What would you do if you only have one day in Cape Town? That is exactly the question I asked a few Capetonians - musicians, wedding suppliers, artists travel agents and tour operators.
Everyone had one thing in common - they love Cape Town. So without further ado, let me share their favourites.

I would take him/ her on a People and Portrait Township Tour. It is awesome! I do the best Township Tour.
Loads of opportunity to get great photographs, the kids are so special and photogenic. We visit a shebeen and drink home made Umqumboti beer with the locals.
It is a lifetime experience, and lots of people are nervous to go into township in South Africa with expensive camera equipment, but it is perfectly safe and lots of fun!
Peter Haarhoff - Owner of the Cape Photographic Company offering photographic tours in the Western Cape.
The V & A Waterfront is a must- a place for an abundance of unforgettable experiences and Table Mountain is a must see for everyone.

I then take him to town where we'd jump on some bicycles, ride through the Company Gardens and show him all the cool little coffee shops and boutique stores in town.
For a snack, we will have lunch at Clarke's in Bree Street where we'd eat cheeseburgers.
An afternoon of getting up to Table Mountain for a stroll and enjoying the view then back down to the Mount Nelson for a spot of tea.
After that, we'd hop onto the My Citi bus and get down to &Union to enjoy some craft beer and maybe some local music.
We'd finish the evening hanging out with friends and eating good food at The Sidewalk Cafe before returning home to crash.
