Our top Cape Town day tours

Cape Town day tours are the perfect way to explore the city’s whole slew of activities on offer. Fondly referred to as South Africa’s Mother City, Cape Town is not just another city. No, it’s a medley of magnificent cultures, historical stories, and the most diverse landscapes you can imagine. 

Discover Cape Town's activities 

Cape Town activities include all kinds of excitement, whatever that might mean to you. Because of its vastly different landscapes within close proximity to one another, you can adventure and relax to your heart’s content. 

Go from lazing on a spotless, powdery beach to hiking up mountains, sipping wine in the vineyards, spending time with penguins on Boulders Beach, dining at some of the world’s best restaurants, to getting your dose of art, history, and culture all in one breathtaking city. 

There’s a reason (no, many reasons!) why Cape Town is consistently voted one of the best cities in the world by travellers from across the globe who fell in love with her charms.

Our 3 favourite Cape Town day tours

We know we shouldn’t really have favourites when it comes to Cape Town activities, and if we had to list every single one we love, the list would go on forever! However, here are some of the very best Cape Town day tours packed with activities for you to experience.

Ultimate Coastal Cape Town Roadtrip: Journey along the city’s most breathtaking coastal drives for unforgettable encounters with Mother Nature’s majesty.

The Scenic Coastal Cape Town Roadtrip is a favourite because it treats you to so many views in one day! This tour takes you through Cape Town’s most scenic drives, from Hout Bay fishing harbour along breathtaking lookout points at Chapman’s Peak. Continue to dramatic views of mountains and crashing waves at Cape Point, Boulders Beach where penguins waddle about and end in the flourishing Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. 

Celebration of the Senses in Winelands: Indulge all your senses on this sensational tour combining wine, food, vineyards and history in the thriving Cape Winelands. 

Then, for all the wine aficionados and “foodies”, our Celebration of the Senses in the Winelands is very popular! The Cape Winelands is known for its wine, but what really makes it memorable are the visions of sun-soaked vineyards with dramatic mountain ranges proudly protruding in the distance. You’ll start your tour in the historic town of Stellenbosch, following its many wine farms and cultural treasures to Franschhoek, a charming yet high-end French-inspired town, ending in Paarl for even more wine, food, and sweeping views.

Classic Cape Town Bucket List: If you want to tick off the Mother City’s big-ticket items like Table Mountain and Robben Island, this is the tour for you. 

This Classic Cape Town Bucket List tour takes you to Cape Town’s top highlights, from the world-famous flat-topped Table Mountain to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, to the culturally-rich Bo-Kaap, with rainbow-hued homes lining the cobblestone streets and Cape Malay spices fragrances drifting through the air.
