Kickstart your trip to Cape Town

With your local Cape Town host by your side, you can leave your comfort zone in total comfort. Exploring a new city should never feel intimidating, and with your host by your side, it never will.

You’ll explore a pocket of the city like the CBD or Waterfront with your Capetonian host with you every step of the way, getting you acquainted with the ins and outs of the city, where to get your hands on great food (and wine) and how to get around.

No one likes looking like a tourist on their first trip to a new city, so skip that step completely as you weave your way through Cape Town and get to know its personality - you’ll feel like a local in no time, we promise.

Your host would love to share with you their favorite places to eat, hang out and explore, and make recommendations for the rest of your trip so you can continue to explore the city through an inspiring lens.

    • Choose your pace - a casual stroll or grand tour of Cape Town CBD and its surrounds
    • Visit some of the CBD’s iconic spaces like Long Street or Green Market Square, or explore the neighborhoods and buildings that make Cape Town such a unique place
    • Get a taste of Cape Town through the eyes of your host, and acquaint yourself with the briefest of histories, safety tips and general know how
    • Your host will reveal recommendations for secret Cape Town places, and the spots which sound like a good fit for your personality along the way
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
