This tour offers a good mix by visiting the jubilant city of Cape Town and the naturally stunning Stellenbosch and Franschoek towns. This trip is really great for those looking for a break that encompasses nature, city, adventure and history. The activities we have included in this trip offer the chance to experience a wide range of what Cape Town has to offer. The day trip to Cape Point gives you the opportunity to explore the stunning beauty of the Cape Peninsula. Robben Island is a deeply informative trip about the apartheid in SA that occurred in still recent history, and the full day trip to Agulhas lets you go to the most southern tip of the continent where the Atlantic and Indian Ocean meet. Whether you drink wine or not the Stellenbosch and Franschoek areas are beautiful places to visit, offering a quaint small town atmosphere with local shops and plenty of great eateries. A great way to relax after the buzz of Cape Town.
You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel for 9 nights. You will be given time to settle in for the rest of the day before being picked up in the evening for a meal at the famous Gold Restaurant.
Today you get to visit the colourful houses of Bo-Kaap on a guided walking tour of the area. This area used to be known as the Malay Quarter and is situated at the base of Signal Hill. Bo-Kaap has an interesting history and provides a unique cultural experience, in stunningly bright surroundings.
Today is a full day private tour with a local guide taking in some of the most outstanding scenery around Cape Town. Cape Point is at the tip of the Cape Peninsula and one of the southern most part of table mountain national park, a declared Natural World Heritage Site.

Today is yours to spend at Leisure. A suggested trip today is out to Camps Bay, where you can walk along the beach, spend some time taking in the views and perhaps enjoy lunch/dinner at one of the many ocean front restaurants. We highly recommend being here for sunset over the water...simply stunning.
This morning you will be picked up by a local driver and taken down to the Clock Tower ready to embark on a tour of the historic Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 27 years. There is a ferry ride across to the island, where you will then pick up a bus on arrival for a tour of the island, followed by a tour of the prison by a former inmate. You will then return back by ferry to the clock tower where your driver will be waiting to take you across to Kirstenbosch botanical gardens.
This morning you will be picked up after an early breakfast ready for a full day wine tasting tour in Stellenbosch and Paarl. If you have specific vineyards you want to visit please let us know. If not we will arrange for a visit to 4-5 vineyards in the region based of your preferences. The final destination is a wine and cheese pairing, which demonstrates exactly how well these two go together! Following the wine tour you will be transferred to your accommodation ready for a 2 night stay.
You will be picked up around mid-day and transferred to your accommodation in Franschoek for the next 2 nights. You will have the rest of the day to relax.
Today is set aside to allow you to visit the town of Franschoek in your own time, maybe even doing the infamous ‘Wine Tram’ or you can just relax at the hotel if you would prefer. If you want us to arrange another private wine tour or another activity for this day then just let us know!
At a pre-arranged time you will be picked up and transferred to Cape Town Airport for your flight home.
