After being picked up at your hotel in the central Cape Town area, the drive to the city centre takes us past famous landmarks such as the Castle of Good Hope (visit to Castle of Good Hope is time permitting) built in 1666 by the Dutch East India Company, and City Hall, a baroque building, and the Grand Parade.

As we follow the city's main thoroughfare, Adderley Street, we will see St. George's Cathedral, the Anglican Diocese of Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu. We will pass the Company Gardens and the Malay Quarter (also known as the Bo-Kaap, which means "Above Cape" because of its location up against the slopes of Table Mountain). In the early 18th Century, thousands of slaves from Java, Ceylon and other Far Eastern regions were brought to Cape Town. After slavery was abolished, their descendants, known as the Cape Malays, settled here.

Continue to join a sparkling tour, witnessing the art of diamond cutting and the careful craftsmanship of jewellery manufacturing by skilled experts. Discover the history of the diamond and gold trade in South Africa.

You will be offered the option of continuing to Table Mountain, where you can ascend to the top (weather permitting) by the rotating cable car. Here you will see wildflowers and the famous silver tree, and marvel at a bird's-eye view of the city and its beaches. On a clear day, it is even possible to see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on one side and Cape Point on the other.

Afterwards, we descend the mountain, before heading back to the city centre.
