Cape Town is consistently voted one of the best cities in the world to visit by numerous international travellers.
On this tour, we’ll show you some of the attractions that give Cape Town its world class reputation.
Table Mountain forms the majestic and splendid backdrop to Cape Town - the place we call our Mother City.
A panoramic cable car ride to the summit is a must when here. If the weather isn’t good, the alternative is a scenic drive to Signal Hill, which also has all-around views of the city.
