Cape Town Private and Small Group Guided Tours

( 29 )
Nicknamed "Mother City," Cape Town is the de facto heart of South Africa.
Cape Town is a port city cradled in the bay below South Africa's scenic Table Mountain. It has a colorful past with many different incarnations—from ancient indigenous Khoisan settlement to Dutch colony to slave trading hub to multicultural modern democratic state. Off the coast of Cape Town is Robben Island, the former penitentiary where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 of his 27 years in jail. Today, Cape Town is celebrated for its panoramic views, multicultural energy, and extensive food and wine scenes. Experience Cape Town private tours with Context Travel.

We have done many Context Tours. Your question as to whether I would recommend Context is not logical since we just brought 5 guests to this tour. We have clearly already recommended you. All of us were glad to have done this tour.
Joline is wonderful and a wealth of historical and contemporary knowledge, exactly what I was hoping for to introduce me to South Africa and Cape Town's role in shaping the country. She was flexible and answered all my questions as our conversation and tour led to topics outside of the stated tour. I will definitely use Context again!
Joline was an extremely informed guide who provided wonderful background to our tour of Robben Island - I wish we had more time to experience more of Cape Town with her.
