One of the best tours offered in Cape Town is the “Cape Town Eats Walking Tour”. This tour explores Cape Town from all sides.   It aims to climb under the skin of the city so that by the end of the day you understand the pulse of the city.  You will explore it from all sides – the history, the people, their cultures, their cuisines, as well as contemporary Cape Town and its artisanal trends.   Cape Town is a city that has been metamorphosing at a rapid rate over the last ten years – it feels like a butterfly that is emerging from a city that was once a run down area that was purely a business district into a city where locals now live and play.

Bree Street – is home to over 40 new spots in the last 18 months – this is the hub of the quirky, creative and artisanal openings in the city. You will spend time exploring some of the artisanal offerings on Bree Street.

As such the tour keeps changing as new creative and artisanal spots pop up on a weekly basis.   As such it is a great tour to do early in your stay in Cape Town as it orientates you and gives you insight into where you want to return and play or explore further………you cannot conquer it all in one day! The walk tour includes a mix of eats and digestion shopping stops.

Want to taste some of the most delicious artisan bacon in the world?  The tour stops to share a BLT on Bree Street- delicious!

The Bo-Kaap is one of the most beautiful areas of the city.   It is also the heart of the Cape Malay Community – and as such the tour stops to explore and taste some of the local favorite dishes.

Sampling freshly cooked samosas must be one of the most delicious things to try in Cape Town.   Wardia gets up at 3am to make her own pastry!

The tour stops to explore community beading initiatives en route.   MonkeyBiz is a non-profit that now has more then 400 beaders supplying them with beaded artworks.

South African’s love milk tarts.  If you visit a home for tea on a Sunday – you will usually find it served with Milk Tarts.   Both the Afrikaans and Cape Malay community claim this one as their traditional dish!

Maize is the staple of the Black tribes in South Africa.   A foodie exploration would not be complete without trying African food!

Micro Coffee Roasters are scattered all over Cape Town and Woodstock – as such you may become a coffee fanatic.  Truth Coffee Cult boasts that they offer the best cup of coffee in the world.   With the Steam Punk theme – they are one of the most wonderful coffee shops to stop and visit….even if you don’t love coffee!

The Cape Town Eats Walking Tour is a PRIVATE tour and lasts approximately 6+ hours (Biscuit Mill Neighborhood Goods Market is added on Saturdays). You also can add Table Mountain or the Costantia Winelands to this tour to make it a full day.
