The easiest way to visit all Cape Town neighborhoods in one day is to get on one of the red tourist buses. So start the day with a ride on long street in the city bowl and take your ticket for the red bus on this street full of local shops. The Cape Town city tour to Table Mountain circuit will first take you to Bo-Kaap, the colorful part of the city; then you can choose to get off at the cable car stop Table Mountain or book the spectacular view at the top of the Table for the sunset (it's best to buy tickets online to avoid the queue); you will then go to Camps Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa, then in the districts of Sea point and Green dot to finally arrive at the port of Waterfront.

In the evening, do not miss the most beautiful sunset in Africa ... Enjoy it in a bar Camps Bay or, like us, admire the view from the heights of Cape Town. Indeed, the best is to be at the top of Table Mountain ! The tour would not be finished if you did not linger after dinner in the lively bars of Kloof Street. We do not recommend it but if you go on Long Street in the evening, beware of pickpockets and bad meetings.
