      The best private food tours & experiences with locals

      Pull on your stretchiest pants, because you’re going to need it in South Africa’s undisputed culinary capital. The city’s difficult past had a silver lining: Over the years, countless cultures have made Cape Town their home, and today, the eclectic food scene celebrates every single one. Taste it all on the ultimate food walking tours in Cape Town with a local Capetonian host guiding you every step of the way! From cheese and charcuterie boards at magnificent wine estates to an on-the-go “bunny chow” – half a bread loaf hollowed out to make room for spicy curry – quickly wolfed down in the city center, food tours in Cape Town will keep you coming back for more.

      Cape Town Food Tour
      From family-run restaurants to fine dining

      There’s nothing pretentious about the Cape Town food scene. Inexpensive local meals like boerewors rolls (a tastier version of a hotdog) and vetkoek (deep-fried dough sandwiching mouthwatering ground beef) are around every corner at unassuming shops any tourist could easily overlook. But maybe you want food tours of Cape Town that are a little more elevated. In that case, the sprawling Winelands of Constantia, upmarket beaches of Camps Bay, and inner-city food hubs of Kloof Street and Bree are overflowing with fine dining options and authentic African flavors all dressed up.

      Must-try Cape Malay

      If there’s one thing that sets Cape Town’s food scene apart from the rest, it’s the city’s homegrown Cape Malay cuisine. Traditional Cape Malay is a fusion of South African, Malaysian, and Eastern influences, and the result is flavor combinations that don’t exist anywhere outside of the Mother City. Experience authentic Cape Malay on Cape Town food tours with your knowledgeable local host to share stories of the city’s past. From curries and chili bites to spicy donuts dunked in syrup and coconut, there’s plenty of iconic dishes to choose from on the ultimate food tours of Cape Town.

        I only had half a day in Cape Town but really feel I got a great understanding of the town and how it got to where it is today culturally, economically and politically. Exactly what I wanted to understand.

        We booked a custom tour as we had specific places to see that were not included with our main package that was put together by a different company. We really wanted to see Bo Kaap and Woodstock and we saw those two places plus much more thanks to our amazing guide Tafadhali! First of all, Tafadhali was very accommodating, easy going and attentive in setting up our custom tour before we arrived. He made sure everything was set up exactly the way we wanted it, easing our minds as this was a last minute addition to our trip! He also made sure to communicate with us as the day of the tour grew closer to make sure we were still good with everything and were enjoying the first part of our trip which meant a lot to us! Once we met him, we felt more like family than people who were paying him to show us stuff and again this meant so much to us. Tafadhali is a great guide who is very interesting, very energetic, extremely passionate about what he does and is extremely knowledgeable about Cape Town. You will certainly enjoy your tour with Tafadhali, now all that is left to do is book him! Now for the tour... Tafadhali met us at our hotel and we decided to walk to Bo Kaap and this turned out to be a great choice as Tafadhali gave us historical and interesting facts about everything we were seeing and he even took time to divert farther off the route when we saw something interesting that we thought we needed to get a closer look at :-) Besides the colorful houses and learning the history we really wanted to enter the Auwal Mosque but it was real close to prayer, so we thought we missed out.... NOPE, Tafadhali negotiated with someone who was unlocking the gates and we were allowed in! The Mosque is beautiful and we were very humbled to be let in and be regaled with history and stories by the fantastic gentleman who graciously let us into the Mosque. From there we made it back to Tafadhali's car and once again were on our way using a longer route so he could show us more of the city than we anticipated seeing with him before ending up in Woodstock to see the awesome building Graffiti as well as making sure we knew the history and other information of the area. Thank you so much for the amazing tour Tafadhali!
