2-Hour Cape Town Briefing: Coffee and Stroll with a Local Expert - Escorted Day Tour

How do I get to Table Mountain? Where can I find the best wine? What museums should I go to? Welcome to Cape Town. As easy as international travel has become, it can still be unnerving to arrive in an unfamiliar city with unanswered questions. Our personalized Introduction to Cape Town Tour, in the company of a local insider, is essential for first-time visitors seeking advice on Cape Town sightseeing and how to plan their time. Designed to answer practical questions about living and staying in Cape Town, this 2-hour experience will help navigate the streets, talk about safety, secure a few good dining spots to help you along the way, and better discover Cape Town. We’ll begin our experience in your hotel lobby or apartment where our docent, a resident of and expert of Cape Town, will explain the layout of the city and the area where you are staying. Looking at a map, we'll orientate you to your nearest places of interest. We’ll then offer tips on local customs, suggestions for dining, shopping, insider events, and festivals, before opening the floor to any specific questions you might have. If you have additional walks booked with us, like our Cape Town City Tour (another excellent choice for a first-timer), we will examine your itinerary together and go over any last-minute questions. We will then head outside for a stroll, allowing for a discussion of your area’s history and an opportunity to absorb the neighborhood ambiance under the guidance of a seasoned local. We’ll stop occasionally to talk about historic buildings and monuments, or maybe to go over how to purchase transit tickets. We’ll point out the best markets, cafes, and restaurants. We’ll leave you with maps, a head full of knowledge, and a better sense of how best to navigate this charming city. Please note, while our docent will provide a crash course on the basics, bringing your own questions and interests to the table can help us personalize the experience and help you get the most out of your visit.

Cape Town

Cape Town is southern Africa's most beautiful, most romantic and most-visited city. Few urban centers anywhere can match its setting along the Cape Peninsula spine, which slides like the mighty tail of the continent into the Atlantic Ocean. By far the most striking - and famous - of its sights is Table Mountain, frequently mantled by clouds, and rearing up from the middle of the city to provide a constantly changing vista to the suburbs below. Table Mountain is the city's solid core which divides the city into distinct zones with public gardens, wilderness, forests, hiking routes, vineyards and desirable residential areas trailing down it's lower slopes.
