You’ll follow your local Cape Town host as you weave through the vibrant city, flitting from Africa to Europe to Malaysia and back again - who knew you could get so far in just a three hour experience?

You’ll sample cuisine deeply embedded in the city’s culture; from Cape Malay dishes like samoosa, tomato bredie and bobotie to traditional Xhosa dishes like pap, a porridge made of ground maize or hearty oxtail stew to those South African braai staples like boerewors, you’re bound to find a new favorite dish somewhere along the way.

You’ll soak up the lively atmosphere of hip Bree Street and its eclectic cafe culture, feast on Cape Malay curries in colorful Bo-Kaap and try some artisanal street food at the V&A market. Just bring an open mind (and maybe some loose trousers) - you’re in for a kaleidoscope of flavors and a surprise or two.

  • Enjoy 3 hours with your host, who will share with you some of the tastes that come together to make this city so unique

  • Discover the multitude of dishes that can mean eating like a local, and know you’re eating them in some of the most authentic spots possible
