Start your morning with a pickup from your accommodation in Cape Town and begin your tour in the heart of the city, otherwise known as Adderley Street. While exploring this area see historical monuments like Bartholomew Dias, Jan van Riebeeck, and Zacharias Waganaer Reservoir. Proceed to the Castle of Good Hope, one of the oldest buildings in South Africa and have the chance to witness the Key Ceremony or the Cannon Firing Ceremony. Afterward, drive through the city and pass by City Hall where former president Nelson Mandela delivered his first speech after he was freed from prison. Arrive in the Bo-Kaap, formerly known as the Cape Malay Quarter, and take a photo stop with the colorful historic houses and have the opportunity to buy and taste Malay foods like Samoosas, Koeksisters, and Melktert. From the Bo-Kaap, make your way to the Noon Gun, a historic time signal in the city of Cape Town. While here, get an incredible view of Table Bay, the city center, the Atlantic Ocean, Robben Island, and Table Mountain. Move on to Afrogem Jewellers for a jewelry factory tour to see the manufacturing of exquisite African jewelry.  This tour culminates with a stop at Table Mountain to take the cable car to the top of the mountain for a guided tour.
