A 4-day comprehensive tour of Cape Town, featuring most of its tourist attractions. Get to know local culture and history and enjoy the spectacular round-trip with a cable car to the Table Mountain. On this tour you’ll pass top Cape Town attractions in the city center, as well as lesser-known sites in the city’s Malay Quarter (Bo-Kaap) on Signal Hill.

Itinerary:
Day 1: Travel to Cape Town.
Arrival and transfer to the Hotel - On arrival your assigned guide will meet and transfer you to the Hotel. You will have the rest of the day at leisure and acclimatizing. Own dinner arrangements – with the guide`s assistance if so required. Overnight at the Hotel B/B

Day 2: Cape Town Full Day Activities.
After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel, head straight to the Rot Air Cable car at the foot of Table Mountain – Cape Town’s most prominent landmark. After purchasing the cable car round-trip tickets, head straight up to the summit of Table Mountain, enjoying phenomenal views as you ride. Views from the top of Table Mountain are equally spectacular and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy them independently. Take a walk around and see the city laid out below you. Look over to the Atlantic coastline and, if the weather is clear enough, catch a glimpse of tiny Robben Island in the distance.

After descending the mountain by cable car, meet your guide for a comprehensive tour of Cape Town. Traveling by air-conditioned minibus, you’ll pass top Cape Town attractions in the city center, as well as lesser-known sites in the city’s Malay Quarter (Bo-Kaap) on Signal Hill. Admire the neighbourhood’s brightly coloured houses and learn about its fascinating history, including tales of Cape Malay slaves during the 16th and 17th centuries and the apartheid era history. Time permitting, visit the Castle of Good Hope – one of South Africa’s oldest buildings—and see its incredible dungeons with your guide. Travel to Milnerton Lighthouse to see the beacon that guides ships into Table Bay, and then end your tour with a visit to Cape Town’s famous Diamond Works. Learn all about South African jewelry – the country’s most famous export – on a tour of the factory before returning to your hotel.

In the afternoon, enjoy free time for lunch at one of the many restaurants along the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (own expense). Then, ferry north from Cape Town across Table Bay to the rocky outcrop of Robben Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site, where Nelson Mandela spent the first 18 years of his 27-year prison sentence in a maximum-security facility for political prisoners. On arrival, view his cell, which is approximately seven square feet (0.6 sq m) wide and located around a concrete courtyard. Listen to your guide share details of how Mandela’s leadership surfaced during a rebellion over forced digging in a quarry under harsh conditions. Pay a silent moment of respect as you imagine Nelson Mandela emerging from the prison gates, one step closer to beginning his long walk to freedom. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your Cape Town hotel at about 6 pm. Overnight at the Hotel B/B
