“Pretty”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

A really pleasant place for an old school weekend afternoon. Galleries, museums, and even a decent restaurant. Definitely worth a visit!

“Christmas festival”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Well maintained garden. Very hot in summer. We visited to see what the hype was around the Christmas festival. Not sure what we were expecting, but tables & tables of bric & brac and fast foods, was probably not it. A few tables had pretty handmade items, which should be the criteria (not the same old, same old one finds at flea-markets!)

Beautiful gardens filled with flowers and squirrels. Gets very busy over the weekends as it is a popular picnic spot. close proximity to other museums.

“Pleasant Oasis”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Think mini- mini- mini- Central Park. A small oasis in the City Bowl, very pleasant for strolling, reading and people-watching. There were a number of comments suggesting that it may not be safe. I am a single woman and strolled the length of Company Gardens up and back two different times with no feelings of discomfort. If you go on a Sunday you're sure to see at least one wedding group taking picktures in this lovely setting.

“Lovely peaceful area in the centre of Cape Town”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The Company's Gardens are a lovely place to visit just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
There are a number of museums and interesting historic buildings on the perimeter of the gardens and a great view of Table Mountain up ahead.
As with all areas in Cape Town, keep to the central part and be alert, there are a few shady characters around.
The squirrels are a delight and very tame.
