About Franschhoek Walking Tours

Strolling the quaint streets of Franschhoek, exploring its little bookshops and chocolatiers, and meandering from one historical attraction to the next is a delight. Walking gives you the opportunity to keep a comfortable pace and not to miss a thing as you get the most out of this intriguing culinary hotspot.

Franschhoek Adventures offers a number of guided walks so that tourists and locals can get the most out of the beauty, fun and interesting aspects of this Cape Winelands gem.

Village History Walking Tour

Because Franschhoek was first established in the 17th century, it is brimming with history and heritage, which seeps through the streets, monuments and old-world architecture. The guided historical walk reveals the ins and outs of the first residents, the wildlife that once occupied the valley, the beginning of the wine industry, and how Franschhoek faired during the Apartheid regime. This is an easy walk that offers a number of route options, and is fascinating and entertaining all at once.

Franschhoek Township Tour

South Africa has a vibrant culture that is made up of different colours, languages and creeds. Many of the local folk live in townships, or informal settlements, which buzz with music, dancing, neighbours laughing on their doorsteps, and children playing on the gravel roads. A walking township tour invites people from all over the world to sample some of the local food and traditional beer, meet the people that live here, enjoy a song and dance performance, and experience a totally different side of life. Those choosing this tour should bring some cash for refreshments (at the tavern or tea garden) and tips for the locals whose home you visit.

Franschhoek Art Route

Art enthusiasts will love exploring the variety of galleries that line the streets of Franschhoek or are secluded in a secret hub of all things creative. This guided tour takes art-lovers to see the wonderful variety of work being produced locally across 20 different galleries. Visitors that want to add something special to this adventure can opt to include a visit to the artists in the township of Groendal too, but will be required to use their own vehicle.

All walking tours require comfortable shoes and clothing, sunscreen and some water to sip on along the way.
