Your adventure begins with a cable car ride to the summit of Table Mountain, which sits 1,089 meters above the city. After this inspiring start to the day, you’ll explore Cape Town’s historic sites and neighborhoods. Start at The Castle of Good Hope – a 17th Century structure that’s bounded by arts and crafts sellers – as well as the nearby Company’s Garden, a shady park that hums with activity. Next, you’ll tour the Bo-Kaap neighborhood, with its colonial-era cottages known for their ice-cream and pastel hues, and visit a professional diamond cutter working the precious stone.

You’ll reach Cape Point – the rugged, natural end of the continent – via Chapman’s Peak Drive, a cliff-hugging pass that offers breath-taking views of the Atlantic waves crashing below. Bask in the point’s tranquil scenery, listen to the ebb and flow of the sea, and say hello to the area’s resident baboons. On your return trip, make a short trip to visit the friendly African penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach. Finally, the day’s tour concludes with a sampling of the region’s best reds and whites in the Stellenbosch region – a relaxing end to your day of adventure.
