Experience Boat Tours in Cape Town

Best things to do in Cape Town: Table Mountain dominates the Cape Town skyline, overlooking the city, so makes it one of the places to visit. Another scenic spot is the Cape of Good Hope on the tip of the peninsula. Robben Island prison museum and the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art are top museum choices, while a trip down to the V&A Waterfront is the commercial hub. Oh, and not forgetting Boulders Beach, a sandy cove with a penguin colony.

What to eat during your stay: After your boat trip you’ll no doubt feel hungry, well, all that touring. There are some South African specialities you should try during your visit, which include Bobotie, a spiced minced meat pie with egg on top. Malva pudding, a sweet bread pudding and if you can handle it, a Gatsby's. These are huge subway sandwiches stuffed with fries, cheese, meats and sauces. Should keep you going?

When to visit: It’s well worth remembering that if you are visiting from the Northern hemisphere that Cape Town’s summers are during the height of the Northern winter. So high season is between November and January. It also means the opposite applies, with a Cape Town winter being June to August.

• Welcome to The Mother City, as Cape Town is also known. The reason for this is that it was the first established European settlement in the country. The town itself was founded by Jan Van Riebeeck, and it was used by the Dutch East India Company to grow fresh produce for passing trade.

• This Jan Van Riebeeck has a lot to answer for! With its favourable climate, Cape Town was a perfect area to produce wine. He planted vineyards and bang; the wine industry in the region was born.

• If you are a cyclist, then the Cape Town cycle tour is the world’s biggest individual time cycle race. Over 35,000 people take part in the annual event. Pack that bike and join in the fun.
