Urban Safari in Cape Town
From US$65.30
Experience an unusual safari on the urban streets of Cape Town during this full-day tour. Hop in to a rustic van covered with eye-catching art, which will ferry you around the city to see some of the off-the-beaten-path landmarks and hidden gems known only to the locals. With a savvy guide in the lead, learn much more about the true spirit of Cape Town than you would exploring the typical tourist hot spots on your own. You'll also visit local wineries and craft beer breweries to taste some of the city's best products.
What to Expect
After pickup from your local hotel, your first stop is the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood, where the houses are painted in all colors of the rainbow – and more. Formerly known as the Cape Malay Quarter, the multicultural residents of this old district have brightened up the entire city with their daring and vibrant color schemes. If you’re looking for a way to feel the true spirit and energy of Cape Town locals, this is the best way to do it.
Afterwards, experience the city in one of the most authentic ways possible. District Six is a former inner-city residential area where over 60,000 of its non white inhabitants were forcibly removed during the 1970s Apartheid regime. You’ll be shown through the streets of District Six and shown graffiti that touches on social issues, murals that speak of a deep connection to Africa. 
Next, onward to the next stop at the Devil’s Peak Tap Room, home to arguably the best beer in South Africa. For those of us who don’t quite fancy beer, wine is available as well. Once you've had your fill, you'll continue down Chapman's Peak Drive. Carved out of the rock face, the slow winding road offers jaw-dropping views of Noordhoek, Hout Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. The various stopping points along the road offer prime views for that perfect Instagram photo – no filter needed.
Take a left turn afterwards for a dirt road leading to Cape Town’s most stunning winery. Located in the sleepy town of Noordhoek, take in the quiet beauty of the long beach of Noordhoek as well as the dramatic mountain range in front of you. Here you'll enjoy some fantastic wine sampling. This town is famous for its countryside meet beach vibe and the Cape is famous for her sorbet sunsets. The only way to get the complete view is to chill out with a sundowner drink (BYO) perched on some boulders overlooking the ocean. Return to your hotel around 5-6pm.

A bit of this a bit of that

Loved how this tour included this and that and ultimately being a value for money setup for a local mover on a budget. Got to tick wine tasting and Bo Kaap in one go. Thumbs up

Great Relaxed Tour

I recommend this. The value to cost is pretty high and I thought Richard, the tour guide was great. If i could do one part over, I think I'd leave this for my last day instead of first. This was a relaxed tour - really...More
