Explore the living city of Cape Town on foot! History, culture and architecture are woven into our story.
This is a fantastic tour to come to grips with the dramatic history of Cape Town and South Africa as you take in the scenic highlights of the historic Old City. Tour guides use the bustling streets of Cape Town, old buildings and squares, people and places as props to develop our story of Dutch and British rule, slavery and apartheid, freedom and democracy.
We find our way to the colourful Bo-Kaap, the country’s oldest Muslim area, discover the city's first theatre, step into St. George’s Cathedral, pass Parliament, visit Die Groote Kerk, the oldest church in South Africa and allow the story of slavery to unfold as we look at the former Slave Lodge and Slave Monument on Church Square where the origins of the Afrikaans language are also explained.
Stunning art deco buildings accompany us on the way to the Grand Parade overlooked by the Castle, City hall and former Drill hall. Here we also discover the city's original shoreline. The walk ends on bustling Greenmarket Square, where the Methodist Church and Old Townhouse dominate.
Tips for Walkers
Safety in Cape Town has improved greatly thanks to the efforts of the Central City Improvement District. However, as in any big city, care should be taken, so we suggest that you leave valuables like jewellery at home.
