CITY, TABLE MOUNTAIN & LUNCH – HALF DAY
Tour Code: FC02
Depart the city for the Lower Cableway Station to board the revolving cable car for a 5-minute ride to the top of Table Mountain. 1086 meters above sea level, it affords bird’s-eye views of both city and Peninsula as you walk its summit (weather permitting).
Return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter, for a walk through the Company Gardens, the fresh produce gardens for ships and locals from the mid 17th Century and today, home to the SA Museum, Cultural History Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St George’s Cathedral. Stroll through the city to Greenmarket Square to browse African mementos at its bustling market stalls.
Drive to the Castle, the oldest building in South Africa with its collection of Old Cape paintings and take in the Grand Parade where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation on his release in 1990.
Move on to the District Six Museum to view a moving collection of stories, pictures and memorabilia highlighting the colourful life of this suburb which now stands empty, thanks to the destruction of homes and forced removal of residents during the height of the Apartheid era.
Lunch at one of the city’s popular restaurants, before returning to your hotel.
Inclusions: Entrance Fees for all City Entrances and Table Mountain. A la Carte Lunch, Bottled Water.
