Depart the city for Tafelberg Road and the Lower Cable Station. For those wishing to summit Table Mountain (optional extra) we board the revolving cable car for a 5-minute ride to the top of this legendary promontory (weather permitting). 1 067 metres above sea level, it affords bird's-eye views of the city, Table Bay and the Peninsula, as you explore its summit.
After the descent, enjoy a scenic coastal drive through Clifton and Sea Point to the city centre to Green Market Square. We stretch our legs with a walk through the Company Gardens. The tour continues with a drive past the Houses of Parliament, the City Hall, The Castle and Slave Lodge, before entering the "Bo Kaap", also known as the Malay quarter. The architecture in this area is typical of what Cape Town was like 200 years ago.
For the morning tour, we ascend Signal Hill to witness firing of the noon gun (except Sundays and Public Holidays). You will be dazzled by the diamond tour where we learn about the history of these sparkling gems before returning you back to your Hotel.
NB. If the cableway is closed due to inclement weather, the tour will drive up nearby Signal Hill.
Lunch is not included.
