      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.

        Tafa was an excellent guide - his English is brilliant and his knowledge of all things African is vast. Tafa is such a lovely person and you really feel like you are in safe, caring hands with Tafa. He is a great guide.

        Tafa gave us an amazing experience sampling a variety of local cuisines. Starting in Bo-Kaap with Malay dishes and on to kore traditional African dishes and then for an open market experience. Tafa made the experience a delight engaging in great conversation!
