Spend Women's Day (and the long weekend) exploring Cape Town

August 2021

Women’s day is just around the corner, and we’ve done some research for you for the perfect way to celebrate being a woman or treating the special lady in your life.  With Women’s Day falling on Sunday, 9 August, and with Monday being a public holiday, this is fantastic as it makes it a long weekend.  We at City Sightseeing have some amazing special to celebrate all the women in our lives.

Women’s Day is all about fun, being celebrated, and being spoilt

Bus & Free Breakfast

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  And when you combine this with a full day out, we couldn’t think of a better way to spend the Women’s Day weekend with us.  Jump onboard our Red Route or Blue Route, which offers over 30 stops along the way, allowing you to experience the Mother City at your own pace.

Start the day by jumping on the Blue Mini Peninsula Route at Stop 1 at the V&A Waterfront or Stop 5 on Long Street.  The first stop will be at the Urban Food Market in the city centre where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast, which is included in your ticket price.  At Urban Oasis you can choose from their Full Urban English breakfast (2 Eggs, 2 Rashers of Macon, 2 Slices of toast, 2 breakfast sausages and Tomato), a delicious 3 Egg Omelette (3 Eggs, Macon, Green Pepper, Onions and Cheese) or their Fully Loaded Croissant (which includes Egg, Green Pepper, Cheese, and Macon).  What a great way to fuel your system before enjoying the rest of the day hopping on and off on our Famous Red Open Top Double Decker bus.

Bus & Adventure

For those ladies who enjoy the adrenaline and are thrill-seekers, we definitely recommend booking this experience.  We are sure by now you have heard about the Sky-Hi ride at the new Hotel Sky in the city centre.   This gravity-defying, 30m high Sky-Hi Ride (located on the 28th floor of this hotel), offers a breathtaking drop, reaching speeds of 75km/hr. This is the 1st of its kind in Africa and only 1 of 7 in the world!  This exhilarating experience is combined with our City Sightseeing Red Bus, including 3 different routes, where you'll have plenty of opportunities to explore the Cape Town landmarks and attractions that appeal to you most, at your leisure.  Do the adrenaline ride at the start of the day or end of your city exploring and make the Sky-Hi ride the grande finale!

Hop onboard our Red Open Top Double Decker bus which meanders around the mountain towards the Constantia Winelands.

Alternatively, take a stroll around this magnificent historical estate or enjoy a tour of their iconic cellar.

Wine for the win

The route continues onto Eagles Nest Wine Estate where you can taste the full range of Eagles’ Nest Wines in their beautiful Tasting Room.  The cost for wine tasting is R85 per person. Compliment your wine tasting with a platter designed to accompany their wines.  Eagles Nest offers a great selection of platters including their Deli Cuts Platter at R200, an Artisan Cheese Board at R215, or their Antipasto Platter for 2 at R335.

The final stop is Beau Constantia, a boutique wine farm situated at the top of Constantia Nek overlooking False Bay, offering views for days.  Enjoying wine tasting of their award-winning wines, or enjoy lunch at the famous Chef’s Warehouse where their chefs offer a seasonal and produce-driven menu that changes regularly, including their signature experience being tapas for two.

This really is a perfect girl’s day-out experience.
