Most major cities around the world offer city walking tours, and the Mother City is no exception. Cape Town’s Free Walking Tours make the city walkable for everyone hoping to discover something about the city’s history, architecture and culture.

The playful tours don’t pretend to be in-depth accounts, neither are they very long - about an hour and a half each - but they’re a great introduction for anyone new to the city or, for that matter, residents who want the chance to play tourist in their own city.

The guides are a group of people, each with their own take on Cape Town, who give of their services free of charge, with the possibility of the odd tip (so take your small, or big, change along). Conversely, buy them a cup of coffee. Or Book another paid tour with them. They are extremely reasonable and these guys know Cape Town like nobody else!

To join the tours (there are four) simply don a pair of walking shoes and a hat and head to Green Market Square, looking out for the Free Tour green or yellow umbrellas. The tours leave from here twice a day.

Highlights of the historic tour:
St George’s Cathedral
The Company’s Garden
The Slave Tree
De Groote Kerk
Cape Town City Hall

Highlights of the Bo-Kaap tour:
Chiappini Street
The oldest mosque in the country
Biesmiellah restaurant

Highlights of the District Six tour:

Afterwards you will have a good idea of what you would like to explore further. They do other tours too.
