Hike the peaks! Achieving that hike to the top of devils peak and lions head was amazing! Cape point is also something to see. And the Victoria Warf is perfect modern addition to the city!

Make sure that you partake in a Cape Town on a plate tour; it allows you to experience the city on several levels. Also, you must visit Clifton Beach at sunset. That is where these stunning photos that our Flytographer Alicia took!

Samantha's Travel Tips for Cape Town

What is your best overall travel tip for Cape Town?

We hired a guide to hike Lions Head on our first day, we did this because we were told that people sometimes get mugged when hiking the mountains in Cape Town, so we figured having a local with us would make for a bigger group, and hopefully he could deescalate any encounters (which luckily we didn't have) It was great because he told us a lot about Cape Town and gave us recommendations for things to do, and places to eat. We loved our guide so much we hired him for a full day tour to take us to some places he thought we would enjoy, which we did. Highly recommend visiting the Constantia Windelands- (we went to Groot Constantia, and Glen Constantia) both had absolutely amazing wines that we purchased to bring home with us. All the restaurants we went to were fantastic, but our favorite was The CodFather (in Camps Bay) hands down the best seafood I've ever had. The experience is unique too, you go up to a counter to select our fish (you can get many kinds) and how much of it you want, then they prepare it and bring it to your table. We saw some amazing animals on our safari to Aquila, the food was not great there though so pack many snacks.

See the penguins! In addition, the national botanical gardens were incredible! We ended up hiking there for so much longer than expected. The restaurant that overlooked a playground was delicious and great for the kids to play.

Phoebe's Travel Tips for Cape Town

What is your best overall travel tip for Cape Town?

Take as much in the city as you can outside of it. The wineries an hour away are beautiful and charming and the beaches are spectacular. Visiting Robben Island and all of the prisons where Nelson Mandela was held is life changing as well. Mostly, embrace the people. They are happy, proud, joyous and absolutely beautiful.

Call Nadine. Have her shoot you on Signal Hill at sunset. Then, go bar hopping at Botanical Bar or House of Machines! (Oh, and definitely skip the cable car and hike Table Mountain).

What is your best overall travel tip for Cape Town?

Don't stick just stick to your To-Do list. Wander the streets, soak up the sun and get lost in that South African street vibe. I promise you won't regret it.

Chinny's Travel Tips for Cape Town

What is your best overall travel tip for Cape Town?

1) If you're a foodie, try and make reservations to restaurants you want to try weeks in advance. Much harder to get last minute! 2) Soak in every moment and check out tours that educate you on South Africa's history (especially township tours). Though very beautiful, one can't forget the harrowing history of its people.

Fernanda's Travel Tips for Cape Town

What is your best overall travel tip for Cape Town?

For the best coffee visit The Charles Cafe (137 Waterkant St, De Waterkant); Honest Chocolate for gorgeous local chocolate and coffee; For sundowners, The Grand Beach Cafe... The restaurant offers waterfront views amazing food and good vibes; For the sunrises, shouldn't underestimate the powerful views of Lion's head and the amazing feeling of being on a mountain, fully in contact with nature. Best food in town... Hmmm hard to choose 1, Cape Town offers really incredible food everywhere and for every taste. For a mix of everything, from tapas to fine dining, the Vila 47 on Bree Street will not disappoint...
