Keven did a fabulous job on this 90-minute tour. He spoke very passionately from his heart about this evil system in South Africa's history. The tour is nicely paced and quite informative, as you go from place to place. I highly recommend it!

We took the Bo Kaap tour with the guide Ken, who was fool of knowledge and took us on a very interesting journey, fool with stories and historical facts. It was a very colourful sight spiced with Ken's tips.
