Day 2

Cape Town

B – L

 

Please meet your guide in the reception area of your hotel from where you depart on a full day tour of Cape Town City.

 

We first make our way to the Robben Island ferry departure point at the Waterfront. Robben Island is located 12 kilometres offshore from Cape Town, surrounded by freezing cold seas and strong currents. In this way, geographically, it is Cape Town’s version of Alcatraz, perfectly designed and naturally defended to create the ultimate prison.  It was here that Nelson Mandela, was incarcerated for 18 of the 27 years that he spent as a political prisoner of the Apartheid regime. On this tour you will see the prison itself and Mandela’s cell. In the 2 ½ hours that you spend on the island, your guide will bring those years to life and explain to you how the legacy of Robben Island has been one of the most important building blocks of the new ‘Rainbow Nation’.

 

Your guide will discuss the best restaurant options with you based on your preference and logistics. An A la Carte lunch including soft drinks, non-premium brand drinks and house wines are included in your tour.

 

After lunch, we make our way to the to the lower cable car station on the slopes of Table Mountain, where (weather permitting) we make the short and comfortable ascent to the top of the mountain by cable car. The panoramic view of the sea and city from the summit is magnificent.

 

Then we begin our tour of historic Cape Town. Whether you are interested in visiting the traditional tourist attractions, indulging in a personal passion, or simply exploring the ‘Mother City’ as a local, Cape Town has more than enough diversity to cater to your personal preference.

 

After the tour you will be returned to your hotel for your evening at leisure.

Day 3

Cape Town

B – L

 

Please meet your guide in the reception area of your hotel and depart on a full day tour to Cape Point.

 

The focus of your tour is visiting the infamous ‘Cape Point’, situated within the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Whilst journeying along the Atlantic coast, through the Hout Bay valley and over the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive (subject to road conditions) and occasionally stopping at various sites of interest along the way. Your guide will discuss your individual interests and preferences and tailor make the day’s routing and sightings accordingly. This affords you the advantage of total flexibility while still maintaining the expertise of a qualified guide.

 

Named the ‘Cape of Storms’ by Bartolomeu Dias in 1488; the ‘Point’ was treated with respect by sailors for centuries. By day, it was a navigational landmark and by night, and in fog, it was a menace beset by violent storms and dangerous rocks that over the centuries littered shipwrecks around the coastline.

 

In 1859 the first lighthouse was completed; it still stands at 238 metres above sea-level on the highest section of the peak and is now used as the centralised monitoring point for all the lighthouses on the coast of South Africa. Access to this historical building is by an exhilarating three-minute ride in the Flying Dutchman funicular (named after the local legend of the Flying Dutchman ghost ship) that transfers visitors from the lower station at 127 metres above sea-level, to the upper station.

 

Your full day tour includes 3 entrance fees as well as the Cape Point Funicular ticket, an A la Carte lunch, including soft drinks, non-premium brand drinks and house wines.

 

Your guide will discuss the best restaurant options with you based on your preference and logistics.

 

After your day’s touring, you will be dropped off at your hotel for your evening at leisure.
