Good day, My name is Michael and I am a registered Regional and Provincial Cultural Tour Guide, as well as a registered Overnight Off Trail Mountain Adventure Tour Guide. I was born in Cape Town and married with one daughter. I have worked and travelled throughout South Africa, as well as in many countries in Europe. We also do tours all over South Africa including Rock Art Tours, Safaris, Adventure Tours, Wine Tours, National Parks, and more.
Bo-Kaap Walking Tour
"Secret places . . . we'll take you there"
The Bo-Kaap Walking Tour is one of those bucket list must do's when visiting Cape Town.
This area is a photographer's paradise where one can admire the friendly locals casually going about their daily routines.
We'll start at Greenmarket Square, then move on to learn about this interesting place full of cultural heritage.
The tour takes us into a largely Muslim quarter of the city, which also happens to be the oldest residential area in Southern Africa.
Guests will have a chance to experience the area by using one's 5 senses:
Learn and see how the naturally available rock was used in the construction of buildings and other features. Also, get a sense of how the geographic lay of the land influenced the development and direction of the suburb.
We'll visit places of worship including the oldest Mosque in Southern Africa. Get to know how slaves introduced Islam to the Cape and how stories of their suffering and hardship can be told by the locals who are largely descendants of these unfortunate people.
The area is rich in culture from Africa; the southeast Asian islands of the Indian Ocean as well as from Europe and the Middle East.
The tour finishes back at Greenmarket Square where one can enjoy refreshments at a restaurant in the area.
We are ready to welcome you!
Please meet the guide at Mesopotamia Restaurant, on the corner of Burg and Shortmarket street Greenmarket Square at . The guide will be wearing an official tourist guide badge.
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
