When planning a journey you usually have to decide between a city break, lazy days on the beach or excursions into the mountains. Cape Town makes the decision easy, because this city at the end of the world provides all those things at the same time! With MARCO POLO Cape Town you will experience the metropolis at the southern tip of Africa from every angle. The practical, pocket-sized guide leads you through a city with an eventful, often turbulent history. Surrounded by the Atlantic with its white beaches, the city is dominated by the rugged crags and wild vegetation of Table Mountain. It is a city with an amazing cultural variety and full of exciting contrasts. The City Walks lead you through the elegant City Centre to the colourful Bo-Kaap district, through the thriving student district of Observatory and to the fashionable beach district. The Best Of pages show you things typical for Cape Town, recommends places to go for free, things to do on a rainy day and how best to relax and unwind. The Insider Tips reveal where you can go climbing with baboons and where you can meet the locals for a glass of wine every Saturday, while panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. The coastal strip along the Indian Ocean is cloaked in forest and colourful fynbos vegetation: hence the name Garden Route. This route leads you to almost deserted beaches, unspoilt landscapes and small towns on the Indian Ocean. The Cape Town area is also famous for its vineyards, and in the Wine Tours chapter MARCO POLO takes you to some excellent estates. Last but not least the Dos & Don'ts tell you why you need to take care hiking on Table Mountain and why you shouldn't go looking for views at night. MARCO POLO Cape Town provides comprehensive coverage of all areas of the city. To help you find your way around there are the Where to Start panels, the detailed Street Atlas, the useful maps of the Cape of Good Hope, the winegrowing areas of Stellenbosch-Paarl-Franschhoek-Somerset West and Stellenbosch in the cover, and a pull-out map.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
