We'll be spending three days in Cape Town. Already have a place to stay (the Ocean Princess). I'd like a small, up-to-date guide book that has maps and covers the major sights but doesn't spend a lot of size and weight on lodging information. Any suggestions?

Hi Judy,

Cape Town Tourism is well organised and you should be able to get your hands on a guide booklet very easily. There is a Visitor Centre at the V&A Waterfront where you can get lots of information. The most popular attractions are for example Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront, Robben Island, Cape Point, the winelands, etc, etc.

You can also have a look at tourism websites like http://www.capetown.travel/attractions/ for info about where to go. TomG and David was also recently in Cape Town, and they have posted about it in other threads.

I hope this helps, and most of all enjoy the trip!!!!

Regards,
Eugene

Guide Book

Here is one we thought was quite good [from Amazon]:

Cape Town (City Guide) [Paperback] Insight Guides (Author)
ISBN-10: 9812823158 ISBN-13: 978-9812823151

We really enjoyed the bus tour - the two day version was great, although you may not want to devote the time.

Enjoy the trip. David
