Cape Town has not become one of the top tourist destinations for any old reason. The city has so much to do and see and because it understands tourism the destination continues to develop and improve the Cape Town Experience. Yet, despite all the activity and the promotion of Cape Town, people still ask “What can I do when I visit Cape Town?” So, here are a few ideas.

Table Mountain

As you come in to land at Cape Town International Airport the most impressive sight is Table Mountain. When visiting Cape Town pretty much every visitor has to scale this flat-topped icon. There are two ways to get up and down the mountain, firstly one can climb one of the many routes to the top and secondly, there is the cable car. Choosing the right day to summit mountain can be hit and miss at certain times of the year but once at the top on a clear day the view is worth it entirely.

Red Bus

If you visit Cape Town and want to get you bearings or simply want to explore the some of the sights in an easy way, City Sightseeing tours is the answer. Known by many as the red bus company this leading tourism company has become innovative in extending its routes and providing other unique tours.

Fancy a canal cruise and harbour tour or a motorcycle sidecar tour? Here is your answer. The red open top buses and the well-planned hop on hop off routes they cover make exploring Cape Town a breeze.


One of the most amazing ways to explore Cape Town is take a helicopter flight over the city. Cape Town Helicopters is the number one helicopter company in Cape Town, and they have an impressive selection of tours and short flight options. A Helicopter flight over Cape Town is something you will never forget.

Dive with Sharks

Just outside Cape Town you can get up close to the infamous Great White Sharks. Perhaps one of the most thrilling experiences on earth, Cape Town is one of the few places where you can get up close to the large majestic fish with the big jaws.

Drink Wine

Wine is something else that Cape Town is famous for. There are a number of wine regions just outside Cape Town and a wine tour is one of the best ways to explore wine country and taste some of the best wine in the world. Wine tours are easily organised or for those who are self-driving a mobile phone GPS or SatNav can take you to any farm you want to visit. A wine tour will often take a full day and it is a day out like no other for anyone who loves wine and loves food.

Stay in Kommetjie

When in Rome? Well, when in Cape Town, in this case, do as the Capetonians do. Kommetjie is one of the most popular seaside holiday towns for locals. With great beaches, superb scenery and almost total peace it soon becomes obvious why Kommetjie is so loved by locals. Visit for a day or book some Kommetjie Accommodation and stay for a few days, this is will be something you will never regret.
