Visit the Diamond Museum and learn about the history of these precious stones and their impact on South Africa's history. Afterwards, we will allow you to grab a sandwich or light lunch at your own account at a nearby restaurant. Our next stop before we arrive at Table Mountain is a 20-minute stop for a photo opportunity in the Bo-Kaap (Colorful houses). From there, you will be driven to the Cable Car station (you can pay for your ticket on the day). Explore the wonder of the world and spend some time soaking in the breathtaking views of the City of Cape Town, Signal Hill, Lion's Head the Atlantic Ocean, Camps Bay, and the Twelve Apostle Mountains.
