You’ll follow your host as they lead you on a journey through the Mother City, and we guarantee you’ll soon see why locals proudly think their city is the most beautiful in the world.

Of course, we’d be lying if we said you could discover all of Cape Town’s must-sees in just a day, but your local Cape Town host will share with you as much as they can of what makes their city so special.

Enticed by big city lights and cosmopolitan cafe culture, or do you see yourself on the beaches of the southern peninsula, soaking up the laid back lifestyle? Our hosts have always got time for good food, so just let us know what you’d like to try from the city’s diverse and eclectic food scene.

There are so many spectacular hikes, pristine beaches, historic streets, and dreamy vineyards to experience that you couldn’t see it all in a day - but you can sure try.
