We went with Mr. Shaheed, who picked us up from our accommodation in his car. We thought we were just booking a street art tour, but came away with a much more nuanced understanding of Cape Town's recent history. What touched us so much was our guide's sincerity - his profound sense of spirituality, community spirit and passion. Mr. Shaheed has a bit of a "youth guidance counsellor" vibe - he doesn't sugarcoat issues, but he also wants the best for his community. He has a view about almost everything, but was also interested in what we had to say - and he genuinely listened as well as sharing his take on issues. The trip is as much as you make of it, as he was extremely adaptable to whatever question we had, and we found ourselves talking about politics, the economy, immigration, and even at some point, NFTs... :D
This is the second time we visited Cape Town, and in part thanks to him, we have a different understanding of the city. Definitely recommended.
