My husband and I try to do a 'food tour' in any city where we are spending a few days so that we can get some city orientation, learn from a local and have great places to eat during our stay. Cape Town Essentials Food Tour was our best ever food tour without a doubt. We were treated to great coffee with the bonus that we watched the coffee being made in a way that we have never seen before. You have to see it to believe it. We had the best Bobotie and beer tasting at Cafe Extrablatt. Our wonderful and decadent walking food tour wrapped up at Mondiall Kitchen and Bar with the best dessert tasting plate I have ever seen and tasted. It doesn't matter who you are, you have to eat and drink and this tour takes care of this and so much more.
Our tour with Ellie was even more than we had hoped for. We visited a number of very good establishments - restaurants, coffee shop, butchery and craft beer bar. Each one had obviously been carefully chosen to show the best of Cape Town in terms of food and drink. In addition, Ellie gave us loads of background information on Cape Town's history and showed us around her home town with enthusiasm and obvious pride. I would not only recommend this tour to everyone, I would book again if and when we return to Cape Town.
Had a great time. Signed up within 1 hr of the start of this tour. The locations, the guide, and the foods that were organized for us were divine. One of my most unforgettable tours ever. It was the perfect way to understand South Africa from a food perspective!!
