Very informative tour with the guide Gervais Ali. Very impressed with how he projected his voice and stopped along the way to make sure everyone in the group moved together and didn’t miss any information.

Note: Bring along change for some delicious local treats to sample along the way.

I did the Apartheid to Freedom and the Bo Kaap tours and both were fantastic. I had the same guide, Matthew, for both tours and he shared lots of information in the form of stories which brought the history and culture to life. Highly recommend.

We did the HistoryTour with Gervais this morning (Wed 4th April). Very easy to locate the starting point. Probably around 20 people on the tour, which was a good number. Gervais voice carries well and everyone can hear. His knowledge was excellent and the whole tour was very informative. Our family of 5 (children aged 8, 12 & 14) all learnt a lot. A great way to introduce the city and begin to understand the somewhat complicated history. Really not much walking so very suitable for all. Highly recommend Gervais! And going back this afternoon for the Bo Kapp tour.

We did two tours with this company, both were good and presented in a way one can remember and enjoy. Both guides did a good job and earned their tips. (Sorry guys, I forgot your names).

However, I feel like the tours should be a bit longer and made more into an experience. I felt like the tour ended just as I started to feel the vibe of the group and the guide. SA is a magnificent country and guides we had seemed to be really interesting people so my advice for you is, get off the script sometimes and tell people more about your life, the present day and the way you see the future of your beautiful country... simply make it more personal.

Again tho, this was the highlight of our visit to cape town so make sure to join at least one of the tours (and I feel like you'll end up joining all of them as we did at the end).

Highly recommend the historical tour to start your trip in Cape Town. Guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and related personal stories. It goes for about 1.5 hrs although the walk isn’t far you stop at some great sites.
