Wonderful tour of the gardens at Vergelegen. Informative guide, a well paced tour and as always Kate was a warm and welcoming host. I highly recommend Culture Connect tours!

We took a walking tour around Salt River's street art scene - what a revelation in my own city! So much colour and vibrancy in an otherwise hard-knocks neighbourhood. Kate has a light but lively and informed approach. We walked in autumn, starting at 4.30pm and ending just as the sun went down. It was really great to walk these streets in a group with a guide who knows her way. We felt safe and I loved seeing the art live alongside the real life of the streets - it was Ramadan and the many Muslim residents were waiting for sundown so they could break their fast. Highly recommended!

A really interesting and enjoyable tour of the Castle in Cape Town, organised by Culture Connect with Jeanne Bonnema as the tour guide. Jeanne showed us several things that I did not know about, in spite of me having visited the Castle many times over the past 50 years. The tour ended with a visit to the Cape Muslim & Slave Heritage Museum and a wonderful light meal arranged by Igshaan Higgins, the founder of the CM&SHM. All in all a great day out.

Kate is a great organizer of trips in and around Cape Town. She has the connections to bring together historians, architects, and other experts to learn about the city. We have really enjoyed the experience of her tours (History of the City, Art Deco, & Castle) and would highly recommend. They are great for locals who want to know more and for tourists who don't want to miss out on key elements of what makes Cape Town unique. Kate make it easy to work with her and is flexible and very knowledgeable.

I thouroughly enjoyed the walking tour with Kate Cane-Briggs from Culture Connect SA on Saturday, even though walking through an urban streetscape in 30degrees C was not the most ideal way to explore Salt River and its wonderful street art and murals. We started earlier than usual to avoid the mid day scorcher and must have viewed about 100 different artworks, some of which are very large and cover the full facade of houses and factory buildings. A highlight for me as Landscape architect, was to see how many residents had trees in their gardens and I noticed that many of the murals had a nature theme, with plenty of plants, animals, insects, wildlife and birds. We started and finished a local bakery where the fare was excellent and iced coffee was produced to cool us down.
