This is a tour that can be taken in the morning (8.30am to 12.30pm) or afternoon (1.00pm to 5pm), excluding Sundays. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, smells and history of South Africa's Mother City. You will be given insights and anecdotes of this diverse and dynamic city as we take it all in at ground level. On the menu is a visit to the Castle of Good Hope (South Africa's oldest building) and District Six or Slave Lodge Museums. Along the way we will pass buildings of historic merit and through the beautiful Company Gardens with its many civic buildings – all set against the backdrop of beautiful Table Mountain. From our starting point we wind our way around the city in a clockwise direction. Firstly we head towards the Castle of Good Hope along the way we pass Wagenaar's Reservoir, the flower market, fantastic examples of art deco and colonial architecture. Just before the castle we stop at the Grand Parade and the Old Town Hall. At the castle you can explore at your leisure or with your guide. The route then takes us to the District Six Museum (apartheid era museum) and the Slave Lodge Museum - one of which we will visit. We pass the houses of Parliament and explore the Company Gardens which also houses: St Georges Cathedral, the Holocaust and Jewish Museums, National Art Gallery, SA Natural History Museum and Planetarium. On our final stretch we take in the vibrant and colourful Bo-Kaap Precinct and end up at Green Market Square (traditional African arts and crafts), in the heart of the commercial city centre.
