Collection from airport by Archie our registered tour guide in his air-conditioned car, van or bus.
Settle in – depending on your mood may I suggest the following two neighbourhood restaurants for your evening meal.
Wijnhuis or Barristers in Newlands Village - walking distance from Riversong – both restaurants offer excellent service and good food. Our Night manager can walk with you to the restaurant or you can call a taxi - it is about a 10 minute walk from the guest house.
If you are too tired you can call Mr. Delivery or Butlers Pizza and enjoy an early night with a fast food delivered dinner in your room.
Please prepare for your outings by taking, cameras, water, hats, sunscreen and a jacket with. (even in summer it may look warm but it is very cold on top of the mountain and windy areas close to the Atlantic Ocean.
Archie to collect you from the Guest House at the time you arranged with him. Suggest a visit to our local Food market - the Biscuit Mill which starts 9.30 and ends 2.30pm - this market is only open on a Saturday morning – “Local is Lekker” (lekker means nice or good!). The Market is a great open air local foodie/trendy lifestyle market. Tip do not have a large breakfast if you want to take advantage of the free tastings offered at the market. The market has other interesting stalls and shops - not only food. (Clothing, beads, home wares).
Afterwards city orientation drive around the City Centre to hear how it all started. Then a visit to Table Mountain via Cable Car. Next stop Green Market square in the City centre. (African Curios and arts and craft). Then on to Victoria & Alfred Water front for shopping and sightseeing. At 3pm catch the ferry to Robben Island (this is where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years). Suggest an early dinner at any of the many V&A Waterfront restaurants. Then catch taxi back to the Guest House at your leisure. Groups can split up or stick together.
Archie to collect you to do the Cape Peninsula Tour which includes the Atlantic Seaboard via Hout Bay. The Hout Bay Flea Market and Hout Bay lifestyle markets are open over the weekends, Cape Point, Boulders Beach (penguins sanctuary) at Simonstown. Visit Kalk Bay and Muizenberg.
End your day with a delicious seafood dinner at Harbour House in Kalk Bay before returning to the guest house.
Archie to collect you to do the Wine lands Tour. You will visit Stellenbosch (Dutch influence) and Franschoek (French influence). This is not only a wine tour but a visit to historic towns and villages along the way. There are stops at wine farms and stalls, art galleries and curio shops. The scenery is stunning. A wonderful tour even if you are not interested in wines and cheeses.
Suggest: Lunch at La Petite Ferme in the Franschoek area or early dinner at Moyo at Spier near Stellenbosch before returning to the guest house
Archie to take you to Kirstenbosch gardens (morning) and then to the World of Birds in Hout Bay or Duiker Island to see the seals in the afternoon. End your day with dinner at the Chapman's Peak hotel, famous for it's stunning seafood. Or watch the the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean from the 12 Apostles Hotel before returning to the guest house,
