You’ll spend the day with one of our local Capetonian hosts, who can’t wait to share with you their favorite places to hang out, where to get your hands on the best food and show you the city through an inspiring lens. You’ll weave your way through a pocket of the city, discovering its diversity and the communities who are lucky to call the Mother City home.

You’ll have time to see some historic landmarks and districts like the Waterfront and Bo-Kaap, laze your afternoon away sipping wine in a vineyard carved into the mountain-side or on a pristine beach, get cultured in a gallery like the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa and maybe even have time for a short hike up Lion’s Head in time for sunset.

We know that a city is more than a place, but a feeling. And so that’s exactly what you’ll experience on your day with your host, as you discover Cape Town your way.

  • Get what you want out of the Mother City on a private and personalized experience

  • Enjoy local music, quirky restaurants, historic neighborhood strolls or go for a walk in the mountains and earn a breathtaking view of the city
