What to See in Cape Town in 24 Hours
Are you asking yourself what to see in Cape Town in 24 hours? Well, while you are in Cape Town you should visit some of the magnificent landmarks this town has to offer. So, here you will find some pretty interesting places to visit. We booked Cape Town Sightseeing Tour with Hop On Hop Off Bus because we believe this is the best thing if you are in a new city for the first time. As we did not have our car, this was the perfect opportunity to see the city and to visit all the landmarks. You can choose 1-day or 2-day ticket for your adventure. There are 2 main routes; the red and the blue one and two shorter routes; yellow and purple one.
The red route covers the city tour and it will take you to different places around Cape Town. You will see the historical Clock Tower, which is the main point of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town International Convention Centre, Greenmarket Square, where you can take a guided city walk tour, impressive St George’s Cathedral, which is an important part of local history, South African Museum where you can immerse yourself in local history and culture, Cape Town’s most famous hotel Mount Nelson where you can have your afternoon tea, SA Jewish Museum, District Six Museum, the oldest building in South Africa The Castle of Good Hope, Jewel Africa, Table Mountain Cableway where you can get off the bus and take the ride to the top, cosmopolitan beachfront Camps Bay, President Hotel, scenic promenade Sea Point with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants, Winchester Mansions, Green Point Lighthouse and of course Two Oceans Aquarium where you could board your next bus for the Blue Mini Peninsula Tour.
The Blue Mini Peninsula Tour
The blue route will start at the Two Oceans Aquarium where you can see animals from the two oceans that surround the Southern African coast and will take you further to the Foreshore area, the famous botanical Kirstenbosch Gardens. Here you can change the bus and take a Wine tour of Constantia Valley, which is the oldest winemaking region in Southern Africa. When you continue your blue route you can make a stop at Africa’s largest bird park World of Birds with more than 400 different species, visit the Imizamo Yethu Township, the harbor Mariner’s Wharf with many restaurants and shops. The last part of the tour will take you to the Camps Bay, Sea Point, Urban Park and back to the Two Oceans Aquarium.
We also took the Canal Cruise tour with a small boat that took us on a tour around Cape Town’s residential Marina. The Marina is very peaceful and beautiful and we would recommend you to take this short tour.
All in one this is a perfect experience and a great way to see the city and all the major sightseeing points. If you are planning to visit Cape Town for just a few days than we would recommend that you take the Cape Town Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus and enjoy the ride around the peninsula. It was an unforgettable experience, which we can only recommend.
