called the Malay Quarter) and hear stories about the Cape Malay slaves of the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as their descendants who built this district.

If time permits, pay a visit to the Castle of Good Hope - one of the oldest buildings in the whole country of South Africa - to follow your guide into its dungeons. Visit the Milnerton Lighthouse, the light that brings ships safely into Table Bay, and finish your tour with a stop at Diamond Works to tour the factory and hear about South African jewelry. At the end of the tour, you’ll be transported back to your Cape Town hotel.

The views you get from top of the Table Mountain is probably one of the most scenic views I have ever seen in my life. You are literally above the clouds admiring the gorgeous cape town city view and its surroundings. The experience has exceeded my already very high expectations.

Great guide, very informative, and just plain fun. Unfortunately, Table Mountain was covered in fog and the cable car was not operating but we did get to go to another park with a great view over the city. A really good introduction to Cape Town.

Nice tour with very few people. It seemed as if we were travelling in our own car. The lady guide was very friendly and had a lot of patience with us. Cheap Price too. Thanks a lot.

Elaine and Rodney were the perfect guide and driver for our trip. Their ability to make us feel welcome, their expert knowledge and comments and sense of fun was awesome. Elaine was able to keep us altogether and on time to enjoy her beautiful city.
