Cape Town Sightseeing
In a city as diverse and fascinating as Cape Town, there is a plethora of superb sightseeing opportunities for visitors. Make the most of your Cape Town sightseeing trip with the tips below.
- Book a tour
Whether it’s a day tour, a walking tour, or an open-top bus tour, a guided tour is one of the best ways to learn about a city, and to experience its most worthwhile attractions. Tour guides are highly knowledgeable, and will provide compelling insight while ensuring that you don’t miss out on the most valuable Cape Town travel experiences.
- Plan a holiday itinerary
Before you arrive in Cape Town, purchase a Cape Town travel guide (or research online) and decide which activities you’d most like to explore. This is an especially good idea if your time in the city is limited. Do you want to discover Cape Town’s famous beaches, or would you prefer to visit museums and galleries? Are you keen to take a tour of the Cape Winelands, or would you prefer to go up Table Mountain? Plan ahead to ensure that you see and do everything you want to.
- Don’t try to cram too much into your holiday
Make the most of every activity you choose, and try not to fit too much into your schedule. Take time to experience your chosen attractions to their fullest – take photos, touch, taste, see and relax. The last thing you want to do on holiday is hurry! It’s far better to see a few sights and make them memorable than to see countless places but be too rushed to remember the experience!
- Book good quality accommodation
The quality of your hotel accommodation can make or break your holiday. Be sure to book good hotel accommodation before you arrive in Cape Town. Luxury hotels, such as the new 5-star Taj Cape Town hotel, offer opulent settings in which guests can unwind in the beautiful city after days spent sightseeing.
Book your luxury Cape Town holiday accommodation in advance to avoid disappointment – especially during peak travel seasons.
