About the tour

In the Mother City’s incredibly diverse heritage, the area of Bo-Kaap is explored through its extraordinary and lively architecture, religious buildings, and spiced cuisine. We will walk talking about the Malay quarter history, the old spice shop (opened only during specific hours), the spectacular and welcoming homes interacting with the friendly locals, and talking about food. Without a doubt, this area is one of Cape Town’s flagships.
