Private Cape Town shopping tour

Explore lesser-known markets and boutiques for the perfect souvenirs

The essence of a private shopping tour

There is no time limit set for this excursion. You will be at the helm of your retail therapy expedition that can be booked for a few hours to a few days.

This tour will tantalise every sense and acquaint you with country’s most renowned artists, in the privacy of their home and studios, and introduce you to incomparable South African products, brands and expertise. Specialist Shopping Guides make available the most reliable, cost effective ways to send goods back home as well as assist with any further sourcing and purchasing of products and co-ordinating of purchases for shipment.

Seek out quaint little streets, mega shopping metropolises, old biscuit mills or chic boutiques lining a waterfront and delve into myriad magnificent shopping options, a purchaser’s paradise.  Head to Green Market Square delighting in a festive ambiance where you can pick up great African art and hand crafted goods as well as colourful clothing. For contemporary design and edgy art Woodstock is just a short cab ride from the city. A must visit there is the Old Biscuit Mill complex, a dynamic market space offering sublime restaurants, exquisite clothing boutiques, decadent designers,  gorgeously handcrafted products in studios, and an abundance of beautiful collaborators coming together in this space to showcase their wares.

Diagonally opposite this is the Salt Circle arcade, a trendy alleyway displaying boutiques and designer shops.

The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is prolific with high end shopping and up-market boutiques set at a bustling commercial harbour with a backdrop of stunning sea and majestic mountain views.In the heart of the city meander up Long Street, which becomes two-way Kloof Street as it clambers up the mountain slope, and colourful Bo Kaap also has a small but vibrant offering. This is just a taste of what is on offer and merely the tip of the memorable magnificent retail iceberg!
