Beautiful city - It's a very beautiful and friendly city. I would definitely recommend for any one. Everything you may need is around you. Going to tourist destination is not a hustle. "My citi" bus tops it all off

Central convenience - Cape Town is always the best. We were close to everything. (A woman is at her happiest if she can go shopping without any hassles.)

Argus Cycle Tour visit - We loved Cape Town! It’s a well-maintained, clean city and has a great public transport system. The Argus Cycle Race was well organised. Johannesburg's City Council should go there for a few days and learn how to manage a city.

Bustling vibrancy - Unlike many other South African cities, Cape Town's city center is relatively safe, clean and full of fantastic places of interest. Take a stroll through these historical streets and you'll find a myriad of small shops, restaurants, and attractions. Popular features include the lovely company gardens, the historical Castle of Good Hope, Iziko Museum of Natural History, and Greenmarket Square. Everything that you'll want to see and do in Cape Town will mostly be here, or very close by.

History of City of Cape Town - First, Cape Town is the city in the world with the most recorded history IN THE WORLD! I want to believe that very few locals and visitors new that Cape Town got it's own river, running through the city. From the first maps to the current maps, a river, running through the area called 'The Gardens'. The oldest statue in SA, of Sir Grey, is in this gardens, behind the SA Library, and in this library is a copy of four 'first folio's' of Shakespear. The oldest and shortest mountain pass is 'Grey's Pass', at the top of Oueen Victoria Road, running on the side of the gardens. On the maps still a 'mountain pass'. Golden Acre in Adderley Street is the oldest shopping centre in SA. Table Mountain is officially one of the Natural Wonders of the world. And about gardens: Kirstenbosch Gardens is one of the eight most beautiful gardens in the world. The heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital was Dr Chris Barnard's first in the world. The Noongun is the oldest tradition in SA, fired twelve o'clock every day, exept Sundays. At first it was fired at one o'clock from the Castle, to announce the time to the city and ships, then moved to Signal Hill. The Castle of Good Hope in the city, is the oldest building in SA. We have the olest mosque in Dorp Street. Heritage Square got the oldest grape producing vine in SA, they harvest enough grapes to produce about twenty bottles of wine. The cement dolosse at the breakwater side of the Waterfront, got global patent rights. Cape Town, with our eleven official languages, are a vibrant city, many day-tours, exiting sites to visit, and being in the hospitality industry myself, all visitors are sad to go and exited to be back soon. Every day a city to enjoy!
