Cape Town's Hidden Gems with a Local

Duration: 1h and 30min

Registered on April 04, 2019

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.

Rushid hat uns vor der Tour gefragt, was uns besonders interessiert und darauf auch Rücksicht genommen und uns viel Neues über die Geschichte Südafrikas erzählt. Wir können Rushids Tour jedem sehr empfehlen!

Rushdi was an amazing & informative tour guide. His knowledge, love & pride of South Africa, specifically Capetown, was contagious. Even in sharing the painful past of Apartheid & a not so pleasant time, he had a way of shedding a little light, life & joy into his tour by sharing personal experiences that painted a picture of the culture, history & impact of Capetown & its residents. Rushdi engaged us in the tour, asked of our expectations & painted a picture of Capetown & all it has to offer. I would definitely recommend Rushdi & would use him again as a tour guide. He was definitely a guru of Capetown. Thank you Rushdi for this memorable experience!
