The historical walking tour was an incredible experience. Ken, the tour guide, was extremely knowledgable and also added a light hearted, fun element to the tour. It was amazing to learn so much about our history in such a short time. I highly recommend this tour not only for foreigners but locals as well, as many, like myself, have forgotten/never been exposed to many aspects of our history.

I highly recommend Cape Town Free Walking Tour, definitely something every tourist and local needs to do. We did both the history tour and Bo Kaap tour. Our guide on both tours was Jennifer who was very knowledgeable but fun. Even though there is quite a bit of walking, you don't feel it because of the various historical sights visited and their stories which are told expertly by the guide. The walk was safe and we got to share this experience with people from other countries. The history of Capetown and South Africa comes alive on this tour. Definitely an experience we will never forget.... Thank you Jennifer

This tour was very informative and interesting, but the tour guide (Ken), is really the person you want to have showing and explaining everything. His knowledge, coupled with his ability to make everyone relate to the history is what made it special. He is a gem of a human, and if you get the privelage to be accompanied by him, you will never be disappointed.

We did the Bo Kaap tour in January 2021 and had Ken as a guide. It was honestly fabulous and such a good ‘COVID-19 friendly’ activity ... the city is quiet (no crowds), walking outside all at a distance and supporting local. We learnt loads and just had a great time. Thank you!

It was wonderful. We were a family group of 10 which included 4 kids & an elderly member in a wheelchair. We did the historic city tour led by Ken. We loved his stories. He brought the city’s history to live. We all enjoyed it and will definitely try the other tours.
