Activity Description

A walking city tour through the inner city of one of the oldest cities in South Africa.

Our city tours start from the Campanile Memorial – an important landmark situated at the entrance to the railway station.We then proceed to follow route 67 – an exciting trail that combines the best elements – both historical and modern-day – of the people and culture of the Eastern Cape. It also pays tribute to Madiba’s 67 years of service to South Africans.

The tour also includes a visit to the Donkin Reserve at Belmont Terrace and the old lighthouse. Here you will find yourself surrounded by a mix of exquisite old Victorian churches; newly renovated, terraced cottages on Donkin Street; and a lighthouse that once guided ships into Algoa Bay, today it provides a panoramic view of the city. Other attractions include: Fort Frederick, City Hall, Market Square, the city library and St Georges park, the oldest cricket ground in South Africa.

Be sure to get a picture next to a large metal cut-out of Nelson Mandela, fist raised in triumph, leading a line of South Africans representing the voters who cast their ballots in the country’s first democratic elections on 27 April 1994.

The tour guide was outstanding, professional, friendly and well informed. I enjoyed the walk as it was also a stretch out of my comfort zone. - Busisiwe Ngwenya

Great walking tour with Stafford as my guide. Despite some attractions being closed on account of it being Sunday, we had a nice walk and I got to hear many interesting stories about the city. - Ann-Christin Gramming
