Full description
Explore the Woodstock/Salt River area of Cape Town, known for its unique, independent shops and small businesses. Most of the city descends into the area on Saturdays, but your local guide knows enough people and cool places to visit to make it fun every day.

Meet your guide at the Woodstock Exchange, a mixed-use venue featuring galleries, funky shops, and cafes. Have a look around the venue and hear a bit about the area and its current redevelopment, before heading to a shop owned by a friendly local. Here enjoy a taste of artisan ice cream, which has become a new trend in the city. From the Exchange, walk over to The Old Biscuit Mill, another cool Cape Town space devoted to unique shops, great food, and community events. Stop in for a tasting of coffee and chocolate, both roasted right on the premises.

End the tour with a few more tastings, this time of some local gin and beer, along with a peek into a distillery. The area shuts down around 6:00 PM, so it is reccomended that you head back to the city center at that point. Your guide can provide all the necessary information on how to get back into the city center, and tips on what else to do and see while you’re in Cape Town.
