Half Day Cape Town City Cycle Tour

On this tour you will cover all the main sights in and around the city centre between the sea and the mountain! See the Waterfront, stand where the first ships set anchor in Cape Town over 350 years ago, cycle up Long Street and see the last vestiges of the Napoleonic-era armoury at the Chavoness Battery.  Also see a huge amount more such as how the Castle of Good Hope was saved from destruction, how much the DEIC bought the Cape Peninsula for from the Khoi, why Apartheid was almost inevitable, how Robben Island came to be a penal island and what animals roamed the City Centre only 300 years ago.

Departs: Daily 10h00-14h00 from Vide E Cafe on Green Point Main Road.
