Best Free Tours in Cape Town
Since certain areas of South Africa’s capital have dozens of significant sites so close together, Free Walking Tours in Cape Town are a great way to make the most of your time and see everything this modern and beautiful city has to offer. On the Free Historic City Center Tour, you’ll get to visit iconic places such as Greenmarket Square with a guide, to see where slaves were once sold. On the Free Bo-Kaap Tour, you’ll see some of the most brightly-colored houses in the world and taste local cuisine. Also, the District Six Cape Town Free Walking Tour takes you on a stroll through history, learning about the apartheid era that shook the South African people. These tours depart daily and you only need to book online in advance. Of course, apart from Cape Town city tours, there are private one or two-day excursions or adventure tours that will take you farther afield to see penguins or even swim with sharks.
Highlights of a Free Tour in Cape Town
Cape Town is highly regarded for its ample beaches, towering mountains, and, of course, safaris. Safaris in Cape Town vary by intensity and length. Tourists can go on a simple daytime safari, stay overnight in a safari lodge, or take a luxury safari and stay in a tent. Beyond safaris, there’s plenty to keep you busy with Free Tours in Cape Town, such as the City Hall, Castle of Good Hope, and the Parliament Building. If it’s history you’re looking for, take a ferry to Robben Island: you’ll have the chance to see the former prison where Nelson Mandela was once held captive. For its part, in the famous District Six Museum you will learn about local art and understand its role to fight South African apartheid. Finally, while in Cape Town, don’t forget to snap some pictures at Company’s Gardens, a beautiful local park created over three hundred years ago.
Things to Do in Cape Town
After spending several days sightseeing in the city, joining Free Tour in Cape Town and going for a safari, many tourists still find energy to go for a hike at Lion’s Head, or take one of the cable cars that will take you at the top of Table Mountain National Park. However, if you prefer occupying your days with some retail-therapy, then we recommend you to spend some time in Greenmarket Square, one of South Africa’s oldest squares, for an authentic South African dinner and a bit of shopping. If you’re a culinary adventurer, try some local cuisine such as injeras (flatbread), amanqina (chicken feet), or even some ostrich. For the wine connoisseur, take a day private excursion to visit Constantina Valley, a world-renowned winery that offers magnificent views. Also, Cape Town also has fabulous beaches, so consider heading out to Beta Beach or Camps Bay for a fun day of relaxation with family or friends.
