The tour commences with collection from your hotel and transfer to the lower cable car station at Table Mountain.  Meet your accredited walking / hiking guide.  Hike up the easiest and most direct route to the top of Table Mountain which follows a well-constructed trail up a deep ravine on the iconic front face of the mountain.

The route tops out near the upper cable station. We then traverse the length of the famous table top summit to the highest point on the mountain –  Maclears Beacon at 1087m – for more great views.  Once you descend the mountain by cable car (weather permitting), transfer to the colourful Bo-Kaap where you will enjoy a traditional lunch (to own account) while learning about the contribution of the Cape Malay people to South Africa’s, and Cape Town’s heritage.

Drive through the cobbled streets of the Malay Quarter after lunch and proceed with the remainder of your tour of the Mother City.  Enjoy a stroll through the Company Gardens Company to the South African Museum. From here you will continue to the Castle of Good Hope which is the oldest surviving building in South Africa. You will also drive through the city, past the Houses of Parliament, the City Hall and Grand Parade.

Return to your hotel in the late afternoon, approximately 16:00.
