City Sightseeing at Sunset in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Cape Town, our gorgeous Mother City is amazing to explore during the day but have you ever seen how spectacular it is from aboard the City Sightseeing Bus at dusk? Now, with their amazing Night Tour, you can!
Running until May 5, 2014, this magical experience gives you the wonderful opportunity to take a leisurely drive along the Atlantic Seaboard, before stopping off for a picnic of your own making and an unparalleled view of the Capetonian sunset from the top of Signal Hill.
The only one of its kind in the world, the Night Tour is great for spending quality time with the family or for a romantic evening with your beloved.
Before you hop on, here’s what you need to know:
• It’s a priceless view but a totally affordable experience: Book your Night Tour tickets online and only pay R90 instead of R100.
• Don’t miss the bus: The bus departs from and ends at the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront until March 8, 2014 at 18h00. From March 8 to May 5, 2014, the bus departs from the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront at 17h30.
• It’s a whirlwind tour: The total length of time of the entire tour is approximately two - three hours but please note, it is not a hop-on, hop-off tour.
• Come hungry and pack a picnic with all your favourite food and drinks.
