Decided to join this tour group last minute and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went on the 11:00 historic tour which runs for some 90 minutes or so. Interesting content and an enjoyable walk very well presented by our guide Gervais.

Ken did a great job with the history tour this morning. We learned about the city and the history of Cape Town from the early days to the establishment of democracy in South Africa. We will be back tomorrow for another tour. Thanks Ken!

Tours are about 2 to 2 1/2 hours long. You can just turn up on the day and put your name down 30 minutes or so beforehand.
