Hi there! I am Rushdi, a fifth generation South African born and raised in the foothills of Table Mountain to parents whose ancestors were slaves brought to the Cape from the east during the slave trade. My ancestors built this city that I call home and I look forward to sharing my experiences from this picturesque corner of the world. Today, I am a proud husband and father, the last generation to experience apartheid and the first to witness the remarkable change in South Africa. Passionate about my culture with a great sense of adventure. I hope to share my Cape Town the way only a local knows how. Taste our heritage, fantastic tastes, sights and sounds from the comfort of a vehicle or stroll leisurely through the city streets. I am here to help you achieve and create lasting memories. My Cape Town offers everything and more for every type of traveler and since we are all unique, I can help you design a tour 100% tailored to your needs.

Rushdi was an amazing guide. As a Cape Town local, he was able to relay the history and the culture in such a genuine way. I was particularly interested in political and colonial history and he was able to adjust the tour based on our preferences. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in District Six, Cape Town, and the history of the area to meet Rushdi for a tour.

Rushdi is an exceptional tour guide, both funny and extremely knowledgeable. He shared some very interesting stories and pieces of SA's culture with us, which was much appreciated ! If you wanna learn more about Cape Town while spending a super nice and friendly time, Rushdi is your guide.
