Cape Town Township tour
South Africa is rich in culture and we are proud of our diverse heritage. The Cape Town township tour is a must for any traveller wanting to discover the unseen side of the city. The tour starts off at the renowned District Six area located within the city centre and then travels down to the bustling streets of Langa and Khayelitsha.
Upon arrival in Khayelitsha you’ll enjoy local delicacies and home-brewed beer to tantalise your taste buds. You’ll also be able to try your hand at traditional dancing as well as visit the magnificent African craft markets. Khayelitsha is filled with fascinating people, art and culture – the tour will leave you with a new sense of ‘Ubuntu’, a South African philosophy which means sharing together.
Cape Winelands tour
The Western Cape has firmly made their mark in the wine industry, with Stellenbosch and Franschhoek at the pinnacle of this success. The Stellenbosch winelands are only a short 30-minute drive from the bustling city and the scenic route is well worth the trip. Stellenbosch boasts a wide variety of wine from Shiraz and Chenin to Pinotage and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as the renowned Méthode Cap Classique (local champagne). The tour will also take you on a drive through the historic and majestic Stellenbosch town, with its Cape Dutch styled homes and breath-taking cathedrals.
If you do a full day winelands tour, the next stop will be the spectacular village of Franschhoek, which means French corner. This town may make you feel like you’ve been transported to France in another era, but when touring the wine farms you’ll be greeted by friendly locals. The charm of Franschhoek lies in its tranquil environment, paired with the best cheese and wines.
