Our Cape Town based travel team is standing by to help plan your perfect Cape Town experience. From the perfect afternoon picnic in Kirstenbosch Gardens to a half-day helicopter tour of the Cape Peninsula, insider tips on the latest pop-up markets and stores to which of Cape Town’s award-winning restaurants we frequent ourselves, we love nothing more than showing our guests the best the city has to offer and incorporating those small details into your tour planning.
