Cape Town, franschhoek & surrounds

Signature tours

THE FYNBOS

Full day tour

This tour is a wonderful insight into the unique and delightful botanicals that the Western Cape has to offer. Unrepeatable in any other destination in the world; the indigenous Gingo Trees at the Company Gardens, the horticultural foresight of Babylonstoren and the once off combination of art and nature at the Dylan Lewis Garden are just some of the highlights.

THE MOTHER CITY

Half day tour

There is no better way to see and understand the vibe of the Mother City than with the escort of a local tour guide. This tour is a great way of orientating yourself around the city and learning the history of all the very many cultures that live together.

The highlights include the Castle, the Bo-Kaap and District Six.

THE GRAPE

Full day tour

There is nothing quite like a day in the winelands. The surrounds of Cape Town are spoilt for choice when it comes to seeing our grapes in action!

The winelands offer so much more than just excellent wines so we deliberately leave this tour open for you to discuss with your guide in advance of your trip.

The choices include beautiful historical estates; winemaking from the very traditional to the very modern; wine tasting; grappa, gin or brandy tasting; the duck parade; town tours of Stellenbosch and / or Franschhoek; museums; wine pairing with cheese, chocolate or olives. It is possible to spend a lifetime in the winelands and still experience new things every day, so we strongly advise letting us help you plan an unforgettable day.

Includes: Tour of the winelands, the local towns and guide around the area.

THE PENINSULA

Full day tour

Wild and wonderful and should never be missed. Cape Point is often incorrectly described as the Southernmost point of Africa but correctly described as the most dramatic south westerly point from which to get a sense of being at the end of the earth; only 1000 km from Antarctica.

This tour includes a relaxing drive along the Atlantic coastline and back through the picturesque villages of Kalk Bay and Simons Town, and of course a stop to see the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach.

THE BIG SPLASH

Full day tour

Hermanus is about a two-hour drive from Cape Town and is known as the Whale Capital of the World. The whale season is typically between May and November but even outside this time there is plenty to do in Hermanus including shark cage diving, water safaris, and simply enjoying this unique little charming town.

This tour includes a relaxing drive along Sir Lowry’s Pass and Walkers Bay and through some of the most interesting agricultural land in the Western Cape.

THE SAFARI

Full day tour

Cape Town is not generally known for its Safaris, with the very impressive wildlife parks being in the south and the north east of South Africa. However, within a few hours of Cape Town there are some very impressive private wildlife reserves which are an excellent introduction to South Africa’s ‘Big Five’.

This tour includes a relaxing drive along the Karoo Mountains into a unique Renosterveld and Mountain Fynbos landscape with breathtaking colours and unforgettable views.

THE DESIGN EXPERIENCE

Half day tour

Cape Town had the honour of being The Design Capital of the World in 2014 and this has really emphasized the extraordinary talent that so many local artists and artisans have to offer.
The tour starts with a glass of Sparkling Wine in the hotel before going on a wonderful trip through the best of Cape Town. We have hand-picked unusual, authentic, talented and meaningful shops and workshop for you to visit – whether you are interested in leather, ceramics, sculpture or precious stones – we definitely have a great choice for you.

This is followed by a private meeting with a gemologist at Uwe Koetter in the Cape Quarter. Uwe and his team are amongst the most trusted jewelers in the city and has been selling locally and internationally for years.

THE TOWNSHIP

Half day tour

The Cape Town townships are a way of life to many, and over the years they have grown and developed into being their own micro economies.

Experience township life with a guide who will not only explain the various aspects and history of the townships but will also introduce you to local township residents and some of the historically significant landmarks.
