If history, culture and heritage interest you then you will love this full day tour. Dubbed the ‘walk to freedom’ tour, this unique and interactive experience will showcase some of Cape Town’s most iconic attractions that pathed a way forward for the people of South Africa. History and culture have become the backbone the ‘mother city’. This epic tour will take you back in time to the days of the first Dutch settlers, slavery, and how apartheid influenced the city from a cultural and human rights point of view.

What iconic areas to we cover on this epic day tour?

The tour covers the Bo-Kaap, a slave area that was freed and developed into the colorful town it is today. Discover the unique culture of this area as we take a walk through the streets.

The second part of the tour takes us to Zonnebloem. An area previously known as ‘District 6’.  We take some time strolling through the ‘living museum’ that incorporates memories about the forced removals of the oppressed people of the time by the apartheid regime and how the area has developed into what it is today.

This part of the tour sees us separating the city of Cape Town and heading to the notorious area known as ‘The Cape Flats’. We make a stop at the Gugu S’Thebe Arts and Cultural Centre situated in the Lang Township. The Centre is dedicated to the Langa community and helps with socio- economic empowerment. Take some time strolling through the arts and crafts stalls where you can purchase some local curios and art. We will also take a walk through the streets with a local guide so you can get a glimpse of township life and get a feel for the soul and culture of Langa.

We then take a drive through to the Alfred and Victoria Waterfront. The tour concludes with a boat ride across the sea to Robben Island to see where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years. The local guide will take you on a coach tour and walking tour through the island and prison facilities.
