Good day Guru Walkers,

Welcome and thank you for reaching us. 😃

Our guests have reviewed us to be the top rated GuruWalk tour operator in Cape Town and South Africa 🇿🇦. They also highly recommend us as well. In fact, we are the first GuruWalk operator in Southern Africa to reach over 100 and then 200 reviews with mostly 5 🌟 ratings.

For your convenience, we have the most scheduled tours per week.

My name is Michael and I am a professional registered Regional and Provincial Cultural Tourist Guide (WC12125), as well as a registered National Overnight Off Trail Mountain Adventure Trekking Tourist Guide.

I was born in Cape Town and married to Bridget. She is a professional registered Cultural Tourist Guide (WC12124) as well.

Together we have worked and travelled throughout South Africa, as well as in many other countries around the world. We also enjoy membership with the Cape Tourist Guide's Association.

My uncle (who is still alive today) was the neighbour of Nelson Mandela when he spent almost 7 years in the jail cell right next door to Madiba, as a political prisoner on Robben Island.

For more about this, you may want to book our "Oppression and Apartheid to Liberation" walking tour.

We also conduct tours all across South Africa, including Sightseeing Tours, Hiking Tours, Rock Art Tours, Safaris, Adventure Tours, Wine Tours, National Parks, and more.

Michaels focus is on how much he’s getting paid and pointing out the multiple ways to get paid. While political views differ, he was also adamant on pushing his personal views, which I did not appreciate. Overall a bad experience, avoid this guide.

I have been on many Guruwalks in different countries and continents, but this was one of the best. Bridget told me so many interesting things in her friendly manner that I now understand the city better. She also gave me lots of tips for excursions, restaurants and also about safety as a solo female traveler. Thank you Bridget!
