Cape Town quickly pulls you into its atmosphere. There's a sense of adventure, with Table Mountain dominating the cityscape and an Atlantic coastline stretching beyond the horizon. Colors are everywhere, from the clothes of the locals to the art installations that dot the city. And it's immediately serene, everything about the city encouraging you not to rush. Things should be enjoyed here, whether it's a conversation at a city market or a rare ostrich steak at a restaurant overlooking the harbor. You'll be greeted at Cape Town International by your private guide, who transfers you to your five-star hotel at the V & A Waterfront. Throughout the next five days, your guide is also a personal chauffeur, taking you anywhere in the city and providing local recommendations for things to do and places to eat.
Your luxury hotel overlooks the harbor, with luxurious verandahs gazing out over the ocean and all its sunset tones. Turn back the other way and the views of Table Mountain are uninterrupted. Staying at the V & A Waterfront also provides easy walking access to one of the city's most popular areas and an upmarket collection of restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops. Within the large pedestrianized zone, you'll also discover food markets and boutique stores, all built into the converted remains of old harbor buildings. This first day is at your leisure, and your guide can assist with anything you require.
