We were one of the millions of visitors enjoying The V&A Waterfront. Lot's of shops, great restaurants, boat rides and attractions. Surprisingly one of our favorite place was The Chavonnes Battery Museum. South Africa is such a diverse country and learning about the city’s historic harbor was fascinating.
The best part was the walking tour, we stopped at many landmarks that we would not have noticed on our own. Not only was our guide Thandikhaya well informed and articulate, he also had a great sense of humor. Our guide was passionate about his subject, he made the history of the area and the people who lived there come alive for us. I did the tour with my friend but this could also be a great tour with children. Hiring a guide, which is a small fee for international visitors, is a perfect way to help young people earn money.
