With Table Mountain as the city’s famous official New7Wonders of Nature backdrop, Cape Town has always been rich in history.
There is plenty to do in the city and peninsula. Whether it is a ride to see Table Mountain, or the scenic views of the peninsula and enjoying safari tours and cape winelands. Cape Town surely deserves being named the best place to visit in the world by the American New York times, and the British Daily Telegraph in 2014. That is why I took it upon myself, to create a list.
The day tour provides a full day of scenic splendour, travelling around the peninsula and including Cape Point, at the very tip of the Cape peninsula, and located within the Table Mountain National Park, a natural world heritage site.
Visit Cape Point for more information to see why this is a must-do as one of the highlights of this tour, and visit 34 South Tours to see how the other activities and scenic points around the peninsula e.g the Atlantic seaboard, Boulders beach penguins and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is included to make this day a scenic feast.
The day tour entails the picturesque views passing through wine routes of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. With a valley of vineyards, gorgeous mountain ranges as backdrop, charming and friendly towns and tempting cuisine at any of the award-winning restaurants that the winelands are famous for, you will experience why this is one of the highlights of the city.
There is a variety of activities to do, from wine and chocolate tasting, to cheese tasting and gourmet picnics, you might just spend the entire day enjoying all these luxuries. See our winelands tours for more ideas on how to spend your day.

And half the fun is the coastal scenic route to get there as Clarence Drive, passing Betty’s Bay, Pringle Bay and , is considered to be one of the most beautiful coastal roads snug against the ocean on the one side and the mountains on the other.
