Called the Mother City among locals, Cape Town has a relaxed and leisurely atmosphere and is distinctly more 'western'. Hear the echoes of its Dutch and British colonial past, as a private guide takes you around the city's historical sites, tracing the European influence.
Among other touristic privileges, appreciate a unique blend of history, military ceremonies and craftsmanship at South Africa's oldest colonial building, the Castle of Good Hope, that once was a fort and a welcoming port for sailors. Exactly at midday, expect the resounding boom of the Noon Gun, an old cannon being fired atop Signal hill. And, surely, fall in love with the Historical Company's Garden that features rose and vegetable gardens, an aviary, fishpond, Japanese garden and lots of adorable, friendly squirrels.
Highlights: the Castle of Good Hope, the Historical Company's Garden, Malay Quarters, the Noon Gun.
