Foodie Thursdays

Join a group to explore the culinary delights of Cape Town and get to know the City on foot. Known as the “Rainbow Nation”, South Africa’s diverse culinary influences will be sampled as we visit local eateries and artisans. Your professional foodie tour guide will show you how to get around the City like a local, by both walking and taking public transport.

Included: Services of a professional local foodie guide; bus tickets; 4-5 food tastings; light lunch. 
Tastings vary from week to week, depending on what is fresh, seasonal, and awesome!

Please eat breakfast as usual, as lunch will only be around 1:30pm. We can cater for vegetarian diets on this tour, but unfortunately not strict gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, or halal diets. There is generally a variety of food available though, so clients with dietary restrictions are welcome to book the tour, and sample the foods that suit them.
