Attraction details
Owner description: The Footsteps to Freedom walking tour of the historic heart of Cape Town tells the story of Cape Town and its people. We use streets, buildings, monuments, memorials and the passing street-scene as props develop a story of Cape Town and South Africa's dramatic past. Stories of Dutch and British colonial rule, slavery and apartheid, and finally our peaceful transition to a real democracy.We gather before 10h30 (Mon-Sat) in the lobby of the Taj Cape Town Hotel, located in centre of Cape Town's cultural and historic precinct. At 10h30 the 2½ hr walking tour starts from the steps of the Bishop Robert Gray Memorial, adjacent Taj Cape Town hotel.

Garth is a wonderful guide with a unique ability to provide the history of South Africa as it relates to your home country. He gave us a captivating talk about how South Africa came to be, milestones and where it is today. We then walked through the city and were able to apply that discussion to the sites we saw. It made everything connect and provided context to the city and the country. Garth is a wonderful guide. I wish we'd been able to spend more days with him - I hear he's also an expert on the wine country.

A great tour to continue our understanding of apartheid and the effects on the country. Mike could not have been more energetic, knowledgeable and respectful to all of the residents that we were introduced to. This is a must if you want to really start to get a glimpse into the past, present and future.
